Wilde Child
Wilde Child: Wildes of Lindow Castle | Eloisa James
9 posts | 7 read | 2 to read
Eloisa James returns to the Wildes of Lindow Castle series with the next Wilde child who runs and joins a theatre troupe -- and the duke who tries to save her reputation. He wants a prim and proper duchess, not the Wildest of the Wildes! Already notorious for the golden hair that proves her mother's infidelity, Lady Joan can't seem to avoid scandals, but her latest escapade may finally ruin her: she's determined to perform the title role of a prince--in breeches, naturally. She has the perfect model for an aristocratic male in mind: Thaddeus Erskine Shaw, Viscount Greywick, a man who scorned the very idea of marrying her. Not that Joan would want such a dubious honor, of course. For years, Thaddeus has avoided the one Wilde who shakes his composure, but he's horrified when he grasps the danger Joan's putting herself in. Staring into her defiant eyes, he makes the grim vow that he'll keep her safe. He strikes a bargain: after one performance, the lady must return to her father's castle and marry one of three gentlemen whom he deems acceptable. Not including him, of course.

This was slightly missing a step in the relationship development for me: they jumped straight from antipathy to liking each other without really sorting out how - except for the pants feelings they had - so not perfect but it‘s still a really good fun read - I raced through it in under 24 hours.

Also my surname is Wilde so I have a soft spot for this series!

I was super happy for Thaddeus to finally get a HEA and I loved the revelation of characters through their reactions to Hamlet (on brand really). The dramaturg in me was real excited about character growth in changing interpretations and interactions with the text of Hamlet. But I'm not sure if this was a favorite of the series for me (that scene from Say Yes to the Duke looms large).

This week was a doozy and I'm too tired to move... so it looks like I'm starting a book on my kindle tonight!

Trust Eloisa James to use macaroni correctly historically and still make a good funny.

This was a lovely light and joyous book, just what I needed in this season where so many of us just seem to be hitting a wall. Eloisa James wrote that it was hard to write a joyful book in the beginning of the pandemic, but I'm so glad she did.

There are entertaining shenanigans and romantic interludes, as one would expect.

Ok. I‘m bailing on this one for now. I‘m just not feeling it. Will try again another time, maybe not in audio form. #audiowalk

I may have missed her when she was in Williamstown a few years ago, but buying this made me feel better. 😁🤓📚

Unusual warm day for the beginning of April, so I had to do a nature park walk. I started the newest Elisa James on our walk. #audiowalk
