I have to admit. I didn't even give it my minimum 50 pages. I just knew right from the start that I didn't wan't to know the story. I know I made some assumptions that could have been wrong, but I really didn't like the writer's style. It seemed that I was back in the sixth grade reading a book for a book report.

I loved the 2nd book in Landing a Lord series. This is the Earl of Kerrick and Catherine Evans the sister in law of the Marquess of Overlea story.. We meet the 17 year old Catherine and the 28 year old Kerrick in book 1 of the series. Kerrick has an immediate attraction to the young Catherine, and he tries to only have sisterly feelings toward her. Overlea is one of his best friends and he is fond of Louisa Overlea's wife and Catherine's sister.

Kerrick is a agent for the Crown and has one more m

***I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

Somebody recommended this author to be so I was very happy when I got a copy from NetGalley. Unfortunately, this book was quite disappointing. Let's start the writing. I don't know much about it, but I do know that it's a matter of showing instead of telling. Unfortunately, Medeiros did a lot of telling and forgot about the showing. This meant that the characters didn't have any depth whatsoever. I never got a feel for the pe

An overall sweet read, Beguiling the Earl was a good romance. It wasn't particularly amazing, but it was a nice book that I enjoyed.

Catherine was a great heroine. She was level-headed and made sure know all the facts before judging. She was very likable and a wonderful character.

Kerrick was good. He was sweet and a true gentlemen at heart. He wasn't the most memorable hero, but he was likable.

The romance was good. Catherine and Kerrick already has feelings for each other and they simply has to
It was BOOORIIING and irritating. I struggled to finish it but skimmed it over after Chapter 10.

It was apparent that the Earl of Kerrick's taste on women was very, very low. Catherine Evans was a selfish, annoying brat! The earl must have pedophilic tendencies to fall in love with a woman-child like Catherine.

I am so disappointed with this novel. It was such a pity because I enjoyed the first book, Loving the Marquess (Nicholas and Louisa's love story). I really hope that the next book will be b

Historical romances are one of my favorite genre's and Suzanna does the genre great justice. I loved blue stocking Catherine's personality and Kerrick was just delish. Together, the chemistry sizzled and made for a wonderful story. The brother's best friend trope does not get old for me with characters like Kerrick. The writer kept me engaged and interested. I cannot wait to read more regarding the supporting characters, his original "intended" and his friend in particular.

I like this trope, so I really wanted to love this book, but sadly, I couldn't get into it. I stopped at Chapter 4. The writing is very bland. Something is missing, I didn't know what. The story just couldn't pull me in. I got it that they're attracted to each other, but it's just lust in my opinion.

The author also included characters from previous novels, showing that they were live happily ever after. Why many authors love doing this? People back then were supposed to be reserved about showin

Louisa's sister, Catherine, and Nicholas' friend, Kerrick, get their happily ever after. Medeiros infuses her characters with personality and depth, which is revealed through their thoughts and feelings. I like that she clearly gives them complex thoughts and feelings without assuming the reader's knowledge and familiarity with all the characters. Not any easy thing to accomplish without getting verbose. I enjoyed reading this romance and look forward to Rose and Brantford's story in the next bo ...more

Beguiling the Earl

Ms Medeiros has done an excellent job of getting all the ingredients for a great book together and presenting them. A love story with lots of twists and turns that keeps you interested and wanting to get the right couples matched. Definitely a series that's intriguing and has you wanting the next episode right away.

Fabulous next in the series

I am enjoying this series even though I read it slightly out of order (book 1 and then book 0 and now book 2). I love seeing characters from earlier stories to see what is going on. This one had a nice twist not usually seen for Kerrick and Catherine. I look forward to Rose's story next.

Part of the Landing a Lord series, it can be read as a standalone. I found this book enchanting and enjoyable. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and the ones before it too. Beguiling the Earl is delicious and wonderful. Secrets that can tear a country apart are being sold to the enemy, and it’s up to Kerrick to find a traitor, but when his heart lies with another, how much is he willing to give up for the country he has sworn to protect?

Beguiling the Earl is the second book in the Landing a Lord series , being I had not read the fist I was concerned I may find myself a bit lost but the author does a good job of providing character backround to bring you up to date and keep the story flowing, so reading this is as standalone is not an issue.

Catherine Evans our heroine,is a level headed , smart young debutant who has a crush on her brother in laws best freind; Lord Kerrick. Catherine knows he is the perfect man for her and she i

I read the first book in this series, Loving the Marquess, and really enjoyed it. I was pleased to receive a copy of Beguiling the Earl from the author. Kerrick was a great hero. He was honorable and in a hard place due to a debt he owes to a fellow spy. Just when he was ready to court Catherine in earnest, he has to pretend to court another woman.

Catherine wasn't all that pleased with the arrangement, either! Especially since she really likes Rose, who is her competition to everyone looking in
Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy.

Suzanna Medieros continues her Landing A Lord Series with a wonderful second book. Using an intricate balance of devilish desire and misinformation she leads us on a tempestuous dance, where we cheer for the hero, worry with the heroine and actually like the woman who comes between them.

Catherine Evans may be young but she is no silly miss. She is part of the ton but has lived in gentile poverty most of her life. Beautiful in a qu
