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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.

Not a very interesting romance. Not enough "naked" gentlemen :). I wouldn't recommend it to anyone and I probably wouldn't read any of her other books.Published 23 months ago by Sarah Frost
