3.5 stars.

If you’re a lover of the ultra slow burn romance with bickering MC’s engaged in an awesome adventure then you’ll love this. I enjoyed it but this trope is always more entertaining if I’m watching it played out on a TV show or movie. On a soap opera or a prime time series, it’s exciting... ...more

I had so much fun writing Brianna and Daniel's story. I liken their story as a cross between Pride & Prejudice and Romancing The Stone, and seeing Daniel and Bree overcoming their initial prejudice of each other's natures and find their happy ever after was simply a delight. Plus part of the... ...more

I had no idea the journey I was getting myself into when I began The Elusive Earl. It's got a fake-relationship and hate to love trope as well as murder and treasure-hunting packed wonderfully in a sow burn romance.

"The appreciation you show me, after all I have done for you over the years, takes my breath away."

About the author

Maddison Michaels

Indoctrinated into a world of dashing rogues and feisty heroines when she was fourteen years old, Maddison Michaels is a prolific reader and writer of romantic suspense and historical fiction. She gets her daily dose of suspense from working as a police officer, prosecuting real-life villains in the Courts of Australia. A member of the RWA and RWA Australia, Maddison is as passionate about her writing as she is about her other two loves: her family and her cups of tea. Luckily, she gets a healthy dash of romance married to her wonderful husband, and her exercise regime is kept on track by her six-year-old daughter, who ensures Maddison is kept very busy chasing her around. Maddison’s debut novel The Devilish Duke is her way of time traveling back to Victorian London to experience a cornucopia of intrigue, romance, and debauchery all from the comfort of her living room!
