    an unwilling earl

    Jacob Baker is a solictor and has just been informed that he is the new Earl of Ashland. He is a quiet man, honest and a widower. Charlotte Morris is the niece of Lord Chadley, who is a Marquess. Her grandfather and her mother had a fight about how the man she loved was not good enough but she went to him and gave up the grandure of the aristrocratic life. She ended up at her aunt's house when her dad died five years ago. That was one wicked lady. We met Jacob when Lord Armbruster and he were looking at the papers in their club. There had been four murders and no clues. This was a very nice mystery, with some interesting twists to it. The characters were fun, witty and nice people. You could almost enjoy having them for neighbors. The story held my interest throughout the day while I read it in one sitting. Good tale, it moved smoothly and was easy to read.

    Loved It

    This is the second book I have read by this author and I can truly say I cannot wait to read more! Sharon Cullen has combined all the elements of a great historical romance to make my heart pound and turn the pages as fast as I could! Mystery, suspense, second chances, great characters and two people who meet by chance (or what it fate?) that were meant for each other. Jacob Baker, solicitor has unexpectedly inherited an earldom. How wonderful you say? Not really because he enjoyed his work and would have to give it up. He works for barristers doing several jobs of helping to find people, interviewing witnesses and research which he finds satisfying. But when he is approached to help find a Baronness's missing niece Charlotte, he initially declines. He is intrigued however by a drawing he was given of her and unsettled by her aunts words. Charlotte has been on the streets hiding until she can make her way to America. Her life had been terrible with her aunt and she had begun to form a suspicion of happenings in London. When he does find her, they are drawn to each other and he really wants to help her. But events take off and there are forces that may pull them apart or cost their lives. Don't miss this first book in a new series that I cannot wait to read more!!

    Sexy book

    Jacob, the new Earl of Ashland wasn't the raised to be an Earl. He was happy being a solicitor working with barristers, interviewing witnesses and tracking people down. When he saves a young boy from being killed under a carriage, he thinks he has done a good deed, not knowing that this encounter will become an important part of his life. When Lady Morris comes to him asking him to find her niece Charlotte, he turns her down. She leaves a drawing of Charlotte with Jacob. Lady Norris is a horrible woman who lives with her son. Mistreating Charlotte is one of the things that Lady Morris liked most. Meanwhile there are women being murdered in London. The heads cut off and the rest thrown in the river. When Jacob finds Charlotte, he realizes why she looks familiar. He must help save her from being returned to Lady Morris and her son, Lord Morris. Will Charlotte be returned to her aunt? Can Jacob love again? This is a great book. Romance, mystery and a serial killer all in one. I really loved it..I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for a honest review.

    Enjoyable Tale

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. An Unwilling Earl by Sharon Cullen is a nice mix of marriage of convenience and murder mystery. Jacob Baker a widowed solicitor is reluctantly forced to assume the title Earl of Ashland. Eager to escape the marriage mart he offers marriage in name only to Charlotte Morris a runaway orphan that he met when he rescued her from a horse on the street. Jacob and his friend Armbruster are armchair detectives and the mystery intriguing them at the moment is that young women are being murdered and turning up in the Thames missing their head and hands. A story that will keep you eagerly turning the pages to solve the mystery and to learn if Jacob can ever move on from mourning his first wife create a true marriage with Charlotte.

    Lovely Read - Delightful Characters

    I enjoy this author’s writing style. I liked both of the main characters and the mystery was an excellent one that was well-plotted and well-delivered. I absolutely loved that the villains got their just deserts in the end. So often, that doesn’t happen. Jacob Baker is a solicitor who works for barristers doing research, interviewing witnesses, and tracking people down when necessary. He is also a widower who deeply and truly loved his wife, Cora, who died of childbed fever along with their newborn son. He’s been in mourning for five years now. He has also just learned that he has inherited a title, Earl of Ashland, and he is not happy with that intrusion into his life. Jacob is in a bit of a snit because of the title and all of his new responsibilities and the fact he’ll have to give up his law practice when he has a visitor, Baroness Morris, who wants him to find her missing niece – Charlotte. Jacob refuses, but he’s intrigued by the drawing of the young woman and what her aunt had to say about her. Charlotte Morris is the granddaughter of a marquess who disowned Charlotte’s mother when she ran away and married an untitled man of whom he didn’t approve. Charlotte is now an orphan – her mother died in childbirth and her father died five years ago. Charlotte has been living with an aunt and cousin since then. Charlotte’s aunt has spent those five years mistreating and abusing Charlotte. Now that some other events have happened, Charlotte has run away and is living in the rookeries because if she went anywhere else, her aunt would find her. Ultimately, she plans to go to America to teach the husband-hunting heiresses how to properly behave in English society. The mystery could be gruesome if it were spelled out in detail. That wouldn’t bother me, but it might bother some readers. Luckily for all of us, it isn’t detailed. There is a monster loose in London and he (or she) is stabbing women and cutting their heads off. The bodies are found, but the heads are not. Charlotte thinks she knows something that will lead to the identity of the murderer, but she is afraid of what she knows and just wants to escape to America. I thought the mystery was more believable than the romance, but I really enjoyed them both. I did come to believe that Jacob loved Charlotte and it was nice to see them get their HEA. Why didn’t I give it a full five stars? Well, for a couple of reasons. First, there was just way, way, way too much Cora (Jacob’s first wife) in the story. There was even a place or two where he thought of her either during or just after he and Charlotte had been intimate. All of that ‘Cora’ made it much harder to believe that Jacob loved Charlotte. Second, I think the author must have learned the term Dowager, but not its proper use. Dowager is used as a ‘title’ for every titled female in the story who has lost her husband. That is NOT the correct usage and every time I saw it used as it was, it would completely pull me out of the story. I believe the term is in the book eight or ten times and not one of them is used correctly. Third, there were story inconsistencies such as the villain murdering someone with his dinner knife, then later it was said that they were murdered with the same weapon as the other victims. Maybe I have an uncorrected eARC and all of this will be corrected in the published version of the book. Those things I mentioned above aside, I would recommend this book and will be looking forward to the next one. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
