really the one who made the covers for this series really understand what need to be put in romance cover page.

In the final installment of Merry Widows series, Grace Marlow the righteous widow is paired with Viscount Rochdale the debauched rake.

The reformed rake is obviously is not something new in romance world, and the creme de la creme of the said theme is Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas.

But having said that, Lady be Bad actually a decent story.

We know that Grace is the repressed widow of the late bishop who married her in his old age. Grace grow from a naive but sensual young woman into a mature and quite dull widow.
While Viscount Rochdale a rake with a dark past (don't they all) made a wager involving a prime horse and the saintly widow. So the game of seduction begins...

My surprise was that for a pious and proper widow, grace is actually easy to seduce. Maybe because of that repressed passion finally unleashed?
While Rochdale supposedly fall for Grace because of her goodness and purity. though i can't really seem to recall when Rochdale start falling for Grace.

So it's not a bad story overall, but not really stand out from the shelf as well.
