Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Meg Peterson had come to London searching for a husband, hopefully one with considerable horticultural assets. John Parker-Roth had spent the last few years immersed at his country estate, working with plants and avoiding his matchmaking-mad mother. But when Meg finds herself in a socially ruinous situation, John unexpectedly finds himself playing hero. Now a very annoyed John has no other option but to offer to marry the delectably distracting Meg. Much to his surprise, Meg refuses his proposal. He should be pleased, but John doesn’t want to even consider the idea that Meg might marry someone else. MacKenzie’s latest Regency romp is wickedly enjoyable. --John Charles

I picked this up while out shopping one day, hoping for a few hours of light entertainment. Well, it started out good, quirky and funny, I enjoyed both characters, Meg and John. I was excited for the remainder of the book, however it quickly took a nose dive from there. The characters meet in another book, then meet back up and get "Close" in the first 50 pages, but don't come face to face again until page 200! In the mean time we are forced to read about almost 5 different subplots, multiple characters, and a lot of stuff from previous books that i had not read. By the time they get back to the main guys, I had lost interest. Both characters were whiny and rather pathetic, and the plot was flimsy at best. (The leading lady is compromised in the first 20 pages, but refuses to marry the guy, although she is still looking for a husband, it's weird) The plot is forced, the characters are flat and whiny, and I found myself skipping pages towards the end, just wanting it to finish. It did, thankfully. I wouldn't recommend this book, unless you have read the other ones in the series and enjoy her work, but I won't be buying any more of "the naked...." series ever again!

This book started out as a great, fun read. Then it just fell apart. The main characters met and then we apparently caught up with every other character from every other book the author had ever written. The main characters come back together at the very end and the "I Love You"s make no sense based on their time together. Overall, I wish I had not bought this book. However, I have read worse.

Meg Peterson has decided she's ready for marriage and she's developed a plan to make it happen. One by one, she lures possible suitors into the gardens at the many events in the Regency Ton. But when Viscount Bennington decides to push matters and Meg is rescued by the one man she really doesn't want to consider, her reputation is ruined and sexy John Parker-Roth, the man who rescued her from the Viscount but who then proceeded to utterly ruin her reputation by sitting her on his lap is linked with her ruin.

Parker-Roth is nothing if not a gentleman. He knows that any woman of society would prefer a title, and he was already abandoned once on the altar by a woman who found a better (and titled) match. But he's still flabergasted when sexy Miss Peterson turns him down. After all, she didn't seem to mind the kisses they shared and it is her reputation in tatters. It can only mean he was right all along--marriage is a necessity for a man with a title. For a mere gentleman, it's an inconvenience, a leg-shackle. As soon as he can get his mother situated, he'll head back to the country where he belongs, where he can work with his plants. Except fate, his mother, and Meg's relatives seem intent on throwing Meg and him together. While his resolution is firm, his body has other ideas.

Author Sally MacKenzie spins another sexy and laugh-out-loud funny story of manners battling with libido set in Regency England. Meg, with her love for gardening, her habit of dragging potentially eligible men into the bushes, and especially her spirit, is an enjoyable heroine--if a bit of a ditz. Parker-Roth makes a wonderful foil--stiff and reserved, Parker-Roth never knows what's hitting him and his own feelings are more of a mystery to him than just about anything else in the world.

I was really looking forward to this book, I had read the previous three and enjoyed them. Little did I know that Meg was no longer the strong, matter of fact, tomboyish character I had enjoyed, instead we get a silly, immature female who is kissing any single male with a good greenhouse in the garden.

And apparently every couple in Regency England during the season is having a quickly in the gardens of London's ton. No, I don't want to know the biggest gossip likes to do it in the bushes when over heated. Or Parker's mother likes to paint her husband in all his natural glory.

There were so many side characters, and to me there must be a problem with the story if the secondary characters are getting more story line then the two main characters.

I think I would of enjoyed this book more if the female character was not introduced from previous books. There were some very funny parts in the book, but over all I wouldn't recommend this book if you read any of the previous Sally MacKenzie books.

While this book was cleverly written and fairly humorous, it left me feeling left out.
If you like light romance I suppose this would be appealing.
Not having read the other books in the series, I was unfamiliar with several secondary characters.
It started out quite juicy but dried up until practically the very last page, and by the time I read that, I no longer cared about the characters.

This book was booooorrrrrring. After reading The Naked Marquis, I was looking forward to this one. 'Marquis' was so funny and had so much better heat in it...I was so looking forward to the story of Emma's sister Meg but found myself very sadly wanting.

Miss Margaret Peterson (Meg) is interested in only one thing--plants. That one-track interest leads Meg into more trouble than she is prepared for. She can handle the men who think she wants more than to discuss the plants in the gardens. Of course she can. That's why her sister Emma decides too late to take over chaperone duties.

John Parker-Roth has the most amazing and extensive gardens in England. And absolutely no desire to get married. It's too bad his mother doesn't feel the same and drags him off to town to look for a bride. His mother is delighted when Parks is caught in a compromising situation...twice...with Miss Peterson. Knowing his duty, Parks proposes to Meg only to have her refuse his offer. He's surprised at how that disappoints him.

It seems that everyone they know wants the two of them to marry. While Meg is trying to decide if she will go to South America to search for unusual plant specimens, Parks is still trying to convince himself that he is NOT attracted to Meg. Good luck with that.

Funny. Funny. Funny. I love The Naked Gentleman! This is the fourth in the series and is just as funny and entertaining as the others. Meg and Parks are just too much fun to read. I think I'll read it again.
