(quote for The Sins of Their Fathers)
"Unique, masterfully written and engaging storylines coupled with
fascinating characters are what every reader can expect from Emma Wildes.
For fans of historical and Regency romance, look no further. Ms. Wildes
possesses a beautiful, flowing writing style that transports her readers to
another time as the sights and sounds come to life around them. My
expectations are exceeded every time I read one of her books!"

for The Sins of Their Fathers
"Of all the authors I’ve read, I believe Emma Wildes to
be my hands-down favorite. Improper Ladies 2: Can’t Say No lives up to
every expectation. Lady Helen is every bit the strong, determined and honest
young woman I’ve come to expect from Ms. Wildes’ heroines. Lord Warrick is not
the typical notorious rake. He is even more desirable and sexier as the result.
The sex is varied and stimulating. I especially enjoyed how quickly Wade and
Helen became obsessed with sex together. It would seem the Lady is as passionate
as her mother and has found that rare man who is as sensual as her father. The
plot is exceptional with imaginative twists and turns. In my opinion it has all
the best elements of erotic romance. This story reads perfectly as a
stand-alone, but you will certainly want to read the first after reading this
This third episode of the
Tiburon series, Kissed By Fate, easily stands alone as another
delightfully imaginative and inventive fantasy from one of my favorite authors,
the ultra-talented Lara Santiago. I loved this story as much as the rest of the
series. Lizzie and Alex are sexy, funny and tragic. The original cast has
returned with the addition of the next generation. The sex is heated, but sweet
and amusingly different due to the difference in species. What could possibly be
better than orgasms with chocolate? I feel obligated to warn the readers
that once you’ve read this offering, you won’t rest until you’ve read their
beginning in the first two books of the series. The Sins of Their Fathers
is the type of book that makes you happy you’ve experienced reading it. You’ll
need your own hero, or at least your favorite toys after reading this book. It
is the kind that will make you fall in love all over again. I couldn’t recommend

"Emma Wildes and Lara
Santiago, two of my favorite authors, have
come together with a book that carries on
into the next generation. And, boy, have I
for one been waiting for it! There’s a bit
of history here so stay with me.
Emma’s Can’t say No is the
sequel to Savage Shores, and
boy oh boy, Jonathan and Jenna had a child
that definitely has a mind and a body of
her own and she isn’t afraid to use it!
Poor Wade Warrick doesn’t stand a chance
when the beautiful Lady Helen sets him in
her [sights]. What should have been a
one-time thing, her losing her virginity,
soon becomes one night not even close to
being enough. One secret meeting too many
and there’s consequences for all. What
might have started as a simple sexual
affair becomes an inferno of love that you
don’t want to pass up. Helen is a woman
that you want to throw up a fist in
victory for her inventive way of thwarting
and outmaneuvering her father on his quest
to do things his way.
Kisses By Fate combines both
Just a Kiss and
Just One Embrace
into a story that I couldn’t put
down until I finished it.
Alex is the son of Crag and Ellie (Just
one Embrace) and he’s come to
Earth and [learned] some very fun Earth
rituals until he sets eyes on the lovely
Lizzie—Keller and Gabrielle’s daughter (Just
A Kiss). Craig, Lizzie and Emma
Ruth’s older brother is overprotective,
but really! Going ape over a kiss?!
Course, the lovely twins don’t have a clue
that their father is an alien and a kiss
to humans is mouth-mating on the planet
Tiburon, which is the equivalent of
marriage on Earth. All Alex and Lizzie
know is that it’s becoming harder and
harder for them to be away from each
other. Too bad there’s a person bent on
having power and will do anything, even
commit murder to get it. And the killer
will kill anyone that gets in the way, no
matter who it is.
These two ladies are the queens of a scene
tear jerker." —Melisa, Euro-Reviews
"Can’t Say No is an erotic historical romance. Claudette is the perfect antagonist. Wade and Helen
work well together. Jonathon and Jenna are delightful. The plot is interesting
and well -written. Kissed By Fate reads like a beautiful fairy tale of
the future. The characters are well-developed and strong. Shauna is the bad
person that will go any lengths to keep the lovers apart. I love the plot and
enjoyed every minute of Kissed By Fate.
The Sins of Their Fathers is a delightful read. The
connecting threads are fathers that love their children and try to force
relationships on them. The children know what they want and rebel. Both stories
are excellent reads. Emma Wildes and Lara Santiago are talented authors. I
expected we will be hearing more from each of them. Fans of romantica will enjoy
The Sins of Their Fathers."
