  • Perfection!

    Famous last words as they discussed their marriage of convenience. "Ye would have yer freedom to return to the hospital, and comfort in that ye are knowingly with a man ye dinna have to love," James MacKenzie said. "And you would be released of the obligation to wed your cousin's fiancee by marrying a woman you do not have to love," Lady Penelope concluded. "Then it appears we have an agreement, Lord Oakhurst." Thus the wonderful journey begins! Such a different start to a story that I seriously could not stop once I began. The newly minted Earl of Oakhurst was in dire need to "learn" to be an Earl and the first direction he had from his beloved Grandmother was to find a bride. But he had a bad experience in his past and had no desire to become close or love another woman. Penelope had no wish to marry but she was being pushed into it in order to maintain working with patients at the hospital. It was "unseemly" for an unwed lady to be on her own working. She also felt she might be unable to fall in love with a gentlman. A slow burn that will just make you sigh with contentment. But don't be too much in a hurry because there are some bumps and curves along the way!! Loved these two!! Perfect!!!

  • Kept me reading, loved the characters

    A fun read. Penelope was an enjoyable character with her thirst for knowledge in the medical field and straightforward personality. James was a gentleman, just as much a book worm as Penelope. I loved how they accepted each other and taught each other about their own specialties. With the secondary characters helping them along, the story kept me entertained beginning to end. This is my unsolicited review.

  • Wonderful five star Regency romance

    As usual for this author, we have another romantic, lol funny at times, touching, wonderful H/h that you can’t help but fall in love with. Gemma and Lady Penelopes mother are delightful. This story is James MacKenzies, the new Earl of Oakhurst and Lady Penelope Keats story. James has no desire to be the next Earl and Penelope has no desire to give up her dreams by having to marry. But, this not meant to be, for either of them. When they meet, they agree to marry, without love or entanglements to remedy their situation. This is where the fun begins. Alastair Johnstone, the Earl of Benton, is one of my heroes from another of her books, makes an appearance in this book. I highly recommend you read The Earl of Benton as well. Ms. Martin has a knack for writing such charismatic, loveable main and secondary characters that you never want to say goodbye to them. I love her writing style because they take me away from the reality of the hear and now. Thank you Madeline Martin for sharing your gift with us. I was gifted this book and am voluntarily reviewing. My opinions are my own

  • wonderful romance

    Madeline Martin has written two books in the Wicked Earl’s Club series: The Earl of Benton and now The Earl of Oakhurst. Both stories are connected and worth reading in succession. The Earl of Oakhurst picks up a year after The Earl of Benton closes. I enjoyed this book, and read it in one afternoon. I couldn’t put it down. I thought Martin did a good job developing the heroine of this story - Lady Penelope Keats. I liked the way Martin wove historical facts into her story. Penelope is interested in medicine but is forbidden from having any real influence because she is a woman. I liked the accurate way that Martin portrayed the practice of medicine in 1819. She does a good job making Penelope’s character strong and tenacious, but not whiny. I liked how open and honest Penelope is with James. I did think that James MacKenzie’s rise from smuggler to valet to Earl a bit far fetched. He is all through the Earl of Benton and his background is somewhat of a mystery. And I am still puzzled as to how he became a valet in the first place. However, there are a number of swoon worthy moments and James is definitely the braw Scot that Martin is skillful at creating. “He stole all her senses when he was near. Consumed them. Held them with rapt need.” Hubba, hubba. There are a number of steamy scenes. The pace is good. I hope Martin continues to write more Regency era books. I was given a copy of this book.

  • Adventurous,romantic and compelling!

    Earl of Oakhurst (Wicked Earls Club Book 19) by Madeline Martin is an adventurous and romantic Historical love story. While part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. Follow, Lady Penelope Keats and James MacKenzie, the new Earl of Oakhurst on their journey from a marriage of convenience to a marriage of passion, respect, love and HEA. Steady paced story that will keep the reader on their toes as Penelope and James navigate their way through a marriage neither wanted, to a life of peace and happiness. There is a bit of suspense and surprises, as well as, a wonderfully romantic love story. I adore Penelope and James, their relatives and Penelope 's desire to be a respected physician, which was difficult during this era. Once again, Ms. Martin has given readers, not an enjoyable and compelling read but also a compelling and heartwarming story of love, marriage and respect. Another must by Ms. Martin. Another enjoyable and satisfying read. Raring: 4 Heat rating: Sweet/clean Reviewer: AprilR
