Audio Review: The Earl claims a bride - Amelia Grey

Harrison Thornwick is the Heirs' Club's newest member. His carefree days as a reckless rogue
carousing around London are suddenly behind him after the tragic death of his brother leaves him in charge of the family estate. What's more, the Prince himself has offered to secure his marital prospects. Now Harrison has no choice but to grin and bear his noble fate-and the woman who's been chosen for him. Miss Angelina Rule is a spectacular beauty, a dream match for any man. But she is fiercely independent-and full of passion-and is all set to rebel against her royal order of marriage . . . until she meets the devilishly charming Harrison. With him by her side, Angelina devises a scheme that will teach her meddlesome relatives a lesson, once and for all. But little did she and Harrison expect to fall into a tempestuous attraction-and a powerful desire that neither of them can deny . . . 


My thoughts:
This one, well honestly it was tricky. See the Earl, Harrison gets told by the king he has to marry. Ok nothing strange there, it's the olden times after all. And he is lucky and the woman in question is pretty and he falls for her. So nothing strange there.

BUT, see Angelina is in love with someone else. Ok, no problem, I am sure Harrison can win her over. But, see the man in question loves her back. Wait, that is weird right. I thought this was a romance. Harrison is the odd man out.

So while reading I kept thinking about that. Harrison could not back away, he had to marry her. And she starts to have feelings for Harrison. Oh this triangle is getting tricky. There is one thing that saved it for me. She fell for the man when she was 16 and said she would wait for him until he gets back (India, he was a soldier) and he was like 20 years older. That was truly what saved it for me. Sheesh man, she is way too young. He was all I will wait until you are older, no man. You already lost me, and her love was obviously a crush.

Ok so that was half my review talking about that. But it was strange you know. I do not know if I ever have come across a situation like this...

About the characters. Angelina likes to rescue things and her dad gambles too much (therefore she must marry).  Harrison used to be a scoundrel but is now an Earl and he steps up. And the last person in this triangle, Maxwell, oh I never liked him. He was all my scars! He had ptsd too (not that that is bad), and he really should find someone older.

A romance you wish for but it scared will not happen.

Narrator: Barrie Kreinik
I liked her voices. But I must say just as men do women voices "strange" so do women do men. Obviously. But it still works.
The chapters just flew away.

  7. I like what she's wearing

    PTSD is tricky and there's no shame in admitting if you're not the best support system for a person going through something like PTSD.

  8. Yeah, it may be a tricky triangle, but I think the scenario was already setting up for one of the choices to be more obvious. Glad it worked out.

  12. Usually someone likes a persob but that person does not love back. Not the case here

  13. Huh... I like your description, but it would be hard to get past that a bit.

    When I first read the title I thought it was "The Earl Claims to be a Bride" HAHAHAHA
