I'm finally writing the review for this book I finished it uite a while ago but haven't had time to sit and write a review and then I had library books that were due so I was trying to write those reviews first so I could return those booksThis book has been on my list to own after I read Wanda Luce's debut novel Lydia and saw that she had a second book about to be released I loved Lydia and have been waiting somewhat patiently to read this one Well for Christmas my husband bought me several of my wish list books and this was at the top I was really excited I love all things regency and Jane Austen and this fits that very well Well when I sat down to start devouring this book I flipped to the back to read the synopsis and reviews I opened the back cover to look at the author bio yes I like to read those and the acknowledgment pages and instead of her bio it was a page of reviews for Lydia I started reading through them and guess what Much to my surprise and excitement my review was the last one on the page Yay Needless to say I was pretty excited seeing it printed in a book and from an author that I really like My husband had fun teasing me that I was published hahaha and my kids loved to tell everyone when they came over and showing them my book and review It made for some fun excitement in our lives Now onto my review of In the Wilds of Devon This novel was set again during the regency era and was a fabulous clean read If I had to pick a favorite between the author's two novels I would definitely say Lydia but this novel didn't disappoint in a fantastic storyline and great characters especially a very oppressive bad guyRupert is our main male character who has happened upon a ring of smugglers and has been working to oust them and get them arrested and stop their smuggling His life becomes endangered and he is exiled into hiding by the Prince so that he will be alive to testify against this smuggling group Rupert isn't happy at all to have done all the work he has done to just be sent away when the group is about to be apprehended Rupert was a captain in the navy during war with Napoleon but is also one of the most powerful men in the land he is the Earl of Carrington The Prince tells him to take on the persona of the captain and not divulge his identity to anyone Rupert's friend has a cottage far removed from London in Devon that he disappears to Alexandra Alex Dancy isn't all that she seems Her family cares for the cottage that Rupert will soon be occupying but they have many large secrets that they fear if anyone discovers them they will be ruined forever Cecil Bedfordour villian is allowing the Dancy family to rent the small home they are living in for free as long as Alex agrees to marry him in the near future Alexandra is a great beauty that none can match and Cecil Bedford is completely obsessed with her He will do anything to ensure that she belongs to him Unknown to the reader he has a strong hold over their family which is a large struggle for Alex because she feels she has no way to extricate herself from his grasp She has been praying for a miracle and a way to help her family escape but she has been unable to find any hope to do soWhen Captain Carrington first arrives in Devon he and Alexandra have a misunderstanding which leads her to be very upset with him and grateful that she will never have to see him again until she discovers he is the new occupant of the cottage that her family helps care for They are forced into each other's company time and time again Every time Alexandra's barrier towards the captain starts to drop She begins to realize her first impressions were not accurate and starts to form an attachment against her will First because she knows that she is far below his social status even so when she starts to believe that he is higher ranked than he lets on Second because she knows she will only suffer if she allows herself any hope from being free of CecilCaptain Carrington is intrigued by Alex and knows that he should not even look in her direction because her social standing would only bring her pain and ridicule from the social circles he walks in if they were to ever marry Yet he happens to chance upon several moments unseen when she is speaking to Cecil Bedford He realizes that Cecil has some sort of hold over her and her family and is determined to find out what In the many interactions he has with the Dancy family he begins to suspect about their history I really don't want to spoil anything and I think that most readers will come to some sort of conclusion about her family as you start to read but I want you to be able to do that and have the experience of it rather than me telling you Sorry if you were wanting that infoCaptain Carrington starts investigating into the Dancy family only to come up short Luckily he chances upon clues that help him and eventually Alex reveals a little about her situation Eventually Cecil pulls his wild card and Alex is almost out of time to secure her freedom of Cecil She must figure it out soon or will have to be married to him and unhappy for the rest of her life Just to throw it out there as well what will happen when she finally discovers he isn't just a CaptainWhat will he do when he discovers the secret that her family has tried so desperately to keep hidden and which keeps Cecil Bedford close byI have to say it was just a great read The two main characters were well developed the backstory was well set up and revealed slowly throughout the novel I could guess at the ending but wasn't 100 percent for sure until the final reveal I enjoy books like that After reading many books with the predictable outcomewhich I do love by the way it is nice to have one that although predictable it is hard to put your finger on the exact secret of the charactersI am sure I could go on and on about the book but I am out of time and have to run If you are wondering if you should read this book or not I say do it Just pick it up and enjoy the suspense and unraveling of the secrets in it all the way to the last page Then if you haven't already read Lydia pick that one up too I'm happily awaiting for any further books Wanda Luce decides to writeHappy Reading
