Publisher's Summary

He wants her, she wants revenge.

Practiced rake Roman Alexander never meant to seduce his best friend's sister. He certainly never intends to do it again. The handsome scoundrel has never felt more compelled to be a better man. But the damage has been done, for his buttoned-up spinster refuses to marry a bounder like him - and maddeningly, she doesn't seem to like him. Nevertheless, he can't seem to forget her, or her passionate response to his kisses. How much danger could there be in one more try?

Practical headmistress Lucy Lancester naively believes her charming rogue has moved on to his next conquest, leaving her free to cherish their one night together for the rest of her bluestocking days. Until the afternoon he arrives at her school intent on proving their one night together wasn't enough - and this time, the scandal can't be contained. Well, two can play at that. How hard can it be to ruin a rake?

    "Bluestocking makes him want to be a better man"

    I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    Roman Alexander, never meant to ruin his best friend's sister. Twice. But there they were, on the desk,in flagrante delicto, when the door opened. Lucy Lancester was fired from the girls' school she founded, and her name was linked with the Marquess in the rag sheets and she is turned out of polite society. When Lucy declines his offer of marriage--twice--Roman must take a cold, hard look in the mirror and face that he does not like the shiftless degenerate he has become. After falling prey to his wiles not once, but twice, it is clear enough Roman's imagination is not running away with him, so why did Lucy seduce him in the first place if only to rebuff him later? Is there any hope for him to ever win her heart? Can Roman change his habits and be worthy of him in her eyes? Society's? His own?

    This story is by turns delightful, laugh-out-loud funny, and yet poignant and painful as Roman grapples not just with his relationship with Miss Lancester, but also with his brothers and making a place for himself in their business. The dialogue is inspired, and the depth of Roman and Lucy's characters is rare. I am looking forward to reading more books in the Naughty Girls Series.

    "It opened slowly"

    This story gathered momentum but erotica was a little over done in places.

    If you are into erotica you will enjoy this book.
