More About the Author

I started creating books at the age of five, or so my mother tells me. And she has the proof--a neatly penciled story, the pages lavishly illustrated with full color crayon drawings of horses and bound with staples--to back up her claim. I have since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England, a time and place that has captured my imagination ever since I opened the covers of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

I have a BA and an MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University and now work as the Creative Director of a lifestyle sporting magazine, a job which lets me combine my love of the printed word with my love of art. I'm very fortunate in that my work allows me to travel to interesting destinations around the world--however, my favorite spot is London, where the funky antique markets and used book stores offer a wealth of inspiration for my stories.

It took me over four days to finish this book - and that, in and of itself, speaks volumes.
"Too Wicked to Wed" is the overly formulaic, clichéd, disengaging, and at times unrealistic, even for the fiction genre, love story of Lady Alexa Hendrie and Connor Linsley, the Earl of Killingworth, aka the Wolfhoud.

Unnecessary twists, intended to drive the story only end up prolonging the plot of this novel. The two protagonists meet in the Wolf's Lair, Killingworth's brothel, where they immediately engage in a rather disconnected make out session. Later, through rather rash and improbable actions on the heroine's behalf, they find themselves as co-owners of said brothel, which leads to the predictable antagonism that transforms into desire and dangerous life-threatening incidents intended to allow the protagonists to spend time together and force the confessions of love.

I would have probably given this novel 2 ½ stars, but whoever proofread the work did a rather poor job, so I am deducting that extra ½. There are numerous errors that distract the reader: missing prepositions - "The irony of her position was not lost her;" absent definite and/or indefinite articles - "from slope of her shoulders [...];" typos, some of which involve repetition of words - "Having made it made it this far in life [...];" - comma splices; omission of verbs - "[...] the expense of transporting stone could kept to a minimum;" and a score of other grammatical mistakes I will not delve into.

I liked the story, but could have done without so many canine metaphors...ok, so the hero and his friends have nicknames - I get it. No need to keep trying to emphasize the nickname or convince the reader the reasons for it. Because of this "dogged" attempt by the author, some of the dialogue seemed forced, forced to include some canine reference. I would have rated the book higher, otherwise.

Lady Alexa Hendrie is a country-bred woman that is destined she believes for spinsterhood. She may flirt with the idea of a season in London but the reality of trying to be a tame, controlled woman of society is not going to happen. Connor Linsley, the Earl of Killingworth affectionately known to his Hellhound friends as the Irish Wolfhound. He runs a brothel and gaming hall and is a menace to proper society. Connor wants to run his business, not have Alexa interfering with it but a determined woman can always overrun a snarly man.

Alexa and Connor are connected through her brother but only remotely but enough to give Connor a headache over her requests. He has problems of his own with a mysterious someone trying to ruin his business at best and kill him as a bonus. But a tender kiss and sweet caress is going to be the undoing of Connor too great a temptation for Alexa. Connor has to keep his head in the game to avoid losing everything he cares about but when he starts to care about Alexa the stakes may be too high even for a man who loves to take a chance.

A near fatal accident leads to time secluded for Alexa and Connor where they discover the strength they have together is more powerful than they could have ever imagined. It is more than facts, figures, or business forecasting that has Alexa it is about taking chances and rolling with the circumstances. But the lives of many are being threatened and the mysterious shadow lurking in the background trying to eliminate Connor and all he cares about is drawing closer. Connor may have enemies but not enough to create this situation so solving the problem quickly will put everything to right even his relationship with Alexa.

Cara Elliott ended her Circle of Sin series in February 2011 with TO TEMPT A RAKE. Thank goodness we don't have to wait a full year to enjoy a new Cara Elliott novel as she returns with the boys, er, Lords of Midnight. And Ms. Elliott doesn't just ease us into a new series, she takes us full throttle in the opening scene of TOO WICKED TO WED. Upon meeting each other for the first time, in a brothel no less, Lady Alexa and Lord Linsley sizzle like an Angus cut on an open grill. Indeed, Linsley may be a rake to the nth degree, but he resists ruining the very tempting Alexa. Their instant attraction is not a fleeting moment. Lady Destiny ensures their paths cross several times, at critical junction, so they can find the passion that lies within.

Elliott delivers another tasty story of romance, friendship, and intrigue during the Regency period. TOO WICKED TO WED offers the glamour, gaiety, and chivalry that draw Regency fans to the time period. Elliott also gives us a heroine that we can sink our teeth into like that Angus steak - confident, adventurous, and determined. The hero - Lord Linsley - may be called the Wolfhound for his wicked ways. Yet he demonstrates the attributes of the Irish wolfhounds that were coveted by the English aristocracy: gracefully built, movements easy, head carried high; and effective in protecting what is his. Is he too wicked to wed? Not for the country miss who steals his heart!

TOO WICKED TO WED is a satisfying read for Regency fans. It is also an addictive romp in the world of The Lords of Midnight. I look forward to read what is to come from the Lords of Midnight series.
