I really liked this story of forbidden romance and passion. I thought the story was well developed despite its length. The characters are likeable; I admired Paget for thinking of herself, so often in books the characters are forever falling onto their swords and giving up their happiness for the sake of others, it is all very admirable but these characters need to think of themselves to and finally we have a character that does that without coming across as selfish.
Jamie is Darcey like; he is quite cold, quite restrained and finds the wait or propriety and earldom heavy. He wants to be left alone and can be surly, but behind the exterior there is a softness to him that it endearing. I loved the chemistry between the characters and the steamy scenes were very good.
The Earl in my Bed suffers in the same areas where most novellas do. The end is a rush and at complete odds with the rest of the book which builds at a nice pace. Quickly wrapped up endings seem to be a plague where novellas are concerned. Apart from that I enjoyed this and would have loved it to have been a full length novel. My interest in this series and in Sophie Jordan as a romance writer has been gained.
A good plot and characters, but as with short stories it does not delve too deeply. I found it a little boring too. But I had to purchase it as I keep ALL Sophie Jordan's work, and very much prefer her earlier romances.
no story line at all. I won't even put this in the charity shop the only thing it's good for is recycling. This may sound harsh. But even romance fans need a well written book and a good story line with people they can relate to.
Paget has always expected to marry her childhood friend, Owen, but recently she's realised that she couldn't marry Owen because she doesn't feel 'that' way about him. She wants passion and love from her marriage, not just friendship. When she bumps into Jamie, Owen's brother, the chemistry between them is electric. At first, she struggles with this because she's never liked Jamie, but she starts to see underneath his gruff exterior to the real Jamie.
Jamie begrudged Paget when they were children, because she was lively and close friends with his brothers, Owen and Brand. He felt left out as a child, and developed a cold and surly exterior. When they meet as adults, Jamie can't deny his strong attraction to Paget, and an irrepressible need to have her for himself. Of course, this battles with his guilt at leaving Owen in war-torn India.
The characters were both really well-developed for a novella. The whole story was well-paced, until the end, where the ending felt a little rushed.
I loved that the characters took the opportunity they had for love, and didn't let themselves give in to feelings of guilt and duty. Their chemistry was fab, and the romance was believable and passionate.
I really enjoyed this novella, and it's whetted my appetite for the other books in this series. I'm really looking forward to reading Owen's story as well!
