Overview

Earl Interrupted by Amanda Forester

Captain Robert Ashton, Earl of Darington, knows finding a bride in London will not be easy—not since he has been notoriously dubbed as the "Pirate Earl". What he didn't expect was to get abducted—and to have his escape go horribly awry when an innocent lady gets caught in the crossfire.

Amateur physician Emma St. James is on her way to meet her betrothed when she is rescued by an injured gentleman. Despite her shock after discovering he is the Pirate Earl, Emma feels drawn to the man who saved her life. Duty forces them apart, but when they meet again on the high seas, Darington will risk all—his fortune, his name, and even his life to keep her safe.

If the Earl Only Knew (Book 1)

I really enjoyed Robert and Emma's story. It was definitely not your typical historical romance. With all the hijinks, it kept me throughly enthralled and I didn't want to put the book down. I can't wait to see what Forester has in store for us next!

Exciting story that didn't need to rely on sex to be good. Christian views expressed without the sanctimony. I really enjoyed the book.

A fun read! The events of this one take place somewhat concurrently with the ones from book one in the series ( If the Earl Only Knew ) but as each is focused on a different twin (Robert "Dare" in this one and Kate in the other) they could also work as standalones. To be honest, I've forgotten most of the details of the first book already, so it was pretty much as if I was starting here anyway--and I did just fine ;) Emma and Dare's story is a sweet romance with more than a touch of danger thrown in. It was a bit frustrating at times--much of their issues could have been resolved with frank discussions--but overall it was a lot of fun to read, and the ending was more than satisfying. There is a touch of religion here that I wasn't quite expecting--Emma finds a lot of comfort in her faith and occasionally quotes scripture and prays--it's not overwhelming, but if that bothers you just be warned. Can't wait to see where Ms. Forester will go next! Rating: 4 stars / B+ I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

earl interrupted is the second part of the daring marriages series. robert ashton, earl of darington is more comfortable on a ship's deck than in a society drawing room. having recovered his family's fortunes on the high seas, it's time for him to return to london and make an acceptable marriage. except for all his strength and determination managing an unruly crew, speaking with delicate young ladies terrifies him and twists his tongue into knots. miss emma st. james finds herself in difficult circumstances. about to reach her majority and in line to inherit her father's estate, her stepmother and stepbrother are trying to find a way to have her declared insane if she doesn't marry her stepbrother. so she runs away having promised to marry a stranger in america and immediately finds trouble. rescued by robert, who has been shot, emma refuses to leave him behind when they both must seek refuge from the men who have assaulted them. this puts them in a most improper situation and in close quarters. early on robert finds that being with emma is easy. he can speak with her. he enjoys her company. and even though he should feel pressured into marriage given the circumstances, he's genuinely happy to propose to her and isn't doing it out of societal obligations. when she says no he's actually disappointed. he needs to find a way to convince her that he isn't asking for her hand because he feels he must, but because he wants to. there is some real drama and excitement surrounding darington's nemesis, esqueleto, and the troubles he and his sister faced as chiildren and emma's voyage to america. this regency romance takes place in a unique setting and proves to be very enjoyable. told over the same time frame as robert's sister's romance, if the earl only knew, the novel stands alone but the glimpses you see of lady kate's and lord wynbrook's relationship does make you want to add it to your tbr if you haven't already read it. **earl interrupted will publish on january 2, 2018. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/sourcebooks casablanca in exchange for my honest review.

Earl Interrupted by Amanda Forester is book Two in "The Daring Marriages" series. This is the story of Captain Robert Ashton, Earl of Darington and Emma St. James. I have read (and loved the previous book 'If the Earl Only Knew' but feel this can be a standalone book. This book story line runs at the same time as the last book so there is not days or years past since the last book timeline. Dare and his twin sister have return after being on the run for so long to keep out of debtor's prison. Dare has enough money to return and pick up his life as a Earl along with finding a wife. But Dare soon learns that someone from his at sea days are after him. On one such attempt to take his sister he ends up saving and meeting Emma. Emma is trying to start her a new life away from her Step mother and Step brother. After Emma's refusal to sign papers to turn over her inheritance or marry her stepbrother has her in big trouble with them. But then she meets Dare and that takes her and him into a new chapter in them starting a new life....but they had to go through some hoops to get there. I had been waiting to see what Dare's story would be! It did not disappoint at all....loved it!

The dare is to not fall in love with not only the characters, but the author as well. Adventure on the high seas spills over to dry land with a Pirate Earl and an amateur physician. Earl Interrupted is an active look at a dangerous love affair that ignites the heart and inspires the soul. Any tale that inspires women to be courageous in not only matters of the heart, but following their dreams is A - okay with me. Robert and Emma steam up the pages of this action packed thrill ride.

A Swashbuckling Romance This was a book that swept me away into another world. We have treason, murder, pirates, scheming relatives, a practical and beautiful lady with medical talents and a privateer Earl in need of a wife. A highly enjoyable read, try it for yourself. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
