The Mad Earl's Bride by Loretta Chase

June 18, 2013
We have us a winner!


You know how it is.  Sometimes you forget.  You read book after book - some are good, some are not.  Occasionally, they all start blending together.  Then you pick up one and you are
reminded just how special some authors are.  That's what happened to me in the case of The Mad Earl's Bride, by Loretta Chase.  Originally published in the anthology Three Weddings and a Kiss.

With this delightful tale, Loretta Chase has taken the small book format and made it seem as if it were a full-length story.  And, we are even blessed with a visit from Dain, Jessica and the ever goofy Bertie Trent.  It was great seeing those characters again, and I have to say I have grown quite fond of Bertie.  There are some hidden depths to that guy.

Gee, I wish this book had been full-length.  I really wanted to hang out with this couple just a little longer.  Gwendolyn and Dorian were wonderful characters, with a keen sense of humor.  They were so well written, it is still hard for me to believe this was a short story.  If I continue I will be gushing, so I will stop.

But one more thing.  Thanks Tracy! (Tracy's Place)  If not for you, this would would have remained under my radar and then I would have missed my favorite book this year!

Been seeing really good reviews for this one. I wasn't going to get it, but now I'm reconsidering. Hmmm.
