The Viscount's Bawdy Bargain

ALL HE WANTS IS TO WIN THE BET....
BUT WHAT IF THE PRIZE IS MORE THAN HE BARGAINED FOR?

There's nothing Nicholas Pryce, Viscount Somerton, and his friends like more than an outrageous wager. And there's nothing Wilhelmina Culpepper, daughter of an overbearing evangelist preacher, wants more than to get away from her father. When Wilhelmina becomes the unwitting victim of a jovial kidnapping caper by Nick & company, she decides to hatch a plan of her own -- one that causes her disgraced father to promptly disown her.
Nick soon realizes the trouble he's caused, and he offers to take Willie in, even make her his wife. But Willie, a true romantic, laughs off his proposal: after all, how could two people thrown together because of a prank ever really fall in love? But with nowhere else to turn, Willie volunteers to stay on as Nick's housekeeper...and soon their affection for each other becomes more than just a lark. Could it be that a little tomfoolery is just what it takes to make the perfect match?
Connie Lane's Regency-era romance is a sparkling adventure in the wise and witty ways of true love!

About the Author

Connie Lane

Connie Lane has worked as a journalist, editor, and creative writing teacher. A longtime Anglophile, she studied English literature at Queen's College, Oxford University and quickly became a devotee of Jane Austen. Her four contemporary romances -- Dirty Little Lies, Guilty Little Secrets, Romancing Riley, and Reinventing Romeo -- have received rave reviews from The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and Publishers Weekly has called her work "sassy and stylish." With The Viscount's Bawdy Bargain, her first Regency-era romantic novel, Connie combines her love of English history and culture with her passion for writing humorous, romantic fiction. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio, with her husband, their two children, and an over-sized Airedale named Hoover.
