Review: This Earl of Mine by Kate Bateman

This Earl of Mine by Kate Bateman
St. Martin’s 2019

This was my very first Kate Bateman book! Will definitely be reading more from her.

I picked up a few wiffs of some old school historical romance elements in this book and that was pretty fun. For example, Georgie runs off to Newgate to pick a condemned man to marry on order to avoid her terrible cousin’s advances. Is that way OVER THE TOP? Well, yeah. But sometimes that’s a lot of fun. This was consistent throughout the book. Classic romance drama that we all dig so hard.

I thought Georgie and Ben had good chemistry…they had some amusing, witty interactions and that was entertaining. There were a few moments when I wanted the plot to move a little faster but overall this is a solid historical romance. Dependent upon your reading mood, I think lots of you will enjoy this one.

Thank you St Martins for the chance to read an early copy! I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
