    A fun read

    I received a complimentary copy of this book for review. Recipe for Romance: Ingredients: 1 cup naïve, headstrong female trying to convince her “true love” to view her as a desirable woman, not just a child-hood friend Add 1 hot-tempered, hot-blooded aristocrat posing as a servant trying to uncover the secrets surrounding his missing sister Throw in one dash of the pompous fop our heroine wants to wed (aka, “true love”) A pinch of the other aristocrat with secrets of his own to hide but a wonderful reputation as a rake (aka, Cassie’s “teacher” in seduction) And just a dash of “the other woman”, along with a dash of the Earl’s missing sister… Mix well, and you get “Unmasking the Earl” by Elizabeth Keysian! From Cassie’s throw of her wilted flowers, to her hair-brained idea to be taught lessons in seduction, this was fun. Ned is such a hero (sigh) and Cassie is just the right amount of stubborn. This story has humor, romance, passion, and intrigue. I will not divulge more in this review; no spoiler alerts coming from this end…but I truly encourage you to spend your time with these characters as they embark on their many adventures, including Cassie and Ned finding true love. It isn’t smooth sailing by any means, but it is worth each bump and turn in the roller-coaster ride that it is!

    This book was quite the adventure!

    This book was quite the adventure! I really enjoyed getting lost in this story! (Not lost as in I couldn't follow along, but lost as in I read for three hours before I realized how long I had been reading for!) While I'm not that well-versed in historical romances, I found this one easy enough to understand and really liked all of the "scandalous" things that took place. Aside from Ned, what I liked most about this book was that I didn't have to wait until the end for the mysteries and conflicts to be resolved. Yes, one conflict held out until the last page, but I felt Elizabeth did a wonderful job of "tugging me along" by resolving one mystery, then hyping up the next one, then resolving that one, etc. I seriously couldn't put this down! I wasn't so sure about Cassie at first, but as the story went on, I really liked how, in spite of the aforementioned scandalous behavior, she didn't take any guff from anyone. I would even call her downright sassy at some points, which I got a kick out of. I really liked Ned. I especially liked his relentlessly protective streak when it came to Cassie. The final scene was absolutely adorable! This was my first Elizabeth book, but I very much like her characters and writing style and I can't wait to catch up with Ned and Cassie in subsequent books and maybe read a certain Captain's story next? ;) (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

    A Crazy Adventure

    Miss Cassandra Blythe is most distressed that man who she has loved since she was a child, only looks at her as a sister. She must do something to make him notice her. Lord Edmund Talbot, the Earl of Stranraer is searching for his sister who vanished several months before. The only clue he has is the name of a well known libertine. This is a wonderful, crazy adventure. Our mischievous heroine risks all for love, and our bullheaded hero has a problem controlling his temper. Lots of fun and a little mystery to solve. The final scene in particular was vastly entertaining. I loved ever page.

    Loved it!

    'Unmasking the Earl' by Elizabeth Keysian is book Two in the "Wayward in Wessex" series. This is the story of Lord Edmund Talbot, the Earl of Stranraer 'Ned" and Miss Cassandra Blythe 'Cassie". I have read the other book but feel this is easily a standalone book. Cassie thinks she is in love with Julian Carnforth. Julian just thinks of her as a little sister. So Cassie wants to learn to seduce him. When Cassie sees Julian going off with a lady named Lucy at a party she feels she needs to save him from this women. Captain Francis Wycherley is who brought Lucy to the party and who has a relationship with her. So Cassie and the Captain go off to confront the two wayward couple. Ned is pretending to be a servant to be in the Captain's house hold to look for clues about what happened to his sister. Ned's sister went missing after a fire happened Ned feels that the Captain has something to do with his missing sister. Ned intervenes when Cassie tries to get the Captain to help her learning how to seduce Julian. But they both find that they can't help fighting their feelings. I enjoyed this story and their banter. Ned was frustrating a few times but overall really loved this book! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    Unmasking literary delight!

    Cassie has her hands full: She thinks she is in love with man #1 (Julian), thinks man #2 (the Captain) can teach her how to seduce man #1 (Julian), and finds herself fighting the chemistry with man #3 (Ned), who is the presumed servant of man #2 (the Captain). Ned (man #3) is working undercover as a servant in the household of the Captain (man #2), because he feels like he may have had something to do with the disappearance of his beloved sister. Now: Enter Cassie and her unconventional notions, and let the fireworks begin! This book was a combination of all the best things in a storyline: romance, suspense, mystery, unexpected chemistry, humorous banter, quirky characters and sparks galore all rolled into a wonderfully-written tale with a distinctively-historical flavor and Regency feel combined. Even though this is the second novel in the Wayward in Wessex series, it can easily be enjoyed as a stand alone. I am eagerly looking forward to the next offering from the uber-talented Keysian! *I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley & Entangled Publishing, LLC in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.
