Publisher's Summary

Her breathless kiss haunts him...

Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed - until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive.

His slow, hot touch is irresistible...

Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. It's rumored that no one can tempt Bowen's hardened heart, but soon passion burns between them. Though a future together is impossible, she fears he has no intention of letting her go.

No deed is too wicked for her seduction...

If they defeat the evil that surrounds them, can Mari deny Bowen when he demands her body and soul - or will she risk everything for her fierce protector?

    "One of the very best!"

    Love it. Kept me on edge the whole time and had me tearing up on more than one occasion. Exciting story, magic, intrigue, treachery.. this story has it all and more. Robert really nails the characters and gives a fantastic vocal performance.
    If you're looking for sexy and tough then this book is the right place!

    "Soooo good!"

    I bought Wicked Deeds on a Winters Night on Audible during a sale. I had already read this book and LOVED it. Figured I loved it enough to buy it in another format. So I definitely love the story. BUT Robert Petkoff IS AMAZING!! He totally takes the story to another level with his accents and reading. Wonderful and highly recommended.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Great addition to the series :D"

    4.5-5 stars

    This was a great story. I felt so bad for Bowen at the end of the previous book, No Rest for the Wicked and was very happy that he got a book and found happiness. Mariketa was a great heroine and she made a good match for Bowen.

    Mariketa the Awaited is an extremely strong witch but she finds it almost impossible to control her magic. She has her name because she's expected to do something big but no one can tell her what that is. She lost both of her parents and because they left her behind she's always felt like she's second best and just wants someone to put her first.

    Bowen is a Lykae and has been miserable for around 180 years after his mate died. He's been particularly saddened by the fact that he felt her death was his fault. Normally a Lykae that lost his mate would find a way to die because living with the pain was too much to bare but Bowen has spent the time trying to find a way to bring his lost mate back.

    In No Rest for the Wicked, Bowen competed in a contest in order to win a key that would allow him to go back in time and save his lost mate. Mariketa also took part in the competition, even though she is only 23 years old and hasn't yet gained her immortality. When they met during one of the tasks, they found a strong attraction between them and Bowen had trouble with this because he felt it made his guilty of being unfaithful to his lost mate. He decided that Mariketa must have cast a spell on him to make him feel those feelings and since she has so little control over her magic, she couldn't say for sure that she hadn't done so subconsciously. Bowen lost the competition but decided to live long enough to get revenge on those he felt were responsible for keeping him from gaining the key and regaining his mate. During the competition, Bowen trapped Mariketa and some other Immortals in a tomb they couldn't escape. In order to avert a war among the factions of the Lore (aka paranormals), Bowen has to go release Mariketa from the tomb and he's determined to get her to lift a curse he placed on him that made him mortal as well as the one he believed she put on him to make him want her.

    When Bowen reaches the tomb, he is able to release Mariketa and the other Immortals but none of them are too pleased with him since the tomb was haunted by wrath-like Incubi and they were put through hell during the 3 weeks they were trapped there. Mariketa managed to live through it but barely. When released, she was able to take away the curse that made Bowen mortal but wasn't sure how to handle the supposed spell that Bowen was convinced was causing his attraction to her. As Bowen, Mariketa and the other Immortals trekked out of the jungles the tomb was in, Bowen realized that maybe it wasn't a spell and Mariketa is his lost mate reincarnated. Unfortunately, he isn't very smooth in his words or actions and after what she went through over the last 3 weeks due to Bowen, Mariketa isn't very willing to forgive him easily, even if she's still strongly attracted to him. Even with thinking that Mariketa is his mate resurrected, he still has some problems dealing with things, especially since he has a deep seated hatred of witches (due to some family problems caused by them in the past). It takes a lot of effort and soul searching for Bowen to realize his true feelings for Mariketa and come to terms with her completely so they can truly be together. There are other issues that come between them and truths that come out once everything comes to a head. Thankfully, Bowen and Mariketa come through things alright in the end and get their HEA together.

    I really enjoyed this story a lot. Mariketa is a great heroine. I felt for her as she tried to find her place and deal with the hurt and issues thrown at her. Bowen was a really good hero but he had a tendency to stick his foot in his mouth at times and when this hurt Mariketa I kind of wanted to kick his butt. I was very happy that they came together though and loved the way things worked out for them in the end. Overall, this was a great story and I'd recommend it (and the series). :D

    "I have become a fan of Kresley Cole!"

    I have to say, at first i was like "okay, I have something to listen to on the plane while I travel. Well! I was pleasantly surprised! The story line excellent, the twist and turns.....Outstanding! The narrative by Robert Petkoff just made the audio come to life! This in my opinion is better than a movie! I will be reading the series! Yes!!!!
