Some Like It Wicked is the first book I've read by Teresa Medeiros and I really liked it. I bought The Devil Wears Plaid a whole ago but never got around to reading it. Then I saw that Laurie had this and it sounded good, so I figured I'd give it a go. Plus, it would give me a little bit of feel for Medeiros' writing before I read The Devil Wears Plaid since this was one of her earlier works. At this point, I really want to jump right into reading the next book, Some Like It Wild, because I ...more

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

Really 3.5 stars.
My historical streak continues with “Some Like It Wicked” by Teresa Medeiros. I enjoy Ms. Medeiros’ writing and I also enjoy stories about Scotland (ah, brawny highlanders in kilts!), so I couldn’t put this one off for long. As I began the book, I was soon lost back in time in England, rooting for a beauty that refuses to give up on her hero.

Catriona is determined to find the brother who sent her off to England when she was just

I would've really loved this book if I wasn't so tired of "I am not good enough for you excuses that heroes come up with but still have sex with the virgin heroines." Like seriously if you can't marry her keep the pants zipped or in this case stay married to her. The highlanders characters were adorable. The heroine also got on my nerves...grow some spine women....he keeps treating you like shit and you keep going back like really? The second book was way better although plagued by similar ...more

SOME LIKE IT WICKED has inconsistent characters (now he's a wicked rake! now he's a mellow sweetheart! now he's wicked again!), a totally ridiculous plot (heroine wants to run off and do...what?), and not much else to recommend it. Oh, and as a bonus feature, there are a ton of historical errors (the author refers to buying commissions in the navy, seems to think the card games whist and faro resemble poker, has a mail coach drop a passenger off at her front door...and then there's the ...more

I really enjoyed this book.. Teresa Medeiros' books are a lot of fun to read, they are fast-paced, funny, romantic and sexy all wrapped together and this book is no exception! I usually don't read all the books in a series back to back (call me weird, but I tend to get bored!), but with this book I find myself wanting to jump right into the next book, so I think I'll do just that! Highly recommended! :)

Yazara ikinci bir şans vermekle çok iyi yapmışım.Bu kitaba bayıldım tek kelimeyle.Simon ve Kitty'nin eğlenceli diyalogları,maceraları harikaydı. :D
It was a light and fun read, nothing serious and heavily emotional. It has just the right amount of humor and romance, the characters were likable, and the chemistry between Catriona and Simon was very well written.

After dealing with the gruesome deaths of her parents as a child, Catriona was sent to her uncle by her brother Connor to grow up as a respectable young lady. She has this fervent dream of reuniting the Kincaid clan and later on she grows up to make it come true, and there's nothing

2 stars. I wanted more plot and more character development. It needed something special or different.

Catriona’s Scottish parents were killed by the English. Her brother stayed in Scotland and sent her to live with an uncle in England. Her cousins made life difficult, and she dreamed of returning to Scotland. Catriona first met Simon when he was having a tryst with Alice, Catriona’s cousin. Simon then served in the Navy and was given a hero’s welcome when he returned. But he was mise

This ok, but not great for me. I liked it well enough but the back and forth between 'I love you' and 'I hate you', in deeds if not words, got old. It felt much older than when it was written. New to me author and this isn't enough to make me say she isn't for me, but I'm not in a hurry to read another.

I listened to the audio of this and it was ok too. New to me narrator, Charlotte Parry, was easy to listen to. The pauses between chapters seemed far too long, I kept wondering if I had accidental

It has been a while since Ms. Medeiros released her last novel. So, I had high hopes for her latest release. When I first started this book, I did not like the hero at all. He was a womanizer who seemed to have no hope of ever being reformed. Half way through the book though, you find out more about him and why he acts the way he does. I became sympathetic to his character, and I wanted to keep reading to see how things would work out with the hero and heroine (the latter, by the way, is a nice ...more

J'avais un peu peur avant de commencer cette lecture et finalement j'ai passé un excellent moment! Les personnages sont très plaisants, dotés d'un humour et de réparties qui donnent des dialogues qui m'ont beaucoup fait sourire. Entre le libertin notoire et la belle et rebelle écossaise, c'est un volcan en fusion qui sévit, J'aime ce cas de figure dans la RH, les héros qui se marient pour des intérêts communs mais souvent différents et qui amène bien souvent à des rapports de force passionnés ...more
Catriona Kincaid wants more than anything to get the Highland lands back once belonging to her family. To do this she enlists the help of Simon Westcott, a naval hero that she has secretly harbored a crush for since she first met him. Catriona proposes a marriage of convenience, Simon needs money and Catriona needs a husband to escort her to the Highlands.

