The first book in Eloisa James’s dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm—and introduces a large, eccentric family. Readers will love the Wildes of Lindow Castle!

Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks. Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father’s castle, but just as he grasps that he’s not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty, Miss Willa Ffynche.

Willa presents the fa├žade of a serene young lady to the world. Her love of books and bawdy jokes is purely for the delight of her intimate friends. She wants nothing to do with a man whose private life is splashed over every newspaper.

Alaric has never met a woman he wanted for his own . . . until he meets Willa. He’s never lost a battle.

But a spirited woman like Willa isn’t going to make it easy. . . .

Chapter One
June 25, 1778

There wasn’t a person in all England who’d have believed the boy who grew up to be Lord Alaric Wilde would become famous.
Infamous? That was a possibility.
His own father had given him that label after Alaric was sent down from Eton at the age of eleven for regaling his classmates with stories of pirates.
Piracy wasn’t the problem—the problem was the uncanny way young Alaric had depicted his small-minded Etonian instructors in the guise of drunken sailors. These days he avoided portraying self-righteous Englishmen, but the impulse to observe had never left him. He watched and summarized, whether he was in China or an African jungle.
He had always written down what he saw. His Lord Wilde books were a consequence of that impulse to record his observations, a drive that appeared as soon as he learned to write his first sentences.
Like everyone else, it had never occurred to him that those books could make him famous. And he didn’t think any differently when he rolled out of his berth on Royal George. All he knew in that moment was that he was finally ready to see his family, all eight siblings, not to mention the duke, duchess, and a stepsister or two.
He’d stayed away for years, as if not seeing his eldest brother Horatius’s grave would make his death not true.
But it was time to go home.
He wanted a cup of tea. A steaming hot bath in a real bathtub. A lungful of smoky London air.
Hell, he even missed the peaty smell that hung over Lindow Moss, the bog that stretched for miles to the east of his father’s castle.
He was drawing back the curtain over the porthole when the ship’s boy knocked and entered. “There’s a mighty fog, milord, but we’re well up the Thames, and the captain reckons we’ll be at Billingsgate Wharf any minute.” His eyes shone with excitement.
Upon on deck, Alaric found Captain Barsley standing in the prow of the Royal George, hands on his hips. Alaric started toward him and stopped, astonished. Through the fog, the dock glimmered like a child’s toy: a blurry mass of pink, purple, and bright blue. It separated into parts as the ship approached.
The dock was crowded with women—or, more precisely, ladies, considering all the high plumes and parasols waving in the air. A grin tugged at the corners of Alaric’s mouth as he joined the captain.
“What in the devil is going on?”
“I expect they’re waiting for a prince or some such foolishness. Those passenger lists they print in the Morning Chronicle are utter rubbish. They’re going to be bloody disappointed when they realize the Royal George hasn’t a drop of royal blood aboard,” the captain grumbled.
Alaric, who was related to the crown through his grandfather, gave a shout of laughter. “You have a noble nose, Barsley. Perhaps they’ve discovered a relation you never heard of.”
Barsley just grunted. They were close enough now to discern that ladies were crowded as far back as the fish market. They appeared to be bobbing up and down like colored buoys, as they strained to see through the fog. Faint screams suggested excitement, if not hysteria.
“This is Bedlam,” Barsley said with disgust. “How are we supposed to disembark in the midst of that?”
“Since we’ve come from Moscow, perhaps they think the Russian ambassador is on board,” Alaric said, watching a rowboat set out toward them, manned by a dockworker.
“Why in the devil’s name would a flock of women come looking for a Russian?”
“Kochubey is a good-looking fellow,” Alaric said, as the boat struck the side of the ship with a thump. “He complained of English ladies besieging him, calling him Adonis, and sneaking into his bedchamber at night.”
But the captain wasn’t listening. “What the devil are those women doing on the wharf?” Captain Barsley roared, as the dockworker clambered over the side from the rowboat. “Make way for my gangplank, or I won’t be responsible for the fish having a fine meal!”
The man dropped to the deck, eyes round. “It’s true! You’re here!” he blurted out.
“Of course I’m here,” the captain snarled.
But the man wasn’t looking at Barsley.
He was looking at Alaric.

