    Earl to the Rescue

    An enjoyable story that had the heroine, Gwendeline, left destitue after the death of her parents. The hero, Alex St Audley comes to the rescue with his mother acting as her benefactors. Telling her a falsehood that her father's friends had all pooled funds to help her, he really was the one with the money. Then a series of mishaps begin to happen with a kidnapping, scandal and the truth coming out about who really was providing the funds for her. She begins to have feelings for Alex but it seems circumstances get in the way. A slow build on the romance between the two eventually ends in a happy ever after. An overall likable story by an author I follow.

    Great book

Alex St. Audley, Earl of Merryn arrives to rescue her. He is surprised that she is not a child as he was expecting but a beautiful young woman. He tells her that a group of friends have gotten together to make sure she is cared for but it is Alex who is paying. She travels to London expecting to have her own little house and servants but when she meets Alex's mother, she is persuaded to stay with her. Alex's mother is an eccentric author who insists that Gwendeline would be a great companion for her. She gets involved with someone and gets kidnapped and is told the truth about who is paying for everything. So much is happening so she leaves but comes back when Alex gets engaged. She is reintroduced to London's society. So much happens and she and Alex love each other but he's engaged and a marriage takes place. Complications arise and secrets are revealed. Will there be a HEA or will there heartbreak? I really liked this book. There was so much happening that you have to pay close attention to what's going on. I received this book from Net Galley for a honest review and no compensation otherwise.

    knight in shining armour

    Earl To The Rescue is my first experience with Jane Ashford's work. Out on shelves on November 27th, it's a good way to take your mind off the holiday craziness. Ms. Ashford's writing style is smooth, her characters likeable and there's adventure with a side of humor. I read the entire book in one sitting, during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. These days that's saying a lot. Our heroine is Gwendeline Gregory, daughter of the recently deceased Baron Gregory and his wife, Annabella. With her pale blond hair and striking aquamarine eyes, she's the spitting image of her late mother. Gwendeline has spent all her 18 years living on the family country estate while her parents mostly lived in London. The creditors are forcing the sale of all assets to cover their outstanding debts. It's hard to mourn for people you barely knew but easy to be a little angry and disappointed. Their thoughtlessness has resulted in Gwendeline being turned out on her ear. Alex St. Aduley, Earl of Merryn, is our knight in shining armour. He arrives just in time to scoop Gwendeline up and escort her to London. He's surprised both because he didn't know there was a child until recently and that she's not a baby. He thought to rescue his friends child but boy, oh boy, she is not a child. Gewndeline is dazzled by our hero. He's tall, stylishly dressed and has the broad shoulders of an athlete. His auburn hair and cool gray eyes are a stunning combination. Finally a hero with, kind of, red hair. After a misunderstanding about the nature of Alex's offer, these two, and several servants, set off for London and Gwen's new home. To start Gwendeline's first season off on the right foot, Alex takes our girl to stay with his mother. Mom's a trip, you're going to love her. She's a scattered-brained author of gothic novels. What transpires is a little like Pygmalion, there's a lot for our heroine to learn in a short period of time. This delightful romp takes us on a journey of loss, learning, friendship, love, revenge, adventure and a lot of bewilderment. I didn't cry, not once. It's not that kind of story, it sweet. I won't hesitate next time I see Ms. Ashford's name on a book, I'm going for it. As this is a romance book, there is a happy ending. We'd be disappointed if there wasn't. Receiving a free book ARC is a privilege and one I certainly enjoy. Being able to share my opinion with you is a pleasure. Both are free and without obligation. Happy reading.

    Historical Romance

    Earl To The Rescue by Jane Ashford is a wonderful historical romance. Ms. Ashford has given us a well-written book and filled it with a stellar cast of characters. Gwendeline has lost her parents and everything is being auctioned off. When Alex, Earl of Merryn, arrives to whisk her off to London she goes along with the plan. Alex and Gwendeline's story is loaded with drama, humor, action, suspense and spice. I enjoyed reading Earl To The Rescue and look forward to reading more from Jane Ashford in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
