The Wicked Bargain is not your typical Regency period romance, not when it's set in a brothel in London. Ethan Warth, the Marquis of Blackmore is a male courtesan for the wealthy nobility in 1816. The man is highly skilled in the art of pleasuring a woman. Miss Danna delves into the psyche of the man who decides to sell himself to pay off his debts. Arabella Covington is a skilled in the healing arts, however in 1816, who would hire a woman as a doctor? An act of desperation brings her to Ethan's establishment. She proves her talents in helping one of the ladies. Arabella is a naive country girl. I could not put this book down. It kept me intrigued and wanting to read more. If you are expecting a Jane Austen Regency, this is not the book for you. If you like spice and hot hunky men this book is right up your alley. I like that Miss Danna had in-depth characters, lead as well as secondary. I cared about what happened to them. I loved it when Elizabeth, one of the courtesans, pointed out obvious facts. The history and healing methods were spot on. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I look forward to her next release.
