Earl’s Choice, the continuation of the Regency Royals, enriches the series. I strongly recommend reading these novels in order. Earl’s Choice takes place in the same timeline as To Protect A Princess. So much so that, at times, it seemed repetitive. With that being said, this was a beautiful, angsty romance.
Thomas and Sasha are in an impossible situation. They instantly fall in love, but their desires conflict with their position. In some ways, both Thomas and Sasha are tragic figures, suppressed by societal expectations. The couple’s yearning is poignant. This novel is an angsty, emotional read. Both sensual and passionate, this book focuses more on the characters and their development. My favorite scene is one of Thomas and Sasha holding hands; this scene was the most erotic, sensual, fiery scene in the book. The plot moved well, and the dialogue and character development were superb. The book is more of a slow burn than the first book. I fell in love with both Thomas and Sasha. I was fully invested in the characters and their romance.
Earl’s Choice is the second book in the Regency Royals series. This romance mesmerized me. My heart ached for the couple at times; there were other occasions where the joy was hauntingly beautiful. I enjoyed Thomas and Sasha’s story; I can’t wait to read Remy’s story next. Jess Michaels has again created a fantastic, steamy, romantic journey I didn’t want to end!
