Dashing Lord Harry Traemore is perfectly content to live out his days in the pursuit of pleasure. But when he’s named by the Prince Regent as one of society’s “Impossible Bachelors,” Harry is drafted into a ribald romantic wager. The rules of engagement are scandalously simple: The bachelor whose mistress wins the title of “Most Delectable Companion” gets to remain unmarried. Harry is utterly unconcerned about his status...until his latest lightskirt abandons him.
Enter Lady Molly Fairbanks. Harry’s childhood friend— actually, “foe” is more like it—is the most unlikely companion of all. She’s attractive but hot-headed, and in no mood for games. Besides, what could the self-indulgent Harry possibly know about what makes a woman delectable? It’s time for Molly to teach him a lesson once and for all...but will it lead to “happily ever after”?
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Picked this up at my library and I'm glad I did! I felt bad for Harry and all the Bachelors victim to Prinny's commands but I love how it turned out! I love the start of the book where Molly, who loves her sisters fiancee, writes a poem talking about the fiancee's younger brother, Harry, kissing Molly's Sister! A huge fight follows, where Molly is told she is going to the country and not to london for school and Harry is to join the service! Thus sets the scene for Harry and Molly's great hate for each other. Years later they find themselves stranded at a Inn and they need each other to get out of their problems. The week Molly spends as Harry's Pretend Mistress are HILARIOUS! I love the romance the slowly forms and burns for each of them and I LOVE the ending. Just such a fun book to read and great all around!
