How to Catch an Errant Earl by Amy Rose Bennett
From one scandal to another, it seems that Miss Arabella just can’t seem to stay out of trouble since being expelled from a young ladies academy. Now she’s been whisked away to the continent with her Aunt whom she knows does not like her in the least, who continually berates her bemoaning the fact that Arabella will never be able to attract a well-connected husband.
Believe it or not, Arabella, a blue-stocking at heart, would rather have her nose stuck in a medical text then even consider being wed! However, Arabella is forced to accompany her family on the Grand Tour in Switzerland. Rather than follow along Arabella is most anxious to see the dungeons in a castle where she unexpectedly runs into the the most handsomest man she has ever laid eyes on, the rakehell-in-exile, Gabriel, the Earl of Langdale. Knowing what the gossips had told of the man, Arabella realized the only thing worse than getting married to a man like him would be to fall in love with him where his philandering ways would only break her heart.
Nicknamed the Errant-Earl, Gabriel Holmes-Fitzgerald is no stranger to scandal, but when caught in flagrante with the young beauty Arabella Jardine, he’s obliged to offer her his hand. He promised he would do the right thing by her, but he was honest enough to tell her he’s never been in love and probably would never love her.
Now, this was not a great beginning precisely because Arabella knew she was partially if not fully in love with him. So a deal was struck. Until Gabriel could completely prove to his vile cousin that he was the true heir to the Earldom, he and Arabella would not have relations until no doubt remained. Until then, they would remain in separate bedchambers.
This was a very charming story and the dialogs, and the sensual innuendoes were highly entertaining. The pace of the story was such that it kept this reader fully engaged until the very end. Definitely a RECOMMENDED Read!
