The Mad Earl’s Bride by Loretta Chase

Thanks to Edelweiss and Avon books, I was given The Mad Earl’s Bride (Scoundrels #3.5) by Loretta Chase to review.  This novella is a re-release that originally appeared in the print anthology Three Weddings and a Kiss.

I was quite excited when I received this book, I adore quirky romances and I had the vibe I would love it.  I am iffy about how I feel towards this book.  I really liked the heroine, Gwendolyn. She was smart, strong, and didn’t call it quits in a male dominated world.  Dorian…eh. I was intrigued by his appearance and I enjoyed his feelings towards his wife, but I felt he lacked.  😦

Overall, I rate The Mad Earl’s Bride 3 stars. I enjoyed the overall storyline, but I felt it was too wordy.  I became bored with the inner dialogues.  I wish we were given more insight to the Earl’s poor days instead of just being told for a few sentences.  I would recommend this book to my historical romance addicted friends.  You do not need to read the other books in the series to understand what is going on.  Give it a shot!
