Passion’s Seed had the beau monde in a panic, because it was all about ‘them’! If it were ever revealed that she, one of the aristocracy’s own, was the author, she would be ruined.Now she was contemplating doing something equally scandalous. The ‘rules’ dictated that, as a woman, she had to wait until marriage to enjoy pleasures men were allowed when single. Lady Babs, however, had other ideas, for she had fallen in love with the man known as Lord Wildfire, a dashing duke with a penchant for the ladies but not for marriage.But while she yearned for Lord Wildfire, another man lusted after her. And Sir Edward was willing to go to any lengths to make her his—including following his hunch that Lady Babs was somehow involved in the publication of Passion’s Seed …**Note: This is an updated version of an earlier title written as Claudette Williams.

    One thing that I love about Claudy Conn is that her heroines are always strong independent women who refused to a doormat. The women that the author write about are not silly little girls with no sense of self and lacking a backbone. Claudy Conn's heroines are what we modern women are and what we want our daughters to be.This story was fun, flirty and full of adventure and intrigue. It kept me flipping the pages to see what would happen next. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments as well that keep the story light and engaging.Overall Babs and Nick 's story is awesome and makes you want another story with just them!

    This is another of Claudy Conn's Historical Romances (which I had stopped reading until I started reading Claudy's HR books), with her amazing writing style, grabs you in from the first page until the last. In fact, you'll hate for the story to end!This story is about Lady Barbara (Babs to family and friends) Waverly who happens to be a curious, intriguing minx. Her worst offense now is that wrote wrote a book "Passion's Seed" which happens to be about the haute ton. Everyone is raving about it and wonders who wrote it. She wants to use the money to help her father to pay off some gambling debts which he has accrued since the death of his wife. Babs is going on to her third season in London and her Aunt Jane and cousin Corrine are asked to come to help curb Babs.Then we have our hero, Nicholas (Nick), the 9th Duke of Barrington also known as Lord Wildfire for his actions on the battlefield and because of his ladies! He claims he doesn't want to get married. However, he meets Babs and would love to have her but his conscience knows he can't do anything to an innocent (although Babs doesn't think that way) so he just dallies with her. So the chase is on and can you imagine who is going to win? Then we have our villian, Sir Edward Denton, who is a very rich man of the ton. He decides he wants to marry Babs even though she doesn't want to marry him. He'll do anything to get her and he hatches a plan to do so. You'll have to read the book to find out what the outcome is! We have so many interesting characters in this story and I just adored Count Otto, who is Babs stalwart friend and protector.This story has has lucious love scenes, intrigue, kidnapping and loads of fun. You'll so love this book just as I did. For 18yrs and over.

    First off I have to say that I LOVED the Author's note! It was really great!Another fantastic love tale by Claudy Conn. I enjoyed this regency romance. This book was filled with details and events that often go on in society during those times. They are intriguing and I love how Claudy writes about them. She adds the special twist to them making it so much better. Her characters are always realistic and they always standout. The secondary characters always shine as well. In this book there was a lot going on but I found it very easy to follow along. A lot of relationships and events happening but it all flowed perfectly together easily capturing your attention to the very end. I loved Babs character. She shined brightly through the whole book. She was sassy and her antics were too funny. Nick was just the man she needed. This book was filled with mystery, suspense, action, emotion and oh so much passion. Everything you could possibly want. A must read!

    Review also posted at Book Lovin' MamasI love historical romances and "Wildfire Kiss" definitely is an amazing regency historical romance that I had a hard time putting down. The Duke actually prevented me from working on college assignments last week...but that was okay because the Duke was VERY worth it. Lady Babs has written a book, but she's trying to keep it a secret that she wrote it. She never thought her book would be a big success and now she really has to keep it hush, hush that she wrote it otherwise it could make her family upset and ruin her reputation. She just wanted to help her father out when she wrote it.She's on her third season out, and she's trying everything to stay away from getting married to the suitors that her father and her Aunt want her to marry because she just wants to have fun. She knows she should get married before enjoying pleasures with a man, but Lord Wildfire otherwise known as Duke of Barrington is hard to resist when she first meets him. Even Lord Wildfire is having a hard time resisting to the beautiful Lady Babs. There is another man, Sir Edward, lusting after Lady Babs though and he will do at anything to win her over and make her his wife. Lady Babs is going to have to make Sir Edward realize though that she is in love with another. Of course Sir Edward is going to do the unthinkable to get Lady Babs for his own.My thoughts on Wildfire Kiss are of course that I loved it. I think I already said that in the beginning, but I thought I say it again. =) Claudy Conn's writing style is amazing. I actually found myself imagining going back in time when reading this book. I love the regency romance genre and Claudy's book definitely kept me clicking on my Kindle to finish the book. =)I absolutely adored the Duke or aka Lord Wildfire. His name "Wildfire" has a meaning, but you will have to read to find out why he is called that. =) He had certain qualities that suckered me in just like Lady Babs was suckered in. Lady Babs, is a female character I definitely clicked with because she did not let anyone change her when she went out during the season. She had her Aunt trying to convince her she needed to be with a certain male gentleman, but Lady Babs just wanted to do her own thing. Lady Babs even convinced her cousin on finding love when she was meant to. This is a book I do plan on reading it again because I know I will miss the characters. I highly recommend this to historical romance readers and readers who love the regency style romances. You will fall in love with the Duke and Lady Babs just like I did. You also will fall in love with Claudy Conn's writing style and will want to read her other books that she has written.

