Publisher's Summary

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 Fynche.
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' dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm - and introduces a large, eccentric family. Listeners will love the Wildes of Lindow Castle!

Light entertainment.

In the beginning, it was quite entertaining. but half-way through, the end was a dead give-away. Not that I expected less than a HEA, but how we got there is very transparent, which is disappointing. The characters are interesting, but the story needs some tightening up. At the end, I was picking apart historical issues for my own amusement. It's a great light listen, ideal for when we don't want a challenging story. I'll think about the rest of the series as they come out, because EJ has proven to be a good writer in past books so perhaps she will get her stride in the 2nd or third.

Susan Duerden has done a good job of narrating, it is well produced.

Another winner

I want to say Eloisa is back. Witty characters with that bit of the bizarre or modern. Narrator sometimes misses gender.