When Miranda makes music with Leo, she plays like an angel. But Leo knows they’re playing with fire. There’ll be hell to pay – literally. A dark romance with a supernatural twist: The Omen for the Twilight generation. 
What price would you pay for superlative talent?
Sparks fly when pianist Leo steps in to help Miranda audition for a violin scholarship to the prestigious Harkness Conservatory. He’s intense, patient, gorgeously French, and he plays the piano like a dream. The way they play the Kreutzer Sonata goes beyond anything she’s experienced.
But while 17-year old Miranda is impressing the panel, another candidate goes missing. From that moment, something ungodly seeps into her life. The question is – did the music draw in the forces of darkness? Or was it already there?
Oblivious to the ongoing search for the missing musician, Miranda and Leo travel to a medieval town in France, to perform in a prize-winners’ concert. Their attraction intensifies, even as Leo is revealed to have disturbing, even violent, family connections. Miranda is warned off…but it may already be too late.
Only a secretive, ancient sect can protect Miranda now. How can she accept their help when she can’t quite accept that she’s in danger?

His Mate and Her Vampire by A. B. Lee

Heat Rating

I am sitting in an Oral Surgeons office in Beaverton waiting with my son for his oral torture in the form of wisdom teeth removal, yep, all four must go, poor kid. Thankfully, we got a dentist that knows his stuff. I figured this would be a good time to get a review done, since I seem to be at my best when I’m not at home. So I will eventually have to pop out to take Jerod home but there will be a review out sometime today, preferably before my dinner date with my awesome husband. We are going to Carlton to Coast, it’s a new restaurant  in Carlton that we have been eager to check out.

His Mate and Her Vampire is a humorous story about Devlin finding his mate only to have to chase after her while she is on a road trip with her vampire friend with benefits indulging in said benefits. It’s a good thing that Devlin and Jackson both really want to keep Sabine safe for the fight would be epic in so many ways, I mean really, the Alpha of Alpha wolves (King of the wolves) and the oldest living vampire, that would be one hell of a fight if it happens. As it is, someone else is after Sabine for their own nefarious reasons so working together is what is needed.

The question that really plagues me at this moment is which was better the car sex or the mating sex? Both have the potential to leave a person panting. Of course, there is the addition of the fact that Sabine got two guys to pound her brains out in one night, damn, that left me wondering what would have happened if wolves weren’t so territorially possessive and could stand vampires scent. Sabine probably would have been in heaven, lol.

My only real complaint with His Mate and Her Vampire was the 15 edits that I found in this story, that ranged from missing words to typos. I think in this case the typos were the worse because a couple of them created words that made no sense in the sentences they were in... (Sorry for the pause, but my son’s wisdom teeth are pulled and we are home) So, where was I? Oh yes, the blasted edits which have been known to ruin complete stories because of their ill-timed placement. As I was saying the typos changed the word completely for example the author used ‘amble’ instead of ‘ample’ now this would be no cause for concern except for the fact she was discussing Sabine’s breast so now the question is, are Sabine’s breast slow moving or more than enough? This is why spell check should not be the only mode of editing.

I have read this story twice and really do like that it makes me laugh and I really want to give it a five-star rating but my problem is the 15 edits and it kills me to have to think it, say it and now write it but I am giving His Mate and Her Vampire a two-star rating. A. B. Lee, I have read many of your stories and loved them all so please understand that it was the edits that did it in and NOT your story telling.


“Jackson, you know it would take a week for your scent to wash off me where Grace was concerned. Now stop being such a bitch and just get us there will you?”—Sabine. It was true he was sounding like a bitch.

“You want love, Jackson. Go pay for it. I’m sure there’s more woman than even you can get through in your lifetimes just waiting for a slice of Jackson Pope’s dick.”—Sabine. I chose this one because I liked it and because it is example of the editing the needs doing, the word women would have fit better than woman.

Book Cover Rating
The cover of His Mate and Her Vampire looks more like a cover for a report of some kind rather than a book cover. In this case, thankfully, judging a book by its cover would not be a good thing.

Book Blurb Rating

Book's Blurb
