Wicked Wyckerly by Patricia Rice is an outstanding historical romance. Ms. Rice has provided readers with a well-written book. I love the characters in this story. Fitz has just become the 7th Earl of Danecroft, a bankrupt estate and a sea of people wanting money from him. Abigail is a country girl, happy with her crops but now needs a man to help her get her young siblings back home where they belong. Fitz and Abigail's story is loaded with drama, humor, spice, action and a little suspense. I enjoyed reading Wickey Wyckerly and look forward to reading my next book by Patricia Rice. Wicked Wyckerly is book 1 of the Rebellious Sons Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
