Miss Frederica “Free” Marshall was a woman who had started her own paper that was written by women and for women. She will quickly find that she had made an enemy and one man will be there to help her.
Edward Clark wanted revenge against his brother for what James was going to do to Stephan. He will find himself helping out Stephan’s employer who was another target of James.
The Suffragette Scandal is the fourth book from the series Brother Sinister by Courtney Milan. I really loved this book.
Free’s character was really fantastic. She had been mentioned early on and had a small part here and there through the series but it was now her turn. She was a woman who wanted to change the world. She was making sure that women had a voice through her paper. She was fearless with all that she did but she wasn’t completely fearless as the things that she had done gave her nightmares at times. Then there is Edward’s character that is out for revenge against his brother who had abandoned him at war. Edward also wanted to set things right for the men who were his true family. Now even though Edward’s character was pretty cruel at times with his blackmail schemes he will show that he is someone who wants more when it comes to Free.
Free and Edward would not have worked if he had been a nobleman but he had renounced that title, at least for now. She falls for the man that Edward had become. Now they have that insistent mistrust when dealing with each other but that will change when feelings start to get involved.
The villain in this piece was certainly James, Edward’s brother. He was not the most evil villain but he was definitely a bad guy especially with what he will attempt to do to Free and what he did to his own brother.
I will be reading the Stephan’s story next.
