When Hugh Winthrop, the future Earl of Albury, decides to advertise for a wife in the London paper, he never expected an anonymous response from a woman who matches him wit for wit. Their back-and-forth letters on the true nature of love, something they disagree on wholeheartedly, leave him shocked—and intrigued. But then the woman he’s been corresponding with shows up on his doorstep, enticingly beautiful and offering a marriage of convenience in exchange for his protection…
Lady Phoebe Maitland expected to marry for love and nothing else, until the man she gave her trust betrayed her. The more intrigued she becomes by the mysterious and devastatingly handsome Hugh, however, the more she realizes he’s holding back from opening his heart due to long-held secrets she struggles to understand. As passion flares wickedly between them, their marriage bed is quick to heat up. But when Phoebe’s past threatens to destroy the fragile bond they’ve formed, even a budding belief in love might not be enough to save them.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Oh la lá! Get ready for all kinds of inappropriate fun and some seriously sweet romance with When the Earl Met his Match.

There’s a lot that goes on in this story that isn’t mentioned in the blurb so I can’t say much about it without ruining the surprises. But, I will wholeheartedly recommend this read if you’re in the mood for a fluffy and warm historical.

Phoebe was all passion and heart, and when she saw what her parents wanted for her (or more accurately for themselves and the family name) she went all out to escape that fate. Unfortunately, not everything worked out exactly as she planned, and that is how she finds herself at Hugh’s door offering a marriage of convenience.

I loved how she was willing to risk everything to fight for what she felt was right. She was sweet, a bit sassy and completely improper.

Hugh was the sweetest guy ever. Marked by his past and circumstances, he was closed off, and although it was understandable, it kind of drove me crazy a little bit at times.

Their chemistry together was off the charts hot and witnessing their relationship bloom was a joy. The pace felt a bit slow at times but they were so good together I could totally ignore it.

With some suspense, a lot of heart and some seriously scorching shenanigans, When the Earl Met his Match hit just the right spot!
