Miss Alice Bursnell is determined to wreak revenge on Nathaniel Eastwood, Viscount Abingdon, for the seduction, ruin, and death of her beloved twin sister. But how to expose a seducer without falling prey herself? As she gets closer to Nathaniel, she finds she is in serious danger of following in her sister’s much-too-tempted footsteps. The man is nothing like the heartless rake she expected...and his kisses are truly divine. Could she be wrong about him?
When a mysterious and gorgeous woman confronts Nathaniel at a fancy ball, he suspects she has murder on her mind—his own. But the more he tries to determine who the deceptively innocent beauty is—and what she’s up to—the deeper he falls under her alluring spell. Nathaniel fears he’s in imminent danger of losing his life...or worse, his heart.
Twice as Wicked takes us a journey to the year 1816 in the beautiful town of Northumberland, England. Where identical Adelaide and Alice have lived their entire lives. They both were sweet young girls, but Adelaide has gotten herself into a situation that is suitable for a young lady, so that she doesn’t bring shame on her family she is sent away. Leaving her sister behind. And this is where our story begins.
Alice has learned that her sister Adelaide dies during childbirth and she is angry and hurt, at the man who got her sister in the situation and for not making the situation right either. So, what does she do? She sets out to find the man and inflict some much needed revenge. Finding him was he problem, but she has one clue, and takes it and runs with it. Leading her to a man named Nathaniel Eastwood, who happens to be the Viscount Abingdon. But he is most certainly not what she was expecting from a man who left her pregnant sister to fend for herself to be like.
The characters are in this are so we developed, and felt so easy to connect with. Alice was heart stricken by the death of her of twin, and I wouldn’t have expected anything less. And when she set her mind to something, there is no stopping her. I really like that she was this strong independent women, that didn’t hold back. It was the norm for this era, but of course, I always root for the rebellious types anyway. Now, Nathaniel is shy and passive, and even though Alice gives him such a hard time with each encounter they have he never has a harsh word towards her. I wanted to smack her a couple of time, wow was she snooty and snippy with him, but that her playing the part so I looked past it. The banter between them had me giggling at times though. But, Nathaniel still didn’t trust her completely, and that I will give him credit for and for just being a good guy all around.
As story progress and Alice is trying to piece together how she is going to get her revenge for her sister, she learns that Nathaniel is in danger from someone who really is trying to kill him. I was curious to see how that would play into Alice’s plan of revenge. And who was trying to kill Nathaniel and why? Did it have something to do with family history? And that, love/hate relationship that Alice and Nathaniel had at the beginning turned into some pretty steamy sexy scenes. With a few little twist and much changes between Alice and Nathaniel *fans self* the story becomes even more engrossing. And that ending was freakin fantastic!
Twice as Wicked was a tale of a sisters revenge that turns into a steamy historical romance, what more could I ask for. I can’t wait to see what the next book in the series will bring.
