4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
This is the third in a series of Regency romances involving members of the "Inferno Club" which pretends to be a dissolute drinking and wenching club for aristocratic rakes but this is actually the cover for a secret order of noble spies who are working to defend King and Country.

The series to date consists of:

1) "My Wicked Marquess: Inferno Club Book 1"
2) "My Dangerous Duke (Inferno Club)"
3) This book, "My Irresistible Earl"
4) "My Dark Prince: Inferno Club: Book 4"
5) "My Scandalous Viscount (The Inferno Club)"

Part of the Order's time is spent fighting open threats, e.g. Napoleon, but much of the ongoing story concerns their fight against another secret organisation called the "Promethians," a ruthless international campaign with an idealistic vision to remake world society but which uses murderous methods to try to achieve it.

The main action of the story begins in 1814: as the hero, who is the "Irresistible earl" of the title, meets for the first time in a decade the woman who he had loved and lost when he was a very young man and she was a teenager. He was unable to marry her because he was about to take up a dangerous, secret posting abroad during the Napoleonic wars. Thinking herself deserted, our heroine married instead a worthless aristocrat.

The whole Inferno Club series is boring and "My Irresistible Earl" is even more boring than the previous one. Totally dislike the heroine, characterless being. The only bit interesting is the "Drake" story. Read the older Gaelen Foley books, give this series a miss. Totally waste of my time. Over 300 hundred pages of boredom.

By S. Shamma on 25 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
There is a lot that could've gone right for Galen Foley in this novel, but a lot that went wrong instead. As one reviewer put it, the story has all the right ingredients, but the combination that Foley decided to put them in didn't work too well.

For one thing, I admit I did enjoy reading about Jordan and Mara, as they are both very likeable characters. Jordan is the type of hero that you rarely see starring in those novels, and it was refreshing. Mara could've been a lot more dramatic and annoying and unreasonable given the circumstances and events, but thankfully, Foley decided not to put her in that role, making her seem a very strong, confident and appealing character.

There were many secondary characters who were given prominent roles in this novel. It seemed like Foley was preparing us for her next novels - Drake is the obvious one, but I suspect she might still have something up her sleeve for Beau. A lot has been revealed in this novel about the kind of work that the Order is involved in, and things are starting to escalate as Foley is tying up all the loose ends here and there.

The plot and the characters are very interesting, but I really believe that Foley could've done so much more with it than she currently has. I have been an avid fan of her books since her Ascension and Knight Miscellany series came out, and I thought "My Wicked Marquess" was such a great kick-off to this series that I had really high expectations, and maybe that's why I'm not as satisfied.

Finally, I feel like in this book, the focus was mostly on the Order and their events and tying up all their loose ends a lot more than it did on the actual romance between Jordan and Mara.

Each book is better than the last and My Irresistible Earl is the best so far (but then Jordan is my favourite so far!). Like the others it's full of peril, love and romance with a good historical background. It also weaves in the next story effortlessly which leave you feeling excited and eager. I love the series and any wait to read the next one!

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Leanne A. Lingwood on 16 May 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
My summary of the book - After 12 years apart Jordan is back and hasn't forgot about Mara the one he lost when he was sent off to work for The Order. Now still working for the Order Jordan meets Mara and all the feelings are back but he needs her to help finish his mission. Soon all the old feelings come back and the pair can have what they missed but the Order's mission needs finishing first which could very well endanger Mara and her family.

Thoughts on the characters - Jordan has never stopped having feelings for Mara but he had to put the Order first and protect her from his life but when he meets her again his seductive rakish ways come out when he is around her. He tries to keep control and stay on track when trying to sort out his mission and isn't happy that he has to use Mara's connections to help with that. He loves her and would do anything for her and you sense he wishes his life was easier so he could have her and not have to lie to protect her from the evil he is fighting.
Mara has managed to live her life without Jordan so when he comes back it is a shock to her and makes her start to wonder what would have happened if they had the life they wanted if she waited. She lets him back in her life and soon falls in love with him again but she feels there is something off with him and when she finds out she is hurt but must protect her family. Showing a strong woman who would do anything to protect her family including betraying the ones that mean the world to her.

Thoughts on the writing style - Very well written which keeps you gripped and it is easy to follow so you know what is happening and don't get lost.

Overall thoughts - I have loved this series involving the members of the Inferno Club and can't wait to read more as this one leaves you begging for more and you want to find out what is going to happen next in the fight against evil.
