When I read the back it definitely sounded interesting and different then the norm. The plot supposedly was about a young woman named Pippa looking for her Fiance and Maxwell who was helping her. Unfortunately that had almost nothing to do with he actual plot. Yes they did go "looking" for her fiance but halfway through it was more about parties and her crazy grandmother. There was NO chemistry between the two characters and it was almost awkward to read. The ending was anticlimactic and boring just like the rest of the book.

After reading the prologue, which seemed to promise an interesting story and a potentially intriguing hero, I settled down for a thoroughly good read and a rousing ultimate novel. Alas, the plot and the characters were all flat and uninteresting.

In 1803 seven months ago, Phillipa "Pippa" Carstairs' betrothed Noel vanished immediately after their engagement party. Pippa's grandfather hires Lord Maxwell Sutton to find the missing fiancé as his grandchild is caught in a no lady's land by the Ton since Noel is not reported dead and they had not married as widowhood or desertion is acceptable while nothing else is. When Pippa first meets Maxwell, she believes he is a dandy whose cravat will be in the way of a meaningful investigation. However, Pippa quickly revises her opinion of a shallow bored aristocrat as she finds him to be intelligent and witty. As she falls in love with Maxwell, she hopes he never finds her intended though she believes he will. As for Maxwell, he has also fallen in love, but to have any future with his Pippa, he believes he must find her fiancé. This is a great Regency romantic mystery starring two likable strong protagonists who come together over the search for her lost fiancé. Few sub-genre writers have been as consistently strong as Edith Layton who passed away in May. TO LOVE A WICKED LORD pays homage to this terrific author who in spite of her fight with cancer for several years kept her readers enthralled with super historicals like this one. Harriet Klausner
