Lady Caroline has one mission in mind, helping her mother maintain their estates after her father's death, while knights posing as the earl's men continue to kill their livestock. But as soon as her mother wishes the earl's intervention, Caroline has a new problem - the earl is intrigued with her and wants her to reside at his castle and serve his mother. Caroline refuses, but as the raids on her family's lands turn more deadly, Lord John Talbot forces the issue.
Caroline continues to attempt to uncover who is behind the raids, and with her unnatural ability to remember details, she intends to see justice done. The lady may be his undoing, but the earl decides she is the one for him and no other will do, if only he can keep her safe from the danger that follows her every move until he can wed her.
If you could sum up Lady Caroline and the Egotistical Earl in three words, what would they be?

Any additional comments?
Lady Caroline is investigating the crimes against her mother’s lands. But a pesky Earl is trying to keep her from doing so by requesting her presence at every chance he could. Was he involved in these crimes or did he have other things on his mind. Without a father, Caroline also keeps her family’s books and tends to other tasks needed. She didn’t have time to waste on a man who changes women every time the wind changes direction.
Earl Lord John Talbot is intrigued by Lady Caroline and he can’t seem to spend enough time with her. She is unlike any other Lady he’d met. But her insistence on catching the men involved in livestock slaughters on her land made him worry for her safety.
I don’t normally read historical romance but I loved this story. Not only is there romance but also a mystery.
Lady Caroline was entertaining and Lord Talbot was totally hot. The story and mystery kept me guessing.
If you like historical and sweet romance with suspense and mystery then you will enjoy this story.
