Overview

Everyone knows the man they call "Lord Lightning" is a cold-hearted rake with an unsavory reputation—all except Eliza Farrell, an innocent young astrologer fresh from a small country village whose horoscopes tell her he is a man who was born to love.

When Eliza's predictions drive away Lord Lightning's mistress, he indulges in one of his famous pranks and abducts her, telling her she must take his mistress's place. It's just a joke. But when Eliza shockingly takes him up on his offer, the dissolute lord meets his match in a woman as passionate and unpredictable as himself. 

Originally published in 2010, this second edition has been edited and improved.

About the Author

Jenny Brown studied history in graduate school. Her first professional sale as a writer was a biographical piece about Louisa May Alcott’s childhood. Years later, her favorite hobby continues to be reading biographies of people who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. She has earned her living in many different ways including performing as a singer-songwriter in Nashville, developing software, and publishing acclaimed nonfiction. She lives in rural Western Massachusetts.

Jenny's characters are often outcasts or rebels. Her heroes have a long way to go before they become the loving men her heroines deserve. Her heroines are strong, adventurous women who take control of their own fate but must do so within the limitations of the society into which they were born. Readers of mainstream historical fiction appreciate that her books are written with respect for the language, history, and culture of the Georgian era in England in which they are set.

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.

A fun read, got through it in one day; surprisingly dark moment at the end. I liked the novelty of her being a seer. It was an engaging read overall
