    One thought on “Too Wilde to Wed”

    1. ARC provided by Edelweiss and Publisher in exchange for an honest review.I loved the first half of this book/romance. But the second half was disappointing, the heroine evolved into someone different from the first half. The first half was sweet, with chemistry between the two MC. Second half it's like this modern woman took her place. Very sexual and not sure of her feelings for the hero, determined to do her own thing (I love strong woman but she came across as muddled/confused and wishy washy [...]

    2. After reading the "excerpt" on Cosmopolitan's website with the cover reveal, I am done with Eloisa James. The teaser was just a long sex scene. No romance, just sex amped up for contemporary readers with pussy, balls, and cocks galore. I'm not hating here, but that isn't for me. This is a note to myself that I won't be reading her newer work. I draw the line at that level of steam. I read more for the romance and sex scenes are just secondary. It's just my preference. All that said, the covers f [...]

    3. This is the second book in Eloisa James' newest series The Wildes of Lindow Castle and although it can be read as a standalone it definitely helps to read the first book Wilde in Love since, North and Diana's story started there as well.This one starts two years after the first book, North has arrived back from the Revolutionary war in the Americas and Diana has been living in the Wildes residence during the time he was away. Everyone in polite society has apparently painted North as the villain [...]

    4. I received this as a digital ARC from Edelweiss for an honest review.I've read all of James' books. She's one of my favorite romance writers. But I have to be honest, this is probably my least favorite. This book felt like it was an early draft. I understand that grammatical errors and such appear in ARCs and I certainly overlook those. This book didn't have those. The wording on many things was just awkward and felt unfinished. This felt like maybe a 2nd draft. Do things change THAT much betwee [...]

    5. I mostly liked this, though I got frustrated with Diana through the second half of the book. She morphed into someone pretty well unrecognizable. I couldn’t even chalk it up to character development, because it just felt so OUT of character. On the other hand, I ADORED North. I would have liked to see a little more of him overcoming his demons (I felt like his ‘recovery’ was never really explained well), but for the most part, he was just what I want in a hero.

    6. This felt like two different books pasted together, and don't get me started on that awful ending. Diana started out okay, but then she jaunts off to become a barmaid in Manchester? And girl, just be a damn duchess. She drove me nuts.

    7. Eloisa James continues her Wildes of Lindow Castle series with Too Wilde to Wed. Admittedly, the first book in the series Wilde in Love was enjoyable, but not my cup of tea. Still, I was enchanted by James' writing and the side characters. I knew that I had to find out how the other stories turned out. The first half of this book is gorgeous. Diana and North reunite and talk through their complicated past. Their conversations are mature, intimate, honest, and just the right amount of flirty. The [...]

    8. I had a suspicion when I read Wilde in Love that Too Wilde to Wed has only confirmed for me. In the Wildes, James has written a family that rivals the Bridgertons and that is saying a lot for me. At the end of Wilde in Love, readers will remember that Diana Belgrave fled her betrothal party where her betrothed was a duke. A proper Georgian lady simply doesn't leave a duke, so why did she do it? Too Wilde to Wed has your answers. Diana and North are both damaged in their own way, and watching the [...]

    9. So many chuckles, giggles and Aww so sweet moments in this second Wilde novel!! I received an advance copy of this from Edelweiss for an honest review and even though it doesn't publish until MAY, I could NOT resist reading North and Diana's story, right now! I knew from the end of Wilde in Love that Diana has acquired a child. Oh MY!!!This story was SO much better than the first in the series! North may be my new favorite book boyfriend, sigh. The thing is they are just so HONEST with each othe [...]

    10. Diana fled her engagement to the duke's heir, who then took a regiment to the American colonies. When North returned, he found Diana and her young nephew ensconsed at the family castle, but not as guests; instead, Diana is acting as governess. She likes to work and would hate being a duchess. This is a problem because they find themselves falling in love again, this time with the reality of each other.Enjoyable, but not quite as good as the first in the series.

    11. Eloisa James has such talent and skill as a writer that I love her books even when I'm not crazy about the main characters. Too Wilde to Wed presented two leads who were once engaged but Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde (aka North) was jilted - harshly - by his reluctant fiance Diana Belgrave. He went off to help fight the Revolutionary War and she, now cut off from her family, became a governess for North's niece. North returns to discover Diana ensconced in his home as a servant and is outraged. [...]

    12. 4.5 stars. I received an ARC from Edelweiss, and thrilled that I downloaded it and read it. I adored both North and Diana. I enjoyed this much more than the first book in the series! Possibly because I like the second chance at love trope, but I just really enjoyed North and Diana's relationship.

    13. Pub date: May 2018I was crazy about the first half of this book: I was giggling, sighing, and even clapping to myself (you know the mini one, where it’s silent and you’re completely unaware of doing it and look like a maniac.) I loved Diana for her forthrightness and her humor, and North for his steadfastness and for his awesome family. The second half, where the complications crop up between the couple, got a little less happy, but anytime the Wildes were in the picture was hilarious, which [...]

    14. A delightful entry in Eloisa James' The Wilds of Lindow Castle. This story follows Diana and North who are secondary characters in book 1. Diana jilted North unexpectedly at end of the the last novel. James wonderfully reveals why Diana did this and how these two might go on with their lives.

    15. 4.6 love North and Diana. Artie and Godfrey are cuties. Glad for Mrs. Fritzy :-) Can't wait for Laviana story

    16. There's a lovely slow burn to this one, mainly because we know the crux of the conflict from the first book in the series. North intended to marry Diana, only to have her mysteriously flee and abandon her engagement. At the very end of book one we found out that (a) North has bought a commission in the Americas and (b) Diana is now living with a child, presumably hers. There is so much for me to love about this one, from Diana's rediscovered sense of self (especially as she chastises North for d [...]

    17. This book was provided by the publisher (via Edelweiss) for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.After reading Wilde in Love and immediately falling in love with James's writing and story, I couldn't resist reading Too Wilde to Wed early and sharing my thoughts. While I will certainly continue reading books in this series, this one didn't live up to the first book.I felt like I read two different stories. The first half [...]
