Sportochick's Musings ~ An unusual historical romance with spicy love scenes and very unusual twists.
The Untouchable EarlFallen Ladies #2
by Amy Sandas
Lily Chadwick has spent her life playing the respectable debutante. But when an unscrupulous moneylender snatches her off the street and puts her up for auction at a pleasure house, she finds herself in the possession of a man who fills her with breathless terror and impossible yearning.
Though the Earl of Harte claimed Lily with the highest bid, he hides a painful secret―one that has kept him from knowing the pleasure of a lover's touch. Even the barest brush of skin brings him physical pain, and he's spent his life keeping the world at arm's length. But there's something about Lily that maddens him, bewitches him, compels him...and drives him toward the one woman brave and kind enough to heal his troubled heart.
The Untouchable Earl is an unusual historical romance with spicy love scenes and very unusual twists. I absolutely loved the cover and the blurb for this book and they were the reason I wanted to read my first book by the author Amy Sandas.
The Prologue did a fine job of seating up the main part of the story. It created mystery and intrigue as to what was going on with the younger Earl so when the story actually starts five years later the reader has a basic understanding of his sensual proclivity.
Lily's character is that of an average looking virgin wallflower with a hidden backbone. As the story develops I quite forgot her average looks and saw her as a beautiful if sometimes silly girl but she still had a backbone. I admired many things in her personality though some of the repeated reminders of her virginity did get a little old.
Lily's sisters, Emma and Portia were definitely opposite of Lily's personality but each of their characters were so interesting that I am excited to read their stories.
Earl of Harte was just so hard to read.....but like an onion as you peal off the layers you get to his true substance and your opinion of him will change. I connected with him from the first page and the ending for me was very rewarding.
I give this 4 STARS and recommend it for readers who want to read something out of the ordinary.
