STORY: Notorious for her free-spirited antics, Lady Elizabeth Wylder revels in attention—but not the sort that leaves her humiliated when her future husband, the Duke of Hawkesworth, fails to appear for their much-anticipated first introduction.
So when a chance encounter leads to a sizzling kiss with a dangerously handsome stranger, she nearly succumbs. The shock of finally meeting her betrothed only to come face to face with her rakish would-be seducer inspires fury—and fans the flames of a fire that both Lizzie and the Duke acknowledge is a most agreeable way to start a marriage. In her husband’s arms, Lizzie knows she has found love. But is the passion that accompanies endless nights of erotic discovery enough to persuade a duke whose scandalous lineage and lifestyle prevent him from giving his heart completely?
REVIEW: This is the second book in Isabelle Bradford’s Wylder Sisters series and I was torn about it. While I liked some aspects of the story, especially the trope of “childhood betrothal”, I had a very hard time connecting to the main characters. I found them both immature and childish, therefore I stopped caring for them half way through their story.
After I read the first book in this series, and not wholly happy with that story, I thought to give this author another try and again, while some parts were humorous, others were tedious.
That said, you may like it! This is one of those books that you either like or just don’t care for.
