Review: Marrying the Wrong Earl (Lords and Ladies in Love #2) by Callie Hutton


Lady Arabella Danvers is happy with her life just the way it is. She is free to be herself and take care of broken and abandoned animals. Her mother is desperate for her to marry, and has decided to take things into her own hands. There is just one little problem with her plan.

Nash, the Earl of Clarendon has determined it is time to take a wife. He has selected a woman to whom he intends to propose. However, the annoying Lady Arabella has stumbled into his life at the wrong time, and in the wrong place.

But he of all people should know if Lady Arabella is involved, plans will go awry.

5-Sweet-Stars Review

It's a lighthearted, humorous, and very entertaining historical romance novel. Lady Arabella does not fit into ton's life. She is spirited and love rescuing animals. She has no interest in hosting dinners or specialising with her peers, who clearly do not hold her in any regard. So she is happy spending time with her pets. Unfortunately, her mother does not like her "hobby". She wants to see her well-married. In fact, she wants for Lady Arabella to marry as soon as possible, not only that, also to marry someone who is rich and old. Her logic is that he will not live for long and then Arabella will be free to do as she pleases. Her mother's scheming leads to Arabella's wedding to Lord Clarendon aka Nash.

Nash always thought he'd marry a biddable society miss. Who will be a perfect countess and never embarrass him in public. Arabella is the exact opposite. She argues, and do as she pleases with no respect for society's demands. And she loves animals, probably more than she will ever love him. But now that they're married they will have to try their best to get along with each other. Otherwise they will end up miserable. Therefore, he is willing to give her a chance. Hopefully she will learn to act according to her proper place in society. As a countess she must adhere to certain way of living no matter how much she despises it.

It's an absolutely fantastic read. Two people who do not know each other well, and what little they know about one another isn't something they like, yet they find themselves married. Will they ever be able to find love or happiness or are they doomed to be in an unhappy relationship?

I loved this book. It's one of the best historical novels I've read this year. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good historical fiction.
