    A steady slightly above average historical mass market debut from Hay who also writes erotic romances as Dawn Halliday This looks to be the first of at least a Trilogy and the author leaves some storylines dangling so that they can be explored further in the next two booksI have read two of the Dawn Halliday ebooks and for the most part enjoyed them but I am unsure whether I will continue reading this Regency trilogy as I have higher standards when reading historicals I didnt care for a lot of the writing decisions made in the book This was a Love Triangle where the Losing Point so to speak was arguably the most vivid character in the book which I think is a mistake It made me NOT care about the sedate boring thinly drawn other characters and I didnt even particular LIKE the Losing Point Man The My Favorite Husband situation could have been used to ratchet up the Angst but the author chose not too The focus on the Triangle itself was diffused in the second half of the book with the manipulations of the one dimensional villain I wouldnt even call this a particularly STEAMY historical since I found most of the love scenes clinical and lacking in foreplay All this done in rather stilted prose that took me several days to wallow throughOh almost forgot to mention some conventional readers might be offended by the Heroine's probably too modern open sexuality like most historicals today this IS a wallpaper one and her actions with her two husbands but as a jaded degenerate reader I didnt have a problem with it Veteran romance readers would be aware that Mary Balogh's 1994 Victorian romance Tangled pretty much had exactly the same set up as in AHOW I much preferred how Balogh gave the messy situation much angst and I even found the Balogh book HOTTER since the sex in TANGLED beautifully illustrated the growth in the principle relationship in classic Balogh fashionGrade B

    I really wanted to like this book but it just didn't work for me The middle 23 of it nearly put me to sleep; there wasn't a single character in it I could really identify with It's wallpapery neither of the heroes was fleshed out enough an obvious device to keep the reader happy with the outcome either way it went the end result for me being that I could have cared less Either one would have been fine for a lackluster romance which is all this ended up being I totally get the whole torn between two lovers thing and was intrigued with the premise but there's no romance in it for me if one of the main characters is in love with two people I know if it had been the hero who felt like that about two women it would have hit the wall Part of it too is that the heroine is so ubiuitous; her character actions felt contrived for the sole purpose of making this story work for a wider audience If you could get any other sense of her at all from her actions it would be that she's utterly weak self serving and has no will of her own Everything came across as a contrivance to get her in bed with two different men and not even at the same time which would have at least made it spicy if not necessarily my cup of tea And speaking of spice the sex scenes were decidedly lacking in it Aside from the opening bondage scene which never actually does much for me anyway the love scenes were uite dull I grade this one at a C

    There is just no way to salvage this bookI felt that all the relationships that were going around were already tainted in some wayLet me start with Sophie and TristanTristan was in love with Sophie She loved Garret Garret and Sophie married Tristan lived in hurt Then he married And all would have been strained if at this point Garret was gone Because he was But then we have Sophie and Garret's child in the mix And thenand then Nancy got pregnant and Tristan started loving Nancy All this is 2 years after Garret is gone How did he love Nancy and you know had sex with her when the woman he loved all his life was now free? And he did marry Nancy because she was 'fun' Sotarnished And he had to take 4 years to live up to the courage to tell Sophie he loves her Wait What? Did he not love NANCY? How are we back at Soph? At what point does he love her? Is it again? Is it all this time? Is it now? Shat a messThen we get Sophie and GarretI wanted to scream at the author to just make Garret go away It's not just that he messed with Sophie's head And messed with Tristan's love All in all he messed everything Also there was the fact that he was thinking of Jollie How dare he He himself knows that he does not care for her But he gets a hard on over her And random whores And he thinks about how when he was young Sophie was the only woman for him but nowoh nowNow he can fuck who ever but he still WANTS HER ARRRGjust juck Very very juck I would have loved him if he was constant Really I would have I would have even wanted him to be the one to win Sophie As it stands I come to the conclusion aboutSophieNobody was constant to this woman All these men TELL me and THE WORLD that they love her that they will love her forever and stillstillnot one of them if faithful to that love I wanted for her She went trough so much and for what? For who? I hated every doubt she had and every tear she shed And I wanted it all to go back in time so she could choose again when she was young and when all was alright The endingI didn't care I just would not pick either of them Garret was faithless now and Tristan just gave her up before Garret thinks about a mistress in Europe and Tristan banged his wife even thou he had the need to travel the world so he did not have to spend any real time with her What ever LosersThe evil twinIs there anything to say? Is there really? He made me crazy from the start He was EVERYWHERE And guess what? I could have no missed a big train going RIGHT AT ME than the plot development in which he was a villainLook at my rew of book 2 Why? Because it is fun Wait no it isn't It's an even bigger mess

