    Nicholas Anthony's spirit has been corrupted. A moment of spite four hundred years in the past turned him into an immortal monster. Now he is obsessed by an unnatural hunger, feasting on the good in others while seeking the good in himself. But unlike the vampire of myth, it's not the taste of blood that draws him, but the very essence of his victims. The soul.

    I don't think this book got a fair rating by the last critic. I read it and wanted to listen to it again while at the gym, which I do a lot with books I like. This is not really a hard core horror book. It isn't a sweetie-pie romance either. But at heart it is a romance. It is the painful transformation of an essentially selfish man, who has been changed into a monster by gypsy revenge. Wicklund is not easy on him, which could turn off some readers. In fact, I definitely disliked him at first. The thing is, she manages to hook you into the characters slowly until you know he is either doomed to become the most self-loathing creature who has ever faced immortality or the heroine will in fact save him at the possible expense of her own soul/life. And she makes you care. You will not know until the end. Tragedy or redemption, I can't say or you will all want my throat--me too, I hate spoilers. All I can say is this is a gripping book for anyone who I enjoys a good vampire with their romance.

    When 17-year-old Lady Jillian Fitzgerald sneaks out to spy on a duel, she believes she is merely guilty of an indiscretion. But when the duel takes a deadly turn and Jillian becomes an unwilling passenger in the fleeing carriage of the infamous "Lord Wicked", she knows what began as a lark has become a disaster. One night of bad judgment and her life is changed forever.

    What made the experience of listening to In the Garden of Disgrace the most enjoyable?

    I have read several of Wicklund's books, and I love her cast of characters, whether major or supporting.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the duel scene. She is very descriptive and makes her scenes come to life.


    Any additional comments?

    When I am in a rotten mood, I enjoy reading Wicklund's books to pick up my spirits. Now I can listen while doing other chores! Great. Love having her books available in audio.
