LOVE ISN’T ALWAYS WHAT IT SEEMS.
Get lost in Waiting for an Earl Like You, the next lush, sensual Regency romance in the Masters of Seduction series by USA Today bestselling author Alexandra Hawkins.
Justin Reeve Netherwood, Earl of Kempthorn—a.k.a. Thorn—has never cared much for his neighbor’s daughter. But his twin brother, Gideon, befriended the wild, reckless, and wholly inappropriate Miss Olivia Lydall in youth, and two have been close ever since. So when Olivia finds herself in a state of romantic conflict and seeks out Gideon for advice, he’s only too pleased to oblige. Only problem: The man Olivia is speaking to is Thorn. And now it’s too late for him to tell Olivia the truth…
Thorn always believed that Olivia was too smitten with Gideon for her own good. So what’s the harm in steering her away from him? But Thorn’s charade turns out to be anything but harmless once he begins to see Olivia for who she really is: A woman full of spirit and passion…and someone he can’t live without. But how can Thorn claim Olivia’s heart when their deepening connection—and burning desire—is built on lies and deceit?
Waiting For An Earl Like You is an entertaining, well-written and captivating historical fiction novel.
Identical twin brothers, Thorn and Gideon, have known Olivia since childhood. Although the three played together as children, Olivia gravitated towards Gideon, rather than his brother. Thorn, the young Earl, was too serious and moody for Olivia. She also felt intimidated by him. Since she was only a Baron’s daughter, Olivia didn’t feel worthy of the Earl’s attention. Thorn, however, was jealous of his twin, and the affection Olivia gave him. Gideon told his brother that Olivia was only a friend. The Earl, however, wasn’t so sure about that.
Even as a young man, the Earl of Kempthorn, pushed himself to get whatever he wanted. If it wasn’t freely given, he took it. When Olivia didn’t pay attention to him, he stole kisses from her by pretending to be Gideon. However, when Olivia was kidnapped, Thorn was beside himself with worry. He realized that his obsession with the Baron’s daughter was much more than just lust. He was in love with her.
Olivia had her hands full with the Netherwood brothers, but that was the least of her worries. The man who she considered to be a good friend and suitor, betrayed her in the most despicable manner. And the man whom Olivia realized, that she was in love with, had proven beyond a doubt, that he cherished her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It did become confusing at times, but that’s probably because it’s part of a series, and I haven’t read the first two books as of yet. Still, it was easy enough to fill in the blanks and become engrossed in the story until the very end.
Many thanks, to the publisher and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
Sexy &a Captivating!
Loved it! This was the first time I have read a book by Alexandra Hawkins and i can’t wait to read more. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was captivated from the beginning to the end. This was entertaining and oh so hot! A full story with great details. The authors detailed descriptive narrative places the reader firmly in England during the regency era.
I really liked Thorn and Olivia so much, they were interesting characters. Their chemistry was delicious and provided many great scenes of intrigue, drama and angst. I loved how their interactions heated their desires as they refused to give in to their true feelings. Thorn’s deceptions of acting like he was his twin was exciting and seductive. Loved the secondary characters as well.
An amazing well written storyline with excellent characters. The passionate and entertaining interludes between Thorn and Olivia is like no other. The twists and turns that the story takes makes it all the more captivating. Loved it!
I voluntarily agreed to read an ARC and post an honest review.
Another great book by a wonderful author. A definite must read
