Amanda, our heroine, is thousands of miles from home and penniless, when she is jilted by "Viscount Ripton". She rushes to his hotel, convinced that something terrible must have happened to him, only to be confronted by the "real" Viscount Ripton. He is hunting for the man who has been impersonating him across the continent, and when he meets Amanda, he is convinced that this innocent looking girl is nothing more than an adventuress at best, and an accomplice at worst. He immediately takes her into his custody *cough* abducts her *cough*, setting sail after the faux Viscount. The rest of this cute adventure story takes place mostly on board, as Ripton slowly comes to realize that he has indeed abducted an innocent girl. Amanda, meanwhile, starts to trust and even respect Ripton. There is, of course, a pretty big bump in the road to happiness for Ripton and Amanda, but eventually love conquers all. The ending felt a little rushed, but that isn't unusual for a novella.
Others have noted it: this is NOT a regency and the blurb and cover are totally off base.
As I have opinions about historical romance that I feel compelled to share, I must say that I always feel the road trip is the romance plot which requires the most violent willing suspension of disbelief. The couple is thrown together intimately and in defiance of even more societal conventions than usual. Your Wicked Heart also follows that pattern, but I didn’t mind. A romp was not what I expected from Meredith Duran, or for just 99 cents, but a lighthearted adventure is what the story provides. Amanda is plucky and determined. Ripton is dutiful and single-minded. Worn down by Ripton’s intensity and sense of duty, Amanda’s natural charm has the same effect on Ripton. Because Duran’s greatest strength is character development, the more serious personal elements are what help balance the novella’s playful aspects. Your Wicked Heart is a fun quick read with a small twist at the end that makes everything feel a little more gravitas-y.
