This is the third installment of the Wilde family stories: Lavinia and Parth‘s story. Lavinia needs to marry so she proposes to Parth. He declines but offers to find he a rich husband. Their story is intertwined with North and Diana‘s wedding preparation. I enjoyed their roundabout journey to their HEA. It also sets up Betsy‘s story. These Wilde‘s are the new Bridgertons. Can‘t wait for the next story in this Wilde series. #keeper #romantsy

Too Wilde to Wed | Eloisa James
Pickpick

The things I love most about Eloisa's books are the depth of the characterizations and the ingenuity of the storytelling. There is never a clear path to the all important HEA- Happily ever after. The situation seems unsolvable. The lovers seem bound for heartache. But it works out in a clever way as the pieces fit together unexpectedly. Great story I cannot wait for the next one in the series. Wilde for You #romantsy #keeper

EloisaJames Thank you!! 😘😘 2y
MommaBeja @EloisaJames no thank you! I am always concerned when writing these not to give away the story. 2y

A tale of guilt with a unique voice. The story slowly reveals itself and is disturbing at each revelation. I couldn‘t put it down.

Garett and Random‘s tale was filled with angst and intrigue. Garett was no shy miss. It happily includes West who is a fan favorite. His story is next. Cannot wait since it would seem to include Lord St Vincent and Evie.

Eloisa has once again written my new favorite book. The characters are multidimensional. The story is witty and thoughtful, I am hooked by the background dramas and cliffhanger of other potential couples and their futures. The next story is out for preordering so I have if the Wildes are Eloisa's Bridgertons they will be embraced by many #keeper #romantsy #litsy Thanks Eloisa!

EloisaJames Thanks so much!!! Blowing you many kisses. E 2y

His eyes narrowed as he saw his father's bland expression. "Why are you encouraging this? Shouldn't you be more discriminating when it comes to the potential mother of your grandchildren?"
"You're a man of eight -&-twenty who hasn't yet sired an heir. At this point, I'm not inclined to be overparticular about whom you marry all I ask is that you produce some grandchildren before your mother & I are too decrepit to pick them up." #keeper #romants

"I'm afraid I never ruin more than one young woman a night." His tone was a mockery of politeness. "A man has to draw the line somewhere." #romantsy #keeper

You have an epiphany: You are in 💙 with your best friend. He is all you have. If you lose him you lose the family that embraced you, raised you & saved you. If you lose him you are rudderless & alone. He asks you for help & you do everything to help him afraid your 💙 will disgust him. Then you are afraid that the 🌎 will harm him. How do you deal with an attraction and 💙 that challenges everything you believe about yourself? Surprising #keeper

Lady Brigitte Cavendish is the antithesis of an English debutante: She isn't looking for a husband, doesn't care what she wears, fills her dance card with fake names & discusses math with any fool who tries to talk to her. Lord Fox is the quintessential English gentleman: he loves to sport, dresses with flair & will wager on anything. Lord Fox has lead the charmed life always coming in 1st except academically. A wager sparks this 💙📖.

Medieval story which includes hand fasting, castles, Robert the Bruce and the sight. I am so in! Lynx is given Dumfries Castle to hold. He wants children and agreed to hand fast with the steward's daughter. She is fiercely Celtic and wants nothing to do with the Englishman. Betrayal and loyalty war on this amazing story. Enjoyed parallel ❤story of secondary characters. #keeper #romantsy #historical

Eugenia Snowe owns a governess registry & Ward Reeve needs a governess. She has been mourning her husband & has withdrawn from society until Ward bursts into her life & reawakens her. On the pretense of helping a client Eugenia's partner helps Ward kidnap her boss. Miscommunication causes stumbling blocks to happily ever after. Cameos of favorite characters from other James' novels are the cherry on top of this delicious cake. #keeper #romantsy

Will's story spans decades. He is an enigma. The story flashes forward and backward as it tries to explain how Will becomes a driver after loving and losing in war torn Japan. I liked the historical insights of British expatriates and their suffering in interment camps as well as natives forced to succumb or die. I enjoyed the comparison between his two women and their relationship. Not an easy read but worth the effort.
