Wicked Earls Club 6-11Meet six of the most wickedly sinful earls in all of Regency England. Together they make up the Wicked Earls’ Club. A secret group, marked with a single golden W; it is a place where these deliciously devious earls can indulge in their darkest desires. Though fate may have something else planned for them entirely.

Earl of Weston by Anna St. Claire

Edward Hunter, confirmed bachelor, returns from an assignment with the Crown to find his brother killed and himself the new Earl of Weston—a position he never wanted. Hattie Longbottom is an aging, sheltered spinster who suddenly finds herself forced to leave her home with her beloved parrot, Archie, and travel to her brother’s home. Can a reluctant earl revenge his brother’s murder and save a spinster in the process?

Earl of Davenport by Maggie Dallen

The Devil of Davenport is in need of a bride. Everyone knows the wicked earl is looking to wed, but only his childhood friend Anne knows his secret. Despite what society believes, he’s not a devil—not really. Not at all. Of course, he’s no saint either. He’s all man. And while Anne’s less scandalous sister might be the logical choice for a wife, she’s not the one who makes his pulse race. To win his angel, this earl may just have to live up to his devilish title.

Earl of Grayson by Amanda Mariel

Charlotte is a true lady and Damien a determined rake. When their paths cross they have every reason to turn in the opposite direction, and yet they cannot seem to avoid one another. Passions flare, putting them both at risk. They stand not only to lose their reputations, but more importantly, their hearts.

Earl of Pembroke by Lauren Smith

James, the Earl of Pembroke, falls for a mysterious lady and rescues her from a hell fire club… 

Gillian, the illegitimate daughter of an earl, is hiding her true identity as a servant from James… 

When thrown together at a house party, their passion can’t be denied, but will the truth of Gillian’s past destroy their happiness?

Gillian Beaumont is no lady, as the bastard daughter of an earl and working as a lady’s maid, the last thing she needs is to fall in love with an earl. But when the sweetly seductive Earl of Pembroke mistakes her for her mistress, he falls head over heels for her in this upstairs-downstairs romance.

My Thoughts:

(Reviewed March 2018)

This is the second book I have read in this Multi-Author series.
I love Lauren Smith’s books, especially the Historical Romance and Dragon Shifter Romance.
This book is part of The Wicked earl’s Club and crosses over to be part of Lauren’s series The League of Rogues.
James is an Earl and when he and his sister meet Gillian in a book shop he is immediately drawn to this lovely young woman.
Although Gillian is a daughter of an Earl she is illegitimate. Her mother was the Earl’s mistress after the death of his wife.
Sparks fly between this unlikely Hero and Heroine, but will their obvious attraction lead to marriage?
In the Regency Era that probably wouldn’t happen, but this is fiction so maybe it can.
I gave this novella 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. Although our hero treats Gillian like a lady passion finally wins out.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Earl of St. Seville by Christina McKnight

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?

My Thoughts:

(Reviewed March 2018)

This is the third book I have read in this multi-author series. There are a total of 12 with only three more that have 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.

He’s failed before, but with her help, this time, he might just succeed. 

Henry Crawford has failed to secure the heart of a good woman before ─ and quite spectacularly so! There are few in town who have not heard of his scandalous affair. While his debacle might have proven great fodder for the gossips, it has left him with a shattered heart and a deep desire to change his ways. 

However, change is never easy.

Old habits can die hard, and some friends may wish to see you say as you always were. Thankfully for Henry, there are others, such as Trefor Linton, who will wish to help and will offer his sister as a dance partner to help Henry ease his way into society. 

While most girls her age dream of a rich and handsome husband, Constance Linton is looking for more. She wishes for an intelligent gentleman of good character who is not opposed to a bookish lady. But sifting through the dross in a ballroom in search of such a man is no easy task. 

A gentleman with Henry’s reputation is not the sort of man for whom Constance seeks, yet she is not opposed to lending him her aid in achieving his desires. 

What begins as a single dance will grow into a collaboration that will equip Henry with all he needs to win a woman of worth, while entangling hearts and leaving not only his own heart and reputation but also that of his friend and tutor at risk of being irreparably damaged. 

Henry: To Prove Himself Worthy is part of Leenie Brown’s Other Pens Collection of books that pick up the storytelling pen where Jane Austen put it down. If you like well-written stories of sweet redemption, then you will love this story of facing the challenges that reformation can bring and discovering the pleasure that only deep, abiding love can provide. 

So, put the kettle on, grab your copy of Henry: To Prove Himself Worthy, and let this sweet romance inspire a hope that even the most reprobate heart can, with care and determination, be transformed into that of a worthy gentleman.
