He put her on a pedestal…

When Celeste Gray arrives in the sleepy village of Brixcombe-on-the-Bay, she thinks she’s one step closer to leaving her notorious past behind. She even suspects the deliciously handsome—if somewhat stuffy—viscount next door is developing a tendre for her. That is, until the day Ashlin Lancester learns she’s not the unassuming spinster she’s pretending to be.

Now she has farther to fall

After a decade of proving he is nothing like his profligate father, Ash is horrified to have given his heart to a Cyprian. He launches a campaign to prove his attraction is nothing more than a sordid reaction he can’t control. But he soon learns that unlike his father, he can’t find comfort in the arms of just any woman. He needs Celeste. When he takes her as his mistress, he’s still not satisfied, and the many late nights in her arms only make him want more…

Reviews:Lisa on Rogues Under the Covers wrote:

"...A fun, heated, romantic story about hope, family and love and...a wonderful set up to what looks to be a very promising series."

Delilah Marvelle, USA Today Bestselling Author wrote:

"Romantic, witty and delicious."

on The Historical Romance Critic:

"Well written book, with an intelligently humorous edge to the narration" and "emotional undercurrents...that make The Trouble with Being Wicked truly exceptional."

on Love Saves the World:

"Reading [Locke's] debut novel was a revelation: a fresh voice, a daring perspective and the brassiest, sassiest heroines I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Add to that well-written and very thoughtful storylines, and what you get is insta-love."

The Trouble with Being Wicked is the first novel in my Scandalous Spinsters series, featuring Celeste Gray and Ashlin Lancaster, Lord Trestin. When these two opposites fall in love, it's anything but uncomplicated.
