      This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional BookviewsTo Tame a Wild Lady is Caro's story, she doesn't fit within the strict rules of society, and would rather ride her horse than gossip with the ladies. (un)conventionally short: Caro and Adrian weren't supposed to even meet. Needless to say, they were definitely not supposed to fall in love. To Tame A Wild Lady told a different story, though, and it was delightful! Second in the Duke Defying Daughters series, this story made my toes cu [...]

      'To Tame a Wild Lady' by Ashlyn Macnamara is book Two in the "Duke-Defying Daughters" series. This is the story of Lady Caroline Wilde and Adrian Crosby. I have read the previous book "To Lure a Proper Lady" but feel this can be a standalone book. Adrian is a bastard son but was raised with an education. Now Adrian is working as and estate manger for her father. Caro wants only to work with her horses and to train them. Adrian who is trying to help her father get his estate back in good standing [...]

      I had high hopes for To Tame a Wild Lady, especially considering that the first of the series, To Lure a Proper Lady, was one of my favourite books of 2016. That book’s charm was found in its unexpectedly droll but deserving hero finding love with a similarly intelligent woman. In this, the second of Ms. Macnamara’s Duke-Defying Daughters books, it feels as though all of the humor allotted for the series was spent in the previous instalment and what remains is just a similar conflict of fami [...]

      To Tame a Wild Lady is the second book in the Duke-Defying Daughters series by by Ashlyn Macnamara. I haven't read the first book in the series, and although I am sure it will be a great read, it wasn't necessary to read it in order to fully understand and enjoy this one.Adrian Crosby was born on the wrong side of the blanket, in other words, he is illegitimate. He doesn't even know who his father is. His mother is a tenant of Lord Wyvern, and thankfully the Lord's wife decided to take Adrian un [...]

      *I am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher*I liked this book much better than the last one! I am still not jazzed that the author likes to have her heroines chase down the hero - but in this book, it works.Lady Caroline aka Caro was introduced to us in the last book. She is the middle sister and to put it politely, a hoyden. She cares more for horses than she does people and has no desire to change. Adrian has come to the estate to take over as s [...]

      She was 'a temptation, a challenge, and utterly off-limits.''It is a truth universally acknowledged that a daughter of a duke is raised to believe she can do as she dashed well pleases, which may lead her into all manner of difficulty.' (from To Lure a Proper Lady).These are words from Lady Elizabeth's pen, and so pertinent to the Duke of Sherrington's second daughter, Lady Caroline Wilde. Caroline refuses to ride side saddle, instead rides astride in a pair of men's breeches. Startling indeed!I [...]

      I enjoyed this book more than the first one in this series. It may be because I was horse mad when I was younger and understand Lady Caroline's obsession with riding. She's determined to ride her wonderful jumper in a hunt. Only ladies don't ride in hunts. Adrian Crosby has taken the job as estate manager on the Sherrington estate after the previous manager stole from the Duke. He wants to make the estate more profitable by planting the fields that lay empty. Caroline wants those fields for her [...]

      I loved the feisty and sassy side of Caro, "she sat taller in the saddle, spine perfectly straight. “When hell freezes and the devil dons a pair of ice skates.” The reactions Caro gets out of Adrian, "he choked on his wine, coughing and spluttering for a good minute before he collected himself. “What do you know of orgies?” I loved this book, Caro beat to her own drum.

    9. Sportochick on said:

      A new twist to a historical romance that will add enjoyment for the reader. Caro is a very strong willed woman who constantly pushes the bar on propriety in the era in which she lived. For me it was enjoyable watching the tension and verbal back and forth between her and Adrian. Caro is not your typical women and she is extremely comfortable with herself. This attitude comes across the pages and draws the reader into the storyline.Adrian is a social stigma with a very solid belief system of work [...]

      Lady Caroline is the second daughter of a duke and she's more of a wild child than dutiful daughter. Caroline aka Caro fights against the strict constricts placed on young ladies of the ton. She is not interested in gossip or drinking tea with other young ladies. She wants to ride astride on her spirited horse and race like the wind across the fields. Adrian Crosby is chafing at his own constraints, but when he's hired at the manor as the land agent, sparks fly between him and Caro. Adrian fight [...]

