The US has been having some crazy snow storms lately, which means between work, I’ve been reading and listening to books like crazy! I’ve also been adding more sweet romances to my collection, so I have books to recommend to fans of all heat spectrums.
Today, I want to talk about the short, sweet audiobook One Wicked Kiss by Dawn Brewer, narrated by Megan Green. This book is the perfect thing to top off a snow day.
- Genre: Historical Romance
- Story Rating: 5/6 Glass Slippers
- Narration Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
Natalia Benson’s father may have been a nobleman, but as his illegitimate daughter, she’s treated as no better than a maid. And when he tells her she’s to be married to an evil man who frightens her, she flees the only home she’s ever known. But a snowstorm derails her escape and she’s left not only to the elements, but to the kindness of strangers.
Lucas, the Earl of Darcy, and his friends are looking for a place to seek shelter from the storm when he rescues a young woman from a snowdrift and vows to see her to safety. One of his companions seems to recognize the girl, but the young woman is vague in her responses. Still, he’s drawn to her unlike any other and will do anything to keep her from harm.
This book is a teaser, a small taste of Luke and Natalia’s story. It ends on a cliffhanger that leaves you with many questions. Like who exactly was Natalia’s mother? Where are her family? Does her father look for her? Will Lucas accept her and her past? Who knows. Have the next book on deck!
Megan Green has the perfect accent for these historical pieces. Her cantor is on point and every character has the own voice without sounding ridiculous. I really recommend any of her pieces and have listened to several that I’ve enjoyed, such as Rescued by a Sea Nymph.
Overall, I recommend this sweet romance to anyone who wants a light listen as a backdrop to a snow day.
