Wilde in Love is a bestseller! In fact, it’s the only romance in the top 10 on The New York Times bestseller list! I’m so grateful to my readers. Pre-orders and purchases in the first week made this possible!

If you registered your pre-order or purchase, Wilde Denial was sent out on Tuesday, and I’m already hearing about that sexy snow scene! If the link didn’t show up in your inbox, please check your spam folder and then write

I’d also like to send a huge thank you to everyone who took a moment to write a review of Wilde in Love on Amazon, Goodreads, their blog or anywhere. At the moment, Amazon is showing 108 reviews and 4 1/2 stars. It makes me smile every time I look at it. I am so grateful!

Huge hugs from Eloisa

Wilde in Love is Here!

Team Eloisa is bursting with excitement. We truly hope you love Wilde in Love as much as we do. This book has it all. Alaric is sexy. Willa is smart and witty. Sweetpea is precious, and the rest of the cast makes you wish you were invited to a houseparty at Lindow Castle! It’s been exciting to see the media love this book too. It’s been featured in both Cosmopolitan and Entertainment Weekly! As exciting as that is, your reviews matter most to Eloisa. If you could possibly take a moment to share an honest review on Amazon, that would be wonderful!

Wilde in Love Updates

If you are going wild waiting for the release of Wilde in Love, Eloisa just added another chapter to her website to help tide you over!

Two more reviews have Eloisa grinning from ear to ear. Booklist‘s starred review raves, “smart is the new sexy!” and Publishers Weekly loved the “exchanges of witty repartee and sensual innuendo.”

In case you missed it, the video Eloisa shot during the Wilde in Love cover shoot is on her website. The actors were so fun, and it was fascinating to see how a cover comes into being!

Wilde in Love Sneak Peek!

Bookish just named Wilde in Love as one of their Must Reads of Fall 2017! Here is what they had to say: “We know you shouldn’t judge books by their covers, but this one is giving us serious Colin-Firth-as-Fitzwilliam-Darcy vibes and that alone makes it a winner.​” You can now read chapter one on Eloisa’s website! You can also pre-order at all online retailers.

Would you like a signed copy of one of Eloisa’s books? Here is your chance! You can order any of her titles from the Li’L Book Bug bookstore and Eloisa will sign them while she’s at the Historical Romance Retreat. The bookstore will then ship them straight to you. All orders must be in by Tuesday, September 26.​

Did you know there is a special meaning behind the heroine of My American Duchess‘s name, Merry? Eloisa wrote a special prequel about Merry’s parents and the reason for her name!

Wilde in Love is “charming, romantic, & unexpectedly funny”!

Wilde in Love just got a starred review from Kirkus! “This new Georgian-set series about the aptly named Wilde family and its sprawling estate in Cheshire is full of her signature style: witty repartee between a sensual hero and a smart, unconventional heroine…charming, romantic, and unexpectedly funny.”

Have you pre-ordered? Because it would be a great way to ensure that your Halloween is a lot more fun than answering the door for 15 Harrys and 17 Hermiones!

Just an update about A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace. If you’ve pre-ordered, your retailer has sent you an email that your order has been canceled. The publication date has been changed to February 6. We’re so sorry about this! It’s going to be a better collection for the wait: we promise that!

Here’s something fun that was just added to Eloisa’s website in honor of her upcoming new Georgian-set series: Georgian jokes! Georgians loved to laugh and bawdy jokes were among their favorites, so we compiled a few of Eloisa’s favorites.

Correction to Four Nights with the Duke Sale

Please accept our sincere apologies for the mistake in yesterday’s newsflash. We incorrectly stated that the Kindle version of Four Nights with the Duke was on sale. The paperback version is on sale for $4.83. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.

We just received news that you could win a copy of Eloisa’s My American Duchess along with three other “duchess” books! Visit the A Love So True website for contest information. Good luck!

Four Nights with the Duke on Sale!

If you don’t have Four Nights with the Duke yet, the paperback version is only $4.83! We don’t know how long the markdown will last. If you have read it, we would be hugely grateful if you wrote a review and toppled the book over 400 reviews! It’s almost there!

Do you remember Edie from Once Upon a Tower and her love of the cello? Eloisa created a playlist of the music Edie loved and would have played. Make sure you scroll through the entire list, because the last piece is a fabulous event: two Croatian musicians playing their version of Guns n Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle!”
