A shy wallflower meets her dream man—or does she?—in the next book in New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James' Wildes of Lindow series. Miss Viola Astley is short, round, and painfully shy; she can't possibly compete with her exquisite step-sister Joan, daughter of the Duke of Lindow. The mere idea of their debut ball makes Viola feel nauseated—until she meets a quiet vicar. But just when she catches his attention, her reputation is compromised by a duke. Devin Lucas Augustus Elstan, Duke of Wynter, will stop at nothing to marry Viola, including marrying a woman whom he knows to be in love with another man. A vicar, no less. Devin knows he's no saint, but he's used to conquest, and he's determined to win Viola's heart. Viola has already said Yes to his proposal, but now he wants her unruly heart...and he won't accept No for an answer.

*Starred Review* Could the cure for uncontrollably shy Viola Astley's societal nausea be a quietly charming vicar? That is exactly what Viola believes after meeting David Marlowe, who is serving as the new vicar for her stepfather, the Duke of Lindow. Being around David leaves Viola feeling calm and cosseted, which as far as she is concerned is the closest thing to love that she has ever experienced. Now, just as Viola is ready to commit her romantic future to David, she unexpectedly encounters Devin Lucas Augustus Elstan, Duke of Wynter. Unlike her divine vicar, Devin definitely gives Viola some internal distress, but, much to Viola's surprise, it isn't her stomach that is in turmoil around the devilishly desirable Devin, but rather her heart. RITA Awardâwinning and best-selling James (Say No to the Duke, 2019) continues her winsomely winning literary streak with another brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed addition in her Wildes of Lindow Castle series. Once again, James expertly calibrates the perfect ratio of exuberant wit to elegant sensuality, and the end result is a romance worth celebrating. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
