Book Description

24 Nov 2006
A penniless rake with a penchant for gambling, Rutherford Hawksley has friends in places both high and low - essential to his search for his brother's murder. Ruthless in his quest, Rutherford discovers a nobleman who he suspects is trying to kill a woman travelling to London. A woman with information Hawksley would very much like to know. But his simple plan of abduction goes awry when he plucks the not-so-simple Miss Clara Dawson from her coach. Hawksley is used to his startling blue eyes charming ladies into submission, yet Clara's spirit and intelligence prove quite the match for him. And soon he can think of nothing more pleasurable than keeping this rare bird in his not-so-gilded cage, where he can pick her intriguing mind, enjoy her exquisite body-and teach her more about desire than she ever dreamed possible.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Its not often that i stop and think ' im really enjoying this' in the first few chapters of a book but i constantly found myself thinking this as i read 'some like it sinful'. I think what made the age old plot of a handsome nobleman holding up a choach carrying a beautiful young woman so original was the characterisation. I really like Clara.Whereas other authors constantly tell us how intelligent a heroine is and then the heroine goes and does the complete opposite, we see for ourselves how level headed Clara is. She is cool and calm and she doesnt panic and constantly whine to be released by Hawksley. She actually offers to help him find the information he seeks as she very quickly realises he means her no harm and wishes to find his brothers murderer.As for the hero. i loved the way he respected the heroines intellect and actually seeks her help when he finds out her skills in problem solving - at no point does he belittle or underestimate her abilities.Clara isnt the type of heroine that constantly needs saving, she actually comes to the rescue in causing a needed diversion at one point.

They made such a lovely couple and i liked the way they were honest about their feelings for each other.It was nice to see the gradual progression from admiration, to affection and friendship and finally falling in love. The dialogue was fresh and lively, and the story moved quickly. I really like the supporting characters as they were well developed and very likable.

The only thing that stopped me from giving this a 5 star review was that fact i felt that it ended quite abruptly, i think it would have benifeted from an epilogue maybe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensual Summer Read. 29 July 2006
By Beverly Romance Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Deborah Raleigh captivates historical romance readers in this second of the "Some Like It..." series with the handsome and dangerous Rutherford Hawksley and the spirited, beautiful, and intelligent Clara Dawson. Clara, left alone after her father's death finds comfort in a pen pal mathmatical equation relationship with a certain Mr. Chesterfield, not knowing that this relationship is to bring her danger and into the arms of the wickedly handsome Hawksley. She doesn't stand a chance with this tall, dark, handsome stranger the moment she looks into his dark blue eyes. But neither does Hawksley, as the beautiful Clara, as beautiful inside as out, rescues him from a life of loneliness and abuse from his aristocratic upbringing. They are drawn to each other from the moment Hawksley saves her from attempted murder and together they work to solve the murder of his older brother. Biddles and Anna are back from the first book, and the sexy Santos. As a fan of the sensual historical romance, this book did not disappoint. It is sinfully delicious, but I was left wanting more, which is why I give it 4 Stars. It would have been wonderful to complete the story and the relationship after Clara and Hawksley's marriage and their acceptance into "The Ton." This story needs a sequel! Maybe the villians can return from the colonies? I look forward to the next in the Some Like It series coming in 2007,"Some Like It Brazen."

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 6 July 2006
By L. Glew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First time reading this author and I enjoyed this story enough to want to buy Some Like it Wicked and will buy Some Like it Brazen when it comes out.

Clara is a beauty but it's her brains that makes her special. Finally a story where the man needs a beautiful woman for her brains and not her money. Clara is kidnaped by Hawksley but he ends up needing her for her logic and ability to think thing through in finding his brother's killer.

I was a little disappointed in the ending with the way things were left with family and society. I hope their story continues in Some Like it Brazen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable romp! 4 Nov 2006
By Sarahjj - Published on Amazon.com
Loved it. Very believable and enjoyable story from start to finish. Real reactions, no writerly posturing, no stupid heroine doing stupid daring things to get the attention of the hero. I strongly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Mystery but the leads were a little boring 4 Dec 2008
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lacking interesting leads but with a decent plot, Some Like it Wicked is a fast moving story but the characters, especially the leads make this story rather mediocre. The hero was a bit of a mystery and the heroine lacked charm and I never really empathized with her throughout the novel.

Rutherford Hawksley saves heroine Clara Dawson from the vile hands of a nobleman he believes killed his brother. Supposedly Clara has information which said nobleman wants and then he intends to do away with her. Since Hawksley is trying to bring his brother's murderer to justice he stops Clara's coach and kidnaps her.

Clara is a spinsterish mathematician who is on her way to meet Mr. Chesterfield, a fellow mathematician in London. They have corresponded for over a year and now she gets the opportunity to meet someone as intelligent and logical as she is. The author painstakingly lets the reader know how smart Clara is, she is so observant, so smart, so rational. She is not emotional at all, playing into the stereotype that mathematicians are rather colorless. (My math teacher friends would disagree with this and I would too. These ladies are vibrant and funny.) Clara is also demanding. In fact I noticed that the author actually used the word demanded whenever Clara asked a question.

Hawksley finds Clara beautiful and she is a total breath of fresh air. Seems Hawksley must love to bed stupid girls and Clara's braininess is unexpected. Clara hears Hawksley's reasoning behind her kidnapping, logically goes along with his plan then sets about to help him in his quest. This is one area where I did admire Clara's reasoning skills, she knew how to listen.

Hawksley has a wicked past, he is shunned by his family, but I never saw it in the present nor was it revealed too much in his past. He seems rather normal. His friends are more interesting than he is.

Clara who is the rational one behaves with little emotion until the end of the novel then she throws caution to the wind when she is angry with Hawksley. I had a hard time believing it was the same character (she never even screamed when Hawkley abducted her earlier in the novel, but later walks right into danger).

What makes this novel memorable were the secondary characters, they are mysterious and have just a touch of the bad boy. The mystery was pretty good and even genius Clara did not figure out the whodunit until the end.
4.0 out of 5 stars A fun quick read and I can see why it's addictive 28 Dec 2013
By kevin Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the first romance novel I ever read and I enjoyed it. It was a fun quick read and I can see why they're addictive. It's amusing to see how the author has to get around saying "penis". These books are about lust and passion and everyone could use more of those in life.
