Curled Up With An Earl by Amy Rose Bennett


Curled Up With An Earl is the second book in the Byronic Book Club series by Amy Rose Bennett.  I felt this book took the momentum from the first book and built upon it, creating an even more enchanting second novel.  William Lockhart, the Earl of Kyle, is a covert agent for the crown, undercover, trying to catch a murderer.  Miss Lucy Bertram is a bookish spinster who is shy and tongue-tied around crowds and suitors.  When Will goes undercover in Lucy’s house, passion explodes, and intrigues abound.

Both Will and Lucy are complex, complicated, vivid characters.  The couple’s connection was instantaneous, and their sensuality was undeniable.  The antagonist and secondary characters had depth and focus.  This was a well-thought-out storyline with clever and imaginative writing.  I felt the story could have been shortened a bit in the middle of the book; however, I loved the intrigue, action, and passion in the final few chapters.

What I liked most about this book was how Will allowed Lucy to be herself.  With Will’s faith, support, and love for her, Lucy blossomed into an independent, confident woman who was not afraid of love.  This was a lovely story of self-discovery.  I enjoyed the first book; however I liked Curled Up With An Earl more.  Amy Rose Bennett creates the most organic, relatable characters and places them in vividly passionate and intriguingly romantic stories.  I fully recommend this book!

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