IN LOVE WITH A WICKED MAN
Genre: Historical Romance, England
Relying on a genre-standard plot twist, amnesia, Carlyle weaves a lovely story of two lost souls who find a surprising chance at love and salvation. Carlyle’s appealing characters lift the story up to her usual standards, turning the traditional and simple story into a moving reading experience.
From childhood, ruthless gambling salon owner Edward Quartermaine has survived by using his mathematical ability. Edward is on his way to a country house he acquired as payment for a debt when a riding accident leaves him with amnesia. Kate, Lady d’Allenay, is stunned when she causes a rider to suffer a fall. Always in charge and devoted to Bellecombe Castle, Kate is never careless. She brings the stranger home, not knowing the risk he poses to her home and her heart.
Edward may have lost his memory, but not his ability to admire a beautiful woman. Kate tempts him to kiss away her loneliness and take all the love she has to offer. Kate believes she will never wed, and so this handsome stranger is her only chance to experience passion. However, when a former and brutal suitor returns, awakening Edward’s memory, Kate fears that their love has unleashed a terrible danger. (AVON, Oct., 384 pp., $7.99)
