Review The Earls Irresistible Challenge The Sinful Sinclairs Book 1

Could this infamous rake finally have found his countessWhen Lucas Lord Sinclair receives a mysterious summons from a Miss Olivia Silverdale he's. I confess to having often been a bit snobbish about HRs Harleuins Not for me I d usually say Give me those authors like Lisa Kleypas Eloisa James Mary Balogh Caroline Linden etc who have never been published I believe by Mills and BoonHarleuinWell I ve now done a 180 about this I guess Most non Harleuin authors have taken to pandering to the younger give me a bunch of sex and a silly story crowd of readers and have left me out in the cold There are still exceptions such as Meredith Duran Sherry Thomas Mimi Matthews Jayne Fresina but IMO you are welcome to the rest because I don t like to read themSo I m grateful to GR friend Caz who just reviewed Lara Temple s soon to be released Sinful Sinclair 2 book very favorably I ve pre ordered it based on that review and decided to read this one 1 of the series while waiting for the release of 2 I was wowed This is a Harleuin HR and the author is very very goodWhat does this HR have going for it 1 Excellently drawn complex characters 2 Intelligent snappy dialogue 3 Less predictable plot than most HRs 4 The best romance and relationship development I ve read in ages 5 Just the right amount of sex to seal the love deal without wasting pages and being annoyingly explicitOur heroine is Miss Olivia Silverdale a rich heiress from Gillingham who has moved to London with her aunt and her nurse both to escape the scandal surrounding her recent broken engagement and to investigate the death of her beloved godfather Henry Payton who died scandalously in the bed of a prostitute Olivia cannot believe her godfather would have betrayed his wife in this way and in addition she blames herself for his death since the circumstances surrounding her scandal were the reason Henry had been working in London instead of in GillinghamWhile investigating Olivia uncovers a connection between her godfather and Howard Sinclair another man who had died scandalously She makes contact with Lucas Sinclair Howard s son and heir who is now the Earl Sinclair thinking he would want to collaborate with her to find out the truth about both deathsWell that doesn t uite work out the way she had expected Lucas is cynical and bitter about the past and wants to leave it buried with his father But just wait my friends Watch Lucas become intrigued by Olivia At first suspicious that she is either trying to trap him into marriage or wants to blackmail him he finally sees her for what she is A force of nature to be reckoned with A list making truth seeking knight Sir Olive a Dare Better to join her and keep her in line than leave her on her ownThe plot is good It is also well developed and entertaining and doesn t have contrivances and stupid behavior especially on the part of the heroine who is an admirable female The characters are the best I ve read in perhaps a year or so of attempting to find an HR to my taste And the love between H and h develops beautifully and organically There is physical attraction early on but it s a slow burn to the actual sexual intimacy which doesn t happen until close to the three uarters mark That s the way I like itTemple doesn t need scenes with descriptions of body parts fitting into other body parts to show us the sexual nature of the relationship of these two For example there is one very hot scene in which the two are visiting a museum and wander into a room with a series of marble statues Olivia is fascinated by the beauty of these reliefs and feels the need to touch them which she does It s perhaps the sexiest scene in the book and the poor hero is almost unmanned You are a menace Miss Silverdale Lucas said without turning You told me to touch it she repliedI said touch it not make love to the blasted thingThis story has all the romance that s been lacking in all those clinical love stories I ve been reading It s warm and fuzzy and sexy and gave me all the feels I want in a romance It has a hero who is extremely attracted to the heroine but who wonder of wonders is able to control his libido You can see that these two will do very well in their future not just in bed but out of it That s not always a given in many romancesThis is almost a 5 star book for me Why not 5 Well it s darned close to that but there was a little snafumisunderstanding near the end that I found unnecessary It was resolved in a beautiful way but still Maybe I m being too picky

Y is piued and not just by Olivia's intelligent eyes and lithe form A new challenge uickly presents itself keeping Miss Silverdale at arm's lengt. First in a new series called The Sinful Sinclairs the three books are planned to focus on the three Sinclair siblings Lucas Lord Sinclair comes first And to be honest I wasn t at all sure why he was called Lord Sinful though the heroine Olivia is spooked by him at first it seems to be because of a reputation that isn t that different to any other lord in London Lord Sinclair doesn t prey on virgins or the defenceless his mistresses are experienced and know exactly what they re getting into Yes it seems his grandfather and uncle blackened the family name and his father s death in a duel under mysterious circumstances did nothing to help but really Lucas s a sweetheart which Olivia eventually discoversIt s a good thing too because Olivia needs his help In today s society it s hard to comprehend just how devastating to an entire family a scandal could be and how far reaching the conseuences of what seems like a simple decision Olivia s decision not to marry a man she discovers fully intends to continue his affair with one of her married friends has left her a pariah and her godfather s death in shocking circumstances is the last straw When she discovers not all about the death is what it seems and may somehow be linked to the death of the late Lord Sinclair she s determined to investigate and enlists Lucas s helpOlivia s delightful uniuely intelligent and determined and OCD I loved her Wall of Contemplation and Lucas is fascinated despite his initial determination not to have anything to do with her Watching him get drawn helplessly in like a moth to a flame is pretty funny especially since Olivia really has no desire to attract his attention at least not at first By the time she realizes her own feelings Lucas is already accepting of his fate which is a pleasant change in Regencies Too often it s the heroine who does all the piningThis was both a thoroughly enjoyable romance and a sobering look at the effects a scandal could have on reputations in the era both individual and that of an entire family I hope to read the rest of this series soon Lucas s brother and sister both deserve their own happy endings Five stars for a fantastic readDisclaimer I received a copy of this book for review from the author
