Earls Prize Curves is the first book in the Lords Love Curves series by Jemma Frost. This is a quick, delicious little romance with lovable characters and a sexy, sensual plot. Miss Clara Netherfield has been a nursemaid for her parents her entire life. Hugh, the Earl of Covington, is immediately attracted to the much younger Clara. When Hugh devises a plan to introduce Clara to passion, she readily agrees, but neither can fathom that this physical desire could turn into something much more.
To me, Clara was a tragic figure. Clara is practically a servant in her home. Clara craves affection and is a sensual woman. Clara takes what she wants, knowing it might be the only joy she’ll ever have. My heart broke for the emotionally lonely woman. But Clara has an iron will and inner strength that makes her irresistible to Hugh.
Hugh knows better than to encourage this attraction to a woman half his age. Hugh falls under Clara’s spell and discovers it isn’t easy to forget her. Hugh is physically attracted to Clara, but it was his tenderness and affection toward Clara that stole my heart.
The sensual connection between Hugh and Clara was incredible. This is a short, easy-to-read book with an eye-catching plot. I loved that Clara was a “curvy” girl, and I also enjoyed the age gap. I devoured this wonderfully enchanting, sparkling romance. I love this new direction Jemma Frost is taking in the Lords Loves Curves series! This is a fantastic, quick read for a rainy afternoon. Hugh and Clara’s May/December romance was engaging, sexy, and fun!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through BookSprout. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
