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.
great narration. great opening storyline for a series. great sex. read others in the series first, but like this as one of the best.
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.
Mysterious, sexy and delicious!
Yes. She fits this series amazingly. I could not have picked a more perfect narrator for the delivery of such a rich story.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole story from the get go. It draws you in with its hidden mysteries.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Did not read the print version...but the audio version is OUTSTANDING!!!!
Obviously the rest of the Maiden Lane series, BUT also The Raven Prince and The Serpent Prince.
I enjoyed the scene when Lord Caire was in Temperance's room at the Foundling Home....but then again I enjoyed ALL the love scenes ;-)
YES YES YES.....I really LOVED this book and got no sleep! I was captured from the start and I swear I couldn't control my emotions ..... this book is FANTASTIC!!!
I wasn't expecting to be caught up in anything other than a fluff romance....MAN WAS I WRONG!!!! This is NOT FLUFF!!! Wicked Intentions is NOT for the faint of heart. It is explicit but it makes this story more real in my point of view. This book is just the beginning of a series that captivates & amazes. It is more than a romance, it is a drama and mystery as well.
I would read this book again and again and again. It is that good!!!
