Description from the book:

Who will be the last man standing?

No man in his right mind would want to get married, but every duke, earl, and viscount knows that a fellow must do his duty in the end. So four of London’s most desirable gentlemen make a wager–the prize going to the one who remains unwed the longest.

Gideo Pearsall, Viscount Warton, thinks he has a fair shot at winning. After all, he’s managed to enjoy the favors of many a lady while resisting the parson’s noose. Even when he’s stopped dead in his tracks by the most scandalous woman in all of London–Judith, Lady Chester–he vows to have her bedded but never wedded.

Beautiful, and more than a little bit naughty, Judith has always kept herself within the bounds of respectability, even while playing by her own rules. And the experience has taught her to avoid marriage. She has no desire to resist Warton’s host kisses, and his tempting touch is impossible to ignore.

But soon both Judith and Gideon can’t help but wonder . . . is it possible to be a little bit wicked and still follow your heart?

My Thoughts:

This book was worth a read. Judith and Gideon were a bit irritating in their hesitation to acknowledge their love for each other. However, not really too irritating. Lady Victoria Braxton, who manipulated a younger Gideon to make her fiance jealous was plain annoying. I could have done without her. Gideon’s Aunt Louisa was a rather interfering type – but I guess she really seemed to care about her nephew. All in all, I can’t wait to read the next installment of this series.
