Review: A Wicked Reputation
Betrayed by her fiancé and her best friend, Lady Diana Haversham's reputation is left in ruins, and she is unjustly cast out by her family. Left with little choice, she agrees to pretend to be a courtesan to protect her benefactor's secret. What she didn't count on was meeting temptation in the form of one Lord Lucas Blackthorn.
Lucas is fascinated by the shameless Diana, whom his friends claim is his perfect counterpart. He can't stop thinking about her sultry smile and captivating eyes, but what draws him most is the sharp mind she reveals—and the certainty she's hiding something.
When Lucas learns the scandalous truth, Diana will have to make a life-and-death choice.
After being on a psychological thriller and YA book reading surge, I was in need of a good historical romance to switch it up and refresh my mind. And after quickly getting through the first 20% of this book, I knew I had made the right decision! This really was WICKED and it was so well done. There was a perfect blend of love, lust, heartache, and realism that could tie into anyone’s modern world. I LOVED Diana. She was such a no-f’s given seductress (and total badass) when she was playing her part but underneath it all, she was the most innocent and gentle soul. I also found myself being hopelessly charmed by Lucas and just absolutely loving Harrow for his caring and kindness.
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
