So four of London's most desirable gentlemen make a wager—the prize going to the one who remains unwed the longest.Gideon Pearsall, Viscount Warton, thinks he has a fair shot at winning. After all, he's managed to enjoy the favors of many a lady while resisting the parson's noose. Even when he's stopped dead in his tracks by the most scandalous woman in all of London—Judith, Lady Chester—he vows to have her bedded but never wedded.Beautiful, and more than a little bit naughty, Judith has always kept herself within the bounds of respectability, even while playing by her own rules. And the experience has taught her to avoid marriage. She has no desire to resist Warton's hot kisses, and his tempting touch is impossible to ignore.But soon both Judith and Gideon can't help but wonder . . . is it possible to be a little bit wicked and still follow your heart?

    For me, one of the weakest romance novels.A couple meets and for nearly 100 pages they carry on with casual, superficial bantering, for example: "Do you feel wicked frequently?" "Why do you ask?" "Curiosity. Nothing more than that." The author claims they are drawn to each other as they have never been drawn to anyone else before. I found that hard to believe based on superficial chit chat. Page 145 states "Anything they disagreed on, they disagreed on with fervor. Which was every bit as much fu [...]

İlk elli sayfa beğenmeyeceğim gene korkusu yaşasam da sonradan oldukça güzel toparladı yazar. Devamında keyifli bir okuma oldu benim için.O ilk elli sayfa, zaten yarım puan kırma nedenimdir.

    A Little Bit Wicked is book 1 in Victoria Alexander's "Last Man Standing" series. These 4 guys make a little bet about who will be the last one to get married, although it isn't REALLY a big deal--they're just 4 friends and whoever wins only gets 4 shillings and a bottle of cognac, or some such.Anyway, so this book is about Gideon Pearsall, Viscount Warton, who we find out in the prologue has been married before and is QUITE cynical about love and marriage and all that--he has ZERO intention of [...]

    A Little Bit Wicked is a quick and light read that is delightfully funny. The Last Man Standing is a four book series telling of four men who each bet they will be the last man to remain unmarried. Though I really liked Judith and Gideon’s characters, I found the plot of the book to be quite predictable. I love tension that leads to a great Happily Ever After but this book was lacking in that area. Still I thought it was a good read.Gideon Pearsall, once in love, was married but the marriage w [...]

    So here is the story. I decided to read all the "A" author's on my bookshelf. This was my summer project. Well I have book 3 and 4 of the "Last man standing" series, so I have to get 1 and 2. This book is number 1 and I got it from the library. I am waiting for #2 from . Impatiently!! Because I really enjoyed this book. Two hurt souls, guarding themselves from hurt for different reasons, do not recognize love when they feel it. Judith has been psychologically bruised and feels guilty. Gideon was [...]

    The heroine is a slightly scandalous widow, keeping discreetly inside the edge of propriety with the lovers she takes. The hero is just as discreet, and quite willing to begin the affair she proposes. But things are more intense than both of them want. They come together and it's wonderful—until one or the other of them makes a misstep. They're both definitely products of their society and yet both uniquely individual. This is just a lovely, lovely story about two people who think they're begi [...]

  • Tina

    This author has a very good writing style. I would say it wasn't necessarily one that I couldn't put down, but it was an entertaining enough read.

  • Tracy

    It could have been a little more wicked.

    Publisher harpercollins/browseinExcerpt victoriaalexander/bookAuthor victoriaalexander/books/"A Little Bit Wicked" by Victoria Alexander is both hero and heroine: "this man was very, very good, and more than a little bit wicked. There was a great deal to be said for more than a little bit wicked" p59; she is "somewhat unconventional" p255, more after they meet p97 (his smile p299). Delightful persiflage triggers smiles, giggles. Gideon, Viscount (Lord) Warton 32 eloped, annulled after one-day at [...]

    This continues with the Effington Series. After Johnathan Effington gets married, a bunch of his friends make a wager on who will be the last one to end up married. The first one out of the race is Gideon, Lord Warton. He's a casual rake, no reputation really, but not concerned with marrying, even though he's the last of his line and has no prospects just yet. He's fascinated by an independent widow and her direct approach, Judith, Lady Chester. Both of them have had some hard knocks with love a [...]

    "Gideon had known Lady Chester for years, although he did not, in truth, know her at all. She was a passing acquaintance, someone to nod a greeting to on the street or exchange idle pleasantries with at a social gathering, nothing more than that. It was not until the Twelfth Night Ball she had hosted more than a month ago that what should have been little more than a few casual words between the two of them had without warning been fraught with something more significant and completely indefinab [...]

