His Wicked Ways has a strong (but not obnoxious) heroine who is in no way ordinary, a back story which is compelling but doesn't get in the way of the love story, and of course a wonderful hero. Both the hero and the heroine have secrets of their own, which are slowly brought to light by the author, like layers being peeled from a (very good) onion. Meredith and Cameron were both wounded, intriguing, complex, wonderful characters. The action/suspense was fast-paced and thrilling. The setting was beautiful and exotic. The sex was HOT and perfect for the story. His Wicked Ways is a cut way above the typical historical romance. Wonderful love story, great characters with an emotionally scarred hero and strong but vulnerable heroine, unique setting, intriguing plot, edge-of-your-seat pacing, heart-tugging emotion, excellent writing, intense sensual love scenes, and a superb ending. This was just the kind of romance novel I love. Wonderful characters. Characters that seems real because they are not perfect-something most novels like this lack.
This book had everything you need to create a good romance: a dashing hero, a beautiful heroine and, most of all...PASSION! Samantha James developed Meredith and Cameron's personalities and motivations very convincingly, to the point where you feel as though you know them well enough to be friends by the time you finish the book. His Wicked Ways was an emotional roller coaster, and I felt all the pain and joy they did. I was so engrossed, I read it in a day. The love scenes are ample & steamy, and the plot is a good one. A fast paced book with an intricate plot that I cannot help but enjoy. His Wicked Ways is a cut way above the typical historical romance.
It's true that this books name is not very fitting. The hero is not wicked. But it still is a wonderful book. A sweet passionate love story. I wish my husband was more like Cameron.
