A wickedly wonderful new romance from the New York Timesbestselling author of His Wicked Reputation
Most women will give him anything he wants. She is not most women… 

As a well-known barrister and the son of a duke, Ives confines his passionate impulses to discreet affairs with worldly mistresses. A twist of fate, however, has him looking for a new lover right when a fascinating woman shows up in his chambers, asking him to help save her father from the gallows. Unfortunately, he has already been asked to serve as the prosecutor in the case, but that only ensures close encounters with the rarity named Padua Belvoir. And every encounter increases his desire to tutor her in pleasure’s wicked ways…

Having always been too tall, too willful, and too smart to appeal to men, Padua Belvoir is shocked when Ives shows interest in her. Knowing his penchant for helping the wrongly accused, she had initially thought he might be her father’s best hope for salvation. Instead, he is her worst adversary—not least because every time he looks at her, she is tempted to give him anything he wants…

 #2 in the “Wicked Trilogy”, but can be read as a stand alone. I would also recommend reading Book 1, “His Wicked Reputation”. Once again, Ms. Hunter has written a seductive, intriguing tale with passion, romance,a bit of danger, some mystery, a bit of suspense and lots of love. Well written tale with engaging, passionate, and lovable characters. I enjoyed the interaction between the H/H, how the family sticks together no matter the circumstances or the conquestances.
Fast paced tale with plenty of action, adventure, romance and passion. Wickedly seductive! Once again, Ms. Hunter will mesmerize her fans with “Tall, Dark and Wicked”. Highly recommended. Fans of Regency Historical Romance, suspense, mystery and finding a HEA will enjoy this tale. I certainly did and I look forward to the next installment. Another awesome read!
