4.0 out of 5 stars lighthearted historical romantic romp 30 Mar. 2007
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Estella loves pranking people, but her latest effort proved the joke was on her as she crossed a line, which ends up with her married to Lord Seabrook, a prim and proper person she dislikes. Their wedding gifts are standard fare as no one in either family or their friends show any imagination; at least that is how the bride sees it with one exception. Someone gave Estella a training book on controlling unruly canines that she thinks with an ironic smile she can apply to Godolphon, her spouse.

Godolphon knows he could have prevented the marriage, but he sees his nuptials as a means to prove his new father-in-law is a smuggler. He has access to the house and plans to find the ledgers and then he will deal with his prankster wife. However, he failed to factor in one key ingredient in his otherwise perfect plan; he wonders if he can send to prison the father of the woman he loves.

THE UNTAMED EARL is a lighthearted historical romantic romp starring a unique lead female protagonist who should have been a card carrying road member of the merry pranksters instead of the Ton. Era aside, the canine manual will remind the audience of the Sandra Dee- Bobby Darin 1960s film If A Man Answers. Readers will enjoy the makeover of the hero more so from suspicious accidents than the dog book; Godolphon changes the objective from proving his in-law is a dangerous felon to keeping his beloved spouse safe. Taylor Jones provides a fun romantic romp with relatively late suspense adding to the enjoyable story line.

2.0 out of 5 stars Characters not really that sympathetic 27 Sept. 2008
By Melissa - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I forced myself to finish this book, as I like to complete something I start. I hoped the leads would get a clue but unfortunately, when they started to become more likable they would within a short time act selfishly or illogically and this would set them back on the likeability meter. What these two lack is a good deal of respect for each other and this comes across in most of their actions right from the beginning of the story.

Of the two leads, Estella is harder to admire than Godolphon, Earl of Seabrook. She plays a prank on him, writing him a note to meet her secretly and promising he can ravish her but also setting it up so her parents can catch them. They do see them and Estella is furious that she has to marry the man. How incredibly short sighted and childish? What was she expecting? To punish her husband she shuts him out of her room on the wedding night. The next day she gets a wedding gift from a woman on dog training but it is really how-to-train-a-man-to-obey-like-a-dog manual. I must say that this part of the story had me troubled the most, mainly because it seemed a bit degrading. If the situation was reversed and the story was a man training his wife via a dog manual it would never have been published because it is demeaning.

Godolphon never plans to sleep with his wife as he is hoping for an annulment. He married her only to get access to her father's books and warehouse because he believes her father is involved in smuggling which is hurting his villagers. Through eavesdropping, Estella discovers his plan to search her father's books and is intent on stopping him. She does this through seduction at one point. Her husband confronts her when he finds her snooping through his belongings and admits to her he is searching for incriminating evidence against her father.

Godolphon is brash and angry plus he cannot control himself around the beautiful Estella. He is duty bound to discover info about the smuggling operation. There are times he is incredibly short with his wife.

Estella uses the dog training book to get her husband to obey her. When that doesn't work, she uses some subterfuge and even ties him to a bed and threatens him with a pistol. I really had a hard time finding this scene romantic; again it just lacked a certain amount of respect

Even after these two declare their love they are obstinate and uncommunicative about feelings. The whole training manual while original, I did not find overly humorous when the reader takes into account that Godolphon has feelings and although I adore dogs, I believe that the adult male intellect is more complex than my golden retriever's.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars 1 April 2007
By AK - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Estella's great love of pranks backfires so that she finds herself married to the boring Godolphon, Earl of Seabrook. She is utterly miserable, for the marriage is not based at all on love. She simply found herself trapped and having to save face, while her husband married her to get access to information to help in his investsigation into a smuggling ring. However, one of their wedding gifts, a "dog training" manual, offers some hope in Estella's quest to turn her union around. Yet, there is danger all around, and someone is taking advantage of Estella's penchant to make her look bad. Can the mismatched pair find love, or will circumstances tear them apart?

*** This is an unusual story. Estella often seems vain and shallow, while Godolphon's hair-trigger temper combine to make this romance seem utterly unworkable. Somehow though, a certain charm comes through as the sum of the parts of this book proves to be greater than the individual facets. ***
