Series: Prelude to a Kiss #2
Published by Signet Genres: Historical
Sophie’s older sister has eloped for true love. However, this presents a quandary for ever-positive Sophie: marry in haste or face a life alone with a damaged reputation. Setting her sights on the man she thinks she can love, Sophie embarks upon her journey to HEA.
John “Evan” Fairfax, Earl of Evansleigh, has no idea that Sophie has matrimony plans for him. He never intended to lead Sophie on, and issues in his family prevent him from promising a HEA to any woman let alone Sophie. Soon one thing leads to another and despite his best intentions, it appears that they may have to give up their dreams of a HEA, unless fate can intervene.
The Earl I Adore was a nice entry into the romance genre. Sophie and Evan were likable characters who took the time to actually spend some time together in The Earl I Adore. However, I found the beginning quite tedious and couldn’t really get into the story. Discovering Evan’s secret felt anticlimactic, but I was glad that things could work out for them.
