Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Pippa Harrington has one passion in life, and it isn’t Gregory Sherwood, Lord Westdale. To refine her sugar-sculpting skills, Pippa wants to travel to Paris to study under master chef Monsieur Perot, but Pippa’s stepfather is determined to marry her off to the odious Broderick Hawthorne. Disguised as a man, Pippa escapes from her home only to run into Gregory while traveling through the rain-drenched English countryside. Now, to avoid an arranged marriage with Broderick, Pippa must rely on Gregory for help by pretending to be his valet. Stuck at a country-house party with Gregory and forced to live in close proximity as his servant, Pippa quickly discovers there might be a very good reason all the other ladies in the town have fallen for him. Kramer continues her House of Brady series by focusing on the eldest sibling, and her fanciful characters and whimsical plotting make her humorous Regency-set historicals an easy literary transition for fans of Julia Quinn. --John Charles

Remember a couple months back I got a chance to read Loving Lady Marcia, well Kieran Kramer has continue the House of Brady saga in The Earl is Mine. This time we will be focusing on Gregory Sherwood, the Earl of Westdale. The oldest son of Michael & Caroline Sherwood, the Marquess & Marchioness of Brady.

Gregory tries to run away from his problems after catches the girl he was about to propose to with his best friend. What better way than to escape your troubles and travel to America, because that solves everything.

A year later he comes back, still a tad bit angry with Lady Pippa Harrington with her part with the debacle. However, he starts to notice her and how she has blossom into a fetching young lady. Yet, he's not ready to settle down with anyone.

Pippa doesn't want a husband of any sort especially Gregory, but wants to be a sugar sculptor. A few things happen that causes her to flee her home and try to get to Paris on her own. Yet, fate intervenes and she ends up in the care of Gregory and needs to pretend to be his valet. Oh dear, masquerading as a valet, what could possibly go wrong?

I adore this story. Kieran Kramer's books are always light and fun with the reoccurring message of "love changes everything." The Earl is Mine is no exception to her message. I have to say it was a lot of fun to see Pippa playing valet and trying to hide her true feelings for Gregory. This is not a story to dissect and think about the deep meaning of the story, but just to entertain. Sometimes you just want a story that entertains and this would be one of those story. So, if you are looking for a diverting fun story with a Brady flare, you might want to read The Earl is Mine.

I am absolutely enjoying Kieran Kramer's House of Brady series so far! The Earl is Mine brought us into the life of Gregory Sherwood, Lord Westdale. Ms. Kramer gave us an a real tortured, reformed rake. I loved how she let us see the soft side to him, while he fought his feelings for every one who was important to him, especially Lady Pippa Harrington. One couldn't help, but root for the lovesick feminist. She was strong, but vulnerable. She was smart, but a little clumsy when it came to the expressing her feelings. The hero and heroine were both easy to love and the fact that Ms. Kramer gave us other characters to enjoy and loathe made this second story of this series worth every minute spent reading it.

I just love Kieran Kramer's books. They are a laugh out loud read that you just can't put down!

The hero Gregory Sherwood carries a dark secret and Lady Pippa Harrington has no secrets. It was very humorous how Pippa wants to go to Paris and learn how to transform sugar into masterpieces. They obviously get together in the end.

Kieran has a gift for making her stories seem fresh and new and not like any other story teller out there. She's quickly become my favorite author.

I recently read The Earl with the Secret Tattoo, which I enjoyed and gave a 4 star review. I was so disappointed in this book. I found it frivolous and ludicrous at the same time. I'm not sure I'd buy another book from this author now, which is a pity. I'm not sure if it is pressure from publishers or the public that is leading historical romance authors to write in such a modern fashion. I truly don't like it because if I want modern, I buy it and expect realistic scenarios. However when I buy historicals I like a degree of authenticity even though I'm not slavish about minor details. I read a review today where the reviewer criticised the author for speaking about a Christmas tree, which was historically inaccurate. That wouldn't bother me but there were so many glaring problems with this book.

***Spoiler alert****

Firstly the h dresses as a man and if she'd been caught it would have meant instant ruination in those days. In this book it wasn't a problem and it was all a bit of a joke. The h wanted to go off to Paris to become a sugar sculptor and came up with a ridiculous scheme involving using the H as an excuse for 6 months. The whole story was implausible and wouldn't have worked. If you are a stickler for titles then you'll also have a problem because the h is called a lady when she couldn't have been one as her father was a baronet. The way the h carried on (being cheeky and obnoxious to other staff and guests) as the H's valet was completely ridiculous and would never ever have been tolerated. The H and h engaged in so much inappropriate behaviour without the slightest commitment to each other.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Gregory Sherwood, Lord Westdale carries a dark secret and a fervent ambition to be a respected architect. Lady Pippa Harrington really has no secrets but she does have an equally ambitious goal to be regarded as a master at the creation of sugar sculptures. Everyone applauds Gregory's ambition and scoffs at Pippa's, which only pushes her into a more determined frame of mind.

Gregory feels the obligation to marry but his first foray into that adventure was a disaster so now he is taking his time. Yet time is something Pippa does not have, as she wants to go to Paris and learn from the masters how to transform sugar into masterpieces. The obstacle for Gregory in finding a proper wife is his inability to see the gem in front of him and quit pursing the unattainable. He must also let go of the guilt he bears at feeling inadequate for the role and title he bears as the eldest son. For Pippa being female is her deterrent but ever ingenious she comes up with a plan that she swears is not only brilliant but also borderline genius. When she does take off it is Gregory that stops her under the guise of keeping her safe but realizing that the feelings he has for her or not one of a guardian but a man pursuing a fascinating woman. Yet in the end, who is hiding their feelings and who is just hiding under a poorly scripted set of clothing.

Kiernan Kramer weaves a tale of intrigue, seduction, and romance that every reader finds captivating and rewarding for the romantic in all of us
