Spared execution if he undertakes a dangerous mission to St Petersburg, Jack Crowlas finds himself entangled... From the windswept cliffs of Cornwall to the glittering ballrooms of St Petersburg, this is Regency romance with a twist.

Wicked By Design Summary

Wicked By Design by Katy Moran

'Lush, dark, utterly real and above all achingly romantic' RUTH WARE.


Four women sit in the candlelit drawing-room at Nansmornow, an ancient Cornish manor house. The air is thick with unspoken suspicion and secret malice. As Hester Lamorna pours tea for her three guests, she has no idea one of them is about to rock her new marriage to its very foundations.

Half a world away, Hester's impossible and charmismatic husband, Jack 'Crow' Crowlas, will be caught up in a chess game of sexual manipulation, played out across the sumptuous ballrooms of St Petersburg. All Hester and Crow hold most dear will be tested to the limit and beyond: their love for each other and their child, and for Crow, the loyalty of his only brother.

'Sweeping and romantic, with a hero to rival Ross Poldark' IMOGEN EDWARDS-JONES.

'A thrilling, sexy romp through brilliantly reimagined history' HOLLY HEPBURN.

Wicked By Design Reviews

'A thrilling, sexy romp through brilliantly reimagined history. Hester is one of my very favourite heroines and it's probably best not to ask what I'd like to do with Crow ... Totally absorbing' Holly Hepburn.
'Sweeping and romantic, with a hero to rival Ross Poldark, Wicked By Design is a fantastic and compelling novel that draws you in and paints a glorious alternative St Petersburg, keeping you hooked until the end' Imogen Edwards-Jones.
'A swashbuckling, sparkling world of a novel ... with a mad, bad and dangerous-to-know hero' Suzannah Dunn.
'A master of pace, plotting and action packed scenes' Rhian Ivory.
'It's pretty hard to pull off a good Georgette Heyer homage, but Moran makes it look easy with this addictive sequel set in a world where Napoleon has won the Battle of Waterloo' i newspaper.
'Excellent writing and characterization pushes it up several notches - with special mention for Hester: a fizzing-with-life, believable and resourceful heroine if ever there was one' Daily Mail.
'Badly behaved aristocrats, gloriously opinionated women and danger at every turn' i newspaper.
'Every feel-good list needs at least one Regency bodice-ripper and they don't come any better than Moran's second book, a wonderfully knowing take on the genre, stuffed full of deceit, desire and beautiful people behaving appallingly' i newspaper.
