USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell pits a fiercely independent beauty against a devilish investigator.

Set apart by her ethereal beauty and fearless demeanor, Ophelia Killoran has always been a mystery to those around her—and a woman they underestimated. No one would guess that she spends her nights protecting the street urchins of St. Giles. Ophelia knows what horrors these children face. As a young girl, she faced those horrors herself, and she would have died…if not for the orphan boy who saved her life.

A notorious investigator, Connor Steele never expected to encounter Ophelia Killoran on his latest case. It has been years since he sacrificed himself for her. Now, she hires orphans from the street to work in her brother's gaming hell. But where does she find the children…and what are her intentions?

Ophelia and Connor are at odds. After all, Connor now serves the nobility, and that is a class of people Ophelia knows firsthand not to trust. But if they can set aside their misgivings and work together, they may discover that their purposes—and their hearts—are perfectly aligned.

The Vixen is the second book in the Wicked Wallflower series by Christi Caldwell, I don't think I'm ever going to get over this book! 

The Vixen isn't a fast paced book, it's a book full of little details that make this book become more alive and somehow manages to find a place in your heart.

Now rather than tell you all about the story, I'm just going to share my thoughts just one character and that is Ophelia Killoran. Ophelia has had the worst kind if childhood, the pain that this young women has suffered truly goes beyond the pale! But Ophelia is a fighter, a protector, and righter of wrongs and she is determined to give everyone choices, even if they were denied to her. 

I think out of the whole book and all of the characters, Ophelia's character truly stands out! Her spirit and sass is ever-present, whether she is facing an Earl or the hangman's noose, she's determined to do things her way! And you cannot help but love her for that.

By the end of The Vixen I was surrounded by Kleenex, with a red blotchy face, and a heart full of love and a brain about to short-circuit!

The side effects of reading The Vixen include:
*Feeling angry
*Crying like your life is over
*Cheering so loudly that your husband and cats look at you like you have lost your mind.
*Upon completion, stare in to space completely exhausted!

Don't contact your doctor, you are just entering the Christi Caldwell Book Hangover, you will be fine by the time the next book is released!

All kidding aside, The Vixen is an amazing book! And a definite must-read! Which is why I give it 5 stars

USA Today Bestselling author, Christi Caldwell blames Judith McNaught's "Whitney, My Love," for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and try her hand at writing romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections and she rather enjoys tormenting them before crafting a well-deserved happily ever after! 

Christi makes her home in Southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing, chasing around her feisty six-year-old son and caring for her twin princesses in training!
