Capturing The Earls Love by Jane Lark

What They Say:

From Kindle bestselling Historical romance author, Jane Lark, comes a brand new FREE novella to accompany her breathtaking Marlow Intrigues series.

This novella tells the story of secondary characters from The Illicit Love of a Courtesan...

Rupert Stanforth, Earl of Morton, is exasperated by his sister's choice of friend. Meredith Divine clings, using Rowena's plain appearance as a foil for her auburn curls and fuller figure. He would break the friendship, but the more he complains, the more time the girls spend together. Ceasing his disagreement, he hopes the friendship will die, believing Meredith will take a wrong step soon...

Meredith clings to her only friend, Lady Rowena Stanforth, despite the disgusted looks thrown by Rowena's proud, judgmental brother. Lord Morton cannot abide Meredith because of her low standing, but Meredith's heart favours him . . . then in his single act of kindness, Meredith grasps an opportunity she cannot resist...

What I Say:

I would like to thank author Jane Lark for sending me a copy of this in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This is my last review of Jane's books, I have loved this series and can't wait to read more from Jane.

This is a short story about Rupert, Edward and Robert Marlowe's cousin.  Rupert is not impressed with his sisters friend Meredith she irritates him and he thinks she is schemeing.

Meredith isn't schemeing she is shy and on the outside of the ton, Rowena is her friend and sheild as she is shy and nervous, but also totally in love with Rupert.  Devastated when she is told she is to marry her fathers business partner she tricks Rupert into marriage.

This is a nice quick read but I was also sad that it wasn't longer as I would like to have got to know both of them more.

I couldn't help but like Meredith an felt sorry for her as she tried to get Rupert to notice her.  Rupert is another brilliant Marlowe male.

A great quick read, that also goes with the other books.

4 out of 5 stars
