Beguiling the Earl by Suzanna Medeiros my review
Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth
Part of the Landing a Lord series, it can be read as a standalone. I found this book enchanting and enjoyable. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and the ones before it too. Beguiling the Earl is delicious and wonderful. Secrets that can tear a country apart are being sold to the enemy, and it’s up to Kerrick to find a traitor, but when his heart lies with another, how much is he willing to give up for the country he has sworn to protect?
Catherine Evans shouldn’t have been bored.
Catherine Evans is having her first season, but she already knows who she wishes to marry. The Earl of Kerrick is the only man for her, and she’s hoping that he will come to feel the same way about her. Kerrick is desperately trying to see his best friend’s sister-in-law as a younger sister, but soon realizes that what he feels for her is in no way at all brotherly. But duty compels him to court another woman. Granted it’s only supposed to be a brief courtship in name only, then he’ll be able to follow his heart. But outside forces seem determined to keep him away from Catherine and married to a woman he doesn’t love.
Kerrick,” she exclaimed. She managed a quick smile of dismissal in Thornton’s direction before hurrying across the last few feet that separated her from the man she’d been waiting to see again. She stopped just short, her breath far too uneven to have been caused by the light exercise of the dance. She almost reached for his hands but resisted the impulse. She’d learned enough during her time in London to know such a display of affection would cause raised eyebrows and not a small amount of gossip. “Miss Evans. It is so nice to see you again.” He smiled down at her, his blue eyes crinkling at the corners, and joy unfurled within her. He was just as handsome as she remembered. “You devil, you promised to dance with me during my season. And here we are, a full three weeks in, and you haven’t attended even one of the balls.” He affected an expression of exaggerated dismay. “You wound me of such negligence. Unfortunately, I had pressing matters to attend to which kept me from town.” She pretended to give his words careful consideration before replying. “I’ll forgive you. But just this once.” His eyes shone with amusement. “Wretch.”
