Taming an Unrepentant Earl by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Taming an Unrepentant Earl by Tammy Andresen to review.

Taming an Unrepentant Earl by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

A scarred lord and a ruined lady…

Thanks to his bravery, and subsequent injury on the battlefield, Harold Maddox has been given an earldom and a leave of absence as commander in order to heal. While he doesn’t give a bullocks about the title, he’ll take the leave to settle a personal matter. After the loss of his best friend, he’s promised to care for Chesterfield’s sister, Miss Sophia Chesterfield. And he’s promised himself once he’s healed, he’ll avenge his friend’s death. The problem is that Sophie is far too beautiful for him to remain indifferent and her sharp tongue riles him in all sorts of interesting ways. He needs to return to the war and he can’t afford distractions now.

Sophie Chesterfield wouldn’t marry at all except that she can’t very well have a baby without a husband. What she needs is a nice quiet man who causes little interruption in her orderly life. And that man is definitely not Lord Ridgeby. From the moment the man enters her house is a force of destruction on her quiet life. What’s more, he heats her blood and sets fire to everything she thought she wanted. Not that it matters. He’s made it clear he’s leaving and she doesn’t want an overbearing beast like him anyway. Does she?

This is book 10 in the Taming a Duke’s Heart series. These stories are all suitable as stand-alone reads. I’ve previously read and enjoyed book 5 – Taming a Savage Gentleman and book 8 – Taming a Defiant Duke.

The story starts with army Captain Harry Maddox recovering from a hip injury sustained on the battlefield when his best friend Alfred Chesterfield died saving Harry. He is keen to return to the field to avenge his friend’s death, but in the meantime he is travelling to Alfred’s former home to fulfil Alfred’s request to make provision for his only living family member, his sister Sophie. He plans  to take her to a home for destitute women, run by his own sister.

On arrival, he finds not one, but two women in need of assistance, Sophie and her cousin Miss Danielle Frazier. Sophie thinks he has come to be their guardian, so that suitors can then call. So she is not happy when she hears his plan. And what about the sparks of attraction that have been sizzling since they met?

Meanwhile Harry visits Alfred’s barrister and discovers that Alfred has actually requested him to be Sophie’s guardian until she is 25, to manage her funds and house and to introduce her into society. He returns to tell her, but she is still not pleased, finding him overbearing. She does not want to be told what to do. She just wanted a puppet guardian.

The sooner this is all sorted and he can return to the army the better isn’t it? So the introductions to suitors begin.

Taming an Unrepentant Earl is available on Amazon, currently priced at £3.28 in Kindle format. Another nice light romantic story from Tammy.

    I can’t believe how many books she has written! They always sound entertaining from your description, but I know they’re not really my cup of tea.
