Determined to save her sister from selling her virtue, the resourceful beauty requires a strapping specimen to pose as a duke's long-lost heir. Pamela plans to collect the generous reward, then send him on his way. Lucky for the brazen beauty, the sed

A good read with an absolutely delightful hero and a strong, likable heroine - has some small plot problems (3.5 stars)

I definitely enjoyed this book and would recommend it to historical romance-lovers, though I did have some problems with parts of the plot and mystery subplot which seemed especially contrived. However, the relationship between Pamela and Connor is great to read and Connor is an *absolutely delicious* hero that I don't see how any woman could not adore!

It has been awhile since I have read a Teresa Medeiros book. I had some trepidation when I picked up Some Like It Wild because I am not a big fan of Scottish historical romances. It seems that every single Scottish historical romance has become very cookie cutter. Unfortunately so is the case with Teresa Medeiros who has fallen into this category with Some Like It Wild.

The year is 1814 and the place is the Scottish Highlands. The setting is so very important since this is a Scottish historical r

Another great Kincaid story! Acting the part of a Duke's long lost son with a randy and ill-mannered valet, engaged to a penniless girl with a snotty maid, and believing his life is one way and then discovering a secret makes this a delightful entry to the Kincaids tales. Pamela is a great match for Connor with their off the charts passion and love. Brodie cracks me up, and Sophie is too young and selfish for me to find her anything but annoying. Astrid deserved worse than Bedlam, but that is ju ...more

Loved this book... Teresa Medeiros is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. This book had some surprising twists to it that I wasn't expecting and I thought it wrapped up the Kincaid Highlander series very nicely! I'm assuming there won't be any more additions to this series, although I'd love to read a book about Crispin and Sophie, so I'll keep my fingers crossed about that one! Can't wait to read some more books by this very talented and witty author! :)

Having read and loved Yours Until Dawn, I glommed onto this book and plunged in. The illegitimate daughters of an actress are on their way to find a suitable impostor to play the role of long lost ducal heir. They hope to swindle the reward from the aging duke and discover who murdered their mother over a letter she received that holds a clue to the heir's whereabouts. While the world is searching for the lost heir in France, this letter, sent to their mother from her dear friend the duchess, re ...more

Jolie découverte de l’auteur, de son style, son univers.
J’ai beaucoup aimé le ton, l’atmosphère, les dialogues… notamment entre les personnages principaux (Connor et Pamela). J’ai adoré leurs échanges verbaux. C’est un livre qui tient grâce à ces deux personnages. Les personnages secondaires eux aussi bien décrit, notamment Brodie, Sophie et Crispin. L’auteur a réussi à faire en sorte que tous ces personnages (principaux et secondaires) soient dans l’intrigue sans qu’aucun n’empiète sur les autr

Bazıları Hırçın Sever // Teresa Medeiros

İki kitaplık bir serinin ikinci ve son kitabı olan Bazıları Hırçın Sever , ilk kitabı Bazıları Ateşli Sever'den daha iyiydi.İlk kitabını da çok beğenmiştim ama bunun bambaşka bir tadı vardı. Kitabı okurken kesinlikle çok keyif aldım. Keyif almamın yanı sıra yazar yine güzel bir kurgu kurmuş. Ama tabii ki kitaba 4,5 vermemden de görüleceği üzere kitaptaki bir kısmı biraz klasik buldum.

This book 2 in Ms. Medeiros Kincaid Highlander books, coming after Some Like it Wicked. This book is about the brother of the heroine from Some Like it Wicked. I enjoyed this book very much. It was a fast and fun read. However, I felt like I had read the end before (now, I know it’s not possible since it’s the first time I read this book, but, near the end when certain things are revealed at the party/dance that the Duke holds for the hero felt like déjà vu to me – probably very similar to anoth ...more

Excellent little series! I liked that book 1 Some Like It Wicked did have a different theme than Some Like it Wild.
I felt Some Like it Wild had much more angst. I knew what was coming because of the cliffhanger ending in Some Like It Wicked and I was anticipating/dreading it.

