Blog Tour: Hint of Wicked by Jennifer Haymore

Hint of Wicked was a rollercoaster! Jennifer Haymore takes you on a ride through a particularly tumultuous time in Sophie, the Duchess of Calton's life. After mourning the loss of her husband for over 6 years, she decides to move on and marries her deceased husband's friend & heir, Tristan. During a night of passion with Tristan, Garrett returns (unannounced) demanding his life and his wife back! However, Tristan will not let her go without a fight (he was tired of loving her from afar)! Now Sophie is stuck between her two husbands; her first love and her new love. What's a girl to do?

I really enjoyed getting to know Sophie's character. She was loving and endearing, but incredibly strong and protective of those she loves. I am a huge fan of period pieces and I especially love it with the heroine isn't just another piece of decoration. The plot was complicated and intricate enough to keep you enveloped in the story. One of my favorite features of this book was that Jennifer jumped right into it without wasting too much time in setting up the storyline. At first, I was concerned that the story would lose steam along the way and to my pleasant surprise it didn't...it was a definite page-turner! It doesn't wrap up until the very end and even then, it leaves enough of an opening for the sequel (that I'll now be waiting anxiously for come April 2010).

In addition, this book also offers quite a bit of heat too! I think Jennifer did a great job at narrating the love scenes without getting too raunchy. It was just enough to make you blush :)

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good, well-written historical romance!
