Product Description

Product Description

Forbidden love is always a scandalous choice....

She raced across the pasture, vaulted a fence, and landed, stunned and breathless, on top of the most handsome man she had ever seen. The bemused stranger stayed to capture the fancy of the brood of orphaned children in her charge, then stole Lauren Hill's heart with a searing kiss as he left. Lauren couldn't tell him she was a widowed countess fallen on hard times. She tried to forget him--until she saw him again at a London ball. The man who haunted her dreams was a duke, out of her class...and he was pledged to another woman.

The ton is ablaze with talk of the ravishing Bavarian countess. Stunned, Alexander Christian, Duke of Sutherland, recognizes Lauren as the country girl who's captured his heart. Duty has forced him to pledge himself to another, to take his proper place in society and in Parliament. He wants one night with his blue-eyed enchantress, but will he be able to walk away from her again, or will he risk it all to be with the woman who fires his blood and makes him think of a . . . Wicked Angel.

From the Author

Wicked Angel is the sensual follow-up to The Devil's Love
Wicked Angel, my second book, follows the Duke of Sutherland, Alex Christian, a character I hope you met in The Devil's Love. In Wicked Angel, Alex--who is normally the soul of propriety--finds himself in an explosive predicament.

It begins when he is out hunting one day and is stunned by a young woman who hurls herself across a fence and lands on him. As the fog begins to clear, he sees the world's most angelic face above him. Lauren Hill, the recently widowed countess of Bergen, actually lands on him quite by accident...because he was smack-dab in the way of her frantic escape from an old, irate sow.

Naturally, the enchantment sparked by their unusual encounter flares. But there is one teeny, tiny problem...Alex is engaged to be married soon. Caught by an unearthly desire for an angel who makes his pulse race, his is in mortal trouble...

Whew! And exactly what is a duke supposed to do? I have a pretty good idea... You, on the other hand, will have to read the book to find out (hahaha)! But I really think you'll have a wonderful time if you do!

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming and engaging story 6 Aug 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoy Julia London's style of writing and I quite like the characters she creates. In Wicked Angel, the lead character Lauren Hill is poor, but quite beautiful and her uncle keeps trying to engineer a financially advantageous alliance, which he succeeds in doing by marrying her off to a very old man who is a Bavarian count, who dies a short time later, leaving his estate to Lauren. However, Lauren doesn't feel right about taking the property from Magnus, the counts nephew who should have inherited. The beginning of the book sees her being escorted back (again penniless) to Britain by her brother after the count dies and she resumes her life at Rosewood. Rosewood is falling apart and Lauren's uncle starts to engineer other potential alliances for Lauren that will help pay for Rosewood. Then there's Alex Christian, the Duke of Sutherland no less, who is weighed down under the pressure of his position and responsibilities and is engaged to a woman who he does not love and seems to be resigned to second best. He decides to escape to the country to find some peace and then chances to meet Lauren. Their meeting is written with humour and they fall for each other beautifully. Reality calls and Alex has to go back to London. They meet up again several months later and it is quite entertaining to see how Lauren reacts to Alex when she realises that he's a Duke...etc...etc., as of course, Alex never revealed who he really was. Some parts were funny and made you wince especially when she finds out who alex really is. I enjoyed the book, however in the end it dragged on a bit and wasn't as interesting as the first 3 quarters of the book. Still, it was a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angst-a-rama 4 Nov 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second Julia London book I've read, and angst is definitely her forte. The characters' every emotional agony is clear; fortunately so are their joys - otherwise things would be very gloomy!
I have to say that Ms London writes character-based books, so if you like an action-packed plot, her work probably isn't for you. Even for me the character-driven story is a bit much at times, especially towards the end when I just want the characters to get together. How many misunderstandings can there be between two people?! But then that's love, I guess.
There is a nice dash of originality in the plot, in the form of politics. It's nice to read an author who does more research than looking at 'The Illustrated History of Costume'.
One gripe: the title is a blatantly mismatch for the plot inside. Otherwise, 'Wicked Angel' is a rollercoaster of emotional turbulence, with all the graphic detail a romance junkie could want.

I wasn't sure Julia London could top The Devil's Love--boy was I wrong! The love story between Alex and Lauren unfolds with riveting emotional intensity. You feel every bit of what the hero and heroine feel, and when they find their happy ending you want to stand up and cheer! The secondary characters are complex as well, no simple villains here. Ms. London creates believable, empathetic people in a fashion that shows she has a keen understanding of human nature. Now where is Magnus' story???? You can't keep me hanging! Fantastic job Julia! Now you just need to write faster...

Good no surprise read. The characters away from the main players didn't have much depth, but still a book I would recommend. Perfect reading for when the nights start closing in.

Ms. London's descriptive phrases make you feel as if you were right there...at the ball, in the pumpkin field, or in Alex's arms. I've been reading historical romance for over 20 years, and Julia London is one of the best yet!!! This is a must read!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 14 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Julia London has done it again. She has made the characters of Alex and Lauren come alive. I laughed at Alex so many times - London has captured that uniquely male perspective on females head-on! Lauren is charming, witty, a bit bumbling at times, but always wants what's best for those she loves. It is refreshing to see real characters who grow and develop as you turn the pages. Eagerly awaiting the next release!

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY ORIGINAL BOOK 6 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book! First, Ms. London's writing style is head and shoulders above anyone I've read in the last couple of years. Her characters are so real they practically leap off the page and her humor is so smooth and subtle. But best of all, this story was truly original! Finally, someone with a fresh idea! I hope she is writing fast, because I can't wait for her next one. In the meantime, I can't wait to read Devil's Love.
