First Impressions: Wicked Becomes You by Meredith Duran

Synopsis from Goodreads:  She’s been burned not once but twice by London’s so-called gentlemen . . .Gwen Maudsley is pretty enough to be popular, and plenty wealthy, too. But what she’s best known and loved for is being so very, very nice. When a cad jilts her at the altar—again—the scandal has her outraged friends calling for blood. Only Gwen has a different plan. If nice no longer works for her, then it’s time to learn to be naughty. Happily, she knows the perfect tutor—Alexander Ramsey, her late brother’s best friend and a notorious rogue.So why won’t a confirmed scoundrel let her be as bad as she wants to be? Unbeknownst to Gwen, Alex’s aloof demeanor veils his deepest unspoken desire. He has no wish to see her change, nor to tempt himself with her presence when his own secrets make any future between them impossible. But on a wild romp from Paris to the Riviera, their friendship gives way to something hotter, darker, and altogether more dangerous. With Alex’s past and Gwen’s newly unleashed wildness on a collision course, Gwen must convince Alex that his wickedest intentions are exactly what she needs.

My First Impression: I just received this book yesterday and did not have time to read it before the tour kicked off today.  It has been a long time since I've read anything that is actually categorized as a "romance".  From the synopsis it seems like it is going to be pretty good, and it has gotten rave reviews all over the blogosphere.  It is also historical fiction which is one of my favorite genres. 

How many of us judge a book by its cover?  I know I shouldn't, but I often do.  This cover leads me to believe that this book might be a little on the racy side.  I'm looking forward to this one.

I'm with you. I know it's wrong to judge a book by it's cover but I can't help it. This one definitely looks racy.
