Beguiling the Earl (Landing a Lord #2) by Suzanna Medeiros
Catherine Evans has been besotted with the Earl of Kerrick, her brother-in-law's best friend, since she first met him. She had hoped for the feeling to be returned during her coming out season. She certainly didn't expect him to become engaged to one Rose Hardwick, but then, to be fair, neither did Kerrick. Kerrick's interest in Lord and Lady Thornton's daughter, Rose Hardwick, was instigated by forces at a higher command.
Catherine interest in Kerrick is instigated from the heart.
Kerrick's interest in Catherine? Hmm?
And Rose's interest? Well, that's another story entirely.
But who is behind Lord and Lady Thornton's interest in attaching Kerrick for their daughter Rose? And why?
A tad predictable, but an enjoyable read with likeable characters as political machinations, matchmaking fathers and unknown traitors interrupt the course of true love.
