Publisher's Summary

Harrison Thornwick is the Heirs' Club's newest member. His carefree days as a reckless rogue carousing around London are suddenly behind him after the tragic death of his brother leaves him in charge of the family estate. What's more, the prince himself has offered to secure his marital prospects. Now Harrison has no choice but to grin and bear his noble fate - and the woman who's been chosen for him.
Miss Angelina Rule is a spectacular beauty, a dream match for any man. But she is fiercely independent - and full of passion - and is all set to rebel against her royal order of marriage...until she meets the devilishly charming Harrison. With him by her side, Angelina devises a scheme that will teach her meddlesome relatives a lesson once and for all. But little did she and Harrison expect to fall into a tempestuous attraction - and a powerful desire that neither of them can deny....
Contains mature themes.

What the Critics Say

"A judicious amount of dry wit and an abundance of simmering sexual tension add plenty of romantic zing to Grey's gracefully written second book in her Heirs' Club of Scoundrels series." (Booklist)

waste of time & money

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If anything was interesting this would have been a better story. It was very boring and the same internal dialogue over and over again. They have one kiss and the hero keeps referring to it.
All the things the h/h do seem faulse, as she never has a chaperone, which is out of place for this time.
I actually liked the man the heroine loves, so the hero seems a little cruel to try to steal a woman away from a wounded/scarred war hero.


What do you think your next listen will be?

not sure


Which scene was your favorite?

I didn't like the story enough to have a favorite scene.
The publisher note says it has mature content, but I could not find it. I think this was put there to try to market the book. It has very little contact between the h/h. There is more licking and stroking between the heroine and her dogs!


What character would you cut from The Earl Claims a Bride?

I don't think cutting characters can improve this book.
If it is anyone that is a little creepy is the heroine's father. He is basically selling his daughter because he has been so stupid to lose all his money and is in debt.


Any additional comments?

I read the reviews and they keep talking about how nice/funny this book was. I can't understand what they mean. There is nothing witty or charming about this story. Anyone that thinks this dialogue is clever banter has never read other regency authors i.e. Garwood, kleypas, balogh, hoyt, heath etc.
The author seems to add points that don't make any sense or move the plot forward. For example, the hero is the 4th son ( really that many) and all of them die so the hero has a title and wealth. I am not sure why the 2 oldest brothers had to be identified and then die without knowing anything about them. What does it bring to the story? If anything it shows how frivilous the hero is, as he learns nothing from all that death. He spends his time playing cards/womanizing/drinking and dueling. You would think after all of those deaths he would appreciate life and not want to waste it.
