Not Wicked Enough

He was tall with dark hair and an ill-fitting and very wet greatcoat about his broad shoulders. Raindrops darkened his worn boots and glistened in his hair. His eyes were deep-set and private. This was a man who did not share his secrets, a man who could only be unraveled bit-by-tortuous-bit. Not for a moment did she mistake him for a fellow caller, though his clothes were hardly better than something a country squire might wear.

About Not Wicked Enough

Cover of Not Wicked Enough

She’s a heartbroken socialite. He’s a roguish bore. A mysterious relic stirs their hearts like magic.

“Brilliant, poignant... and just plain fun. I loved it.” (Courtney Milan)

Lily Wellstone lost her chance at true love when the man of her dreams was killed in the war. She has to laugh when a gypsy gifts her a medallion that supposedly has the power to connect a person with their perfect love. When she visits her newly-widowed best friend Eugenia, she can’t help but be fascinated by the brooding, handsome Duke of Mountjoy.

Mountjoy would rather deal with business than spend five minutes socializing at a party, but when he sees his sister Eugenia’s beautiful friend Lily, money doesn’t seem nearly as appealing. He’s practically engaged and she’s nowhere close to his type. He resists the temptation, but some rules were meant to be broken.

Not Wicked Enough is a Regency historical romance novel. If you like scandalous romance, witty main characters, and passionate lovemaking, then you’ll fall for Carolyn Jewel’s smart, steamy tale.

What They’re Saying

Publishers Weekly

Miss Lily Wellstone visits her best friend, hoping to improve Ginny’s lingering postwidowhood depression. Unexpectedly, Lily falls into a passionate love affair with Ginny’s older brother, the fittingly named duke of Mountjoy. While buoyant, independent Lily is outwardly trying to breathe life back into the fusty atmosphere of Bitterward with entertainments like treasure hunts and balls, she secretly indulges her more ignoble appetites with the nobleman. But Lily believes love comes but once in a lifetime, and she has already loved and lost, while Mountjoy is all but engaged to another. Readers will enjoy this diverting Regency romance, set refreshingly far from London high society, as they wait to find out what finally drives the lovers to the altar.

I adored, absolutely adored, how Mountjoy grows to call Lily Wellstone. That is just so sweet and personal to me. Oh, and the ending. Sigh. You can feel the love between Lily and Mountjoy and the last chapter left me with a huge smile and happy sigh so big that I immediately read it again. Romantic to a T. Overall, a entrancing romance that will leave you happily satisfied and looking forward to the next story in the series! I know I can’t wait for it!
