Lady Windermere’s Lover
The Wild Quartet Series Book Three
By: Miranda Neville
Releasing June 24th, 2014
Damian, Earl of Windermere, rues the day he drunkenly gambled away his family's estate and was forced into marriage to reclaim it. Now, after hiding out from his new bride for a year, Damian is finally called home, only to discover that his modest bride has become an alluring beauty—and rumor has it that she's taken a lover. Damian vows to keep his wife from straying again, but to do so he must seduce her—and protect his heart from falling for the wife he never knew he wanted.

Cynthia never aspired to be the subject of scandal. But with her husband off gallivanting across Persia, what was a lady to do? Flirting shamelessly with his former best friend seemed like the perfect revenge . . . except no matter how little Damian deserves her loyalty, Cynthia can't bring herself to be unfaithful. But now that the scoundrel has returned home, Cynthia isn't about to forgive his absence so easily—even if his presence stirs something in her she'd long thought dead and buried. He might win her heart . . . if he can earn her forgiveness!

Lady Windermere’s Lover is a story of love, forgiveness, and second chances. Miranda Neville once again offered her readers a tale of romance that can make you swoon and fall in love.

Damian, the Earl of Windermere, can’t believed he gambled the one thing that his mother left for him. The family estate that was with them for years was now being dangled in front of him, taunting to be reclaimed if he get married to the niece of a man who had won it on another gambling table. After hiding from his new bride for a year, Damian was called back home, only to discover that the bride he left a year ago, was nowhere to be found. Instead, she was replaced with someone that made his jaws dropped – a sultry, beautiful and sexy woman that has been rumored to have taken a lover. Now that he’s back, he will try to keep his wife from straying again. So he devices a plan to seduce her, but first, he needed to protect his heart from falling in love with the woman he didn’t want, at first. But getting to know her everyday, proving all the accusations wrong, and learning new things about his wife makes it hard for him not to fall…

Being a daughter of a vicar, Cynthia didn’t plan to be a subject of a scandal. But her husband had abandoned her almost one year ago, busy with his work and wandering around Persia. Being alone, she felt so lonely, and temptation was sometimes lurking around the corner, trying to lure her into committing mistakes. Especially when the temptation is in the form of the irresistible Julian, her husband’s ex best friend. I so love this girl, because whatever Damian did to her, even though he broke her heart, she didn’t stray. She was still loyal to her vows and absentee husband. Now that he’s back trying to reclaim her, he would have to grovel before she tries to forgive him. He might try to seduce her, but in order to win her heart, he must first earn her trust and her forgiveness.

Although this wasn’t my favorite among all of Miranda Neville’s work, I still had fun reading it. Watching Damian being succumbed by jealousy, watching him finally realizing that he made a mistake, watching them giving their marriage a second chance, watching one surprise unfold one after the other, not all were good but gave me a jolt of surprise made this whole journey with Cynthia and Damian entertaining!

Miranda Neville grew up in England. During her misspent youth she devoured the works of Georgette Heyer, Jean Plaidy, and any other historical novels she could lay hands on. As a result she attended the University of Oxford to study history, ignoring all hints that economics might be a more practical subject. She spent several years writing catalogs of rare books and original letters and manuscripts for Sotheby’s auction house in London and New York. Much of her time in this job was spent reading the personal correspondence of the famous. This confirmed her suspicion that the most interesting thing about history is people.

Since moving to Vermont, she has worked in Special Collections at Dartmouth College and as an editor and journalist on Behind the Times, a small, idiosyncratic (and now defunct) monthly newspaper. She is the owner and editor of a weekly advertiser in the Upper Valley, a job that leaves her enough time to write fiction.

Her first book, Never Resist Temptation. was published by Avon in 2009. The first two books in the Burgundy Club series will be published in 2010.

She lives with her daugher, Becca, a college student and confirmed drama queen, and two cats who are never on the right side of any door.
