    Finally finished this series by GF, and find myself burned out on her writing style It is very rich but also draining This story started off interestingly in Venezuela, but it didn t hold my interest I didn t really enjoy the characters or story and definitely not the love story.2.5 stars.Thanks Loriidae for the buddy read

    I can t believe that I have come to the end of the series gasp.I have loved each and every one of these books and will miss the Knight siblings and partners.Am now interested in reading the Spice Trilogy as they tell the stories of the Knight cousins who are Captain Arthur s children.Full review to follow

good wrap up to the Knight Miscellany series It begins in the jungles of Venezuela which was a rather unique setting for a romance novel, then continued with some high seas adventure and a quick trip to Ireland, before settling into the usual glitz and glitter of the Regency ton There are a lot of Gaelen Foley s trademarks present here She always seems to have a knack for drawing me into the story and making me feel like I m really there watching events unfold Her descriptions of the jungle, Jack s ship, and all the little historical details really helped to set the atmosphere There is lots of action and adventure which Ms Foley consistently renders in such a way that it feels like a movie playing in my mind s eye As usual, the love scenes are limited, but those that are present are thoroughly scrumptious and sensual Eden s deflowering was one long, sexy scene in particular which was quite memorable and really spiced things up There were a few parts of the story which moved a bit slowly for me, but for the most part, Ms Foley keeps the pacing going at a pretty good clip, which prevents this 400 page book from feeling as long as it is In fact, as I got closer and closer to the ending, I was beginning to wonder how she was going to wrap things up in a satisfactory manner, but somehow she managed to pull it off All this said though, His Wicked Kiss still ended up probably being my least favorite of the Knight Miscellany series, mainly because in my opinion, the author s characterizations weren t quite up to her usual high standards which left the whole story felling a bit off kilter for me.Right from the start of the series, Jack has been an enigma He was often mentioned in previous books, but never put in an appearance That s because he s been in a self imposed exile for twenty years and basically refuses to come home to his family in England Instead he s been sailing the high seas, making a name for himself both as a captain and as a businessman Now a feisty stowaway and a secret mission have him reluctantly heading back to the place he despises most Jack was a very hard man for me to figure out We never really know why he has stayed away from his family for so long until this book, but I can t say that his reasons really resonated with me The book began with him showing shades of a deeply tortured hero, but I don t think that promise in his character was fully realized I couldn t quite figure out why he felt he had been treated so muchbadly in his childhood than his other three illegitimate brothers I fully understood all of them in their own stories, but Jack, at times, came off as a man who had a chip on his shoulder and was simply angry with the entire world He also seemed to feel the need to sometimes flaunt his bad boy persona, which I think only alienated people further Oftentimes, it was him who was pushing them away, even though he claimed it was the other way around, and if Eden hadn t been there to smooth things over with his family, he probably would have been temperamental with them too, even though they were nothing but nice in welcoming him back into the fold In these moments, it seemed like he was acting a bit childish and just needed to get over it Maybe if the author had givenspecific examples of the things he had endured, rather than just saying that everybody rejected him, I would have beensympathetic, but as written, I just couldn t quite see how things were so horrible for him and why he didn t trust anyone That s not to say that I didn t like him at all, because there were times when he could be quite appealing It just wasn t in the moments that I described above.Eden was a young woman with a dichotomous personality as well She had spent half her life in the jungle with her doctor naturalist father and as such she was quite well trained in survival skills She also could be quite daring She stowed away on Jack s ship in an attempt to return to England and prevent her father from going on a potentially suicidal scientific mission into the ian interior , and quite feisty She stood up to Jack s sailors when she was found and wasn t afraid to give Jack a piece of her mind on a number of occasions She was a bit of a geek as well, having extensive scientific and medical knowledge of jungle plants On the one hand, she was something of a female Tarzan, but on the other, she was a little obsessed with her fairy tale fantasies of life back in England She devoured the fashion magazines that her cousin sent even though they were a year old by the time she received them, and was constantly daydreaming about her Prince Charming and attending balls She realizes pretty quickly that she s apparentlyattracted to the bad boy type than the city dandy when Jack makes her all hot and bothered right from the start Eden was also quite gentle and patient with Jack, seeming to understand him better than he understood himself In fact, she waspatient with him than I probably could have been, although she did have her limits and gave him the cold shoulder when he made a dumb move even though he reversed course later Ultimately, I felt like she gave into his whims a little too easily though, considering that in my opinion, he was being rather irrational Overall, I guess she was a fairly likable heroine, just not one that I connected with on a really deep level.Perhaps because I didn t fully connect with the hero and heroine themselves, their relationship wasn t quite perfect for me either Jack does a bit of ping ponging, beginning the story as something of an arrogant cad who exhibits his pirate ness by simply taking what he wants The bathing scene after Jack discovers Eden stowed away on his ship would have been extremely sexy if it hadn t also been skating perilously close to that big no no for me forced seduction Not only did it have that old school feel to me because of Jack s ungentlemanly behavior, but also because Eden, who was initially pretty embarrassed and intimidated, suddenly started eating it up His actions are explained later when Eden figured out what his game was, but it still didn t quite work for me From there until near the end of the book, Jack became a near perfect lover and husband, never forcing Eden even when she was angry with him and denying him her bed, and always being gentle, loving and passionate He was also very courageous and heroic in saving Eden s lifethan once Then, in a fit of jealously, he turned into a bit of a brute again, doing something totally scandalous in public and then essentially blaming Eden for it instead of owning his own feelings I can t say that I was entirely sure why they fell in love either, because initially their interactions seemed like mere lust, but I will concede that after they married, Jack and Eden seemedlike a loving newlywed couple Ultimately, I may not have always respected or understood their actions, but they were still farlikable than some romance couples I ve read His Wicked Kiss has a number of secondary characters and does reunite the entire Knight clan although not all of them have their own lines It also introduces their Uncle Arthur, a sea captain like Jack Readers will get a bit of background on his three children and another mention of Knight family friend Ian Prescott first introduced in Lady of Desire , all of whom are a part of the spin off Spice Trilogy There are a number of other stand outs, from Jack s loyal crew who are something of a family to him, to Eden s father who is also hiding away from the world just like Jack I don t think I m giving away too much here by saying so, because it was pretty obvious from the outset of the story that he was being set up as the villain, but I just didn t find Connor to be a very compelling bad guy In the previous books of the series, the ne er do wells really came alive for me, but aside from the very end, Connor never jumped off the page as truly frightening or evil His villainy was played as some sort of mental madness that had very little rhyme or reason except that he had somehow become obsessed with Eden Much like the hero and heroine, he too, in my opinion, was lacking in his characterization.While I would definitely say that some of the characters in His Wicked Kiss neededdepth for me to fully appreciate them, it wasn t really a bad book overall I may have spent some time questioning certain parts, but there were at least an equal number of passages that were quite enjoyable to read Gaelen Foley has a lovely writing style that quite simply makes for pleasurable reading That alone tends to mask some of the other story weaknesses His Wicked Kiss is the seventh and final novel in the Knight Miscellany series, and although it wasn t the best book, it was still an agreeable story I m now looking forward to learningabout those Knight cousins from India The Spice Trilogy to see if they can live up to the wicked reputation set by their London relatives

