To escape her traitorous father’s reputation, Lady Elizabeth has left behind the glittering balls of London Society to act as a governess. For the first time in her life, she’s independent and taking care of herself. All is fine...until the irresistible Lord Hawkins arrives at her employer’s house.
Lord Hawkins is a rake of the highest order, but the beautiful governess working for his cousin makes him want to act like a gentleman. After an attempt on her life, Hawk discovers who Elizabeth really is. Now under orders from the Home Office to bring her in, he vows instead to protect her.

Hawk may be handsome and honorable, but falling for him will surely bring Lizzie heartbreak. Especially when he proposes the only way to keep her safe is to marry her. She doesn't want his name if he’s only doing it out of a sense of duty. But someone in the Home Office wants Lizzie dead, and even becoming his countess may not save her life…

* Seducing the Marquess
* Marrying the Wrong Earl
* Denying the Duke
* Wagering For Miss Blake

Captivating the Earl has action and danger, secrets, and suspense. I like that you can’t guess who the villain is until the story reveals the scoundrel’s identity.  This is also a story of romance and passion!” -Peggy C., NetGalley

“To say I was captivated by this story puts it lightly!!” -Lori D., Goodreads

“This one will have you transported, transfixed and captivated with all the ins and outs of a dashing romance filled with danger especially when the two characters in question have all the right stuff to keep us on our toes. This one certainly does warm the heart and curl the toes.” -Denise V., Goodreads

“It is an absolutely amazing historical fiction novel. I loved everything about it, the story, the characters, the starting, and the ending. I think it's perfect in every way!” -Fizza Y., NetGalley

I really loved this book. Lizzy was really strong and always made sure she wasn't being ordered or wasn't the typical girl to hide behind someone even in 1818.
And I really liked Hawk too.
I hoped to find a more thrilling mystery though.
All in all it was a good romance with a bit of thrill ♥️ ...more
