    Emotional ride for me.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Grace and Ian had to deal with undesirable situations for themselves. Coming together helped each other as well as some in their immediate circle. I loved Grace's determination and hope that things would improve. Ian's misplaced guilt kept him a bit cold, but when things became clearer for him, I cheered. This story had me laughing, cringing, and crying. I highly recommend this book. I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and it is a Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team selection. This is my unsolicited review.

    I Loved It

    Grace Ashton is desperate to stop her father from gambling everything away. There is only one person who might be able to stop him, the owner of the club he gambles in. She already secretly works to help pay the bills, but it's not enough to save them from ruin. Ian Swift the new Earl of Castleton has owned and run "The Raven" casino for years. He doesn't see why he needs to change his life just because his brother died. This is an amusing and at times emotional story. The characters are fun and not above using guilt to get their own way. Family, and what we will do for them is the mainstay of the story. Our intelligent heroine will try anything to save her family from ruin. Our stubborn hero is determined to have his cake and eat it. I thoroughly enjoyable read.

    A Great Story!!

    This fast paced adventure held me spellbound.. From the very beginning I was intrigued that a proper young lady was masked and entering a gambling hell, the Raven Club to bargain with the owner over her father's gambling debts. What you say? It is the old story of gambling away all their funds but with a definite twist as Grace Ashton, seemingly an innocent is determined. What she finds is Ian Swift, the recently titled Earl of Carleton, not giving an inch. Indeed he is amazed at her audacity but will not take her jewelry as payment. Grace really begs him to not let her father in the club but as Ian pointed out he would just go elsewhere. Ian was suffering his own problems with his mother pushing him to take his place in polite society so that his sisters could have their come out. He has been doing what he wanted for years and was really not fit to be seen. So he develops a plan to have Grace get him into shape to be the proper gentleman he needs to be to help his sisters. Can the plan work? Tina Gabrielle has an amazing writing style that actually kept me up into the night until I turned the last page. I truly could not put it down once I started. The characters came to life and I felt for Ian and Grace and in the end they needed to save each other. One of my favorite trope. This was the first book by the author I have read but I have to say, I cannot wait to read more!!

    Enjoyable Read

    I enjoyed the first part of this book. I would read more by this author, as I like her style of writing. Grace had just the right amount of adventure in her. Ian was his own man. However, I felt like their relationship had gaps without progress, where there were unexplained leaps (how they were interested in each other and how they were upset with each other).

    Flawed by enjoyable

    The second novel I have read from Tina Gabrielle, it is clear she is a talented writer, particularly when it comes to historical romance. While the premise to How To Tempt an Earl is not original by far, Gabrielle’s take was highly enjoyable. The story is well developed, though has some slight inconsistencies. Pair with the author's easy style, it flows smoothly and quickly. The main characters are tangible and likable despite having flaws, and the heroine is intelligent and resourceful. The story is amusing with the right amount of emotion. While the novel is not without its flaws, it is an enjoyable historical romance.
