CAUGHT BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE . . .
Sophie, the Duchess of Calton, has finally moved on. After seven years mourning the loss of her husband, Garrett, at Waterloo, she has married his cousin and heir, Tristan. Sophie gives herself to him body and soul. . . until the day Garrett returns from the Continent, demanding his title, his lands-and his wife.
TORN BETWEEN TWO HUSBANDS . . .
Now Sophie must choose between her first love and her new love, knowing that no matter what, her choice will destroy one of the men she adores. Will it be Garrett, her childhood sweetheart, whose loss nearly destroyed her once already? Or will it be Tristan, beloved friend turned lover, who supported her through the last, dark years and introduced her to a passion she had never known? As her two husbands battle for her heart, Sophie finds herself immersed in a dangerous game-where the stakes are not only love . . . but life and death.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a great first effort in the regency romance genre. I was really impressed with the book and loved all the twists and turns. There were some definitely more modern ideas in regards to the romance area than what you normally find in this genre, but I didn't think it detracted from the book. In fact, it seemed to really add to the story. For me I thought it was an unusual plot that I'd never seen in a romance novel, but I loved it. The middle of the book was a slower read and then at the end everything seemed to happen and wrap things up. There were moments I just wanted to skip to the 'good' stuff. But all in all, this is a hot romance that's a perfect summer read. I'm going to give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Thanks to the generosity of Hachette Books, I'm giving away 5 copies of A Hint of Wicked, so make sure you leave me some comments!
