Today I’m happy to be on the blog tour for Wilde in Love by Eloisa James. The first book in a new series set in the Georgian Period. Before we get to my review here is a little bit about Wilde in Love.
The first book in Eloisa James’s dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm-and introduces a large, eccentric family. Things are about to get Wilde . . .
Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks.
Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father’s castle, but just as he grasps that he’s not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty, Miss Willa Ffynche.
Willa presents the façade of a serene young lady to the world. Her love of books and bawdy jokes is purely for the delight of her intimate friends. She wants nothing to do with a man whose private life is splashed over every newspaper.
Alaric has never met a woman he wanted for his own . . . until he meets Willa. He’s never lost a battle. But a spirited woman like Willa isn’t going to make it easy . . .
A New York Times bestseller many times over, Eloisa James lives in New York City, where she is a Shakespeare professor (with an M.Phil. from Oxford). She is also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
I love to find new series to get my teeth into, and Eloisa James’ Wilde in Love is perfect! Full of laughs, love, friendship, clever plots and very enchanting.
Willa is a clever character who has her own mind and ideas. She decides that Alaric isn’t the one for her with his famous hero status, but of course you can’t help who you fall for.
I can see why this could be a good series and I’m eagerly anticipating book 2.
I’m giving Wilde in Love 4 out of 5 stars.
