    A surprising topic

    In this unusual Regency romance, Lady Patience is on a one-woman mission to warn pugilists about the risks they take in participating in the sport. Apart from the antagonism she arouses in the organisers of the fights, she is an embarrassment to her family and friends as well. It is generally thought that she should put her time and energies into finding a husband instead of confronting the fighters. When he Earl of St Seville escapes from her home after her father brought him home as he had been accosted in the streets, Patience sets out to find him and when she realises that he is hell-bent on participating in fights to solve his family monetary problems, Patience offers to help train him. The story revolves around training a pugilist and preparing him for a fight, which might just not be fair. The story is clean and well written with some suspense, however I was surprised at the subject matter of this book and the manner in which Patience set out her training program. Despite the ridicule that Patience has earned at the expense of trying to get her message across, Sin is protective of her and sees in her a woman who cares. I enjoyed the book and the romance that bloomed between Sin and Patience despite it being so different. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Loved the Story and Ending!

    I really enjoyed reading about Sin and Patience. Her greater desire to protect others from suffering what her mother did versus her own reputation speaks much about her personality! Sin reminded me of a cuddly bear of a man. Gentle and patient while falling in love with Patience and getting to know her. You could tell the love he felt for his own family and people by the actions he forced himself to take to protect and care for them all. Meeting Patience's brothers Valor and Merit added to the fun and games! Loved the story and ending! Thank you for the advance copy so I could share my thoughts on the book!

    Lots Of Fun

    Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville has left his bucolic life on his island home to try an earn the money he and his people need. It wasn't until his father's death that he realized how bad the finances were. He can only think of one way to earn the necessary cash. Lady Patience Lane has a reputation for being an interfering bluestocking. She has been putting a lot of pressure on everyone she can, in an attempt to stop the bare knuckle fighting that is so popular. Patience and her family know just how damaging it can be. This is a very different historical romance, covering an unusual subject. Also the behaviour of our characters is almost completely opposite to what we expect. Lots of fun. I loved it.

    A Fighting Chance at Love

    Christina McKnight is able to engage the reader from the beginning of this story and not let go until the last page. She captures the essence of the time period and introduces a new subject not often expanded upon in historical romances. This is a story involving boxing and the uglier side of what can happen to the fighters, which we all know today, but not talked about as much then. Lady Patience Lane, daughter of legendary female boxer and trainer Ivory Bess, is on a mission. Her mother had sustained substantial injuries from the sport and ultimately passed away due to severe injuries. Patience is trying to educate others on the dangers of boxing so this does not happen to them. But as fate would have it, in steps Sinclair Chambers, Earl of St. Seville who has come to London to try to earn money by boxing. He is desperate to generate funds fast for his estates and looks for the best trainer to help him. Of course that is Patience, but he has to convince her first to work with him. Can Patience help him yet follow her missive to keep Sin safe while training? As they spend time together, they are drawn more and more toward each other. But as secrets are revealed and trust is in question, the price might be too high to keep the two together. I truly enjoyed this story and encourage anyone to read. It will keep you captivated with the courage, trust and love of these two characters.

    Loved it

    Earl of St Seville by Christina McKnight is book 11 in the "Wicked Earl's Club" series. This is the story of Lady Patience Lane and Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville. I have been jumping in and out of this series so for me this was easily a standalone book. Patience lost her mother about 5 years ago and has had a hard time since dealing with the death. Patience mother was a famous prize fighter and now Patience tries to discourage and educate others on the out come of fighting. Patience father helps Sin out when he is hurt and bring him home and this is were Sin meets Patience they end up meeting again at a ball where Sin stands up and defends her to someone being mean to her. When Patience goes to seek him out to thank him she find him fighting and she knows enough from her mom that she fears he will be hurt. Patience and Sin end up working together but this leads them to waiting more from each other. But the Patience learns that Sin wasn't going to stick to their agreement...can he win her back? Really great read!
