After reading several of the Maiden Lane books in random order, I decided that it was time to start at the very beginning. So I headed on over to Amazon and ordered the books that were missing from my collection, including Wicked Intentions.
What a wonderful introduction this turned out to be! Filled with intrigue as the dashing (and somewhat mysteriously dangerous) Lord Caire searches Saint Giles for a murderer together with widowed Temperence Dews, this story contained the brilliantly crafted characters, vivid setting, and entertaining dialogue that makes Elizabeth Hoyt's novels as compelling as they are.
This book features a hero who stands apart from all the rest and who is therefore sure to leave a lasting impression. And if you'd like to catch a glimpse of the tarnished Regency slums cast against the opulence of Mayfair ballrooms with startling contrast between the social classes of that time, this is the series you've been looking for!
