From the series guaranteed to “win the hearts of Regency fans” comes a story of secret identities, unlikely love, and forbidden romances that will warm even the coldest of hearts (Publishers Weekly).
While most young ladies attend balls and hunt for husbands, Ophelia Hardwick has spent the last ten years masquerading as a man. As the land steward for the Earl of Carlyle, she’s found safety from the uncle determined to kill her and freedoms a lady could only dream of. Ophelia’s situation would be perfect—if only she wasn’t hopelessly attracted to her employer.
Calvin, Earl of Carlyle, is determined to see his sister married this season. And he’ll do it with the help of his trusted right-hand man. But when he finds out his man is a woman, and that her life is in danger, his priorities change. Their attraction is passionate, all-consuming, and if they aren’t careful, it could turn downright deadly—for both of them.
West End Earl by Bethany Bennett is a fabulous read. It has plenty of humor, feisty women, demanding men, and so much romance! I loved it. The heroine is a young red-haired tall beauty who has fooled an Earl for the longest time. That was until she became injured and he went about exploring her personal items. The truth was out of the bag. However, before that they were the best of buddies. The earl thought she was a he the whole time. A much younger male who was smart, funny, and mysterious yet stubborn as hell. It can also be said about the hero. Danger, scandals, and risks are abundant in this hilarious yet fascinating tale. I could not get enough of this action-packed historical romance! Women in this story have a way of driving one man super crazy. One woman happens to be his sister whom ever man wants to take advantage of and the other is the woman of his heart. Only he nor she knows that they are way over their heads and hearts. Heartfelt and engaging banters from the protagonists make this a fun read. I would have to say Bethany Bennett has a way with words. Her fictional worlds are vivid, well-written, and three-dimensional. Both the characters and dialogue made this a must have book. Simply swoon worthy and delightful-I recommend it to all readers.
