Image of AN Indecent Proposition (Signet Eclipse)

Wickedly delicious and daring, Wildes' tale tantalizes with an erotic fantasy that is also a well-crafted Regency romance. She delivers a page-turner that captures the era, the mores and the scandalous behavior that lurks beneath the surface.

A scandalous wager to name the greatest lover in England pits Nicholas, Duke of Rothay, and Derek, Earl of Manderville, as rivals for the title. But who would dare place herself as the judge?

Lady Caroline Wynn, the "ice widow," is beyond reproach, yet she's never tasted passion. This is her opportunity to indulge her secret desires. It's difficult to know who's more shocked by her offer, but Nicholas proposes she spend a week with each man before choosing the winner. He and Caroline meet at his isolated country home and embark on a sensual journey of both body and soul.

Meanwhile, Derek discovers his childhood friend is engaged and needs to change her mind before it's too late for him. Treading the edge of scandal, he plots his seduction and the means to satisfy his heart and soul. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Apr., 336 pp., $6.99)
