Not The Kind Of Earl You Marry by Kate Pembrooke


Not The Kind Of Earl You Marry is a decadent romance with passion and heart.  The plot unfolds effortlessly.  The story is written with love and care.  This is a fantastic start to a new series.

Miss Charlotte Hurst is a wallflower and a bluestocking, happy in her quiet life.  William Atherton, Earl of Norwood, is a politician with passion and is a darling of the ton.  These two couldn’t be more different and would probably have never met if a false engagement announcement hadn’t hit the papers.

I love both William and Charlotte’s characters.   William had integrity and fire.  Charlotte knew her mind and thought she had the reigns on her feelings.  These were rich, complicated characters brought to life effortlessly and beautifully.  The couple’s connection starts with a fight,  the passion igniting at the first encounter.   The couple were night and day different, yet complemented each other perfectly.  Their attraction was scorching. Their kisses melted the page.  The couple’s fragile journey to love is a beautiful thing to witness.

The plot grabbed my attention on page one.  The couple’s confrontation was a brilliant and perfect way to start the story.  There were enough politics to keep it interesting without getting boring.   The central theme is opposites can attract and complement each other.  The secondary characters were interesting, and I am looking forward to reading their stories.

Not The Kind Of Earl You Marry is the first book in The Unconventional Ladies Of Mayfair series.  It was a stunning start to a new series.  The plot had just the right amount of cantankerous characters and a riveting story.  The book is an excellent jumping-off point to a series that has the potential of being phenomenal.  

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
