About the Author

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases for a publicist, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. In 1990, she read a romance novel and not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA's RITA®, a HOLT Medallion, and a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.

While other English aristocrats may try to woo American heiresses into marriage in order to gain their fortunes, Falconridge chooses another route. He arranges a very private auction with some of America's wealthiest fathers. At auction's end, Falconridge finds himself engaged to Kate Rose. Just Wicked Enough left me with a dreamy smile on my face. Lorraine Heath balances sumptuous sensuality with heart melting romance. Just Wicked Enough is a novel I will surely read again and again. The hero, Michael, Marquess of Falconridge, is as refreshingly unique as this beautiful love story. I can't recall a hero recently in a historical romance that was so wonderfully strong and so much in need of love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Wicked Enough Sept. 2 2007

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Marquess of Falconridge is forced to sell the last thing he possesses of value, his title. While other English aristocrats may try to woo American heiresses into marriage in order to gain their fortunes, Falconridge chooses another route. He arranges a very private auction with some of America's wealthiest fathers. At auction's end, Falconridge finds himself engaged to Kate Rose.

While Kate's mother may wish her daughter to marry English nobility, Kate wants a marriage based on love. Falconridge knows that love is the one thing he can never give the lovely Miss Rose.

Just Wicked Enough left me with a dreamy smile on my face. Lorraine Heath balances sumptuous sensuality with heart melting romance. Just Wicked Enough is a novel I will surely read again and again.

The hero, Michael, Marquess of Falconridge, is as refreshingly unique as this beautiful love story. I can't recall a hero recently in a historical romance that was so wonderfully strong and so much in need of love. I adored him and I know you will adore Lorraine Heath's Just Wicked Enough!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just dissapointed Sept. 15 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really thought this book had possibilities but about 100 pages in I still didn't like either of the characters. Both lacked the depth I needed to empathize with their story. Michael was emasculated almost at the beginning. I could suspend my distaste and disbelief of him auctioning himself to the highest bidder. What I couldn't get past was him letting Kate control him with the fact that she had all the control over the money. Maybe it's me but a hero groveling to his wife for every penny is just a big turn off.

Kate was just not a character I could like; her expectations of the marriage were unrealistic and selfish. She wanted him to earn her love but did nothing to earn his. Both characters had secrets that I suppose for the times would have cause a bit of scandal but I just couldn't feel any depth in the secrets or the characters. As the couple began to fall in love with each other I was left wondering why. Towards the end Michael and Kate became a little more tolerable but never did they make me want to cheer them on to happiness.

When I read a book I tend to judge it based on whether the characters and plot still occupy my mind once I have finished the book. Kate and Michael will be easily and quickly forgotten.

2.0 out of 5 stars Going against the tide, but I will not read this one again July 29 2008
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Usually I enjoy Lorraine Heath's novels but this one I simply did not like. The concept was interesting, a titled noble putting himself on the marriage auction block literally and the opening chapter was very witty as hero Michael, Marquess of Flaconridge ticks off each father's assets and liabilities in his head as he waits to see who has the highest bid for his title. In fact I really liked the first chapter and the last three or four. It was everything in between which I disliked.

Part of my problem with this book was that the heroine Kate was so incredibly self centered. She was the darling daughter of really rich American parents hunting for a titled son-in-law. She was most insistent that Michael had to make her happy. She seems to forget that this was the man she chose to marry, and yes, she did have a choice, it wasn't the middle ages, she could have told her parents that she would not bow to their wishes or at least sought out another nobleman. To make sure that he appeased her, she held the purse strings, and held them tightly. It was awful the way Michael had to almost beg her for funds, and it wasn't for gambling or wenching but rather for a noble purpose albeit to her credit Kate did give him the money. She also tosses a few crumbs here and there to let him know he can voice an opinion but she is in charge period.

Michael swallows his pride again and again. Part of this is his own fault for not being open with the heroine but she isn't exactly sharing many secrets either. She protects her feelings by thwarting Michael. She will not sleep with him as he must love her first but she is not required to love him back. She realizes her incredible selfishness very late in the novel. She also has a past which rears its ugly head in the form of a former love.

As stated earlier, the ending is quite good and saves this from being a one star novel. Finally, finally, Kate wises up to her own selfish nature and how she put this man through the ringer but for me Kate's epiphany came way too late.

2.0 out of 5 stars shallow spoiled brat April 28 2009
By Constantreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While the plot of the book was interesting enough ( marquess auctions himself to highest bidder for marriage)the character of Kate, the heroine, was awful. She was a shallow, spoiled brat, as well as immature, not overly bright or particularly interesting.

She has left a former husband she claimed to adore because her parents said he was a fortune hunter and anulled the marriage. She marries the marquess because she also wants to have a prominent place in society, but says she wants the love she had with her other lover -so she refuses to sleep with her new husband until he proves he loves her. She does nothing to deserve to be loved, or makes any attempt to endear herself to her new husband. Instead, she holds her family fortune over his head, and throws his reasons for marrying her in his face constantly. Frankly, her own reasons aren't any more praiseworthy - in fact they're less, as at least the marquess has dependants to take care of and is trying to make the best of the situation. Not one of Heath's best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Concept Oct. 10 2007
By Margaret - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first time I read this book, I wasn't that crazy about it. The other day, I picked it up for a re-read and I was in between new books. And I liked it! It's still not my favorite Lorraine Heath, but it's staying on my keeper shelf. I'm glad I didn't donate it to the library before I gave it a 2nd chance.

I guess this just shows that how you feel about a book/movie depends a lot on what's going on in your own life at that particular time.

I liked the concept of Michael auctioning himself off to the highest bidder. And the bit about his mother was sweet. Kate took a bit of warming up to, but I liked her in the end.
