      I've given this a B+ for both content and narration at AAR, so let's call it 4.5 starsKate Wentworth is a rather unusual Lady in that she is a rare thing – a peeress in her own right. She is the Baroness d’Allenay, one of the few titles in England that can pass to the female line if there are no sons to inherit.Upon the tragic death of her brother, she assumed the title and the responsibilities of the land-rich, but cash-poor Bellecombe estate. Following a short-lived engagement to an old fa [...]

      This is one of those book where I liked the secondary characters a lot better than the main characters.I haven't read the first 8 books in this series so I don't have any context on Ned Quatermaine and how supposedly wicked he was. Because that never came through in this book. Edward was as a perfect gentleman, polite, well educated, honorable and always concerned about others. His penchant for self-flagellation on what a bad man he was and how he didn't deserve the heroine became tiresome VERY [...]

      3.5 - 4 stars. A sweet historical romance. I love a good amnesia story, and this one worked great on that count. Very romantic, just a bit slow and predictable in places.

    5. Keri on said:

      4.5 Stars. Loved Ned and knew he was going to be a awesome story. If you haven't read LC, then this is a good book to pick up. Complete standalone from the current series. Can't wait for my next LC!

      ***This book was provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.***This book made me fall in love with historical romance all over again! I forgot how simply romantic they are…how sweet and tender love scenes can be. (Though this book went the other way as well and was smokin’ hot!)I absolutely adored Kate and Edward. I liked them separately; I liked them together. I just loved them.It’s hard to write a good plot that includes amnesia, but I feel like this author did that. Edward [...]

      I quite enjoyed this one, though it was marred a bit by those intolerable noble actions I've come to despise that crop up in most historical romances. It's all a matter of people not being together merely because they've chosen to make things complicated. It's almost as if a good portion of humanity feels the desire to punish themselves for daring to feel happy, and the entire topic depresses me. Which is, I suppose, why I at least slightly enjoy the stories with the happy ending. This one is be [...]

      Whee that was fun! This book left me quite pleased, albeit a little breathless, at the end. Such a witty, wicked, sexy, and enjoyable read with a splendid HEA.The only problem I have with the book--don’t judge me but I look at covers--is that Edward is BLONDE headed in this story, not dark brown or black like the inside cover suggests. Ah, yes. Blonde like this gorgeous hunk of a man. This is Edward. Ladies, you can thank me later.Now, as I was sayingThe hero and heroine are so well written. K [...]

      An absolutely lovely historical romance, In Love with a Wicked Man was a wonderful read. The romance was sweet and steamy, the secrets were unpredictable, and the book was perfect. I really enjoyed reading this fantastic book.Kate was a strong heroine. She wasn't particularly bold or sassy, but she had a quiet strength that let her stand up to anyone who sought to manipulate her. And, that was a lot of people, considering she was a landowner and baroness on her own right. She was very devoted to [...]

      4/5; 4 stars A-Although my shelves don't reflect it, in the days before I read most of the books written by this author. I always enjoyed her style of writing a historical romance. This book reminds me again of why. There is no political intrigue, no epic quest, no dark plot. The pacing is relaxed but steady. It is just a story of basically decent people who come to love each other. Ned Quartermaine was a character in the previous series, a rather nefarious owner of a gambling establishment. In [...]

      I like Liz Carlyle’s writing and story telling and she did not disappoint me with In Love With a Wicked Man.The Trope: Kate’s horse jumps a stone wall and causes Edward to fall and hit his head when he pulls up so they do not collide. When Edward wakes up he does not know who he is.The Characters: Kate is the titleholder at Bellecombe Castle. She is strong, efficient, busy and never expects to marry. Edward is a second son who was turned off at a very early age. He is attracted to Kate but e [...]

      Originally published at Reading RealityThis is a wickedly delicious historical romp. It’s one of those romances where the readers get to wallow in the delightful froth of it all, but the characters never do, because it’s not really frothy. The heroine is pragmatic and even the women who seem flighty at first glance turn out to be hiding considerable brains under their curls. As they should be.Kate is the practical and pragmatic Baroness d’Allenay, and it is she who manages the estate at Be [...]

      For all those that thought Ned, one of the secondary characters from Ms. Carlyle’s Fraternatis series should have his own story, get ready! Here it comes! Ned Quartermaine is very handsome and sophisticated, but not a likable fellow. He’s been through a lot as a child and that has taught him to always look out for number one. himself. He’s a calculating and ruthless owner of a very notorious high-end gambling establishment. His patrons are crème de la crème of aristocracy, and they know [...]

