Summary (from Amazon):
Mari Powel's fiery Welsh temper is up. Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly, is back in town after six years romping around India making his fortune. Mari blames him for her social downfall and has spent all this time clawing her way back into the ton's good graces. How dare he show up on his first day back and publicly embroil her in a bet involving long-awaited apologies, illicit kisses, and Lady Illston's unruly parakeet? Mari is outraged, and is going to show him-and everyone else-what she's made of. Little does she know, the unrepentant Lord Whitly has been dreaming of her all this time. Now he'll do anything to win the wager-along with Mari's heart.
Mari has never forgiven Lord Whitley for what he said about her six years ago, something that forever changed her reputation. Now he's back from India and making her life even more complicated after he forces her into a wager. The wager brings them closer, even though Mari wants to be as far away as possible from Lord Whitley, while Lord Whitley's exactly where he wants to be.
This is probably one of the most unbelievable historical romance novels that I've ever read, and not in a good way. The fact that Mari and Lord Whitly make a wager about teaching a bird new words and if Mari loses she must kiss Lord Whitly, which everyone says won't ruin her reputation, is not historically accurate and a little silly. But while it wasn't the most believable or one of my favorite novels, it definitely was unique and interesting.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone looking for an accurate historical romance, but if you're looking for a fun and fast read, this is a good pick.
