Love left me off its to-do list.

I date. I’m all for giving guys a chance. I’ve just never met the one.

Until on a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist. Logan Steele is all tousled hair, hard chest and lips so perfect I want to reach out and touch them just to check they’re real. I’m sure that’s a thunderclap of chemistry I feel between us.

Did I mention he’s an Earl with a self-made fortune?

A billionaire who works tirelessly for charity?

And he’s so hot, watching him is like staring at the sun.

But like I said, love isn’t rooting for me.

When I find out Logan Steele is out to destroy everything I’ve dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.

It no longer matters that he quickens my pulse just saying my name, weakens my knees with a single touch and that he might just be the greatest kisser that ever lived.

I might believe in love but Logan Steele is definitely not the one.

A standalone romance.

My Review

It’s clear from the onset of The Earl of London that there are a number of differences between the hero and the heroine – ones that could not only prevent any kind of relationship from developing between them but also ones that illustrate just how different their ways of life are as well as what matters most to them when it comes to family, love, and a lasting legacy.

Logan Steele has worked his entire adult life to accomplish two things – reclaim his grandmother’s childhood home in Woolton and do everything in his power to prove, mostly to himself, that he is not his father’s son and that Logan’s legacy will be one filled with accomplishments and money. In order for Logan to achieve his goals, though, he doesn’t have time for personal entanglements because they are nothing but distractions, especially a woman who is not only not his type but one who challenges him and judges him for his choices in life and in business.

Darcy Westbury appears to be Logan’s antithesis in every way. She lives for the past and keeping her grandparents’ estate as well as the village they lived in a true representation of how they lived and what they stood for, and while it’s a noble pursuit, in some ways, it doesn’t allow her to stay in the present or look to the future because she’s so focused on keeping her family’s history alive, which makes her appear quite close-minded at times.

Logan is a city boy, a player, a man whose career determines his life, and guy who demands control in everything that he does; Darcy is a country girl, a woman who values who and what people stand for, a girl who is passionate in keeping her grandparents’ legacy alive even if it means sacrificing any kind of personal ‘fun’ for herself.

As Logan and Darcy circle around each other, fighting for what they feel is best for Woolton, they find themselves insanely attracted to a person who seems to be the direct opposite of their true ‘type’ and as their attraction plays out and they get to know one another, what starts as a ‘live in the moment’ connection turns into something that Darcy never thought possible and that Logan never wanted to have and what these conflicted feelings do to them as a couple and as individuals definitely illustrates the characters’ differences and also forces them to confront their pasts and how much they dictate their presents and their futures.

The Earl of London is a steamy and complicated enemies-to-lovers’ story; it’s a book whose main characters appear to be contradictory in every aspect of their lives but somehow find something together that allows them to be their true selves, and while it did take me a bit to warm up to Logan because of how he lived and viewed his life and to see that he and Darcy could make things work between them despite their differences, it’s clear that they helped each other want more than they had and also believe that they were capable of achieving something just for themselves.

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series, What the Lightning Sees and Calling Me. The novels and together each series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.

Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.

She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
