With everything you love about historical romance, Wicked Intentions is a great kickoff to the Maiden Lane Series.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a historical romance
  • If you’re a fan of a come-back story in your romance
  • If you like Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas,  and Mary Balogh

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall
  • 4/5 steaminess


The first of the Maiden Lane Series, Wicked Intentions  is slightly dark, slightly  wicked and passionate. Temperance runs a orphanage with her brother in St. Giles, one of the worst areas of London. She meets Lord Caire, who’s notorious for his wicked desires, and is searching for a savage killer. The two challenge each other constantly in their quest for a killer and their own redemption.

I actually read Wicked Intentions after several other Elizabeth Hoyt books – it was easily the darkest, most graphic of any of them.  After reading a series of Elizabeth Hoyt books recently, she’s easily in my top 10 favorite historical romance authors. Each book has a unique plots, but always includes what I love about historical romance – witty characters, come-back stories and overcoming the odds. And bonus: If you like this book, you’ll have a slew of other Maiden Series books to pick from. Shop all Elizabeth Hoyt Maiden Series on Amazon.
