Twice as Wicked
Wicked Secrets #1
By Elizabeth Bright
Releasing October 9th, 2017
Entangled Publishing

In Twice as Wicked (Wicked Secrets #1) by Elizabeth Bright, Alice Bursnell loved her twin sister so much, and now that she's gone Alice is determined to make sure the man that seduced her pays for taking advantage of Adelaide. However, it seems Alice may have set her sights on the wrong guy. Will Alice be able to convince Nathaniel Eastwood to help her get revenge or will his need to protect his family keep them apart?

The revenge trope when it's mixed with the mistaken identity trope in a story, as the two are in this book makes for an enthralling and wonderful read from start to finish. Not only because Alice would do anything for her twin sister, a sister that she's devastated by the loss of; but because this book offered a good dose of intrigue and wonderful chemistry between this couple that had me determined to discover what Nathaniel and Alice would go through on their journey to happy ever after. Will Alice reveal the truth behind her desire to always be around Nathaniel? Will the hero be able to put his trust in the heroine when it's not easy for him to trust people?  

As for the dialogue, it was compelling and I loved every moment the hero and heroine conversed, especially the moment when they first met that has Alice coming to the hero's rescue. Will she confront the hero straight away and see what he knows about her twin sister? Moreover, the heroine was resilient, courageous and I liked how determined she was to do right by her sister. I also liked how far she was willing to go to get revenge, even knowing that it could ruin her growing relationship with Nathaniel once he learnt the truth. Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was how loyal she was to her sister and that she would do anything for her in life and death. While the hero, he's had it tough with not being able to trust his own twin brother, yet it's understandable why he wants to protect the man that he should be closest to. I also liked how determined the hero was to win the heroine over once he believed he could trust her.

Overall, this is a fantastic first book for this series where the secondary characters have me wanting to know more about them; the chemistry between this couple was captivating and had me hoping that the hero would give the heroine a chance sooner rather than later; and the ending had me surprised by what happened between Nathaniel and his twin brother and the trouble the heroine gets herself into with a bad guy because revenge was more important to her than anything. Will Nathaniel be able to protect her? I would recommend Twice as Wicked by Elizabeth Bright, if you enjoy historical romance, the revenge trope or books by authors Robyn DeHart, Lily Maxton, Sara Portman and Stacy Reid.

Miss Alice Bursnell is determined to wreak revenge on Nathaniel Eastwood, Viscount Abingdon, for the seduction, ruin, and death of her beloved twin sister. But how to expose a seducer without falling prey herself? As she gets closer to Nathaniel, she finds she is in serious danger of following in her sister’s much-too-tempted footsteps. The man is nothing like the heartless rake she expected...and his kisses are truly divine. Could she be wrong about him?

When a mysterious and gorgeous woman confronts Nathaniel at a fancy ball, he suspects she has murder on her mind—his own. But the more he tries to determine who the deceptively innocent beauty is—and what she’s up to—the deeper he falls under her alluring spell. Nathaniel fears he’s in imminent danger of losing his life...or worse, his heart.
