The Last Earl


4.00 · 2 ratings · Published: Nov 15th, 2015 {{ book.ratingTitle }}
Willful, vain and intelligent, Lady Catherine Lytton believes she is in full control of her destiny when she inherits a large fortune from her uncle.

The return of a distant kinsman, Adrian Stowe, the Earl of Halford, is a welcome relief from the monotony of the English countryside.

Adrian is handsome, enigmatic and, some say, mad. But then, what man would escape the grisly murder of mother, father and brother unscathed? He is also the last of his line, and yet seems to have no interest in his title or his wealth -- and no inclination to find a wife.

In fact, he doesn't seem to do anything that is expected of him; yet, in her pride, Catherine hardly thinks that the Earl will inspire an uncontrollable passion in her. Above all, she cannot imagine that it will be unrequited.

As she follows him to Constantinople, trying to unveil the mystery that surrounds him, she will learn the meaning of love, even as she seems about to lose everything that is precious.

"I love the characters the setting you painted for us with just the right amount of intrigue.....all so perfect."

"I must admit I was doubting this story from the beginning, but you have won me over! It was beautifully written and all the loose ends were meticulously tied in a way that could only mean a perfectly planned plot not a story written on whim."

"This book was one of a kind. I practically spend an almost disproportionate amount of my time looking for decent historical fiction books. This book was beyond decent; it was too beautiful."

"A mind blowing story with excellent characters -- it really touched my heart."

"What a page turner!!!! The cadence and flow in this story is just superb. Thank you for the fantastic read had me enthralled from beginning up until the end."

"It made me sad, happy and excited, and I just love has strong feelings in it!"

"The plot was so well developed, with some unexpected twists and turns that kept me up to late at night as I didn't want to put it down. It was such a pleasure to read a book here with rich prose and great character development in which not one character was flawless, yet you would still cheer for them anyway, despite their faults."

"Oh my days. What a beautiful, amazing and utterly fabulous story. I had my reservations but I am so glad I gave this little gem a chance. Would recommend to everyone, and a movie wouldn't go amiss!"

"Nearly 5 am here and I'm finally finished reading this story. It has been a while since I've read such an amazing story! The twist and turns have really excited me. My heart and mind are fully satisfied. Thank you!"
