Mari Powel's fiery Welsh temper is up. Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly, is back in town after six years romping around India making his fortune. Mari blames him for her social downfall and has spent all this time clawing her way back into the town's good graces. How dare he show up on his first day back and publicly embroil her in a bet involving long-awaited apologies, illicit kisses, and Lady Illston's unruly parakeet?
Mari is outraged and is going to show him - and everyone else - what she's made of. Little does she know, the unrepentant Lord Whitly has been dreaming of her all this time. Now he'll do anything to win the wager - along with Mari's heart.

"The latest in Lee's sexy Rakes and Rogues series brilliantly showcases the author's flair for humor with a surfeit of sparkling dialogue and laughter-laced scenes." (Booklist)
The author using any other word but "wayward". It was so over used, it became silly. Like the first book, where "cricket princess" was the repeated phrase, in this one the author chose "wayward". I don't understand why she thinks this is cute It is just bad writing and a very lazy style..
I never understand this question. Audible should really get rid of it or think of something more applicable to a book review. I don't have a thought about another book...I'm reviewing this one!
It was a little stilted , but she could not really do anything with sucha bad plot.
She made the heroine sound pompous, but maybe that was the story.
All the weird butlers. I have never read a book where everyone's butler is a little off.
I was just so bored that I don't really care who was in or out of the book.
I didn't understand the plot. The hero is a wealthy ( or we think so), handsome, smart, exciting, accepting of the heroine and funny. She is attracted to him. He proposes at the 4.5 hour mark..then there is another 7.5 hours to kill. I don't understand why the heroine did not jump at the chance to marry him. She is in her 6th season and really wants to marry.
The hero also makes a friend of her father, so no objections. I could not even find the spark of chemistry between the h/h and am bored at the half way point. I am giving up and DNF.
