An Earl Like You Reviews

  • Emily S.
    Apr 15, 2018

    This is just a really enjoyable, sweet Regency. Likeable main characters. No alpha male douchebaggery, believable conflicts. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up When I pick up a book by Caroline Linden, I know I?m going to be able to lose myself in a beautifully written character driven novel featuring fully-rounded characters with terrific chemistry, and a romance that evolves ...

    3.5 stars Is it a marriage of convenience if only one of the two parties is aware of it? Does that make it a marriage of inconvenience for her? Either way, this book from the very beginning outlines how Hugh, the husband-to-be, is basically forced into courting innocent Eliza by the...

    I would say this is a 4+ Star book for me. I really loved most of this book, but it seemed to lack some of the joy that many of her books feature. It can be trepidatious picking up a new release by a favorite author. What if it?s a disappointment? Because it always happens at some...

    It's official! Caroline Linden is my new favourite author. I started reading this book the moment I got my hands on it and only stopped to breathe when I had finished it! ...

    I've been a sucker for the Marriage of Convenience trope for years and years. It all started decades ago with Georgette Heyer's classic A CIVIL CONTRACT and several old Patricia Oliver Signet Regencies, in particular her LORD HARRY'S ANGEL. The trope is still popular and most prolific ...

    3.5/5. Hugh Devereux, the newly inherited earl of Hastings, has plenty of good looks but desperately lacks funds as his beloved and highly affable father had depleted the family's coffers with his careless spending. Not wanting to tarnish his sire's memory, he decides to keep their dir...

    This is a very easy book to read if you can overcome the hero wanting to protect everyone! Protectiveness is very nice, but sometimes you just have to have courage to wound someone for their own good. It's difficult, it's tough, it's painful, but I found it in this particulr case ve...

    I have a confession: I've already enjoyed this book TWICE. It is a sweet story with characters that got under my skin and stayed with me long after I finished reading. An Earl Like You opens inside of Hugh's head where he learns that his golden-boy father lost the family's inheritan...

    Series: The Wagers of Sin #2 Publication Date: 8/28/18 This is a wonderful addition to Linden?s ?The Wages of Sin? series. It is intelligently written, uniquely plotted and the characters are all well developed and relatable. We originally met the heroine in the first book of...

    Love Caroline Linden's writing and the way she tells a story. Unfortunately this was not the story for me. There was one bad event that stayed with me through the end (view spoiler)[their first intimate encounter was a coercion to make sure she married him. I didn't care for that at al...

    4.5 stars rounded up Hugh Deveraux, the new Earl of Hastings has a rude awakening after the death of his father, his wonderful father - who was loved and admired by one and all, the estate is bankrupt and there is no provision for his sister?s dowries or his mother?s widow?s p...

    A solid 3.5/5 stars. My first Caroline Linden, and I like her writing style. I'll be reading more by the author in the future I'm sure. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I appreciated that a heavily overused trope didn't have the same level of melodrama that I was wearily expecti...

    What a pleasant surprise this book was! After the tiny teasers of this couple in the first book, I knew that An Earl Like You would be a treat for me. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but I liked what Caroline Linden did with the book here. When Hugh discovers that his newly...

    Why is she blushing so much? Totally overkill. ...

    ?She was the wife he hadn?t wanted. She was the girl he?d been blackmailed into marrying. He had been forced to court her and seduce her, winning her love by pretending an affection he hadn?t felt, and the joke was on him. Now he was the one seduced...he was the one losing his ...

    I had a lot of trouble enjoying a book where the hero is a cowardly liar. Not Linden's best work in my opinion, plus everything seemed very pedestrian. This plot has been done way too many times and is distasteful no matter who's the author. ...

    Excellent The heroine is the daughter of a wealthy commoner, plain, good hearted, who loves her dog. The hero is an Earl who has inherited an overwhelming amount of debt and other than gambling has no other means to get out from under. Hugh enters into a deception with Eliza's fath...

    Not a lot of surprises in this book but a sweet story. The hero (an earl) is trying to do right by his family and the heroine loves her dog, her garden, and decorating, and is a genuinely nice person but not titled. Caroline Linden writes pretty mild romance without a lot of angst. ...

