About the Author

"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.Read more ›
A historical romance worthy of Candace Camp! The writing style is easy flowing and captures you from the very beginning. It's as if a dear friend is sitting there whispering the story in your ear, letting your vivid imagination carry the scenes out before you. The characters are interesting and fresh. The unconventional attitude of Lady Alexa goes a long way towards keeping you entranced as a reader. You just never know what she's going to get up to next.
For me the best part of the book was the mystery behind Lord Killingworth's life attempt. We know from nearly the beginning that someone is out to ruin him, yet we don't find out until the end who is behind it. Even though I'm an avid mystery reader, I couldn't have foreseen what was going to happen. I spent most of the book trying to figure it out and offered a big thumb up once the lout was revealed.
I only had two issues with the book. First, there were entirely too many sex scenes for me. Some readers adore these and for those readers, this is definitely worth looking into. They're written well and erotic without being too bawdy. My second issue was with the character of Lord Killingworth. I really wanted to like him, but I found his character completely overdone. He's a classic `bad boy who's really not and has morals' character. The character of Lady Alexa, as well as the supporting characters, more than makes up for the lack of imagination in his character.
The book was purchased new and arrived right away in new condition.
PS: The hero has a questionable occupation. It is very casually accepted. It kind of bothered me.
