About BETTING ON HIM:

 

He’s a gangster going straight. She’s a waitress going bankrupt. Will their gamble on a marriage of convenience pay off in true love?

 

 

Alex Wilde desperately wants to be free of the family’s mob business. But when his infamous father is murdered, the family attorney makes a suggestion he can’t ignore: find a bride before the funeral or they'll force a wedding with a nice Russian gangster girl. When he meets a feisty cocktail waitress, he thinks he’s found his way out.

 

Faye Tandy is desperately in debt and hard-pressed to find help. Alex’s offer of a phony marriage for a ton of cash couldn’t come at a better time and she’s happy to help him exit the criminal world. The fact that he’s tall, dark, and handsome is an attractive bonus. But when she discovers the Russians have a contract out on her head, she wonders if divorced and bankrupt would be a better choice than rich and dead...

 

As Faye’s fake feelings for Alex turn real, she’s terrified her trip to the altar might be her last. Will Alex and Faye’s throw of the dice succeed or will they lose the lawless game of love?

Tall, Dark and Charming - Erika Wilde

Aiden Stone and Daisy Parker work together at the Roth Owens Agency.  Aiden is somewhat of a playboy and never intends to settle down.  Daisy is just looking to be successful in her career, after a bad breakup.  After a successful client meeting Aiden and Daisy meet up in the hotel bar and end up having a drink together.....or a few....and then the flirting starts....which quickly leads to an agreement of a one-night stand with no strings attached.  And what an explosive one-night stand it was!  Fanning self!

Imagine everyone's surprise when Daisy ends up pregnant!  As Aiden and Daisy work through the news of her pregnancy, their relationship starts to change.  Both of them start wanting things they never knew they wanted and together they finally can find their happy ending.

I just freaking loved Aiden!  Tall, dark, sexy and a dirty talker all wrapped up with cute dimples on top!  You just can't help being smitten by him.  Daisy just wanted to find a happy ending after her idiot ex and never would have thought it would have been with Aiden.  I just adored this story and highly recommend it!

Born to Be Wilde (The Wildes of Lindow Castle #3) by Eloisa James
Born to be Wilde - Eloisa James

"She wanted a husband who, although he might not share her interest in bonnets, would nevertheless respect her fascination with the artistry of fashion, in the ways clothing could transform a person."

 

*** ABOUT THE BOOK ***

 

Title: Born to Be Wilde (The Wildes of Lindow Castle #3)

Author: Eloisa James

Genre: Historical Romance

 

Goodreads Amazon

 

*** BOOK BLURB ***

 

For beautiful, witty Lavinia Gray, there's only one thing worse than having to ask the appalling Parth Sterling to marry her: being turned down by him.

Now the richest bachelor in England, Parth is not about to marry a woman as reckless and fashion-obsessed as Lavinia; he's chosen a far more suitable bride.

But when he learns of Lavinia's desperate circumstances, he offers to find her a husband. Even better, he'll find her a prince.

As usual, there's no problem Parth can't fix. But the more time he spends with the beguiling Lavinia, the more he finds himself wondering…

Why does the woman who's completely wrong feel so right in his arms?

 

*** REVIEW ***

 

This book can be read as standalone, but to better understand the secondary characters I would recommend first read previous two books in the series.

 

Born to Be Wilde is kinda "enemies to lovers" type of romance. Story spins around two main characters - Parth and Lavinia - who claim not to care for each other while the opposite is blatantly obvious. 

 

I liked how through the book Lavinia's self-esteem is growing and she learning new things about herself. And her ingenious way of solving money problems by starting to work was not commonly found in regency romance either.

 

"Starting this evening, she would be herself around him: not flirtatious, not foolish, not insulting. Herself. No more and no less than her true self. A bonnet lover—an unabashed, unrepentant bonnet lover."

 

The book has subplots related to addiction and fashion, which for me were more interesting than the main plot. Maybe because it's not often you would find these topics in historical romance.

 

Overall I liked the book, but it didn't blow my mind. It was just fun and light story.

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was fun! I knew that I would have to read Parth and Lavinia's story just as soon as I knew that it was scheduled for release. This is the third book in the Wildes of Lindow Castle series which could be read as a stand alone although I think that it really would work best if the series is read in order since a lot of this story is set up in the previous installment. I went into this book with some pretty high expectations and I am happy to report that they were met. I really enjoyed my time reading about these wonderful characters.

This is Parth and Lavinia's story. Parth became a part of the Wilde family as a young child when his family died. He had done very well for himself and is a very successful businessman. Lavinia is good friends with Diana, North's soon to be wife, and grew up with Willa, who is married to Alaric. When Lavinia learns that her family is almost out of money, she realizes that she needs to marry soon and marry well. She asks Parth to marry her but is promptly turned down.

I loved both of these characters. Lavinia was so determined to make things right. She knew that her skills were somewhat limited but she was able to use those skills to start making her own money and took a lot of pride in her work. I really loved watching Lavinia find out for herself exactly how capable she really was. Parth was a great character as well. Despite the fact that he is not biologically a Wilde, he knows that he is a part of the family. His business pursuits are important to him but not more important than the people he cares about.

I had such a good time watching these two come together. They were both attracted to each other and I thought that they had some great chemistry. Their personalities fit together very well. They were both very intelligent people that took responsibility very seriously. I actually enjoyed their dates with other individuals and thought that each of those dates just proved how perfect these two were for each other.

I would recommend this book to fans of historical romance. I found this book to be a delightful read full of wonderful characters and a few more serious topics. I cannot wait to read more from Eloisa James in the future.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Avon Books via Edelweiss.

Initial Thoughts
I enjoyed this one. It liked Parth and Lavinia and was happy to see most of the other Wildes playing a role in the story.
