NOT WICKED ENOUGH
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Jewel’s latest addition to her Reforming the Rakes series reinforces her reputation for writing character-driven, subtle, but highly emotional tales readers will take to their hearts.
Lily Wellstone, a wealthy and educated young woman, attempts to comfort her widowed friend by traveling to her brother’s estate. She arrives on a rainy night and encounters the Duke of Mountjoy. Both experience emotional sparks and turmoil. Formerly a farmer, Mountjoy unexpectedly inherited the title when several family members died, and he takes his responsibilities seriously. He finds Lily’s playful personality and sincere efforts to help his sister eye-opening. He realizes that there is more to life than duty. As Lily and Mountjoy spend time together their emotions reach new levels, but is it real or just the magic from a Gypsy medallion? (BERKLEY, Feb., 320 pp., $7.99)
