I mentioned in yesterday's Sunday Post that I'm so very excited that the wonderful Entangled Publishing has just launched their historical romance line Scandalous. Thanks to NetGalley I already have the three launch titles on my Kindle, but since my electronic TBR pile is as overflowing as my physical book pile, I wanted to take time to profile what looks like three wonderful reads and the beginning of an exceptional line. All 3 are currently available on Amazon and B&N for $2.99 each.
