feature: too wicked to wed by cara elliott

Normally I wouldn’t do a feature since I like to review all the books, but this time around I feel a feature is best. In order to participate in the blog tour for Deliciously Sinful by Lilli Feisty, one also had to tour another book on the same day. Cara Elliott’s Too Wicked to Wed sounded interesting enough that I agreed to the double tour. But I truly struggled to get through Too Wicked to Wed. Although I found no fault with the writing in and of itself, I just couldn’t garner any interest in the plot of this historical romance as Alexa just didn’t seem wicked in the slightest bit. The first few chapters indicated nothing special about the protagonist or any other character. I skimmed ahead to see if it would get interesting, but found nothing. Since I didn’t read the entire book, I feel it would be inappropriate to write an actual review.

Here’s the information from the publisher:
"Outspoken and independent, Lady Alexa Bingham enjoys the heady freedom of making all her own decisions, even though the challenges of overseeing her family's country estate are daunting. But when a chance encounter with London's most notorious rake awakens a secret longing for adventure, she accepts her aunt's invitation for a Season in Town...only to find that breaking the rules of the ton has serious consequences.

The Earl of Killingworth uses his rakehell reputation to hide the fact that poverty has forced him to work for a living. As the owner of a gambling den and brothel, Connor has no time for glittering ballrooms or innocent young ladies. But after a reckless wager leaves him with a new business partner, he is forced to take a risky gamble...Will the cards fall in their favor? Alexa and Connor begin to play a dangerous game of intrigue and deception as they seek to outwit a cunning adversary who wants to put them permanently out of business. But if they are not careful, it is the flames of their own fiery attraction that may destroy them."
