For Jane Sparks being kissed in the library, where she works, is the most exciting this to happen to her in a while. She never realised it would lead her on a completely mad bend in her life, but one kiss from a sexy stranger mixed with her best friend getting on to her Facebook page apparently created a fake engagement. One that her sexy stranger, who turns out to be bad boy billionaire Duke Austen, seems happy to go along with. He needs someone to help clean up his bad boy image and Jane “Sweater Set” Sparks seems like just the girl to do the job.

I am beginning to really detest serials, they just leave you smack bang in the middle of the action and you have to wait what seems like an age to see what happens next. I swear it is a modern type of torture and should be stopped at all costs. I really enjoyed this story, it was funny and a little bit sexy, with a great heroine and a hero just bad enough to swoon over, but not bad enough to question the heroine’s intelligence.

As well as enjoying the story itself, I loved Maya Rodale’s idea of creating a contemporary story to match her historical one. This is book #1.5 in her Bad Boys & Wallflowers series, and if you have read the first book in that series, The Wicked Wallflower, you will not only recognise the familiar story line, but also the book that Jane Sparks is writing.

I really enjoyed this serial and can’t wait till the next part is out. In fact I liked this more than The Wicked Wallflower the first book in the series, so even if you haven’t read that it is worth giving The Bad Boy Billionaire’s Wicked Arrangement a try, it is guaranteed to leave you smiling and frowning (damn you serials!!) all at once.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I bought and read before I realized it was a serial and there was a previous book. I really liked it and want to know what happens now.
