Wild in Winter is the sixth book by Scarlett Scott in The Wicked Winters series. In this book, the author follows romantic and fiery Christabella Winter. As long as she can remember, she's longed for stolen kisses, passion, and a handsome rake to woo her and become his bride. She's never wanted anything else. When Gill, the Duke of Coventry, is invited to the Christmastide party, she finds herself filled with a confusing fascination for the man. He's nothing that she wants. Quiet, shy, he avoids most social interaction. So, why, when he informs her he's never been kissed, does she want to be the one to change that? Certainly, she is only creating fantasies in her mind and she comes up with a plan to get it out of her system. She'll kiss him, help him learn how to properly woo a woman, and go on her way. But will it end there?
I ended Wild in Winter with so many feelings swirling about my body. It is filled with craftily-written imagery that makes you feel what the characters are feeling and you picture each scene. I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed both main characters, their quirks, and their interactions. Despite their stark contrasts, they're drawn together and seemingly fill the missing gaps in one another. It is a wonderfully written story that filled my heart with nothing but happiness, giddiness, and love. Scarlett Scott has done a great job writing a beautifully entertaining story focusing on true matters of the heart. Wonderful book!
