One bachelor down . . . three more to go. Four most desirable gentlemen have wagered one shilling apiece and a bottle of cognac that will go to the last unmarried man standing . . .
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!
My Rating: 3 out of 5
I enjoyed the romance and heat between Nigel an Felicity. I interactions between the two are funny and frustrating at times. I got a little sick of their almost making up then comes a surprise and they fight and separate. It happens a few times in the story and by the end I was saying enough already. Though I do quite love the ending. And over all it's a great story and great second story in the series. I am very interested to see how the series ends and how the next two bachelors meet their 'fate'
