Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt
A man controlled by his desires…
Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London’s most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand— she’s spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk.
A woman haunted by her past…
Caire makes a simple offer—in return for Temperance’s help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London’s high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control—one that may well destroy them both.
A bargain neither could refuse.
My review 2 out of 5 stars
I was kind of annoyed with the main characters. Lord Caire was a dick to everyone, but especially Temperance. He spoke constantly about wanting to break her and he even said things like “soothe away the hurt and then hurt her again.” Really?
Temperance was annoying in a different way. She was so good. Too good. She was so self sacrificing to a point of stupidity.
The plot was good, however Lord Caire kept claiming not to care about the murderer so much that I stopped caring as well. I liked the secondary characters. Winter was interesting. I want to know how he got injured. I also want to know what happens with Silence. I hope her husband drowns or something. I like the ghost of St. Giles guy, let’s get his book going.
I may check out the next one in the series. I just hated the main characters of this book.
