Miss Celine Fairweather’s life was bobbing along like a boat on a tranquil stream when all of a sudden a summons from her beloved sister Penelope Radclyff, the Duchess of Blackthorne, changed it all.

I'm definitely looking forward to new books by this author. I really, really liked this book" ~ Tina, Reviewer, Island Reader Reviews

★★★★★ "From the moment Richard and Emma grace the page all the way up to where we find out 'whodunit', I couldn't put this book down ~ Bebe, Reviewer, Reading Until I Fall Asleep

★★★★ "Readers looking for something different from the traditional Reg Rom will find Wylde a breath of fresh air" ~ Anne, Reviewer, Regency Reader

★★★★★ "I'm a fan of Jane Austen. I'm also a huge fan of mysteries, so when I see stories that embody the two I jump over the moon.

Book Description 

The infamous rake, Lord Richard Hamilton, has finally chosen his bride—the very appropriate Miss Emma Grey.
The ton approves, Lord Grey is pleased, Lady Grey delighted, and Emma is over the moon, but her uncle, (the blasted) Duke of Arden opposes the match, and Emma is ordered to move to the duke’s estate to think things over. Richard Hamilton refuses to take things lying down and concocts a plan. A plan that should have brought the lovers together and had them married within a month. It was a simple matter of masquerading as the duke’s gardener, compromising the lady, and then having the duke rush them off to Gretna Green.
Alas, he underestimates the duke’s intelligence and the tangled situation on the estate—never had he imagined that compromising a lady could be so difficult. His endeavours lead to a comedy of errors, charades, and knotty love affairs. Yet he forges ahead in spite of pesky house guests, a flea bitten mattress, his lovesick best friend, and a blackmailer. Just when things seem to be going well, someone is murdered (very inconvenient), and he happens to be one of the suspects (extremely inconvenient). His simple plan for winning the wager suddenly becomes … a tad complicated.