    11. Barbara Rogers on said:

      I enjoyed this book. I'd really give it more like 3.5 stars, but that isn't a choice and it was good enough to round up to 4 rather than down to 3. It was slow and steady with no really exciting, threatening, suspenseful times. It just told a straightforward story of a romance between two people who came from two very different stations in society. She was the daughter of a duke and he was the estate agent and a bastard. I know this description sounds dull, but it really wasn't. However, if you [...]

    12. JoRead on said:

      To me this was a story of reverse roles where the rogue doing the seducing was the lady and the temptation was the gentleman. We met Caroline in the first installment of the series as the second daughter of the Duke of Sherrington. Although a lady of good breeding, she had no interest in securing a husband and even the prospect of marriage was the least of her concerns. He main concern had always been her horses and more recently to take part in a very important race where only gentlemen were al [...]

      I voluntarily read an advanced reading copy provided by the publisher via Netgalley. This is another fun read in the Duke-Defying Daughters series.The Duke of Sherrington's daughters have grown up on his country estate with freedom the average young lady of the ton could only dream about. As such, they have no desire to marry gentlemen of quality and become dutiful society wives. Lady Caroline is a fine horsewoman and wishes to one day ride to hounds with the most prestigious hunt in England, an [...]

    14. Janice Hougland on said:

      I love this type of Regency romance, about a strong heroine like Caroline who chafes at the strictures placed upon women during that time. And I love a hero like estate agent Adrian who comes to adore the “wildness” and strength in Lady Caroline. Despite the differences in their so-called stations they are drawn to and fall in love with each other. The lively romp they have trying to “do the right thing,” yet fighting their fierce attraction made for an absolutely marvelous romance! A co [...]

      I loved To Tame a Wild Lady. I haven't read book one, but had no trouble reading this as a stand-alone novel. I loved that the heroine was an equestrian, and all the horse-related details felt so real, true, and well-researched. The writing was captivating and the hero and heroine sympathetic and believable. Well done! I look forward to more books by this author.

      Lady Carolyn/Caro Wilde was the second daughter of the Duke of Sherrington. Since the kid Gus came to Sherrington manor at the end of the school term he had begged Caro for riding lessons. Gus was seven but wanted to jump the big hedges the way Caro did. Caro wants to join the next great hunt. Caro was determined to be allowed to ride in the male oriented sport of Hunting. Caro was not interested in gossip or drinking tea with other young ladies as was appropriate Gus’s father was married to C [...]

      Ah, one of my favorite tropes - a young lady and her stable boy. Except, in this case, it was an estate agent. But that just doesn't have the same ring to it. Nonetheless, I sincerely enjoyed the forbidden romance, as unlikely as it appeared to be, even in the end. Both the hero and heroine were fun and courageous, unwilling to let love pass them by.Lady Caroline Wilde prefers riding astride with the men over sitting in a parlor sipping tea with the ladies. She is bound and determined to prove h [...]

      This was a very exciting and thrilling read for all fans. The author has out done herself with a tale of humorous and witty dialog of the characters. I just love these kind of stories where opposites attract.You have one handsome, proper Adrian Crosby who wants to be employed by the Duke of Sherrington.He grew up on the estate of Lord Wyvern who in turn educated him to see to management of the land. His mother being a tenant raised him and of course he is illegitimate. Then one day while riding [...]

      To Take a Wild LadyI love a Regency Romance that isn’t just about the haut ton, relationship dramas, the latest styles, or the properties surrounding the 1800’s. To Take a Wild Lady is a book with a different twist. The Lady Caroline is beautiful, spunky, and knows what she wants. In other words a typical heroine. However, she is also more than that, she is strong, independent and caring. Her ability to admit when she is wrong is so refreshing. Lady Caroline’s main objective is to find a w [...]

