This is the first book i have read of this author and i must say it was good. No villans as such bad a very bad hero. The heroine (Grace) knows he is bad but she can also see the good in him and is confused. He never pretends to be anything but himself. For a wager he is to seduce her and the whole book is about that but it is well paced. The transformation of their relationship is believable. A good read. If you enjoyed Loretta Chase - the Knave's wager and Lord of Scondrels than you will enjoy this book which is the 3rd of the Merry Widows Trilogy: In the Thrill of the Night (1), Just One of Those Flings (2), Lady Be Bad (3).
