REVIEW BY LEE ANNE:

Some Like it Wicked is the lovely tale of a woman who is so sweet and yet has been shunned by the ton. She bears this all and plans to leave polite society when Rupert Stirling decides he wants her in his life. He just barrels in and takes over, must to Pandora’s displeasure.

Rupert feels the need to protect Pandora. Every time he turns around, he’s rescuing her from some tragedy. Everything from unwanted attentions from  unwanted suitors to a fire in her townhome. Rupert is there to keep her safe, but who will protect her from him?

Rumors are flying through polite society about Pandora. Polite society is not so polite. They are digging her past and making her life miserable. Rupert has the same problem. Rumors are flying about him, however, since he’s a man, it’s not a big deal. His problem is much bigger and there’s only one solution to his problem. He’s hoping Pandora will solve his problem. But as many people know, things are not as they seem.

I loved watching these two in action. The tension between them is thick and she doesn’t know what to think. Rupert is stubborn and used to getting his way. However, Pandora doesn’t just roll over and let him do whatever he thinks is best. She argues and fights with him the entire time. Rupert isn’t used to people saying no to him. He finds Pandora refreshing, an “original”. She intrigues him.

Will Rupert get his way or will Pandora retreat from society and move to the country?

ABOUT THE REVIEWER:

I am a happily married mother of three very busy children.  Most of my time is spent chauffeuring my kids to their various activities. I cram reading into any spare moment I have. Some days I can have an hour or two and others I’m sneaking in quick reads while waiting on the kids to finish their soccer or gymnastics practice. I like to read a wide variety of genres but I definitely prefer romance. I can’t really pinpoint a favorite author as it changes on a regular basis. I absolutely love finding new authors and giving their stories a chance to be heard. We all have a voice in our heads writing stories and those voices should be given a chance to be heard.
