Not Wicked Enough - Carolyn Jewel Mixed feelings, some excellent writing, some good characters, just didn't jell in the end.

Male lead: Duke of Mountjoy, the unexpected Duke, gained his position after a series of deaths, has no intention of marrying, rough around the edges.
Female lead: Lily Wellstone, dedicated spinster, independent woman, beautiful and desirable.
Other characters: Eugenis, Mountjoy's sister, probably appearing in the next book in series, bereft after her husband's death.

Lily polishes the duke's appearance and manners, gaining his trust. Mountjoy convinces Lily that married life would suit both of them.
