I'm very wary of trying new authors, but Jennifer Haywoods debut book is fantastic. I had trouble putting it down to go to sleep. I love her plot and characters. Hasn't any woman wondered what would I do if I had two husbands? I know the whole sleeping arrangement thing would be complicated, because men can be such..... But hey, one can dream.

I started reading A Hint of Wicked late one night thinking I would just read a few pages before I went to sleep, but quickly found myself completely absorbed in the love triangle between childhood friends and unable to put it down.Was this review helpful?

Garrett, the Duke of Calton, fell in love and had been happily married to Sophie for four years when he is called to duty to fight in the battle of Waterloo where he is wounded and presumed dead. Seven grief stricken years pass, and during that time best friends Sophie and Tristan, the new Duke of Calton, find solace in each others arms, fall in love and marry.
After eight years of being missing Garrett returns wanting to resume his old life, only to find he has been proclaimed dead, his heir has become the new Duke of Calton, and his wife is now married to the man he once considered as close as a brother. How does he begin to get his life and his wife back? Does Tristan resolve himself to losing everything that he holds dear...Sophie? And how does Sophie choose between Garrett whom she loved passionately in her youth, and Tristan whom she loves deeply as a grown woman?
A Hint of Wicked is the first historical romance this year I have reviewed that I can honestly say that I loved. I had been eager to read this one form the moment I first read about it, and was actually a little bit wary that I might have built it up too much in my head, and as a result setting myself up for disappointment. Don't despair if you have read an abundance of mediocre historical romances lately like I have. Never fear Wicked is here to end the doldrums!
This is the first novel that I have read by Jennifer Haymore so I did not know what to expect. Now I know. I should expect a compelling story with intrigue, lots of emotion, very steamy loves scenes for a traditional historical romance, and I should plan to devour it in one sitting...everything else can wait. I honestly could not put the book down. I had to find out who Sophie would choose, and surprisingly I was not able to guess until the very end of the book. It was that well written. I will eagerly be anticipating the next book in the series, A Touch of Scandal, her sequel to A Hint of Wicked, which was wickedly good.

After the courts declared him legally dead, she marries his beat friend and heir to the title, land, and estates of Garrett. Sophie gives her heart and soul to Tristan when out of the blue Garrett returns, demanding his title, his lands, and his wife back....
Sophie must choose who she wants. She loves Tristan.... She is still in love with Garrett. How can she love them both? Her choice will ultimately destroy one of them.
When I first read the title of this book, I figured it would be quite Spicy. I was quite surprised. There are just a couple parts that are a little erotic, but nothing major. Really, the title is a little misleading. Once I got started on the book, it was very hard to put down, as I had to see what was going to happen next. It is a page-turner right to the very end.
