About the book:

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.

I really enjoyed Caro and Castleton’s story. Caro brings out the best in Thomas. I love the way she is able to make him laugh and have fun. Thomas sees beyond Caro’s scandalous ways to the woman underneath and falls in love with the real her. On the surface these two characters have nothing in common and shouldn’t be together, but they are drawn together in some inexplicable way and are perfect for each other. The writing is fantastic and draws the reader in from the beginning. There are several secondary characters introduced that I’m hoping will get their own books in the future. If you are looking for a sexy and romantic historical romance with a feisty heroine and a stuffy (and sexy) hero THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING WICKED is the book for you.
