The Wild One (The de Montforte Brothers #1)
Meet Lord Gareth...
"They call me The Wild One, and for good reason. The devil only knows whether or not I am husband material. But I do know one thing. I will do anything to win Juliet's love...and to be the husband and father—the man—I know it is within me to be." —Lord Garet...more
Finally on ebook format!!! Going for a re-read, this was one of my favorite historical romance series. I sure wish the author would come out of retirement too, but for now glad to have this series on ebook format. :-)
Backlist title, just released on Kindle 5/15/12 :)
Being able to read these backlist titles, is one of my favorite thing about my Kindle.
I have issues with the font in paperback books, especially those that are long out of print and yellowed. So every time I see a title pop up on Kindle, that I have had on my list for a long time, I am very happy.
This is the kind of book that reminds me why I love Historical Romance novels.
The Hero is a spoiled, childish, irres...more
This was a Kindle freebie, and honestly? with the free reads my expectations are not very high, OMG! this was one of the best historical romances I've read in a while. I didn't get halfway through and was already thinking I can hardly wait for the next in the series. My first from this author and was truly impressed. I thought it was a very well written and beautifully touching love story.Book Synopsis:
"They call me The Wild One, and for good reason. The devil only knows whether or not I am...more
When I started reading this book, I'm afraid Juliet will not fall in love with Gareth. But seeing Gareth take responsibility and make her laugh, I saw affection and love grow between them.
The story is good and I want to know what happen to all DeMontforte br...more

The biggest surprise for me about this book is the way the author got me to like and care about a guy who's type I usually don't like very well in books. The hero starts off as an immature spoiled man/boy. He dabbles in nearly all the vi...more
This book, for once, took the main characters in the front, get the ton barely visible, and concentrate on SHOWING us how this bored and irresponsible rake get...more
Did you ever watch Scooby Doo? Remember how Velma has this penchant for stating the obvious and telling the audience how the mystery wraps up, in case we’re too stupid to figure it out? Sometimes authors do that too. Providing an information dump through the words of a character instead of letting the actions and story details show us. Or worse yet, dumping this information on us...more
That said, this blew me away. While perhaps not the very best romance novel I've ever read, it was pretty damned good. The hero broke the typical mold a little bit. Yes, he's a rake and a wastrel, but he's not dark, brooding, and commanding. He's actually kind of a worthless git. He's handsome and charming, but at the outset of the book, that's...more
The best part of this romance is that Juliet's conflicted feelings are so realistically portrayed. While Gareth falls head over arse for the beautiful, brave American almost at once, she is still in love with his dead brother, Cha...more
Something old is new again. Welcome to the rerelease of the de Montforte series; about four brothers who are as different as night and day.
Lord Gareth de Montforte is known in the town of Ravenscombe as the Wild One, and is always out to have a good time with his fellow troublemakers from the Den of Debauchery. They are men who are rakes and wastrels. But Lord Gareth’s view of life changes when he intercedes during a robbery, saving a...more
This story is the opener in a series about the de Montforte brothers. We start with a letter from the second eldest (Charles) to the eldest, The Duke (Lucien) asking him to care for his fiancee and child should anything happen to him. What we don't know at that point and not for some time is that Lucien is a master manipulator of his family and likely others. Enter Juliette, ou...more
But Juliet is just the woman to see what you and I might not in this man.
Juliet has traveled from a war-torn Boston to the home of her fiance, a deceased British army officer and t...more
Gareth’s story is filled with humor and heart break, but what I liked best was this heroin’s story and the way she handled herself (although at times she did get my goat up!) despite the situations Gareth put her into.
Gareth is the third son of a Duke, and current Duke’s spare heir. He is not exactly a black sheep of the family, even though he is described as such, but a twenty-three year old scoundrel whose rep...more
As for the story development, it was solid. The latter part of the book reminded me a lot of t...more

Well, this is the situation that Lord Gareth de Montforte finds himself when the fiance of his dead brother shows up in this story set in historical England. Juliet Paige is a well raised American woman, but she can't have been that well watched because she had a child out of wedlock, a big no-no at that time. She is looking out for her infant daughter like any g...more
I LOVE these two main characters, Juliet and Gareth. Juliet is what you would expect of a young woman whose love has died and left he...more
