I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of the book. I loved that the spinster was an intelligent woman who ran her own business and (secretly) made her own fortune. She was determined that she was going to stay single rather than be wed for her money. So, along comes a newly-minted Earl who she finds herself attracted to. Unfortunately, he desperately needs her money. A merry chase and many mix-ups follow.

With just a little more effort, this book would rate a 5 star review. Little things really started to annoy me. One instance: everyone addresses the Earl as 'Your Grace.' He would have to be a Duke to be addressed as such. Another is that the heroine, as a midwife, knows very well how babies are made. But, she continues to have sex with him and refuse his offers of marriage. And, the one that really bothered me the most: The late Earl had no children or grandchildren. But, he CHOSE one of his nephews to become his successor. The one chosen was the third son of his sister. From everything that I have ever read, titles do not pass in this manner. Property that is not entailed can be willed to anyone. Titles and property that belong to that title must be passed to the nearest in the direct line. If there is no one, that title ceases to exist and the property then goes to the Crown.

I really like the author's writing style and I did enjoy the book. With a little research into her chosen era, her books will be perfect.

Way too many errors that take you out of the story.

1) The laws of inheritance as to titles were / are very strict. The old Earl would NOT have been "choosing the heir that will inherit his estate and title", announcing the family will know who it is when his will is read. His (nonexistent) money, maybe, but title, no. It certainly wouldn't have gone to a nephew who was the third son in his family.

2) Earls are not addressed as "Your Grace" doing so constantly was very distracting and off putting.

3) Was Dru her paid companion or her maid? Those were two very distinctly different roles / jobs, with different social standing.

4) He's laying in bed, she's standing over him, his his lips descend on hers? (I would overlook this, but his "descend on hers" multiple times.)

5) She leaves to get her father a wrap, but comes back in after eavesdropping to adjust the wrap he let slip (the one she went to get). Things like this happen several times.

6) The Earl has a broken leg and needs to be carried to lunch, but by that evening, it's being suggested that he and she should take a walk in the garden...

This had the potential to be a very good story, and the author has a lot of potential, but she needs to do more research, and she needs someone to edit for continuity in her storyline.

If you love spinster romances - of the historical or Regency bent - then, this book is for you! A true blue spinster has no room in her life for annoying gentlemen who can't keep up with her intelligence, wit, nor her penchant for making money. Yes, she has her own business! That is until she "meets" her new neighbor, a decidedly sexy earl who just happens to fall off his horse right in front of her. Well, to be honest she did shoot him first. What I love about "The Spinster and the Earl" is the sparkling dialogue between the hero and heroine. Yes, we've seen this sort of plot before, but so what? It's so much fun to watch the sparks fly between these two that you'll be rooting for them right to the end. A rollicking good read!The Spinster and The Earl (Book 1 Gentlemen of Honor)

Just finished this first book of the Gentlemen of Honor series by Beverly Adam and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The book was a fast and satisfying read , the writing well done and easy flowing and the characters in the plot lovable .

The heroine, a die hard spinster , was believable and immediately likable. The hero, a former soldier and third son , who due to a bit of luck inherited a title and land, was from the get go a great counterpart to the heroine.

This is not a very deep going book, but a feel good book with all the markings of a good regency novel. A nasty villain, eccentric family members and a bit fairy magic make this book a solid 4 star. There are a couple of love scenes between the h/h , which are not happening behind closed door, but are also not too detailed - for me , well done.

My only negative comment would be , that I wished the author would have given us , the reader , more detail of some
of the side characters , which I hope , will be given when the series of the Gentlemen of Honor continues.

Over all , I can recommend this book and I will look for the continuation of this series.

A fairly well written typical bed and wed romance. Background research seems well done. Only giving it 3 stars due to a lack of subplots for more interest. Seems like the author was churning out a basic plot for a mass market.

This romance enchanted me like I was the one holding the lucky coin! With lush and descriptive writing, the author brings her story to life. The hero and heroine were unusual and the setting was unexpected. And who doesn't love a good house party, with all the intrigue and scandal lurking around every corner, lol? This book has the feel and tone of a true Historical and I can't wait to read the next in the series!
