I have received a free e-copy of the book My Wicked Earl by Tammy Andresen to review.
Here is the book blurb.
Lord Rex Abelman, Earl of Casterly, has no intention of marrying. His life is that of an adventurer. But he cannot deny that Lady Daffodil is as sweet and funny as she is beautiful. Nor can help but wonder what life might be like if he were a better man.
Rex is a rake and a rogue who has sworn off marriage. He is the last man Daffodil should give her attention. So why do her eyes drift to him at every opportunity?
This is the fifth book in the Wicked Lords of London series, a set that I have been enjoying. This one continues where the previous title My Duke’s Desire ended, but would also work well as a stand-alone read.
It begins with Lady Daffodil trying to cook a meal for herself and her 15 year old brother Jacob, as the only servant left, their housekeeper Mrs Fields is now bedridden due to a fall. Their family is in a financial crisis due to her late father’s debts. They are alone as their mother and sister Violette have left to meet several potential suitors. But all Daffodil has succeeded in, is burning the meat and filling the kitchen with smoke, when a strange handsome man enters and carries her upstairs with Jacob following. Who is this rogue taking liberties?
It is Rex, the Earl of Casterly who has been sent by his best friend Theo, the Duke of Waverly to escort Daffodil and Jacob to attend their sister Violette’s marriage to Theo, since their mother has now fallen ill and cannot travel. But they can’t go yet, as who will look after Mrs Fields?
It will take a few days to put a plan into place, so having been thrown together by circumstances, each learns about the other. You can sense the attraction buzzing. What will ensue?
My Wicked Earl is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.27 in Kindle format. As usual, Tammy has delivered another nice short romantic story.
About the author
USA Today Bestselling Author, Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics. It was inevitable that at the age of 18, she headed off to Simmons College, where she studied English literature and education. She never left Massachusetts but some of her heart still resides in Maine and her family visits often.
