Publisher's Summary

Eloisa James returns to the Wildes of Lindow Castle series with the next Wilde child who runs and joins a theatre troupe - and the duke who tries to save her reputation. 

He wants a prim and proper duchess, not the Wildest of the Wildes!

Already notorious for the golden hair that proves her mother’s infidelity, Lady Joan can’t seem to avoid scandals, but her latest escapade may finally ruin her: she’s determined to perform the title role of a prince - in breeches, naturally. 

She has the perfect model for an aristocratic male in mind: Thaddeus Erskine Shaw, Viscount Greywick, a man who scorned the very idea of marrying her. 

Not that Joan would want such a dubious honor, of course. 

For years, Thaddeus has avoided the one Wilde who shakes his composure, but he’s horrified when he grasps the danger Joan’s putting herself in. Staring into her defiant eyes, he makes the grim vow that he’ll keep her safe.

He strikes a bargain: after one performance, the lady must return to her father’s castle and marry one of three gentlemen whom he deems acceptable.

Not including him, of course.

Marginally better than say Yes to the Duke

I returned Say YES to the Duke as it was a waste of my library space. This one is just so so. No moments that give you the feels. I was just ok.

Still like Betsy’s story the best...Aunt Knowe shines in that one. ❤️

Phoned-in plot and terrible narration

The plot wasn’t too bad, but there were some graphic/unrealistic romantic scenes that bordered on ridiculous. The narration is what set it over the edge for me. Susan Duerden has the most irritating song-songy voice. I finished the book on my kindle without narration. It’s the only way I could get through it.

Joyful, funny, Joan is a pleasure

Eloisa James’s other self, Mary Bly, enriched this pleasurable book by intertwining within the story insights into Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It must be 60 years since I last read the play. I have a greater appreciation of Ophelia and a lower opinion of Hamlet now.
