About Isabella Bradford’s Wylder sisters & When You Wish Upon a Duke:
In a sparkling new series filled with irresistible charm and sizzling romance, award-winning author Isabella Bradford introduces us to the eldest of three Wylder sisters—unruly country girls whose passion for life leaves their London suitors breathless.
Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.
But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March’s broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?
I love reading romance — all of the sub-genre’s within the category, however, historical has always had a special place on my bookshelf. What is it about going back in time that strikes our curiosity? Life was difficult then without hair dryers, IPods and cell phones I should be thrilled with all of the convenient gadgets we have to make our lives easier, why should I have such an interest in the past?
There is something about historical romance that intrigues me . . . there is a simplicity and innocence that is conveyed in the stories. Fortunately, authors are writing stronger heroines, which may not replicate history to a ‘T’ but it sure resonates with readers today.
What is the one thing you enjoy about historical romance? & secondly, have your opinions of the sub-genre changed over the years? Comment below & you may be randomly chosen to win on of the 5 prize packs mentioned above! Good luck!
