Book Description

Alistair Johnstone’s days of running whisky come to an abrupt halt when he inherits an earldom. After years of living in Scotland and denying his English heritage, he now must return despite his mother’s bitter contempt and his own lack of desire. When his mother’s attempt to run whisky goes awry, Alistair is forced to step in and save her by doing one last whisky run – however, if he’s caught, he will face a traitor’s death. 

Emma Thorne’s uncle is trying to kill her and so far has failed, thank goodness. But with only one month until she reaches her majority, inherits her fortune and is released from his guardianship, she knows she is not safe. Emma escapes to a nearby estate where she stumbles upon a house party being held by the Wicked Earls’ Club and finds herself at the mercy of the most extraordinary earl. One who could save her or see her condemned.

When innocent lies become reality and danger follows them every step of the way, could love be the answer to both their problems, or will their passions be their undoing?

Book Review

He's half British and half Scottish. The death of his grandfather renders him the Earl of Benton. It's a legacy he can't refuse, especially if he wishes to use his newly inherited wealth to restore his castle in Scotland. His mother Madge feels that she's lost him to his British heritage and creates a scheme to smuggle whiskey which she knows only he can help her with.

Alistair is on the way to help his mom in Scotland when Emma lands in his lap, literally. She's a merchant's daughter, but she's the heiress to a fortune so the ton will accept her. Only trouble is, she has no wish to marry. Especially not her Uncle's malicious son. Unfortunately he is her guardian for another month. A month that she may not survive.

Alistair takes Emma under his protection and offers her a trip to Scotland. It serves both their purposes. They pretend to be married and while it makes no difference in England, what Emma doesn't know is that declaring each other husband and wife in front of a witness in Scotland is all that it takes to be married.

How will she react to the news that she's actually married to the handsome Earl. Will he be able to win her trust and convince her that he does not have any need for her money? Given the condition of his castle in Scotland and the fact that he's running whiskey, he doesn't think so.

Another beautiful historical story from the author. The characters are lovable, the situations that they find themselves in funny to the reader, and there's plenty of action to keep you engrossed till the end of the story. The book is also part of a multi-author series known as the Wicked Earls' Club.
