I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.
Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.
The Thirteenth Earl was an intriguing Historical Romance by one of my new favorite authors, Evelyn Pryce. Filled with well-developed realistic characters and a quick moving plot sure to capture any reader’s attention, this was not your typical Victorian romance.
‘Cassandra forced him to imagine a future, because he could not conceive of her existing and not being his.’
I’ve come to enjoy historical stories revolving around house parties that take place in country estate manors like this one. It’s almost like a soap opera with the characters all concentrated in one location, seeing what scandal will unfold. I had fun getting to know Thaxton, Spencer, Cassandra and Eliza, plus the other guests who made this a well-rounded group. Plus, the mystery surrounding a potential ghost added an element of mysticism that isn’t a very common theme found in the genre.