    Caroline Linden's An Earl Like You was an absolute delight. For a plot that could have been reprehensible (the hero marries the heroine under false pretences), Linden succeeds in making this an engaging and sweet romance. The hero, Hugh, is in desperate financial straights when the...

    It?s crazy, I really enjoyed this book, but when I?m thinking about a review I only come up with the things I didn?t like. This book had potential to be more than just a bodice-ripper. The class differences, the ostracism, the financial ruin...they were all tied up neatly in a bo...

    When a set up turns in to the real thing, how many people will pay for the set up? Hugh Deveraux, the newly appointed Earl of Hastings finds that his coffers are in need of replenishment. The sale of land not possible. The working of a job out of the question. What would a man of the t...

    This is the second book in The Wagers of Sin, if you liked the first book then you will like this one, for me this book was a definite page turner. Of all the characters in the book Eliza is the one I felt a connection with, she is so kind and has such a loving heart especially to h...

    Overview: I absolutely adored this book, and can't wait for the next in the series! Eliza was such a sweet and kind heroine, and I experienced SO MANY OF THE FEELS. I knew I would be in love once I read the synopsis, because the trope of marrying for money (impoverished lord/rich heire...

    Maybe I'm getting too old to relate to innocent, sheltered heroines. Eliza, in this story, is 21 or 22 years old, but she lives a completely sheltered, blameless life at her father's home and has practically no social life. She has no interests other than gardening, playing with her do...

    I quite enjoyed this story. I appreciated that it didn?t cross over into raunchy, but remained sweet (though also swoony). I thought the characters were well-written and very believable. They all showed the kind of growth I like to see in novels. Eliza?s kindness is something I asp...

    Book two in The Wages of Sin by Caroline is officially my favorite of all her books, and I have read them all. I absolutely love Eliza Cross. She is an amazing heroine with a heart of gold. Born as a commoner the daughter of a self-made man who is ruthless in his business dealings and ...

    Eliza Cross lost her mother and baby brother when she was three-years-old. From 8 to 19, her father sent her to Mrs. Upton's Academy for Young Ladies to teach her the things her mother would have and show her how to be a lady. Eliza have a big heart but is a little shy. She prefer the ...

    This is the second book in The Wagers of Sin, if you liked the first book then you will like this one, for me this book was a definite page turner. Of all the characters in the book Eliza is the one I felt a connection with, she is so kind and has such a loving heart especially to h...

    Overview: I absolutely adored this book, and can't wait for the next in the series! Eliza was such a sweet and kind heroine, and I experienced SO MANY OF THE FEELS. I knew I would be in love once I read the synopsis, because the trope of marrying for money (impoverished lord/rich heire...

    Maybe I'm getting too old to relate to innocent, sheltered heroines. Eliza, in this story, is 21 or 22 years old, but she lives a completely sheltered, blameless life at her father's home and has practically no social life. She has no interests other than gardening, playing with her do...

    I quite enjoyed this story. I appreciated that it didn?t cross over into raunchy, but remained sweet (though also swoony). I thought the characters were well-written and very believable. They all showed the kind of growth I like to see in novels. Eliza?s kindness is something I asp...

    Book two in The Wages of Sin by Caroline is officially my favorite of all her books, and I have read them all. I absolutely love Eliza Cross. She is an amazing heroine with a heart of gold. Born as a commoner the daughter of a self-made man who is ruthless in his business dealings and ...

    Eliza Cross lost her mother and baby brother when she was three-years-old. From 8 to 19, her father sent her to Mrs. Upton's Academy for Young Ladies to teach her the things her mother would have and show her how to be a lady. Eliza have a big heart but is a little shy. She prefer the ...

    I have read, and own, every book Caroline Linden has written, and they just get better and better. This book is the second one in the Wagers of Sin series and it?s wonderful! Hugh Deveraux, Earl of Hastings, is a good man who is trying to keep his mother and two sisters from lear...

    I enjoyed this one more than the first book, as expected. After the epilogue in Bk1 (Georgiana got a letter from Eliza saying that she's left her husband), I expected this story to be different. I thought we'd get estranged Eliza and Hugh, but instead we got the whole story (first ...

