Synopsis

Andrew Carlton is a seasoned rake trapped into an untenable position, and sparks fly when he is forced to marry Christa Hatton, the very prim daughter of a duke. Who plotted so they would be found together is a mystery, but someone has it in for one of them. However, to his dismay, Andrew finds his bride is not exactly the shy debutante he expected but is instead stubborn, moody, and has a "shell." Used to women falling into his arms, Andrew isn't sure exactly how to deal with his innocent, headstrong bride. Even if the arrangement isn't of her choice, Christa finds that being pressured into marriage with a man of Carlton's reputation has some benefits. For one thing, he certainly knows what to do in the bedroom. The question is will he make a good husband, and more than that, why were they lured into a compromising situation in the first place?

REVIEWS for Compromising Situations [Reformed Rakes 2]

5 Angels: F.A.R. Recommended Read: "I truly enjoyed getting to know Andrew. He is the kind of to-die-for bad boy who has set hearts thumping forever: sinfully handsome, sinfully good in bed...and yet with that redeemable heart women are always hoping to find lurking just below the surface! Of course it takes just the right woman to bring out such a trait. Ms. Wildes allows the reader the vicarious thrill of watching Christa achieve that status in a believable manner. In addition, she was able to breathe life into several secondary characters to a rather extraordinary degree, considering the short length of this story. Apparently, this is the second of two in The Reformed Rakes series by this author, and I am willing to bet the first, entitled The Letter, is just as charming. I recommend this to anyone looking for a quick, yet satisfying romp between the sheets set in the Regency era." -Lynn, Fallen Angel Reviews

5 Stars: "Compromising Situations has everything, a plot filled with intrigue and romance, a sexy rakehell hero, a beautiful innocent who eagerly grasps all the lessons in pleasure her new husband is delighted to teach and a crafty villain determined to ruin it all for some unfathomable reason secreted in dim scandal from the past. Andrew's twin Adam, the sixth Earl of Wenton and his insatiable countess, Helena, are engaging secondary characters who add to the story in their support of the newlyweds and also their own happily sensual relationship. The sex scenes are especially well written in a range of sensuality from making me blush to waking my own hero. You can't go wrong with a book from Emma Wildes' Reformed Rakes series; they are a guaranteed satisfying read." -Karen Haas, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

4.5 Kisses: "Emma Wildes delivers an enjoyable mystery with likeable main characters and a plot that is well-developed despite the short length of the book. I like that they don't fight against being thrown together, despite the fact that it wasn't their idea. Even though they don't know each other very well, they seem to recognize what a good thing they've found in each other. Their chemistry clicks, drawing the reader into a tale of delectable passion and love. Once again, I'm looking forward to the next part of this wonderful series." -Lindy, Two Lips Reviews
