A Hint of Wicked

To a certain extent, my review is influenced by my expectation that Sophie would end up with both men. I felt bitterly let down by the ending, which was utterly unexpected, to a certain extent. Then, also, I thought that this could have been a good story if Haymore hadn't tried to have everything going on all at the same time. Between Fisk, Becky, Garrett, Tristan, and the problems of everyone else around them, I felt beleaguered rather than intrigued. I found myself wanting to skim through the book just so I could figure out what Sophie was going to decide in the end. For what its worth, despite the cliffhanger at the end, how they resolved things does make a certain grim sort of logic. The ending also seems set up for another book, which I find irritating, but I will probably get it just so I can see if things are made right in it.

Book Blurb for A Hint of Wicked


Sophie, the Duchess of Calton, has finally moved on. After seven years mourning the loss of her husband, Garrett, at Waterloo, she has married his best friend and heir, Tristan. Sophie gives herself to him body and soul…until the day Garrett returns from the Continent, demanding his title, his lands—and his wife.


Now Sophie must choose between her first love and her new love, knowing that no matter what, her choice will destroy one of the men she adores. Will it be Garrett, her childhood sweetheart, whose loss nearly destroyed her once already? Or will it be Tristan, beloved friend turned lover, who supported her through the last, dark years and introduced her to a passion she had never known? As her two husbands battle for her heart, Sophie finds herself immersed in a dangerous game—where the stakes are not only love…but life and death.
