Dear Lady Truelove,
My ward is driving me crazy. I have to marry her off and get her out of my life. There’s just one problem…
When Jonathan Deverill promised a dying friend he’d be guardian to the man’s daughter, he envisioned a girl in pigtails and pinafores, a child he could leave behind in some finishing school. Problem is, his ward is actually a fully-grown, defiant beauty whose longing for romance threatens to make his guardianship a living hell.
New York heiress Marjorie McGann wants a London season and a titled husband who can help her spend the Yankee millions she’s inherited, and she thinks her new British guardian is the perfect person to help her find him. But Jonathan has no intention of letting his friend’s fortune be squandered. Under his watchful, protective eye, Marjorie finds romance hard to come by…until one fateful night when her own guardian’s devastating kisses makes her wonder if the greatest romance of all might be right in front of her.
Heiress Gone Wild is packed with heat, humor, and action. The attraction between the guardian and his ward grew with every page. Their heated debates made for a fun read. This journey was also heartfelt. Imagine a friend leaving behind the duty of his grown adult child in a bachelor’s hands. It was hilarious. I loved reading how Jonathan struggled with his words, desire, and handling of the young woman. A woman whose beauty and wit made everything that much harder for him. Marjorie is a young heiress who never really knew her father. He left her at the age of seven and then no one told her about his illness. With her father gone, Marjorie meets her guardian. He isn’t what she expected nor was she what he expected. Both had to learn how to deal with each other as their adventure moved forward.
I really liked Marjorie. The way she teased her guardian was entertaining. She’s a young lady who knows what she wants and won’t back down easily. This heiress is an interesting lady.
Jonathan made for a great guardian. In that he was completely unexperienced for handling children let alone a grown woman. He was so eager to have his sisters help him raise Marjorie that he feels worried he will fail his friend. That and the passion that ignites between them.
Heiress Gone Wild is a juicy yet scandalous tale. It’s one romantic historical read I won’t be forgetting any time soon.
