Publisher's Summary

England, 1813. Damon de Wolfe, the sixth marquess of Morninghall (a Romantic Times K.I.S.S. Hero of the Year nominee), is dark, diabolical, and very, very dangerous. Tortured by his past and driven by his desire for revenge, the former naval hero has fallen from grace after infuriating his superiors. Now seething with anger in his lowly role of prison ship commander, he has locked away his brutal childhood memories and allows no one into his world. When beautiful and independent social reformer Lady Gwyneth Evans Simms dares to clash with him over mistreated prisoners, she unwittingly throws herself into the most perilous fight of her life. And Damon embarks on a journey of healing and discovery as the lovely widow seeks to exorcise the demons haunting his very soul through lessons in love.
A gripping and emotional Beauty and the Beast tale by best-selling, multi-award-winning author Danelle Harmon (author of the De Montforte Brothers series).

Good story

I really liked this book. Danelle Harmon writes some of my favorite books.

The characters are wonderful. Damon is hard-edged. He is "diabolical" as Gwyneth says. They clash over the treatment of prisoners on the hulk that Damon commands. Gwyneth is a strong woman and that's one of the things I like about Harmon's books.

The story kept me totally interested. The narrator was a bit distracting. I didn't care for the way he portrayed Gwyneth. That was the thing that kept me from rating this higher.

Great Story, Great Narration, Wonderful Pace!

What made the experience of listening to Wicked at Heart the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a fantastic job. Farrell took Harmon's book and brought it to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved all of the characters, but my favorite was Damon's character was my favorite. He was a man demonized by tormented memories from his childhood, which I guess would be similar to what we would today refer to PTSD. Damon's response to this was to continually refer to a medical dictionary to deal with each of his 'symptoms' (maybe some sort of panic disorder). Until he meets the lovely and very determined Lady Simms, his life seems on an empty course. His determination to beat Mrs. Simms leads him on a course to instead, follow her lead of charity. Unfortunately for both of them, Damon had made enemies along the way - chief among them the father of the son he had killed. Lady Simms and Damon both end up in a fight for their lives.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene where they are finally on his bed and succumb to passion and the men rush in to attack. That was really well done. It was passionate, but the attack was frightening, and well narrated.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot in the book - and could feel other sad emotions. But it Danelle Harmon writes so well, that she elicits all emotions.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend.
