Too Wicked to Tame (The Derrings Book 2) Kindle Edition
Would a Reluctant Beauty Ever Wed . . .
Headstrong Lady Portia Derring has an impeccable pedigree . . . and not a penny to her name. Which is why she is alone on the rain-swept Yorkshire moor, waiting for a wealthy earl she has never met but whom her family insists she wed. When she's nearly trampled by the blackguard's stallion, Portia is more determined than ever to refuse Heath Moreton's suit. Handsome devil he may be, but she could never marry a rogue who's so clearly out of control!
A Wild, Incorrigible Beast?
An avowed bachelor, scion of the notorious "Mad" Moreton clan, Heath won't be shackled in matrimony. Why then does this rain-drenched beauty excite him so? Desire consumes him, but the eminently beddable lady resists his well-practiced seductions. Now only one route remains: Heath must ignore his bad blood, vanquish his inner beast . . . and prove to Portia that she's the only woman capable of taming his heart.
About the Author
Sophie Jordan grew up on a pecan farm in the Texas hill country, where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows.--This text refers to the mass_market edition.

There are a couple of items I wish the author had addressed, such as a confrontation between Portia and Astrid, as well as a confrontation between Heath and his grandmother. Those seemed like important bits of the story, which were either skipped, or covered in passing.
Additionally, having just read all of SJ's historical romances in one go, it's quite noticeable that she repeats a number of expressions, such as: "drop of moisture that rises up to kiss her thumb". I saw it in at least 4 of the books, and it became annoying and formulaic. I am not sure if this is due to the author or to faulty editing. Either way, it should be addressed.
