The sheltered daughter of a country baron, Miss Adeline Pimm comes to London looking for adventure… and finds it in the form of a bloody, unconscious man slumped in the doorway of her family’s rented townhouse. Though his identity is a mystery, Adeline is inexplicably drawn to the handsome, injured man and vows to nurse him back to health. 
Liam Cavanaugh, the scandalous Earl of Wolford, is startled when he awakens in an unfamiliar bed, wrapped in bandages that hinder his eyesight, with no memory of why he was beaten half to death. Although he can’t see the witty young woman who tends to his wounds, her alluring voice—and a single stolen kiss from her soft lips—helps soothe his pain. But when he is fully healed, Liam is not ready to let go of the one woman who stirs his deepest longings.
Liam will do whatever it takes to see Adeline again, even if it means giving up his rakish ways. But his disreputable past is not so easily forgotten and his secrets are far more dangerous than he—or Adeline—ever imagined.

Loret brings us the classic story of the sheltered girl and the bad boy in This Earl is on Fire. Liam, the hero, was a bit frustrating at times. Adeline, the heroine, gave him no reasons to doubt her sincerity, yet he does! And he does it continually! He was certainly one of those heroes that I wanted to throat punch!

Adeline is great! She is very bright, yet still naive which actually totally worked. She is also so giving that I worried she would be easily taken advantage of. Liking her so much made me dislike Liam even more sometimes!

If you like your historical romances on the somewhat predictable side, this is a solid choice. Sometimes, you just want to know what you are getting from a book and this is a classic good girl/bad boy with the historical spin. I enjoyed Lorret’s writing and thought she wrote dynamic characters and the plot moved at a fairly good pace.

From This Earl is on Fire:

The moment Adeline Pimm saw the body slumped against the doorway, she knew that London was a city full of adventure. Oh . . . and, of course, danger.

A series of indrawn breaths followed.

Father’s gasp was more of a wordless exclamation as the man beneath the narrow portico of their rented townhouse tipped over the threshold and crumbled into his arms. Mother’s accompanied a jolt of her limbs, an ever-preparedness to manage any given situation. While Adeline’s stalled in her throat. Tiny grains of gooseflesh rose on her arms. Her skin tingled. And some strange force clutched her heart.

Her own response made little sense to her. After having been shielded from . . . well . . . everything for her entire life, a more understandable reaction might have been to faint, perhaps. Yet instead, she felt compelled to rush across the foyer to offer aid.

Her body answered this urge. Automatically she took a step forward. Unfortunately, so did her mother, effectively blocking her path.

Hildebrand Pimm—Bunny to all those who knew her—clapped a hand over her daughter’s eyes. “Adeline, hasten to your room. This sight is too troubling for your eyes.”

Not just any young woman’s eyes, Adeline noted, but hers and hers alone.

  1. I had picked up the first book in the series and the writing didn’t particularly work for me. I might give this one a try though especially if I’m in the mood for a bad boy/good girl HR!
    Great review, Sam!
