THE NAKED GENTLEMAN
Hilarity reigns as a queen of love and laughter crafts another "naked" book designed to keep you smiling. This delicious romance blends MacKenzie's hallmark humor with a cast of unforgettable characters and loads of sensuality.
Practical John Parker–Roth isn't a man to get caught in a scandal. His interest in horticulture keeps him far from London, until his mother compels him to attend the season.
He's in the garden when Miss Margaret Peterson needs assistance. Though he rescues her from a true cad,
it appears to the ton that he's compromised the lady when all he did was answer her request for a kiss. Margaret is sure they'll avoid scandal, but with their matchmaking families in cahoots and their own passions raging out of control, it's difficult for them to continually deny the attraction and the path that leads to the altar.
