Review ~ The Unexpected Earl by Philippa Jane Keyworth

Published September 20th 2014 by Madison Street Publishing

About the Book 
Six years after being jilted without a word of explanation, Julia Rotherham finds Lucius Wolversley standing before her once again--unexpected, unannounced, unwelcome. With her heart still hurting and, more importantly, her pride, Julia must chaperone her younger sister, fend off fortune hunters, orchestrate a fake engagement, and halt an elopement--all whilst keeping the man who jilted her at arm's length. But what Julia doesn't know is that this time, the Earl has no intention of disappearing, and this time, he has more than an explanation to offer....

My Review
Keyworth has written an entertaining tale with antics and absurdness reminiscent of typical Regencies.

If you are up for a romp around Regency England, you will be pleased to meet Julia Rotherham and her sisters. There are outbursts of temper, plenty of sharp wit, and a bit of ridiculousness.

Lucius Wolversly is your typical tall, dark, handsome and brooding Earl. Having girls thrust upon him for protection has him quite addled to begin with but he soon learns how to handle the situation.

For a sophomore novel, it kept me engaged. Regency is my favorite era but this fell short of being 4 stars. It's a solid 3 stars because of the writing even though it has alcohol use and mild cursing.

I received a copy from the publisher for review purposes only. No compensation has been received.
