Romance Friday: A Hint of Wicked - Jennifer Haymore

Sophie, the Duchess of Calton, has finally moved on. After seven years mourning the loss of her husband, Garrett, at Waterloo, she has married his cousin and heir, Tristan. Sophie gives herself to him body and soul. . . until the day Garrett returns from the Continent, demanding his title, his lands-and his wife. 

TORN BETWEEN TWO HUSBANDS . . . 

Now Sophie must choose between her first love and her new love, knowing that no matter what, her choice will destroy one of the men she adores. Will it be Garrett, her childhood sweetheart, whose loss nearly destroyed her once already? Or will it be Tristan, beloved friend turned lover, who supported her through the last, dark years and introduced her to a passion she had never known? As her two husbands battle for her heart, Sophie finds herself immersed in a dangerous game-where the stakes are not only love . . . but life and death. 

My thoughts:
Wow, talk about dilemma! Sophie loves Tristan and is happy but...*music of doom* While they are doing it her husband rushes in. Yes her husband who has been dead for 7 years. He is her legal hubby then. But, she loves Tristan. But she also loves Gareth, her first love.

Ok so you see the dilemma. She is in love with 2 men. And it's not her fault since Gareth went missing at Waterloo. She did not even re-marry that long ago. It really tore at the heartstrings, but yes I was team Tristan. She loved, she lost and she loved again. Tristan was awesome, and deserved a hug.

Gareth, no, I did not feel it. But then he had ISSUES. And first love, well, she grew up, they were not right for each other anymore.

All in all, a great book. I had suddenly read 200 pages, the next day, same thing happened. Romance, struggle, and drama promised, plus danger.

Conclusion:
On another note. I have read book 2 and I do want to read book 3 too. A good series.

This is one of those premises that can either bomb or work really well. Sounds like this author handled it well!

I just checked my kindle - I have this book! Sounds like I should read it :)

Blodeuedd said...

Keertana said...

Glad you're enjoying this series! I'm not a fan of love triangles in the least and seriously doubt I'd enjoy this too much but perhaps I should check out some of this author's other works. Wonderful review! :)

Blodeuedd said...

It worked cos it was not really a triangle. She loved her new hubby, then her old came back

Charlie (The Worm Hole) said...

With 7 years, that's quite some time. In a way especially if she'd only just remarried. Sounds a great book.

Carole Rae said...

oooooooooooooooooooooooh snap. I want to know WHY it took 7 years to come back.

Blodeuedd said...

It was tough, she mourned, finally loved again and Boom hubby comes back

Blodeuedd said...

He "died" at waterloo, the rest is history

Chris said...

But there's a cut off head on the cover!!

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, I know but still, no guy, so not so cliche

Teddyree said...
