Never one to refuse a challenge, noted rake and libertine John Grayson, Viscount Rochdale, impulsively accepts a wager and an almost impossible task-seduce the beautiful but virtuous and proper bishop's widow, Grace Marlowe-and he has only three months to do it. Although flustered and confused when Rochdale flirts with her, the woefully inexperienced Grace is fascinated and then attracted in spite of herself. But as the seduction progresses, soon Rochdale is facing a dilemma he'd never contemplated-he must lose the wager in order to protect the reputation of the woman he has come to love. Exquisitely sensual, brilliantly plotted, and traced 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." San Francisco-based Hern (Just One of Those Flings) seamlessly interpolates events and characters from the other series titles, making it a delight for fans while skillfully piquing the interest of new readers.
