"Lucien is ... a prototype for Mary Balogh's Wulfric Bedwyn ... cold, studiously polite, and unapproachable. Though Balogh refines the character and makes him her own, Lucien was there first." -- Blythe Barnhill, All About Romance
"Provocative and passionate!" -- Lisa Kleypas, NYT Bestselling Author
FIVE STARS! "Talk about fireworks! The end to the de Montforte series is one dramatic finish that is NOT to be missed!" -- M. Friedman, Romance Crush Junkies Reviews
FIVE STARS! "Wickedly delightful as the Duke meets his match in the fiery independent Eva!"
-- H. Klausner
FOUR STARS! "The grand manipulator gets his comeuppance when he meets independent American patriot Eva de la Mouriere. . . Meddling has its price, as Lucien discovers, and fans of the series will be more than satisfied to see him get just what he deserves! Harmon's delightful sense of humor, marvelous characters and true understanding of the ties that bind a family turn THE WICKED ONE into the perfect, well-crafted conclusion to her series! -- K. Robin, Romantic Times
"Harmon once again delivers non-stop action and romance ... one would have thought that such a like-minded couple would never work but talented Harmon makes it so. Recommended for anyone who loves to read romance, especially those on the steamier side." -- Veronica, A Romance Review
