A Great Read!

Lady Esme Rawlings-known to the ton as Infamous Esme-has a scandalous past but she made a promise to her late husband that she will become respectable for their coming baby's sake. Lady Beatrix Lennox is the object of the ton's gossip due to her wild and scandalous ways. Her own father has termed her a vixen! Countess Helene Godwin is tired of her husband's faithless behaviour and with the encouragement of Beatrix decides to take a lover and publicly cuckold him. Stephen Fairfax-Lacy, a member of Parliament, is tired of the business of looking for a wife. What he needs is a mistress, preferably a married, less experienced lady. He doesn't bargain on being attracted to the outgoing Lady Beatrix. Sebastian Bonnington, a wealthy marquess, is employed anonymously by Esme as a gardener. He is also secretly her lover and wants to marry her though she does not want to get married. Can he change her mind? Will Lord Godwin be goaded into divorcing Helene as she hopes? ***REVIEW:Not your typical romance where there is only one heroine and one hero. This book offers three equally interesting heroines and two likable heroes. Ms. James artfully illustrates with this book that not everyone in Victorian England was prim and proper. I'd definately read this book again and can't wait to read more of her books. Reviewed by: Christy of Christy's Book Reviews

Enjoying the characters, but not the consistency

Since this is the 3rd book in the series, we tend to know a lot about the supporting cast, and in this case Fairfax-Lacy, our hero. In the first in the series, our hero is introduced as the cousin of Camden. They go in to great detail about their time spent together as "children". However, if we are to believe that Fairfax-Lacy is 43 years old, then when Camden was a teen, he would have been over 18 and hardly spending his days fishing and hiding from a young, annoying, girl. The inconsistency bothers me. It seems he has been aged many years in order to make this story work, and for me it just doesn't work.
I really enjoyed the first 2 books in this series, but I'm having a hard time believing that this character is the same one we read about in Duchess in Love.

    Ok

    As the third book in a series, this helped close the loop on or advanced some storylines. As a standalone book, it was very mediocre. The main characters werent really the main characters. Each was annoying in his or her own way. Their storyline wasnt all that interesting. Overall, disappointing.

    I want to make apologize for listening to others I made someone

    I want to make apologize for listening to others I made someone coments before even reading the two book myself I was so suprise that so many people gave them bad reviews I felt eveyone can't be wronge but starte reading a Affair before Xmas and the one almost like the fable a princess & pea you are a good writer and I have read over 800 of these book by differnt authors and I understand where you are going with these books and snice I have read almost all of your books I have found none that I felt were a waste of time. One thing I have learn about a good writer is that if that person is good then if it takes a year to print another book fans will be waitng. once a you are a wonderful writer AND PLEASE DON'T GO ON OTHERS COMMENTS BEFORE YOU READ THE BOOKS.

    Not my favorite characters

    Eloisa James delivered a very typical romance but I was unable to find a strong attachment with the characters. The Heroine is spoiled and unloveable and Fairfax-Lacy is weak, at least in the eyes of his paramour. A Wild Pursuit is a good rainy day read but don't count on keeping it around.
