After ten years of adventure, Colin Smith, the bastard son of a viscount, returns to the place he most despises ––London. But only until he can sell off some of his treasures. He has no use for the stifling rules of the ton, but he’s more than happy to play the game if it gets him what he wants.

Lady Claire, daughter of a marquess, is everything Colin loathes about the ton, but she is determined to win him over. Her life is a catalogue of dances and evening gowns, and thanks to an eidetic memory, she can remember every blasted, boring second of it. A treasure hunt for the Cleopatra Emerald promises adventure, but Claire wants more. If she can convince Colin Smith to take her with him as he travels the world, then she’ll have the life she’s always dreamed of. There’s just one problem, he doesn’t seem to like her much.

But Lady Claire loves a good challenge and the intellectual beauty may be on her way to the grandest adventure of all.

Praise

A treasure of a book.” -Marie A., Goodreads

“This was a very delightful tale.  Full of great characters with so many quirky traits.  The story evolves with much wit and a bit of wisdom too.” -Marlene S., NetGalley

A charming regency romance!” -Erika C., NetGalley

This book was so much fun! I've been on a bit of a romance binge at the moment, and Wicked with the Scoundrel was the perfect addition to it. The romance was so sweet. I love how Claire set out to seduce him, and Colin fell right into her trap. She may have been innocent, but her confidence shined through.” -Isabel C., Goodreads

I loved Colin and Claire's story!!” -Amy A., NetGalley

“This was such a cute and funny historical romance!” -Lubnaa Reads

I adored this book. I'm such a fan of smart heroines, and for all her naivety, Claire was more than a match for Colin. When it came down to it, she wasn't afraid to fight for not only the adventure she craved, but the man she loved. I'm going to go back to get the first two in the series, because... ...more

I thought this was going to end sooner than it did.

I liked this story, the characters had a good balance of positive and negative traits, and I liked that they liked each other for those "negative" traits, not in spite of those traits.
