The Importance of Being Wicked by Miranda Neville


The Importance of Being Wicked (The Wild Quartet, #1)Historical Romance
Goodreads summary:
"The rules of society don't apply to Caro and her coterie of bold men and daring women. But when passions flare, even the strongest will surrender to the law of love...
Thomas, Duke of Castleton, has every intention of wedding a prim and proper heiress. That is, until he sets eyes on the heiress's cousin, easily the least proper woman he's ever met. His devotion to family duty is no defense against the red-headed vixen whose greatest asset seems to be a talent for trouble...

Caroline Townsend has no patience for the oh-so-suitable (and boring) men of the ton. So when the handsome but stuffy duke arrives at her doorstep, she decides to put him to the test. But her scandalous exploits awaken a desire in Thomas he never knew he had. Suddenly Caro finds herself falling for this most proper duke...while Thomas discovers there's a great deal of fun in a little bit of wickedness.

This is the first of a four book series centered around a group of badly behaved late-Georgian art collectors."
I ended up with two books with the same title and this one got lost in the process.  I just realized what had happened and now both have been read and reviewed.
I liked this story.  It had two very interesting characters. Thomas and Caro  are a good example of opposites who attract.  They met when Thomas comes to court Caro’s cousin Anne. There is an immediate attraction between the two.  I loved how Caro brought out the fun in Thomas and how Thomas made Caro feel safe.  Trusting was hard for both but once that happened they had a wonderful HEA.
The Importance of Being Wicked is a great start to a new series.  Using Caro and her past as the way to introduce the whole new cast of characters was brilliant.  I hope we will see more of Caro and Thomas as side characters in future books.
Avon published The Importance of Being Wicked by Miranda Neville in 2012,
I received an ARC of The Importance of Being Wicked from Edelweiss.
