[ARC Review] - Too Wicked To Wed
Author: Cara Elliott
Series: Lords of Midnight
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2011
I received this book for review from Grand Central Publishing.
Summary: Outspoken and independent, Lady Alexa Hendrie is happiest in the quiet of the country, where she is free to run her family’s estate as she chooses. But when her brother’s recklessness forces her to London, a chance encounter with the ton’s most wicked rake—and his searing kiss—awaken a longing for adventure.
A man of many secrets, Connor Linsley, the Earl of Killingworth, uses his rakehell reputation to hide the fact that poverty has forced him to work for a living. As the owner of a gambling den and brothel, Connor has no time for glittering ballrooms or innocent young ladies. But after a daring masquerade by Alexa leads to her winning half of his business, he is forced to take a risky gamble . . .
Will the cards fall in their favor?
Alexa and Connor begin to play a dangerous game of intrigue, deception, and desire. Consumed by a passion beyond their wildest imaginings, they must risk all they hold dear for a chance at love. But can they escape the danger that pursues them? Or will their own fiery attraction be their ultimate undoing?
Thoughts: Rake Connor Linsley is the last person Lady Alexa Hendrie should be alone with. But she keeps finding herself in that exact situation - the temptation is just too much to resist. One burning kiss and they are lost for each other, although it takes them a while to admit it. A yummy and all around fun read! Cara Elliott is a new author to me - but I was pleasantly surprise with this story. Too Wicked To Wed is a page turner. Delicious and sexy. Connor Linsley is a bad boy - a saucy lead, that I loved. He was one of the reasons I was eager to read this title. I wasn't disappointed and would recommend this one to historical fans.
Score: 4 Stars
