Enjoyed this but did feel the ending was a bit rushed.

In the second story of the Lords of Eton series, Jack St. John (SinJin to his friends) has become the East of Slade. He has taken his seat in Parliament and is enthusiastic and successful in his political efforts. However, the earldom is not wealthy and he needs money to dower his sisters and fulfill the vow he made to his father that he would not let the ancestral home crumble to dust. He turns to his friend Jane Featherstone to help him court and win her cousin who is an heiress. Although Jane loves Jack, she agrees. Things don’t go exactly as they planned. With the stage set, this story allows the reader to enjoy the interaction of the characters and just wait to see how it all works out. There is a very nice solution to the Lord Slade’s dilemma. All he needs to do is recognize it. The characters are likeable, and they like each other. There is a little excitement in the political element of the story, only a dash of action, but interesting. I recommend this one to those who like sweet romances with a little surprise. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. The review is my own.

Lord Slade needs a wife with a dowry so he can pay for his sisters to come out when they are old enough. He made a vow to his father to marry someone who could restore the castle that the family owns that is falling into ruins. Jane is a very smart girl who is pretty but not ravishing. She is helping to bring Lady Sarah out and to find her a husband. Lord Slade needs help to woo Lady Sarah and asks Jane. He does not know she is in love with him Lord Slade is very in to politics and Jane is very knowledgeable about them as well. Jane has met someone who wants to marry her but Lord Slade cannot let this happen. Will Lord Slade marry Lady .Sarah or lose the castle. It is a sweet and lovely story. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no other compensation.

Good read. Jane is fearful /anxious with her clueless brother (looking to marry Jane off) and his selfish wife, trying to get Jane out of the house. Jack is titled with a homeless estate and clueless about his feelings. Liked that both are intelligent and compassionate; I was disappointed by their immature actions. Standalone in a series. Voluntarily read ARC for honest review.

Miss Jane Featherstone is riding with her lovely cousin, Lady Sarah Bertram. Sarah is the daughter of the Earl of Clegg and the granddaughter to George Berkley, a wealthy banker. Jane is a plain, young woman and when she is seated next to Sarah, she feels quite drab. In addition, Sarah has a large fortune which means she will be the top of the season’s debutantes. Jane has had a secret crush on Lord Jack St. John, the fourth Earl of Slade. He has been a long-time friend of her father’s and they enjoy discussing politics, allowing her to take part as well. Having met Sarah and Jane when they were out riding, Lord Slade is going to attend tonight’s ball where Sarah will be introduced to society. That evening while Sarah is dancing, Lord Slade and Jane sit and talk about some of the reform issues currently being discussed in the House of Commons. Even though Jane is not a beautiful woman, Lord Slade finds she is delicately pretty and is surprised that she has not yet wed. He tells her that he plans to court Sarah and, hoping to win her hand, he wants Jane to help him win her. Jane responds that she wants Sarah to make her own decisions. His brother later explains their family’s need for money to Jane in that Lord Slade needs Sarah's fortune for he had made a vow to his dying father to return their home, Dunvale Castle, to its former glory. Jane agrees to help him with his courtship of Sarah but only if he can promise her that he truly loves Sarah. I honestly found this story quite tedious to get through. There is way too much political discussion, which made this story literally boring. I have long been a fan of Cheryl Bolen, but I’m afraid that this book was a disappointment for me.

The Earl, the Vow, and the Plain Jane by Cheryl Bolen Like that I had just read the first one and this one reaches out to others I've met in the prior book. It's great to catch up with everyone and also it's a good stand alone. Love how the title has the components of the book story itself. So many emotions they go through while attending events that include dancing. Love the political dinners and discussions and how important they are and love the secrets that come out about who is writing the articles for the paper. Love hearing of the food and precise details of coming out mean. Very descriptive details just walking outside near the gardens-so lovely. You know they can never be married because of a vow made. Found at times there were a lot of characters that might confuse the readers. About the author and other works by the author are included at the end. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.
