In every life there is a turning point.
A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one's life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London's most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.
After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca's surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer -- the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.
But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms, and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . .

1 . Her Best Book
Posted March 10, 2010 by Sashapasha1 , SeattleApparently, whoever actually wrote the editorial review didn't really pay attention to the book; or they would have realized that Penelope is the heroine of Romancing Mister Bridgerton...not When He Was Wicked. The heroine of this book is Francesca. The editorial review did get one thing right though, this book is heavier than Julia's usual lighter fare...but that's what makes it so GOOD! To date, this is the only book ever to make me cry. The characters are solid and their grief is completely believable; their actions and feelings appropriately motivated. Well written, you wont be sorry.
2 . Enjoyable read...
