A smooth-talking rogue and a dowdy financial genius make a perfectly wicked combination

Handsome, silver-tongued politician Lord Randall doesn't get along with his bank partner, the financially brilliant but hopelessly frumpish Isabella St. Vincent. Ever since she was his childhood nemesis, he's tried-and failed-to get the better of her. When both Randall's political career and their mutual bank interests are threatened by scandal, he has to admit he needs Isabella's help. They set off on a madcap scheme to set matters right. With her wits and his charm, what could possibly go wrong? Only a volatile mutual attraction that's catching them completely off guard...

"Wicked Little Secrets are Ives' forte, but it's the laugh-out-loud humor and slapstick comedy that will have readers crying with joy. Ives' sprightly repartee adds to the merriment, yet the poignancy that lies beneath will touch readers' hearts. Ives delivers on every level." RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick!

"Sensuous foreplay heats up the pages but never overtakes the captivating story or the charming, witty characters." -- Publishers Weekly
