Lady Portia Derring may have been the daughter of a duke but that didn't keep her from being on the brink of poverty. Portia's grandmother has given her an ultimatum, accept a proposal of marriage or one will be accepted for her. Portia's family is desperate for the money her marriage would bring. Sent by her grandmother to visit the Moreton family, and the unmarried Earl of Moreton, Portia has no intention of marrying despite her grandmother's ultimatum!

Heath, Earl of Moreton is more determined than Portia to never marry. With insanity running in his family, Heath refuses to wed. Portia tempts him from his vow with her very presence. Although Heath fights his desire for Portia, he cannot stop wanting her. Will his family's history of madness keep Heath from his one chance at happiness?

Too Wicked to Tame is the second book by Sophie Jordan. Fans of Ms. Jordan's debut novel, Once Upon a Wedding Night might remember a precocious young girl named Portia. Portia is all grown up and gets her own novel in Too Wicked to Tame.

I really liked the adult Portia too. Portia was clever enough to dodge marrying for years and I admired that about her. I also liked the way Portia interacted with Heath. When she didn't back down from his attempts to run her off, I liked her all the more.

All that aside, I would have chased Heath, Earl of Moreton, to the ends of the earth despite the threat of madness. He was just that yummy. Handsome, rich and possessor of a keen wit that made me want him enough to overlook a little thing like insanity. Seriously!

Historical romance fans will not want to miss Heath and Portia's story in Sophie Jordan's Too Wicked to Tame.

Once again Sophie Jordan steps out of the rarified world on the ton in a wonderful story of two people who have given up any hope of happiness, only to find love.

Portia is the penniless sister of a duke who would marry her off to the devil himself if the price was right. She wants nothing to do with marriage which in her experience is one step away from imprisonment. Heath is the victim of a family curse which makes marriage impossible, especially to a lady like Portia. And yet when he rescues her on the road in a bitter storm, the need to tempt her is irresistible--and tempt her he does. For the first time in her life, Portia feels desire for a man, and knowing Heath is reckless and dangerous only fuels the attraction. Although nothing technically happens between them, they see in each other a passion that can never be and they part, never to meet again. Or so they both assume.

When they meet again, Heath's outrage at what he sees as Portia's plot to marry him backfires. Instead of driving her away, his insistence that he will never marry her suggests to Portia a way to avoid the humiliation of another season of husband hunting in London. Soon, however, they must deal with the undeniable attraction that could ruin both of their lives.

The characters in the story are especially compelling. Portia is a complex mix of independence and vulnerability, while Heath hides a deep sadness under an exterior of arrogance and anger. Even the secondary characters are multi-faceted people who do more than act as a background to the heroine and hero. While most regency romances tend to focus on social conventions of the time, in Ms. Jordan's story the main characters have been badly damaged by their respective family situations and as a result live on the edge of polite society.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Portia Derring does not wish to marry. Then again, neither does the Earl of Moreton, and both of them have very good reason to avoid the shackles of matrimony. Portia cares nothing for love, wanting only the freedom her mother enjoys, and Heath has vowed never to wed, never to sire an heir, and thus, never to inflict his family's madness on another.

But their grandmothers have schemed to get them together, and so Portia departs London for the chilly landscape of Yorkshire, to stay with the Moreton clan and tempt the earl into changing his mind. The earl quickly finds himself bewitched--and irritated beyond measure--and so repeatedly asks Portia to leave. Yet relieved to be away from her family's constant bullying, to be left to her own devices, free to roam the Moreton library at will, Portia is very content to stay.

The pair of them butt heads at every turn, and sexual tension begins to slowly mount, moving them inexorably towards a point of no return. But just when the outcome seems inevitable, a little twist changes everything. With beautifully drawn characters, vivid description, and sensuous details, Sophie Jordan has penned a thrillingly satisfying novel that will leave you breathless with anticipation while wanting to savor every bit.

Maybe part of my problem with this novel was that I was led to believe it would contain witty dialogue. I might have liked it had there been witty dialogue. Better yet, had there been witty characters. Or even charming characters. Or even something I could care about in this book. Right up to the predictable "dramatic" rescue at the end I still was hoping something would happen to make these characters interesting. To make this story interesting and not just a silly mishmash of several formulaic plot rehashes. Look elsewhere for a good read.
