Product Description

Product Description

The second book in a back-to-back publication in the “superbly entertaining” (Booklist) new Regency historical series from New York Times bestselling author Julia London.  

Tobin Scott, otherwise known as Count Eberlin of Denmark, has returned to Hadley Green, the site of his father’s hanging for thievery fifteen years ago. He has but one goal in mind, and that is to avenge his father, who he believes was innocent of stealing the Countess of Ashwood jewels. Now a wealthy man, Tobin intends to exact his revenge by destroying the Ashwood estate and the Countess of Ashwood, who as a young girl testified against his father.  

Lily Boudine has become the Countess of Ashwood through a very surprising twist of fate. She is even more surprised when a vaguely familiar looking man calls and tells her he is Tobin Scott, whom she knew as a boy, and that he intends to destroy her or Ashwood. He leaves the choice to her. Because so many people depend on Ashwood, Lily chooses herself, thinking that she can hold him at bay long enough to remove Ashwood from his clutches. But as they play the game of seduction, and she slowly discovers that he is not the cold, heartless man he would like to present to her, she also believes that Tobin is right—his father did not steal the jewels. And if she can find them, she can help restore his family’s honor—but not before she discovers another shocking secret.

About the Author

Julia London is the bestselling author of THE DANGERS OF DECEIVING A VISCOUNT, THE PERILS OF PURSUING A PRINCE, THE HAZARDS OF HUNTING A DUKE and 11 other romantic novels. She lives in Texas.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stretches credulity too far 19 Nov 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read many romances set in this era and this is possibly the worst I have ever came across. There are so many historical inaccuracies, it is a joke. The story is confused and too many incidental characters. I gave up in the end

1.0 out of 5 stars Can I get my money back? 26 Feb 2012
By jhinva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I tried hard to like this book. I've liked Julia London's books in the past, and looked forward to this one. Now, I just deeply regret spending $7.99 on this. I'll warn that there are plot spoilers below, but I'm not sure there is much of a plot to spoil.

The book reads more like an outline that was never finished. The sample chapter is OK.. which will lull you into buying he book. From there, the plot becomes a confused mess. The characters can't seem to remember whehter they like each other or not from one scene to the next. The "hero" became an arms dealer to gain wealth and a title to exact revenge on either the "heroine", who wronged him when she was 8 years old, or an entire town. It was never entirely clear which. The townspeople revere him and revile him.. depending on which chapter you're reading. The "heronine" seemed like a nice character, but had few friends because her cousin had previously pretended to be her.

I've been a fan of romance for over 20 years and rarely have I given up on a book. I gave up on this one about 70% through.

2.0 out of 5 stars A confused and frustrating narrative that is mildly entertaining read. 14 Mar 2012
By Rumana Faruque - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I must say that I am highly confused by all the 5 star ratings this novel has received. As an avid devourer of the historical genre, the plots are all pretty much the same, especially with the strictures of 1800's London as a backdrop, so I shan't do a recap of that.

Having not read the previous book in the series, I feel I was just plopped into the middle of a story that was largely begun elsewhere. As another reviewer noted, the beginning and end of the story feel like an outline that was never really flushed out. It felt as if heavy cutting and reorganizing of scenes had taken place with no thought to continuity. For instance, the hero gives the heroine a dress to wear to a ball. For a few chapters, she is insulted by the dress because of all the implications the "gift" implies but then she happily dons it for the ball with really no introspection along the way of what made her change her mind. So off to the ball she goes where nary a mention is made from the hero about her wearing the gown but then several chapters later when the heroine wears it again, he makes mention of it as if it's the first time he's ever seen her wear it.

As others have commented, the characters can't remember if they love or hate each other from scene to scene. Often the hero and heroine soften on one page but then revert right back to the premise as if the previous chapter or scene had never taken place at all.

The story has no satisfactory resolution. It feels as if the author was told to turn in what she had and then tack on a few paragraphs in overview of how the story would end if more time had been given. It actually ends with a whole other subplot that comes out of left field in the last few chapters.

The few times a year I spring to buy a new release, I rely heavily on the amazon rating. To have this particular novel with a 4 out 5 stars is just insulting. Do not waste your time here!

1.0 out of 5 stars I swear I read this before 12 Mar 2012
By Loris Gies - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read the first book in this series and so much of this story was in the first book that I felt cheated in this one--to the point I stopped reading it and won't finish it.

I will probably read the last book in the series when it is released but this one was a total waste of my time. I am pretty disappointed because I truly like this author's other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable Regency romance 21 Feb 2012
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1792 in Hadley Green, eight year old Lily Boudine's testimony led to the hanging of a man for stealing the jewels of her aunt and guardian, the Countess of Ashwood (see The Year of Living Scandalously). Tobin Scott witnessed his father's execution for a crime he did not commit. To keep young Lily safe she is sent to live with family in Ireland.

Fifteen years later, Lily inherits the Ashwood title. She finds her estate in terrible condition. Wealthy Tobin as Count Eberlin informs the Countess she has a choice between saving the people of Ashwood and saving herself. She agrees to a tryst to save her people. However he never expected to betray his own quest when he is attracted to the female who hung his dad. On the one hand she feels the same way but also has guilt weighing her down as Lily begins to thinks she condemned an innocent man to the gallows. As they fall in love, they seek the truth of what happened fifteen years ago.

The second Secret of Hadley Green Regency romance is an enjoyable tale as beloved enemies investigate the cold case. Fast-paced, fans will enjoy Tobin's revelation that "revenge is a dish best served cold" (except for the Count of Monte Crisco and Emily Van Camp) as he finds Lily nothing like the frozen bi*ch he expected; especially with her remorse over what she realizes she did. Readers will appreciate this entry and look forward to more secrets revealed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 6 Mar 2012
By Sarah Sandiego - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a Julia London fan, I was disappointed in "The Revenge of Lord Eberlin." On the positive side, the imagery was effective; I could see the setting clearly in my mind. On the other hand, the plot was convoluted to the point of being frustrating. Despite the considerable length, the main characters were not developed clearly enough for me to have any significant affection for them. The shameless segueway to the next novel would have been acceptable if the resolution were satisfying; it was not. Rather than feeling refreshed, I feel vaguely unsettled. I wil not be wasting my time with any new offerings from Ms. London.
Thank heaven I purchase bookd in duets; Julie Anne Long's "How the Marquess was Won" is delightful!
