Overview

The Earl in My Bed, a Valentine novella from New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan, is a lively, sexy historical romance that bridges Lessons from a Scandalous Bride and the final installment of the popular Forgotten Princesses series.
 
All her life, everyone assumed Paget Ellsworth, the vicar’s daughter, would marry the Earl of Winningham's youngest son. And when he left for war with his older brother, Jamie, words and promises were not necessary.
 
Four years pass and the death of his father forces Jamie home to take up the reins as the new earl, leaving his brother fighting on the front lines a world away. Maddening, infuriating, sexy Jamie makes her question her feelings. One glimpse, one word from him, awakens desire in her heart. When a simple kiss spirals out of control at the annual Valentine's Day ball, she realizes the man she never wanted is the man she needs... Will Paget cast aside all she's ever thought to be true to win the man of her dreams?

Library Journal
When Jamie, the heir to the Earl of Winningham, comes home from the wars in India, Paget Ellsworth is certainly not going to welcome him back. Paget had grown up with two of the earl’s sons but felt nothing but animosity toward the third. With one brother dead, one in India, and the heir back in England, Paget and Jamie fight a growing attraction. Their anger and childhood resentment divide them, but they share a concern for a brother and friend who has yet to return home safely. The village may have assumed Paget was meant for brother Owen, but it’s Jamie who inspires passion and love. How can she love one man and let go of another?

Verdict This stand-alone and woefully short novella offers readers a quick but engrossing read. Jordan (Lessons from a Scandalous Bride) strikes the match of romance quickly between two characters who, for all their antagonism, eventually find a way to create a life together. A well-written and satisfying read, this title will have readers eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.—Debra M. Dudek, Fountaindale P.L. Dist., Bolingbrook, IL
