just ok

First book was better. This was more of an adventure story than a romance. Very little intimacy and Daniel being so ridiculously priggish was a bit irritating.

Dora the Explorer for adults.

At first I was pumped to read this book because the first one was well written. Half way through, I began to loose my steam.
It seemed like the author plugged in a wacky happening every 30 pages or so, overall the pace of the beats were off. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the heroine and hero, just not together. It struck me as a brother and sister being pushed to marriage, not cool.
Unfortunately I won’t be reading any more books by this author. When I read romance I need to feel that guttural, burning desire for one another, not a PG-13 slap stick version of Indian Jones.

Define Historical Fiction

I love historical fiction, however, this book is a reach if you are looking for a novel with a lot of history woven into the story. I don’t mind a little romance but didn’t care for the detail of physical intimacy in this novel. If you are a romance fan and love farcical stories with little to no meaning; this book is for you.

Better than Book 1

This had more action and intrigue than Book 1. I am not positive there was even one actual sex scene. It's possible I missed it since I was listening while doing other things, but I don't think so. I really need both action and sex. But overall, it was worth my time.

Good read

Fun book. The active antics of the main characters are Diego follow. The non normal heroine is exciting.

Great adventure! Definitely worth buying!

The characters go on an adventure that is well thought out, multi-favored, well researched, and exciting. Good character and relationship development. Believable couple and story. And Justine Eyre gives another great performance. I highly recommend The Elusive Earl.

Boring

I enjoyed the first book, but the second was incredibly boring. The author should have combined Brianna’s and her cousin’s full story into one book. I didn’t like Brianna or The Earl. They both were not very flushed out as characters. She seemed like a selfish brat. That really got on my last nerve. The villain is an Italian version of the first book’s villain. With small changes. Definitely would not read again. The best part is the performance by Ms. Eyre.

Unique

Every once in a while You come across a book that is a jewel and by an author you have not read but the reader was Justine Eyre so I took a chance and listened. It was fun,interesting, and complicated. The story had all you could hope for buried treasure, & unknown princess’, villains & a monster villain and of course our Hero who works for London intelligence. Take a chance & listen U will not B disappointed.
