STORY: The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde—known to his friends as North—left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he’s notorious: polite society has ruled him “too wild to wed.”
Diana never meant to tarnish North’s reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle. Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child’s father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret.
When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.
Yet North is returning a hardened warrior—and this is one battle he’s determined to win.
He wants Diana, and he’ll risk everything to call her his own.
REVIEW: This is the second book in the Wilde series and let me give you heads up right from the start. Don’t read this one unless you’ve read the first story in this series. It will help you greatly to understand both main characters, plus the first book ends in a sort of a cliffhanger regarding the relationship between the two. Okay, now let me tell you what worked for me in this story.
I liked the heroine because she was a complex character and characters like her, neither too good or too bad, is rare these days in romance. Our heroes story was compelling and my heart went out to him.
And what story isn’t fun when there are couple of rascals milling about?
Recommending it wholeheartedly.
