This regency romance was very spicy. The devil duke lives up to his name. He’s a jerk of the highest order. But this jerk falls in love, and love might be the only thing strong enough to destroy his bad habits and reputation once and for all. But will he let it. I really enjoyed this story.

Benedict Devlyn, Duke of Banbury needs a wife... or so his meddlesome, incorrigible Aunt Agatha says! Insists, in fact! And Agatha has picked out the perfect wife for him... Lady Katherine Bourne.

It has been three years since Benedict and Katherine have seen each other -- he thinks she is "as clumsy as she is mad" and she thinks he is dull and hopes she won't be ruined just by merely associating with him. Not your recipe for perfect love.

When she sees him, she apologizes for past incidences when she almost killed him (accidentally, of course!) - he asks her to dance - she gets her foot caught and twisted in the bottom of her skirt - he helps her out into the balcony - she loses her balance and kicks him in the head - he falls backward - she tries to see if he is okay and lands on top of him - and before she can extricate herself from that position, they are "discovered" in their accidental compromising position! And everyone is asking when they are going to be married -- in fact, Agatha is insisting on it!

Benedict is determined NOT to marry Katherine - until he realizes she doesn't want to marry him! He is elated and offended at the same time! Agatha and Katherine's parents reach an agreement - he has two weeks (until the Kringle Ball) to change her mind.

It isn't long before he finds himself wanting to marry her -- She provokes, enflames, and intrigues him! He feels totally out of control. Then he gets invited to a 4-day house party by Lord Marks. He accepts hoping to put Katherine in disastrous situations so he can be reminded of all the reasons he doesn't like her. Nothing goes according to plan, and it doesn't even take the full two weeks for both to be irrevocably in love with the other!
