What a Lady Wants - Last Man Standing, Bk 2 Author:Victoria Alexander A resourceful lady in love will always get what she wants -- but will the cost be too dear to bear? — ONE BACHELOR DOWN... THREE MORE TO GO. — Four most desirable gentlemen have wagered one shilling apiece and a bottle of cognac that will go to the last unmarried man standing... — Nigel Cavendish knows he'll marry one day, but hopefully that da... more »y is many years -- and many women -- in the future! Until then, the handsome, unrepentant rake intends to enjoy life's pleasures to the fullest!
From the moment Lady Felicity Melville spies the adventurous scoundrel climbing from a neighbor's window -- with his comely conquest's husband in hot pursuit -- she knows Nigel is the answer to her prayers... with a little reformation, of course! Felicity craves excitement and who in all of London is more exciting than the infamous Mr. Cavendish? So what's a girl to do but hatch a scheme to win what she so fervently desires. But her plan works too well when a game of chance and an errant pistol shot abruptly make them husband and wife -- but in a way neither wanted.
Now Felicity has to prove to her wayward husband that she's the only woman he could ever want... or need!« less
This one was certainly my favorite of the four. It was funny throughout! Even if the hero wasn't my ideal character it was nice to see him flounder through the story. Nice twist on a commonly used plot! I know I laughed out loud at least a dozen times! Definitely a light hearted romp!!
I loved this book. I really enjoyed the characters... they made me laugh and they made me cry. Great read... couldn't stop til it was done. I really liked that the heroine knew who she wanted and went after him... enlisting help along the way.
The only thing that is nagging me about the book is the hidden story of Lady Felicity's parents and Nigel's dad. Were they in an earlier book??
