My brown-eyed Earl - Anna Bennett

William Ryder, Earl of Castleton, is at the end of his noble rope. Not only has he broken ties with his longtime mistress, his mother has publicly announced her wish for him to marry a suitable young lady―if only to help him raise the twins left in his care. Hiring a governess should solve some of Will’s problems…but when he meets the candidate in question, he finds himself in an entirely new predicament.

Miss Margaret Lacey is brainy, beautiful, and, once upon a time, Will’s betrothed. But she bowed out of the engagement―and, since then, has never been the same. A tragic accident robbed her of everything, and now, at age twenty-three, her marital prospects are slim to none. Penniless but not without pride, Meg convinces the vexingly handsome Will to hire her for the job. What neither of them could have expected from this arrangement, however, is an attraction that burns stronger than ever. Are these two lost souls finally ready to be schooled in the art of love? 

My thoughts:
A wilting wallflower meets an Earl and everyone lives happily ever after.

Meg lives with her uncle, they have no money, and he is believed to be mad. Therefore the wilting wallflower part. She is kind, looks after her sisters and wants to earn money for her family. And that is how one becomes a governess.


Will is an Earl who suddenly gets his cousin's twins to take care of.  I liked how he started to fall for her fast. And how he cared nothing for his matchmaker mum who thought she knew better.

They do their dance. She takes care of the twins, she likes them, she even starts to like Will (there is history).

Conclusion:
It was a nice romance, with some passion too. I do want to know what happens to her sisters too.

Anonymous said...

I like romances were the couple have a previous history - I think that makes their happily ever after more convincing.
