Katherine Cartwright wants no part of love, especially after seeing the relationship between her parents. But when two London Seasons don't produce a husband, her father decides to marry her off to the highest bidder. He needs money to pay off his gambling bills. When the new Earl of Bowcott hears about the deal, James makes sure his bid will secure Kate's future. But when Kate gets to her new home, there is no Earl. And why is his staff so secretive about him? Who is this new Earl that paid her father off for marriage to her? You will find all of the answers and more in Karen Thornell's To Love An Earl.
I wanted to read this book because I love Regency stories and I find that Karen Thornell does an excellent job of writing a compelling story that will have readers coming back for more. She creates likable and interesting characters that are realistic and believable. I really liked Kate and I hurt for her because of the horrific home life she endured, with a disturbing, despicable father who was just plain mean to her. Thankfully, James is a sweetheart. But I did get frustrated at him because he kept digging himself deeper and deeper into his lies. I was dying for the two to truly meet again. The story is pretty predictable, but it's fun reading how it all pans out until the end. I thoroughly enjoyed To Love An Earl and can't wait to read Karen Thornell's next Regency book, Pursuing Miss Hall. If you love a good, clean romance read, I encourage you to check this one out.
