Annabelle’s life is turned upside down when her father declares that he has found an excellent suitor for her, Lord Watson Ashdown.
What he does not realize, is that Watson is cruel and inappropriate for the Hathaway reputation.
But that is not the only problem…
Annabelle did not mean it to happen, but she has fallen for Floyd Brewer, the stable boy who works on her family’s land.
Or so she believes about him…
He is kind, loving and caring and nothing like the horrible Lord, but he is not a man that her father will find acceptable.
How will Annabelle get out of her marriage? And what will happen when she discovers that Floyd has some secrets about his real status?
Title: Annabelle Enchants the Rejected Earl
Author: Hanna Hamilton
Published: November 5, 2017
My Rating: 4 stars
Sometimes what is right in front of our noses is nothing more than an illusion. Annabelle discovers that the hard way when she falls for a man who her father would never approve of. A stable boy is not husband material for her, but an older man of truly bad reputation apparently is. Annabelle has fallen in love with a handsome man who tends to their horses, Floyd is everything she’d desire in a husband but she also knows that he would never be permitted to speak to her let alone court her should her father realize her feelings. But things or people aren’t always what they seem.
Annabelle Enchants the Rejected Earl is an intriguing Regency Romance full of twists and turns, and not all will be seen coming your way. The man her father is forcing her to marry is beyond loathsome but he hides that well when around anyone else but Annabelle knows his true character. Floyd and Annabelle attempt to change her future, but complications arise. We don’t learn a lot about Floyd’s time away from Annabelle, and I admit I would have liked to understand more. But seeing them together again only reinforces the feeling that these two are destined to be husband and wife… eventually. The journey to discover their happy ending was very enjoyable, and now I’ll be looking at more of Ms Hamilton’s back list of books to get caught up.
If you enjoy a story that will touch your emotions, a couple who have much to overcome, and the twists and turns that make any complicated romance addicting – then you’d enjoy Annabelle Enchants the Rejected Earl.
