Madeline Deveridge is all too aware of the whispers behind her back, the rumors that she dispatched her husband to the next world and concealed her crime. But Madeline has far more pressing problems than being called the Wicked Widow. She fears that she and her beloved aunt are being haunted! And all the evidence points to one improbable culprit: the ghost of her late husband. Of course it is impossible, but Madeline cannot take chances. So she dares summon the only person with the power to help her uncover the truth - Artemis Hunt. Brilliant, relentless, reclusive, Artemis has made it his business to keep much of his private life hidden. No one knows that he is the owner of the Dream Pavilions, London's favorite pleasure garden, or that he's a master of an arcane society. Curiosity brings him out on a fog-shrouded night to meet the infamous Wicked Widow, but his amusement quickly flees when he realizes that Madeline has learned enough about his affairs to wreak havoc on his carefully ordered existence. He must secure her guarantee never to divulge his secrets to anyone, even if it meant helping her track down a phantom. As soon as the bargain is struck, Artemis and Madeline find their arrangement complicated by a searing desire, and the frightening realization that the ghost poses a very real danger. Now they must plunge into a world of intrigue and ancient mystery where a tantalizing passion - and a calculating killer - will not be denied. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/19/2014

    " Ok this one was kinda corny and what it is with these Vanza men that every one of the male leads has "Jumped the gun" in all the the first sex scenes written in these books. Ok enough ranting. Other than those two things the story was pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 penelopewanders | 11/20/2013

    " Continuation of the Vanza society stories. Good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oky Septya | 11/7/2013

    " Meskipun ga ada hubungannya dg karakter di seri sebelumnya tapi sama-sama terhubung dg Vanzagaria. Apa itu Vanzagaria? Itu sebuah aliran filosofis, hm, mungkin mirip ideologis gitu. Anyway, saya suka gaya bercerita Amanda Quick yg seru dan lucu serta penuh aksi ini. "

    " This was just okay for me. There were so many storylines going along that at times I was confused. Along with the storylines, there were a ton of characters that jumped in and out of the story. Overall the story was good and I had a smile on my face when I closed the back cover. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michael | 12/7/2011

    " Not very good and the Vanga stuff especially was excruciating. I kept thinking "who cares?" There are a couple of very good scenes and descriptions but overall it was highly disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LibraryLass | 8/21/2011

    " This is probably the third time I have read Wicked widow and it continues to be a 5 star read for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwen Miller | 8/6/2011

    " Yes, the plot is identical to 99% of her other books under the Amanda Quick pseudonym, but the enjoyment comes from the accessories she hangs on the basic plot. This book passed a pleasant afternoon. "
