If He's Wicked (Wherlocke, #1)If He's Wicked by Hannah Howell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If He's Wicked by Hannah Howell is a 2009 Zebra publication.

This is the first in the popular Wherlocke series by Hannah Howell, the author of many prolific Scottish and paranormal historical romance novels.

This is one of those series I have been wanting to get into for a long time, but never got around to it. I finally picked up this first book and am so glad I made time for it. This is an excellent beginning and I truly enjoyed the mystery suspense elements.

Julian is a man who is very opposed to ever entering into matrimony again, and how could you blame him with a wife like Beatrice? But, with the beautiful Chloe Wherlocke nursing him back to health, and with her raising the son he did not know he had, Julian finds himself feeling very drawn to her.

Chloe, has special 'gifts' and is very adamant about marrying for love, because in her family, those who did not were seemingly cursed. But, when she and Julian are found in a compromising position, she isn't give much of a choice. She will have to settle for fondness, for being close to the child she loves as her own, and great passion, but... no love. Will Julian and Chloe fall victim to the curse? Will Julian survive the attempts on his life?

This was an enjoyable historical romance, with suspense, and a light paranormal tone, infused with humor and a well rounded cast of secondary characters.

I can't wait to dive into the second book of the series!
