Overview

She's got nothing left to lose …

With her fiancé suddenly engaged to another and her reputation in tatters, Merribeth Wakefield needs a bold plan to reclaim her life. She must be brave. Confident. She must … kiss a rake? The suggestion is ludicrous! Yet when Merribeth finds herself alone with the dark and brooding Lord Knightswold, suddenly the plan doesn't seem so farfetched. So she does something she never thought she'd do—she kisses him.

But he has everything to gain …

The Marquess of Knightswold—Bane to most—has no use for the affections of women. Well, none lasting longer than a single night. A plot for revenge weighs heavy on his mind, leaving no room for romance. But then a shy, witty miss borrows a kiss from him in a darkened room, and everything he thought he knew about innocent debutantes vanishes along with her.

When a twist of fate brings Merribeth within Bane's grasp, he'll have to resist her charms—or risk losing everything—for the sake of his heart.

Loved the second book in this trilogy. Maribeth has been waiting for her almost fiancee to propose for five years. On the day she feels certain he is to propose, he dumps her instead. As they say, the best way to get over someone . . . Well, straight into the arms of Bane, notorious rake, she goes. The story line is pretty standard. Wallflower meets rake, he reforms upon realizing that she is the only person in the world who can complete him. But this story was truly charming. Even if the secondary character of Lady Eve and her beau could have been explored a tad more fully or made a tad more sense. Still, the main story is sure to capture your fancy for a good, fun couple of hours.

The characters are so well matched emotionally and intelectually it's a wonder they stayed apart so long. Terrific dialogue, humor and plot.

I liked the caracters and i thought for the most part the plot was believeable. I liked that thr girl wasnt the 'stunning beauty that was perfect' he liked her for her personality. Also that they got to know each other before sleepimg together. Ending was unbeliveable but i think the author wanted to get it with everythinng bein perfect so whatever.

Merribeth is practically ruined after her beau of five years deserts her for another. A friend puts it in her head kissing a rake would help her be more confident. If only that rake weren't Lord Knightswold. He truly is irresistable, yet he's determined to remain a bachelor and never have an heir. Bane, aka Lord Knightswold, can't seem to stay away from Merribeth. So, he'll help her lure her ex back by teacher her to flirt. Merribeth just wants to be herself and not worry about what the Ton thinks. Though she didn't truly want her ex back she felt it was the only way to save herself. She has a true strength and fun wit that kept me attached to her story from beginning to end. In this story Bane is the willful one. Yet he's so charming and caring that it's easily overlooked for this handsome Lord. Merribeth and Bane gravitate to each other throughout the story whether intentional or not. Their attraction is explosive and undeniable. If you enjoy a super steamy historical romance with an unlikely couple I recommend Winning Miss Wakefield.

I liked the characters. I did think he gave up a bit to easy but I figure that was from guilt. All and all good story.
