NEVER SEND A DEBUTANTE
William Ryder, Earl of Castleton, is at the end of his noble rope. Not only has he broken ties with his longtime mistress, his mother has publicly announced her wish for him to marry a suitable young lady―if only to help him raise the twins left in his care. Hiring a governess should solve some of Will’s problems…but when he meets the candidate in question, he finds himself in an entirely new predicament.
TO DO A WALLFLOWER’S JOB
Miss Margaret Lacey is brainy, beautiful, and, once upon a time, Will’s betrothed. But she bowed out of the engagement―and, since then, has never been the same. A tragic accident robbed her of everything, and now, at age twenty-three, her marital prospects are slim to none. Penniless but not without pride, Meg convinces the vexingly handsome Will to hire her for the job. What neither of them could have expected from this arrangement, however, is an attraction that burns stronger than ever. Are these two lost souls finally ready to be schooled in the art of love?
About the Author:
Anna Bennett started swiping romances from her mom’s bookshelf as a teenager and decided that books with balls, dukes, and gowns were the best. So, when she had the chance to spend a semester in London she packed her bags—and promptly fell in love with the city, its history, and its pubs. She dreamed of writing romance, but somehow ended up a software analyst instead.
Fortunately, a few years and a few careers later, Anna found her way back to writing the stories she loves and won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart®. She lives in Maryland with her husband and three children, who try valiantly not to roll their eyes whenever she quotes Jane Austen. Other weaknesses include reality TV, cute shoes, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
5 out of 5 stars
I had been excited for My Brown-Eyed Earl since it was first announced and I was right to be because this book was a phenomenal historical romance! The story was everything I wanted it to be and so much more. I couldn't get enough of Meg and Will and their romance for many reasons. First off, Meg was just a great heroine to follow. She was feisty and independent. And while she was stubborn and quick to jump to conclusions at times she was still very likable and I loved her so much! Secondly, Will was EVERYTHING! He was the type of hero that makes me love historical romance novels as much as I do. The perfect blend of good and bad. Thirdly, the twins were absolutely wonderful. Anyone who knows me knows I have a love/hate relationship with children in romance novels, but when it came to Diana and Valerie I just loved them so much! They were absolutely adorable and it was really heartwarming to see the little family that formed with Will, Meg and the twins throughout the novel. Lastly, I loved the way the author balanced all the romantic drama and other drama going on this book with all the adorable, humorous scenes in the book. It really made this book the perfect read and right now this book is tied with The Untouchable Earl for my favorite historical romance read of the year!!
