Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night
4.5 Stars

Synopsis
Bowen MacRieve is determined to return his deceased mate to life, but the moment he sets eyes on Mariketa the Awaited he cannot resist the passion that burns between them. Mari is unable to control her immense powers until she must use them to protect the only thing she ever truly wanted - Bowen. Will Bowen and Mari risk everything to be together?

Review
Definitely lives up to its potential.

Mari is my favorite heroine in the series. She has incredible power and I love that she has no qualms using it against Bowen - she is one woman you don't want to meet in a dark alley.

In the previous books, Bowen's suffering made him a captivating character and his struggle to come to terms with his growing obsession with Mari only enhances his heroic status. There were times when I wanted to slap him upside the head for his prejudices, but he more than makes up for them by the end.

Together, Mari and Bowen are simply amazing. Their love/hate relationship is engrossing, their steamy scenes sexy as hell and their banter laugh-out-loud funny.

The beginning of the story overlaps with certain moments from the Talisman Hie originally depicted in No Rest for the Wicked, and it is interesting to see these events from Bowen's perspective. The rest of the plot is entertaining even if it is a little predictable toward the end but it all comes together in an explosive and satisfying conclusion.

Cole's world building is well detailed and compelling, and I particularly enjoyed the introduction of several new secondary characters who will ultimately get books of their own, i.e. the demon brothers Cade and Rydstrom.

All in all, a fun, fun, fun read. ( )

Tormented by the death of his mate a werewolf male finds himself falling for his enemy-must against his will. The female is fated to be a chosen one and though her powers are elusive and unreliable it's clear that she's got potential to be the strongest in the lore. I've read this book 5 times and I know it'll never get boring. God I love this whole series soooo much and it's really hard to chose a favorite but this and A Hunger Like no Other are tied for first. READ THIS BOOK! ( )

I LOVE IAD!!!

Love love love this story! Lykae heroes are my favorite, and Bowen is a sexy beast! I love this whole world, but the House of Witches fascinates me, and I love Mari and her mirrors. ( )

I sort of learned to love Bowen in this book. I thought I had it all figured out and the end sort of shocked me, until I got it figured out again! I like how Mari was a strong and independent woman even when she was doubting herself. I also like how Bowen had to learn a lot along the way regardless of how old he really is. I am curious to learn more about the demon brothers and hope we see them in a future book. ( )

Book description
A brutal Highland werewolf. An exquisite young witch.
Immortal enemies … forbidden temptations.
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?
