From the Back Cover
New York Times Bestselling Author Eloisa James returns with the second in her fun and flirtatious Wildes of Lindow Castle series . . .
The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde—known to his friends as North—left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he’s notorious: polite society has ruled him “too wild to wed.”
Diana never meant to tarnish North’s reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle. Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child’s father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret.
When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.
Yet North is returning a hardened warrior—and this is one battle he’s determined to win.
He wants Diana, and he’ll risk everything to call her his own.

One thing I have to comment on is the word 'partner'. I also read this in another Historical the other day and it's being increasingly used. This is a very 21st century word for a couple -husband/wife, etc and I don't think it belongs in a true Historical. It was certainly not in use when I married. Last century - a million years ago...! (1982) LOL. I do like to feel I'm in the time period being written about (1780) and that word just throws me out of it - I know it's politically correct in today's society, but I like the fact I have a 'husband'. Anyway I enjoyed this book, read it in one day and didn't want to put it down, so it gets 5 stars from me. ❤
This friends to lovers story is a real page turner. North and Diana are clearly perfect for each other if they would only acknowledge that fact, but put their mutual attraction aside and there is more than enough going on with minor characters to ensure that the story keeps on ticking.
I loved the way that Diana’s changed circumstances allowed her to relax and reveal her real self without fear of recrimination, and that this change allowed North to see the woman behind the painted mask that he’d first met. Of course their story has lumps and bumps along the way, but that was what made this story so compelling for me. One minute I was smiling or silently chuckling to myself and the next I was holding my breath and hoping that some sort of solution would present itself to them.
As the second in the series this story ties in nicely though it also stands alone well. For light, feel-good reading regardless of whether you like historicals or contemporary, the characters and the pace of this story make it a perfect choice.
Anyone who has cared for small children will have déjà vu in the opening scene with mashed vegetables on the carpet and an overturned potty. Diana is a governess to two small children. Little Godfrey belongs to Diana and the reason for her broken engagement. After being abandoned by her mother, Diana has no choice but to work to support little Godfrey. The other child, a strong minded two year old is included to entertain us with toddler antics.
Surrounded by a supportive family, all is going well for Diana until North Wilde, the ex fiancé, returns to find everyone thinks he is Godfrey’s father. The author has fun with the big teasing family and the cartoons about North’s immorality. While only two years have passed North and Diana are now different people, less fashionable and more damaged. The author explores the fake selves people bring out during courtships as well as the pain of losing a sibling. Despite some deep elements this is a light hearted book full of the human moments that make Eloisa James so very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
