A Little Bit Wicked
Victoria Alexander

Romance Historical

The wager has been set and the battle has begun between four friends struggling to remain single for as long as possible. Each knows that eventually they will have to succumb to the shackles of matrimony, though each is certain that dreaded state is in the very distant future. Of course, the wager of a shilling a piece and a fine Cognac makes each even more determined to win. Gideon, Nigel, Oliver and Daniel -- who will be the Last Man Standing?

Gideon Pearsall, Viscount Wharton, is sure he has a good chance of winning the wager, until he encounters the lovely Lady Chester. Judith intrigues Gideon from the moment he sees her sneaking from the room to avoid a boring poetry reading. A widow for the past 10 years, Judith lives by her own code, maintaining her respectability in society yet enjoying a few adventures through the years. Gideon admires her independence and desires his own adventure with the beauty. They enjoy their time together until a woman from Gideon's past returns to London, seeking to make him her second husband through fair means or foul.

Victoria Alexander's A LITTLE BIT WICKED is a delightfully fun romp through Regency England. The rules of society are simply made to be broken, and Judith and Gideon set out to discretely do just that! Ms. Alexander imbues their story with wit and romance that will keep you turning the pages and trying to guess who will be the next to fall in the battle to be the last man standing.

Who will be the last unmarried man standing?

No man in his right mind would want to get married, but every duke, earl, and viscount knows that a fellow must do his duty in the end. So four of London's most desirable gentlemen make a wager—the prize going to the one who remains unwed the longest.

Gideon Pearsall, Viscount Warton, thinks he has a fair shot at winning. After all, he's managed to enjoy the favors of many a lady while resisting the parson's noose. Even when he's stopped dead in his tracks by the most scandalous woman in all of London—Judith, Lady Chester—he vows to have her bedded but never wedded.

Beautiful, and more than a little bit naughty, Judith has always kept herself within the bounds of respectability, even while playing by her own rules. And the experience has taught her to avoid marriage. She has no desire to resist Warton's hot kisses, and his tempting touch is impossible to ignore.

But soon both Judith and Gideon can't help but wonder . . . is it possible to be a little bit wicked and still follow your heart?
