My Rating: 5 Roses

Loved this romance! An out of the ordinary heroine, a super sweet hero, and danger from a greedy madman. Put those together, and we have this wonderful book. Enticing the Earl was a lovely historical romance.

Mia was not your usual historical romance heroine. For one thing, she's a healer. For another, she's taken lovers and doesn't try to hide it. She's somewhat cynical and proud. And, I really liked her. I thought she was great. She was a strong character. Not only for being so unapologetic about who she is, but also to deal with her crazy ex-lover. She was a lovely character.

Simon was SO sweet! I just adored him. He's been in love with Mia for years, so when the chance comes to marry her, he jumps on it, even though he should be looking for an heiress to solve his monetary woes. I loved how devoted he was to Mia. He couldn't care less if  she wasn't technically respectable. He was just so adorable and I truly wonderful hero.

The romance was brilliantly done. A perfect blend of sweet and spicy. It was sweet how Simon had loved Mia for so long and how Mia came to love Simon. And, the chemistry between these two? Very hot. I loved them together.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. The constant threat of Mia's ex-lover, turned thief kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the story and the ending was fantastic.

Enticing the Earl was a lovely historical romance. I completely and totally loved it! Romance lovers, if you're looking for something awesome, then you have to read this book!

Today, I have a New Adult romance that sounds great: The Ghost and The Graveyard by Genevieve Jack. Go forth and get it for free!

Grateful Knight isn't looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At twenty-two, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs.

But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can't keep her hands off him.

When things in Grateful's house start moving on their own, another man enters her life, Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn't what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.

One thing's for sure, magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they're converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she's forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.
