Wickeds Scandal The Wickeds #1For the simpering women of the ton and is determined to avoid any entanglements until a chance meeting with the delectable Miss Dunforth changes his mind. Uhmm This book was okayInitially I loved it I'm such a sucker for historical romances that the first few chapters reeled me in right away The characters were awesome; you have the bookish and intelligent Alexandra Dunforth and the exotic and rakish Sutton Satan ReynoldsEven the initial plot idea was great; Alexandra was being forced into a marriage by her odious uncle or he would sell her childhood farm and displacing all it residents on the street Meanwhile Sutton dealt with a horrid stepmother and her twisted cousin in a family riddled with dark secretsSee Amazing pretense and setup rightUnfortunately it didn't really progress and resolve the way I imagined it would The end of the book had so many loose ends and seemed so rushed I nearly pulled my hair out in disbelief view spoiler Seriously the final chapter ends with the hero being stabbed and the villain shot and it suddenly jumps to the epilogue Sorry but that was kind of a really really bad transition Also the author never explains how Sutton managed to escape his being tied to a stone and thrown into the harbor by assassins and was a little too vague when hinting at what happened to Elizabeth hide spoiler

F her beloved family estate over her head Satan Reynolds a wealthy Maruess is possessed of angelic beauty and a scandalous dragon tattoo He doesn't care. There was so much I loved about this book The hero was a typical man of the Regency period Cocky a man who loved women even as he doesn't have much respect for them Until he meets the heroine She wasn't the typical woman of society and she intrigued him I have to admit I got a bit irritated with him a couple of times because he was a strong man as a result of living outside of society but he didn't hold his own with his evil step mother I had expected from him They're both manipulated by some really evil peopleHis interaction with the heroine is steamy I love that they are so different but both can relate to their struggles to fit into a society neither of them want Their names for each other the peacock and the badger was a fun way to show their impressions of each other names that became pet names They were well matched
