Lovely – Romantic – Exciting!

When Hunter Bentley, the Earl of Addison, returns from Scotland, it is to find that the love of his life has married another. On a mission of mercy to see his beloved father through his final days in the country he loved, Hunter is unaware that the woman he was set to marry, feeling neglected by his absence, has accepted a proposal of marriage from the Duke of Galcross. Still, Lady Felicity Morgan was always a little spoiled and a little ambitious.

Weeks later, Emmeline Fitzgerald suffers the worst humiliation of her life. Just months after the death of her beloved father, the man she is set to marry publicly announces his engagement to another. Feeling all eyes on her, Emmeline almost turns to run, but her dignity is saved by none other than the Earl of Addison. Within days the Earl, a man she barely knows, makes her a most unusual proposal; a marriage of convenience. He is looking for a wife so that he might produce an heir to his title and estate. She needs a husband of means to save her, her mother, and sister from financial ruin when her second cousin, Kent Fitzgerald, finally inherits her father’s estate some months after his passing.

Finding they have more in common than they could have imagined, can Hunter and Emmeline find the path to true love? Or will the constant interference from Felicity and Kent Fitzgerald drive a wedge between them?

“A Bride for the Betrayed Earl” is a historical romance novel of approximately 70,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Publisher’s Description:

Introducing the “A Governess for the Brooding Duke” Novel – Discover NOW The New Regency Romance Book by Bridget Barton!

Lovely – Romantic – Exciting!

When Georgette Darrington’s father dies suddenly and with serious debts, she imagines things cannot get any worse. But when her attorney tells her that the family home must be sold to pay the debts, leaving her penniless and without a home, her only choice is to become a governess.

In no time at all, Georgette finds herself in the grand mansion of the Duke of Draycott, teaching his delightful, orphaned nieces. But, the more time Georgette spends with the little girls, the more she realizes they are missing their home and life in Wales, not to mention their own language. Georgette must find a way to convince the Duke to take an interest in the girls’ lives, and she must also find a way to keep their native language alive despite his determined instructions to the contrary.

As the tragic tale of the Duke’s sister and her forbidden love unfolds, Georgette must struggle with the deprivations of her lowered status, not to mention the spiteful plots and schemes of a jealous housekeeper and nurse. As her loneliness threatens to overwhelm her, Georgette must find a way put the splintered family back together, even as she battles her own feelings of love for the handsome, taciturn Duke.

I reviewed this book shortly after it’s release May 15th, 2017. This is book #1 of this series and book #2 released June 21st. Book #3 just released July 30th and I will leave a review shortly for it.

My Thoughts:

I have recently read other books by this author and was impressed with her writing in most of them. This one was to date the best written in my opinion.

 I much prefer this full novel rather than the others I have read which were written in installments.
This book has a decidedly sad storyline.
Our heroine’s father has died leaving his estate in debt.
Her home must be sold to cover the debts, leaving her penniless so she must find employment in order to survive. She finds herself governess to a pair of twin girls who are the nieces and wards of a Duke.
Our hero is constantly reminded of his deceased sister by the little girls, so he refuses to let their native tongue to be spoken in his home.
Georgette goes against his wishes because she feels the children need the familiarity of their native Wales to smooth their transition to a life without their parents.
How will this pair of adversaries who are very attracted to each other find their way to their own happily ever after?
I gave this book 4.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames.
My thanks goes to the author for this complimentary copy of this book.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Tom Maddox would never marry. He’s the second son, the spare, and he prides himself on living his life without the confines of society.

Baroness Segrave needs a husband for society’s sake but she’d prefer he have no opinion at all. Which is why the Earl of Loudoun seems the ideal choice. With no fortune and a drinking habit, he should allow her to keep running her estate while living off the allowance she’d give him. But Loudoun proves to be both drunk and foolish. Suddenly a husband who is strong, capable, and appreciative of her gifts gains merit in her eyes. A man like Tom Maddox.

But how can she convince Tom that he should consider marriage and give up his carefree bachelorhood? Because no matter what anyone else believes, she’d rather the love of a gentleman than a lord.
