I suppose I should’ve guessed from the cover this was going to be a bit alternative. But always game to try out a new Regency author, I gave it a whirl.
Wicked Mourning is a novella. Thirty minute read tops. And the action starts almost from page one.
And I do mean action.
Apparently Heather Boyd is an erotic Regency author who fills almost every page with white hot action.
The plot is cute, but minimal, and the only thing really Regency about it are some brief nods to clothing styles and setting.
If you are looking for a quickie, check it out. You will not be disappointed. Although I should add the heroine (I say that loosely given the short length and minimal character development) is about seven months pregnant, which might be a turn off to some.
(3.5 out of 5) Its good for what it is. Well written and juicy action.
