  • I loved Gabriel and Arabella's story!

    A chance meeting, mutual friends, and a well-placed lightning bolt all conspired to guide Gabriel and Arabella to a love for the ages! I absolutely adored this sweet and tender love story. Gabriel is a resolute rake, a man who has convinced himself that he's not worthy of anything more than sharing pleasurable moments with all manner of women. Arabella considers herself too plain to ever entice a man, which works fine because she'd rather devote herself to caring for the unfortunate sick and poor orphans, following in her physician grandfather's footsteps as much as a woman can be allowed to. When Gabriel needs his dislocated shoulder fixed, her expert care leads to a demonstration of his expert skills and once their exchange is witnessed by her disapproving aunt, a marriage is inevitable. Theirs is not an easy marriage as Arabella seeks to protect her heart while Gabriel only knows one way to express his feelings. I loved the way the story built up their friendship even while they were at an impasse over their sleeping arrangements, and I nearly cried at the long-awaited reunion with the one person who held the key to saving Gabriel's estate and title. These characters were carefully nuanced and laced with plenty of humor and steam. I enjoyed the inclusion of their circle of friends and how they supported each other throughout all the trials. Despite its long length, this book was an easy read that I couldn't put down. There was just enough action to keep me glued to the page, yet the story never lost its focus on the emotional foundation of the main characters. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves historical romance. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Perfectly Wonderful!

    A story full of everything I love about historical romance! An expelled student of Mrs. Rathbone's Academy for Young Ladies of Good Character (yes, I love it!), Miss Arabella Jardine and her three friends had come up with a plan for their debut and a list of men. Unfortunately she was being forced to go on a tour of the continent with her Aunt Flora and Cousin Lilias. But Arabella had secret plans of her own. She wanted to get into the medical field and had her eye on a gentleman she had met through her grandfather. Gabriel Holmes-Fitzgerald, the Earl of Langdale, better known as the Errant Earl due to his rakish ways, found out his cousin TImothy was going to try to snatch his title and lands away by proving his parent's marriage was not legitimate. They were married in Scotland and it seemed there was no record to be found. So he set out to find the mother who had left him all those years ago and it seemed she had been in Switzerland last. Well what do you think happens next? The two meet in a dungeon (oh yes) in a castle in Switzerland and.... Well let's just say the journey begins! An intellectual with no self confidence and a handsome rake with his own demons make this the perfect tale and I loved every second! Amy Rose Bennett's writing is magical as she weaves an unexpected, but enthralling storyline with Gabriel and Arabella, both flawed but perfect for each other. A little adventure, humor, angst and of course and unexpected romance that flares to life and ensnares the heart. Can I just sigh? Perfect.

  • How the Errant Earl fell in love

    I enjoyed the overall storyline of the book. Two strangers meet, get married after one day of knowing each other and spent the rest of the time getting familiar with each other. The heroine Arabella had a difficult time growing up. She was rescued by her grandfather who saw Arabella take an interest in his job as a physician. He taught her many things until he passed away. She then had to live with her cruel aunt, her mother's sister. The aunt was caustic, mean and had no respect for Arabella and treated her with disgust and shame. I had a hard time with Arabella's character as she believed she was nobody and nothing of worth. But that was the result of her aunt’s influence. Yet she still had a bit of rebellion in her. When she had to marry Gabriel after being found in a compromising kiss, her aunt threatened her and even slapped her across the face to make sure she would marry and not be a disgrace to the family. I really disliked Arabella's aunt. Gabriel was completely honest with Arabella and said some things that made her feel uncomfortable. She thought she could live with it but in the end she could not. Their living together was stressed. The problem I had with Arabella is that every time Gabriel would make a positive declaration, she refused to believe him because of her lack of self-worth. It was annoying at times because this continued through most of the book. The secondary storyline was very good. I enjoyed it. When I finished reading, I felt disappointed there was no epilogue. I wanted to know if Arabella was increasing and Gabriel's relationship with his mother if it was flourishing. That is why I gave this a four-star rating instead of a five. I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review.
