“Wilder pulls out all the stops for this spellbinding novel of identity, passion, and fear... Once readers fall into X’s story, they’ll be desperate for the next installments.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
From the New York Times bestselling author of Alpha...
My name is Madame X.
My past is locked away.
My present confined to a gilded cage...
Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X wields culture and wit like a knife. But behind her sophisticated facade X is a woman adrift, trapped between a dangerous past she can’t remember and the protection of a seductive man who claims her body—and her soul.
Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for the safety of her tower penthouse, she also yearns to escape. But X has never known anything or anyone else—until he came along…

Dark and twisted!
This is one of those books that I will not tell you what it is about. I went in not knowing anything about the story line and I'm so glad I did. There are just some books you gotta just dive in and this is one of them. What you do need to know is that it's dark, the heroine is in a pretty twisted situation and I don't even know who the true Hero is in the story. It is not a safe read and not for the faint of heart.
I gave this 5 stars because I was just enthralled with what was happening and was trying to figure out what the true story is, all the while hating some of the things happening. I didn't figure it out and I'm not even happy with how it ended, yet the author sucked me in! It is not a standalone and part of me is scared with how book 2 might end, but you can bet I will be reading it. ARC provided by NetGalley.
Mysterious + Dark & Twisty
I read this in its entirety within a few hours. For a "jaded" reader this was quite the novelty.
Very little was proposed or even alluded to. Full of feints and proprietary (j'adore).
Realize this is a trilogy- I liked the teaser for the second at the end of this one. While I do enjoy a little tease I do expect an bit more explanation in Books 2-3.
Madam X #1
I love the way JW writes. She grabs you at the first page and you just hang on for the ride. No matter how bizarre the plot she makes you believe. I can't wait for the ending, yet I put it down because I don't want it to be over. That being said, next time I'll check before purchasing a book of hers. I'm an all or nothing kind of reader and I HATE cliffhangers!
