The Most Eligible Lord in London a confounded eligible Lord I rather enjoyed this despite the fact that our heroine Adeline drove me crazy with her definition of a rake which Frederick, Lord Littleton Frits to his mother and grandmother just didn t seem to be To my mind anyway Of course Lady Adeline Wivenly s views have been colored by a rather stern young woman Frits had been dazzled by last

s views have been colored by a rather stern young woman Frits had been dazzled by last season Someone he d courted assiduously until he decided they were very different people He d wrongly fled back to his beloved country estate without explaining to Lady Dorcus Calthor Dorie, the reasons why, or at least allowing her dissolve the relationship We first met Dorie in The Marquis She d Been Waiting For I knew that scene at the lake was as familiar Here it is seen from a different viewpoint I really enjoyed the background inclusion of some of the people already met in The Marriage Game series, including some of the young women Adeline becomes fast friends with Frits is not quite Freddy Standen from Heyer s Cotillion , but like Freddy I find him a very loveable character His courting or rather corralling of Adeline is quaint and rather funny Frits has to prove to Adeline they re suited and their mutual interest in animals play a big part.Of course there a a real cad and rake who has arrived back from living on the continent and we readers just know he s despicable Frits keeps trying to put his finger on what s wrong with this questionable, seemingly affable person, but never quite realizes what it is.Anyway it s quite a convoluted plot with Frits turning up trumps, despite having to do some quick thinking and fancy leg work.I loved those powerful mothers with their networks pulling strings and handing out advice behind the scenes.A humorous regency romance that hides a wealth of information about the expectations of the day, English laws, law making, and family responsibilities.A Kensington Books ARC via NetGalley The Most Eligible Lord in London The Lords of London Series 1Ella Quinnhttps www.facebook.com EllaQuinnAutRelease date 03 31 2020Publisher

serious about marriage as long as she will be his bride My review Will he be able to win her trust before it is too late This tale is a slow burn romance as even if Frits recognizes from the beginning Adeline to be the right lady for him, he has his work cut out at his feet because of his previous year s behavior.He is a man easily smitten so when twice in a row he finds himself drawn to a

day life with its schemings and intrigues, Mrs Ella Quinn takes her time establishing her many protagonists and their games with each others.Why at time, I skipped some pages to go a bit faster in the plot as this book was a long wooing story even if the heroine was not aware of it, very naive of her.3.75 rounded up to 4 stars.I was granted an advance copy by the publisher Kensington Here is my true and unbiased opinion.https www.facebook.com 429830134272 In This Captivating New Regency Trilogy, Bestselling Author Ella Quinn Picks Up Where Her Beloved Worthingtons Series Left Off, As Three

wealthy, handsome, titled, and therefore touted as the catch of the season He made a grievous error last season that nearly saw him wed to a woman he realized was totally wrong for him This season he s trying again to find the right wife and thinks he s succeeded in Lady Adeline Wivenly Too bad she is also friends with the lady he made an enemy of last season.Lady Adeline Wivenly is determined to keep Frits at bay, despite the attraction she feels for him, out of a sense of loyalty to her friend Frits is equally determined to show her he s no rake and that he s serious about wanting a wife, as long as it s her.This was a bit boring for me to be honest I can understand loyalty to one s friends of course, but I just found Adeline to be judgmental, naive, and rather ditzy This story turned out to be an agonizingly slow burn and the amount of times Adeline questioned Frits intentions had me questioning her intelligence There were quite a few supporting characters as well and at times they were tough to keep straight I never did find much plot most of the narrative is bogged down in minutiae that did nothing to advance the story and moments of increased action and subplot that were added near the end just felt random and disjointed to me I also never quite understood why Frits was so taken with Adeline and felt they were unevenly matched and rather flat for much of the book and this never really changed to me Much of the book felt like added fluff for me, especially the chapters from the point of view of Adeline s other potential suitor This is a simple plot that could ve really worked as I don t think a ton of angst is needed to make a good book, but this one just wasn t really romantic to me and fell flat on the chemistry and steam Overall, this just didn t work for me and was rather a slog to get through I m not sure if I ll continue the series.I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own Series The Lords of

, Lord Littleton decided to be different than the Littleton males who came before him They all put off marriage until they absolutely had to marry in order to fill their nurseries Frits has decided he s ready and he s going to embrace love and marriage with open arms Granted, he really screwed things up last season he didn t mean to he just panicked Now, it is a new season and he s back to try again Will society accept him back after what he did Goodness, he surely hopes so Especially after he sees a pair of soft gray eyes that glitter like silver Oh my, he is totally smitten Is the previous season already repeating itself before it has even begun Lady Adeline Wivenly has just arrived in London for her first season London might prove to be exciting and interesting, but she d far rather be in the country She quickly makes four good friends Lady Dorie Calthorp, Lady Augusta Vivers, Miss Featherton, and Miss Stern The ladies all make pledges to protect each other throughout the season especially from rogues Adeline is especially wary because her brother was an infamous rake and she isn t going to trust any man she even thought might be a rake Especially that handsome, intriguing man she had just met the one who broke her friend Dorie s heart last season.Everyone who knows Frits and Adeline knows they were made for each other Frits knows they were made for each other Adeline no, she doesn t think so She doesn t trust Frits as far as she can see him and he hurt her friend, so she ll be polite because she has to be, but she ll also be aloof and cool to him And she is But when she overhears another woman plotting to trap Frits into marriage, her sense of honor just won t allow her to ignore it She has to warn him.I hope you ll read and enjoy this story as much as I did There is humor, intensity, romance, and a healthy dose of a large and lovable canine The whole thing is just a fun read that will keep you flippin those pages as fast as you can.I
