Salem, MA 1692


On a moonless night, he rides into the winter forest on his beast as black as midnight . . .


Dashing stranger, Henry Dunham, comes to Salem on a mysterious errand, but is thrown from his horse in the dead of night and rescued by the local Puritan midwife, Lydia Colson.


Haunted by her past, Lydia is running from her own dark secrets, avoiding intrusive questions by pretending her dead husband is simply…away. But when she and Henry are caught in a compromising situation, one punishable by Puritan law, he saves her from scandal by claiming to be her errant spouse…and claiming her bed.


Forced to fake a marriage, Lydia and Henry find their passion overwhelming and their vows a little too real. As their lies become truths, a witch hunt closes in on Lydia, threatening not only their burgeoning love, but her life.

I haven't ever seen a historical romance set in the time of the Salem witch trials and, since I think that time is very interesting, I was excited about reading this. It didn't quite meet all my expectations, but I did really enjoy it. Her Wicked Sin was a lovely read, complete wi... ...more

Normally I'm not a fan of American history, growing up in Europe I know nothing about it and typically it holds no interest for me.
However, 30 pages into Her Wicked Sin I was hooked. Not only was this book a wonderful love story but a fab way of giving a history lesson to ppl like me that normall... ...more

By Sandra September 11, 2013

A very interesting read that really painted a picture of Salem in the 1600's. The author's words created a nice dark mood and you really felt you were back in that time period. I enjoyed the romance between the hero and heroine, but I also felt the ending was a bit rushed.

My only gripe was the u... ...more

First of all a HUGE thank you to Ms. Ballance and Ms. Hightower for getting a copy to me. I loved and adored this book! Historicals are tricky because I often find that the characters use modern language and have modern opinions and feelings. NOT true here. The author has clearly resear... ...more

I've always been curious about this part of American history. There has never been anything definitive written as to what actually happened, what truthfully started it all. I've read many different interpretations of the events and have not really been completely satisfied with them.

By Sara December 05, 2013

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this, as I’m not a big fan of historical romance. I’m happy to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It may be about puritans, but there isn’t anything pure about it, if you know what I mean (wink, wink).
Set in Salem during the Puritan days, Henry is a myste... ...more

By Snarky Mom September 26, 2013

I have to admit - I'm not usually one to go for the historical romances. It just smacks too much of having to "think" for me. But you know, many people LOVE historical romances - it gives you insight into another time and way of life, which like fantasy romances, can offer a true unknown escape.... ...more

By Nicky October 13, 2013

I haven’t read many historical romances and, after reading Her Wicked Sin, I’ve discovered that I’ve really been missing out.

I couldn't put it down. No, seriously, I couldn't. I started it yesterday afternoon and stayed up until almost 3 am to finish it. I just had to know what happened next. I always had an inkling, but I had to turn the page... just to be sure. I just fell in love with the setting and the time period... ...more

By My Book Addiction and More September 14, 2013

I loved HER WICKED SIN, a romantic story set in 1692 in Salem, MA. It was suspenseful at times and also had a few twists I didn’t see coming (I think it’s great when that happens!). I experienced a range of emotions as I read this story. Anger that children and adults could be so downright nasty... ...more

By Geri July 26, 2016
