Three Abductions and an Earl (Parvenues & Paramours) by Tessa Candle

"Well-developed characters and an energetic storyline, readers will love the wit, romance, banter, and steam… highly entertaining... Readers who love regency romance with wit and... unexpected twists, will not be disappointed."
—D. Gosney, InD'tale Magazine

Three Abductions and an Earl is a full length novel and the first book in Tessa Candle's Parvenues & Paramours series.

London-hating dreamer, Lydia Norwood, has failed spectacularly as a débutante. Now an encoretante whose family has lost a fortune, Lydia discovers that the beau monde is hard on a nouveau riche social climber, particularly one who is no longer riche and only wants to climb trees.

Lydia must stave off the effrontery of rakes and conniving competitors long enough to make a good match, or else incur society's scorn by earning her own money. Falling for the unattainable Lord Aldley is a distraction she cannot afford. But they share such an enchanted history, how can her heart resist?

The tragically virtuous Earl of Aldley is tired of ambitious families hurling debutantes at his head, but cannot hide in France forever. He returns to London to seek out the mysterious tree-climbing girl who once saved him from a scheming chit, and finds more than he bargained for.

Abductions, seductions, trickery and injury all endanger Lydia, but Lord Aldley's heart is imperiled beyond rescue. He has only just found her; will he lose her forever to his enemy, his best friend, or his own dangerous mistake?

Three Abductions & An Earl by Tessa Candle is a rather fun historical romance. Ms. Candle has given us a well-written book filled with phenomenal characters. Lydia wanted to be left in peace in the country. Instead, she is forced to London to be a debutante. Aldley is an Earl trying to avoid the earl hungry debutantes and their mothers. Lydia and Aldley's story is loaded with action, suspense, sizzle and drama. My favorite thing about this book though is the way Ms. Candle has slipped the humor in where you don't expect it. I enjoyed reading Three Abductions & An Earl and look forward to reading more from Tessa Candle in the future. Three Abductions & An Earl is book 1 of the Parvenues and Paramours Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
