Earl Interrupted by Amanda Forester
Series: Daring Marriages #2
Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Historical
Captain Robert Ashton, Earl of Darington, knows finding a bride in London will not be easy―not since he has been notoriously dubbed as the "Pirate Earl". What he didn't expect was to get abducted―and to have his escape go horribly awry when an innocent lady gets caught in the crossfire.
Amateur physician Emma St. James is on her way to meet her betrothed when she is rescued by an injured gentleman. Despite her shock after discovering he is the Pirate Earl, Emma feels drawn to the man who saved her life. Duty forces them apart, but when they meet again on the high seas, Darington will risk all―his fortune, his name, and even his life to keep her safe.
Emma St. James is about to come into her majority which means she will gain her inheritance. Unfortunately, Emma’s Step-mother and Step-brother don’t want to turn over the reigns of her fortune. They’re willing to do anything, including sending Emma to an asylum to keep from doing it.
Privateer Dare “Lord of Darlington” is famous for his exploits on the high seas. After his recent haul, Dare realizes it’s time to find a wife. Unfortunately, he must go to London to do that. Upon arriving in London Dare’s sister is kidnapped and he is wounded. Thankfully, a beautiful stranger comes to his rescue. The woman affects him more than any before.
Danger lurks everywhere. Emma and Dare must lean on each other to remain alive.
Dare and Emma have one hell of an adventure in Earl Interrupted. I liked the action in Earl Interrupted. It came quickly and kept the story rolling. I felt for the characters immediately. Emma and Dare’s situation is dire. They have excellent chemistry my only problem was the romance moved at a slow rate. I kept waiting for more conversation and less introspection. I loved parts of Earl Interrupted but it’s a little too slow to form the romance for me.
