Niall Chandler is being harassed by a very overzealous suitor when a white knight comes to her rescue. Vic Savian steps in with some force and rescues Niall, leading to much more than a ride off into the sunset. They have a passionate one-night stand but Niall is not sure if she will ever see Vic again.


But their one night together is only the start of a sexy, sensual, and scorching affair. Niall cannot hold herself back from Vicís powerful and intense sexual pull. But Niall has secrets in her past that are still wreaking havoc with her present. Vic is also cautious about sharing his thoughts and feelings with Niall but when the truth comes out, who will be most devastated, Vic or Niall?


Beth Kery has written a truly scorching romance! Each moment shared by Niall and Vic is pure tension and ferocity. Their entire courtship is a bit rough and lacks the tenderness that make up many romances. On the other hand, there are softer moments in their relationship that help keep things at an even kilter.


Vic is charming, a bit dangerous, and more than willing to fulfill Niallís fantasies. I liked how he started to open up with Niall more and more as the story went on, even as I wished Niall would trust him more. Both are complex characters which makes their decisions that much more serious and at times, frustrating.


Wicked Burn is purely fantastic! From the moment I opened this story I could not put it down, needing to better understand both Niall and Vic. This is going to be a guaranteed hit with erotic romance fans!
