The BookViral Review:
With historical romance proving ever popular Landon weaves a delightfully spirited tale that courts intrigue as she lovingly resurrects her bygone era with an infallible eye for detail.
Autumn’s Wild Heart doesn’t have a particularly complex plot but it doesn’t need one as Landon’s forte is in finding the perfect balance between blossoming romance and heart rending indecision coupled with superb character development.
There’s all the drama and sensibilities expected of fine historical romance with a sprightly narrative and richly layered detail that creates a genuine sense of time and place. But what makes her tale most notable is her unerring ability to delve into the minds of her characters who she vividly brings to life.
On this level, she’s penned more than a captivatingly voyeuristic novel. It’s piquant and playful as she puts us in touch with the battle of emotions raging in Nella and James. We know what we want to happen – what must happen, given the conventions of the time but London society seems arrayed against them – not through prejudice, but through inhibition, hateful ground rules and more than a little ill-will in the form of Lady Blanche. A character with no redeemable qualities who’ll do her utmost to get the man she wants!
Cheeky in its approach, spirited and splendidly written Autumn’s Wild Heart proves a must-read for fans of Victorian Historical Romance and is recommended without reservation!
