Some like it dangerous . . .
Highland beauty Catriona Kincaid cares nothing for propriety—or even her own safety—when she storms the grounds of Newgate Prison. Determined to return to Scotland and restore her clan's honor, she seeks the help of Sir Simon Wescott, a disgraced nobleman and notorious rogue. She is prepared to offer him both wealth and freedom, but she never dreams the wicked rake will be bold enough to demand a far more sensual prize.
Some like it seductive . . .
Simon is shocked to discover the tomboy he met long ago has blossomed into a headstrong temptress. Although he's sworn off his dreams of becoming a hero, he can't resist playing knight errant to Catriona's damsel in distress. Both adventure and peril await them at her Highland home, where they will risk their lives to vanquish her enemies . . . and risk their hearts to discover a passion beyond their wildest dreams.
In Some Like It Wicked, we set off with two people that met under not the best set of circumstances, But Catriona was captivated by Sir Simon Westcott, in her mind he was her hero….honorable and loyal despite having becoming a man that has fallen in debt and put in prison where not even his own father will set him free. But Catriona needs his help. So she offers him a deal, half of her dowry if they marry if he escorts her to Scotland to find her clan. But what Catriona finds is not what she expects, not even finding a man to love who could never love her in return.
What was most fun about this story was seeing these two go on the road together and find love along the way. We see changes in character growth and what development we find here. Catriona was a delightful character, I love the way she looks at the world. She was quite charming and spirited and a bit of a dreamer but she has some fighting spirit and I love the way she will do anything to bring her clan back together and find her brother. The romance between these two is shaky at times but solid in other ways. It begins with a marriage of convenience with plans for future annulment. But they both discover a passion that they have with each other. The hero never ceased to surprise me in those unique moments. At first he just seems like your typical war veteran gone bad with gambling and drink but he has some hidden depths I fell in love with. But the ending we see some fantastic and sweet romantic moments between these two but it leaves us with a cliffhanger dealing with the brother so I had to get the second book right AWAY!!
