Meredith Duran captured the hearts of historical romance readers with the enchanting BOUND BY YOUR TOUCH and WRITTEN ON YOUR SKIN. Now, Pocket Books is pleased to be publishing her newest delectable Regency Era tale, WICKED BECOMES YOU (Pocket Books; May 2010; $7.99).
When a beloved society girl is left at the altar, the entire town wants revenge—but the abandoned bride has other ideas.
She is pretty, popular, and rich. But what high society loves most about Gwen Maudsley is how nice she is. So when a cad jilts her on her wedding day, the people of London are out for blood. Gwen reacts differently, deciding that since being nice doesn’t work anymore, it is time to learn to be naughty.
Gwen has just the person in mind to teach her—Alexander de Grey, best friend to her late brother and a notorious rogue. Though his aloof demeanor suggests otherwise, Alex likes Gwen the way she is and wants their relationship to be more than teacher and student. But fearing the secrets from his past will make a future with Gwen impossible, Alex tries to keep his distance.
An educational tour through the glittering casinos of the Riviera turns Alex and Gwen’s friendship into something hotter, darker, and more dangerous. Gwen must convince Alex that his wickedest intentions are exactly what she needs.
I don't read a lot of straight up romance books but this cover just calls out to me and it looks pretty good.
