promise Nicholas and Derek are infamous rakes in Regency London At the end of the a long evening of drinking they enter into a bet on who is the best lover and record it in the betting book at Whites Caroline is a widow from a bad marriage famous for her ice like demeanor She wants to change her life and to find out if she is really as cold in bed as her abusive late husband believed her to be She contacts the two rakes anonymously and volunteers to be the judge of the bet Both of them are intrigued, especially when they find out her identity Nicholas interest in particular seems to go beyond the sport of the bet Readers should know that Caroline never has sex with Derek See below He book ends on a very sweet and happy note.This is a fun dual romance and a complete fantasy Nicholas heals Caroline s wounds with what the SmartBitches call his Magic Wand of Love But I liked it even if it is very improbable.SPOILER ALERT Some people are concerned that Caroline has sex with two men She only has sex with Nicholas starting with a deliciously long slow seduction of Caroline at a secluded country estate where they spend a week together Dereck has realized he is in love and is miserable because he learned this too late, after the woman he loves was repulsed by his rakish behavior That is why he got drunk and made the bet in the first place He wants out of the bet and Caroline tells him she wasn t going to go through with it anyway Not after she realized she has fallen in love with Nicholas So they collude together to make Nicholas realize he must marry her and make Derek s love realize the same in regard to him This was a pleasant straightforward dual romance, written in a no frills manner A wallpaper historical but so are the majority of them out there are, now a days As

unfolded My main beef with the book was that there was a lot of telling and not showing Don t tell me how intelligent the conversation is Show me That doesnt mean that I need a dissertation on Voltaire but a little incorporation to show that the author and characters know what they are talking about would go a long way.This is Emma Wildes first foray into Mass Market and it s a smooth transition I have read some of her ebooks under her various aliases and this waspolished than anything she has shown so far.Grade B 3.5 stars Two attractive young nobleman embark on a drunken, public wager about which is the better lover, and are very surprised when a notoriously untouchable viscount s widow steps forward volunteering to serve as the anonymous judge Caroline has had a very bad history with marital relations and hopes to discover there sto it than she s experienced Surprise she does indeed.I started this story knowing virtually nothing about it and was kept glued to my ereader while it unfolded 3.5 stars Two attractive young nobleman embark on a drunken, public wager about which is the better lover, and are very surprised when a notoriously untouchable viscount s widow steps forward volunteering to serve as the anonymous judge Caroline has had a very bad history with marital relations and hopes to discover there sto it than she s experienced Surprise she does indeed.I started this story knowing virtually nothing about it and was kept glued to my ereader while it unfolded Which hunky guy would turn out to be the hero Was Caroline really going to get it on with both of them I m really not sure any of this is intended to be a mystery, but just in case, further commentary in the spoiler view spoiler Even after it became clear that the plot was going to proceed onconventional lines, I was a captive audience, eager to find out how Caroline s first lover, Nicholas, was going to react to the fact that she was now supposed to sleep with his friend Nicholas muttered, I sent the note to meet me because I wanted to tell you to be careful with her That s all Careful Yes, careful Gentle Don t rush things Are you truly instructing me on how to bed her His incredulity was tempered by sympathetic amusement I m just saying For the second time Nicholas trailed off, his fingers tightening on his glass hide spoiler So why not a higher rating I found Wildes a better storyteller than a writer The first thing that had me rolling my eyes was the tiresomely cliched nicknames for Derek and Nicholas the Angel and the Devilish Duke Oh please Then there was some really deadly repetition women are all lovely curves, men are all long legs, I was all stop saying all And Nicholas insistence on no strings sex is mentioned so many times, I was tempted to start counting With better editing andtime spent on character development, this could have been an amazing book I will definitely read Wildes again and hope to see her reach her obvious potential I never would have picked this up if reviews had not mentioned that Wildes likes to write about two romances in a single story I am not interested in m nage stories so I picked it up in the hopes that it would develop with two romances I was not disappointed.The main romance is between Lady Wynn and the Duke of Rothay Lady Wynn had an emotionally and physically abusive husband and has been known throughout the ton for an icy facade she adopts to protect herself after her husband died The Duk I never would have picked this up if reviews had not mentioned that Wildes likes to write about two romances in a single story I am not interested in m nage stories so I picked it up in the hopes that it would develop with two romances I was not disappointed.The main romance is between Lady Wynn and the Duke of Rothay Lady Wynn had an emotionally and physically abusive husband and has been known throughout the ton for an icy facade she adopts to protect herself after her husband died The Duke of Rothay, Nicholas, is a handsome man with a reputation for being able to seduce any woman, which he has honed due to a woman s betrayal when he was younger Both of these characters try to put the past behind them and find comfort together This romance had elements of sexual awakening, slow trust building, and very sweet romantic moments.The secondary romance was between the Earl of Manderville and his uncle s ward, Annabel The Earl, Derek, is known as a lady s man, but he has secretly been in love with Annabel for a long time and a foolish decision on his part has seemingly shattered any opportunity that he has with her Annabel had been in love with Derek, but catching him with another woman shortly after he had kissed her turned her love to disgust, and she tried to put her feelings behind her and became engaged to another man This romance lacked the depth of the other and I found myself skimming to get back to the other romance These characters were not well developed and I thought their love for each other was not as deep and they behavedselfishly However, they did have a few memorable scenes, particularly when they crossed over into lady Wynn s and the duke s story.Overall, I really like Wildes writing style It is breezy, nicely detailed, and romantic I will definitely be readingby her.One note for future readers There are a few instances of use of the f word I am not a fan of this, but in this story, it was used for deliberate crudity to inspire a reaction in another character and it made sense It was used very infrequently so it was not an issue This story of rakes and love and an icy widow should be charming but pedestrian, but something about how it is written, the way the characters are so well described, and how the book didn t dwell on the physical perfections of all the protagonists, which always drives me nuts, although they are, of course, perfect, really appealed to me, and I found myself enjoying itandas I read it It is a wonderful love story. 3 1 2 stars London s two most notorious rakes have placed a very public wager on which of them is the greatest lover But what woman of beauty, intelligence, and discernment would

