No woman dared to love him...
 
England, 1819
 
The Earl of Amhurst has returned to his estate in search of a wife and, more importantly, an heir. Simon Devere isn't interested in some comely, simpering creature. A beautiful woman only brings heartbreak and ruin, and Simon's disfigured visage is proof enough of that. No, he wants a wife who is unattractive and undesirable-and the homelier, the better.
 
But nothing about Lady Henrietta Beauchamp is homely. She is lovely and sweet... and struggles to mix with polite society when she would so much rather have plants for company.

It's an impossible and unlikely match... unless this awkward beauty can bring hope back into a solitary beast's life.

REVIEW:  THE EARL'S NEW BRIDE BY FRANCES FOWLKES
 
The Earl's New Bride by Frances FowlkesMy rating: 5 of 5 starsTwo wounded people find the perfect soul mate in each other. The Earl's New Bride is a story of love, betrayal, beauty and pain. I was spellbound by how appealing this story is. A dark cloud of mystery hangs over Simon (The Earl). Bitter, disillusioned and disfigured he does not trust easily. Not willing to make the same mistakes twice he decides he will find a wife that meets his standards. Not a beauty. Henrietta is beautiful inside and out. She has a good heart and smart mind, but her interpersonal skills prove lacking. She keeps to herself due to a speech impediment. Simon is not what Henrietta expects. Henrietta is not what Simon believes he wants. Yet their souls call to each other despite the obstacles. I received an ARC of The Earl's New Bride by Frances Fowlkes in exchange for an honest review. I thought it was an enthralling read of courage and redemption despite the odds.View all my reviews ( )

"4.5 out of 5 stars! Simon has been known as the Black Earl ever since he inherited his title and because of the peculiar situation that he was found in during his mistress’s death about 5 years ago. Yet, now that he has “been cleared” of any wrongdoing, his next goal is to obtain a wife in good standing to save his reputation and so he can get an heir. However, life has thrown Simon a lot of bad curveballs, will he consider Henrietta one of those bad ones or the best thing that has ever happened to him?

This historical romance was unlike any I had read before … it was intense … it was sweet … it had a mystery that kept you guessing … yet..."

This was a good solid historical romance, very Jane Austen-esque in nature. I think it will make historical romance "purists" happy - those who don't like the current trend to get really steamy in the story. [a:Frances Fowlkes|8145738|Frances Fowlkes|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1398453123p2/8145738.jpg] is a new-to-me author, and one that I will be reading more of in the future.

This story is similar to some of the historical retellings of Beauty and the Beast. Our hero is Simon Devere, Earl of Amhurst. Simon received the moniker "Black Earl" due to a sordid past of salacious rumors which resulted in his disfiguring. Simon has decided its time for him to take a wife and has invited some eligible ladies to his estate for a country soiree, where he will pick one among them. Unfortunately for Simon, the rumors and scars scare most ladies away - which is too bad because I absolutely loved Simon. He was broody and brokenhearted, just one of those men that you wanted to get your hands on and fix right up. I was in his corner cheering the whole time, even when he was bound and determined to find a wife that he was not attracted to. I totally understood his reasoning given his past full of betrayal and heartache.

I also liked the heroine, Henrietta, who was an intelligent introvert who cared more for reading and Herbology than she did for parties and people. I definitely identified with Henrietta - I hate when things get to peopley! After the death of her father (who bore no sons), Henrietta and her family are in danger of losing her ancestral home. So Henrietta is determined to wed the new earl to keep her home if nothing else. But Henrietta is such a good person that she was able to see past the rumors and scars and find the good person in Simon that the other ladies overlooked.

Of course every historical needs a little scandal, so we have a touch of that here with mysterious illnesses, romantic rivalries and the scandal broadsheets that get delivered on a regular basis. There is even a little mystery happening that had an unexpected culprit. The story had good bones and was paced well and was just overall a "good read" (for all my lack of eloquence in this review).

I received an advanced copy of this book from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review. 4 stars / 2 flames. ( )