Review Your Book
"These two novellas are very different and very
alike. Kissed by Fate takes place in another galaxy; Can't Say No
is set in historical England. But both have powerful characters who follow in
the footsteps of their parents on their own paths to happiness and true love.
Kissed by Fate describes the relationship that
takes place between Alex of Tiburon, the half-human son of the Commander of
Tiburon, with a human woman. Or is she? Lara Santiago does a credible job of
world building in a short amount of space. Ms. Santiago captured the excitement
of knowing you’ve found your fated lifemate admirably.
In Can’t Say No, Emma Wildes takes us to Regency
England. The fact that “Wicked” Warrick is anything but adds to the lusciousness
of this tale of falling in love. If you’re a reader who likes Regency romance,
you are sure to enjoy Can’t Say No. And, a Regency wouldn’t be complete
without the requisite villain. Without giving away any spoilers, let me say you
won’t be disappointed in the ending of this story.
Often when I read a new author, I can hardly wait for
their next book. In the case of these two, though, I’m ready to read the first
books in these series. Even knowing how they turn out, Ms. Santiago and Ms.
Wildes have brought even the parents to life in these novellas...and I want to
find out their complete story."
—Rose, Whipped Cream
"Can’t Say No by Emma Wildes is a sequel to her book,
Savage Shores. This is the story of Jenna and Jonathon’s daughter, Helen.
She is supposed to marry a man she doesn’t love but loathes. She willfully
offers her virginity to “Wicked Warrick”. Warrick is surprised by her
proposition but it isn’t difficult to succumb to her wishes. Helen is a spirited
girl who knows her mind. She is stubborn and beautiful. Warrick’s reputation is
well-known and Helen finds it surprising that he doesn’t immediately bed her.
Warrick is intrigued by Helen’s intelligence, spirit and her beauty. He is a
honorable man capable of deep feelings. Helen and Warrick make an interesting
couple especially with how they initially meet. The author does a great job of
making them feel like real people. Readers will become emotionally invested in
their story. Can’t Say No is a lovely follow-up to Savage Shores
as we find out what happened to Jenna and Jonathon after they re-entered
Kissed By Fate by Lara Santiago is the sequel to
Just a Kiss and Just One Embrace. It is Alex Tiburon’s story. On
Planet Tiburon, kissing is reserve for life-partners. Shauna is desperate to
cement her relationship with Alex. However, Alex is not so desperate and finds
her in a compromising position releasing him from all obligations. He travels to
the planet Earth, where his mother is from, never expecting to find the woman of
his dreams. Lizzie, an Earthling, has never experienced what she receives from
Alex. It is mind-blowing sex for both of them. Alex and Lizzie’s sexual
chemistry is off the chart. They are a wonderful couple experiencing what most
people only dream of. Alex is a hunky hero and Lizzie is a perfect match for
him. The storyline has twists and turns as the lead couple tries to reach their
happily ever after. The author gives us a very satisfying ending that will have
romance lovers sighing!"

“This is your lucky day, Alex. You get twins.”
Emma Ruth strode through the door first. Lizzie followed,
keeping an eye on the ceiling waiting for an ice bath. Even with
no water poised to drench her, she figured that attending this
frat party was still a bad idea. What was she doing here?
A rousing cheer went up when Emma Ruth grabbed the face of a
tall, gorgeous stranger, presumably Alex, and prepared to plant
her lips on his. Lizzie saw Dustin muscle his way to the front
of the column through the throng of guys lined up to get a kiss.
“Kiss her. Kiss her.” The crowd in the frat house living room
chanted. At the last minute, Dustin stepped between them and
stuck his hand over Emma Ruth’s mouth to prevent the kiss and
pulled her out of the line to kiss her himself.
Robbie laughed. “Sorry, Alex, you only get one twin.”
Emma Ruth and Dustin disappeared into the fold of the party
leaving Lizzie alone at the threshold.
“Your turn.” Robby motioned with his bottle of beer. “Kiss Alex
or you can’t come in.”
The words “What if I don’t want to come in?” burned on
the tip of Lizzie’s tongue, until she glanced at the face of the
attractive guy before her. Looming a half a head taller than
anyone else in the room, the startled grin complete with dimples
shaping his mouth was infectious. Her gaze traveled upward to
his simmering chocolate brown eyes and lingered until her heart
turned over with a thud.
