Publisher's Summary

For Winfield Elliott, Viscount Stillwell, finding a prospective bride always seemed easy. Perhaps too easy. With three broken engagements to his name, Win is the subject of endless gossip. Yet his current mission is quite noble: to hire a company to repair his family’s fire-damaged country house. Nothing disreputable in that - until the firm’s representative turns out to be a very desirable widow.
Lady Miranda Garret expected a man of Win’s reputation to be flirtatious, even charming. But the awkward truth is that she finds him thoroughly irresistible. While Miranda resides at Millworth to oversee the work, Win occupies her days, her dreams…and soon, her bed. For the first time, the wicked Win has fallen in love. And what began as a scandalous proposition may yet become a very different proposal.…

Fun in a very safe way

This story is about Miranda, a modern day, free thinking widow and Winfield Elliot, a man who likes his world to be predictable and orderly. Needless to say, when his house burns down and he needs to rebuild, a woman is the last person he expects to come to his aid, but when no one else is available to help him in the short span of time he has to work with he is forced to utilize Miranda Garret's help. A battle of wills ensues that eventually leads to love. It has some funny and charming moments.

The premise sounds promising and it is mildly entertaining but predictable. Those aren't always bad qualities in a book and at the sale price its well worth the price. I really like male narrator, Michael Page, he is very well spoken and I enjoyed his voice. I was disappointed that he made the lead character sound so old and stuffy but I enjoyed all his other voices. Overall, for me, this story was ok. Its a likable story that's fairly reliable in it's plot.

Not Ms. Alexanders best work by any means but a fairly safe way to pass the time. I wouldn't waste a credit on it, at the sale price of $7.27 its a value, anything more is a waste of time and money.

Kinda Boring...

What did you like best about The Importance of Being Wicked? What did you like least?

I just coud not connect with the Hero and Heroine.

Would you ever listen to anything by Victoria Alexander again?

Yes I would

Any additional comments?

I just could not connect with story or the main characters. The book before this "What Happens At Christmas" was so much more engaging. I got lost in the story and lost track of time. I love when books do that. This book however just couldn't keep my attention.
