Just finished this delightful book. I may be predictable, but it's a very fun read. Even laughed out loud a couple of times. If you enjoy reading romances, I recommend this one...but I've never read a Medeiros I didn't enjoy!

Catriona Kidcaid is a loyal Scot's women who wants to return to Scotland to find her brother. She was shipped off to England after her parents were killed to live with her Uncle the Earl. She talks Sir Simon Wescott (born on other side blanket to Duke) into helping her with plan to save her Kidcaid Scottish Land.... I like the connection between the main chacaters. Catriona raised in Scotland but sent to England at age 11 when her parents died, has a dream. And in that dream, she returns to Scotland to reunite with her brother and help lead the clan Kincaid in reclaiming their land. Later at 16 she adds Simon to that dream as her white knight, prince charming, etc. after interrupting him as he attempted to have a little fun with her annoying selfish cousin. He of course mistakes her for a "lad" until looking a bit closer and seeing she's just an awkward teenage girl. At 21 she approaches her white knight (aka Simon) while he's in debtors prison. Still starry eyed (and of course now a ravishing beauty) she recruits him to help her travel to Scotland to find her brother before the old mean Englishman who threatened to marry her kills all the remaining Kincaids so they cannot challenge his ownership of their land that he now owns. And by recruit I mean pay him with half her dowry.

What a fantasitic book! I absolutely adore Simon and Catriona. They are strong, refreshing, well developed characters who you will instantly fall in love with. If you are looking for something different from the typical 'love at first sight across a ballroom floor' book, then 'some like it wicked' is definitely the book for you.

I feel like I've been looking for this book forever! I was so tired of romances where all of the attraction between hero and heroine seemed to be sexual. With Simon and Catriona, we actually SEE them falling in love and believe every moment of it. This is a classic 'road book' like IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT. I love it when an author actually pulls you INTO the story and you take every breath and every step with the characters. Medeiros's writing reminds me of those wonderful early Judith McNaught, Jude Deveraux and Julie Garwood books. It's a very welcome addition to my keeper shelf and I can't wait for the sequel!

Teresa Medeiros is back and she¿s better than ever. In SOME LIKE IT WICKED, a historical set in the early 1800's, Medeiros returns to her beloved Scottish Highlands with a sweeping saga of romance, honor, betrayal and love. Catriona Kincaid is the heroine of this story and I adore her. A proud, feisty and fiercely loyal Scot, she has been living with her English uncle¿s family since the age of ten when her parents were killed by redcoats and her fifteen year old brother, Connor, sent her away for her safety. The unlikely hero, Simon Wescott, is a bad, bad boy and utterly delicious. The bastard son of a nobleman, he¿s a rake and a rogue who has been seducing his way through the London ladies since he was a young man. When Catriona first encounters Simon she¿s 15 and he¿s a young Navy officer in the process of seducing her cousin before shipping out with Admiral Nelson. Their meeting is very memorable, in classic Medeiros style, and had me laughing out loud. Now approaching her 21st birthday, Catriona is determined to return to her beloved Highlands to search for her brother and, with him, restore honor to their clan but must find someone to escort her home while at the same time avoiding a forced marriage orchestrated by her uncle. She has only one name on her list - Simon Wescott, the hero of her young dreams, the Navy officer honored for saving his captain¿s life, the dissolute, disreputable, penniless rogue who now sits in a cell at Newgate, jailed for not paying his debts and, even worse, seducing the daughter of the magistrate who sentenced him. Even with all the evidence facing her, Catriona still believes that Simon is, at his core, an honorable man. Simon, of course, knows better. Still, money does talk and a bargain is struck but the stakes are raised when Simon adds a demand of his own. If he¿s going to risk his neck delivering Catriona to Scotland he wants more than just money. Simon wants a wedding night. What follows is a richly written, sweeping story filled with sparkling dialogue, plenty of humor, unexpected surprises and a depth of emotion that had me laughing, crying, cheering and sighing. Both Catriona and Simon have significant personal obstacles to overcome on their journey to a happy ending. Redeeming Simon, in particular, is no easy task but Medeiros molds him gradually and flawlessly into a man worthy of love and respect. Watching these two grow as individuals as they are tested by life and love is pure pleasure and the scenes when each of them reaches that point in their love when they willingly put the other¿s needs before their own had my own emotions spilling over. Teresa Medeiros has created a beautiful love story with characters that captured my heart and still haven¿t let go. Make room on your keeper shelf for SOME LIKE IT WICKED.

Almost sixteen year old Catriona Kincaid meets Sir Simon Wescott when she was reading Sir Walter Scott in a loft while he is seducing her cousin Alice. Whereas her vile cousin calls her a monster, he thinks nothing of her being there beyond coincidence. Although he calls her a lad and then a little girl, even his rakish actions fail to deter her from worshipping the rogue. ------------------------- Five years later in 1810, Lord Eddingham informs Catriona and her Uncle Ross that he purchased land in Scotland once owned by the Kincaids he plans to end the raids led by the outlaw Kincaid. Catriona fears that might be her brother so she decides to go home to the Highlands where her family was once head of a clan until her grandfather chose otherwise. Realistically she knows she needs an escort and is resolute that her ¿hero¿ takes her to Scotland. Simon resides in Newgate so she visits him there with an enticing proposition. She will pay off his debts, which will free him from prison if he marries her and takes her home. He agrees and once he is released he honors his new debt by marrying Catriona. The journey north is dangerous as someone apparently wants to prevent her from coming home while her beloved proves to be a real hero risking his life to keep her safe.--------------- This entertaining Regency romance is fun to follow as Catriona¿s puppy love turns into an adult love while Simon finds himself falling in love with the courageous woman whose terms he agreed to as he no longer thinks of her as a little girl. Whereas her uncle, her cousin and Eddingham display no positive attributes, fans will still enjoy this fine historical as Catriona and her hero fall in love while waiting anxiously for the sequel to see what happens with the hanging thread.------------ Harriet Klausner
