Wilde Child: Wildes of Lindow Castle (The Wildes of Lindow Castle Book 6) Kindle Edition
"James displays her signature humor...[in] a story as wild as the heroine's family name and one that will reward romance fans who want a funny book about an unusual heroine."-- "Kirkus Reviews" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
About the Author
Eloisa James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got an MPhil from Oxford, a PhD from Yale, and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. In 2013 she won a Rita Award for Best Romance Novella. She teaches Shakespeare in the English department at Fordham University in New York. She is the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

This is a book to read and reread. Thank you for the homerun, Ms. James!
She thought she had a "thick skin" and the darts and barbs wouldn't hurt her if she was an outrageous 'character" and laughed often and just a tad too loud, and if she'd flirt with titled men and then turn down their proposal. The one man (a friend of the family) Thaddeus Greywick who is the epitome of being "proper" and she'd thought an unemotional man!
The story unfolds as Joan leans that Thaddeus is not what she thought and Thaddeus discovers Joan is even more special than he ever thought. He finds that he's always really been attracted to her but was afraid to be "not perfect".
I feel Joan whose love of acting and longing to go "on the stage" really was on the stage all her life acting as if she had no care of scandal or rejection by society. She knew they strike at her so she'd get the strike in first so to speak.
Thaddeus defends her against a relative of her step-mother, and then they start to clearly see each other in stages! It is like a lovely flower opening from a tight bud to watch these two characters unfold and mature together. Healing each other's needs.
I really think the villain is modeled after a living person who will be nameless but every detail seems so close to the real person that feel I know this person!
The only thing (I know I'm a senior senior) that I did not enjoy was the explicit details of their sex acts with details I really didn't need or want to know!
Otherwise I'd say that I loved every page and couldn't wait to get back to my reading time!!! ENJOY--I DID.
Eloisa James has been in my top two authors since her first book (some of which I have in paperback) before Kindlw!
Wilde Childe is the new title in The Wildes series, about Lady Joan Wilde and Greywick readers of the series are already familiar with. The series is Historical Romance, FM.
I really loved this one! Oh, it was such a truly pleasant read. I have found myself really loving the writing in this series. I've read lots of historical romances in a few decades since very young so I've seen my fair share. I've difficulties in finding new, modern era names I'd like, but I think in this case I've nailed it to my joy! That is to say perhaps more, I find this author "nailing it" ;)
I enjoy the characters, descriptions and how it's all told, the style of writing in general. This is in my opinion the proper romance that I love to read and find enjoyable and to the specifications of what represents romance to me personally. I had to really put brakes on reading too fast in order to spread out the enjoyment so I'd not read and finish it too quickly and there'd be some for several days though I wanted to do otherwise :)
I really loved the way the author took the couple and managed in essence to transport them out of this world into one a near-magical one of their own figuratively speaking. Of course it's not quite realistic considering the era and framework by way of society in cold reality but ... It all the whole of it fit completely seamplessly the series framework and family in question. The surrounding family existed and was there as a fitting to a tee support in the story quite clearly being of great further enjoyment to say the least - but still the emphasis was so skillfully put on the couple in such a way, the author succeeded so magnificently in enhancing the romantic feeling to a sheer heaven for a romance reader. I liked how all the relevant facts wasn't revealed to begin with either. All in all I consider this a most enchanting story. I've nothing to complain and there's nothing I'd change. Perfect for me personally. Makes me want to read more!