Como irá ela tomar a mais importante e dolorosa decisão de toda a sua vida? Como se explica o misterioso desaparecimento do Duue de Calton durante longos anos e tendo sido arduamente procurado pela família ue tanto o estimava? Estes são alguns dos dilemas colocados durante a narrativaA autora traça um retrato fiel da sociedade Inglesa do Século XIX com o seu puritanismo por vezes exacerbado as convenções sociais levadas ao extremo e uma justiça ue compactua com esta visão deveras limitada da moralidade vigenteEm simultâneo a autora soube habilmente inserir na obra um toue de sensualidade em especial descrevendo de forma explícita porém elegante os envolvimentos sexuais ue as personagens vão tendo mas onde o sexo surge envolvido num indiscutível turbilhão emocional e por isso em nada choca o leitor este aspecto da obraNo último terço da obra e à medida ue vamos descobrindo as respostas surge também um momento de acção com a perseguição a um crimonoso desevolvida por algumas das personagens o ue a nosso ver confere à obra um carácter de originalidade e também bastante dinamismoEm suma uma leitura ue recomendamos aos amantes do romance histórico eou sensual English Version of the reviewA Hint of Wicked “Um toue de perversão” in the Portuguese Edition it´s an historical novel whose action takes place in England in the nineteenth century following the Battle of Waterloo Garrett the Duke of Calton apparently disappeared in that battle and for seven years the Duchess Sophie and the Cousin of the Duke Lorde Tristan Westcliff – used all the resources at their disposal to seek him but without success However the destiny preached a cruel departure to this aristocratic trio and the Duke of Calton returns after seven long years alive and ready to resume his life back as well as the love of his wife Sophie which however had reconstructed her life with Tristan which had taken the administration of the properties of the Duke Sophie is then divided between two loves and appears throughout the book the uestion always latent can Sophie love both men?

    The Players Sophie Duchess of Calton; Garrett Duke of Calton; Tristan aka Lord Westcliff a viscount and Garrett's heirThe Plot Sophie Tristan and Garrett grew up together becoming best friends and while Garrett did marry Sophie Tristan had been in love with her as well However Garrett leaves for war but ends up missing After 8 years Garrett is proclaimed legally dead and during that period Sophie fell in love and built a life with Tristan While engaging in a very intimate act Tristan and Sophie are interrupted when a man crashes in to their bedroom and immediately starts pummelling Tristan Lo and behold Garrett was actually alive He had been suffering from amnesia And Sophie now has to choose which one of her husbands she will want to stay married toI had a feeling I was going to be disappointed after this and that the story would follow most love triangle plot lines where it so happens that one of the character's true colors are discovered etc etc and well it'd be very easy for the heroine to make her choiceThankfully I was wrong Sophie's relationship between both men are subtly illustrated and even though she loves both and gasp desires both I think she chose the right hero for her Sorry but its not an erotic romance so she could only choose ONE although Sophie does explore that very wicked fantasy of having both There were moments where I wished Sophie wasn't so passive and I understood that it was linked with the fact that she loves both men and didn't want to hurt them Plus it was the 1800s and stayed true to that time What could a woman who loved her family really do? My respect for her grew when she became involved in her own fate and take action however impotent it was at times She was a strong heroine and it was obvious that she'd do anything for those she lovesTristan and Garrett were real to me They were complicated and both had their share of weaknesses and strengths that complemented Sophie They were essentially honorable good men in an impossible situation As the story progressed I could see that although she loved both and both loved her only one of them could really make her happy I was rooting for himI'm glad the author didn't cop out but I did wish that there was emphasis on the internal elements of the characters and their subseuent relationships The story also involved a secondary character and his evil machinations to bring Garrett humiliation and uite possibly death I felt that the subplot with the evil villain was a bit contrived It was predictable and the evil villain one dimensionalI was unclear about one thing though Garrett's motivation to participate in the war seeing as he was the Duke and Tristan was his heir I'd've expected Tristan to have gone But that's trivialAll in all an atypical romance that is sure to make some people absolutely hate the heroine was not very 'pure' but one which I was absolutely delighted over and hope there'll be like it in the future Grade B

