Overview

Fans of the historical romances of Sabrina Jeffries, Loretta Chase, and Jo Beverly will enjoy this sexy, award-winning romance by New York Times bestselling author Candice Hern.

John Grayston, seventh Viscount Rochdale, has never refused a wager, especially one that involves enticing a beautiful woman into his bed. He’s willing to stake his most prized possession that there’s not a single woman in all England immune to his charms. But when the object of the wager is the prim and proper Grace Marlowe, he has to turn on the full force of his seductive charm.

Grace’s stalwart virtue is put to the test when the infamous rake shows an unexpected interest in her. Outraged, flattered, and reluctantly attracted, she soon finds herself falling under the spell of the man behind the scandalous reputation. Rochdale, in turn, is delighted to discover a fiery passion beneath the widow’s prudish façade. But when hearts and lives become tangled in the gamble, the truth of his seduction could ruin everything.

"Exquisitely sensual, brilliantly plotted, and laced with wicked wit, this latest addition to Hern's "Merry Widows" series sparkles with rare fire as its sheltered heroine comes into her own in the arms of a charming rascal and learns just how rewarding it is to be 'bad'." – Library Journal

"Richly nuanced characters, wickedly subtle wit, and elegantly sensual style." -- BookList

"Perfect! Absolutely, positively, without a doubt, LADY BE BAD is an utterly perfect read!" – Romance Reader at Heart

    Very well done

    This book was a very different style that Ms. Hern's other Regency romances, but still highly enjoyable and well-written. I probably should have started with the first book, but it was fine as a stand alone. I will definitely check out the others.

    What is it about the saint and the sinner that always draws me i

    What is it about the saint and the sinner that always draws me in? 




    The Merry Widows made a pact to take lovers but retain their independence and never remarry. Grace has always listened
    to their frank discussions but has never participated in their discussions. As the widow of a prominent bishop, Grace was taught
    that she needed to control her baser urges and deny her sexuality. Enter Viscount Rochdale. Notorious libertine who created scandal
    by refusing to marry a young ingenue. One night, Lord Rochdale bets his horse, a beloved horse, that he could seduce any woman
    in London. Predictability ensues. 




    I did enjoy Grace and John's interactions, the courtship, the interplay. The novel was not without problems though. Grace does all the
    bending while John does very little. And the ending is too abrupt. Without giving too much away, John accuses Grace of something
    horrific, quickly realizes his mistake, and then just like that, she forgives him. The end. For that reason, I gave this book 4 stars.
