the plot along at a brisk pace Hunter s love scenes are tasteful and full of passion Overall, A Wicked Lord at the Wedding, is a wicked delight to read It was better than I had hoped.I am always wary when it comes to re uniting estranged husbands and wives This was good Sebastien was both reasonable and deliciously possessive of his wife.Eleanor is a little annoying on the one hand she got out and did things when her husband deserted her for 6 years on the other hand as ridiculously demanding as Sebastien was over her Masquer ing, but he was right about the danger On the other hand she chose to become a spy not champion charities or somethin It was better than I had hoped.I am always wary when it comes to re uniting estranged husbands and wives This was good Sebastien was both reasonable and

Sebastien was over her Masquer ing, but he was right about the danger On the other hand she chose to become a spy not champion charities or something normal for a 19th century Lady.Both of the couple were good to read, neither making bone headed decisions to hate the other because of the past without Eleanor falling straight back into love The story was also good, I could believe the Duchess of Wellington was spy master for steering the ton, I doubt she was, but it was believably portrayed.I recommend for people who like the estranged couple theme to try Passions of a Wicked Earl The writing style seemed to drag at times and I found myself re reading sections trying to follow the writer s train of thought Throughout the book, it mentioned how the hero suffered some complications from a war injury, but never elaborated enough to help understand his condition or how it was truly affecting him I was also confused about what he did exactly in the years he had disappeared from his wife s life andbackground given would have been helpful Of course, this is book eight i The writing style seemed to drag at times and I found myself re reading sections trying to follow the writer s train of

book first, the previous books may provide the missing information I needed to understand this hero better The storyline itself was rather dull I have the other books in the series marked to read, but they will not be a high priority I have since read a few of the books that came before this book and having re read this book, it was better the 2nd time around
