The saucy Yvette de Maupassant is used to danger. She’s spent the last 10 years spying for England in Napoleon’s court. Now that her work has been discovered, she must hide, and what better place than the remote wooded estate of the Earl of Carrolton? Her friend Miss Thorn and that delightful cat Fortune place her in a position where she can pretend to be companion to the earl’s sickly mother. Yet one look at the earl has Yvette rethinking why she wants to stay.
Gregory, Earl of Carrolton, is used to power. So why does one moment in the company of his mother and spinster sister leave him feeling powerless? And why does the look in a certain Frenchwoman’s eyes leave him weak at the knees? As danger draws closer, Gregory and Yvette must work together to protect her, his family, and the future of England, as they discover the greatest danger and delight is falling in love.
This sweet, clean Regency romance is the sequel to Never Borrow a Baronet. Fortune’s Brides: Only a matchmaking cat can hunt true love.
Hott Review of Never Envy an Earl:
I didn’t love Yvette in Never Borrow a Baronet and I really disliked Gregory’s mother and sister. Yet, each of them wound their way into my heart in Never Envy an Earl. It also reminded me that God always brings out the best in us if we let Him.
Never Envy an Earl is a beautiful book with a sweet mystery and a bit of suspense and intrigue. It’s sweet enough to wind it’s way into the hearts of readers young and old. Plus, the suspense is clean enough for all who like a bit of mystery to enjoy.
I recommend reading Never Envy an Earl, but moreso I suggest reading this wonderful series!
