THE EARL'S BETROTHAL by Karen Tuft — #amreading #bookreviews #giveaway

THE EARL'S BETROTHAL by Karen Tuft. This was a delightful love story. It pulled me in right away, and I fell in love with the characters. There were a couple of twists that Karen did a great job weaving into the story. Amelia was very confident and sure of herself in most areas of her life, so when she was unsure of herself, at times, it seemed out of place for her character. Of course that could have been inflicted on her because of society, but to me it felt out of character. Anthony was true to his character through the whole book. It is a very sweet love story that anyone would enjoy.

Out of the war and into another, Captain Lord Anthony Hargreaves finds the politics of romance to be as uninviting a battle as the one that nearly cost him his life in Badajoz, Spain.
Wounded both mentally and physically from the Peninsular War in 1812, Anthony returns home to find that his older brother has died, placing Anthony next in line to inherit the estate. But he’s not ready for such responsibilities. And when Anthony’s dying father pleads with him to marry and produce an heir to preserve the family title, it nearly sends Anthony over the edge; nevertheless he dutifully faces a long line of hopeful young ladies who await him. No one grabs his attention, though, like Amelia Clarke, his mother’s stunning companion, who is off-limits for the earl. But when Anthony unwittingly puts Amelia in a compromising situation, he dedicates himself to protecting her reputation.
But the horrors Anthony faced while away from home have left him feeling broken and tormented. And Anthony finds himself drawn to Miss Clarke, the only one who can chase away his demons, but he must overcome the hostility of a society driven by class, a jealous duke bent on revenge, and himself—for could Amelia ever really love a haunted man?
