    A witty, yet emotional 4.5 stars. This series has been consistently good for me, (and that is not always the case with Eloisa James: some of her Fairytales novels were horrible, some wonderful) and I am loving the whole crazy Wilde family. They are totally random and probably way too ...

    For me this series is the perfect combination of flawed quirky characters and steam. I have thoroughly enjoyed each book and look forward to the next one. We met Betsy and Jeremy in a previous book. And of course there is so much more to them behind they veneers they?ve presented...

    Love these Wildes. This is Betsy's (Lady Boadicea Wilde) story. With 8 older brothers, Betsy learned how to do everything they could, but by the age of 14, all she wanted was a BFF. She talked her father and step mother into sending her to a ladies Seminary, where she was at first subj...

    It did take me a little while to get into this book but then I found it very engaging. Lady Boadicea Wilde ( Betsy) presented a very conventional face to society but her true self wanted an adventure. She rebelled against the restrictions placed on women. Also Betsy wanted to distance ...

    Hero has ptsd. Heroine doesn?t want to be like her mother who ran off when she was a child. There?s a love triangle. The love triangle took way too long to resolve. It wasn?t a bad historical romance, but it wasn?t my thing. It just took a long time to get to the roma...

    Another wonderful installment to a really great series, I absolutely loved Say No to the Duke. I'll admit I was hoping for more of a woman disguised as a man, mistaken identities hijinks type of book, but what I got instead was so much better. I love how REAL Betsy and Jeremy are, ...

    I have been reading Eloisa James books for almost two decades . She writes historical romance like no other. Her books are fun, sexy with witty and snarky banter . Quirky , smart and likeable main and secondary characters. Say No to the Duke is another win for Ms. James. Thanks...

    Can't wait! Jeremy and Betsy's scene in the last book had me hooked and we are not even on Chapter 1. ...

    A fan of Ms. Eloisa James. She didn't disappoint with this read and I did enjoy this last in the Wildes of Lindow Castle series. Although Susan Duerdan narration can sometimes irk me, she did okay with this narration and I enjoyed finally Lady Betsy Wildes story of the series. 4....

    I have enjoyed all of the previous books and was so excited to get to this one. I love love loved Betsy and Jeremy. She?s sassy and he?s gruff and their button pushing was fantastic. They had great chemistry and I just adored how they both truly saw the other. As always, Aunt K...

    Lady Betsy Wilde has had a successful first season by any definition, culminating in several marriage proposals, even one from a future duke. Plagued by her mother's scandal of leaving her father, a duke, Betsy has been determined to prove she's nothing like that, even at the cost of h...

    I tried not to picture them too much, I did like that it was 1780s, but the wigs, ugh, the wigs, lol. Betsy has done her best to put on the persona of the good girl persona, the perfect society girl, the perfect bride to be. All to wash away the stigma of her mother running away wit...

    I am always guaranteed an enjoyable, fun read from Eloisa James and this book does not disappoint. The characters had great dialogue, flawed but likeable, and the story was entertaining. PTSD due to experiences in war and the affects on the individual and their family was portrayed. Wh...

    A touch of unessesarily long melodrama at the end. But I'm so satisfied I don't even care! 5 stars ...

    August 4, 2018: I can?t wait for this book! 2019 is too far away! And we all know one night is one too many and yet entirely not enough at the same time. June 29, 2019: Pretty good. They fall in love by hanging out in the billiards room. Although she is courted by many gentleme...

    Love these Wildes. This is Betsy's (Lady Boadicea Wilde) story. With 8 older brothers, Betsy learned how to do everything they could, but by the age of 14, all she wanted was a BFF. She talked her father and step mother into sending her to a ladies Seminary, where she was at first subj...

    It did take me a little while to get into this book but then I found it very engaging. Lady Boadicea Wilde ( Betsy) presented a very conventional face to society but her true self wanted an adventure. She rebelled against the restrictions placed on women. Also Betsy wanted to distance ...
