Not Wicked Enough

Carolyn Jewel. Berkley Sensation, $7.99 mass market (320p) ISBN 978-0-425-24660-3
Miss Lily Wellstone visits her best friend, hoping to improve Ginny’s lingering postwidowhood depression. Unexpectedly, Lily falls into a passionate love affair with Ginny’s older brother, the fittingly named duke of Mountjoy. While buoyant, independent Lily is outwardly trying to breathe life back into the fusty atmosphere of Bitterward with entertainments like treasure hunts and balls, she secretly indulges her more ignoble appetites with the nobleman. But Lily believes love comes but once in a lifetime, and she has already loved and lost, while Mountjoy is all but engaged to another. Readers will enjoy this diverting Regency romance, set refreshingly far from London high society, as they wait to find out what finally drives the lovers to the altar. Agent: Nelson Literary Agency.
