    Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by JazzmenReview Copy from the PublisherWilde in love is the first tome of the « Wildes of Lindow Castle » series, written by Eloisa James whom I know from her series “Once upon a time”. I read four of them and I particularly liked When Beauty tamed the Beast, for a lot of reasons, but especially for its humor. That’s, once again, what characterizes Wilde in love and I always love very ...

    What a wonderful start to a new series! Lord Alaric Wilde aka Lord Wilde, author, adventurer and son of the Duke of Lindow is back in England after years of traveling. He was expecting a hot bath, a cup of tea and a quiet reunion with his family to mourn the death of his eldest brother but what he got was a mob of ladies clamoring to meet the infamous Lord Wilde. Unbeknownst to Alaric, someone has adapted and embellished his books into a play tit...

    Wilde in Love is the first book in The Wildes of Lindow Castle and it was a delightful romance that makes you appreciate that slowly developing relationship type of stories. The book starts off with our hero arriving in England after traveling overseas involving himself in a lot of adventures. Lord Alaric Wilde happens to be a successful writer. Unfortunately, his books have become so popular he has gotten so famous that it's become bothersome. W...

    I read Ms. James for the first time this January with her Seven Minutes in Heaven and I completely loved it! I had no doubt that I wanted to read her again, so when I heard about her next book coming out, Wilde in Love, I could not wait to read it. It has been in the back of my mind ever since and as soon as it showed up on my kindle, I started it. Wilde in Love and Ms. James did not disappoint me, I fell in love with the characters, especially t...

    Fantastic! This is Eloisa James at her best. I do hope that Parth and Lavinia get their story told, because I'm sure it's a great one!

    Lord Alaric, third son of a duke, is known more popularly in England as Lord Wilde. His travel books have made him famous but the play written about him has made him notorious. When he returns home, he is stalked by women everywhere. He is set up as a teen heartthrob. Well, and older women as well. But he is not impressed. These women know a facsimile of him, not the man who misses his oldest brother, the man who might just be ready to come home....

    Lord Alaric Wilde has been overseas for many years, avoiding home and memories of his deceased brother. While he's been away he's penned quite a few travelogues, and they've been published to fair success. What he doesn't know is that, in his absence, he's become the most celebrated man in England. Women have prints of his adventures posted on their walls, and steal bricks from the borders of his home as souvenirs. Alaric finds this infuriating, ...

    Advanced copy from Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Alaric and Willa were a different type of "society" couple and I appreciated that. They had their public personas and their private ones. And they tried to keep them separate. Neither of them asked for the publicity they were getting (Alaric from his travel writing and the unfortunate play written WITHOUT his permission, Willa with the untimely death of her parents fr...

    Duke's son Alaric Wilde has spent most of his adulthood exploring the far corners of the world and writing books--truthful, unsensationalized books--about his experiences. Now he has returned to England to find himself a sensation called Lord Wilde (an incorrect form of his name), based on his books and on a wildy popular play that purports to tell of his adventures in Africa. From the moment he appears at a house party at his family home, all of...

    Deeply amusing new series from Eloisa James -- I can't wait to see what's next for the Wilde family after this debut. Things I love about it: Willa and Lydia are intelligent, funny, women who are also good at the marriage mart. The improper behavior they indulge in is never thoughtlessly undertaken, and leaves a great deal in Willa's hands. I think this may be the only book I've ever read where a pet skunk is hugely important to the plot. All of ...

    I received this as an ARC from Edelweiss for an honest review. I think this might be my favorite Eloisa James. I've read all her books. She's one of the few authors that I'll read anything from. I REALLY enjoyed this one. I loved all the main characters as well as their side characters. Often in these romances, the conflict boils down to the fact that the main characters don't actually talk to each other, but this is NOT one of those romances. I ...
  • McKenzie
    Wilde in Love ranks among the best stories I've read this year. The chemistry between the characters is electric! There's humor and banter and whimsy. The female friendships are so positive and real, and the Wilde family dynamics are thoroughly charming. I can't wait for the next book in this series!!
  • Melody
    This was delightful, and I can't wait for the other couples' stories. I am not going to enjoy being patient.

    Eloisa James can always be counted out on write lovely, smart characters. Her latest book is no exception!
  • Michelle
    Pub date: Oct 2017A good Eloisa romance! I love it when the hero falls for the heroine first and has to woo her. But Willa is very resistant to Alaric's suit, especially because of his infamy (which is quite hilarious), and it's not until a problem arises that they have to pretend to be together. I loved Willa and her friends, and can't wait for their stories too. But I LOVED the Wilde family! Comparable to the Bridgerdons, I see a lovely series ...

    I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.Eloisa James is one of those romance writers who are an auto-buy for me-- I know she's going to serve funny, smart women and men, families you want to spend time with, and an excellent romance. This has all of these.Alaric Wilde is one of the Wilde children, all named after various historic warriors. With names like that, it was inevitable that one of them would run off to travel a...

    ARC review:This is a laugh out loud, sweet, sweet, super funny story! Alaric and Willa are both interesting characters, he is such a hero and so much everything she thinks she doesn't want, it's a pleasure to witness them falling for each other.And the whole family surounding them is amazing, I look forward to the next one already!
  • Melanie
    Eloisa James can do no wrong. The first in James' newest series, Wilde in Love is a delightful and romantic adventure that addresses the perils of fame — all in Georgian England! I will be impatiently waiting for the rest of the series.Thanks HarperCollins and Avon for the E-galley!
