Product Description

Book Description

Another sensuous and exquisite historical romance in the Duchess Quartet by the queen of Regency seduction, Eloisa James.

Product Description

It is whispered behind the fans of London's dowagers and in the corners of the fashionable ballrooms that scandal follows wilfully wild Lady Beatrix Lennox wherever she goes. Three years earlier, the debutante created a sensation by being found in a distinctly compromising position. Now the ton has branded her as unmarriageable, her family has called her a vixen, and Beatrix sees no reason not to go after what - and who - she wishes.

And she wants Stephen Fairfax-Lacy, the handsome Earl of Spade. Beatrix, with her brazen suggestions and irresistibly sensuous allure, couldn't be more different from the earl's ideal future bride. Yet Beatrix brings out a wildness in him that he has tried to deny for far too long. Still, he's not about to play love's game by Lady Beatrix's rules. She may be used to being on top in affairs of the heart, but that will soon change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read With a Smile! 25 Mar 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have become a huge fan of Eloisa James and have probably read most, if not all, of her previous books. A Wild Pursuit is one of a series and Miss James' style continues to enchant.
The book is in fact at least two love stories, beautifully crafted together with great humour and sensitivity. Heavily pregnant Esme, with her luscious lover posing as her gardener and mischievous, sexy Bea lusting after the puritanical Stephen Farifax-Lacy, are delightful leading ladies. Supporting characters being Esme's scandalous thrice-widowed aunt, elegant sexually-repressed Lady Helene Godwin and the virtuous ladies of the local sewing circle-cum-bible quoting group. Not forgetting the sexy gardener Sebastian!
As Stephen becomes embroiled in the love lives of Esme and Helene - who secure him as faux-fiance and lover, he cannot resist the charms of Lady Bea. Bea is determined to to live up to the title of society femme fatale she has adopted, but reluctantly realises that her reputation will do Stephen's no good at all. As a member of parliament, surely she will only cause him grief?
The tangles of the house-party guests become more entwined until the arrival of Sebastian's mother, followed by Esme's baby and her righteous and ever-critical mother.
Sometimes an epilogue seems a neat but contrived way to 'tidy up' the end of a book, but I loved the two at the end of 'A Wild Pursuit' and eventually put the book down with a sigh and a smile - no doubt to read again soon!
Choose Eloisa James' books if you like intelligent dialogue, unusual story-lines and great characterisation - you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely enjoyable!! 29 Dec 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first reviewer sets the scene admirably for us and I have just 'romped' through this book and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Sebastian and Stephen, although quite different, were so entertaining and very sexy. The first in this series was harder work to read but this one flowed beautifully. I am looking forward to the next in the series and keeping my fingers crossed that it will be as satisfying as 'A Wild Pursuit'.
