A Lady's Desperate Choice
In Wicked Promise by Kat Martin, when the loathsome Lord Bascomb tries to force her into marriage, Elizabeth Woolcot, against her will, must appeal to her influential guardian. Nicholas Warring, known as the Wicked Early, is a darkly handsome charismatic figure--with the power to save her but a past that could put her reputation dangerously at risk. A ruthless womanizer, he has also been convicted of murder--and barely escaped hanging.

A rogue's tainted honor
Elizabeth can't help her attraction to the man who haunts her dreams--nor he his hunger for her. But she knows it can never be. For Nicholas is a married man. Then a heinous crime shatters their lives--and Nick is the natural suspect. Elizabeth wants to believe in his innocence more than life and love itself--but can she trust a man who has killed before?

    This Had Some Wickedly Good Love Scenes...

    I have read two other novels by Kat Martin in the past year ¿ ¿Innocence Undone¿ (fair) and ¿The Devil¿s Necklace¿ (so-so at best). I found them only to be average and thought about giving up on this author but, I had already bought other books at the same time so¿I read them too. ¿Wicked Promise¿ ended up being a pleasant surprise! I really liked the main characters in this story ¿ Elizabeth and Nick. They had appealing traits that made them believable and likeable. I especially liked that Elizabeth allowed her emotions to come out and she gave to those she cared for with her whole heart and soul. She did not hold back and that allowed her to blossom as a woman. Nick had his naughty ways and clouded past but, even with so many mistakes in his past, he was clearly a kind and loving man. I didn¿t care for Nick¿s drinking and gaming and womanizing in the beginning but, it was understood he was trying to blot out a very difficult and ugly past ¿ the murder, the imprisonment, the loss of friends and the loss of his less than loyal first wife. Plus¿you could tell his heart was never into being truly bad and as Elizabeth came into his life, he started to become the man he was always meant to be. He was a magnificent man in the making. There was a lot going on in this story ¿ Elizabeth coming to stay with him and be his ward, Elizabeth and Nick¿s growing fascination and attraction for one another, Nick¿s need to marry her off to please his family and friends and do what was right, Nick trying to clear his bad past and get a divorce from his first wife and then¿dealing with the murder of his first wife. Busy, busy, busy but, still all interesting. There was also lots of side characters. But¿everyone seemed to have a role to play and it was not so deep and complex that you couldn¿t follow the changing scenes and roles everyone played. The love scenes were tastefully written and powerful. You could feel the blossoming attraction between Nick and Elizabeth from the first. I liked that the author gave time for their interest to grow and the attraction to become intense and powerful. I think fans of Kat Martin will enjoy this book even more than her usual writings. Those who have tried her like me and found other books only so-so should visit this one for sure. It was very appealing and likable and will go on one of my favorites list. This author really drew me into the powerful feelings of these characters and the relationship and developments felt real and never contrived. Very enjoyable. Pick this one up and enjoy it. I certainly did.

    I love Kat Martin!!!!

    I loved this book! An Excellent story. Elizabeth Woolcot goes to Nicholas Warring for protection against Lord Bascomb who will do ANYTHING to make Elizabeth his bride. Nicholas tries to distance himself from Elizabeth because he's married and a convicted murderer, yet she's all he can think of and can't stay away.The chemistry between Nicholas and Elizabeth is wonderful, and I truly enjoyed their story. I thoroughly enjoyed the murder mystery. Those who read this book can find Rand Clayton, Duke of Beldon in his story Perfect Sin. Must read Kat Martin's Bold Angel, Perfect Sin, Silk and Steel, and Innocence Undone!!!
