Publisher's Summary

Eva Leigh's irresistible new series introduces the Wicked Quills of London: a group of bold, brilliant female writers whose spirited allure is beyond seductive....
Eleanor Hawke loves a good scandal. And readers of her successful gossip rag live for the exploits of her favorite subject: Daniel Balfour, the notorious earl of Ashford. So when the earl himself marches into her office and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades.... What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake?
Daniel has secrets, and if The Hawk's Eye gets wind of them, a man's life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves? But Daniel never expected the sharp mind and biting wit of the beautiful writer, and their desire for each other threatens even his best-laid plans.
But when Eleanor learns the truth of his deception, Daniel will do anything to prove a romance between a commoner and an earl could really last forever.

Great start to a new series

What a great start to this new series! Very enjoyable.

Eleanor is a great heroine. A woman with a career who isn't afraid to buck the tide. Her sparring with the Earl is fun. The mystery in the story gives another dimension to the romance. Quite good. The secondary characters have depth on their own and I hope we read more about them in subsequent books.

A few minor glitches in an otherwise good book - I found some annoying repetitions. If they were done for emphasis it didn't work for me. Also, there were many words mispronounced on the audiobook. I know that's not the author's fault but it does detract from the book overall.

I look forward to the rest of this series.

It's really a shame...

What disappointed you about Forever Your Earl?

It was a good story, but the narration killed it.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Forever Your Earl?

The declarations of love.


What didn’t you like about Carmen Rose’s performance?

I think she tried really hard, but just could not avoid sounding stilted. The worst parts were the narrative sections, where the phasing and the intonations were so stiff and awkward that it was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. I kept listening, thinking that she would loosen up and get more natural as she got into the book more, but it didn't happen. It's such a shame because it colored the whole experience, negatively.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story was interesting, although the heroine was so modern in her sensibilities that it seemed unrealistic, but still.... it was of interest.


Any additional comments?

If this book and this series is to have a chance, it needs to be re-released with a really good and spunky narration.