      Lady Caroline Wilde, known as Caro, was a woman who didn't like to follow rules, starting with her own clothes.Known as a rebellious daughter, in a good way, she and the new land manager of her father, Adrian Crosby, didn't get along at first, but soon Adrian learns to deal with her, mainly because he has the support of her father , The Duke of Sherrington, to face her when she was too stubborn about business matters.The duke's eldest daughter, Lizzy, married, was the one who handled finances.Ad [...]

      This is book two in Ashlyn Macnamara's Duke-Defying Daughters Trilogy. Lady Caroline Wilde and Adrian Crosby's first meeting was less than sterling to say the least. She is mucking around in the mud, trying to gather up her unconscious nephew, Gus. He is on his way to an interview as estate manager. He aids her in her time of need, getting her and Gus back to the manor. As they spent time together, they learn to appreciate the good attributes each other has, but their stages don't allow anything [...]

      Lady Caroline takes the lead, as the Wilde sister to be tamed! She's used to riding horses astride, wearing pants and wants to join the hunt. She's independent and doesn't wish to marry and conform to a husband's dictates; but her father wishes her to marry a peer! Adrian arrives to apply for the estate agent position He hasn't title nor money, but he's the first man to affect Lady Caroline! Entertaining, laugh aloud romantic historical! Enjoyed revisiting Sherrington Manor and all it's quirky c [...]

      A definite buy buy book! I love the way this author writes. She takes the out of the norm route for her writing and I truly enjoy it! Taking everyday people among the nobility and writing in a manner that brings all worlds together. I will say her characters are engaging. In this particular book the only problem I have is really the heroine and horses talk. I would of like to have seen a heroine that was a little more mature in her fight to have a place in a mans world. The book is not lacking i [...]

      Caroline and Adrian are the perfect match.unfortunately society has a different idea of a perfect couple. I loved the wildness of the story, the bucking against an unfair system that puts people into their different classes and never allows for a crossing of the classes without the threat of banishment from their graces. Caroline may have been born a Duke's daughter but she never let that stop her. I loved her determination and her strong mind that refused to accept her place, refused to be put [...]

    25. Christine Woinich on said:

      Caro has been allowed to run a bit wild. She is an excellent horsewoman who wants to ride with the men in a hunt. Marriage would mean an end to that. Adrian comes into her life, shows tenderness to a boy he does not know, and tries to help manage the family money. Curiosity and lust pulls Caro to Adrian, and she loses her heart. There are some ups and downs, misunderstandings and good intentions throughout, enough to keep me reading. When Caro took the chance of giving up everything she cared fo [...]

      Can't finishI got to 43'/. but just couldn't stand the heroine another page. In spite of riding her horse all around the estate she seems not to recognize her own tenants. Worse, when the hero hires a tenant woman to save her from being beaten and threatened with sexual assault, when she's met the woman and seen that she has TWO black eyes, she accuses the hero of having ulterior motives and the victim of having designs on the hero. Right. Seems likely.

    27. Heidi on said:

      So I'm not a huge fan of equestrian stories. I don't know why, they're just not my thing. Daughters of Dukes who fall for men below their station? Totally into it. Daughters of Dukes who fall for men below their station but also talk about how much they love to ride horses? Eh. Caro and Adrian are steamy, their chemistry is good, their story is engaging. I'll certainly read more from Ashlyn Macnamara in the future. Just as long as it's not about horses.

    28. Amy Vida on said:

      I was grateful to receive a free copy of To Tame A Wild Lady. I always enjoy a good historical romance. This book was a little on the slow side for me. Adrian and was a great stand up guy, but I couldn't see what his drawl to Lady Caroline was. Some of the character development with Lady Caroline;s family was also lacing in development. Even with these few shortcomings, I still enjoyed reading this book, and would recommend to friends and family.

    29. Denning Marianne on said:

      Perfect coupleAdrian is simply a good man. Caro is a young woman made from a different mold. She rides like a man, and is determined to live life differently than other ton daughters. No wonder her heart fell for Adrian. No spoiler, but they are perfect for each other if they can go against the rules to be together
