MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of
Marrying the Wrong Earl
Lords and Ladies in Love #2
by Callie Hutton
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC
Historical Fiction , Romance
Publication Date: April 17, 2017
Lady Arabella Danvers is happy with her life just the way it is. She is free to be herself and take care of broken and abandoned animals. Her mother is desperate for her to marry, and has decided to take things into her own hands. There is just one little problem with her plan.
Nash, the Earl of Clarendon has determined it is time to take a wife. He has selected a woman to whom he intends to propose. However, the annoying Lady Arabella has stumbled into his life at the wrong time, and in the wrong place.
But he of all people should know if Lady Arabella is involved, plans will go awry.
This rather comical at times story dragged me in from the opening chapter. It, however made me lose interest at one point shortly after the couple was married. It just didn’t have that same appeal but did regain it’s appealing nature later on in the book.
Lady Arabella Danvers is happy with her life as it is and has no wish for a husband. Her mother has other ideas, even going to the extreme of pairing her with men old enough to be her grandfather.
Nash, the Earl of Clarendon meets her under auspicious circumstances. Arabella is on her way to deliver one of her rescued cats to a new home when the feline escapes. Nash helps her to retrieve the cat and ends up none the worse for wear in the process.
I am an animal lover and the fact that Lady Arabella was not only an animal lover but a rescuer of animals in need kept my interest.
Our hero however made me quite angry with him at times because of his insistence that she was
being selfish by keeping and tending the injuries of said animals and after their marriage not acting the part of his countess.
Will these two apparent adversaries find their way to their Happily Ever After or will they part due to their differences?
As I said, I did like this book but had problems with the storyline keeping my interest.
I gave this book 3.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5 flames.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Rumor has it the water on Clan McPherson lands is magical….
Clan McPherson has known peace amongst their neighboring clans for more than one hundred years. That peace is threatened when Fiona McPherson is made chief after the death of her husband.
Known more for her fighting skills than her beauty, Fiona refuses the multiple proposals of marriage that begin to seemingly arise from nowhere. She may be the chief of her clan, but she’s still a woman. It isn’t Fiona they want, but her land and she’s willing to fight to the death to keep it.
Rumor has it Caelen McDunnah has lost his mind…
Caelen McDunnah, the chief of Clan McDunnah, has no desire to remarry. He’s perfectly content to still mourn the loss of his first wife and babe, even if it has been sixteen years. Until he meets the beautiful and feisty Fiona McPherson.
Known to start a fight out of sheer boredom or madness — no one is ever truly sure which — Caelen suddenly finds himself in the middle of battles he has no desire to fight, but fight them he will if it means he can have Fiona McPherson as his own.
There is always a wee bit of truth in every rumor.

There can be no light without darkness, no hope without despair, no love without heartache
Some scars can’t be seen
When the handsome Frederick Mackintosh offers to marry Aggie McLaren she is certain ‘tis greed or insanity that motivates him. Besides land and a chance at a chiefdom, she believes she has nothing else to offer. She soon learns nothing could be further from the truth. Hope she thought long lost, blooms with her husband’s kindness, his honor, and fierce determination to make their marriage and their clan a success.
Sometimes, perfection is imperfect
Aggie McLaren is not Frederick Mackintosh’s image of the perfect wife. She isn’t well-read, vivacious or voluptuous. Wee, timid, and unable to speak, it is a glimpse of her smile and the chance to be chief of his own clan that propels him to offer for her hand. Frederick will do whatever he must in order to see her smile again and to help her find her voice.

Pitcher Johnny “The Monk” Scottsdale has won awards, been named an All-star and has a perfect game to his credit. Known for his legendary control both on and off the field, his pristine public image makes him the ideal person to work with youth players in a preseason minicamp. Except the camp is run by the one woman he can’t forget. . .the woman who made him a “monk.”
Alice Harrison’s three strikes include an unexpected pregnancy, a marriage of convenience and young widowhood. She once traded her dreams so Johnny could have a chance at making it to the Majors. Johnny comes back into her life just as she’s ready to resign as foundation director and pursue her own dreams of finally earning her teaching credential. Her plans may go on hold, though, depending on the reaction when she confesses she may have kept a major league secret from Johnny and her son.
With the minutes ticking by until Johnny will leave for spring training, they’ll need to let go of the past and work together in order to win the game of love.

A ballplayer and a team owner would give anything for a championship—even their hearts. . .
After inheriting majority ownership of the San Francisco Goliaths baseball team, Hunter Collins wants to prove to herself—and the rest of the league—that she’s got what it takes to build a champion. Her first move is to trade for a hot left-fielder. He’s got it all, speed, power, and a desire to win. Not to mention undeniable charm.
Marco Santiago is tired of being the new player in town. After four teams in six years, he’s facing free agency at the end of the season. He wants nothing more than a long-term contract and a World Series win. Hitting on his new owner probably isn’t the best way to get it, but love may be the most powerful challenger either of them has ever faced. . .
Warning: Strong language, consummated love scenes, and some baseball clichés.
