Image of The Importance of Being Wicked

Warm, witty and wise is how to best describe Alexander’s delightfully fast-paced Millworth Manor novel. Alexander dazzles readers with her quick repartee, lovely backdrop, sexual tension and pure romance, but it’s the smart characters that will win reader respect and loyalty.

His house in shambles after a devastating fire, Winfield Elliott, Viscount Stillwell, needs someone to rebuild it. Lady Miranda Garret is partner in a firm dedicated to redesigning and building homes. She is well aware of Win’s reputation: Three broken engagements have him labeled a heartbreaker. She should stay away, but she finds him far too charming and tempting for her own good. Win is challenged by the talented, outspoken designer and he decides a little wickedness is in order — a game of seduction, an improper proposal and unexpected passion ensue.
