Description

In a sparkling new series filled with irresistible charm and sizzling romance, award-winning author Isabella Bradford introduces us to the eldest of three Wylder sisters—unruly country girls whose passion for life leaves their London suitors breathless.
 
Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.
 
But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March’s broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?

From the Paperback edition.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jun 11, 2012 – Bradford (a new pseudonym for longtime romance author Susan Scott) enlivens 18th-century arranged marriages with lust at first sight for the first Wylder Sisters romance. Lady Charlotte Wylder and James “March” FitzCharles, duke of Marchbourne, have been betrothed since childhood. Though their first meeting, complete with Charlotte rescuing a cat from a tree, reveals Charlotte’s hoydenish behavior, March is enchanted by his witty and unconventional bride-to-be. A brief private encounter becomes the subject of gossip, so March and Charlotte wed quickly to avoid scandal. Their chance at happiness is marred by March’s memories of his parents’ fractured relationship, leaving it up to Charlotte to balance playing the role of duchess, exercising her independence, and reassuring her husband that he doesn’t share his father’s less savory qualities. This well-plotted novel is steeped in realism, with meticulous attention to historical detail that never overwhelms the romantic tension.

Customer Reviews

Takes Historical romance to a new level

The story is so contrived where as the hero is so guilt ridden he can't see what a fool he is being. Also a female lead who is so frustratingly pathetic that she actually believes the fault to be hers.
Overall frustratingly backwards, what the main characters have conflict with is a laughable cause to the modern reader.
If buying be prepared for continues eye rolling.

Horrible

Don't waste your time or especially your money!!! Finished it but only because I thought surely it can't get any worse, it did.
