Could she possibly refuse a duke’s hand—in favor of a sardonic, sinful rake?

Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure.

No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches.

If he wins…she is his, for one wild night.

But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.

Liked Jeremy more than Betsy so it felt a little lopsided for me. However, hoping that there will be another book about the next sister, as she was interesting for the little bit she was introduced.

There are few books that I enjoy every page of, and this is one of those! I generally love all of James’s books, and this is no exception. Wonderful characters that bring out so much emotion, you can’t help but fall in love with them.

This is the Wildes of Lindlow Castle book #4. It is the story of Lady Betsy Wilde and Lord Jeremy Roden. "One little wager will determine their fate—a daring escape or falling into temptation with a rakish lord." Betsy is finishing up a fantastic first season. She has many marriage proposals and then a duke asks for her hand in marriage. She hasn't made up her mind just yet and before she makes that choice and gets married, she wants one last adventure. When she comes up with a scandalous plan for her adventure, she enlists in the help of her family friend, Jeremy. He is not a gentleman by most means, and he offers her up a wager. They will play billiards and if she wins, he will provide the breeches she needs to go on her adventure. If he wins, she will be his for one wild night. Soon Jeremy realizes his mistake. One night with Betsy will never be enough. He has to convince her to say no to the duke. I loved this story. I loved the banter, chemistry and humor between Betsy and Jeremy. Another great historical romance by Eloisa James.

Another wonderful installment to a really great series, I absolutely loved Say No to the Duke. I'll admit I was hoping for more of a woman disguised as a man, mistaken identities hijinks type of book, but what I got instead was so much better. I love how REAL Betsy and Jeremy are, and the battles they fight within themselves. Betsy especially, as she is the "wildest of the Wildes" and then struggles so hard NOT to be her mother that she just smothers herself in respectability. And then Jeremy's battles with PTSD and his own self-worth and place in the world is just so amazingly depicted. Their interactions with each other are fire - so much chemistry, and so much of them being so lost in their own self-doubt that neither can see the real truth. UGH, love it. As usual for a book by Eloisa James, the side characters are some of my favorite parts. The Duchess of Eversly! Oh my gosh! She and her interactions with Aunt Knowe are hilarious. Jeremy's father is also just - ugh, there are no words. I was so upset when this book ended because I wanted to read more of the Duchess and the Marquess trying to top each other with stories about their childrens' accomplishments, more of the Duchess and her penchant for pink, more of Jeremy and his relationship with his dad, just MORE of all of it. This is definitely one of those books where you turn the last page, close the book, let out a big dreamy sigh, and then seriously contemplate starting over again at page 1. This is the fourth book in The Wildes of Lindow Castle series, and while it could technically be read as a stand alone Eloisa writes series that are so complex and interconnected that you're really best off reading in order. There's a scene in the third book in the series, Born to be Wilde, that sets up the relationship between Jeremy and Betsy that really is not to be missed. There are also several references to happenings in the first three books in the series that are major spoilers for said books.

I am a bookseller for a large bookstore and read the first book in this series, Wilde in Love, so that I could help promote this new romance series with our costumers. I have enjoyed all the books in this series. Say No To The Duke does not disappoint. Ms James has developed her story line and her characters very well. This is another very enjoyable book and I, as well as our customers, look forward to the next addition to this series. Wonderful historical references.

I loved it. I hope you are writing Joan's and Violet's stories. Also I think Aunt Knowe should have a love story!

What do you do when you're about 200 years before your time? Betsy Wilde is presented with this conundrum. She wants to ride astride. Wear pants. Be thought of as a equal to men. But is stymied at every turn. She's the belle of the London season, but in her heart...she just doesn't want to be like her mother. What do you do when you've been to war. The men you've commanded have all perished. You feel responsible. Fireworks at a celebration in London bring back the worst day of your life and you're confined to a mental hospital because you've lost control. Then you're taken in by the Wilde family to rest and heal. Betsy and Jeremy are living in close proximity and can't stand each other. Both have their own agenda, but there's just something about the two of them together that makes both stronger. I really enjoyed Betsy and Jeremy's story. Betsy was such a strong feminist, although she had no idea that even existed. Jeremy was broken and suffered from PTSD, although he had no idea that even existed. Together they were able to become better than either of them could individually.

the book was ok. I liked the first three parts of the series, but this one was a bit disappointing. Sorry to say, it went on and on and on.

Say No to the Duke (The Wildes of Lindow Castle, #4) by Eloisa James ..Thank you very much to the publisher and #NetGalley for letting me preview and review this book. THE WILDES OF LINDOW CASTLE is a fantastic series and I hated to put it down or for it to end. Lady Boadicea "Betsy" Wilde and Lord Jeremy Roden are perfect for each other...but each has their own demons... He has PTSD from the Revolutionary War..and she fears she will turn out like her mother. I love the whole family... but Aunt Knowe is my favorite. There is laughter, tears, drama, twists and turns and steamy sex all leading to a very HEA. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Tear-jerker Action-packed Steamy Easy-to-read Wonderful characters Happily Ever After Informative Page-turner
