Overview


Victorian England is about to go wild…

Lady Ophelia longs to be independent, daring and bold, but her mother’s illness has stolen the last of her creative fire. Condemned to an isolated country cottage after the death of her idealistic father, she and her mother are forsaken by family and all of society. Disappointed by those she once trusted, Lady Ophelia lovingly nurses her dying mother knowing that her own dreams of being an artist will never be realized. That is until she meets a devilish aristocrat who reawakens her desire to be wild.

Viscount Stark has never known love. Reputed to be a rebel and a rake by all, at heart he is anything but. When he meets Lady Ophelia, he is struck by her haunting presence, dignity, and honor. Will he continue to play his wicked games and risk ruining the last of Lady Ophelia’s wounded heart? Or will he dare to be the gentleman he always wanted to be and unveil a love he never thought possible?

This is a charity novella for Hospice with the goal of raising $10,000 in donations from the profits.

    We all read, whether it¿s for learning purposes or entertainment

    We all read, whether it’s for learning purposes or entertainment: magazines, articles, pamphlets, books, and more. For entertainment we read what appeals to us the most; romance, thriller, sci-fi, mystery, or history. Sometimes a book can make the reader laugh, cry, or even scream at the pages. A book can leave a reader wanting more or wishing they never began it to begin with. There are also the books in between. A good book has you reading the same author again. A great book had you keeping it on the favorite shelf and recommending it to others. Then there is the rarity book that leaves an impact on you that is indescribable. A book that reaches into your heart and soul and leaves its mark. A book that has you smiling, laughing, crying, fearful, joyful, and loving like you are the character. Like you are the person they were writing for. Lady Wild is that book for me. Maire Claremont brings her characters to life with every heartfelt word. The love they have for each other and the fear they have because of that love has you at the edge of your seat and feeling their pain. Ms. Claremont pours her soul into her writing every time she writes. This time I believe she left a piece of her heart as well. This book was written to raise money for Hospice in the memory of Ms. Claremont’s mother and you can feel the love she had for her in every word, every sentence and every page, chapter by chapter a bond is formed and leaves you no option but to feel it too. I cannot express how this book has touched me like no other book has before. I highly recommend this to read and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Lady Wild is a perfect example of a novella that delivers withou

    Lady Wild is a perfect example of a novella that delivers without the story ever falling flat or feeling rushed. The story was funny and charming, romantic and emotional. Above all, it's another example of great writing from Maire Claremont. This story does not disappoint.

    Honest to its plot, the story doesn't gloss over the emotional journey of coping with the death of a family member and for that I loved the story even more. But above all, love in all its shapes and sizes, was the character I admired most. Between the swoon worthy love shared between Ophelia and Andrew, to that between Andrew and Lady Darlington, even the very touching mother/daughter relationship, love shined in this story.

    I did wish that we see more of what made Andrew the supposed rake that he was meant to be. For all of his assurances, he had a big heart and was a true romantic and I never saw him as cold or rakish as he or other characters thought him to be. I very much look forward to reading more about Lord Vane.

    This story is about fate and love bringing two people together,

    This story is about fate and love bringing two people together, and learning to tear down the walls and trust in that fate and love. It’s amazing how love can make a person realize how strong and independent they really are. Ophelia and Andrew come together under very sad circumstances but are shown how to live and love by a dying woman, Lady Darlington, Ophelia’s mother. Ms. Claremont does not shy away from the reality of death and the emotions that accompany it. While this story does have an undercurrent of sadness there is happiness and laughs. I adore Ophelia’s strong personality and willingness to be the woman she wants to be. Andrew is a true sweetheart and underneath the armor of being the rogue he is a romantic. I loved how he truly loved Lady Darlington and wanted her time in London to be memorable not only for herself but for her daughter. Oh and I have to note, Marcus, Lord Vane is quite the dark mysterious character and I am look forward to his book
