    The Earl's Inconvenient Wife by Ruth Ann Nordin
    Two people at the same ball. Both are spouse hunting. Lord Roderick, The Earl of Weston needs a Lady Roderick to give him an heir. Seems his brother had the nerve to fall off his horse and die before getting the job done. Nathaniel is not anxious to be married but he's found a lady who will do, and he likes her father. But how easily the plans on one man can fall by the wayside when he tries to be a gentleman and stop someone from ruination.

    Claire Lowell is in her first Season. Unlike her sister Lilly who loves all the hoopla, Claire ends up feeling closed in when she's in crowds. She found herself a gentleman tonight that she could see herself with, only he was called away suddenly. As she feels faint she heads to the veranda...if only she could have taken someone with her outside. An innocent escape for a breath of fresh air ends up with Claire married a week later, to a man who hates her and only sees her as someone who trapped him into marriage.

    Can two people who don't want to be together and don't trust each other ever end up with a truce? And how can the truth be heard when Nate has turned a deaf ear to Claire's pleas?

    Once again Ruth comes through with a great story with humor and adventure and characters with personalities that make them real. Some you want to hug while others could use a good slap. I am looking forward to other books she'll write in this period to see how the other characters can get their own happy endings.
    **Sexual situations within marriage.

    Excellent

    As for the sex scene...yes, people have sex...at least they were married! If you don't like it skim over it. But really this is a romance!

    Really disjointed

    There was a weird flow to the whole piece and i feel like the dialogue was forced. It definitely was not an engrossing book though the plot was decent.

    Okay

    This book was kind of blah. Not bad, but not great either. I read a lot ofhistoricals and this one will fade from mind soon. I will admit to thinking the cover is classy though, which actually tipped me over the edge when deciding to buy.

    I really loved this book! I've read some of Ruth Ann Nordin's western romances, but this was her first Regency, and it was a VERY entertaining read. I had trouble putting this one down. It was nicely paced throughout the story, not a dull moment anywhere. I can't wait for the next in the series to come out!

    This is a very good story for the time period. Over reactions and plotting abound. Lord Roderick is a difficult character to like but keep in mind his world was entirely made up of political and military stuff. He's all business and practicality. He never expected to be earl. He's out of his depth.

    Having read and enjoyed other romances by Ruth Ann Nordin, I thought that I'd give her Regency romance a try. I was not disappointed. The storyline was very good, and the characters interesting. Hopefully, Ms Nordin will write more with Lord Clement and Mister Robinson as the main character.

    Not bad

    This one was okay. It didnt leave me wanting more from this author although i would read her again. I didnt like all the rolling eyes...there are other ways to describe exasperation than to constantly have people roll thier eyes. Good storyline, but the author didnt take enough time to let you get into the characters. Moved quickly...one minute he didnt like her and the next he felt bad for being too hard on her. However, not bad.

    Catch The Eyeball!

    A few good scenes; i.e., start of story, exploits with Mr. Robinson, but it ends there! Slow moving, not much of a plot, & had to roll my eyes over the excessive usage of, "rolled (his/her) eyes." Was this story edited?

    2.5 stars --Average ¿ forgettable

    This book was kind of blah. Not bad, but not great either. I read a lot of historical novels and this one was a bit farfetched in the way people of different stations was portrait. The cover is classy though, which actually made think this might be a really good book, but it was just average like all the other ones with bad covers. The flow was a bit off for the whole piece and the dialogue felt forced. It definitely was not an engrossing book.

    Meh

    It was an ok story. It was a little slow and I didn't really feel like I was in the 1900s. It seemed a little redundant, but the story was pleasant. Quick light read.
