SCANDALOUS DESIRES . . .
Amy Hardwick has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can't, she'll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security-if little else. What she doesn't count on is the inappropriate-and irresistible-attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will "The Devil" Darcett . . .
When Will is caught in a tryst with the ton's shyest miss, he knows he must offer for her hand. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet she seems to be. Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn't simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he's mended his wicked ways . . .
I love Vicky's books. They are full of love, and have a great story plot.
Poor Amy is starting to feel like a spinster. She is tired of looking for Mr.Right, so she is taking care of herself!! She has always had a keen eye for design, and loves to draw all sorts of dresses.
At a get together, where she shows off her newest designs, she makes an arrangement with her dress maker to sell the designs and make a small commission. Even though this is taboo for women to make money.
Each night at one of the balls, Amy shows off her newest design. She soon attracts the attention of Will Darcett, a notorious rake who loves to play games.
When Amy and Will are caught in a not so appropriate situation (very funny) they both realize they need to marry for proprieties sake.
They both keep secrets from each other in an attempt to save the other from hurt.
I don't want to ruin the book by giving away any other information, but I will say this... I loved it!!!! The ending was a little predictable, and left me wanting more, but it was the ending that I wanted!!!
If you are looking for a great romance book that literally starts off under the worst conditions, this is the book for you!!
