To Wed a Wicked Earl (Devine & Friends, #2) ¾ He's on the hunt for a bride Adam Faramond Earl of Rothbury needs to find a wife immediately or his beloved grandmother will leave him penniless But Adam an unrepentant rake would reform for only one woman the woman he's lusted after and loved for years It's rather unfortunate then that Miss Charlot To Wed A Wicked Earl picks up where book one At the Bride Hunt Ball ends immediately after Tristan Devine younger brother of Gabriel Duke of Wolverest has announced who he has chosen for his bride Charlotte Greene heartbroken at having not been the lucky young lady chosen to wed the man she has worshipped from afar for the last seven years is about to leave the ball when Adam Faramond Earl of Rothbury comes to her emotional rescue; offering support kind words and to dance the last dance with her she knows that he’s trying to make her feel better and to salvage what’s left of her dignity However she also knows that Adam has a reputation for being a womanizer and wants nothing to do with him which isn’t too difficult because Charlotte’s mother has forbidden her to be anywhere near Adam not wanting her daughter’s reputation sullied – guilt by association and all that such nonsense However some months after that night at The Bride Hunt Ball they have a rather funny chance encounter where they form an unusual friendship which ends up being the basis for this truly wonderful storyOnce again Olivia Parker has given us a book full of humor tender moments and passion Whereas I hadn’t given much thought to Charlotte Green in the first book in To Wed a Wicked Earl she’s become a truly loveable believable character with a depth of kindness about her which wasn’t apparent before The same is true of both Tristan who I thought was a cad and Rothbury who was a horrid cad But both turned out to be such incredible people who I couldn’t help but care about The bottom line This was another book that was a joy to read one I couldn't put down and was sorry when it ended If you're looking for something lighthearted yet not brainless I strongly recommend both At the Bride Hunt Ball and To Wed a Wicked Earl Olivia Parker has become an auto buy author for meLady Rosalind Devine Gabriel and Tristan’s sister will have her story told in the next book Guarding a Notorious Lady due out in August I believe and then I’m hoping – fingers crossed even – that Tristan’s book will be next because I have no doubt that he is not at all the man he appears to be mobi ✓ Devine & Friends ¸ Olivia Parker

Olivia Parker ¸ doc Te Greene would never consent to be the blushing bride of a rogue or so he thinks Charlotte believes that the earl the only man whose touch leaves her trembling would never want a woman like her Weary of her wallflower ways Charlotte decides that a friendship with the earl just might give her the ex I wanted to like this book Parts of Olivia Parker's storytelling have a sort Julia uinn feel I really enjoyed The Bride Hunt Ball Kind of uirky and fun but there's so much about her writing especially in this newest novel that takes away from the fun element and makes me just want to throw the book across the room if I didn't have an e reader I wouldFirst of all she shows the reader nothing and tells the reader everything For instance apparently the hero is scoundrel We are not led to believe this through his actions but by being told over and over and OVER again that he is a scoundrel That he comes from a long line of scoundrels Where is the scoundrel like behaviour from this hero though? There is none Just constant reflecting on the fact that this man is a scoundrelAlso apparently the heroine is a shy stuttering wallflower Does the author lead the reader into believing this through character interaction? NO We only know this through constant reflecting about the heroine by the hero and the heroine BUT there is no ACTUAL action that leads the reader to this conclusionSherry Thomas had a recent blog entry about character reflection She discusses that a romance author shouldn't spend too much time with the characters reflecting on events that occurred previously in the story We as the reader already read the actual events We do not need prolonged reflection It takes away from the story There is TOO MUCH REFLECTION in this novel It is almost as if the author really only had 100 pages worth of story and needed to fill 300 pages so she went back and reinacted the events over and over again in character reflection Or she assumed someone would pick up the book and skip the first few chapters so she would need to bring them up to speed on events so farIt's really annoyingAlso apparently the hero is already in love with the heroine before the story starts We never learn what it is about her that has him so in love with her We're just told that he loves her Why? Why does he love her? By skipping that very important element the reader loses all of that tension and expectation that is CENTRAL to a romance novelLastly there is NO REASON why he can't have her We're told the reason that he can't pursue her is because he's a SCOUNDREL and she would never believe someone like him could love someone like her But why not try? It doesn't make any sense If he actually loves her why give up on them before he even attempts to win her?And don't even get me started on the events that contrive to get these characters together I actually decided to stop reading when the hero decided he had to trick the heroine into pretending to be his fiancee for one night rather than asking her outright because she might say no and he couldn't risk it
