Some Like it Wicked – Teresa Medeiros

Medeiros, Teresa. Some Like it Wicked. (New York: Avon, 2008). ISBN – 9780061235351.

Main Characters: Catriona Kincaid and Sir Simon Wescott

Date: 1810

Description from book:

Some like it dangerous . . .

Highland beauty Catriona Kincaid cares nothing for propriety – or even her own safety – when she storms the grounds of Newgate Prison. Determined to return to Scotland and restore her clan’s honor, she seeks the help of Sir Simon Wescott, a disgraced nobleman and notorious rogue. She is prepared to offer him both wealth and freedom, but she never dreams the wicked rake will be bold enough to demand a far more sensual prize.

Some like it seductive . . .

Simon is shocked to discover the tomboy he met long ago has blossomed into a headstrong temptress. Although he’s sworn off his dreams of becoming a hero, he can’t resist playing knight errant to Catriona’s damsel in distress. Both adventure and peril await them at her Highland home, where they will risk their lives to vanquish her enemies . . . and risk their hearts to discover a passion beyond their wildest dreams.

My Thoughts:

Reading this book was fun, fun, fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the story – and the characters of Catriona Kincaid and Simon Wescott. A young Catriona first meets Simon when she falls out of a hayloft landing on his back. He had been attempting to seduce her cousin at the time. When he defends her against her cousin’s tirade, Simon attains hero-type status for Catriona. She follows his naval career and keeps momentos of him. When she decides that she needs to return to Scotland, she knows exactly who she needs – even though Simon is currently in debtor’s prison. Simon, of course, isn’t really much of a hero – at least he doesn’t see himself this way. Fortunately, he does become the hero that Catriona needs him to be.

Overall, this book made me happy.
