Overview

"The bluest of blood, the boldest of hearts; the de Montforte brothers will take your breath away." England, 1776: Lord Gareth de Montforte is known as an irresponsible rake with a heart of gold. When he takes a bullet for boldly thwarting a stagecoach robbery, he is stunned to discover that the beautiful young woman he has heroically rescued, Juliet Paige, is his deceased brother's American fiancée, accompanied by her infant daughter. Despite his brother the duke's refusal to acknowledge Juliet, Gareth is determined to do right by the courageous woman who crossed an ocean to give her baby her rightful name. But Juliet is wary of marrying this black sheep aristocrat, even while she is hopelessly charmed by the dashing devil. Never has she met anyone who embraces life so thoroughly, who makes her laugh, who loves her so well. And, even when it seems the odds are against them, Juliet has absolute faith that Gareth will go beyond the call of duty, risking his life itself to give her and her daughter a home -- and a love that will last a lifetime.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Wild One. The plot kept me interested as there was just the right amount of romance and just the right amount of excitement. I will be reading the next installment, The Beloved One, soon.

This is my first Danelle Harmon book and THIS is why I keep reading free books. It's not because I'm cheap, it's because I read A LOT! Nothing frustrated me more than buying a new book from an author that I haven't read only to find that I have a poorly edited hastily written novella that I should have been paid to read. This Georgian era novel was well written and fun to read. It also had a freshness to the story and style that made this book hard to put down. Loved it and bought the next one before I even wrote this review.

As the first in the series, your not sure how to take The Duke. But by the middle of the book I wanted to reach in and slap him :) that's how well written these characters are. You fall in love w/Garath pretty much from page three. This is a man coming of age story and it's brilliant!

I hate cliffhangers... period! I enjoyed the romance of Juliet and Gareth. But that was a rough row to hoe because she loved before. She was engaged to Charles because she fell in love. He was a British officer. She was a Colonial with no social standing. When she told Charles she was pregnant, he was so overjoyed that he immediately proposed. She wore his signet ring to display their promise... then Charles was killed and when the people realized that she had fratenized with a Brit, she had to escape. Charles made her promise to go to to his home and so she came to find a home for her daughter, Charlotte. Juliet met Gareth, Charles' brother. Circumstances threw them together until necessity required them to marry. Juliette did not love Gareth but he made her laugh and, more importantly, he made her daughter laugh! Although Juliette had married Gareth to protect her daughter, she continued to treasure Charles. She compared her beloved Charles to Gareth and her husband made a poor showing. He never planned anything, which resulted in chaos. I enjoyed their story. Gareth finally grows up. Juliette found him to be a good husband. Lucien, the oldest brother, the manipulator finds out that not everything can be controlled. Life is alwats stepping in. I do hate cliffhangers but this one is justified. I would recommend the book to all.

I just read Captain of My Heart from this same author and loved that book so I thought I would try this one. While this story was good I wasn't too crazy about it. It's a bit slow and Juliet does reminisce about Gareth's dead brother a little much while Gareth constantly compares himself to his dead brother. If you've read Captain of My Heart and are looking for something similar this book isn't it. I would be interested in reading the Duke's story though! He was a much more interesting character.

This is my first time reading this author I really enjoyed her style as well as this story which is first in a series. I'm about to buy the second book now. The cliffhanger was great.
