You must get this amazing book and if you haven’t read the series, well I just don’t know what you’re waiting for.


So realistic that I felt like I was there. Such a great story and setting.


Another magnificent addition to this series.


Tracy Cooper Posey never lets her fans down.


Sch an amazing read. Once I started reading I could not stop till I was finished.


This was one of the greatest books yet, as far as this grand family goes.


I was surprised how much this book actually moved me & read it again, as for loving the whole family & gatherings as I do. I really enjoyed & got totally immersed in this one.


Oh Tracy what a brilliant read yet again, but for some reason this book got to me. Thank you.


Yet another marvelous book by TCP! She has yet to disappoint me.


Pride can get you into a lot of trouble. I really liked this book …


Tracy Cooper-Posey once again manages to create an historical romance with substance.


I absolutely recommend Ashes of Pride and all of Tracy Cooper-Posey’s books.


I love this series and could not wait for this next book and my wait was rewarded. I loved this book


I really enjoyed the heck out of this book. The characters are wonderful and interesting. I almost feel as if they’re out there waiting for us to meet


As usual I found myself totally engrossed in this novel as I was reading it. Tracy’s books have this effect upon me.


Cooper-Posey has such an engaging way of storytelling, that you feel you are actually sitting in the same room, watching the events unfold


The best so far in the continuing saga of the Great Family.


Wow! This one had me from the start! I never expected their story to move me so much!


An angst filled story that had me crying and cheering and blubbering…almost all at once!


This is an amazing story that kept me turning the pages and missing some sleep. I had to find out how the story was going to work out.


An awesome, emotion tugging, marvelous book. Tracy Cooper-Posey has written another great one.


One of many reasons why I like to read Tracy’s stories, it’s never predictable.


A smoldering romance and this is another must-read in the series.

Married in haste, to the wrong man…

Blanche wed Lieutenant Colonel Seymour in search of a hero to replace the French military father she never knew, only to find herself stranded in Northumberland, in a penniless marriage, with no recourse.

Blanche’s cousin, Neil Williams, now a decorated Major, returns from the colonies to rejoin the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers. Her husband, as Neil’s superior officer, makes Neil’s life intolerable, as well as her own.  Blanche learns that the truly courageous are defined by their actions and that Seymour is not one of them, for what he does to Neil defies imagination…

This book is the tenth book in the Scandalous Scions series, bringing together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

$4.99 USDBook can be read on all devices and apps. [More info]

Awesome! The tale of a daring and passionate woman.

The heart-warming story of a woman navigating her way through the challenges of learning how to be an independent woman in Victorian England. A lovely easy read with no angst or overplayed drama.

What a likeable female lead! Gutsy and passionate with enough doubts and insecurities that we feel empathy for her and her difficult choices. A very interesting exploration of how she finds her way in the art world of Victorian England whilst still keeping her personal life private.

You've got to love that there are no simpering Victorian Miss's! This woman knows what she wants...and luckily her man feels the same way! They are honour bound but their attraction challenges their scruples.

I thoroughly enjoyed the complete immersion of this Victorian-era love story as Tracy Cooper-Posey writes with such heart and attention to detail.

I highly recommend this whole series and especially that it's read in order to get the benefit of all the back stories and character personalities.

Each story of the 11 books are full of interesting aspects of Victorian England and the changes happening during this era as highlighted by the challenges met by TCP's fascinating characters.

I was immersed and intrigued from the start!

I loved it! This is no dreamy romance, instead it's real (for Victorian times), gritty and tragic in the circumstances that lead to our hero winning the day.

From the start I wondered how could the heroine's situation possibly have a good, let alone happy, outcome!?! And I thoroughly enjoyed the tale that revealed how this unfolds!

The lead characters were given depth and personality through the gradually revealed circumstances of their recent histories...both separate from the beloved great families whom I have come to enjoy getting to know (over the course of these 10 books and the previous prequel series too!).

There was attraction and simmering heat a-plenty but I liked that the reader, just like the characters, is kept in suspense a bit more in this book as compared to others in the series (as suits the morality situation of the characters of this story).

I love Tracy Cooper-Posey's writing style for drawing me into a story full of interesting historical detail and a rich tapestry of the social and moral strictures of the Victorian era.

I would highly recommend this latest installment of a brilliant series...I really enjoy how each novel has a fresh approach to various challenges and situations particular to the Victorian era.

Another magnificent addition to this series.

I loved learning in depth the background of the two main characters. The steadfast wife trying all she can to do what is expected, and learning to late that her husband is not what she believed him to be. The family member who realized he made a monumental error by staying away and now is paying for it.

The details we get from the author, about life in the service during this time, is illuminating. The harshness of the rules, the purchasing of rank, is used in this story to show what a man is willing to do to keep his place and honor, whether they deserve it or not.

The story let's us know that it is never too late for true love; one must fight for it when the time is right, or all can be lost.

Author Tracy Cooper Posey never lets her fans down. You must get this amazing book and if you haven't read the series, well I just don't know what you're waiting for.

So realistic that I felt like I was there. Such a great story and setting. And historical accuracy! I don’t know how Tracy Cooper-Posey does it.

The relationships between the characters, their actions and attitudes reminds me of people who I have met throughout my life. Some were like Seymour, and others like Neil. Ashes of Pride is an engaging story that you will not be able to put down.

Ashes of Pride is the 10th instalment in the Scandalous Scions series, and how the author manages to keep it fresh, it still amazes me.

This story of Blanche and Neil and how they found each other in the most terrible circumstances. I love how Blanche comes through not as a spoiled brat for having rushed a very important decision but as a more mature woman as a result. Very empathetic, indeed. It can totally be relatable to the present day.

Moreover, I'm very eager how other plots are getting to a conclusion too, such as Lilly, can't wait to see her retribution. Just give it a go already 😉

Having read all the books leading up to this one, I am so looking forward to see how much trouble can be dropped into this loving & so friendly family, who have their yearly meets together with everyone.
