An Earl to Enchant by Amelia Grey

AN EARL TO ENCHANT
By Amelia Grey

About The Book
HE’S DETERMINED NOT TO BE A HERO . . .
Lord Morgandale is as notorious as he is dashing, and he’s determined no woman will tie him down. But from the moment Arianna Sweet appears on his doorstep, exhausted after a grueling journey, he cannot resist the lure of the fascinating beauty, her exotic wardrobe, or tempting green eyes . . .
SHE HAS A DEADLY SECRET . . .
Arianna Sweet never imagined the significance of her father’s research until after his untimely death. Now she is in possession of his groundbreaking discovery, a discovery that someone would kill for. She can’t tell Lord Morgandale her secret, but she knows she needs his help, desperately.

About The Author:
Amelia Grey (aka Gloria Dale Skinner) grew up in a small town in the Florida Panhandle. She has been happily married to her high school sweetheart for over twenty-five years. She has lived in Alabama, Connecticut, New Hampshire and now lives in Florida.

Amelia has won the coveted Romantic Times award for Love and Laughter, the prestigious Maggie award for best historical and Affaire de Coeur's best American historical award. She has been a finalist for the Golden Heart and the Holt Medallion awards which are given by Romance Writers of America and numerous other awards. Her books have been sold to many countries in Europe, Russia and China.

Amelia likes flowers, candlelight, sweet smiles, gentle laughter and sunshine. 

My Thoughts:
All writers would love to hook their readers in the first few pages of their story. Writers of historical romance want a reader to fall in love with the era, the hero, and to identify with the heroine. Well, guess what? I did all three. This is not my first Amelia Grey story, but I now count An Earl to Enchant as my favorite of her books.

The author sets a most embarrassing and humors beginning to this story, both for our hero, Lord Morgandale, and our heroine, Arianna Sweet. These two people come together by chance and circumstance, and are as different as vinegar and sugar.

There is a little touch of the exotic, since Arianna grew up in India and still retains her love of many of that countries customs. Couple that with a pinch of suspense, wonderful pacing, great dialogue, and this Historical Romance equals a very good read.
