Enticing The Earl is the second book in the When The Wallflowers Were Wicked series by Daphne Quinn. I was instantly captivated by Ensnaring The Duke, and Enticing The Earl moved the bar of excellence higher.
Juliet is a wallflower trying hard to appease her parents by gaining a perfect marriage to compensate for her twin’s scandal. Juliet is clumsy and shy. I loved Juliet’s kindness; she showcased an inner strength combined with her inner beauty. Juliet was an elegant lady that showed brightly even when she couldn’t see it.
Owen prides himself on being a successful, independent Earl. Owen sees no reason to marry soon. His world is turned upside down when he meets Juliet. Her sharp wit and clumsiness endear Owen, and he thinks marriage might not be so bad after all.
I loved the back-and-forth banter between Owen and Juliet. The development of their romance was engaging, and I was glued to the page. The plot was eye-catching. The characters were flawed and beautiful, giving an organic flow to the novel. I instantly enjoyed Daphne Quinn when I read Ensnaring The Duke, and Enticing The Earl solidified her place in my favorite authors list. Daphne Quinn weaves an engrossing, poetic romance that captured my heart on the first page!
