Audio Book: Wicked Deeds on a Winters Night by Kresley Cole


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?

The Characters


Heartbroken and torn between a past love and his potential mate, I personally was ready for him to move forward, move to Mariketa. 
Stubborn, protective, creative and intelligent… These are all things that are ingredients for a sexy man, and Bowen definitely is that.
I hurt for him with his overwhelming guilt, but it got old, quickly. 
Funniest thing was his blundering attempts to make Mariketa want him.  It was like a puppy begging for his new owner to love and play with him. 


She is strong willed, yet not set into her immortality yet.  She seems to take a lot of risks that show how brave (or stupid) she is.
She has a lot of doubt about herself worth, which does add some interesting conflicts.
I love how she said 99 out of 100 times she blows things up.  I think I laughed more at that comment than anything else. 


This book generally picks up in the middle of the Hie (check out the book prior).  A bit frustrating to have to review stuff, but it quickly moved forward.

Hexa is a backdrop villain.  She is the enemy of all witch kind.  And she is mentioned several times, but you are sure what role she will actually play in this story.

I think this book does a generally good job of bringing the first several books together.  I mean, you get a bit of Emma and Lachlain, Sebastian and Kaderan, plus funny Nix.

In some ways, with the mirrors, apples and how the end happens, this story reminds me a lot of Snow White (without the dwarves). 

Overall, this is a good book.  I definitely recommend it.

Happy Reading!

  1. I read the first book in this series ages ago and really liked it but never got around to reading the others. I think I might just have to do that soon. Great review!