    I finally read a historical romanced surprisingly enough, saw a lot of similarities to my own plot! Now if only I could find the success that Victoria Alexander's achievedI was hesitant to start this book - I'm not a big Shakespeare fan, mostly due to the language, and wasn't sure if I'd have the same problem with this genre. Luckily, the language wasn't that archaic, and was actually very easy to read.Strong characters (including a fairly feminist heroine), some aristocratic conniving, and enou [...]

  • Rob

    A Little Bit Wicked, is the first in a series about four gentlemen with such an aversion towards marriage that they wager as to who will be the last one standingwho will be the last to succumb to societies dictates, something each titled man knows to be his eventual duty. I was a bit unsure about this story after only a few chapters, but then became so involved I had a hard time putting it down. It turned out to be a very entertaining read, with characters that were easy to liked one in particul [...]

  • Rachel

    So far im having a very hard time getting in to this book. She just goes on and on about stuff that's just not relevant. I swear this one sentence took up 5 lines. It was like 55 words! I mean, come on!And If I read one more time about anyone wanting to be/or is being a "little bit wicked" im just gonna scream and throw the book! Im having a terrible time with this book! It normally takes me 1 day to read a book for this size and im on page 127 and it's been 4 days.I was very upset that once his [...]

    Judith, Jonathan’s old mistress (Effington bk 11) and Gideon Pearsall, Viscount Warton. Nice story…very passionate right in the beginning, their eyes had met and there was a spark but Judith’s personal demon’s were a bit lame. She was an interesting widow with a passion for exotic flowers and he was just so chivalrous, romantic, thoughtful, sentimental. Everyone’s dream. He had been previously married, for a day as the woman had used him to make someone else jealous. Judith married ver [...]

  • Jessi

    LOVED that the heroine of this book was not "pure." Judith, Lady Chester, is a widow, granted with the stereotypical bad first marriage, but, in the ten years since his death, she hasn't remained pure. She's had "adventures." Then she finds a man with whom she has explosive passion, Gideon Persall, Viscount Warton. At first their affair is all about passion. But then, Gideon falls in love. Judith can't trust him so she runs away. But then she realizes that she loves him, he is nothing like her c [...]

  • Wendy Tavenner

    Loved the book. Judith has been a widow for 10 yrs and has no desires to remarry because of how her marriage ended. Gideon knows he has to marry eventually a sweet, demure virginal bride but he doesn't want his heart involved. When his eyes meets Judith at a ball on twelfth night he knows he wants her and he wants the two of them to get a little bit wicked, ohhhh la la. Judith felt something also so when they finally meet at a musical it doesn't go accordingly like Judith's other adventures!! Th [...]

    I loved that the characters were a little bit older, and I loved that their relationship was also a mature one. I like strong, independent, unapologetically "experienced" heroines. But because the hero and heroine got together sexually so quickly the book didn't have the suspense and tension that usually hold my interest a little more. This was a pleasant book, but not compelling enough to be a 4- or 5-star one for me. However, I liked Alexander's writing and characterizations enough to make me [...]

    I can't really give a full review as this is one of the rare books that I DNF. I could never become invested or even mildly interested in the h/h reaching their HEA. There was too much dreary conversation that never revealed anything important. Of course, in all fairness, I did not read the entire book (I read about 25% of this shook that I,thankfully, borrowed from my library). Maybe it gets better, but other reviewers said similar things.DNF

  • Rebecca (everyday reader)

    Gideon doesn't want to get married again, is wary of all women's words and his conquests are nothing but fun for a time. Judith is a widow who has had a few lovers since her marriage but doesn't want to marry again either, she likes her independence. They meet, decide to have a discreet liason, and expect to have nothing but fun with each other. Their feelings sneak up on both of them, and steadily grow until a life without the other is out of the question. Great read!!

  • Joanne

    Another great read by Victoria! Historical Romance, great characters, funny in parts, sensual, and more! Viscount Warton, who has enjoyed many favors by many a lady, takes a chance with a beautiful widow, Judith, whom hes met through the years. Both make a deal, neither want to marry, a clean break at the end of affair, but will they fall in love so deeply and marry or leave each other, so as not to tie the knot? A must read!!!!!!!

  • Michelle Tucker

    This was the first book I ever read by Victoria Alexander. I've been keeping them all on the shelf until I had the whole series. (I'm strange like that, can't read it out of order, even though it's perfectly fine to read that way). Anyway, great book. This book has got me hooked. If I remember correctly, I read it in one afternoon. Both the hero and heroine are amazing. I highly suggest reading the whole series. And then start on the Effington (msp?) series. Great author, great books!
