Blog Tour / Book Musings - The Earl is On Fire by Vivienne Lorret

Season's Original #2
Vivienne Lorret
Releasing August 2nd, 2016
Avon Impulse

The sheltered daughter of a country baron, Miss Adeline Pimm comes to London looking for adventure… and finds it in the form of a bloody, unconscious man slumped in the doorway of her family's rented townhouse. Though his identity is a mystery, Adeline is inexplicably drawn to the handsome, injured man and vows to nurse him back to health.

Liam Cavanaugh, the scandalous Earl of Wolford, is startled when he awakens in an unfamiliar bed, wrapped in bandages that hinder his eyesight, with no memory of why he was beaten half to death. Although he can't see the witty young woman who tends to his wounds, her alluring voice--and a single stolen kiss from her soft lips--help soothe his pain. But when he is fully healed, Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.

Liam will do whatever it takes to see Adeline again, even if it means giving up his rakish ways. But his disreputable past is not so easily forgotten and his secrets are far more dangerous than he-or Adeline-ever imagined.

My Musings :

I received a free copy for an honest review.

When I discovered this author in The Debutante is Mine, I was very happy to add another author to my must read TBR list. I expected a lot going into this book. I am glad to say that I enjoyed it more than the previous book. The author sure surpasses the standard set previously.

The characters are so real and the author has the art of making us fall for them easily. Adeline is a feisty and independent miss and her fire and attitude are seen throughout the book. The ton puts some hurdles in her way but she overcomes them with her grace and love of life. Liam is so wicked that I didn't feel that he would not be a good match for Adeline. But as the story progressed, his character went through some visible changes which made me love him towards the end. His vulnerability and his past especially endeared me to him though there were a few scenes where I felt he was harping too much on his past. 

I believe that the supporting cast also should be good in order for a story to be a full entertainer. In this case, Liam's friends and Adeline's family are sweet and so not ton-ish. They are so open and tend to be more trusting, especially Adeline's parents. 

The story was slowly built on the first few scenes. The meeting between the protagonists added to the feel of the romance. The romance was also slowly built up and was simmering for a long time before it went up in intensity. The plot was pretty simple at the beginning. Later on, few hints of intrigue were added and was later resolved which added to the appeal of the plot. 

All in all, it was a great read with the right touch of romance and a few peeks into the familial lives and the society of the ton with a hint of suspense. 

My rating : 5/5
