REVIEW: WICKED WHISPERS BY TINA DONAHUE

 

It is the year 1488. The Inquisition and it’s demands torment many of the inhabitants of Spain. While so much revolves around magic and devil worship, only a few find themselves safe from the evils surrounding this time. All had to be careful of what they did and said. Then there were those who spread gossip and fear with rumors of devil worship and magic.

 

Senorita Dana Sancha defines herself as a healer. She reads and spends copious hours researching cures for various diseases. When anyone falls sick with fever or wounds, she helps them mend. Never does she want marriage where a man can tell her what she can and cannot do, knowing her husband would force her to cease. The only man who can tempt her heart is Enrique.

 

Enrique de Zayas is the man who she thinks wants to change all of her hopes and aspirations. Yet Enrique falls so in love with Sancha, he is willing to do anything to win her heart and protect her.

 

Lucinda de Cortes wants to wed Enrique. She will stop at nothing to see the fall of Sancha and herself in the magnificent castle owned by Enrique.

 

The plot and characters are well developed. The research into the Spanish Inquisition is well done. I loved the descriptions of the clothes, décor in the castle and surrounding areas.

 

For me Wicked Whispers has a major twist and a surprise ending. I love surprises. I highly recommend this book for all those who love historical romances.

BLURB:

 

Follow the heart through darkness…

As the Inquisition gains force, even the faintest rumor can brand one a heretic. In this world it is Sancha’s gift–or curse–to be blessed with the gift of healing. But the villagers are in need of her arts more than ever, and she feels it is her duty to help them at the risk of losing her life. And at the sacrifice of her heart…

Enrique has never wanted a woman as he does Sancha. Determined to have her love, he woos her with exquisite passion, giving her refuge to pursue her healing in secret. But their very desire and escape from the ruthless forces of the world may be their undoing. And together, they must pit themselves against a jealous rival and archaic tradition to secure their place in a hopeful new dawn…

EXCERPT:

 

This wasn’t how he’d envisioned the most important moments of his life. He’d imagined music playing, candles dancing in a gentle breeze, him holding her hands as she waited breathlessly for his words.

 

Sancha, like Isabella, needed to learn how women behaved around men, accepting that males ruled, females obeyed, and everything was as God, nature, and men had always demanded.

 

He lifted one eyebrow. “I would ask if you enjoyed our kiss, but I sense you did.”

 

She opened her mouth then closed it.

 

Just as well. He wouldn’t have accepted her denial. “Since you did enjoy our kiss and moved into me for another that I found even more delightful, I believe you and I were meant for each other. Much as Isabella and Fernando have found perfection in their union. Therefore, I want you to know I intend to woo, win, wed, and bed you.”

 

Her face turned white.

 

He would have expected that reaction if he’d threatened her with death, not everlasting love or a blissfully happy marriage.

 

She stepped back. “No.”

 

No? He crossed his arms. “Is it your habit to kiss men as though you have deep feelings for them, then say no to their offers of marriage?”

 

“Of course not. Only with you.”

 

“What?”

 

She wrung her hands. “You, señor, are the first and the last man I ever intend to kiss.”

How comforting, at least when it came to her not wanting to be with another man. “Then what part of my offer are you saying no to?”

 

“All of it.”
