What disappointed you about Earl of My Heart?
Nothing made sense. It was a case of "insta-love". After 1 waltz the hero was in love. Every time they met , it was either them apoligizing or the hero making the heroine cry. They insult each other and the heroine doesn't want to get married ( always the case). It was so difficult caring or understanding the h/h. I gave up after 4 hours. The dialogue was boring and the story was nothing new.
Has Earl of My Heart turned you off from other books in this genre?
Yes. It's just a lot of nonsense , without a new twist on a story that has been done before and by much better authors. I will re-read a book by Hoyt, Baloug, Garwood etc . They are much better than what has been coming out in the past 6 months in this genre.
Would you be willing to try another one of Hugh Bradley’s performances?
I don't think so. The dialogue was so boring that it is difficult to tell if it's the narrator or that he just had nothing to work with. I do think that the hero is very volatile and the over-dramatic reading makes it seem more so.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Earl of My Heart?
I think the balloon ride , which could have been great, was a disaster. It didn't make sense. I re-played it , as I thought I missed something, but it made me hate the scene even more. I just could not understand why the hero got so mad. And then the internal dialogue had him saying that he wanted to throttle the heroine and throw her over the side of the balloon. That means he wanted to kill her. Not sure how romantic that makes the scene. Nothing like imagining the dead body of the main female character to put you off a romance.
Any additional comments?
A very poorly written book. There was an interesting premise, as the older sister was very mean and spoilt. She wanted the hero and that could have set up tension, if I could have cared about the heroine. there was no character development. I was expected to like the main characters without them exhibiting any redeaming qualities. At half way through the story I just could not care enough to go on. Maybe it gets better, but the first half of the book is a waste of time and I don't want to continue .
