The Importance of Being Wicked
by Victoria Alexander is a fun historical romance that is part of a series that centers around an English estate called Millworth Manor. This edifice is also featured in What Happens at Christmas which is a madcap romance that features Grayson, Winfield Elliott's cousin as he deals with the farcial arrangements involving actors, assumed identities and miscommunications which accelerate through a whirlwind series of misadventures which culminate in a Christmas that he will never forget.
The Importance of Being Wicked continues to follow the adventures of Winfield, the Viscount Stillwell, and intersects with the family featured in another entertaining series by this prolific author because the heroine, Miranda, is the youngest of the Hadley-Atwater siblings. I love the combination of romance and humor in these fun tales and I was delighted that Win has finally found someone to truly give his heart to after so many failed engagements. There is a nice bonus novella in the back of this novel that gives a description of those very engagements but I am not sure whether it is better to read it first or last if one has no familiarity with the family. I somehow think it is better to be read after one gets to know Winfield better, lol. Now I just have to find the time to go back and read the rest of the series! My Amazon review is at this link.
