The Earl's Betrothal by Karen Tuft, Blog Tour & Giveaway!
Out of the war and into another, Captain Lord Anthony Hargreaves finds the politics of romance to be as uninviting a battle as the one that nearly cost him his life in Badajoz, Spain.
Wounded both mentally and physically from the Peninsular War in 1812, Anthony returns home to find that his older brother has died, placing Anthony next in line to inherit the estate. But he’s not ready for such responsibilities. And when Anthony’s dying father pleads with him to marry and produce an heir to preserve the family title, it nearly sends Anthony over the edge; nevertheless he dutifully faces a long line of hopeful young ladies who await him. No one grabs his attention, though, like Amelia Clarke, his mother’s stunning companion, who is off-limits for the earl. But when Anthony unwittingly puts Amelia in a compromising situation, he dedicates himself to protecting her reputation.
But the horrors Anthony faced while away from home have left him feeling broken and tormented. And Anthony finds himself drawn to Miss Clarke, the only one who can chase away his demons, but he must overcome the hostility of a society driven by class, a jealous duke bent on revenge, and himself—for could Amelia ever really love a haunted man?
I could not seem to read this book fast enough! It just grabbed me from the get-go and never let my interest go! I am a new reader to Tuft and now I will be reading all future books from her! I loved both Anthony and Amelia. Each had their own problems to overcome, each doubted their self-worth and each had to learn to accept themselves. I really loved the drama, the gossiping ton, the danger, the drama and the love story! A must-read regency novel, The Earl's Betrothal will keep you reading until the very last page!
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon!
