The Earl I Ruined Book Review
The Earl I Ruined is hands-down one of my favorite historical romances of 2019. Childhood enemies to lovers is one of my favorite tropes and Scarlett Peckham does it so well. Constance and Julian have such a complicated relationship, and I found myself rooting for them from the very beginning. I can’t wait to read more from Scarlett Peckahm.<br><br>I listened to this one in audiobook format, and the narrator was fantastic. It is definitely one of the reasons why I enjoyed this book so much.
She’s beautiful, rich, and reckless…
When Lady Constance Stonewell accidentally ruins the Earl of Apthorp’s entire future with her gossip column, she does what any honorable young lady must: offer her hand in marriage. Or, at the very least, stage a whirlwind fake engagement to repair his reputation. Never mind that it means spending a month with the dullest man in England. Or the fact that he disapproves of everything she holds dear.
He’s supposedly the most boring politician in the House of Lords…
Julian Haywood, the Earl of Apthorp, is on the cusp of finally proving himself to be the man he’s always wanted to be when his future is destroyed in a single afternoon. When the woman he’s secretly in love confesses she’s at fault, it isn’t just his life that is shattered: it’s his heart.
They have a month to clear his name and convince society they are madly in love…
But when Constance discovers her faux-intended is decidedly more than meets the eye—not to mention adept at shocking forms of wickedness—she finds herself falling for him.
There’s only one problem: he can’t forgive her for breaking his heart.
