After her father's death Colette Hamilton is left with four sisters an invalid mother and a failing bookshop The only way she can save the family business is with her unconventional ideasor let her uncle marry her off As for the handsome stranger in her books. After reading and enjoying O Riley s One Sinful Night I was disappointed by this mediocre storyWhen His Kiss Is Wicked is a historical set in the Victorian period and tells the romance between a feisty bookshop keeper and a marriage minded heir to a maruisate Colette Hamilton has taken over managing the family s bookshop after her father s death six months before the book opens Her Uncle Randall would much prefer she and her sister marry money and abandon the bookshop as he resents that the family is involved in trade Lucien Sinclair the Earl of Waverly meets Colette when he visits the bookshop to find reading material for his invalid father Sparks fly between the feisty proto feminist and the traditionalist aristocrat and the attraction grows as they run into each other at Society events Lucien however is determined to marry a boring biddable wife no matter how much Colette appeals to himOne of the first flaws to smack me in the face is that O Reilly absolutely MANGLES the English peerage She gives an illegitimate son a courtesy title Lord Jeffery Eddington and then mangles it further by referring to him as Lord Eddington There were many other examples but as Eddington was a major secondary character this was the most glaring The lack of basic research made immersing myself in the story rather difficultIn addition she uses modern language and ideas in what is supposed to be a historical I can buy that a woman could run a bookshop but not that she wouldn t sell the business after marriage or that she would expect people to find her behavior totally acceptable I was rather bruised from being beaten over the head with the feminist overtones I know it s tempting to put modern ideas in play but Colette was a walking anachronismCharacterization was poor as well O Reilly made the mistake of telling rather than showing We re told Eddington is uite charming but she wrote little dialog that let the reader see him as such I saw very little of people s inner workings via POV musings Characters felt flat and one dimensionalThe plot did a poor job of making me wait I freely admit that I am a poor plot prognosticator You show me a mystery and I ll show you a shocked face every time the culprit is revealed Yet I guessed every plot twist before it happened If you can t fool me ay yi yiAs a result of the flat characterization and total lack of tension I was completely bored by this book nearly abandoning it at page 100 Highly disappointing considering how much I enjoyed her earlier book I hope this was merely a speed bump in her career as she s clearly capable of better work

    I would probably say 3 12 The reasons for their not being together were a bit weak But it was the first in a new series for the author I think that firsts always suffer We got a lot of background on the other 4 sisters that will be written about I will look for the next one because the two characters were definitely interesting in the first one

    355I love me a cheesy romance And this was a very satisfying read but there were just something's that made it so I could not give this book five starsFor one I enjoy stories about pretty girls as much as the next girl but when the woman is so unimaginably beautiful that every man flips out I just don't enjoy it as much I like the romance with the wallflower probably because I relate to them better I did however really enjoy Co
