Veronica Reviews: A WICKED REPUTATION by Liana Lefey
A Wicked Reputation
(Once Wicked #3)
"Very few people truly know themselves…we all invent ourselves daily”
Lady Diana Haversham finds herself an outcast in a time when gossip and perception rule all and a person’s reputation means everything. But never one to back down from a fight, Lady Diana rebrands herself and with the help of a benefactor, finds herself one of the most wanted courtesans in England.
Lord Lucas Blackthorn has recently returned from his exile imposed by his family. His eyes can’t believe that the once meek and shy Lady Haversham is now the mistress of Lord Harrow—a man with certain deviances according to stories circulating amongst the ton. The gambler in him sees getting her into his bed as a high stakes game he’s eager to play, but when the truth of her wicked reputation comes to light, he finds that his heart is all in and the rules of the ton be damned.
“In truth, life was painful, unfair, and utterly without mercy. Especially when it came to love.”
A Wicked Reputationis a delicious historical with a heroine that is no shrinking wallflower. Loved Diana and her approach to life and not giving a damn what others thought of her, but fought fiercely for those she loves. While this is the third installment to theOnce Wickedseries, it may be read standalone. Liana LeFey is a new to me author, and I can’t wait to read more! Absolutely loved, and highly recommend!
