Review: The Earl in My Bed by Stacy Reid
The Earl in My Bed - Stacy Reid

3.75 stars - Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Sylvester and Daphne haven’t had an easy marriage. Six years ago they met and had an instant connection; one that was spoiled when Daphne’s father threatened to ruin Sylvester’s sister unless the earl came to heel. Since their fateful wedding, Sylvester has pretty much ignored Daphne, and the love she had for him has given way to a desperation to break free from the holding pattern she’s been in for years. Daphne is determined to court a scandal so big her husband will be forced to divorce her. There’s just one hitch in her plan: her husband doesn’t want a divorce.

Having recently escaped an assassination attempt, Sylvester believes it’s time to do his duty and beget an heir. Only Daphne isn’t exactly prepared to welcome him with open arms. For the first time, Sylvester is seeing past his own anger to truly look at Daphne. And he’ll have to do some heavy wooing if he wants to keep the wife he’s only just realizing is his perfect match.

I love good second chance romance and The Earl in My Bed fits that favored trope fairly well. Daphne and Sylvester have been in a strange freeze for the past six years – married, yet not. Sylvester is the only man Daphne has ever craved, but I loved that she didn’t just fall into his arms when he decided he wanted to be her husband in truth. Sylvester has his reasons for having been cold toward Daphne for years. Her father’s machinations nearly cost his sister her life and that’s not something a sibling can look past. Did I want to shake Sylvester for placing blame on Daphne? Of course. But Stacy Reid does a good job of balancing his flaws with strengths. Sylvester is fighting hard to abolish slavery in all British territories, risking his life in the process. He’s not a good husband at the beginning of this story, but he is a good man which means you want to see him succeed. I enjoyed the fact that Sylvester is self-aware enough to realize that he has royally screwed up with Daphne. She’s a kind, patient woman who has reached her breaking point because of him. Their romance in is slow to build, mostly because there’s so much distrust and hurt. I liked that the love story unfolded organically, that Daphne and Sylvester got to truly know one another before things heated up.

The Earl in My Bed is the second book in the Rebellious Desires series, but it can easily be read as a standalone (though it was lovely to get to see Georgiana and Rhys again). I always get caught up in Ms. Reid’s writing and this story was no exception. I finished this book looking forward to what scandals the next Rebellious Desires book has in store for readers.

Fabulous Historical Romance
Earl of St. Seville - Christina McKnight

Earl Of St. Seville is an awesome historical romance by Christina McKnight.  This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. McKnight has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with amazing, lovable characters.  Patience is determined to inform fighters and sponsors of fights the dangers of pugilist pursuits.  Sinclair's father let the coffers run empty making bad investments.  Sin goes to London to try and win enough money fighting to rescue his family and workers on Brownsea.  Patience and Sin's story is packed with drama, action, humor and spice.  I enjoyed Earl Of St. Seville from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Christina McKnight in the future.  Earl Of St. Seville is part of The Wicked Earls' Club but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Spies, danger, love and passion, kept me reading
An Earl in Wolf's Clothing - M. Emily E. Windsor-Cragg

This was a fun read. I loved the interactions between Sophie and Bram. With all the subterfuge to keep Bram's secret, Sophie's ability to make the best of a situation was great. There were laughs as Sophie and her friend do their own sneaking around. Bram was a determined and gallant young man, and I fell in love with him. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the next.

I received a copy of this book through Book Obsessed Chicks Review team, and this is my unsolicited review.

Earl of St. Seville
Earl of St. Seville - Christina McKnight When it comes to love the adjectives are numerous and the emotions are boundless, but there is only ever one conclusion. Love is facing the inevitable, to gain the impossible. Earl of St.. Seville examines love in all it's glory. From the tragedy that inspires a daughter's crusade to the man who has her questioning it all. Patience is the daughter of an exceptional woman. Her mother broke down barriers in a male dominated sport, but in the long run the price was too high. Now the daughter she left behind, will risk everything to protect a man she has only just met. Even at the cost of her heart. Sin and Patience are magnificently captivating. From tragedy rises inspiration. Ms. McKnight continues to captivate readers with her empathetic stories of faith, courage and love.
