    A reviewer

    The beautiful and penniless Lady Portia Denning is traveling to the Yorkshire estates of the Earl of Moreton when her coach breaks down, her coachman takes off, and to make matters worse, a dark, handsome rogue nearly runs her over, splashes her with mud, and then sweeps her off her feet and onto his horse. She soon discovers the handsome bounder is the Earl of Moreton, the very gentleman her family insists she wed. She is more than determined to not marry him. Known as the 'Mad' Earl of Moreton, Heath has lived with the scandal of family madness and is determined never to marry. When he discovers that his and Portia's grandmothers are arranging a marriage between them, he is livid. An emotional struggle of wills and physical desire ensue between the passionate couple. Heath is realizing the 'mud pie' he discovered on the road is extremely desirable. Portia attempts to avoid the dark, handsome Heath, but no matter how she tries, her attraction builds. When Portia becomes lost in a storm while riding, she shelters at the hunting lodge on the estate. Heath rides out to find her. Discovering her in his retreat, he is disturbed when they have no choice but to spend the night. A night that heats up with intense passion that can no longer be denied, and they make love. The following morning Heath informs Portia that even though he has taken her innocence, he will not marry her. Realizing he is too wicked to tame, angry and hurt she leaves the estate to return home, penniless and vulnerable to the evil businessman Simon Oliver. When longtime secrets are revealed, Heath realizes he loves Portia and longs to win her love and marry her, but will it be too late? Too Wicked to Tame is a wickedly pleasurable read. Sophie Jordan is one of the best newer romance authors with the talent to write romance that sizzles with desire and passion.

    Sophie proves her worth in historical romance

    What a terrific follow up to Sophie Jordan's debut. Too Wicked to Tame is a delight, fast-paced read with full, vivacious characters, a unique plot and an ending that gives one the 'awe' of a satisfying ending. Her descriptions, dialogue and storyline is one that will have you rooting for the characters the entire book through! I can't wait to see what Ms. Jordan gives us next. I can only hope it's soon!

    A Mesmerizing Must-Read!

    Lady Portia Derring does not wish to marry. Then again, neither does the Earl of Moreton, and both of them have very good reason to avoid the shackles of matrimony. Portia cares nothing for love, wanting only the freedom her mother enjoys, and Heath has vowed never to wed, never to sire an heir, and thus, never to inflict his family¿s madness on another. But their grandmothers have schemed to get them together, and so Portia departs London for the chilly landscape of Yorkshire, to stay with the Moreton clan and tempt the earl into changing his mind. The earl quickly finds himself bewitched¿and irritated beyond measure¿and so repeatedly asks Portia to leave. Yet relieved to be away from her family¿s constant bullying, to be left to her own devices, free to roam the Moreton library at will, Portia is very content to stay. The pair of them butt heads at every turn, and sexual tension begins to slowly mount, moving them inexorably towards a point of no return. But just when the outcome seems inevitable, a little twist changes everything. With beautifully drawn characters, vivid description, and sensuous details, Sophie Jordan has penned a thrillingly satisfying novel that will leave you breathless with anticipation while wanting to savor every bit.

    A wonderfully sexy romance!

    Once again Sophie Jordan steps out of the rarified world on the ton in a wonderful story of two people who have given up any hope of happiness, only to find love. Portia is the penniless sister of a duke who would marry her off to the devil himself if the price was right. She wants nothing to do with marriage which in her experience is one step away from imprisonment. Heath is the victim of a family curse which makes marriage impossible, especially to a lady like Portia. And yet when he rescues her on the road in a bitter storm, the need to tempt her is irresistible¿and tempt her he does. For the first time in her life, Portia feels desire for a man, and knowing Heath is reckless and dangerous only fuels the attraction. Although nothing technically happens between them, they see in each other a passion that can never be and they part, never to meet again. Or so they both assume. When they meet again, Heath¿s outrage at what he sees as Portia¿s plot to marry him backfires. Instead of driving her away, his insistence that he will never marry her suggests to Portia a way to avoid the humiliation of another season of husband hunting in London. Soon, however, they must deal with the undeniable attraction that could ruin both of their lives. The characters in the story are especially compelling. Portia is a complex mix of independence and vulnerability, while Heath hides a deep sadness under an exterior of arrogance and anger. Even the secondary characters are multi-faceted people who do more than act as a background to the heroine and hero. While most regency romances tend to focus on social conventions of the time, in Ms. Jordan¿s story the main characters have been badly damaged by their respective family situations and as a result live on the edge of polite society. Ms. Jordan¿s story is more in the spirit of a Bronte than Ms. Austin, where raging passions are a curse rather than a blessing and love seems like an impossible dream. Still, this a romance and the final resolution is even more satisfactory because the heroine and hero have had such a transformational journey. Too Wicked to Tame is a beautifully written book historical readers won¿t want to miss!
