Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
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.

    *Starred Review* Lady Joan Wilde has a passion for acting, but she is tired of playing damsels in distress. Just once Joan wants to be the hero, and now she has figured out a way to perform the title role in Hamlet in front of a real live audience. The downside to bringing her scheme to fruition is that she needs a little help from the impeccably proper Thaddeus Erskine Shaw, Viscount Greywick. Joan knows that Thaddeus, who has already been turned down by two of Joan's sisters, is in the market for a wife. Now, in exchange for his assistance in realizing her Shakespearean ambition, Joan promises to help him find the perfect bride-to-be, a demure lady with an unsullied reputation. That is, the exact opposite of Joan. With the latest swoon-worthy addition to her best-selling the Wildes of Lindow Castle series, RITA award-winning James (My Last Duchess, 2020) not only delivers another utterly beguiling, effervescently witty, and scintillatingly sensual love story in splendid homage to the Bard but also a fascinating mini-masterclass on Hamlet.
