Rescuing Lord Inglewood: A Regency Romance Kindle Edition
All he wants is someone he can trust. All she wants is to belong. But when compromising circumstances force them together, do they have a chance at finding love?
Silas Riley, Earl of Inglewood, is known among his peers in Parliament as the man made of stone. As a wealthy peer, there are few he trusts with his friendship. He guards his heart and his honor with vigilance, and when an accident nearly takes his life, he’s faced with a situation which threatens his standing in society.
Growing up in the shadow of her older brother, Esther Fox’s acceptance in his circle has been indifferent at best. So when she ends up in a compromising situation as she saves the life of her brother’s dearest friend, the Earl of Inglewood, she is forced to marry him to save her own reputation. Once again, she finds herself accepted only because of the situation, and not because she is truly wanted.
Neither are prepared for a loss which further complicates their new relationship. With such a difficult beginning, can they ever hope to understand one another, let alone find love?

Everyone talks around the heroine and for her! The hero talks to everyone, everyone instead of to her. Everyone makes decisions about her life for her. What does she do in this story? She engages in negative self talk endlessly and snaps at others. And paints!
He leaves her the morning after the wedding for an extended stay in London. There is no animosity between them, he does it because he thinks this will ease her into her new role as countess! And she just watches his carriage roll out of site. At least up to the 65% where I quit, they hadn't spent much time at all together.
There is a real absence of emotions personally between these two. The emotions occur in their interactions with others.
This story is pretty devoid of any sunshine, humor, or hope along the journey these two take. The talk of future children was even pretty emotionless.
This hero and heroine can continue in their colorless world ever after. But I don't need to be there.
This book I loved probably more than any other book. I'd give it over 5 stars if I could. Esther was a fabulous character and I related to her very well. I picked up my phone to read a couple chapters of the book and didn't put it down until I was done reading. LOVED IT!
I read this book 2x in one day. The first quickly and eagerly devouring it to reach the happily ever after. The second time I listened to with Kindle's text to speech function so I could delight in the words and unfolding of the story.
This is only the first book in the series, but I can already tell you that I am going to love all of them! I cannot wait for the next book to be released! I'm kinda bummed that we have to wait until August. This is one of those times I have to remind myself that writing takes time. I'm not very patient when it comes to book releases.. ;o) Hehe.
Ms. Britton has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I have loved all of her books I've read so far. There a few that I haven't read yet and I'm thinking those need to get bumped up my TBR list. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!
Some relationships I read about I wonder really how well they would last, but this one built upon itself and created something that would last - even when Esther has questions of her self worth and Silas is busy with political stuff they will support each other. This is what great writing can be- create characters with flaws but together they complete each other and help each other.

Just one thing I would mention, as a Brit I quickly picked up on Americanisms. In England, we do not 'visit with' someone, but go to visit them, for example. Neither would a 19th century use 'turn in' when she meant go to bed, although we might say that now as we've all learnt from American films! Still, Americanisms were few and far between and did not spoil my enjoyment of the book. Clearly the author has done her research on the manners and etiquette of the Regency period, as well as the historical events which are the backdrop to the novel. Altogether a really enjoyable read, and I immediately downloaded another of this author's work, which I read in two days, and also reviewed. A third book is already on my Kindle. Keep them coming, Ms Britton!
*Spoiler alert* The 2 main characters seem to spend a good portion of the book apart - which is not unrealistic, but doesn't seem to help the falling-in-love narrative much. Yes, they send correspondence (of a sort - I won't give any further spoilers), but the story just doesn't click right. By the closing, it turns out okay, but it's not the best thing I've read. Others might enjoy it, so I'd say maybe give it a try.
