When a bluestocking spinster sets her mind to something…
Lady Patience Lane, daughter of the Earl of Desmond and legendary boxer Ivory Bess, grew up learning to fight, not how to mind her manners. She always expected she’d become a trainer like her mother, until injuries from the ring led to her mother’s untimely death. Now, she’s determined to save other families from the same heartache, by teaching others about the dangers of boxing. Nothing could bring her back to the world she left—until she meets a mysterious stranger who sets her pulse racing.
And a dark, dangerous lord interferes…
Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville and known as “Sin” to his cohorts, inherited an insolvent estate. He has to make money, and fast, or his tenants will starve. The prize purses from the bareknuckle mills will go a long way to solving his problems, if he can win them. To be a success in the ring, he needs the best trainer, and Patience Lane is the best there is—all he has to do is convince her that he’ll only fight once.
They just might find their happily ever after in each other’s arms.
The more time Sin and Patience spend together, the closer they become. Soon, Sin’s thoughts are less about winning in the ring, and more about winning Patience’s heart. But can a relationship born out of wicked deception stand the test of time?
This is the third book I have read in this multi-author series. There are a total of 12 with only one more that has not yet released.
So far this one is the cleanest/sweetest one I have read.
Lady Patience name is deceiving. She is by no means patient with members of the ton who ignore her edicts and wishes to keep others from suffering like her mother did.
Sinclair Chambers, Earl of St. Seville came to London with one thought in mind… To earn enough money boxing to save his estate and his people.
Patience’s father brings him home after finding him being beaten and calls for a doctor to tend his injuries.
Hearing noises that wake her Patience thinks her brothers have returned home but instead finds a half dressed man she doesn’t know occupying her brother’s bedchamber. rather than identify himself he climbs from the second story window to disappear into the night.
After this inauspicious beginning our couple become enamored with one another however they take no steps toward intimacy. Instead Patience takes over the training of Sin so he is more proficient at boxing.
Instead of a hot romp in the sheets this book includes a story of lies by omission and feelings of betrayal.
Will our couple get past the untruths or will Sinclair’s lies lead to the end between the couple?
I gave this novella 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 1 of 5 flames. No intimacy ever develops between our couple.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review. I also received a link to an ARC at Bookfunnel from the author.
This in no way affected my opinion of this novella which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
Earl of St. Seville ©2018 Christina McKnight
Perhaps she should have knocked.
Or, preferably, remained safely abed.
Before her stood a man, not one of her brothers that she still pictured as boys even though they were two and four years her senior, but instead a true man—stripped to the waist, his back to her.
Thank the heavens above for small miracles.
But to deny that her heart skipped a beat—or ten—would be preposterous. In fact, as Patience stood, unnoticed, studying the man now looking out Merit’s open window, she wondered if her heart would ever beat a normal, steady rhythm again or if her skin would ever cool enough to need an overcoat or shawl. It was only when her lungs began to burn that she realized she’d held her breath since opening the door, a call of greeting stuck in her throat.
One utterly forgotten.
So intent on the window, the man failed to notice he was no longer alone.
There was no denying the stranger’s presence—an unfamiliar masculine air filled the room. It was both intriguing and frightening. Certainly, she’d witnessed men in various stages of undress, but this goliath was different. Never had Patience been so utterly aware of her own body, while distracted by the sight of another’s chiseled form. Her hands itched to reach out at the same time they should be raising to cover her exposed flesh, veiled only by her thin nightshift.