    3.5/5. Hugh Devereux, the newly inherited earl of Hastings, has plenty of good looks but desperately lacks funds as his beloved and highly affable father had depleted the family's coffers with his careless spending. Not wanting to tarnish his sire's memory, he decides to keep their dir...

    This is a very easy book to read if you can overcome the hero wanting to protect everyone! Protectiveness is very nice, but sometimes you just have to have courage to wound someone for their own good. It's difficult, it's tough, it's painful, but I found it in this particulr case ve...

    A solid 3.5/5 stars. My first Caroline Linden, and I like her writing style. I'll be reading more by the author in the future I'm sure. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I appreciated that a heavily overused trope didn't have the same level of melodrama that I was wearily expecti...

    Not a lot of surprises in this book but a sweet story. The hero (an earl) is trying to do right by his family and the heroine loves her dog, her garden, and decorating, and is a genuinely nice person but not titled. Caroline Linden writes pretty mild romance without a lot of angst. ...

    Caroline Linden's An Earl Like You was an absolute delight. For a plot that could have been reprehensible (the hero marries the heroine under false pretences), Linden succeeds in making this an engaging and sweet romance. The hero, Hugh, is in desperate financial straights when the...

    It?s crazy, I really enjoyed this book, but when I?m thinking about a review I only come up with the things I didn?t like. This book had potential to be more than just a bodice-ripper. The class differences, the ostracism, the financial ruin...they were all tied up neatly in a bo...

    This is the second book in The Wagers of Sin, if you liked the first book then you will like this one, for me this book was a definite page turner. Of all the characters in the book Eliza is the one I felt a connection with, she is so kind and has such a loving heart especially to h...

    Overview: I absolutely adored this book, and can't wait for the next in the series! Eliza was such a sweet and kind heroine, and I experienced SO MANY OF THE FEELS. I knew I would be in love once I read the synopsis, because the trope of marrying for money (impoverished lord/rich heire...

    Maybe I'm getting too old to relate to innocent, sheltered heroines. Eliza, in this story, is 21 or 22 years old, but she lives a completely sheltered, blameless life at her father's home and has practically no social life. She has no interests other than gardening, playing with her do...

    I quite enjoyed this story. I appreciated that it didn?t cross over into raunchy, but remained sweet (though also swoony). I thought the characters were well-written and very believable. They all showed the kind of growth I like to see in novels. Eliza?s kindness is something I asp...

    Book two in The Wages of Sin by Caroline is officially my favorite of all her books, and I have read them all. I absolutely love Eliza Cross. She is an amazing heroine with a heart of gold. Born as a commoner the daughter of a self-made man who is ruthless in his business dealings and ...

    I had a lot of trouble enjoying a book where the hero is a cowardly liar. Not Linden's best work in my opinion, plus everything seemed very pedestrian. This plot has been done way too many times and is distasteful no matter who's the author. ...

    This is just a really enjoyable, sweet Regency. Likeable main characters. No alpha male douchebaggery, believable conflicts. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up When I pick up a book by Caroline Linden, I know I?m going to be able to lose myself in a beautifully written character driven novel featuring fully-rounded characters with terrific chemistry, and a romance that evolves ...

    3.5 stars Is it a marriage of convenience if only one of the two parties is aware of it? Does that make it a marriage of inconvenience for her? Either way, this book from the very beginning outlines how Hugh, the husband-to-be, is basically forced into courting innocent Eliza by the...

    I would say this is a 4+ Star book for me. I really loved most of this book, but it seemed to lack some of the joy that many of her books feature. It can be trepidatious picking up a new release by a favorite author. What if it?s a disappointment? Because it always happens at some...

    It's official! Caroline Linden is my new favourite author. I started reading this book the moment I got my hands on it and only stopped to breathe when I had finished it! ...

    I've been a sucker for the Marriage of Convenience trope for years and years. It all started decades ago with Georgette Heyer's classic A CIVIL CONTRACT and several old Patricia Oliver Signet Regencies, in particular her LORD HARRY'S ANGEL. The trope is still popular and most prolific ...

    3.5/5. Hugh Devereux, the newly inherited earl of Hastings, has plenty of good looks but desperately lacks funds as his beloved and highly affable father had depleted the family's coffers with his careless spending. Not wanting to tarnish his sire's memory, he decides to keep their dir...

