They had great chemistry and still managed to have a wonderful romance despite the messiness of the whole situation they were thrust into. This book is a comedy of errors worthy of Shakespeare, and it all takes place at the country estate of Infamous Esme, Lady Rawlings.
Will be reading the other 3 around these characters ASAP! And it went on and on Beatrix, with her brazen suggestions and irresistibly sensuous allure, couldn’t be more different from the earl’s ideal future bride.
A WILD PURSUIT
So, this isn’t really historical romance. Benedick Stephen is tired of his life, which up til now has been his seat in Parliament. She may be used to being on top in affairs of the heart, but that will soon change.
I truly think that if these two could have uames more time Bea and Stephen this book would have rated even higher for me. I was worried about the angst Being a fan of Shakespeare, I especially loved three ending scenes.
Nobody can control him. Now onto Your Wicked Ways! Dec 07, Vina Raintree rated it it was amazing Shelves: However, a great read nonetheless. That was too strong. I was not sure after finishing this book whether to file it under historical romance or science fiction-fantasy.
Her eyes seemed to be speaking jamea. It is a testament to the writing skill of James that she pulls it off so effortlessly. He was waiting for a reply so she shrugged. But I’m not much good at writing truly villainous types — and how did Sebastian become so great if his mother was a wipd horror?
That scene was wonderfully done and I legitimately cried reading it, it was so wonderfully sweet and heartwarming. Steph Beatrix and Stephen were two wonderfully rich characters and I loved getting to know eloisx. The conclusion of Esme and Sebastian should of been a novella.
A Wild Pursuit by Eloisa James
Sep 24, Ro rated it it was ok. On pageI write jqmes the poet Stephen Barnfield, and in my historical note I refer to him correctly as Richard Barnfield.
The author did a wonderful job of bringing it to a realistic conclusion even with the scandals from the other 2 books. I always enjoy Eloisa James’ writing. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Perhaps it is because the book is less than half their story? I got a bit dizzy by the end.
It elojsa almost too much to bear. Apr 04, Claire rated it did not like it. Lady Esme Rawlings has made a decision. Quotes from A Wild Pursuit.
But Esme is among friends, and some of them are unexpected. Alot going on in this book. It allowed James to focus more on the relationships and emotions of her characters.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I like the characters and enjoyed reading the next installment in the lives of these duchesses, but did find that I skipped a few pages here and there to get to “the good parts”.
I mean to intoxicate you and torment you so that you know jamse how I feel about you. The friendships are great and there are cool self-realizations for the wonderful female characters and lots of fun schemes and plots, mostly centered around poor St So, this isn’t really historical romance.
In contrast, Esme’s houseguest, Stephen Fairfax-Lacy, seeks a little scandal, but not so much that his Parliamentary career would be put in jeopardy—which rules out a tryst with the dramatically ruined minx Lady Bea, another of Esme’s guests. It could have been better in many ways, but what I got of the primary romance was great except for the stupid fake relationships that popped up along the way, it got a little silly there with jamfs.
