Book 296: In the Arms of an Earl

In the Arms of an Earl, by Anna Small, Wild Rose Press, 2013.

I am not a fan of historical romance novels. I am, however a big fan of Jane Austen's work. Clearly, I do not consider Jane Austen's work romance novels. 

This book was very much like reading Jane Austen, only with the added elements of sensuality and deceit thrown in. It actually works very well. 

The characters were well-developed, with clear voices and points of view, and even with a few human flaws. Those who deceived had motive, and those who were deceived had confidence issues.
