ALL HE WANTS IS TO WIN THE BET...BUT WHAT IF THE PRIZE IS MORE THAN HE BARGAINED FOR?
There's nothing Nicholas Pryce, Viscount Someton, and his friends like more than an outrageous wager. And there's nothing Wilhelmina Culpepper, daughter of an overbearing evangelist preacher, wants more than to get away from her father. When Wilhelmina becomes the unwitting victim of a jovial kidnapping caper by Nick & company, she decides to hatch a plan of her own- one that causes her disgraced father to promptly disown her.
Nick soon realizes the trouble he's caused, and he offers to take Willie in, even make her his wife. But Willie, a true romantic, laughs off his proposal: after all, how could two people thrown together because of a prank ever really fall in love? But with nowhere else to turn, Willie volunteers to stay on as Nick's housekeeper...and soon their affection for each other becomes more than just a lark. Could it be that a little tomfoolery is just what it takes to make the perfect match?

This book had a lot of funny parts. Especially when she hires a whole new staff for his home. Not exactly what one would find in a Viscount's home!

In 1816 an intoxicated Viscount Nicholas Pryce knows that the honor of his group of rowdies the Dashers are at stake to defeat their rivals the Blades who put down the gauntlet. The Dashers must come up with something unique quite shortly if they want to win 1000 pounds. Nicholas suggests they parade a virgin. His target is the daughter of the brimstone and fire Reverend Culpepper. His group abducts Wilhelmina, show her to their opponents, and win the bet.

Wilhelmina sees Nicholas as an opportunity to elude a proposed bad marriage to her hypocritical father's chosen one so she remains in his bedroom over night. To his surprise, she refuses his offer of marriage, but accepts employment. As she disrupts his lifestyle, causing his staff to walk out in protest over his failure to do the honorable thing, they fall in love. However, can a commoner's daughter who has brought hookers and thieves into his home and a blue blood find happiness especially when she refuses to wed him.

Opposites attract when Vicount Somerton and his men of the Dashers Club abduct evangelist preacher's daughter Wilhelmina Culpepper (who happens to want to avoid a trip to India and a marriage to the abominable Rev. Smithe). Funny plot line, especially after his staff quits and is replaced with a group of ne'er do wells of questionable background. Plot drug a little bit in some spots, but it was an OK read overall.