His tall, dark good looks made her reconsider her previous
dislike of kissing. The shape of his full lips, curved in what
looked like interested astonishment, enticed her. Besides, his
exotic male scent wafting around her made her throw any final
caution out the door and in its place the sincere desire to try
kissing once again.
The kiss would probably be like all the ones that Lizzie had
endured over the course of her lifetime. Uninspired. But
something in the determined set of his jaw and his steady gaze
made Lizzie take a step closer. She tilted her head back,
looking deeply into his eyes…and then the defensive end from the
school’s football team plowed into her, propelling her forward
into Alex’s arms.
“Hurry up. Kiss him and get out of the way. I’ve got some
drinking to do.”
Twisting in Alex’s arms, she shot a glare over her shoulder at
the muscle-bound doofas. He winked, smiled and skirted around
her to head inside the door.
Several more football jerks entered all at once and Lizzie was
shuffled to the side still clutched in the arms of the gorgeous
stranger named Alex. The line formed again as another girl came
to the door and they were forgotten.
Once they bumped into the wall, he said, “You don’t have
to-–kiss me–-if you don’t want to...” he paused and his gaze
went to her lips. Another enticing smile formed and he added,
“Perhaps we could get a beverage.” His sultry voice went almost
unheard in the ensuing loud kiss-a-thon from the football team
now in line to receive their kiss from whichever girl entered
the party next.
“Are you pledging this fraternity?” she asked.
He squinted as if processing her words for understanding before
answering, “No. I’m a guest. I’m from out of town.”
Ah. An anonymous someone she’d never see again. Lizzie caught
sight of Emma Ruth across the room in the arms of her latest
unsuitable boyfriend, Dustin. Her sister’s suggestion from
earlier to find someone to make out with for the evening rolled
around in her head.
Lizzie focused her stare at the masculine Adonis she pressed
against and something elusive tingled low in her belly. His
scent assaulted her again. He smelled sensational. Earthy.
Thinking about Emma Ruth, she looked Alex with another fresh
perspective. “Sorry you didn’t get to kiss my sister.”
His eyes squinted quizzically. “Who?”
“The girl ahead of me in line.”
His puzzled expression didn’t change.
“The girl you almost kissed right before I came in.” Her
exasperation finally elicited a nod of understanding.
“Oh, right. Her.” His lack of enthusiasm over missing out
on kissing Emma Ruth ratcheted him up a notch in her estimation.
It was the first such reaction from any of the male species
regarding her leggy blonde sister.
He gazed into her eyes. “I’d much rather kiss you.”
He grinned displaying his dimples again and Lizzie swore she
heard music. Sultry tones meant to seduce. Not taking her eyes
from his, she figured the music was coming from the party. She
stared, unable to think of anything to say. For the first time
since foolishly wanting to kiss Billy Ford in seventh grade,
Lizzie wanted to lock lips with someone.
She shoved away her distant and horrible first kiss memory and
concentrated on Alex’s sensuous engaging eyes. The lively world
around her faded into the background as her pounding heart took
Something inexplicable came over her. Something carnal. She
wanted to kiss Alex. She rarely sought kisses because of the
continual disappointment they wrought.
Before the urge receded, Lizzie slipped her arms around his neck
and pulled his head closer. She licked her lips quickly, closed
her eyes and pressed her mouth to Alex’s before she changed her
Electric sensation zipped across the lower half of her face as
the barest of connection transpired between them. Alex groaned
into her mouth. The vibration drilled down through the core of
her body. Her tongue darted out for a taste.
Alex reacted immediately and crushed her to his chest in a tight
embrace. Lizzie pushed her body even closer into his and seconds
later a weightless feeling came over her. But apparently that
was because she caused Alex to lose his balance when her
exuberant embrace knocked him off his feet. The funny thing was
the lurch didn’t cause their lips to part at first. Together
they stumbled into a half open coat closet door finally jarring
their mouths apart to keep their footing.
Lizzie, still awestruck over the sizzling kiss, stared with rapt
attention, barely noticing the small walk-in space with coats
shoved everywhere. Alex’s gaze scorched a hole through her as
they balanced, holding onto each other.
A single bulb burned overhead, shedding scant light down over
their loose embrace. Lizzie didn’t care about the dark. Without
taking her eyes off Alex, she closed the door. The click of the
latch drowned out the sounds of the loud party and cocooned them
in low light. The only other sound in the small space was their
Lizzie leaned into his frame, slung her arms around his neck and
placed her lips millimeters from his. “Kiss me,” she whispered.
