Taming Her Forbidden Earl by Catherine Hemmerling + Featured Freebie

Taming Her Forbidden Earl
Everyone knows William Bredon, the earl of Pembroke, has a reputation as a captivating rogue, determined to never marry until his duty to produce an heir requires it. So when he invites Lady Hannah Rochester to dance, Hannah vows to keep her distance. But the undeniably gorgeous William, with his dark humor and seductive gaze, draws her in nonetheless.

Of course, Lady Hannah is not completely what she seems, either. A member of the dowager Lady Lancaster’s Garden Society, she secretly spends her days solving mysteries and uncovering intrigues, and when she brings William into the fold, a sinister plot develops that brings the two closer together. William’s protective nature ensures he remains by Hannah’s side, but he will not surrender his anti-marriage stance.

Can intrigue, passion, and maybe even a little bit of scandal reform the most notorious of rakes?

My Rating: 5/5

Ooh, this book was SO adorable-I loved it! Taming Her Forbidden Earl was a sweet, delightful historical romance...
I LOVE the premise of this book-and the series as a whole. The idea of a group of skilled ladies who work to help the needy and solve mysteries is so fun and unique among historical romances, so I had high expectations. And this book didn't disappoint.

Hannah was a lovely heroine. She was strong and very clever-she had to be since she was in a mystery solving society. Throughout the entire conflict, which posed danger to her specifically above the others, she stayed strong and kept working to fix the problem. She was a truly admirable heroine. 

William was so adorable! He was just amazing. His father was abusive toward him and his mother, so he hadn't had the easiest past. And he's been avoiding marriage because of his fear that he will become like his father when he gets married. Hence, the anti-marriage attitude. But, besides that, William was a perfect hero. He was sweet, strong, clever, and protective over the woman he loved. It won't take long for you to fall in in love with him as much as Hannah did :)

Their relationship was SO sweet. They were adorable together. Besides the anti-marriage sentiment of William's, their relationship was fairly straightforward. Both of them fell slowly in love and, when they both realized it, nothing was going to stop them from being together. There was a bit of spicy in their relationship, but it was only a little, not the basis of it.

The plot was fast-paced and interesting the entire way through. Though there weren't any outstanding surprises, the plot wasn't predictable. And the ending was perfectly sweet.

Taming Her Forbidden Earl is a fantastic historical romance. Any lover of the genre should give it a try.
So, are you up for it?
