When a Girl Loves an Earl (Rescued from Ruin Book 5) Kindle Edition
Miss Viola Darling always gets what she wants. Always. And what she wants more than anything is to marry James Kilbrenner, the Earl of Tannenbrook. She’s fallen hard for the giant, taciturn, surly brute, and she positively will have no other. The problem? He’s not interested. Not even a little. But Viola cannot afford to lose. And she has her heart set on James. If only he will bend to a bit of persuasion.
Is an earl like no other
James Kilbrenner knows how determined the entirely-too-beautiful Miss Darling can be—the daft woman cornered him at a perfectly respectable dinner and mangled his cravat before he could escape. He has no desire to marry, less desire to be pursued, and will certainly not kiss her kissable lips until they are both breathless, no matter how tempted he may be.
And only the right one will do
Thrown in her path by a meddling marchioness, James finds himself under sensual siege from a tiny, flirtatious sprite who puts both his heart and his vow to remain unwed at risk. And when scandal looms, he learns the hard way that a man can resist only so long before the indomitable Miss Darling gets her way.
About the Author
Reading romance novels came easily to Elisa Braden. Shes been doing it since she was twelve. Writing them? That took a little longer. After graduating with degrees in creative writing and history, Elisa spent entirely too many years in real jobs, writing T-shirt copyand other peoples resumesand articles about giftware displays. But that was before she woke up and started dreaming about the very unreal job of being a romance novelist. Frankly, she figures better late than never. Elisa lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, where youre constitutionally required to like the colors green and gray. Good thing she does. Other items on the like list include cute dogs, strong coffee, and epic movies.

Coming into this book we were already aware that Viola is somewhat smitten by the Earl, James Kilbrenner; however, he is in no way interested. He has vowed never to marry, and as Viola continuously places herself in his path, it makes for a very exciting journey the two will travel. This beautiful little lady has such a big personality, and a driving determination that is unstoppable when she sets her heart on something, or someone. And Viola has definitely set her heart on Tannenbrook! I absolutely loved Viola. Tannenbrook is just as lovable, he truly is a kind and gentle giant of a man, except there are times when he pushes Viola away that it is very easy to become upset with him. This story is such a roller coaster ride, spilling over with so many emotions. I have not laughed or cried as much with a book in a very long time. Viola and James are truly two of my favorite characters.
I highly recommend reading "When a Girl Loves an Earl". After reading the ARC of this book, I rushed to pre-order a final published copy for my Kindle library to make my Elisa Braden collection complete. This author is awesome! Looking forward to the next in the series!
The hero, James, was relentlessly pursued by the heroine, Viola. James is the typical tall, dark and brooding braw scot. Viola is an innocent (yet assertive), humorous, mature and petite, beautiful heroine. She pursued James (not seduced him, mind you, although the attraction is there) got rejected several times but eventually they ended up being married after a perceived compromising situation. James has a reason for not wanting to marry and, of course, it has something to do with a tragic past. As a married couple they revisited James’ hometown where the main conflict of the story happened and James, who was used to Viola’s starry-eyed love for him, actually had to woo her and win her back since Viola wanted to have their marriage dissolved. There were several lovemaking scenes in the book that just complemented an already awesome story. It really was such a lovely romantic journey. A light yet substantial read. There is also an epilogue.
The characters in this book were so far, my favorites. The hero was born into a humble family in Scotland. Unbeknownst to James, there was an earldom in his family. So when the earl died, James was elevated to be an earl.
Viola was mesmerized by James from the very start by the new earl. She was like a heat seeking missile. In her eyes, James was hot and he was going to be hers come hell or high water.
But James had an unfortunate relationship with a teenager when he was a teenager himself. And this past threatens his future with Viola.
I appreciated the fact that the author didn't make Viola into a caricature. She could have easily been written to be a female buffoon and a sourpuss who was rescued from a less than wholesome personality by the honorable earl. Instead, Viola was a amazing person. She accepted her "faults" and saw the best in everyone in her orbit. But she saved all her love for the great hulking Scotsman turned earl.
For those who like "clean" romances , this book is not for you. It is perfectly steamy. And with that, I'm ready to begin the next Elisa Braden book.
A charming, funny story about a headstrong young woman who knows what she wants, and a gentle giant who keeps trying to avoid her (and love) from finding him.

What a story,I have to tell,that after reading about Lord Tannenbrook,I craved his story.Like chocolate,but a bit more obsessive.Anyway,the book starts with a young James,gives us insight in his life before meeting him in the other books and what a ride that is,now we get why he is so "cold" towards Viola in the beginning.And Viola,I have to admit I was a bit afraid of how was Elisa going to shape her,because I don't like my heroines that bold in the pursuit of the men they love,but she is so lovely,I did find myself saying "She did not do that,nooooo",but she did,because Elisa never disappoints and I found myself liking this slip of a girl and rooting for her to win the "beast's" heart!She is a bit unorthodox *chuckles*,put mildly,but she cracks that tough exterior of our scotsman and makes him see that there is more of her,beyond her beauty,there is a smart and strong girl,who knows what she wants and goes for it,with a bit of help,a kiss here,a witness there(“I say, Lord Tannenbrook,” the dowager intoned. “For a man who professes to loathe the very notion of matrimony, one supposes you would opt for trysts of the less public variety.”*wink*wink*).
I loved their story and it put a smile on my face,couldn't help it,if you're liking your heroines bold and your heroes brooding,look no further,this is the story you were looking for!
I was given an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review!
This had less repeating scenes at least. But there were still issues with mistakes in the writing like poor grammar and even full stops in the middle of sentences etc. The characters in all three books are nice enough.
I liked James, and I did like Viola, but sometimes the author made her unlikable and demanding. I ignored those parts. I'm glad James got his happy ever after with a beautiful girl who truly loved him. But the books are not worth the price I paid. And honestly, even though the next book is much cheaper, at only 0.99p, I'm still not tempted to buy it. Says it all really.
