Wilde in Love by Eloisa James – The Wildes of Lindow Castle #1 (EPUB)
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.
Wilde in Love
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!
A hero who was handsome and famous but didn’t want to be. A heroine that was beautiful and very proper and controlled, that’s what she presented to the ton. But yet who she really was, was a woman of depth and intelligence as well as strength. But she had somewhat of a problem with our hero’s popularity. And that is what these two needed to work through, his not liking the lime light and proving to Willa he didn’t want to be anyone’s hero but hers. This was a fun book to read and it was full of a lot of sweetness too. I enjoyed these two characters and their relationships development and how it evolved. The writing was wonderful and pacing as well. I can’t wait to read more about the Wildes!
