Intentions of the Earl

Intentions of the Earl by Rose Gordon

I received a free copy of the ebook from Barnes & Noble in a Free Fridays promotion.

My review:

Hard-up nobleman sets his sights on wooing a girl in order to cure his financial woes. The twist in this story is that the earl isn't after the lady's dowry; he needs a payoff from a friend who has an unexplained interest in seeing the family's reputation shredded.

An easy, entertaining read, Intentions will pass for neither great romance nor accurate historical portrayal, but those in an undemanding mood will enjoy this light regency romp. Circumstances and explanations are often contrived, but forgiving readers won't mind.

Stars: 3

Despite the cover art, the sex is milder than most "scandalous" romances. It's hardly a bodice-ripper, though there are some scenes with some spice.
