The Earl Who Loved Her (The Honorable Scoundrels, #2) by Sophie Barnes

A chance meeting…

Eve Potter can hardly wait to arrive at Amberly Hall for the Christmas season! The hope is that she will make a match with an eligible gentleman. But as fate would have it, she misses the coach that is sent to collect her from her point of arrival, and starts out on foot…only to go in the wrong direction. Nearly frozen, she arrives at BlackHall, where she is invited inside and introduced to the master of the house, the Earl of Ravenworth. Eve is smitten, for he is beyond handsome, which makes him a temptation she must avoid. But can she…?

Bryce Harlowe lives as a recluse, shuned by Society and even his own family after being accused of a scandelous transgression. The young woman at his door cannot stay at Blackhall less her reputation be ruined. And yet, when the pesky winter climate leaves them snowed in together at Blackhall, Bryce and Eve grow closer, each discovering a mutual respect and longing for the other. Until Bryce’s past is revealed, threatening to rip apart their newfound love…

Eve Potter was looking forward to spending the Christmas season with her best friend at Amberly Hall. When her impatience wins out over a snow storm, she accidentally ends up at Black Hall. The Earl of Ravensworth was shunned from society because of a transgression he was accused of. He wants to get Eve back to where she’s headed as soon as possible. However, he can’t help the attraction between them. I didn’t like this book. It was an instant immense attraction I just wasn’t feeling. I didn’t really like the characters. The worst part for me was after her friend appears in the book. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

After her second sister, Louise, excepts a position as governess up north, Eve takes her oldest sister Josephine’s advice to accept a friend’s invitation for Christmas. She doesn’t want to leave Josephine alone but it will be an excellent opportunity to take advantage of her friend Margaret’s excellent connections. The three sisters, great granddaughters of the Earl of Priorsbridge, have been struggling financially since their father died. Louise is now a governess, and Josephine an accountant. They want Eve to make an excellent match and so are saving to give her a Season. With Margaret’s family connections she may be able to meet the right man. Not wanting to leave her sister alone for the holiday, but understanding the potential benefits of the visit, Eve sets off by mail coach for Haversham. Arriving half an hour earlier than expected and with the weather quickly turning, Eve decides to walk to Margaret’s house rather than wait. She sets off toward the lights in the distance and arrives, not at the Haversham home, but at the home of the Earl of Ravensworth. Bryce, the Earl of Ravensworth is immediately struck and completely dazed upon first glimpse of Eve. Gathering himself together he offers her hospitality until his coach can be made ready to take her to her friends home. Disaster strikes when they realise the road has become impassible and Eve must stay the night. Enjoyed The Character Interactions As one night turns into several while they are snowed in, I enjoyed how the characters interacted and became drawn to each other. The author seems to effortlessly throw you into the world of the characters and make you want to stay there. This is the second in the series of “The Honourable Scoundrels”, and I cant wait to read the third, The Duke Who Came To Town. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the novella provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review. KriisGaia

Eve Potter’s sister, Josephine, is encouraging her to go visit with her friend, Margaret Havisham, at Amberly Hall. Eve is hesitant to go because Josephine would be home by herself. Their parents had passed away some years ago. Their sister, Louise, has just left to take a governess position in the north of England. Josephine works hard as an accountant to keep their bills paid. Their uncle is their guardian but they have never met him and they don’t want to ask him for money. When Eve arrived at the meeting place for Margaret’s carriage, she waited a bit and seeing a home in the distance decided to walk to it. When she knocked on the door, she found herself not at Margaret’s home, but instead at Ravenworth, the home of Bryce Elliot Hatlowe, Earl of Ravenworth. It turns out that Amberly Hall is a few miles down the road in the other direction. Bryce kindly offers her tea and a chance to warm up and then plans to take her to Amberly Hall. Quickly though, the roads freeze and she must stay overnight at Ravenworth. But Bryce and his servants are the only people at his home necessitating that Eve lie and say she stayed at an Inn. With no female chaperone, she cannot tell the truth. The days pass with more delays and then Eve hurts her ankle making things even worse. What will Margaret say when she finds out that Eve has spent a week under the roof of a single man? Will Eve be ruined? Oh but Eve and Bryce have had some lovely talks and have enjoyed getting to know one another. Could this lead to something more? I enjoyed this lovely novella and can honestly say that once again, Sophie Barnes has written another beautiful story. I know readers will enjoy it as much as I did.
