WHEN HIS KISS IS WICKED
Combine five beautiful sisters, a
heartless uncle and a handsome
nobleman. Throw in some humor
and sex, and you have the makings
of a good Regency romance. O'Riley has created some lovable characters
in the Hamilton women. The plot is
sufficiently complex and entertaining enough to keep readers engaged
and looking forward to the next
book in the series.
Colette Hamilton is struggling to make a success of the small family bookshop in order to support her family after her father's death. But her mother and uncle would prefer that she find a husband to support her so they can sell the shop and repair the family finances.
When Lord Lucien Waverley visits the shop to buy some books for his father, he and Colette are instantly attracted to each other. But their romance is hampered by the fact that Lucien doesn't believe women belong in the business world, while Colette is equally determined to prove him wrong. (ZEBRA, Apr., 328 pp., $5.99)
