Crawford is ‘on the shelf’ despite her fortune and status.
She’s a proper Victorian lady struggling to keep her
thoughts pure, although she becomes overheated whenever her
neighbor, Dr. Sean Henry, pays a visit. A tight corset and
excitement increase her fainting spells, and when she
succumbs to another bout, she wakes up to find out she is in
quite a predicament. Is the handsome Irish doctor a beast
or the man she’s always dreamed of?
is harboring more than his fair share of secrets. His
feelings for Claire ensure that he is a danger. This means
he requires the assistance of his licentious valet and his
anxious partner to help keep her safe from the sex hungry
fiend residing within him.
What’s a man to do when underneath his civilized veneer a
ravening beast claws its way to the surface, hungry for
sexual excess? All the answers to this single, loaded
question are answered in Wicked Comes the Beast
with humor, panache, heat and daring. Mimi Riser engages
the fancy while blatantly making fun of Victorian mores,
literature, and anything else that deserves a jab—other than
the heroine by the randy hero. I liked this story and her
writing style so well that the next step is to read more of
her work. Readers who can appreciate her risqué
observations and raunchy sense of fun should dive right in.
This author has a witty and wicked way with words that is
sure to please and win over new fans.
