The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . SAY NO TO THE DUKE (The Wildes of Lindow Castle, #4) . . . The Wildes of Lindow Castle have been a riot of adventure, intrigue, choices, mishaps, and a family filled with more. I have loved Betsy since first meeting her back in book one. She has her turn at the plate and that's when all the fun begins. Seeing her with a duke, a stuck up slightly pompus duke was not what I pictured for such a lively young lady. 

Now, Jeremy Roden seems like a match for her. Outside of his PTSD her understood and challenged Betsy. This was what she needed and once all was said and done it was the dose of reality that Jeremy needed also. 

As always, I get a good read from Eloisa James. I love the characters and revisiting some from previous books of this series. I love the family and friends. I love the mischief of Betsy. James writes a very complimentary story to the rest of the series. 

Could she possibly refuse a duke’s hand—in favor of a sardonic, sinful rake?

Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure.

No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches.

If he wins…she is his, for one wild night.

But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.

They  moved toward  each other as  if they were following the steps of a very slow, very grand  country dance. One that was danced by kings and queens and countryfolk alike.

When   they were   beside each  other, she squared  her shoulders and met  his eyes. “I decided to come to you. I hope that is all right.”

“I do believe that you are the bravest woman I’ve ever met,” he replied.

He  couldn’t  have said  anything better;  Betsy felt herself  begin to glow. “I haven’t  been brave to this point, but  I have made up my mind to change. I outlawed being nervous, but now I need to  outlaw being afraid.” She hesitated. “I have chosen courage, and now I choose happiness.”

“I  love  you as  you are,”  he whispered,  and then his mouth came down on hers.

Her breath caught in her throat because their tongues met as if they kissed every day, every  night. He tasted right, which sent a shiver through her whole body, and pushed   her against him gently, the way a pebble might roll up a beach when the tide comes in.

One doesn’t fight the tide.
