Historical Romance – July 27th, 2010
5 Stars

Wicked Intentions is the first book in Elizabeth Hoyt’s brand new Maiden Lane Series. As someone who is a big fan of not only historical romances but also of series I was very excited to hear that she was coming out with another great new series. I have always loved her books so I couldn’t wait to start this one.

Wicked Intentions tells us the story of Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire. He is on the hunt in St. Giles, London’s most notorious slum. There he hopes to find the savage killer of his mistress. Hopelessly lost, he discovers the Widow Temperance Dews. She runs a founding children’s home in the area with her brother. After meeting Mrs. Dews he makes her a simply offer. In return for Temperance’s help navigating London he will introduce her to members of the ton where she will be able to find a new benefactor for her home and save it from being closed. As these two become increasingly involved in the search for a killer they are also drawn into temptation as their attraction to each other results in heated passion. However, danger lurks as a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to keep them from finding out the truth. And both must learn to trust each other with not only their live but possibly also with their hearts.

Elizabeth Hoyt did another splendid job of creating entertaining characters in this suspenseful read. They both had deep personal issues that made this reader really invested in the well-being of the characters. I also loved how this author has created additional characters that are equally intriguing so you can’t wait for them to have their own story!

This was a complex story but also an easy read. If you are looking for a phenomenal historical romance that has moving characters then this is the book for you! Elizabeth Hoyt has done an outstanding job. Not only does she create the beginnings of a new and exciting series but the way she introduces characters you easily care for and want to succeed makes you crave for more!!

This book will unquestionably satisfy her current fans and any readers of historical romance.
