Her breathless kiss haunts him...
Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed--until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive.

His slow, hot touch is irresistible...
Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. It's rumored that no one can tempt Bowen's hardened heart, but soon passion burns between them. Though a future together is impossible, she fears he has no intention of letting her go.

No deed is too wicked for her seduction...
If they defeat the evil that surrounds them, can Mari deny Bowen when he demands her body and soul--or will she risk everything for her fierce protector?

I loved this series!! Wicked Deeds starts with us seeing some of the later scenes in No Rest of the Wicked during the end of the Hide but through Bowe’s eyes. We see why the little witch cursed him and how they spent their time at the end of the game.

Both Bowe and Mariketa spent weeks locked up in separate caves vowing to kill the other for what they had done to each other. But once Bowe gets free and learns that Mari is still trapped and in danger all he can think about it getting to her to save her.

During a long trip in the jungle to get Mariketa to home and safety, the two get to know each other and have a hard time fighting their growing attraction. Bowe thinks that Mari has hexed him into thinking she is his mate but she can’t say for 100% that she didn’t. They both go through the emotional ringer trying to figure things out and reliving their pasts. And in true lykae form, Bowe is a sexy male with a caveman attitude. He hates witches and believes that they practice magic by choice and tries to force Mariketa into giving up magic.

After many life and death ordeals the two finally get their HEA. And let me tell Cole really knows how to build the sexual tension and when Bowe and Mariketa finally do the deed, man it’s HAWT. Sigh, if only I could find my own lykae caveman to pass the winter nights with.

Favorite Quote:
“Double, double toil and trouble mother fuckers, you just got cursed.”

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  2. I liked this one but it was probably my least favorite of the MacRieve books. Loved Bowe but I realize now that I like Mariketa as more of a side character.

  3. I looove this series too! Great review – I love the idea of the entire series. I’ve devoured each and every one of them. Hope you get a chance to read the rest of the series, they are all excellent!
