Violet Redmond's family and fortune might be formidable and her beauty and wit matchless—but her infamous flare for mischief keeps all but the most lionhearted suitors at bay. Only Violet knows what will assuage her restlessness: a man who doesn't bore her to tears, and a clue to the fate of her missing brother. She never dreamed she'd find both with a man whose own pedigree is far from impeccable.
"Savage" is what the women of the ton whisper about the newly styled Earl of Ardmay—albeit with shivers of pleasure. Born an English bastard, raised on the high seas, he's on a mission to capture a notorious pirate for vengeance. But while Violet's belief in her brother's innocence maddens him, her courage awes him . . . and her sensuality finally undoes him. Now the man who once lost everything and the girl who has everything to lose are bound by a passion that could either end in betrayal . . . or become everything they ever dreamed.
I Kissed An Earl
The story was amazing but there is a lot of mistakes regarding the editing. This book really needs to be re-edited. But other then that it was really good : D
I Kissed An Earl
This is my 2nd Julie Ann Long book and I loved it. I read alot, across all genres, and though I'm a fellow writer (of 18 books with a RITA proudly gracing my office) I still find there's nothing quite as exciting as reading a beautifully crafted book with fully realized characters written by someone with the skill to make me care about them as much as they come to care about each other. Flint and Violet and their story was fresh, complex and unexpected. I couldn't put it down..
Ok at best
This is an ok book. Not particularly bad, not particularly good. You really don't get a look into Flint's internal thoughts until about half way thru the book. He is the better of the two characters. Violet is portrayed as catty and naive to the point she is vapid and it makes the love story ring hollow.
The underlying storyline of Lyon is not well developed. I never felt invested in his quest to earn the love of Olivia. Having not read any of the other books, I'm not sure if the development of these two characters takes place prior to Violet's story. I just know that is this story the Lyon-Olivia storyline is weak and incomplete.
