In 1814 the impoverished half-sisters, actresses Pamela and Sophie Darby, seek a Highlander dolt who is all brawn and no brain so they can outwit him while using him to masquerade as a long lost British heir. When highwayman Connor Kincaid stops their coach, he is stunned by the audacious Pamela who instead of handing him her valuables; alas there are none except her and her sister’s respective virtue, which is why they are in this mess; she offers the brute a deal.

Sill feeling like a moron, Connor accepts and soon he and the half sisters are in London where he will pose as the long lost heir. Nothing goes right from the moment they arrive at the city. Almost immediately Pamela finds herself living in the home of Connor’s father somehow engaged to the dimwit. As they fall in love, both Pamela and Connor want their masquerade to be real.

The sequel to SOME LIKE IT WICKED is a bawdy entertaining Regency romance starring a wild Highlander who feels overwhelmed by hurricane Pamela, but cannot help wanting more of her insane decadence. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Connor wonders what happened to a simple coach robbery and never slows down as he turns to seduction and pleasuring to somewhat level the playing field with his feisty masquerading partner. Teresa Medeiros is at her best with this humorous battle of wits and passion that sub-genre readers will find wickedly wild and wantonly wonderful.
