    great read

    Lady Constance Stonewell likes to match couples. She thought Earl Apthorp was a bore. So she thinks he wants to marry a certain girl and feels he is not the one for her. So she writes a poem about the Earl and someone puts it in the paper. His reputation is ruined. He also has a bill in parliament that he has sunk a lot of money into. He would also end up destitute. She does not even check her gossip to see if it is right. She has done something like it to his now wife. She almost ruined her. Julian Haywood, the Earl of Apthorp, is devastated that she did this to him. He also worries about his mother and sister, they would have to give up the few things they have left to enjoy. I found, at times, humor also it would be awful if he felt he could never trust her. He had loved her for eight years. I really liked the way that her brother handled the problems she bought on with her impulsiveness. The characters seemed well rounded to me and they were so very lifelike. There were a lot of complications but the author handled them well. Her writing was smooth, easy to read, and kept the interest alive. It was hard to put down and I read it in one sitting. I do recommend this book. It has something for most people. I received this ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed it.

    Wonderful

    Beautifully written, with stunning emotional impact that will leave you breathless. I loved Julian and Constance (almost as much as Poppy and Archer, almost...) A word of warning, features high sexual content and touches on abuse.

    A Unexpected Adventure

    How can a Lady ruin an Earl? Well by printing writing a poem about said Earl that was not complimentary and somehow it gets in the paper for all the Ton to see. So how to repair it? Lady Constance is a matchmaker and thinks that Julian, Earl Apthorp is a very boring man (or so it seems!) and after her missive, his reputation is ruined. She is such a fun, outgoing person who really has a good heart and tries her best to fix the mess she made! So she suggests a fake engagement to help his reputation and save his bill in parliament. But the funny thing is Julian has been in love with Constance for many years. What? There is a lot of back and forth between these two with a lot of angst and sometimes humor. Secrets come out about Julian's source of earnings that is totally unexpected! Can the two come together or will they pull apart? With well written characters that were very likable, rounded out his tale and kept my attention until the end. Although part of a series, this can be read as a standalone But you really want to read the first book!

    Loved it

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Earl I Ruined is Scarlett Peckham’s second book. I would recommend reading the Duke I Tempted first as it is the story of heroine’s brother. Lady Constance Stonewell awakes one morning to discover that a risqué poem she wrote meant to be shared privately has been published in a scandal sheet and that Julian Haywood, Earl of Apthorp subject of the poem is facing ruin because of that. Constance, sure that she can solve everything proposes to Julian telling him that marriage to her will help to restore his reputation. Julian, secretly in love with Charlotte for 8 years but afraid to approach her until he could support a wife is devastated because his life is in ruins and Charlotte has blithely destroyed it and at this point in the story appears not to understand that her behaviour was unacceptable and it can’t all be waved away because she wishes it so. Charlotte reminds me of a swan a gorgeous creature floating gracefully down the river all the while paddling madly beneath the water. As we come to know her in the story we realize that she does feel things deeply and that her larger than life persona was created to protect her from being hurt again. I loved this story. I liked that the author let us see the people beneath the surfaces they presented to the outside world and she didn’t make it easy for them making their HEA hard won and well deserved. Quite steamy. Publishing Date December 11, 2018. #NetGalley #TheEarlIRuined #inscribedigital @scarlettpeckham

    Magnificent Georgian Period Romance

    The Duke I Tempted was the first book I read by Scarlett Peckham, and I absolutely loved it. I was extremely excited when I saw this, the second book in The Secrets of Charlotte Street series. I was a bit nervous....could this book be anywhere near as wonderful as the first, or was that one a fluke? Nope, not a fluke! This book kept me enthralled from start to finish. Ms. Peckham is now officially one of my favorite authors. I'm not going to explain the plot; you can read the synopsis yourself. I will share the "feels" with you. This story was a fabulous mix of wit, heartbreak, embarrassment, sexual delights, love and yearning. Lots of yearning. It started out at a slow simmer and ended up in a burst of flame. Julian and Constance were complicated, marvelous leads. They were not as they appeared on the surface. They made me laugh, snicker, tear up and outright cry. I was swept into their Georgian period romance and didn't want to leave their world when the story ended. Am I gushing? I can't help it. It touched me that much. I want much more from this author. I received an ARC of this book courtesy of NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.
