Review: An Unwilling Earl by Sharon Cullen

An Unwilling Earl

Synopsis

Jacob Ashland’s life has taken an unexpected turn. He’s now the Earl of Ashland and expected to marry. But he’s done that before and had his heart ripped from his chest. When Charlotte shows up at his door needing protection, he offers to marry her––in name-only.

Charlotte, an orphan, suspects her sinister cousin of terrorizing London. When her maid disappears, she fears for her own life and runs away. Lord Ashland offers marriage, and it’s the perfect solution. But it isn’t long before she finds herself falling for her new husband.

Unfortunately, he won’t allow himself to love anyone ever again. And she knows her dark secret could destroy everything.

Review


This novel is perfection, I loved the story, I adored the characters and everything else about this book is amazing. It is well-written, I really enjoyed both the romance and the mystery side of the story. Although it was a little predictable still I loved it!
Jacob is comfortable in his life. He is used to being alone and lives a certain way. But now his life is going to change because of some unexpected events. He is getting used to his new life when Charlotte enters into it and turned things upside down. She is a stubborn woman who is clearly in need of his help. She might accept it but only on her own terms.
Charlotte never thought that she would be lucky enough to find someone who cares about her. She is running away from her past with little hope for the future. She only knows one thing; she must leave England if she wants to live because there is no way she can fight this evil on her own. Jacob wants to help her but she is too proud to accept it. Maybe if things were different and they were in love it might have worked but they were not. So, there was no reason for her to rely on Jacob so much.
They both have past demons and that just helps them get closer to each other. They know loneliness and that has helped them to be there for each other... Ultimately, they are perfect together. Now, only if they could stay that way forever...
I really enjoyed reading this historical fiction and would recommend it to all my friends. I think this is a must read for historical romance fans who love strong characters.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.

Excerpt

Slipping down the stairs, she hoped she did not run into anybody between her room and Jade’s. She didn’t think she could stand any comments from her mother about her choice of sleeping attire. Another thing she felt thankful for was the location of the room they would be sleeping in. Thankfully, they were on a different floor and at opposite end of the house from where the rest of the family slept.
She hesitated at the door. Her nerves were on edge and her body was tingling, readying itself for his possession. Already, her breasts were swelling and both nipples were as hard as rocks. She couldn’t wait to be in his arms again. Taking the doorknob in her hand, she held it for a moment and then slowly opened the door. When she entered the room, Jade waited, already in the bed. Leaning back against the headboard, propped up by two or three soft pillows, he looked like a dream. With no shirt on, the soft light of the lamp accentuated his broad shoulders and golden skin. After finding out he had a Cherokee grandparent, the color and smoothness of his skin made sense. He held the covers back and patted the mattress in invitation.
Crossing to the bed, she removed her robe and swiftly crawled under the covers. He eased down in the bed and turned on his side and facing her. “You are so beautiful, Arabella.”
She lowered her eyes, unable to breathe if she continued to share his gaze. His eyes were looking into her very soul. “No, you are beautiful, Jade. I have never known anyone who makes me feel the way you do.”
“How many men am I competing with, sweetheart?” he asked in a soft, gentle tone.
“What do you mean?”
“How many men are you dating? I’m sure there is a whole slew of them just beating your door down, all wanting the privilege of your company.”
“There is no one.” Now that the truth would be revealed, he probably wouldn’t be as interested in her.
“No one?”
“I’m sorry, Jade. I don’t have very much experience with men.” Her voice shook slightly and she closed her eyes waiting for his reaction. How could she tell him the local boys had all been afraid of her, or at least afraid of the ridicule they would endure by dating the town witch?
Light, soft, sweet kisses began raining on her eyes and her cheeks. “Why are you sorry, Bella? Don’t you know how exciting it is for a man to find out his woman hasn’t known many other men?”
“Not exactly what I meant,” Arabella stammered. God, this was hard.
“Quit worrying, Arabella,” Jade assured her. “The other men are history. You’re here with me now.”
“No, Jade.” She grabbed the hand caressing her neck and lightly playing over the top of her full breasts. He wasn’t making this easy. “The only man I have ever made love to is you—in our dreams.” She waited for his reaction. What if he didn’t want a twenty-four year-old virgin?

