When Lucian sends Juliet and Charlotte away, Gareth pursues after them. When he finds them he asks Juliet to marry him. Married, Gareth hasn't the faintest idea how to be a father and a husband. He's known as the Wild One. A title well earned from his days of pranks and debauchery. He hung out with a group of friends known as the Den of Debauchery. Despite his faults and reputation Gareth sets out to prove he can be a supporting husband and father. But can he bring himself to 'work' for their living, or will Gareth prove to be the lazy, useless brother the Duke of Blackhearth tells him he is? Will Juliet stand by Gareth as he proves himself to be a good provider?
Lucian is an over-protective brother who manipulates his siblings into being the best they can be. He has manipulated Gareth and Juliet. What will happen when they discover Lucian's work?
There is so much driving this novel that I couldn't put it all down. I haven't described the half of it. A character-driven novel with a sound plot keeps the reader turning the pages. The characters's growth is what makes this reader stay glued to the story. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Miss Juliet Paige was a storekeeper's daughter. But she had fallen for Charles. When he died she could not believe it. But she had to live for the baby. She would have to go to England as she promised.
Lord Gareth de Monttforte, third son of the fourth Duke of Blackheath, and black-sheep brother of Lucien, the Fifth Duke. Leader of the Den of Debauchery and he has saved the lives of the passengers of the Post coach passengers and a small boy who ran toward him, he was so scared. Lord Gareth was shot in the side and bled profusely. Juliet was trying to get someone to get a doctor. It was raining and he had been stung by Nettles on one side of his face. Needless to say, he was a mess.
Juliet thought, "he was not just the brother of the duke but he was Charles's brother and uncle of her baby daughter".
Such a heartwarming story. As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was exciting watching them as they fell in love. It seemed to flow seamlessly. The characters were robust, lifelike and so romantic.
The author did such a great job of telling the tale and didn't forget a detail. I feel it is worth the time to read and I highly recommend it.
After losing the love of her life in the American Colonies, his parting words prompt Juliet to make the perilous journey over the Atlantic to seek refuge within the safety of his affluent family. Now considered a traitor, pregnant and alone, she really has no other alternative. After a near death encounter where her deceased fiance’s brother, Gareth, saves her, Juliet finds herself involved with a most unlikely hero. Gareth, who is wild, untamed, seemingly undisciplined becomes her even more unlikely champion. With Lucian, the manipulative older brother, pushing them both to their limits, these two find themselves together and ultimately falling in love.
My fellow romance book-loving friends, if that is not enough to convince you to read this one, the huge twist at the end should entice you, as well. You will be absolutely stunned. So what are you waiting for? Jump in with Book 1, The Wild One, and read the whole series. I must admit I loved Lucian, as well. In fact, you definitely should read his HEA, The Wicked One. He finally meets his match in Eva.
Title: The Wild One, Series: The de Montforte Brothers , Author: Danelle Harmon, Pages: 373, HEA, stand-alone with a huge twist at the end, Very steamy scenes, unexpected pregnancy.

However, I then read the next two books in this series - the first about the older brother, presumed dead in America, who returns to England with a young woman in tow after he has endured a real emotional roller-coaster. Unfortunately for me, he came across as a self-pitying prig; he was betrothed in England but while in America met and impregnated a young innocent woman; he offered her marriage for this reason alone. Understandable that he was lonely, far from home, etc. - but when he 'recovers' he then does exactly the same thing with the young innocent who nurses him back to health [fortunately not impregnating her!] She returns to England with him, looking for a better life, and he wrings his hands and endlessly talks about how unworthy he is. Get over yourself! The third book was just so preposterous that I skipped huge chunks of it. It could have been written for a young, socially inept couple today, such was the lack of authenticity for the period.
A reviewer I respect writes that the Duke's story is worth reading, so I will do so, after a decent interval! However, that must be the last - even the premise of the sister's story sounds pretty ridiculous. Maybe the fact that I have read Julie Ann Long's Pennyroyal Green series, and Mary Balogh's 'Slightly' series has coloured my judgement. Whatever, after the first story I found the others sadly wanting - and the sex is frantic and never gave me any impression that these couples, except in the first book, were making love.
Juliet? A strong mother travels the Atlantic to give her daughter her family name. Finds a family in conflict. The eldest brother dealing from the death of his parents at a young age determined to keep the rest of his family safe by what ever means.
Gareth, the fun loving irresponsible younger brother, in need of a purpose to achieve his full potential. Oh how to do that?
Lord Gareth lowers himself to look after his family, whom he loves to distraction and looks to win them over and prove his worth, but stumbles into the word of bare knuckle fighting. Would he die earning the respect from his brother and his wife? To make his daughter proud?
Read it and see. Emotionally charged and a mystery to boot.
Well worth a read.
Juliet is from Boston, one of the colony's in America which is now at war with the Redcoats. She is travelling to Blackheath with her baby daughter to throw herself on the mercy of her dead fiance, Charles' family as he asked her to should anything happen to him. She doesn't realise until she is on her way there after Gareth is shot that the injured man in her arms is Charles' brother.
I won't go into anymore detail as I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but what follows is a gripping and heartfelt romance between a woman torn between her feelings for two brothers, one living, one dead and a man who wants to prove that he isn't a useless wastrel, especially to the woman he has fallen in love with and his older brother.
Gareth is a flawed but lovable hero, he is kind, funny and compassionate but also strong, he knows how to fight! Juliet is a strong heroine and compliments Gareth perfectly and the passion between them sizzles! All of the characters are very well developed, even the secondary characters leap off the page, especially Lucien, Gareth's dark and manipulative older brother. I can't wait to read his story!
This is a great story, it has everything, humour, drama, sex, betrayal and I advise anyone who enjoys historical romance to buy it. I purchased the second book in the series before I had finished this one and can't wait to start reading it.
The character development of the Lord's family may have to wait until the next books in the series, as apart from the Duke his other siblings don't get much of a mention.
