Yet again, Annabelle Anders has crafted a beautiful, enchanting love story. Educated By The Earl checks all the boxes for a lovingly written, character-driven novel. This is a tale of two strangers forced together that forge a partnership that leads to sizzling attraction.
This plot had numerous delicate, intricate layers that created organic, vivid characters that captured my heart. Both Piers and Victoria have troubled pasts, and both have sworn off love; but their forceful, vibrant personalities resonated with me. The couple’s chemistry grows and flourishes throughout, which focuses solely on the two main characters for a good part of the book. This forced proximity fosters an inclusive, intimate, sensual feel.
The personal growth of each main character is enormous, and the couple’s self-reflections add to the story’s validity. The individual development of Piers and Victoria enables the couple to connect on a more visceral, passionate level. At times, the couple’s struggles are heartbreaking, yet the undeniable love that blooms is outstanding.
Educated By The Earl is the second book in Miss Primm’s Secret School For Budding Bluestockings. This series follows a headmistress and several instructors at a girl’s finishing school. This novel had all the qualities of an fascinating, well-developed, oh-so-romantic read! The writing was exquisite; my heart raced just by describing the character’s looks or gestures. Always a fan of Annabelle Anders, she has outdone herself, creating a magical world of passion and romance that will leave the reader craving more!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
