Book Description

A new Notorious Bachelors novel from Emma Wildes

When blackmail turns to murder, Madeline May turns to the notorious Viscount Altea, a man used to dealing with men of ill repute, and a man she despises with every fiber of her being.

From the very moment of their first meeting-and one unforgettable night of passion-Luke Daudet knew she was different. And when he received her fateful entreaty, he knew he would not be able to stay away...

By Dr B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two people who have lost their loves are faced with blackmail and intrigue, but have the support of their friends. Despite some heart-searching, they find a way to combat these challenges together, but this togetherness causes further issues. Will they be brave enough to risk their hearts again?

This is an enjoyable romance and action story, with good, rounded characters and accurate period detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could think up these set-ups! 8 Nov. 2010
By Need me some tunes - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lady Madeline has a small problem--she's just killed a man who tried to blackmail AND rape her--so she turns to Our Hero, a fellow with whom she shared a memorable one nighter a year ago. She doesn't like that he pulled a love 'em and leave 'em, she doesn't like that she hasn't been able to forget him, and she doesn't like that of all the people she knows--despite the foregoing--he's the one man she can trust to protect her in her hour of distress. And as for her hour of need... The signature Wildes heat does not disappoint, the plot has some wonderful twists, and the character's motivations regarding their growing physical and emotional intimacy are credible and well written. A real pleasure to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unable to Finish 19 Oct. 2010
By lovesbooks - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I tried, I really did, to finish "Our Wicked Mistake," thinking that if I just read a few more pages, it'd get more interesting. The characters are flat, indistinct, boring. Emma Wildes tries to ratchet up the suspense, but that doesn't work, mainly because the villain is not explored much. In the first 132 pages (as far as I got), we know that he has tried to blackmail the heroine and he has a brief scene where he makes sexually speculating comments about her to the hero. The second problem is that the other characters are vague and forgettable too. If you DO buy this, I hope you like it more than I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the secondary love story 7 Nov. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Luke Daudet is very attracted to Madeline May but will not allow himself to love her because of the tragic death of his first wife and child. Against his better judgement he allows himself to be seduced into an affair with Madeline. It is not until he nearly loses Madeline that he realises he cannot live without love. But by it too late..?!

I have said it before...the trend with Emma Wildes' books is that I adore the secondary romance but find the main romance pretty average...this is the case with this book. The story of Elizabeth, the sister of Luke, who realises she loves her childhood friend, Miles, is sweet and passionate. In contrast, the story of Luke and Madeline is unbelievable. For the life of me, I just cannot believe that Madeline would be prepared to be ruined by an open affair with Luke. The story is just about sex...there is no connection or feeling of love despite the melodramatic conclusion to the story.

I would recommend this book, mostly because of Elizabeth and Miles, and I like this series, but it is not keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked 19 Nov. 2010
By Sharon A. Unicomb - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed Emma Wildes previous books and this one does not let you down it is alittle bit wicked and the story is also intriging as you not only have romance but also you get caught up in trying to solve the mystery I also found myself barracking for our hero as he tries to get his lady , if you read My Lord Scandle then this is a must read

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd in Regency Romance Series better than the first! 8 Nov. 2010
By Regan - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second in the Notorious Bachelors series (the first was My Lord Scandal and the last is His Sinful Secret). I have read all three and believe she got better as she wrote each one. Each tells the tale of a one of three friends who are committed ladies' men or rakes and committed bachelors--and how they become married men. This second one tells the story of Madeline May, Lady Brewer, a 26 year old widow and single mother, who is ready to come out of her boring life and decides the only man who interests her is the delectable Luke Daudet, Viscount Altea, who was the only man since her husband she succumbed to and who dropped her like a hot rock after one night of amazing lovemaking. But Luke has his own issues and is afraid of his feelings for the beautiful widow he calls Madge and so he's avoided her for a year. But now she is in trouble and knows the only may she can trust to handle it is Luke. Once they are together again, neither can resist the other but since Luke is not interested in marriage, Lady Brewer compromises and becomes his mistress. But as time goes on, he becomes less happy with that arrangement. There is a secondary romance her of between Luke's sister and her childhood pal who is now a handsome man in love with her. All in all, I really enjoyed this one, the characters and their antics and the way she drew a rake to the woman he can't resist. I definitely recommend it.