I liked how spirited Catriona Kincaid was, just like Simon Wescott. Their banter and matter of fact relationship spurred the sexual tension b

Empezó bien, pero esta autora abusó mucho de la palabra "violación".
¿De verdad cree que por muy galán sea un hombre uno de mujer quiere ser violada por éste?
Otro inconveniente que tuve fue el tema del sexo. Está bien emplearlo como subtema, pero tampoco no abusar con rellenar cada página con sexo , deseo y todas esa estúpideces por no tener imaginación en escribir una buena trama.
El género histórico-romántico está empezando a apestar como el NA.

Catriona has been in love with Simon since she was 15 years old. She finally finds a way to spend time with him and realize her dreams. Simon introduces her to the decadent world of passion and lovemaking: making her a woman and a wife in all ways. This love story is a great read and I didn't want to put it down!!

I would give a long review but it would be pointless because there's only a few words to describe Some Like it Wicked. Wonderful, Funny, lots of adventure, and most importantly lots of romance! Teresa Medeiros delivers yet another awesome historical romance!

Desde hace mucho tiempo quería probar el estilo dr la autora y esta serie me ha interesado mucho. Es el segundo libro que leo de la autora y me ha gustado.

Tiene una trama común pero interesante, con giros inesperados y personajes principales aceptables. La chica me ha gustado, es adecuado su desarrolo respecto a los acontecimientos y me ha parecido inteligente y convincente.

My English review:

Mon avis en français:

Je ne lis pas beaucoup de romances historiques et le titre de celle-ci ne m’avait pas particulièrement attiré au départ mais comme l’auteure est Teresa Medeiros et que j’avais beaucoup aimé « A toi jusqu’à l’aube », un autre de ses romans, j’étais donc assez curieuse de découvrir un autre de ses livres.

Vu le temps encore exécrable de la semaine, je trouvais que c’était le moment de sortir un ténébreux et très sexy highlander de ma PAL. J’ai donc jeté, tout naturellement, mon dévolu sur la dernière romance de Teresa Medeiros, publiée chez Milady, persuadée que j’y trouverais mon compte en highlanders. Malheureusement cela n’a pas été le cas!

Je commencerais par une remarque sur le choix du titre. WFT???!!! Je ne comprends absolument pas le choix du titre car il n’a aucun lien avec l’histoire. Ce

J'avais beaucoup aimé "Le diable s'habille en tartan" de Teresa Medeiros et j'étais curieuse de découvrir ce premier tome d'une nouvelle série sur les Highlanders. Je remercie Aurélia et les éditions Milady Romance pour cette lecture en avant-première. Même si ce roman se lit facilement, j'ai été déçue. Cette romance historique n'est pas mauvaise, mais beaucoup moins prenante que la précédente.

After reading Shadows and Lace, this book was a breath of fresh air. You've got your spunky heroine, the reluctant hero and a motley of side characters that makes the story funny, heart-warming and just fun to read.

Love the banter between Simon (seems to be a very popular common-sounding name for a not so straight-laced hero in many books) and Catriona. Found myself smiling when reading = that means to me the story is entertaining enough and manages to engage me to a point that i can't keep my

Ce roman fait partie d'un dyptique sur la famille Kincaid.

Ainsi nous commençons par découvrir la soeur, Catriona qui a passé la plus grande partie de sa vie à Londre alors que son coeur appartient à l'écosse.

C'est un personnage qui se sent déraciner, qui est en quête d'identité, ce pourquoi elle décide de partir en Ecosse retrouver son frère Connor dont elle n'a plus de nouvelle depuis son arrivée en Angleterre.

L'histoire se déroule vers la fin du conflit entre l’Angleterre et l'Ecosse. l'aute
