    My Brown Eyed Earl

    I was surprised when I saw this book was 42 chapters. I sat down and waited for a long reading that didn't come. It took me about a day and a half. There are Spoilers all over this book. Anna has given us a good story line. Her people really pulled off this story. Meg and Will knew each other when they were teens. They were to marry and Meg blows her top! Spoiler. Jump ahead and Will,an Earl, has his late cousin's 6 year old twin girls. He needs help. He interviews for a governess. Meg is surprised when she meets him again. Diana and Valerie were given to Will as their mother didn't want them. Meg tries to hide when she thinks she is less than the Ton. Spoiler. Here is where I will say that this is a graphic adult book. It is not for under 18 readers. This is the first book in a new series. I will recommend this book for us older readers! I couldn't put this book down. Don't pass this book up. You will regret it later. Enjoy reading this story! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

    Historical Romance

    William Ryder, Earl of Castleton and Margaret “Meg” Lacey tap dance around one another after she takes up her position as governess of twin girls he has become guardian of. They knew one another slightly in their youth and had a few encounters in the past that both would like to forget. Meg and Will are drawn to one another and become devoted to the twins as they spend time with them and together. There is a bad guy to deal with, an ex-mistress, a mad uncle, a young woman who wants Will, Will’s interfering mother, an almost kidnapping and a lot going on through the story. Meg’s sisters will no doubt star in the next two books of this series as the three sisters are known in society as the Wayward Wallflowers. If you can discard the idea of a young woman who has made her debut in society being able to become a governess for a titled bachelor without scandal ensuing then have a rather torrid relationship with him under his roof without worrying about pregnancy or her reputation and believe that two people could fall madly in love in a matter of weeks then this might be a book you will enjoy. The writing is well done and the story kept me interested throughout. I would like to know more about Meg’s friend Charlotte and wonder if she will have her story told at some point in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Fabulous Historical Romance

    My Brown-Eyed Earl is my first book by Anna Bennett but won't be my last. Ms Bennett impressed me with her storytelling abilities and her smooth writing style. Meg and Will's story is packed with drama, humor, action and sizzle. My favorite thing about this book though is Ms Bennett's amazing, well-developed characters. The interaction and dialog were fantastic. I enjoyed reading My Brown-Eyed Earl and look forward to my next book by Anna Bennett. My Brown-Eyed Earl is book 1 of the Wayward Wallflowers Series and can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

    The epitome of loveliness

    Meg’s mind was made up: she needed a position. Her friend Charlotte Winters lent a helping hand, and that’s how drab, dull wallflower Margaret Lacey became a governess to two six year-old twin girls. What Charlotte had neglected to mention was that the twin’s guardian was none other than William Ryder, now the Earl of Castleton. The same Will that Meg had curtly refused to marry him eight years before, when her father had urged her to accept this arranged marriage. Will’s life has gone topsy-turvy when the mistress of his deceased cousin unceremoniously dropped sisters Diana and Valerie on his doorstep. Not at all recovered from a hellish hangover, Will must interview governesses, and he certainly has not forgotten Meg, and when he sees her applying for the position, Will thinks the time has come to get back at the girl who thought she was too good for him. But deep down, Will is not the vengeful type, and when he hears how Meg is trying to keep her sisters Beth and Julie fed and clothed while financially helping her kind uncle Alistair, he hires her. Will has no doubt that Meg will do well, even if she’s sure she will fail. The premise for MY BROWN-EYED EARL is one that can go two ways: it can be very unpleasant or charming; everything depends on how the characters are defined and how the author goes about it, and I’m happy to say that every single page was a delight! MY BROWN-EYED EARL is evenly paced, the story flows smoothly, and the writing is seamless. Meg and Will clash often, but in civilised fashion and the verbal sparring is extremely witty and entertaining. Will likes Meg’s quick wit and her gumption; they are very well matched, and I loved how those two strong personalities interacted. They are willing to listen to reason and admit they’re wrong, and there are no silly misunderstandings because they both speak their minds. The romance was inevitable, not because the author said so, but because Meg and Will do belong together, it’s a given just as the sun will rise tomorrow. MY BROWN-EYED EARL is so carefully plotted that, every time I thought I’d predicted the outcome of a situation, I was wrong! The romance is absolutely lovely; Meg and Will’s love grows through respect, mutual attraction, and it blossoms quietly but deeply, and the sex scenes are sensuous and elegantly written. I also liked that the twins are neither monsters nor angels; they’re perfectly normal little girls and essential to the plot. There is also a bit of suspense, which at some point had me scratching my head at the purpose of a certain situation, and I must admit that Ms. Bennett definitely knew where she was going! The (gorgeous!) cover conveys precisely the mood of the book: mostly light-hearted, playful, and delicately exquisite. I also found MY BROWN-EYED EARL a surprisingly quick read: before I knew it, the book was over and not for a second was I ever bored. I’m already looking forward to book 2 of The Wayward Wallflowers series and Beth’s story. Dare I repeat myself? MY BROWN-EYED EARL is a delightful, genuinely charming, and most lovely story! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
