Her breathless kiss haunts him...

Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed -- until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive.

His slow, hot touch is irresistible...

Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. It's rumored that no one can tempt Bowen's hardened heart, but soon passion burns between them. Though a future together is impossible, she fears he has no intention of letting her go.

No deed is too wicked for her seduction...

If they defeat the evil that surrounds them, can Mari deny Bowen when he demands her body and soul -- or will she risk everything for her fierce protector?


My review

Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night – an epic love story between a witch and a werewolf. Except, we have Bowen a 1200 year old ruthless warrior, who lost his mate some 200 years ago and is seething with self pity, and a young, only 23 years old Mariketa, who is not even an immortal yet. Plus add her lack of control over her magic and his hatred for the witches, and we’ll have a pretty spicy stew.

While it’s not required to read the first two books (A Hunger Like No Other and No Rest for the Wicked), I still recommend it. You’ll be more acquainted with the underlying plot and the characters. Thus said, it is only fair to warn that while the book has its moments, it has its drawbacks either.

I found the interactions between Bowen and Mari interesting, flirty even, but the whole ‘I want him/ I hate him’ and ‘I want her/ but I want my mate Mariah’ struggles started to annoy me.

I enjoyed the twists in the book and the way the author solved the problem with two mates, but the beginning of the story was very slow, sometimes even on the edge of boring. And what does it say about the book, when the short appearance of the secondary character gets me hooked up more than the heroes do?

I am talking about Nix, by the way, who always manages to keep me on the tips of my toes as well as on the edge of the chair. She’s amazing. Hope she will get her own book one day soon. Cause the way she twists everything by her likening is unbelievable. It will truly require someone special to claim her. But I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Apparently, I got sidetracked. Well, it’s hard not to when Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night is so controversial. I guess you’ll have to read to find out if it’s good or not, cause I am still wavering between those two.
