If He’s Wicked by Hannah Howell Reviewed By Bri Clark


If He’s Wicked by Hannah Howell


Book Review:

Chloe Wherlocke is an amazing character and Lord Julian Kenwood is a great match for her. For me I expected something much more paranormal than what was written. However, for the time period it was indeed extraordinary. Hannah Howell did such a fantastic job establishing the time that I forgot I was in 2011! The characters, even the supporting characters, all came together to form an intricate lattice work of the makings of a story that came to life. Loved it…truly loved it.

As an author, I find myself drawn to the male characters in the books I read and pen. Lord Julian is a character not unlike my own Lucien Lemoine. Both men are the supreme alpha males with people that depend on them for leadership, protection, and care. Both experience the most grievous of betrayals by someone in their Familial unit. Then while at their weakest and most vulnerable, the woman of their dreams saves them.

Book Blurb: She saves his life...For Chloe Wherlocke, it all begins with a vision - a glimpse into the future that foretells a terrible plot against Lord Julian Kenwood and his newborn son. Chloe's psychic gift allows her to save the child from certain death, but the earl remains in grave peril...But when he steals her heart...Julian Kenwood knows someone is trying to kill him and he suspects his scheming wife and her lover are behind the plot. But Julian is shocked when Chloe, a captivating, dark-haired stranger, warns him that sinister forces are indeed at hand - and exposes a devastating secret that changes his life forever...Will she resist - or surrender? As Chloe reveals her plan to save Julian, neither can deny the attraction that grows each moment they're together. Chloe knows the highborn earl could never love her as she loves him. But when danger strikes closer than ever, Chloe must risk everything - or lose Julian forever...

Lucien Lemione the clan leader of the feared and revered Eternals is faced with the ultimate betrayal. His second in command for two centuries has not only created the most grievous of offenses but also commissioned the creation of liquid silver. When poisoned by this toxin, an immortal suffers a fate much worse than death, frozen in an internal prison. After being wounded when found spying, he hides deep within the eerie woods that encircle the Triad Mountains. Desperate and in pain, he prays to an offended mother goddess for help. Her answer: a woman, but not just any woman. A witch.

After losing her entire coven at the hands of the Eternals, Aisleen is the last of her kind. She retreats from the world to Trinity Forest where she is giving the opportunity of a lifetime, or perhaps a test of principles. It’s there she discovers the man she heals is the Eternal that wiped out her people. Although she is bound as a healer, she could be creative in her revenge. Aisleen knows who and what Lucien is…but does not speak of it. There can be no future with Lucien for she can only be with a mortal man. Even if she wanted to be with him, can she forgive the man that caused the genocide of her people?

Lucien must act quickly for the survival of his clan is at stake. However, Aisleen’s ethereal beauty and emerald eyes keep pushing those thoughts far from his mind. Determined to find out what secret she hides, he prolongs his time with her. When his people need him most what will he choose…duty, desire, or will he make his own fate? You can choose love but you can’t choose destiny.