Great characters. I loved Connor. I was drooling picturing him all done up in his Highland garb when he was at the Duke's mansion. Pamela Darby was an excellent smart heroin. I loved her little plan with Connor and the Duk

Teresa Medeiros continues to be one of my favorite authors! This book did not disappoint me and I found myself smiling at different parts of the story (as I normally do with her books). She always has the ability to create heroes and heroines that are independent, loyal, and likable (she usually has a cute and sometimes mischievous kitty written in too). Connor and Pamela have a lot of witty banter in "Some Like It Wild" and it made for a fun book. I appreciated how they were loyal to their sist ...more

This book was rather a miss for me. I did not like much the hero, whom I did not manage to understand, nor the heroine, who seemed like plenty others I had previously read about - taking care of the family including the parent, feeling totally on the shelf and caring only about the future of her sibling. The sister only seemed selfish. The plot was too much. And finally I thought both the humour and the sensual attraction between the characters were off and seemed artificial and not consistent.

So, Pamela Darby needs money, power and the influence of a title in order to save her sister Sophie from having to sell herself to titled man. In order to save her sister though, Pamela also needs a man. Not just any man though, a Scottish man with more muscles than brains to pull off an elaborate con: Convince an aging duke that the man by her side is his long lost heir.

Il s'agit du deuxième tome du dyptique sur la famille Kincaid.

Ce deuxième volet est consacré à Connor, jeune highlander désabusé qui volent pour survivre.

Quand il rencontre Pamela, il est immédiatement attiré par elle et se rend compte que c'est réciproque. en outre, elle l'intrique beaucoup, dommage qu'elle ne soie anglaise ! Aussi quand Pamela lui fait part de son plan pour démasquer l'assassin de sa mère, il saute sur l'occasion et la fait passé pour sa fiancée.

Teresa'nın Türkiye'de çıkan 3.romanı Bazıları Hırçın Sever. İlk çıkan Güllerin Fısıltısı gayet güzel başlamıştı ama sonlarında, İskoç hikayesinin İngiliz tarzına dönüşmesi yüzünden çok sevememiştim.

Bazıları Ateşli Sever ise kahkahalarla, eglenerek okudugum bir romandı. Bunu da severim umuduyla okumaya başladım, aslında sevdim ama yine de son 30 sayfa haricinde gülmedim bile. İskoç hikayelerinde önemli bir unsur degil midir komedi? Bilemiyorum belki de bende artık tatminsiz bir kitap kaltağı olm

I've always been a fan of Teresa Medeiros' books. She infuses a lot of humor and sentimentality in a lot of her books and she always leaves me wanting more. This took me a while to read; not because it was hard to read (because it wasn't) but because I was being constantly distracted every time I tried to read it. People see me reading and automatically assume I have some free time to join them in shenanigans. Which - okay, sometimes, I do. BUT NOT ALWAYS! ... Anyway, what was I saying? Oh, righ ...more

Comme le premier tome, l'histoire est pleine d'humour. Les personnages sont piquants. L'intrigue s'essouffle quand même un peu vers le milieu mais le tout reste quand même très plaisant à lire.

As much as I've loved Teresa Medeiros other stories...this hero is my second favorite. Connor, in the sequel SOME LIKE IT WICKED, is my favorite.

BUT...Simon...whew.

Another must read from Teresa Medeiros. I have to say I have never been disappointed by one of her books and Some Like It Wild continued a massively successful streak.

If you like a historical romance full of hot chemistry, witty and charming banter, characters you love to hate, and a fairy tale retelling that is brilliantly woven then you need to read this book.

I've actually had this one for a while and I'm not sure why I was hesitating to read it. Maybe I was thinking they couldn't all live u

I have a weakness for the Highwayman based stories and Irish so this one delivered on all fronts. I really enjoyed the relationship between Connor and Pamela. Their complete shock at each other by constantly one uping the other is entertaining and allows for a platform for their relationship to grow through not only mutual annoyance with each other but also mutual respect. In like the idea that Pamela and Sophie come from a background of theatre and would have liked to have seen that played up a ...more
