This book was published as Lady Wild under Máire Claremont but several chapters and extra content has been added to it in the brand new version. I hope you enjoy Andrew and Ophelia as much as I do!

This was a very heartbreaking, yet uplifting story. Ophelia's mother was dying from a long illness, and they were living in poverty, as Ophelia's stepbrother had essentially disowned them once their father died. Andrew came upon Ophelia swirling in the water near her home. Her mother convinced Andrew, a Duke, to take them to London, so that Ophelia did not waste away along with her mother. Andrew and Ophelia both needed emotional support, and Andrew also needed the love of mother, which Ophelia's mother filled. He accepted that he loved Ophelia and wanted to marry her, but she fought the idea. This was a beautiful story, including the epilogue. I am hoping that Andrew's friend Easton gets his novel, too!
