REVIEW: Too Wicked to Kiss by Erica Ridley

44411010From the back of the book:


From the ravens circling its spires to the gargoyles adorning its roof, Blackberry Manor looms ominously over its rambling grounds. And behind its doors, amid the flickering shadows and secret passageways, danger lies in wait…


Evangeline Pemberton has been invited to a party at the sprawling estate of reclusive Gavin Lioncroft, who is rumored to have murdered his parents. Initially, Gavin’s towering presence and brusque manner instill fear in Evangeline…until his rakish features and seductive attentions profoundly arouse her. But when a guest is murdered, Evangeline is torn. Could the man to whom she is so powerfully drawn, also be a ruthless killer.

This is a debut book by a fantastic new author. I absolutely loved the feel of this book. I don’t normal seek out Gothic romance, but I will after reading this book. The reader is introduced to a variety of characters, not many who are likable. Evangeline isn’t your usual Gothic heroine. She is tough and knows what she wants out of life. She runs away from home to escape her stepfather and doesn’t look back. I absolutely loved her drive. Gavin is your typical brooding hero and I loved him from the first moment. There is so much more to him than it seems at first. His past has left him very lonely and he believes himself to be unlovable. These two match each other so well. Besides the main characters I really liked Susan, Evangeline’s friend, who is out to catch the eye of Gavin even though she doesn’t really care for him. I can’t wait to read her story. This book is a terrific read from an author who will be an auto-buy from now on.

the book girl gives TOO WICKED TO KISS a 5/5!
