A friend has this author on her favorites list so I picked up a book she wrote without realizing it was historical romance rather than the contemporary novels my friend enjoys. No problem - I like this genre as well. However, the entire book covered a very short period of time and was confusing at times because of the huge cast of characters. Additionally, the love/hate, approach/avoidance thing between the hero and heroine became old well before the ending, which was rushed and not nearly as sa ...more

For the past two decades, Castle Serennog has been falling into disrepair and the animals and people are beginning to starve. Circumstances are dire as "winter is coming" (sorry--had to say it). There is a lot of pressure on Lady Apryll to marry in order to save her barony; unfortunately, all of her suitors are unsuitable. *snort* Her half-brother, Payton, has a plan which may help but it involves tricking Lord Devlynne of Black Thorne by distracting him during a party while Payton and his cohor ...more

average. their manner of speaking (nay, my lady, etc) got old. just say no. the ending seemed to happen rather abruptly and i felt like there were a lot of loose ends and people who i still didnt understand which team they were on.

I have never read one of Lisa Jackson's historical romances, just her romantic suspense. Originally published in 2002, this was a 2008 reissue. Short, easy read. Lady Apryll has been persuaded to help her bastard brother steal riches from Black Thorn castle. But the plan goes awry when her brother decides to kidnap Lord Devlynn's son as well. Sparks fly between Lady Apryll and Lord Devlynn, two enemies, but both being betrayed by those closest to them. Quite enjoyable.

The book reads like a roller coaster ride, one exciting scene after another. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I thought the story ended abruptly. I would have liked to see the resolution of conflicts drawn out a little more. And a little more hoochie koochie in the bedroom. But overall, it was a fine story, well told. A fun read.

Lord Devlynn's dance with Lady Apryll made him think of more than dancing. But before the the evening was very old, Lady Apryll had vanished. Lord Devlynn had a missing son, castle jewels, stolen horses, and murdered workers.
The search is on to save his son, whatever it takes to overcome the ones who have done this.

The ending seemed rushed and it is definitely not her best book, but I think if you enjoy most of Lisa Jackson's stuff then Wild and Wicked is worth reading.
