About this ebook

She was his savior

Banished from London for her reckless behavior, Lady Miranda Sinclair is robbed by a dashing highwayman en route to the country. By offering him a kiss in lieu of the jewels she had to leave behind, she commits the very type of act that caused her exile. When her dour guardians extend her punishment to performing charitable work at the local orphanage, she’s further tempted by the home’s owner, a provincial gentleman who stirs her passion in a most wicked way.

He was her downfall

Desperate to save his orphanage from financial catastrophe, Montgomery "Fox" Foxcroft leads a double life as a highwayman. The arrival of wealthy, well-connected Miranda, whose kiss he can’t forget, presents a lawful opportunity to increase his coffers. His problems seem solved—until she rejects his suit. Out of options and falling for the heiress, Fox must risk what principles he has left and take advantage of her wicked ways—even if it ruins them both.

I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end - it had a refreshing new twist to a historical romance read. The characters were very engaging & really drew you in to the life at the orphanage. Miranda was an interesting person & I loved the transformation from selfish society lady to a person that deeply cared for the children & would do anything to help their cause. Fox, well what can you say, he was handsome, witty, clever, & willing to do what ever it took to save the orphanage & win Miranda. I can't wait to read the next book & I highly recommend this one to all Historical Romance readers!

Story of a reckless lady and a ne'er do well gent. I enjoyed the interaction between Lady Miranda and Fox. Two people who are a lot alike, but separated due to class. Ms. Burke's story is humorously entertaining and heartwarming. Her Wicked Ways for me proved to be such an enjoyable journey that I purchased To Love a Thief. Can't wait to read it.

Good writing. Unfortunately there are various scenes and happenings that are just not believable, especially in the time period. The main character is supposed to be a"good" person, however he does things that are certainly not good. Fortunately the second book is quite better.
