    1. The Earl’s Prize is about Miss Amy Bainbridge, a well-bred lady who’s forced to live on reduced circumstances, and Joss Tallant, the man who represents everything she detests in a gentleman and at the same time intrigues every curious cell on her body.“Love is for fools and it will only make you unhappy…” These are the words that Joscelyne, Earl of Tallant, lived by. He’s a jaded person, or he appears to be. Who can blame him when both his parents gave him the same advice, if you can [...]


    2. My first exposure to this author was in a Christmas anthology and the characters featured seemed to have a common past leading me to wonder if they starred in earlier books. Here's the first one about the Tallant family.Some seriously dysfunctional parents emotionally cripple their children: Joss and Julianna. As adults they dally and defy society but inside they're miserable. Joss comes across Amy and her family through Amy's brother, Richard who is an inveterate gambler like his father leaving [...]


    3. I found myself torn about the book. I liked the result and most of the chase to get there but the disgusting character of his sister I found really appalling. I wanted to feel she was redeemed at the end. I also disliked how her supposed friend Lady Spry told her secrets and then was going ratio use her at the end. I understand going to her for help, but not thinking someone ass impoverished as her could part with that huge sum of money. I did want Spry and Fleet to have their own happy ending. [...]


    4. The writing was bad, the history was wrong, and don't get me started on the author's overuse of the exclamation mark. But the characters were so good and the plot was so intriguing that I didn't want to stop reading it.I'm hoping that this was a first effort and that subsequent books were better. But the editor should be given a warning for letting those mistakes through.


    5. I hadn't read any romance in quite some time before I picked up this book. I was so glad I did! Such a fun plota woman of little means finds a winning lottery ticket and all the hi jinx that go along with it.Fun read, and I really could picture the characters and the settings.Great way to spend a flight or rainy afternoon.


    6. Well!!!! I got halfway through the book!!!!! I couldn't take all the exclamation marks any further!!!! They distracted me to the point that I was expecting them instead of being engrossed in the story!!!!! Just too many!!!!!





    7. Traditional regency romance between a wallflower and a rake. Well written and lots of chemistry, without being sexually explicit



    8. This novel has some great touches to it. And I liked how the hero was flawed. I really want to read more by this author now!




    9. I loved this book! It was very romantic and kept me up late at night to find out what was going to happen next!


    10. This one is quite adorable. Gotta love those rakes who are just itching to reform. And I loved all of Amy's good sense.


    11. About mid-way through the book, I figured out that the hero was a secondary character in another of L Carlyle's books. It was fun to finally read that character's whole story!
