Lady Cecily Francis is resigned to become the wife of Lord Drury, the man she suspects her sister is pining for. But upon her first scandalous encounter with the exotic Earl of Augustine-the American whom everyone is whispering about- Cecily is intrigued by the possibility of a more exciting life. If only she could contrive some way to marry the unconventional earl instead....

Around town he's known as Earl Savage. Although he inherited his title legitimately-and, with it, responsibility for his three half sisters-Augustine is half American and part Iroquois. He can't wait to settle his father's estate, marry his sisters off, and return to his native soil. Until charming Lady Cecily has him considering a prolonged stay in England...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A part-Iroquois nobleman inherits an earldom and the guardianship of his half-sisters in Wildes's strong Regency series starter. From their very first encounter, the idealistic Lady Cecily Francis, daughter of the duke of Eddington, and Jonathan Bourne, the unconventional and exotically biracial new earl of Augustine, are caught up in a scandalously public exchange of whispers and caresses. Though he hates London and longs to return to America, Augustine is uncontrollably attracted to the very English Lady Cecily and soon joins her scheme to prevent her expected marriage to dull Lord Drury. Given the historical era, it's not surprising that "sexy savage" stereotypes abound ("He was... untamed. Exotic. Perhaps even uncivilized"), but Wildes (Our Wicked Mistake) perpetuates them rather than undermining them. Despite this failing, readers will love the strong cast of intriguing supporting characters and the passionate and well-balanced central romance. (May)