which of them is the greatest lover But what woman of beauty, intelligence, and discernment would consent to judge such a contest Lady Carolyn Wynn is the last woman anyone would expect to step

wondered how a Historical Romance was going to pull this off, the heroine sleeping with two men and judging which one was the better lover It sounded very intriguing and different and I just had to read it The first half of the book was a disappointment to me I like to get to know the characters and feel the longing and want and tension between the hero and heroine before they jump into bed together, especially in a Historical Romance But they wasted no time in getting into bed and I just wasn t into it But about half way in to the book it got better A lot better The book ended up beinglike two stories under one cover It actually had 2 Heroines and 2 Heroes The first two were the Duke of Rothay and Lady Caroline Wynn and the second two were the Earl of Manderville and Lady Annabelle her last name escapes me at this time I loved the story between the Earl and Annabelle I wish they had their own book, I would have loved to go deeper into their lives and relationship.I don t want to give anything else away about the book, so if you are as intrigued as I was and you don t mind hopping right into bed with your characters from the beginning, then go ahead and read the book It will be worth your time and maybe you too will be shouting at the end YES, there s going to be a duel , oops I said I wouldn t give anything else away Sorry, I just get so excited over a duel, don t you I finally finished this and now regret that I put it down so many times before starting it LOL I loved it the description of the book is just a tad deceiving but will definitely grab the person looking for a unique plot I loved all the characters I don t want to give too much away but I think it is well worth the read This was a very intriguing plot Very unconventional for the time period, but DELICIOUS Never a dull moment Couldn t imagine how it all would work out The best part was it had two heroes and two heroines to double the pleasure Loved the ending Highly Recommend Sensuality