    "What I need is a man who will smile at my antics...perhaps curb me a bit... but never tame me" - this is a favorite passage from Wildfire Kiss spoken by Lady Barbara Waverly ("Babs")to the Duke of Barrington (Nick) as advised by her friend Count Otto Stauffenberg. Lady Babs is like a breath of fresh air-an entertaining and likeable character. At 21, she refuses to marry for convenience and despite an array of wealthy suitors she refuses to enter a loveless marriage and refuses to follow behavior for women set through the dictates of men. Thus she goes about acting on her own accord and having fun with her friend Otto. When Babs meets the Duke of Barrington, she thinks he is the most handsome man she has ever seen. She recognizes that she is his match. The Duke on the other hand does not see himself matched with anyone. And though he flirts with Babs, he tries to maintain a safe emotional distance from Babs but the distance was not far enough and the flirtatious Babs got him just where she wanted him. Lady Babs innocently demonstrates the act of "taking the bull by the horn" and living in the moment. This is a well written story without the fluff. It is fast moving, entertaining and reminds us not to take life too serious. I like the light heartedness of all the characters and How often does a "knight in shining armor" appear when he's needed. For Lady Babs, he was right on time.

    Wildfire Kiss by Claudy ConnLady Barbara ‘Babs’ Waverly is on her third season. She stays close to her good friend Count Otto Stauffenberg. For you see it’s not that Babs is lacking for male attention….it’s that she wants a marriage that is a love match. And her dear friend Otto just wants to be left alone. So together they keep the wolves at bay….well some of the wolves. It seems that Babs latest discretion has her father calling in the big gun, Aunt Jane.This book had so many great characters that come to life and you find yourself hoping they all find happiness but alas there were too many men and only two women. There is Sir Edward ‘Ned’ Danton who is nice looking and wealthy. Sir Charles is also handsome and quite a jovial chap. The Duke of Barrington, who is Charles cousin and friend, is definitely not lacking for female attention but now that he’s a Duke he may have to think about an heir but he’s not ready for the marriage mart yet. There are so many things going on but the book is not too busy. There are secrets and blackmail, love, laughter, adventure and even Lord Byron. **Sexual situations and languagehttp://justjudysjumbles.blogspot.com/...

    I don't like romance novels, so I don't know why I really picked this one up. I snagged it through Bookbub for free. Bab's is a spitfire that is not willing to conform to what society at the time expects for a woman. She's an independent woman. Has already penned a scandalous story of high society. Flirts uncontrollably.speaks her mind.Lord wildfire sweeps in and stirs emotions she only can dream of. But it's Sir Edward that messes up everything.I did enjoy Bab's. I also loved Lord Wildfire. What I didn't care for was how the story didn't evolve more into the characters. I really would had liked to learn more of each. Otto would be one that could had been developed more.I also am not one that cares for the gushy romance. Yes, some was exciting. But I knew who would win the girl by the time Lord Wildfireentered the story.

    from the beginning he held my heart.So much love from this story. From broken hearts to completed marigaes, leaving me in aww. Before I get into the review. The cover! Take a couple moments to look. Yum right?lady Bab's is our main focus and of course i won't forget the dear side characters. and Corry, both have personalities strong enough to dominate the book. By the end I loved them.Wildfire is our very Delicious man. Although people cal him names for various reasons he lives up to them in some ways, but not in others. A loving man in a need of a certain women. From the start both Wildfire and Bab's have a growing relationship that spread like a wildfire. Haha get it. ;) Sir Edward would be considered the bad guy in this novel, but once again Claudy Conn writes a villain to fall in love with.A charming love story, so make sure to pick it up and read it.

    Wildfire Kiss, a wonderfull Historical Romance, complete with blackmail and secrets. The Lady Babs a high spirited beauty, she didn't lack for suitors. However she was looking for 'The One', she had made up her mind she would only marry for love, rather than making a good match of convenience. Babs thought she had found her man when she met the very charming Duke of Barrington, also known as Wildfire, partly due to his reputation amongst the ladies. He constantly confused her sending her very mixed signals as she delighted and surprised him often with her antics. I can't forget Sir Edward who was completely obsessed with the Lady Babs determined to make her his at all cost, I almost felt sorry for the poor man....almost !

    I really enjoy historical romance, but unfortunately this one was just an "ok" read for me. I enjoyed Babs, Nick, Corry and Freddy. Their relationships were sweet and entertaining. I found myself loving Nick and Babs and wanted so much more of them. Babs has a wonderful spirit and was fun to get to know. Nick, of course handsome, rich and a blue-eyed rake, was also enjoyable. Sir Edward just irritated me from the beginning! Don't get me wrong there was romance, scandal and intrigue, but the story was choppy in parts and rushed in others. It is a quick read once you get into it, but before you know it the ending is upon you and you are feeling like you missed something.

