    At times slow, confusing but enjoyable

    I thought this was a good read maybe a little too long and at times confusing but worth my time. Once you get in to the read it was enjoyable I loved how the characters build up as they developed. I did think a few things were out of character but it did make the story more interesting. I found this to be a complex but captivating read. Both characters are very strong willed neither giving in nor much away. Their history of Colin and Emily is very interesting. Colin is a wonderful character he is strong, protective but giving. Emily at first confused me with all her names. It took a while to really understand what was going on. This was a tense completed read but a very enjoyable one. The author does a good job keeping the mystery interesting.

    Secret Lives

    Colin Gray, the new Earl of Egremoor has been part of a secret club for years. They have been helping find missing people. Sometimes those people didn't want to be found. There is a person writing pamphlets ridiculing the club and his alter ego in particular. With the death of his father, he needs to finish the club and make a proposal. Lady Emily Vale is the eldest of happy family of sisters, one of whom is missing. She has been more or less betrothed since birth to a man who was her best friend as a child but who has avoided her for years. This is a lovely story where both our protagonists have a very firm opinion about life, but still have very much to learn about truth. They have both lived with secret personalities doing what they thought was right. Our hero is not quite the typical Lord he is believed to be. Our heroine has put herself so far outside the normal sphere of her rank in life so that she can try to affect the politics of the time. They set off separately on a mission that turns into a joint one of discovery and lots of danger. An intriguing and exciting historical romance with more than the usual share of adventure. This is part of a series that can each be read as a stand alone. I think I know the protagonists of the next book and cant wait to read it. A thoroughly enjoyable story I loved it.

    An extraordinary romance

    Lady Justice, a pamphleteer whose mission is to defend the oppressed, and Peregrine, Colin Gray, the Earl of Egremoor and member of the now defunct Falcon Club, have been at odds for years in the press. The Falcon Club’s mission was to retrieve missing persons, but now Lady Justice is in a pickle, after colourfully insulting her foe for years, she needs Peregrine’s help. Her sister has vanished, but she cannot reveal her name, or else he will know Lady Justice’s identity. As an acquaintance of Lady Justice’s is also missing, that’s the excuse Lady Justice gives Peregrine, and so they end up looking for a missing woman in Scotland, and out of Peregrine and Lady Justice, only one of them knows the true identity of the other… The public exchange of letters between Lady Justice and Peregrine is the stuff legends are made of: every word of these letters is perfection itself, and readers of Ms. Ashe’s Falcon Club series have been waiting for this story for ages, while THE EARL can also easily be savoured as a standalone book. The correspondence is just as brilliant in THE EARL, which concludes the verbal sparring of these two characters, in spectacular fashion. I opted not to divulge the identity of Lady Justice, which makes this review a tad more complicated to write, but you will not get any spoilers from me! As is customary, Katharine Ashe goes to great lengths to ensure that historical accuracy prevails, which make Lady Justice’s cries against injustice still more glaring. Ms. Ashe’s superlative prose is incandescent and luminous as she captures the gorgeous Scottish countryside in all its glory. THE EARL has an exceedingly complex plot, with several characters and many layers, all leading to an extraordinary romance of unfathomable depth. There are also several small mysteries, in addition to the missing women, and it is while attempting to solve them that Peregrine and Lady Justice come to acknowledge their respective weaknesses, which both had somewhat erroneously perceived as strengths. There is a race to safety that is so vividly described that I think I held my breath nearly throughout the whole scene, and there are some revelations that were, to put it mildly, not at all what I expected. THE EARL is a story about being true to who you are, but also having a good look at yourself, and that is what our two lovers discover when they stop bickering. The sex scenes left me nearly speechless: they are so exquisite, so filled with fiery ardour and total abandon, that will make your heart flutter and your insides melt. But the romance, O the romance! I am still not sure if the words to express the wonder of Peregrine and Lady Justice’s romance exist: magnificent, sublime, exquisite, glorious, do not even begin to do justice to the love story. The emotions are articulated with such clarity, that I feel that Ms. Ashe has found the exact way to express true love for the first time in writing. And be sure to read A Note on Women’s Rights at the end, they are utterly fascinating. Lady Justice and Peregrine got the book they so richly deserved, which seemed to be asking too much from the author, and Katharine Ashe more than rises to the occasion with the outstanding story of THE EARL. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Falcon Club Finale

    4.5 Stars! The Falcon club has come to an end, but in the best way possible. Fearless leader, Colin Gray, is now an Earl and must take on all the responsibilities. One final loose end is his long-standing feud with the one known as Lady Justice. Lady Emily Vale has encompassed her secret identity of Lady Justice and is now zeroed in on the man she’s despised for decades. Scotland becomes the scene of the final battle between the warriors, but not all goes as planned. Where there is hatred, there is passion. This passion leads Emily and Colin somewhere they never expected to be. With the fate of several women at stake, the two find themselves in one of the most difficult situations of their lives. As with the previous Falcon Club members, Colin meets his fate as love, lust, and passion drive him to lengths he never imagined. Emily shows herself as she truly is, stubborn, courageous, and full of a fire too many women lack. Ashe delivered a brilliant, raw finale wrought with emotion. The cherry on top of the Falcon Club cake is the truce between these foes and the overwhelming desires that take hold once they put their differences aside. While The Falcon Club is at an end, Ashe is nowhere near finished. This is only the second book in the Duke’s Devil Series and I for one cannot wait to devour another delicious masterpiece from Katharine Ashe. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
