Overview

The chase is on in award-winning author Amanda Forester's brand-new Regency romance series!

A sizzling scandal just waiting to happen...

Orphaned at a young age, Lady Katherine Ashton and her brother have spent most of their lives on the high seas, seeking to restore their family fortune through somewhat dubious means. After that kind of adventure, Kate knows she won't ever be accepted as a proper society lady.

To the annoyingly clever, temptingly handsome, and altogether troublesome Earl of Wynbrook, society ladies are a dead bore. Kate, on the other hand, is scandalous, alluring, and altogether fascinating. And Kate can't decide which she relishes more, the thrill of chasing fearsome pirates, or having Wynbrook chase after her...

"Sparkles with humor and a delightful cast of characters." -RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars for A Midsummer Bride
"A scintillating Regency romance full of festive fun, intrigue, and subterfuge!" -Fresh Fiction on A Winter Wedding

The plot was extremely enjoyable and I really enjoyed the interaction between the two leads.

I really enjoyed Kate and John's story! Both Kate and John had misconceptions about the other and it was great to watch them learn who the other really was. This was definitely a great start to a new series by Forester.

'If The Earl Only Knew' by Amanda Forester is book one in the "The Daring Marriages" series. This is the story of Lady Katherine Ashton and John the Earl of Wynbrook. This story got you end from the first few pages. We learned that Katherine and her twin brother had to struggle after their father died leaving debts. They pretty much it seem had to raise themselves and fight to get back from under such hardship. Katherine's brother did start a friendship with John's younger brother. Their Katherine overheard John talking bad about her to his brother. Katherine still hold that against him in the present day along with a kiss that they had shared back during that time too. But Katherine hopes only to be in London for just a few weeks while they settle up their debits and pay off the people that loan them money to start their business. It was fun to watch how they had to over come how they felt about each other in their presumption of each other. I just can't wait to see a story about her brother...he looks to be a good read too! I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

So fun! I really enjoyed the author's witty and humorous writing style, and the romance had just the right amount of danger and drama to balance it out. How is it I've never read anything from her before? (Two words: BACKLIST and TBR.) I adored Kate's character. She and her twin, Robert, have had such a tough time in life--and very nearly everything they've done, they did for themselves. At the beginning of the book, they're both so stiff and serious, unused to society and ugh--just reading about their plain, austere clothing made me cringe! It was wonderful watching Kate come out of her shell (with a whole lot of help from the Arlingtons...especially John). And John, Earl of Wynbrook? (swoon!) I loved him as a hero. He was just as prickly in his own way in the beginning (their history had some questionable moments) but once he got close to Kate and found out the reasons behind her and Robert's somewhat dubious qualities? OMG, he could not have been a better guy. All the things that she was afraid to tell him, the things that she kept hidden? He had the absolute perfect responses to them all. I just wanted to hug them both. Except I wouldn't. Because Kate keeps a knife strapped to her leg. I loved their romance, and trying to figure out the drama of their past was a lot of fun. Some of the side romances were almost too easily accomplished, though they were still cute. And I am definitely looking forward to finding out the story behind Robert's surprising arrival on the last page! Book 2 will be out...when? ;) Rating: 4 stars / A- I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Kate was a departure from your average, lady of means, coquettish character that leads most historical romance. She had a past that was provocative and a spirit that could not be tamed. I love these type of leading women because they are more than a pretty face. More depth is hiding behind the exterior. If the Earl Only Knew blended adventurous spirit with action packed storylines and seductive plot twists and intriguing mystery. Was sad to see it end.
