Publisher Comments:

She’s been burned not once but twice by London’s so-call ed gentlemen . . .

Gwen Maudsley is pretty enough to be popular, and plenty wealthy, too. But what she’s best known and loved for is being so very, very nice. When a cad jilts her at the altar—again—the scandal has her outraged friends calling for blood. Only Gwen has a different plan. If nice no longer works for her, then it’s time to learn to be naughty. Happily, she knows the perfect tutor—Alexander Ramsey, her late brother’s best friend and a notorious rogue.

So why won’t a confirmed scoundrel let her be as bad as she wants to be?

Unbeknownst to Gwen, Alex’s aloof demeanor veils his deepest unspoken desire. He has no wish to see her change, nor to tempt himself with her presence when his own secrets make any future between them impossible. But on a wild romp from Paris to the Riviera, their friendship gives way to something hotter, darker, and altogether more dangerous. With Alex’s past and Gwen’s newly unleashed wildness on a collision course, Gwen must convince Alex that his wickedest intentions are exactly what she needs.

About the Author

Meredith Duran blames Anne Boleyn for sparking her lifelong obsession with British history (and for convincing her that princely love is no prize if it doesn’t come with a happily-ever-after). She spends her free time collecting old etiquette manuals, guidebooks to nineteenth century London, and travelogues by intrepid Victorian women. Visit her website at MeredithDuran.com.

This was my first time reading Meredith Duran and I wasn't disappointed. Great historical, sexy hero, a woman who just wants to be independent. Read it. You won't be sorry!

I have to say that Wicked Becomes Her is my first Meredith Duran romance novel and once I finished it, I immediately wanted to read her earlier books!

Wicked Becomes Her works so well -- I love historical romance novels with smart, funny, daring and supremely loyal women. Gwen Maudsley is one of my favorite romantic leads with her hidden depths, quick wit, sharp mind, and loyal soul. I loved that she's abandoned at the altar twice and has to face the ton's gossip - and responds with a flash of spirit! Meredith Duran had me chuckling from the start!

The other romantic lead measures up as well. I love it when the heroes appear dissolute but prove otherwise. And when I come across a book with dialogue that has me laughing out loud and characters as fun as Gwen and Alex, I carefully keep the book to enjoy another day.

If you enjoy historical romances and are looking for a fun, romantic escape, get yourself a copy of Meredith Duran's Wicked Becomes You. Put your phone on silent and turn off your blackberry - you won't want to be interrupted!