* * * *

The next second, he pulled her to him and wrapped both arms securely around her. “You are the sweetest thing. Don’t you understand how this makes me feel? To find out the sexiest, most responsive, most luscious woman I have ever known has never felt the touch of another man? You are mine! You belong to me!” Jade kissed her deeply. His tongue mated with hers. The taste of her lips intoxicated him. He could feel his erection growing stronger and stronger and he wanted to shout for joy! He’d prayed he would regain the full use of his manhood, but he had enough sense to know there were thousands of nerve endings, which all had to work perfectly between his brain and his penis. Last night, when he had lain with Arabella, the brain had been willing but the flesh had been weak. Now, there was absolutely no doubt. He had a raging hard-on. He tore his mouth from hers and laid his head on her shoulder. He had to slow down or he would come and their lovemaking session would be over faster than he wanted.
The doctor had also cautioned him about overusing his back. He’d said the movements and stress of penetration were not wise as of yet. He’d told Jade to wait and see if he could even have an erection, before they crossed the next bridge. Well, that particular question had been answered.
Arabella misinterpreted his change of pace. She pulled back slightly. “Did I do something wrong?” she whispered.
“Baby, oh baby—everything about you is just right. I want you so badly. The doctor said I had to take it slow, but I am about to burst. I’ll be all right in a moment.” His breathing sounded harsh.
“May I, Jade?” Arabella pressed on his shoulder until he laid down flat. “I may not kiss you just right, but I’d like to try.”
He groaned in anticipation. She nipped his shoulder lightly and softly. She spread a light trail of hot kisses over his pectoral muscles, and then down the sculpted washboard of his abs, which were trembling and jerking with the knowledge of what was to come. Arabella pushed the covers down to his knees. He wore nothing underneath and his erection stood tall and engorged—straight as an arrow and vibrating with the sheer fervor of his carnal appetite.
“You are magnificent!” she whispered. With trembling hesitancy, she wrapped one small, warm hand around his thick shaft, as far as she could reach. God, it felt good! Jade thought he would explode before she even got started. Her hair brushed his loins and the anticipation of her lips on his sex was driving him mad. He refused to rush her, but the wait for her lips caused every fiber of his body to stand at complete attention. Ah, she lowered her head and her mouth touched him. He almost levitated off the bed with the pure pleasure of the feel of her lips and tongue on his body.

Review: Twice Claimed (Crowned And Claimed #2) by Betty Shreffler

Twice Claimed

Synopsis

As a newly crowned Queen, I've been chased from my home, forced to turn to an unfamiliar man for protection. In my world, we thrive on what you have to offer, and in order to save my home, I must give myself to a King in exchange for victory.

I promised I would make the necessary sacrifices to end the tyranny forced on my territory, but to give my heart, and lose the man who owns it, is the one thing capable of breaking me. When the choice is stolen from me, my only option is to follow through with a marriage alliance or lose the ones I love.

With tragedy striking from every attempt to win the war, I turn to the one who swore to protect me. With his love, I find a new source of freedom, and tip the scales in my favor. So I believed...

Review

This book is amazing! It starts right from where the last one ended and the thrilling story continues, just as entertaining as book one was. I really enjoyed reading more about Fiora and Matheas. Some new characters are introduced and they are no less interesting. All in all, it is an adventurous and thrilling read, full of romantic heat.

Fiora and Matheas have managed to run away before they could be captured by King Belore. They are going to the Free Territories and plan to strike back from there. All Fi wants is to save her home and her people and no matter what she will make sure of that. The Kind Ryker of Free Territories is a reasonable man and he agrees to help them in exchange for a price, of course.

Ryker has never met a woman like Fiona before. He respects her like a Queen and admires her as a woman. Too bad her heart belongs to another man. Perhaps there is still hope for him because she definitely responds to his touches.

Fiora is distraught at the loss of her mother and wants to know more about her family's safety. From the very beginning, this book is an emotional rollercoaster. Too much happens too fats and it will keep the readers on their toes, wanting more and never getting enough. I quite enjoyed it and would recommend it to all readers.

Although, it is a very sad story somehow the author has also made is fun and passionate tale of love and loss. I can't wait to read what happens in the next book. This series has been going quite well and I have high hopes for book three. ;)
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
