Synopsis (Goodreads):
One of the most notoriously eligible bachelors in Europe is finally ready to marry . . .

For fiercely independent Grier Hadley, being the illegitimate daughter of one of London's most unsavory characters has only one advantage: an enormous, ill-gotten dowry.

Prince Sevastian Maksimi knows where his duty lies: he must find a well-bred young lady—one with a considerable fortune to her name—wed her promptly, and get to the business of producing an heir.

The last thing Grier needs is some unattainable prince curling her toes with his smoldering glances and wicked suggestions. As far as Sev is concerned, she lacks the breeding to become a princess. And yet one kiss from this arresting female is all it takes for him to realize that anyone else in his arms would be unthinkable . . .
Thoughts on Wicked in Your Arms: Oh, man. Grier's stoicism in the face of the BRUTAL way the society ladies (and men) treated her for her illegitimacy kind of killed me. She ignores it as best she can, but the words still hurt. She hates the balls and city life after the freedom she'd known on her own, but she feels she has no other choice.

Oh, Grier.

I didn't blame her at all for trying out a few kisses on Sev. Yeah, he was kind of douchey to her when they first met (well, when he was saying unflattering things and she was hiding behind a fern), but they had some smolder and more than a little spark and sometimes you just have to give into that.

Frankly, I liked the book. It was fun and it let me root for the upstart, not always lady-like girl to take the starch out of the stuffy prince. And she did manage to make him unbend. Several times. The "awkwardly hiding in a wardrobe while another couple is getting it on outside" scene was just a bonus.


  1. I should read some of her adult books. I recently read her NA book Foreplay and enjoyed it so now I want the adult steam not the NA steam!

    Thanks for the great review!

  2. Damn those princes and their fern-penetrating, snide remarks!
