Only an Earl Will Do


The reigning queen of London society, Lady Elizabeth Worthingham, has her future set out for her. Marry well, and marry without love. An easy promise to make and one she owed her family after her near ruinous past that threatened them all. And the rakish scoundrel Henry Andrews, Earl of Muir who’s inability to act a gentleman when she needed one most would one day pay for his treachery.

Returning to England after three years abroad, Henry is determined to make the only woman who captured his heart his wife. But the icy reception he receives from Elizabeth is colder than his home in the Scottish highlands. As past hurts surface and deception runs as thick as blood, so too does a love that will overcome all obstacles, unless a nameless foe, determined with his own path, gets his way and their love never sees the light of day…


This is one of those book which draw you in right from the beginning and you simple can't help but fall in love with the story. Lady Elizabeth and Henry both are interesting characters. And they fit together perfectly. It is a must read historical romance which I'd recommend to all those who enjoy historical fiction.

Henry left for America in search of his Uncle and a fortune to save his estate. He wants to be rich before he proposes to Lady Elizabeth. He doesn't want her money to save him. It is important to him and he thinks that Elizabeth understands. But apparently she couldn't wait to get married. It took her only a short time to find herself a groom. Now that Henry is back he has no idea how to deal with this new situation. On one hand he still loves her but on the other hand he feels betrayed....

Elizabeth cannot believe that Henry still wants to be reacquainted after the way he had treated her in the past. Leaving her behind and refusing to marry her. She hates him and doesn't feel like forgiving him any time soon...

But the more they talked the more is revealed. They have both been played. There is someone else who has wronged them both. Henry is determined to find out who because no matter how hard he tries he still loves her and wants her to forgive him so that they can be together again...

What he doesn't know is one secret she is keeping from him. That one secret might ruin any chance they have to be together, for good. Right now he is trying to redeem himself but when the truth unravels will he be able to forgive her?

It's an intriguing story about romance, betrayal. and second chance love. I found it quite entertaining and hope that other readers do too.
Happy reading! :)

Elizabeth hid a repulsed shudder over Lord Riddledale, who stood pompous and proud across the floor, the ever-present scowl on his face no surprise. No doubt her stepping out with another gentleman other than himself had put him out of countenance. She turned back to her sister. “I cannot summon any remorse for annoying Riddledale. As for Lord Dean, I’ll be sorry to hurt him, but no, I will not marry him no matter how much his heart breaks over my decision.”
“Could your feelings change in time, do you believe?” Victoria asked.
Elizabeth shook her head. “No.”
She swallowed the familiar lump which formed in her throat every time she thought of him, the man she refused to name, even in her own thoughts. “I’m not the loving kind. I don’t believe it’s healthy to rely on such feeble unstable emotions when someone is entering the marriage state. Men and their need to be adored, looked up to in awe, can go hang. Lord Newland’s name protects me now. I have no need to marry again.”
Victoria threw her a dubious look. “I believe there is nothing purer and good than love, especially if you are fortunate enough to have it in a marriage.” Her sister sighed, the sound tinged with sadness. “You promised Papa you would try.”
“I am well aware of what I promised Papa, but he did not stipulate marriage is what I should try. I’m friendly and affable. That is enough.”
