But not cutesy! I disagree with the reviewers who say neither character got over their previous 'loves'. Totally untrue. Both situations were appropriately resolved and did not reflect into the outcome other than exactly how they should have.
This book is no literary masterpiece, it's a regency era romance novel! And you get EXACTLY what you should!!!!!
But you also get the pleasure of hearing Barrie Kreinik perform it!
Stream yes, sex, not really. It's not perfectly clean but it's not full of vulgarity either.
Creditworthy? I vote yes.
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?
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.
