Tonight (Tuesday, May 22) at 7pm EST, Eloisa will be Live on her Facebook Page, answering questions about the Wildes and reading aloud a bit of the novel—please join us!
In one short week, Too Wilde to Wed will be unleashed into the wild and your e-reader! We hope you’ll love it: Booklist starred their review because of “potent sensuality [and] a deliciously dry sense of humor.” RT BookReviews gave it a Top Pick and declared it “destined for readers’ keeper shelves.” And Fresh Fiction called North and Diana “sweet and sexy!”
Another thing you’ll love? Eloisa’s 90-page novella, Wilde Denial, available only if you register your preorder or buy the novel in the first week! If you have any trouble with the form on Eloisa’s website, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re sending out the novella in early June so don’t miss it!
What to read while you wait? We at Team Eloisa have been raving about the Royal Wedding, and Meghan’s graceful adjustment to high society. We couldn’t help thinking about Eloisa’s My American Duchess, because Merry isn’t quite so graceful! All the same, Merry’s duke kissed her as sweetly as the prince kissed Meghan.
We can’t wait for you to read North and Diana’s story! In the meantime, Eloisa will be reading a fabulous excerpt on her Facebook page TODAY, May 15 at 7pm EST. We love the scene she’s chosen to read and we just know you will too. North and Diana are playing a game of True or False!
Waiting for the Royal Wedding? Starting Friday at 6am EST, Eloisa will be participating in a Facebook Hop to celebrate!. She’ll be giving away five signed copies of My American Duchess on her page. There will be prizes at each of the twenty-seven stops and then a Grand Prize of a Kindle Fire!
Make sure to preorder Too Wilde to Wed and then register it. Eloisa has been hard at work on the next portion of Wilde Denial and we can’t wait to read it. The last portion ended in the bedroom; what could possibly happen next?
Entertainment Weekly is debuting the hot Born to be Wilde cover—and they have a sizzling scene from the book to go with! If you have preordered Born to be Wilde already and would like to register for that portion of the free short story, Wilde Denial, simply email us at email@example.com.
More excitement: Too Wilde to Wed publishes in just over three weeks! Eloisa is so thrilled that each Tuesday at 7pm EST she is going LIVE on her Facebook page. Here is the link to her first video, where you get to meet her husband, Alessandro!
This week she’ll be reading from her free short story, Wilde Denial. Set your calendars!
Lavinia’s story [Wilde #3] just got a title—and a new pub date, only a few months away! Entertainment Weekly has the title AND an exclusive excerpt, so jump over there and take a look!

Team Eloisa is quite jealous of Eloisa, because she’s attending the cover shoot for the third Wilde book today! Do you remember the video from the Wilde in Love shoot? If you missed it, it’s still available on Eloisa’s website. Hubba Hubba is all we have to say about that.
We are very happy to share that the Wildes are so popular that Harper Collins asked for three more Wildes of Lindow Castle! Team Eloisa is hoping for even more than six. Who doesn’t want to see Artie in the ballroom instead of the nursery?
The countdown to Too Wilde to Wed has begun! We’re planning website updates, social media goodies and of course, reminding Eloisa to write the next thirty pages to Wilde Denial. If you’ve preordered Too Wilde, make sure you register it on the website so you get the free story. How is Eloisa possibly going to top that sexy snow scene?
The stepback for Too Wilde to Wed is now on Eloisa’s website for you to enjoy. The artist did a great job capturing North and Diana—especially the fiery red hair she used to cover up with a wig!
We are just wild about Booklist’s starred review of Too Wilde to Wed here at Team Eloisa! This sentence is so fabulous we couldn’t even trim it down. “James again elevates historical romance to sublime new heights through the lithe elegance of her writing, her exceptional gift for creating richly nuanced characters, and her ability to flawlessly marry potent sensuality with a deliciously dry sense of humor.” Have you preordered this “sublime” novel yet and registered your preorder so you receive the next installment of Wilde Denial?
Are you on Instagram? Eloisa’s having a blast sharing some of her favorite books, reader art, fun with her author friends and loads of giveaways! You can follow her at @eloisajamesbooks.
The next edition of Eloisa’s Five Fabulous Things will be going out in a couple days. Make sure you open it! We’re sharing a tidbit from Too Wilde to Wed and Eloisa’s giving away five coin purses she picked up in Italy to share with readers!
Audible has just released their Romance Essentials list – the 50 books they believe are must-listens for romance fans. We are excited to say that they included Desperate Duchesses! They gave it a lovely review too. “Lady Roberta St. Giles has led a sheltered life and has very specific plans for the sedate married life she seeks. But Damon Reeve, the Earl of Gryffyn, has other plans for the young woman, who goes from a potential plaything to his beloved, even as she comes to see that he’s the one for her. Historic romance queen Eloisa James kicks off this new Georgian series by proving why she’s known for richly woven regency stories with an interesting cast of characters and delightfully witty dialogue, as Rosalyn Landor embraces it all and immerses you in the period and wraps you in their delicious spark.”
You can buy this “richly woven regency story” for only $4.95 for two more days. The sale ends on February 25. You do have to be a member of Audible to purchase, but you can try them for free for 30 days! If you’d like to sample Desperate Duchesses, here is a short audio excerpt on Eloisa’s website.
Do you like to listen to a story as if you were eavesdropping into another world? I have fabulous news: Audible put the audio version of Desperate Duchesses on sale for only $4.95! The sale runs until February 25.
Talking of inexpensive pleasures, my latest anthology, Midsummer Delights, is now available and is only 99¢. All three short stories are sweet and sexy—the perfect size to read while waiting in line or in the subway.
On a celebratory front, All About Romance included Wilde in Love in their Top Picks for 2017! The reviewer said that Wilde “left [her] with a big smile.” And Parth Sterling has been nominated for Best Character in a Supporting Role in the 2017 Bookish Awards! Want to put in a word for Parth? Voting is open until March 2.
How about giving yourself a Valentine’s Day present? Midsummer Delights costs less than a box of chocolate, and it has three short delightful stories that will leave your heart dancing with delight. Worried you’ve read them already? All three stories have only been available in limited release until now.
Do you remember the rascals who labeled Josie Essex a Scottish Sausage? Josie and the Earl of Mayne make an appearance in A Midsummer Night’s Delight, supporting Miss Cecilia Bellingsworth when she transforms, a la Cinderella, and dazzles a room full of gentlemen. This novella was included in the (digital only) Essex Sisters Companion Guide.
In At Midnight, Eloisa gives us another twist on Cinderella! Miss Penelope White takes fate and love into her own hands and filches one shoe from her true love, Elias Hempleworth-Gray. This fun, sweet story was included in the (print only) Fairy Tale sampler.
Violet Leighton and Rothwell Talcott had a perfect love affair—until Rothwell left for a year, and that year turned to four. Violet was left broken-hearted and with her virtue in tatters. Now that he’s back home—and a duke—will Violet ever be able to forgive him? Ever After has been available only in the print edition of The Ugly Duchess until now!
Being (most inconveniently) a virgin who had never even been kissed, Cecilia was uncertain about her ability to seduce a gentleman.
Dear Readers, please meet Cecilia from the short story, A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace. Newly posted is the excerpt from Midsummer Delights, a delightful treasure of three stories with a Cinderella twist. Readers need only wait until February 6 for the ebook. Pre-ordering is available!
While you wait for both Midsummer Delights and Too Wilde to Wed (May 29), why not explore Eloisa’s audio excerpts! Over 20 audio snippets are posted here on EloisaJames.com. Small delicious samples… Enjoy!