      Les 4 étoiles pour le joyeux bazar que représente la famille de Kate. Sa mère est excellente et apporte un brin de folie à l'histoire. Néanmoins, j'ai trouvé le héros un peu effacé, dommage, il aurait gagné à être plus brut.Une nouvelle collection Harlequin à suivre pour celles qui aiment les historiques :)

      Come on! Was this book really written by Liz Carlyle? The Liz Carlyle that wrote "A Woman of Virtue" and "A Woman Scorned?"Background:Young Edward, a 12 year old male who appears to be impoverished due to poorly fitted clothing and state of hunger, is being kicked out of his 6th boarding school. The schoolmaster explains to Mr. Hedge, who is apparently Edward's natural father, that Edward has broken the arm of a school mate and he is no longer welcome at the school. Mr. Hedge owns a low gaming h [...]

      Definition of "plain" - simple, ordinary, unadorned, unembellished, unornamented, unostentatious, unfussy, basic, modest, unsophisticated - unless you are a heroine in a romance novel.It's been awhile since I've read a Liz Carlyle. I loved her earlier books. A Woman of Virtue is one of my all-time favorite books. However, the last few books I have been unable to finish and the paranormal phew-phew didn't help. So, it was with a bit of trepidation that I opened up In Love With a Wicked Man and, f [...]

      I wasn't sure when I started this how I would like it. I am not a big fan of the amnesia story line and they usually don't enchant me anymore. But here we have a master at work and although amnesia is part of this in the beginning, it really isn't the story. It is more of a awakening and it does not go on for a long time either. This is a more quiet story as far as the journey goes. There isn't an easy one for Edward and Kate. But then they aren't easy people, but complex ones. They are both so [...]

      3.5An amnesia story! I haven't read many, but rather thought In Love with a Wicked Man was a decent one. I liked Ned and his wickedness, and his story certainly inspired sympathy (I'm not sure certain aspects ever got wrapped up to my satisfaction, though I am rather demanding in that regard). Kate was fun too, though her struggle-to-save-the-family-and-property character wasn't all that original. (Not to say Ned's was either, but you know.)There was some suspense that went on toward the end tha [...]

    22. Tracy Emro on said:

      I thought this was a very good bookThe story moved along at a nice solid pace, all the characters were likable, the love scenes were steamy and the villain was perfectly vile. I confess I have been pining over Ned since we first met/heard about him at the beginning of the series and I loved that neither the hero or heroine had any paranormal ability. While the paranormal aspect if this series was well done and interesting, it was getting a bit played and the lack in this book was refreshing.Ned [...]

      I was lamenting that this month I seemed to be giving a "B" at best to everything I've been reading, so it was a relief to notice that I still enjoy Carlyle as much as I have in the past. This book, with a strong and admirable heroine is a delight to read. I am totally lost in how Carlyle's series are meant to function, as when I look at fantasticfiction I seem to get mixed messages, but I didn't feel I was missing out on anything, or I did indeed read this when I was meant to, in terms of her o [...]

      I really enjoyed this book. The characters were different than most common romance books, the characters were very well developed and well human with their feelings and flaws. I liked that the heroine wasn't the typical damsel in distress and actually knew what she wanted out of life and others. Bonus: the hero wasn't an overstuffed egotistical know-it-all either. yay! The plot was new and fresh, I don't feel like I'd read the story a hundred times already. I'm really excited to see what else th [...]

      It's rare to find a historical romance novel that doesn't portray the heroine as feeling guilty for embracing her sexuality. Kate doesn't need a man in her life, but she finds herself wanting one in particular, & she gets him, and it's awesome for both of them & almost everyone around them. A solidly engaging read that suffers from none of the heavy-handed contrivances that often plague romance novels. The steamy scenes suffer from an overuse of the word "Ummm," perhaps, but that's the o [...]

      Did not realize there was a story about Ned coming. Walked in the bookstore and there it was. I just had a marathon read of the 1st 4, so was quite happy. Loved him as a secondary character, really loved him in his own book. And Kate made a worthy adversary,a woman who has inherited acastle and baroncy in her own name, with a wild family. So many great surprise side stories. I stayed up until midnight last night to finish!

      I read this in audio format and it was thoroughly entertaining. A handsome amnesiac falls under the care of a competent spinster, yes please! Colorful characters throughout. Recommend as a fun summer read.
