No one is more surprised than Lord North when he returns from war to find his ex-fiancee in his ancestral home…working as a governess in a sexy, fiery new Wildes of Lindow Castle romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James…
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.
“RITA Award–winner James again elevates historical romance to sublime new heights through the lithe elegance of her writing, her exceptional gift for creating richly nuanced characters, and her ability to flawlessly marry potent sensuality with a deliciously dry sense of humor.” (Booklist (starred review))
“Eloisa James has a talent for both characters and plot, which makes her novels a joy to read…Her research is flawless and subtle, and the storyline is both fun and thought-provoking. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys historical romance.” (Historical Novel Society)

Looking forward to the next one!
I had this glorious review written in my head after I finished the book and then I went to sleep….well, I did dream of North but the fabulous words didn’t stick. I love the book and can’t wait for the next in the series. All are standalone but why miss out on the other great stories? But the book. Enjoy the HEA.
