Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Violet Redmond had been humored for so long by her family, especially by her brothers, that she considers her bored yet intemperate behavior to be acceptable. Her elder brother Lyon had disappeared from their midst a year ago, something to do with that awful Olivia Eversea. Violet overhears sea captain Asher Flint, the newly minted Earl of Ardmay, discussing his search for a pirate called Le Chat and decides the miscreant is her missing sibling (Lyon = lion = big cat). She impetuously stows away on Flint's ship, and when he discovers his surprise "guest," Flint thinks the unbridled Lady Violet needs disciplining. Or does he find her determination and constancy regarding her brother's innocence more appealing than annoying?Verdict The talented Long (Like No Other Lover) adds to her Redmond/Eversea series with this lushly written story of two strong, steadfast individuals in opposition as they navigate rough waters to finding the truth yet hesitant to acknowledge its repercussions. Long's sumptuous language reveals her protagonists as flawed yet resolute and finally more than open to passion and love. Exquisite for romance fans. One caveat: the quality of the proofreading in this finished edition is well below par; Long and her readers deserve better. [Ebook ISBN 978-0-06-200018-7.]—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal

    Amazing

    This author certainly has a way of having the chemistry between the two main characters leap off the page at you. Proving that the seduction could b just as much fun as the prize. I could feel the sexual tension oozing off the pages and it made for an exciting and beautiful romance. The Pennyroyal Green series in one of my favorites in this genre, but this one book could very well be my favorite.

    I recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about earls and dukes and the ton and encourage all to read the series, but if you are not inclined to do so this book can be read as a stand alone as well.

    An outstanding read!!!

    The only thing that would make this book better is if it would keep going! You become connected to the characters and want them both to win. I enjoyed it so much I had to read it twice! It is still on the home page of my nook so I can keep going back without having to look for it.

    An Adventurous, Sexy Romp Long Fans Will Love

    This latest installment in Julie Anne Long's Pennyroyal Green series, I KISSED AN EARL is Violet Redmond's book. If you're familiar with the series, you'll remember Violet as a key player in LIKE NO OTHER LOVER. When she is introduced at a ball to the newly elevated sea captain, the Earl of Ardmay, and his first mate Lord Lavay, Violet is intrigued. After all, hadn't the gypsy girl said the name Lavay to her? And hadn't she foretold that Violet would go on a long journey over water? But what intrigues her more is the fact that Ardmay has been charged by the king to stop a pirate calling himself Le Chat from stealing the cargo of English sailing vessels. When she hears that Le Chat's ship is called THE OLIVIA, which just so happens to be the name of the woman who broke her brother Lyon's heart, Violet is convinced that there is a real possibility that Le Chat is her missing brother. So, she sneaks herself onto Ardmay's ship and well, you can guess how well that goes over with the Earl.

    What follows is the best sort of cabin/seafaring romance written with the witty, crisp, lyrical prose that Long has become known for. I loved the way that Olivia and Ardmay fell for one another despite themselves, and the conflicts that genuinely stand in the way of their ever being able to be together. The HEA comes with compromises on both sides, but the result is sigh-inducing satisfaction. Wonderful read.

    If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, it’s bec

    If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, it’s become evident that I have a growing love for the romance genre. There’s just something about the glamour of historical romances: fancy dresses, grand balls, elaborate house parties….I literally cannot get enough. I follow a bunch of romance novel related blogs/publishers on Twitter and saw there was going to be an “earl” themed eBook sale. This might have been the worst idea for my bank account, but best idea for me ever! One of the interesting books I got was I Kissed An Earl by Julie Anne Long.

    Violet Redmond has quite a reputation. Known for her reckless behavior and stunning beauty, Violet does not court suitors in a manner that befits a woman of her status. However, she is independent and knows what she wants, so only the bravest suitors attempt to woo her. Violet is not only looking for an exciting man, but also a clue to her brother’s whereabouts, as he has been missing for some time. There is one man, however, that fits this bill. The Earl of Ardmay, born a bastard, is an Englishman who knows no boundaries. Currently at sea chasing a pirate and vowing vengeance, the Earl first notices Violet when her unwavering belief in her brother’s innocence angers him. It is not for long, however, as this anger turns to interest. The Earl is smitten with Violet, and she is taken by him despite his raucous past. What will this clash of two strong personalities bring? What will become of Violet’s brother?