    This should be a 4 1 2 star review as I was a tad, a smidge disappointed with the somewhat rushed ending but I cannot thank my good friend ATron enough for turning me on to this author and sending me her well loved books D It was another excellent read I am a little saddened that this journey of the Knight Miscellany is over I was captivated by the entire family and agree with some that Lucien Knight Lord of Fire was the best one written He s my favorite brother, hero and overall book This should be a 4 1 2 star review as I was a tad, a smidge disappointed with the somewhat rushed ending but I cannot thank my good friend ATron enough for turning me on to this author and sending me her well loved books D It was another excellent read I am a little saddened that this journey of the Knight Miscellany is over I was captivated by the entire family and agree with some that Lucien Knight Lord of Fire was the best one written He s my favorite brother, hero and overall book.His Wicked Kiss is a great tale with a feisty if not a tad annoying heroine Eden Faraday and a hard and to die for hero Black Jack Knight He was exactly how I expected him to be after reading 6 books with the whisper of him through out as the black sheep of the family talk over him He melted well, meaning when love finally found him and he let it inHe surrendered fiercely and without abandon He s sexy and commanding, never letting anyone in until he meets Eden in the treetops of the jungle canopy, sealing their fate I think this book was spicier and heavier in the sexy department, which I don t mind as it went with the story and characters I m excited that she extended this tale a bit by brining on cousins of the Knight s in the next little trio of books the Spice Trilogy

    This book started with a bang The hero and heroine were enigmatic and intriguing and seemed to be on course to having a great story Unfortunately everything seemed to fizzle out a little in the middle The mental emotional drama seemed forced and did not seem to have sufficent background for either character Overall the story was sweet and did provide a quasi ending for the Knight heroes, but it was not my favorite of the series I do have the Spice Trilogy still to read, which is supposed to This book started with a bang The hero and heroine were enigmatic and intriguing and seemed to be on course to having a great story Unfortunately everything seemed to fizzle out a little in the middle The mental emotional drama seemed forced and did not seem to have sufficent background for either character Overall the story was sweet and did provide a quasi ending for the Knight heroes, but it was not my favorite of the series I do have the Spice Trilogy still to read, which is supposed to continue the Knight legacy, but after this story, I think I need a break
