Overview

They call him "Lord Lightning". . .

For his shocking behavior. An unrepentant rogue with a wicked reputation, his outrageous conduct ensures no woman will get close enough to hurt him.

But demure and lovely astrologer Eliza Farrell casts a chart that tells her Lord Hartwood is capable of great, passionate love. When Hartwood indulges in one of his famous pranks and invites Eliza to become his new mistress, the virginal country miss must meet her fate armed only with her knowledge that the cynical lord will become the tender lover she sees predicted in the stars.

Though Eliza is nothing like the brazen strumpets he prefers, the seemingly incorruptible seer excites Lord Lightning much more than the hard, calculating women he is accustomed to. Eliza's trusting spirit and quick mind touch his cold heart—and when the bewitching innocent surprisingly agrees to be seen on his arm, neither can predict the sparks that will fly between them . . . or resist the electric passion that will threaten to transform them both.

In 1818 in England, Eliza Farrell computes Lord Edward Neville's astrological chart. Known as Lord Lightning, he has the reputation as a womanizer with no heart. However, she insists he conceals behind his philandering his desire to find true love. Her actions and prank he pulled that backfired lead to Edward's current mistress leaving him. Edward demands Eliza come with him when he visits his mom to comply with his brother's will. Eliza agrees as she can make some money and also observe how accurate her reading of her host is. Eliza acts the role he demanded of her leading to his mother wanting her to leave. However, Edward likes her and they become lovers until tragedy strikes. The use of an astrologer as the lead female brings freshness to what would otherwise be a typical by the book Regency romance. Instead Eliza's charting and the reaction of the rakehell's mom to his latest unacceptable "fallen" female make for a fun historical that fans will appreciate. As the rake and the astrologer fall in love, E squared equals electrifying love and an enjoyable read for sub-genre fans. Harriett Klausner

I really enjoyed this. Jenny Brown does a great job of weaving history with romance and throwing a bit of astrology in for fun. I found it an actually plausible storyline, never too heavy handed with the the sizzle and swelter, but just a really fun adventure between a rogue and the slightly quirky starcharter who inadvertently tames him. A great read and a lot of fun!

I was so bored trying to read this book, it had such a great premise, but the delivery fell way short. Very disappointing.