He didn’t hesitate. His mouth lowered to hers again. Lizzie
closed her eyes, wishing for one more sizzling rocket ride.
Can't Say No by Emma
Wade grasped the
handle, put one foot on the step, and in the very act of
climbing into his carriage he froze.
It wasn’t empty.
“Please don’t say
or do anything so anyone knows I’m here.”
The soft entreaty
was almost as puzzling as finding the vehicle occupied. He
certainly arrived alone. Moreover his visitor was a
woman, though in the gloom it was difficult to see exactly who
she might be. Not sure what to do except honor her request, and
admittedly curious, he did as she asked and simply climbed in.
“Thank you.” She
sat primly on the seat, her hands folded in her lap, a dark
cloak draped around her slender shoulders. As his eyes adjusted
to the gloom, he recognized her with a small glimmer of
surprise. Even in the uncertain light there was no mistaking the
signature pale gleam of her hair or her strikingly beautiful
features. In the same soft tone, she asked, “Where can we go?”
Nonplussed, as he
didn’t really know her other than one brief introduction months
ago, he found himself at a loss for words momentarily. “I beg
The young daughter
of the Earl of Charbeau, the reigning beauty of the haute ton,
recently engaged to one of the wealthiest peers in England,

clarified my question. Where can we go that is completely

The word private
and this young woman set off an entire chorus of alarm bells
ringing. “I am quite sure I do not understand, for which, I
think, you cannot blame me, Lady Helen. We are barely
acquainted, it is late, you have no chaperone—”
“A chaperone would
spoil the whole thing. I want you, in fact, to ruin me.”
Wade stared at her
incredulously, not sure he wasn’t having some odd hallucination.
“Don’t worry, no
one will ever know it was you. I just need someone to…well…bed
me. I was certain you would know someplace discreet where we
wouldn’t be seen together.”
been propositioned before, but not with such bluntness, and at
least he usually had more than a passing acquaintance with the
woman. He knew Helen Richmond even less than he did Lady Taylor.
Wade lifted his brows and studied her lovely face in the dim
light. “Let me clarify this. You wish to be ruined? It
seems to me your future husband might take exception.”
“Exactly. If he
knows I am no longer a virgin, you can be sure he won’t want me
any longer. No one is more pompous and arrogant than the Duke of
Resdale. Surely you know him.”
Finally a glimmer
of light shone in the befuddling situation. Wade lounged back
and rubbed his jaw. “Yes,” he admitted, not caring much for the
man himself. In his opinion the adjectives applied quite well
though the handsome duke was both popular and considered very
charming by most of society. The exception apparently sat right
in front of him and unfortunately it was Resdale’s betrothed.
“It seems to me your approach to this is a bit drastic, my lady.
Why not sever your engagement by simply calling it off?”
shook her blonde head, a silky curl brushing her slender neck.
“You must understand, sir, as surely as the betrothal was forced
on me, so would be the marriage. My father’s family is very
close to the duke’s family, the Westerlands. The idea of the
marriage has existed since the day I was born, and the whole
situation is made worse by the fact Frederick has an apparent
penchant for me. On my part, I think he is boorish and spoiled.
In front of my parents, of course, he is charming and attentive,
but beneath the polished public surface, he is completely
different. No, I will do anything to make sure he is the one who
decides against it.”
There wasn’t much
doubting her conviction. Wade gave a small sardonic smile. “May
I ask, pray tell, why was I selected for this honor?”
didn’t really need to ask, damn Jason and James to perdition.
Just because his older twin brothers were considered two of the
most notorious rakes in all of Britain, he somehow had the same
reputation. No one seemed to notice he did not pursue
every attractive female in sight. In fact, he disapproved of
their iniquitous lifestyles for the most part and shunned the
idea of a retinue of different females constantly in his bed. He
believed in feeling a genuine passion for a woman before
becoming intimately involved, not merely passing lust.
For the first
time, the very lovely Miss Richmond looked other than completely
self-possessed. Her long lashes lowered a fraction. Under the
cloak she wore a low-cut fashionable ball gown and he saw the
upper curves of her ivory breasts quiver as she took a breath.
“First, I chose you because of my mother.”
“Your mother?” He
stifled a mirthless laugh. “This just becomes more interesting
by the moment. I am perishing to know the segue between your
mother, myself, and your determination to thwart Resdale’s
passion for you.”
