A MAN CONTROLLED BY HIS DESIRES . . .
Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London's most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she's spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . .
A WOMAN HAUNTED BY HER PAST . . .
Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance's help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London's high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control-one that may well destroy them both.
A BARGAIN NEITHER COULD REFUSE
|Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt|
My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
*Insert title here* is quite different from the typical historical romance, without a TSTL heroine nor a reformed rake for a hero. Best of all, the writing is exceptionally engaging and descriptive without seeming overdone or tedious at all.
I thought Wicked Intentions would finally give me the chance to start my review with that opening. Disappointingly, Wicked Intentions is dreadfully boring, unoriginal, predictable, and entirely forgettable. And don't get me started on the names. Seriously. I'll never stop.
I'll still continue with the series, however. I'm fairly interested in the rest of the siblings, and Winter in particular. I'll save these books for a perfect spring day, when I'm feeling more forgiving and less crabby.
