WICKED BECOMES YOU
Duran fulfills readers' needs for romantic stories, original characters and delightful plotlines. There's so much fun to be had in her latest tale featuring a good girl who wants to be bad and the bad boy who wants her; it's charming and deliciously sensual from beginning to end.
After being left at the altar -- again -- the ton's golden girl, Gwen Maudsley, decides that being nice, sweet and rich isn't enough. Maybe it's time to be wicked -- and she knows just the man to teach her how!
Alexander Ramsey, her late brother's best friend, has known Gwen all her life. He's watched her get jilted and he's relieved because he is secretly in love with her. As one of the ton's most notorious rogues, he cannot hope to vie for her hand, but when she comes to him for lessons in wickedness he fears he'll be tempted to teach her much more. As they embark on a trip to Paris and then across Europe, their relationship shifts into a sensual game where Gwen's desire to be wild collides with Alex's past. (POCKET, May, 380 pp., $7.99)
