    original and entertaining

    * I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I found this story to be very charming and the plot intriguing, but I had difficulty really getting into it until about halfway through. However, I just have to jump on my soapbox for a second to say that some things were sorely lacking in accuracy and it drove me nuts while I was reading. For example, nearly all of the references involving horses were wrong. I realize that most people don't have horse experience the way I do, but reading about horses "braying" was just cringe-worthy. There also wasn't quite enough steam for me, but that's just a personal preference. That said, I enjoyed this story and found it refreshing to read a historical set in Italy. Once I got into the adventure and mystery of the story, I couldn't put it down until I finished. Overall, I would recommend this book as an enjoyable and entertaining read.

    Great Fun

    Brianna Penderley is a very adventurous young woman for a Victorian miss. She loves antiques and has persuaded her Aunt and two cousins to come to Italy in search of treasure and just maybe information on her mother's side of the family. She really didn't mean to get in trouble, again. Daniel Walcott, the Earl of Thornton works secretly for the War Office. His boss and family friend, has asked him to go and , once more rescue his niece from trouble. The woman has been a pain in the neck since she was a child. Always getting into scrapes. There is much more danger in Italy than anyone could have guessed, especially for someone with Brianna's unknown family connections. The people there seem to think she is important, and what she is looking for is dangerous. This is a lovely fat book that will give you hours of excitement. It's packed full of adventure and romance. Our intrepid heroine drags as much out of life as possible. Our hero just wants a quiet, peaceful life. Can they ever hope to find common ground ?. I loved it.

    Romance with adventure

    Would you like to go on a treasure hunt? Join our heroine Brianna Penderly on a jaunt from England to lovely and dangerous Italy in search of the lost treasure of King Aleric. A funny incident sends our hero, Daniel Wolcott, Earl of Thornton, to save the day and Bree. Daniel's exasperated to be sent, once again, by Bree's Uncle to clean up her mess. Along the way we find too many suitors, kidnapping, lots of water, worried family, new family, intrigue, vengeance, justice, glorious treasure and love. Daniel and Bree are completely wrong for each other. She's headstrong and reckless. He's stuffy and abhors emotions as they only lead to chaos. Opposites sometimes attract, will our couple be able to resist or will they be helpless when faced with true love? Don't miss the very romantic happily ever after. I've not read this one before. I confess that I'd never heard of Madison Michaels until I was offered the opportunity to receive an arc of The Elusive Earl. I love a chance to check out a new author and to share my opinion of a book. I hope that my review will entice you to try out Ms. Michael's work. You won't be disappointed. I now have to catch up on her earlier work, I like her style.
