Loving the Earl: A Loveswept Historical Romance by Sharon Cullen
Having vowed never to wed again, widowed viscountess Claire Hartford is about to do the unthinkable: travel unaccompanied across the continent in search of a lover. Her adventure begins sooner than expected, when she meets a magnificent cloaked stranger on her ship’s gangplank. He is Lord Blythe, a man whispered about in London’s ballrooms and drawing rooms, a scandalous rogue hell-bent on seduction.
Nathan Ferguson curses the day he agreed to look out for his best friend’s wayward sister. The charismatic earl is traveling to Paris to uncover the truth behind his father’s death, but his desire for Claire threatens to be his undoing. From France to Italy, on a journey of passionate discovery and danger, Nathan is honor-bound to protect her—from himself most of all. What can he offer Claire? Only love, as he sets out to prove to the woman of his dreams that she belongs to him—body, heart, and soul.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really liked this book! It was historical, interesting, fun and sexy. I liked the interactions between Nathan and Claire. I love how it brought up the way women were treated. It was quite the read! I wasn't able to put it down from the moment I started to the finish. It had everything I look for in a good historical romance.
Although well written, at times I was annoyed by how much "inner dialogue" went on, but not enough to ruin the story. It was still great! Plus, the cover is hot! Whoa! Love it. I think this is well worth reading!
