I loved the idea of this book. Misbehaving daughter of a duke gets sent to the country only to find that her imprisonment is going to be a lot worse than she originally thought. Enter in Mr. Fox, owner of the shabby orphanage she is supposed to be helping with, and you have yourself a delicious love story just waiting to burst forth!

I have to say, Miss Burke does a FANTASTIC job with describing her characters emotions as well as the reasons for their choices. The depth of the characters was amazing, and I often found my chest clenching at all of the different circumstances they found themselves in!

The only problem I have with this book was that Lady Miranda waits until the very end to finally realize she's in love with Fox, and even then it's almost like she still has this "holier than thou," attitude. Things are quickly set to rights in the epilogue, where she gushes about being with such a wonderful man, but still. As a reader it bothered me, because, to be quite honest. I was obsessed and am still obsessed with fox. He pretends to be a highwayman. Wears a mask. Works with his shirt off. Saves young children-I mean really? Come on? What more could the girl ask for!

And in the end she's still not sure about him!
HE SAVES LITTLE KIDS!

All in all, it's a wonderful book. I would totally recommend this delightful regency romance to anyone who wants an interesting and provoking read. I give it a lovely rose.

A word of warning, a few graphic sex scenes.
Hats off, Miss Burke

Lady Miranda Sinclair is on her way to the most dreadful place for her...the country. Her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Holborn, are tired of her reckless behavior and after almost compromising herself on the Dark Walk at Vauxhall, its the last straw for them. So Miranda is sent to the country to stay with her cousin with no money or frills from London. While on they way there, they are held up by a highwayman and Miranda, in her brazen way, attempts to trade a kiss for the money (that they don't have). She boldly kisses the highwayman and is left reeling from the steaminess of it but it is also one more mark against her character and her parents forbid her from even socializing or going into town while in the country. Miranda's only time out of the dreary house is when she may go to the even drearier orphanage to help out. Miranda just doesn't quite understand how the orphanage is in such disrepair. Surely if one needs to fix the roof, they do it! And the lice! Shudder. What is a gently bred young woman like herself supposed to do?

Montgomery Foxcroft, or Fox, is desperate to repair the damage his father did to his childhood home and his childhood legacy, the orphanage. He knows he can not turn out the children but he is in desperate need of funds and leads a double life as a highwayman occasionally. When the beautiful, but extremely out of place, wealthy Miranda arrives he starts to think maybe his prayers have been answered. All he simply most do is get caught compromising the young beauty and he will have plenty of wealth to save his orphanage. But as Miranda does not know that Fox is the highwayman, she finds herself attracted to Fox but all her thoughts are for the highwayman.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought the plot was very unique and fresh.

I liked watching the transformation of Miranda - from spoiled society snob to a loving, giving woman. And Fox was just perfect from the get go.

This book had everything I like in a HR; humor, drama without too much angst, excellent supporting characters and hot, steamy love scenes!

I am looking forward to reading tech rest of these series.

I got this book while it was on the Kindle free list. I have to say that most of the time, I'm disappointed with these "free" books because they are bad writers or there are grammar issues. This book opened my mind up to a very good writer! I will be buying more books from this author very soon!

I enjoyed this story very much. I thought it was well written and enjoyed the evolving transformation of the female character from one of self indulging diva to someone who learned to care about the welfare of others. I also enjoyed the fact that this book was pretty much without any "typos" as so many of them seem to be riddled with. Good work Darcy!

I really enjoyed Her Wicked Ways. Miranda is initially a flighty spoiled young woman but over the course of the story she genuinely develops and changes in a believable fashion. Fox is admirable in my view because he holds strong to who he is and what he believes (even if his actions are not always legally right they are morally right) and he doesn't change to try win the object of his affections, he brings out the best in her and waits for her to find her way to him.

I felt fully immersed when reading and I was impressed to learn this is a debut novel. I picked this up as a kindle freebie and on the strength of how I lost myself in this story and ultimately walked away feeling satisfied, last night I purchased 'His Wicked Heart' too.
