A novel by

Before she was a minister's wife, she was Jasmine Cox, the most prized dancer at Foxtails. Newly engaged to her high school sweetheart, Kenny Larson, Jasmine knows it's time to leave her secret life behind and settle down. But on the night of her bachelorette party, she meets Roman and their lust-at-first-sight tells Jasmine this man is nothing but bad news. Built like a god yet sinful as dark chocolate, Roman ignites a passion in Jasmine that has long since fizzled out between her and Kenny. When a mindblowing one night stand with Roman turns into another...then another...Jasmine must face the fact that she's full on addicted to a man who isn't her husband--and this secret can only lead to trouble.

A prequel to the Jasmine series, written with Victoria Christopher Murray's trademark twists and electrifying voice, SCANDALOUS is a thrilling peek into Jasmine's world before she becomes the woman we all love to hate.
