Forever Your Earl by Eva Leigh (Review)
A strong independent heroine who ends up on an adventure with a rake would be the simplest of explanation to Forever Your Earl. However, it is more than that. Forever Your Earl is a story about an Earl who is looking for his best friend and has decided to put himself out there to hide the fact he's looking for his friend. So, we meet Daniel Balfour, the Earl of Ashford. He's loyal, charming, witty, and a rake. Basically, he goes to the Hawke Eye to offer an exclusive adventure with a rake, but Daniel doesn't know how to take it when he finds out the owner is a female. Changes everything.
Now Eleanor Hawke is an intelligent woman who is business savvy and will do almost anything to sell her paper. She decides to take Daniel's offer, but not fully trusting him. Come on his an aristocrat and she's plebeian (had to use the word cause it's found in the book quite a bit). Anyway.
At first, Forever Your Earl is a little slow to start with, but starts to pick up speed when Daniel and Eleanor start their adventure. Their adventures are a lot of fun. We follow along their journeys through gaming hells, phaeton races (reminds me of late night drag races), masquerades, and the Vauxhall. While they are doing all this engaging in verbal foreplay. They are equally match when it comes to spoken word that you seem to forget that she's of a lower class. A beautiful story with witty banter and adventures. So, if you are in the mood for rakes and intelligent heroines, you might settle down with Forever Your Earl. I for one can't wait to see what happens to Eleanor's friend in the next book.
