FIRST SENTENCE: "And now there are three," Oliver Leighton, the Earl of Norcroft, said under his breath.

SUMMARY: [From barnesandnoble.com] Nigel Cavendish knows he'll marry one day, but hopefully that day is many years—and many women—in the future! Until then, the handsome, unrepentant rake intends to enjoy life's pleasures to the fullest!

From the moment Lady Felicity Melville spies the adventurous scoundrel climbing from a neighbor's window—with his comely conquest's husband in hot pursuit—she knows Nigel is the answer to her prayers . . . with a little reformation, of course! Felicity craves excitement and who in all of London is more exciting than the infamous Mr. Cavendish? So what's a girl to do but hatch a scheme to win what she so fervently desires. But her plan works too well when a game of chance and an errant pistol shot abruptly make them husband and wife—but in a way neither wanted.

Now Felicity has to prove to her wayward husband that she's the only woman he could ever want . . . or need!

REASON FOR READING: Victoria Alexander has never been bad.

THOUGHTS: I waited far too long to review this book. I honestly don't remember much about it anymore, which is a bad sign. But, I do remember enjoying it immensely. Alexander does a great job of adding a different spin on the classic Regency characters and plot devices. Aside from that, I can't remember a whole lot. *sheepish grin*

Actually, I remember thinking the Nigel was a tad bit too stubborn and it began to grate on me. Aside from that, nothing stuck out as being overly negative.

MISCELLANEOUS: I actually like the cover.

KEEP/SHARE/CRINGE(?): Already on PBS.
RATING: 6/10 [Good]
