About The Book:
Vivienne knows the dark secrets of London’s desires. She fulfills them, twisting men’s lust for her into the power and status of a courtesan. But she understands little about her own pleasure and the mysteries it commands. Until, that is, she meets Heath, a vampire capable of giving her profound ecstasy—but sworn to let her taste its release only once…

Heath’s cravings for Vivienne sharpen into sweet torture as he guides her through erotic lessons, watching her abandon herself to ever-higher peaks of pleasure. As temptation melts away the bonds of his control, how long can either hope to survive?

The Review:
Vivienne Dare may be retired from being a courtesan but she needs money to pay for her child’s medicine, and using her body is all she knows. Yet when she is told to sleep with Lord Heath Winthrop she is afraid that one night will not be enough. Vivienne soon finds herself in the midst of Heath’s investigation in finding his missing brother. What will Heath find and what will Vivienne take away from their relationship? Only they can know for sure.

This is regency paranormal. I don’t read regency much but was pleasantly surprised with Vivienne and Heath’s story. As a mother myself, I understand Vivienne using all that she can to save her child. Heath may come off as mean but we find that he has a big heart underneath it all. They make a powerful couple. This author does a wonderful job of mixing the paranormal with romance and magic. Blood Wicked is a story filled with many twists and turns that take the reader on a fast paced and entertaining ride.
