“Wicked Loving Lies” by Rosemary Rogers

Back of the Book:

In the sweeping tradition of Sweet Savage Love, New York Times bestselling author Rosemary Rogers takes readers on an epic journey that spans continents and explores the depths of human passions.

Born of scandal and denied his birthright, Dominic Challenger took to the sea, charting his own future. A true rogue, Dominic answers to no one, trusting only himself. Until Marisa.

Born of wealth and privilege, Marisa is a prisoner to her father’s expectations. When the sanctuary she has found behind the walls of a convent is threatened by the news that her father has arranged for her to marry, Marisa flees…right into the arms of a pirate.

From the safety of a sheltered convent to a sultan’s harem, from the opulence of Napoleon’s court to the wilds of the new frontier, Marisa and Dominic brave all that they encounter in this thrilling age: intrigue, captivity and danger. And above all, an enduring passion that ignites into an infinite love.

Karla’s Review on Goodreads.com:

Rape is bad, mmkay?

Bad in real life, but a fact of life in the old bodice rippers. If it’s something that bugs you, chances are the whole book would suffer from its inclusion and you’d probably be better off not bothering to read it. Especially a book like this one, where rape occurs multiple times (and mainly by the hero). (read her entire review here)

[xrr rating=4.5/5]

The very worst thing about this book, for me, was that I knew it was supposed to be part of the Ginny and Steve saga, but they werent’ anywhere in the book and I was soo confused! I was constantly stopping to double check websites to make sure that I had the correct book. I’m sure that the stop and go reading in addition to the distraction caused by my confusion took away from some of my reading experience. :-(

The very best thing about this book is that it is entertaining, interesting, and shocking through to the end. :-D