    As I’ve said many times before, I’m always a fan of a strong heroine. Violet definitely fits the bill in this story. She’s strong-willed, brave, and most importantly, on a journey to find herself. Consumed by her anger over her brother’s disappearance and unjust accusations, Violet is lost in her emotions as they take over. She needs stability, and that stability ironically comes from one of the most raucous characters in the novel: the Earl of Ardmay. Although he comes from a battered childhood, it has shaped him into a man who has an inner strength that allows him to overcome any hardship and take on the world without blinking. This is just what Violet needs, for as much as both she and the Earl put on a strong exterior, both have weaknesses that this exterior hides. Their relationship, while the main pull of the story, is not the only appealing thing about this work. The dynamic between the Earl and his shipmates, as well as the relationship between Violet’s brother Lyon and Olivia, the woman he loves, also added to the intrigue of the novel. (Sword fights, pirates, and the fight for love aren’t bad plot devices either!)

    While there were many positives to this novel, there were a few small things that detracted from my enjoyment of this work. There were some typos, spelling errors, and even a few missed words here and there. This made it slightly jarring to read at times, and broke up the fluidity of the text. I understand that not everything can be proofread 100% perfectly every time, but this definitely made me pause at times and lose my train of thought. Despite this detraction, I definitely enjoyed the interplay between Violet and the Earl. Adding this to the exciting subplot of Violet’s brother’s disappearance made this novel a fun thrilling ride. For those of you who love a good Earl (and who doesn’t!) this is a fun pick.

    strong Pennyroyal Green historical entry

    At a gala, Violet Redmond and Captain Asher "Savage" Flint a new Earl meet; with him is his first mate Lord Lavay. The Crown has assigned the sea captain to end the reign of notorious pirate Le Chat whose vessel is called Olivia, the name of the woman who broke her brother's heart. Asher believes Violet's missing brother Lyon is Le Chat.

    Recognizing what a gypsy foretold her and what she overheard between the earl and his first mate, Violet sneaks onto Flint's vessel as he heads to Cadiz. Flint finds his stowaway and is charmed by her sibling allegiance, but even as they fall in love he plans to insure that the pirate has no more cat lives.

    The latest Pennyroyal Green historical (see Like No Other Lover) is a strong entry as love is tested and seems doomed to failure if Lyon proves to be le Chat as both lead characters believe. Fast-paced, this high seas romance is an entertaining tale as her brother whether he is the pirate or not stands between the Earl and the Lady as they are conflicted over her sibling.

    Don't Miss This One

    Love this whole series. Each book stands alone, but come on, you are going to enjoy a series so much more if you read the in order. I hate to choose, but this is one of my favorites. Julie Anne Long writes vivid characters with wit and emotion. Much of this story takes place at sea as the hero is tracking a notorious pirate who may or may not be Violet Redmond's missing brother. She falls in love with Asher, but she loves her brother. She wants to find her brother, but she doesn't want Asher to find him. Wonderful dilemma.

    Not Long's Best

    This doesn't have the lightness and humor I liked in many of the author's previous works but it's still pretty good. Good characters, good conflict, good premise but something was missing for me. If you haven't read this author before, go have a look at her first few novels---they are excellent!

    Well I finished Julie Ann Long's I KISSED AN EARL and I enjoyed

    Well I finished Julie Ann Long's I KISSED AN EARL and I enjoyed it. She does describe things in great detail and sometimes it lose me in information. Violet is a feisty, stubborn, trouble making and doesn't look before you jump woman who loves people with all her heart, mind and soul. Flint aka Savage is a breed of man I love to read about. He comes from nothing and tries to makes himself be the best man he can. He is hard headed, commanding, stubborn, takes no lip, stern and loves to collect "down on your luck" people. Two stubborn people like Violet and Flint are like oil and water. But what makes oil and water mix is shaking them up and what better way to shake things up is on a long voyage on THE FORTUNA, Flint's ship. I have tried to read the first 2 Pennyroyal Green novels but don't like them but I am now a Julie Ann Long fan. I can't wait to read her next book, WHAT I DID FOR A DUKE. I give this book 3 fingers up and 7 toes.
