Because of a foolish mistake in her youth, she's not allowed "out" in Society until her three older sisters are wed. But while she's trying to be good, she keeps bumping elbows--and, more distressingly, lips-- with notorious rake Harry Wright. Every moment she spends with him, she risks complete ruin.
The sensual passions he stirs in her are so wrong . . . but Eliza just can't resist Mr. Wright.

The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright was an amazing book! I love how Ms. Dare structured this story, showing how they first met and jumping a couples of years later to them meeting up again in every chapter. It worked very well for this book since it's a novella.
The hero and heroine were very well liked. I love how Miss Eliza Cade is trying her best not to cause trouble for her parents and sisters, especially when she's a wild child who can't seem to stay out of trouble. But Mr. Wright is putting that to the challenge and she despise him for trying to ruin her at every turn, but he seems to know her so well she can't seem to shake him out of her mind.
Mr. Harry Wright on the other hand is a notorious rake who seems to cause trouble and bring out the worst in Miss Cade. Mr. Wright even enjoys tormenting her at every chance he gets but does he have other motives to want to irritate her?
This story was so much fun to read and its fast pace worked really well with how Ms. Dare structured their story. Although it was a short and fast read I truly felt like I have known these two lovers for quite some time. They were so energetic and animated that you can't help but love them. I did have some moments of dislike towards Mr. Harry Wright because he was always trying to cause trouble for Miss Eliza Cade. I really wanted Miss Cade to be good and stay out of trouble but I really liked her being truthful about herself not being all so proper. I also adore Mr. Wright because he understand who Miss Cade really is and not the all so proper lady that she plays to be and tries to show her that she can't lie to herself about it and to just be herself, which is why I really love him.
This really was a great novella to read and Ms. Dare just keeps getting me to love her characters even more.
