Overview


Generations ago, the Aincourt family was given a title and land for their loyalty to the king. But the former abbey they received came with a price—a curse that no family member would ever know happiness.

Devin Aincourt, Earl of Ravenscar, makes no apologies for who he is—a drinker, a womanizer, a gambler. Having been cast aside by his disapproving father years before, Dev is content to live out his cursed life in this hedonistic manner. Until his mother asks him to make a bold move to restore the family name and fortune: marry a rich American heiress.

Believing it will be a marriage in name only, Dev agrees to marry Miranda. But he never imagined that this feisty, unconventional foreigner would have plans of her own: to restore Blackwater, the old abbey, to its former glory, to extricate Dev from the clutches of a devious mistress and to win his heart for her own. All while risking her own life to an unknown enemy.

For Dev and Miranda, love may be the most lasting curse of all.

    Exciting historical romance

    His family demands English Earl Devin Ainscourt marry an heiress to bring needed money into the estate and to produce an heir. They point out that due to his numerous scandals no English family will accept Devin. His mother says that a visiting wealthy American wants his daughter to wed an aristocrat. Devin rejects the idea, but agrees to meet the ugly American at dinner. <P>Her father asks Miranda Upshaw to at least meet the English noble although she rejects the idea of marrying anyone for anything but love. She admits she enjoys the concept of restoring his old house and would like to see her stepsister have a debut in a few years, but not at the cost of marriage. Still Miranda agrees to meet the Earl at his mother¿s dinner party. <P>A drunken Devin fails to attend his mother¿s dinner party, but meets Miranda when she rescues him from street thugs. He proposes, but Miranda rejects his marriage offer. However, she sees a caring side to him and offers a marriage of convenience that he accepts. They soon fall in love, but unbeknownst to both of them they share a past that once revealed will destroy any hope for happiness between them. <P> Historical romance readers will enjoy this entertaining tale due to the heroic Miranda who uses modern business techniques to go after what she wants, which changes from renovation to Devin. The story line is loaded with action and several twists though some readers might feel that there are to many coincidences connecting the cast. Still readers will delight in Candace Camp¿s engaging novel. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Romance of the Century

    I first picked up a copy of 'So Wild a Heart' at my local library and immediately fell in love with it. I love the fact that the heroin is somebody who plans what she wants and does it, especially in a time when women were considered inferior. The strong, but opposite personalities of both Devin and Miranda give the book a sensational plot and make it truly original. I loved the book so much that I read the entire thing in one night.

    Heroine saves Hero from himself...But who will save her?

    I was debating whether to give this book three stars or two stars...I decided on two stars because Candace Camp tends to be an author whose characters bring humor and joy into my life on a consistent basis...and I was very, very disappointed with this hero. Even the wonderful heroine of this book, Miranda, could not make up for the woeful hero of this tale...I just couldn't see WHY she married him, why she loved him, and WHY she went through such pains to save him from his DEPLORABLE judgment, choices and lifestyle. All I could figure was that she felt sorry for him because despite his past actions he had a 'good heart.' I felt sorry for him too...somewhat...but in the end he hasn't changed any, he just had a run of good luck that started when he met Miranda. He's still irresponsible, unwilling to take control of his own life and finances, and he's still letting others take care of him instead of taking care of himself. The only difference is the people in his life at the end are much better people that those in his life at the start of the book. But really, he doesn't deserve the credit. All in all, I thought Miranda deserved much better...I know I did. For those of you who like strong heroes¿skip this one. If, however, you like insipid boys that let life happen to them instead of taking control of their destiny... then this book is for you!
