I love love love this book! The attention to historical accuracy makes it a cut above most historical romance. The Victorian mores and attitudes are captured perfectly. But instead of being dry or superficial, The Unseducible Earl is full of emotion, poignancy, and heart. Victoria Thorne is a Nightingale nurse recently returned from the Crimea and hired by the Earl of Cheriton to nurse his brother, also a Crimea vet, back to health. As Victoria cares for Jamie, she is also able to deal with her own issues that linger from living and working in a war zone. At Cheriton Court, she expected to work hard, to help patients with her skills, and to face some opposition. She never expected the intense attraction she feels for the earl--the betrothed earl. Robben Merrick is betrothed to a woman who is perfect for him. On paper. He doesn't love her, but he expects affection will come. It is time for him to marry and produce an heir. He's grateful his fiancee is willing to postpone their announcement while his brother is still battling for his life, even though he's out of battlefield danger and safe at home at Cheriton Court. His growing feelings for his brother's nurse are not part of his plans. And he cannot act on them, even if it feels like he is sentencing himself to a loveless marriage and a broken heart. Humphreys is a wonderful writer. I felt every bit of Victoria and Robb's attraction and brokenness. There are a couple of sub-plots that added to the depth of the story and made the ending even more satisfactory.
