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.

    Eloisa James never disappoints. Can’t wait for they next installment.
  • Good Start, long end.

    By Annaliese Nikole
    I truly love James’ stories, but this one lagged in the end. It is an interesting change where the gentleman is in love and persistent, but the lady’s argument against marriage is useless when she capitulates in the end after adamantly refusing like four or five times....
  • Horribly... disappointing

    By BJ394
    Disappointing when a consistently great author releases a book this tedious, couldn't finish the book
  • Well...

    By LadynLake
    Meh....found the story tedious and slow. Liked the characters in the first of the series and was looking forward to North’s story. Hard to pinpoint what didn’t work for me in this book. Will be interesting to read other reviews. Usually like this author.

    I enjoy books that have multi dimensional characters and this is another great example! I felt as if I knew the characters personally. Ms. James, you have another winner!
  • I am quite wild for the Wildes.

    By Laurie_Oh_TLG
    I am officially obsessed with the Wildes. Eloisa James is weaving a glorious tapestry from book to book and I am anxiously anticipating what comes next with this big and boisterous family. Diana and North’s story has many a moving part, that it almost requires a scorecard. It keeps the reader all the more engaged to see just how these two get to the happiest of ever afters. This a book about before and after, as well as understanding the heart and mind of the one you might love. It’s about getting a full picture and not forcing will. These two grow in ways that make you like them all the more.
  • Getting To Know You

    By math wizard
    A very well written romance story! Diana is betrothed to a duke. She leaves but with reason and is found by North later. Misunderstandings occur and Diana does not clear it up. North leaves to fight in the war in America but returns to find many changes. His love for Diana grows as he gets to know her and she gets to know him. We have a happy ending to an excellent book!
  • I’m wild about the Wildes!

    By Heathercm2001
    I'm wild about the Wildes! I know. I know. It's probably been said a thousand times, and I know it will be said a million times more, but it's the most perfect way to express how I feel about this marvelous series. I've been wondering since the first book what the heck was going on with North and Diana. Their relationship in the first book felt so awkward and weird, and the anticipation of finding out what happens next nearly killed me. And not to ruin anything, but it was soooo worth the wait. I'm still recovering from the deep swoon that this story left me in. It was adorable. It was hilarious. It was heartbreaking. It was perfect. I adore North and Diana. I loved how comfortable they were with each other in this book. James' ability to flawlessly put body language and witty banter to page made this story feel very real to me. Is it weird that I want to be best friends with Diana and North now? This book was everything. It sucked me in immediately, and by the end of it, I felt like I was embraced by one of the best kind of hugs there is. Do yourself a favor and read it. It was an interesting and very well-written story with a fabulous bunch of characters. I wish I could experience for the first time all over again.
