Book Description

                                        Read and Hear what happens
                    when revenge turns into seduction and seduction becomes...

No more Miss Nice Girl -

Noah Drake walked out of her life without a word - just divorce papers.

Marlayna O'Brian wanted answers and he was the only man who could provide them.

But there he was engaged to another woman - and she was invited to the party!

She gave him fair warning: "Seduction is the plan for today. Keep on your toes, Mr. Drake. You never know when or where I'm going to strike!

Marlayna found it so very easy to be deliciously bad! Especially when an American castle provided so many erotic nooks and crannies.

Inside is one very hot, explicit romantic comedy!

The Castle is real!!!  check out Singer Castle on Dark Island!


"Chase blends some wonderfully comic scenes with several more serious issues. Chase's writing is so distinctive and her characters and dialogue so sharp, that she carries it off."

Chicago Sun-Times

"Ms. Chase remains well-nigh irresistible in any form!"

Romantic Times Magazine


Narrator Jill Arehart creates a sensual ear bud melting story that will delight please check it out on audible/iTunes/Amazon link to eBook!

5.0 out of 5 stars AudioBook Review April 14, 2013
Format:Audible Audio Edition
Anyone who has followed this blog understands that I am a fan of Elaine Raco Chase's writing - particularly her dialogue: there are few who write dialogue as well, that feels as natural and realistic. In Lady Be Bad she continues to produce dialogue that is both real and in some places, blindingly poignant.

In this story, Chase has mixed up the expectations for the reader: taking a story that starts with the heartbreak of love lost and focuses on Marlayna as she regroups and redirects her life, finding success although no answers in the life she built for herself after running from Atlanta after an unexpected divorce. Putting her best face forward, literally and figuratively, her modelling contract for a leading cosmetics company has her living comfortably if not entirely happily.

Invited to a weekend party to celebrate the cosmetic company owner's daughter's engagement was a `must appear' for Marlayna: even though the proposed son in law was her ex-husband, Noah.
Now Noah was easy to dislike. Granted his reasoning for leaving Marlayna and not providing an answer was misguided selfishness, but his utter dishonesty towards his new, young and very immature fiancé was horrible. And even though his feelings for Marlayna are wholly apparent in word and description, any man who would remain silent as his fiancé explains that his "liking me is enough, I can live with that, I know you don't love me", is despicable.

Both Noah and Marlayna are beautifully portrayed, with decided development and growth for both as they face their past, their feelings and they hope for a future. The sexual tension and chemistry is apparent, even after all the years apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real surprise June 18, 2014
By Joy2320
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit that I hated Noah for the first part of the book. What he did.......was beyond rotten and I cried. Then I caught a "clue" that later turned into fact. I now love Noah and I loved him with Marlayna. Funny, sexy read and now I am spending all my money on more books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical Romance July 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A lot of readers complain that romance novels are all alike--that they follow a formula. Lady Be Bad is not a formula book so it should appeal to readers who want a different kind of romance.

Yes, it's got the typical Elaine Raco Chase heroine. Marlayna is beautiful, smart, and has a heart of gold. She knows what she wants, and what she wants is the one man she can't have. Or can she?

Noah Drake is definitely not your usual romance novel hero. No rose-colored glasses obscure his outlook on life, and his physical imperfections are plainly visible for readers to see. He's not perfect, and that's kind of refreshing. He's a man who survived tragedy.

Does that mean he isn't sexy and virile? Heck, no! He's hot for Marlayna, and he's not shy about showing it and acting on it.

Lady Be Bad is a heartwarming story with enough sensuality to please romance readers who like it spicy. With a man and a woman meant for each other, funny well-drawn secondary characters, and evocatively described settings, Ms. Chase's fans will be delighted that she has brought another of her bestselling print novels to ebooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this! February 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book, but I didn't realize I was going to need tissues. There were some fun, lighthearted, and steamy moments, but there were also some more serious issues. The characters had a lot to overcome. My heart was breaking. I do love a good second chance story, though. There are some great secondary characters that added to the story as well. And the narrator for the audio was fantastic.
*I received a copy for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Cover! December 6, 2011
By CRich
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
23-year-old Marlayna O'Brian has the perfect life, married to Noah Drake, the perfect man. All that changes in an instant. A terrible accident sends Noah to the hospital and, from that moment on, nothing in Marlayna's world will ever be the same. She is denied access to her injured husband without explanation, unable to see or speak to him, and it will be six long years before she finally gets some answers.

Such a fantastic, sexy story! What I like most about Elaine Raco Chase's books is that they are not cookie-cutter. She has a unique voice that breathes fresh life into a genre that can sometimes be stale. There's emotion and humor and characters you care about. And the research always adds a sense of reality, placing her characters in a world you can believe in. I've read several of her books now, and I can honestly say each is a new adventure to look forward to.
