Taming the Wicked Wulfe by Tammy Jo Burns
Publication Date: July 14, 2014
SynopsisRebekah is forced into a proxy marriage to a man she despises for the sake of her orphaned niece and nephew. Her new husband, Thorn Wulfe, holds the key to all the secrets of her long-buried past.
Thorn, considered the Wicked Wulfe by many of the ton, operates one of London’s most notorious gaming hells, the Lady Luck. When his brother is killed, he finds his life turned upside down with a wife he does not want, and two children to care for.
When old secrets come to light and enemies make themselves known, Rebekah and Wulfe are going to have to decide what is more important…the past, the present, or the future? Will they be able to learn to trust and love one another along the way? Or will their secrets keep them apart forever?
I enjoyed this. Rebekah agrees to marry Thorn for the good of her niece and nephew, though she hates him for some unknown reason. She really is mean to him. Her reasons become clear later, and it makes sense. Thorn was really sweet, though, even though he's supposed to be this wicked, wild rake. There is more to him than is at first apparent and he is very patient with the wife he never wanted in the first place. Lots of steam between the two of them. There is also some danger, intrigue, and secrets. An enjoyable read.
My Rating: ****
