I was hesitant about this book at first because I'd read the one previous and I thought North a bit too oblivious and stuffy and I wished Diana would simply speak up if the wedding wasn't what she wanted.
I'm so pleased to note that North is much more approachable and down-to-earth in Too Wilde to Wed and of course they all had their Reasons and those Reasons are Good.
Not only did I like Diana and North much more in this book, but it was just also a lovely, sweet book in all the ways. North is suffering from PTSD and it made me melt when Diana would stay up and keep him company, offering him honey toast. Despite all that is right and goes well, the conflict is real and I was left wondering how they would resolve it. Without giving away spoilers, I'm happy to say that the way they resolved it was wonderful and not at all expected.
I thoroughly enjoyed Too Wilde to Wed, would recommend it, and can't wait for the next Wilde to fall.
No one is more surprised than Lord North when he returns from war to find his ex-fiancee in his ancestral home...working as a governess in a sexy, fiery new Wildes of Lindow Castle romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James...
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.