    This is a very easy book to read if you can overcome the hero wanting to protect everyone! Protectiveness is very nice, but sometimes you just have to have courage to wound someone for their own good. It's difficult, it's tough, it's painful, but I found it in this particulr case ve...

    I have a confession: I've already enjoyed this book TWICE. It is a sweet story with characters that got under my skin and stayed with me long after I finished reading. An Earl Like You opens inside of Hugh's head where he learns that his golden-boy father lost the family's inheritan...

    Series: The Wagers of Sin #2 Publication Date: 8/28/18 This is a wonderful addition to Linden?s ?The Wages of Sin? series. It is intelligently written, uniquely plotted and the characters are all well developed and relatable. We originally met the heroine in the first book of...

    Love Caroline Linden's writing and the way she tells a story. Unfortunately this was not the story for me. There was one bad event that stayed with me through the end (view spoiler)[their first intimate encounter was a coercion to make sure she married him. I didn't care for that at al...

    A solid 3.5/5 stars. My first Caroline Linden, and I like her writing style. I'll be reading more by the author in the future I'm sure. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I appreciated that a heavily overused trope didn't have the same level of melodrama that I was wearily expecti...

    What a pleasant surprise this book was! After the tiny teasers of this couple in the first book, I knew that An Earl Like You would be a treat for me. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but I liked what Caroline Linden did with the book here. When Hugh discovers that his newly...

    Not a lot of surprises in this book but a sweet story. The hero (an earl) is trying to do right by his family and the heroine loves her dog, her garden, and decorating, and is a genuinely nice person but not titled. Caroline Linden writes pretty mild romance without a lot of angst. ...

    Caroline Linden's An Earl Like You was an absolute delight. For a plot that could have been reprehensible (the hero marries the heroine under false pretences), Linden succeeds in making this an engaging and sweet romance. The hero, Hugh, is in desperate financial straights when the...

    It?s crazy, I really enjoyed this book, but when I?m thinking about a review I only come up with the things I didn?t like. This book had potential to be more than just a bodice-ripper. The class differences, the ostracism, the financial ruin...they were all tied up neatly in a bo...

    When a set up turns in to the real thing, how many people will pay for the set up? Hugh Deveraux, the newly appointed Earl of Hastings finds that his coffers are in need of replenishment. The sale of land not possible. The working of a job out of the question. What would a man of the t...

    This is the second book in The Wagers of Sin, if you liked the first book then you will like this one, for me this book was a definite page turner. Of all the characters in the book Eliza is the one I felt a connection with, she is so kind and has such a loving heart especially to h...

    Overview: I absolutely adored this book, and can't wait for the next in the series! Eliza was such a sweet and kind heroine, and I experienced SO MANY OF THE FEELS. I knew I would be in love once I read the synopsis, because the trope of marrying for money (impoverished lord/rich heire...

    Maybe I'm getting too old to relate to innocent, sheltered heroines. Eliza, in this story, is 21 or 22 years old, but she lives a completely sheltered, blameless life at her father's home and has practically no social life. She has no interests other than gardening, playing with her do...

    I quite enjoyed this story. I appreciated that it didn?t cross over into raunchy, but remained sweet (though also swoony). I thought the characters were well-written and very believable. They all showed the kind of growth I like to see in novels. Eliza?s kindness is something I asp...

    Book two in The Wages of Sin by Caroline is officially my favorite of all her books, and I have read them all. I absolutely love Eliza Cross. She is an amazing heroine with a heart of gold. Born as a commoner the daughter of a self-made man who is ruthless in his business dealings and ...

    Eliza Cross lost her mother and baby brother when she was three-years-old. From 8 to 19, her father sent her to Mrs. Upton's Academy for Young Ladies to teach her the things her mother would have and show her how to be a lady. Eliza have a big heart but is a little shy. She prefer the ...

    I have read, and own, every book Caroline Linden has written, and they just get better and better. This book is the second one in the Wagers of Sin series and it?s wonderful! Hugh Deveraux, Earl of Hastings, is a good man who is trying to keep his mother and two sisters from lear...
