One of Cosmopolitan’s Best Books of 2017!
Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks. Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father’s castle, but just as he grasps that he’s not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty, Miss Willa Ffynche.
Willa presents the façade of a serene young lady to the world. Her love of books and bawdy jokes is purely for the delight of her intimate friends. She wants nothing to do with a man whose private life is splashed over every newspaper.
Alaric has never met a woman he wanted for his own . . . until he meets Willa. He’s never lost a battle.
But a spirited woman like Willa isn’t going to make it easy. . . .
The first book in Eloisa James’s dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm—and introduces a large, eccentric family. Readers will love the Wildes of Lindow Castle!
Run Read Alert!!!! I couldn’t put this book down. I love how this book flips the script and makes it so that drama and the potential for scandal follows the hero rather than like most H.R. books where it tends to find the heroine. I love watching the hero convince the heroine that even though due to his fame he is not the husband she would choose for herself that he is in fact the husband she can not live with out. I love how this couple is faced with and overcomes life and death situations rather than the trivial scandals that we find in many H.R. stories. This book was such a fun read and I can’t wait to read more from this author.