    This read is full of climaxes and plateaus. Something exciting will happen to make you continue the read, but then some dull conversation comes into play and we must wait some before the action continues. Also this read takes on multiple points of view and frankly, I didn't care to know what some characters were saying and thinking. Yes it added to the story and made them more rounded characters, but the story would have been just as well if they had remained flat characters. It was good but contained nothing to set it apart from other reads.

    Babs, Lady Barbara Waverly, is in her third season. She's the sweethesrt of the Haute Ton, but hasn't found the man whom she's willing to make a match with. She's a gal before her time and has written a risky book to boot.Wildfire earned his nickname first on the battlefield and kept it because of romantic pursuits. He meets Babs and lust fills his veins, but he usually leaves the innocent alone.This books has many turns and twists. Blackmail, accidents, and passion. Everything you can expect from Claudy Conn.

    This is one of the better Claudy Conn books I've read. It broke from the mold a little, which was nice. I found the relationship between the H and h more believable than most of her work. She is a big proponent of insta-love, unlike me. But this one worked a little better for me. I liked the storyline, except for a great coincidence at the end that allowed that H to win the day. (No spoilers!) It could have been written around. But that's a bit of a nitpick.Overall, I liked it pretty well.

    This was a quick, fun read! I got this for free as an e-book and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. The characters weren't hugely developed by any means, but I quickly grew to love Babs (although I don't think I'll ever love that name for a character...) and her relationship with the duke. It was short and sweet and I felt content even without a whole lot of backstory.

    I read this within the Regency box set and thoroughly enjoyed this part of the set because this the only one I had not read. I always love when young women are never going to do something and "bam" something or someone changes the mind. Usually a fine man, lol. I liked this headstrong woman even as she fought her attraction. Claudy Conn does good regency romances with just enough heat to make it interesting. Enjoy, I did.

    Almost a parody of the romance genre, this little novel flies by with static characters and plot points that seem to appear out of nowhere. The characters' intuition allows leaps to be made that otherwise would have taken time and effort to accomplish. Overall, this was a disappointing little diversion.

    Wildfire Kiss by Claudy Conn is a terrific historic read. Now, I am not an expert on historical events and time periods, but this book was a joy to read. ultimately, a love story is a love story, no matter the setting. And there was just enough angst in this story line to keep me turning the pages. I will certainly be reading more from this author.

    I absolutely LOVED this book. From start to finish I was hooked, and couldn't put it down. I loved the story that unfolded and fell in love with the characters. Babs was by far my favorite and was a wonderful heroine. Claudy knocked it out of the park with this one, as she always does. I definitely recommend this book and I know you won't be disappointed. :)

    Lady Babs & Nick the Duke + Corry & Sir Frederick = 2 love stories in one book only one sex scene (Babs & Nick).Otto the count friend of Bab, Charles cousin and friend of the Duke gang up to help Babs out of Edward's (blackmailing her) reach.As usual CC delivers though I do like her Faes books a lot more.

    I am so totally on board with whatever this author writes (so far). This book is set in Regency England (if I remember my time periods correctly). It follows the courtship (read: adventures) of Babs & Nick. I can always count on plenty of drama, action, intrigue, & romance in her books. Loved it.

    I believe I read this book once before but it was just as good the second time around. I love a good romance where the woman doesn't follow the rules of society. If she was docile and followed the rules, then she would be boring. Lady Babs is nowhere near boring. A spitfire like her needs a rake and I wasn't disappointed.

    A romantic romp with no pretensions to be anything more. I rather like The Regency period, when people in England were certainly not the prudes so many of them aspired to be during Victoria's reign, and knowing what so many real people of the era got up to, from books and biographies of the period, I find these characters quite believable, and the whole story fun to read.

    This was a very pleasant summer read. The story of the feisty Lady Babs who wrote an expose of London society back in the days when ladies didn't dare to do such things. The leading lady fights off boredom and suitors by living life to the full with her friends. In essence ; Jane Austenesque with sex !!

    This was an entertaining bit of brain candy. It was a bit shorter than I anticipated as a good 40 pages of the e-book is previews of other books. However, the characters were fun and I enjoyed it for what it was. I just think the lack of length led to some lack of character and plot development.

    Claudy has a good writing style and I enjoyed the Author's note.Babs wanted a love match not just any idiot with coin. Love Babs spunk and she wasn't lacking in backbone. Good read will look for other books by Claudy Conn.

    No real surprises. The fiery maiden ends up with the man of her dreams. I don't usually read romance novels. I was drawn to a women who published her writing and had a mind of her own. I also like that the women rode astride and were not afraid to face some adversity.

    Great book that kept me interested. Thought pacing was good and liked the characters. Only criticism is I was confused at first over who was who as introductions to characters was not clear enough for me.