    Author Jennifer Hay grew up in Hawaii where she surfed learned how to fly airplanes raced bicycles and developed a love for sailing She has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from UC Berkeley and a master’s degree in Education from UCLA Before she became a full time writer she held various jobs from bookselling to teaching inner city children to playing bit roles in soap operas A Hint of Wicked is her first published title Jennifer resides in Southern California with her husband and their three childrenWhen Sophie’s husband Garrett died at the battle of Waterloo it was their childhood friend Tristan who picked her up and helped the Duchess of Calton get over the tragedy Giving her body and soul to him Tristan introduced her to a passion she never knew Now married seven years later they are happy with their newly formed family and life together That is until Garrett returns and wants his land his title and his wife back Garrett scarred in both body and mind will do anything to regain all of his memories and make up for lost time Unsure which man she is even legally married to Sophie is forced to choose between the childhood love from then and the best friend she grew to love after As the two men battle for her affections Sophie begins to uestion the motives behind the man Garrett brought home with him a supposed confidant and war hero They soon discover that this is than a uestion of love it is a dangerous game of revenge and reprisal One in which someone may not survive The only fault I can find with the book was the title I understand why it was chosen or used but it didn’t seem a great fit for me I have to give a lot of credit to the author Jennifer Hay To use this plot in a regency historical romance and in a debut novel no doubt was brave uniue and intriguing So bravo Jennifer She truly understands the style and period for regency The characters were relatable and engaging You could feel their frustration and torment seeping out of the page The secondary characters moved the plot along nicely and were charming as well There weren’t any moments throughout the story where I lost interest nor were where any dead spots The setting was spectacular and you could envision it easily A Hint of Wicked is a clever provoking and steamy story from an upcoming author to keep your eye out forKelly MoranAuthor and Reviewer

    A Hint of Wicked is the story of one voracious woman and two very hunky men As is always the case when we find ourselves in this situation there is bound to be some great drama Sophie the Duchess of Calton is our heroine and although she's different from the normal rear kicking tough girls I've been reading lately she's still strong in her own right She might not go around wearing tight leather chasing down the world's evil but she has a fantastically strong personality that just bleeds off the page Hay has done an excellent job with creating a strong woman in this time period and has obviously done her research For the most part Sophie conforms to the time period's rules of propriety without coming across as meek mild and completely bland Just as the colors of the cover pop out and dance with the eyes Sophie is a wonderfully colorful character who draws the reader in becoming a real flesh and blood person rather than just black words on a grey pageAs in any good romance there's the beautiful femininity of the heroine and the roguish attraction of the hero In this case we have two heroes Holy cow ladies you better grab your loveliest fan because these guys are guaranteed to steam up the room Garrett Sophie's childhood sweetheart and husband is powerfully built and comes complete with roguish charm Nothing holds sway over his heart the way that Sophie does If possible he would literally turn the world upside down for her Enter Tristan Impeccably dressed to the nines he holds a different charm from Garrett Completely attractive his personality is as much as turn on as Garrett's body is When Garrett leaves for war and news of his possible death at the battle of Waterloo reaches Sophie and Tristan it just about breaks them both Years later when hope of Garrett's return finally dies away the two friends realize the flame of desire between them and wed beginning a happy life as husband and wife What could be better? They are Duke and Duchess wanting for nothing safe in each other's arms Right up until the moment that Garrett returns that isWhat follows is a harrowing story of love betrayal passion madness and intrigue What will Sophie's fate be when she's confronted by two husbands? Will she have to choose between them? Is she even capable of doing that? With her two men vying for her heart and fighting against one another Sophie wants no than to welcome happiness back into their lives but it seems that the entire world is set to fight against herAs you may have noticed I absolutely loved loved loved this book Did I mention that I loved it? I usually tend toward Urban Fantasy when choosing books to read but this one called out to me and I am so ecstatic that I welcomed it I have not read a book so full of passion and emotion in a long while I was literally perched on the very edge of my seat my eyes ripping through the words trying very hard to force myself not to skip down just to find out what happens next As with any Regency novel this one was full of the intrigue that seemed to flow throughout the time period Hay does a fantastic job of creating twists turns and side stories to keep us guessing throughout the bookThe characters Oh man the characters What a fantastic job Hay did with her character development We continued to watch Sophie Garrett and Tristan develop throughout the book but from the moment they stepped foot on the page they had already become real people Their complexities beauty and uirks all made them so very realistic At times it was difficult to remember that I was reading a book and not sitting watching a beautifully produced playHay did a fantastic job of bringing her story to life and I highly recommend everyone go out buy the book and read it That being said here it is Fair Warning Time There are adult themes in this book There are intimate scenes sweetly depicted within these colorful pages While not overflowing there are enough scenes that I would be amiss if I didn't let readers know In no way does it detract from the story and the scenes are written so beautifully that it really does play an integral part in what makes this book so fantastic I would give it a sensuality rating of 4I give A Hint of Wicked a giant A Seriously I would not be surprised in the slightest if people are talking about this book for a while It will hold an honored spot on my bookshelf and I imagine I'm going to have to protect the cover so that it doesn't fall off after I've read it over and over again What are you waiting for? Go read it
