A Wild Pursuit 
By Eloisa James

      Lady Beatrix Lennox’s reputation is in shreds—it has been for years--ever since she refused to marry, after being caught in a compromising situation. She has learned to live with the snide remarks, insulting looks, and freezing cold disapproval of her family and peers. When she accompanies her benefactor to the estate of a lady whose reputation has not always been prim and proper, she meets a man who makes her wish her past had been different.

    Stephen Fairfax-Lacy is the Earl of Spades—a title that denotes dignity, a pristine reputation, and a place in the House of Commons. When he comes face-to-face with the alluring, seductive, and totally ruined Lady Bea, he finds himself wanting her with a passion that overrules common sense. His pursuit takes on many guises as he pretends to be a lover to one houseguest and a fiancé to his hostess.

      Bea and Stephen discover that love has no rhyme nor reason as they find their physical attraction to one another begins to pale with the stronger passion of love. His proposal of marriage is refused and her ploy of seduction is cast aside as Stephen tries to convince Bea she is worthy to be loved and his wife.

     Ms. James writes an outstanding regency. She plays by the rules of the ton but adds significant changes that make it a hot, entertaining, and wonderful tale of love. By bringing back characters from one of her previous books, Fool For Love, she stirs a pot that boils over with engaging characters, aspirations of love, and humorous witticisms.
