The Naked King by Sally MacKenzie 5 STARS!!!
Lady Anne Marston has long since given up any thought of marriage. That is the price she pays for the mistakes of her past. But one little conversation with a handsome rogue should never have led to a sham engagement. Even if it did end in a rather shocking kiss...in broad daylight...on the front step of London's premier gossip. Now, trapped between a secret and a lie, Anne must somehow disentangle herself from this charming, maddening man before the truth comes out--or her heart gives in...
"The King Of Hearts" is his name and he is drunk as can be when the story begins. A dog finds him in the mud and it leads it's Master Lady Anne to find a gorgeous mess.
Stephen Parker-Roth is "The king of Hearts" and his heart has been stolen by a not so classic redhead. Lady Anne leads him on a merry chase to win her heart.
Right from the beginning this books sucks you in. The humor of a drunk gentleman and a lady finding him so is just too funny. The characters were well written and the scenarios wonderful. I had a hard time getting my housework done because I didn't want to put this book down. The author has just the right amount of wit and seriousness in it.
I really recommend this Historical novel, it's deliciously good!
On a side note blogger is messed up and this post should be back to normal by tomorrow.
