Damn it! I wish women would quit being drawn to this type of jackass. Got so irritated by the sick narcissist cat playing with his poor empathic mouse...the excellent mystery got lost. The saints and sinners, whore madonna theme is boring.
very detailed sexuality and fascinating woman's point of view. I recommend it very much. lovely.
I read the reviews before buying and noted that there were some bad ones. I truly enjoyed this book and am almost finished with the second book. So far I am enjoying this series and plan on finishing it. This book is full of whit, romance and a little mystery/suspense. I think that the story was well written and the characters make you want to learn so much more about each one in their own stories.
I'm new to this author but I found I really enjoyed the story. It's not as light as some historic romances in fact it's a bit dark. Bad part of town, gruesome murder. The stories, I like how they were presented and blended with the different happenings, kept me captivated. The love scenes are definitely steamy, earbuds required.
While I liked the narrator overall I feel her tone did add a bit to the feeling of dark.
Somewhere near the middle.
The narrator in my opinion is bad. She reads the book like she is talking to someone who would have a hard time understanding if she spoke to quickly.
The book was good, I had no problem with the british accent, the narrator read the book way to slow.
Read from June 16 to July 19, 2012
Who needs Fifty Shades of Grey when there's Wicked Intentions? And unlike this new flash-in-the-pan trend, WI is actually a romance novel in which the physical relationship (which involves light B but no DSM) between the hero and heroine is integral to their character growth and the growth of their relationship. A good story in and of itself, and a good setup for a series.
This is the first book in her Maiden Lane series. I own them all and have listened to all of them at least twice. What an amazing writer. Funny, poignant, wicked, tender, unbelievably clever, she knows how to do it all.
Just order it , I will warn you however that you will become an Elizabeth Hoyt addict. Ahhh....such a wonderful indulgence
My first Elizabeth Hoyt novel and definitely not my last! Very engrossing story with relatable and richly drawn characters. Just the right amount of complexity, sex and angst - I love a good splash of angst! The storyline enjoyability is heightened by Ashford MacNab's performance - she is splendid! Her voice is warm and rich and her characters are distinguishable and vibrant. There's no overacting here. Just a great combination of story, characters and performance.
