    Love Eliza, Hugh and dirty Willy!

    Eliza is warm and kind and is beloved by father, friends and dog Willy. She wants to marry for love but has been overlooked as she is so shy and plain. Hugh is a true gentleman; charming manners, good tempered and devoted to his family. Eliza’s father meddles to bring them together but during a gentle courtship they find they genuinely like each other’s company, indeed passionately. There are dramas are caused by others and truths need to be told before their love wins out. I loved this book - read it in one night, then reread it for the pleasure of how well it is written. There is humour, well developed secondary characters rather than caricatures and plenty of feels (as in it feels a bit hot in here!). Caroline Linden is well acquainted with London and uses very few Americanisms. Hurray for HEA for a nice shy heroine and a kind and gentle hero. And I’m a sucker for books featuring dogs!

    Loved it!

    Gambling often does not turn out well when the person is desperate to make money. Or so they say!! Hugh Deveraux, Earl of Hastings inherited a bankrupt estate and needed to earn some funds quickly and marry a heiress for money. He had loved his father and his family had always been a happy one, so when he realized there was no money for his sister's dowry or to take care of his mother, he did what he thought was best. As the best laid plans go, he was soon indebted to Edward Cross and the bargain was for him to court and wed his daughter and never let her know their arrangement! So you know how this might go, don't you? Hugh does meet Eliza Cross and starts courting her.. Eliza is such a sweet girl and had no hopes of attracting a suitor. But she starts to fall for Hugh and everything starts happening. I loved this story and it is one of my favorite tropes of the marriage for convenience and tangle it seems to always cause! Caroline Linden gives us a well written heartwarming tale that will pull you through the pages as quickly as you can read. As I turned the last page all I could do was sigh and hope that the next book in this series will be written soon! I read this through Edelweiss

    A Tangled Web

    When Hugh Deveraux inherits his father’s title, he discovers that the earldom is bankrupt. He decides to try to rebuild the family’s fortune by gambling. It seemed to be working, but one night he loses big. The winner, a wealthy businessman, blackmails him into the one thing he had tried to avoid – a marriage of convenience. Eliza, who would love to meet someone who likes her for herself and not her money, is not to know that it is not a love match (her father is trying to do what he thinks is best for her, although going about it the wrong way). Now Hugh must tell yet another lie to protect someone he cares, or soon will care, for. How will this all work out? What happens if and when those he’s trying to protect discover his lies? Eliza is a shy person with a kind heart and a loving disposition. Hugh is determined to do what he believes is right to protect those he cares about. They are strong characters and great together. The path to happily ever after is bumpy at times, but their story, watching their relationship grow, is compelling. It holds your attention and keeps you hoping everything works out for them. An Earl Like You is the second book in the Wagers of Sin series. It is a wonderful story, and I highly recommend it. I look forward to the next one. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss. My review is voluntary.

    I read it just a few hours!

    I have received an eARC in exchange for an honest review. 4.5* This story is somewhat a marriage of convenience – at least for one of the parties involved. I really liked Eliza, she was the sweetest. In the beginning, she wore pink glasses when looking at the world, but I have to admit I loved her innocence. Hugh, on the other hand, has no other choice but to see the world as it really is – and I think that’s one of the reasons why we readers can forgive him for acting the way he does. It was so romantic to see them develop their feelings for each other, and being so protective as well. Both main characters are so lovable that we just root for their happy ending from beginning to end, even with families imposing and trying to keep them apart. The book has a bit of mystery and lies in the middle, that helps the story flow and keeps the readers interested. I read it just a few hours, that’s how much it kept me interested!
