Editorial Reviews

Review

“Utterly charming.” (NYT bestselling author Julia Quinn)

A pair of appealing, rather unlikely protagonists finally sort things out in this sexy, funny title that resolves things a bit too neatly but is still delightfully entertaining (Library Journal)

TO WED A WICKED EARL is a charming, fun read that kept me up several nights. The secondary characters add humor as do some of the situations in which the hero and heroine are embroiled. (Romance Reviews Today)

TO WED A WICKED EARL is an engaging and charming Regency historical romance. Light, frothy, and humorous, TO WED A WICKED EARL sparkles. (Romance Readers Connection)

Parker’s characters are so endearing and the sexual tension so high that readers will be enraptured by the second installment of her Bride Hunt Ball series. (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

Ms. Parker has written a delightful read with sparkling characters, especially Charlotte. She is a riot with her witty and clever conversations with herself. Then add the dialogue between Charlotte and Adam and a slightly nutty grandmother and you have a winning combination. (Fresh Fiction)

You’d be foolish to miss this book! (Rakehell Productions)

From the Back Cover

He's on the hunt for a bride . . .

Adam Faramond, Earl of Rothbury, needs to find a wife—immediately!—or his beloved grandmother will leave him penniless. But Adam, an unrepentant rake, would reform for only one woman, the woman he's lusted after—and loved—for years. It's rather unfortunate, then, that Miss Charlotte Greene would never consent to be the blushing bride of a rogue . . . or so he thinks.

Charlotte believes that the earl, the only man whose touch leaves her trembling, would never want a woman like her. Weary of her wallflower ways, Charlotte decides that a friendship with the earl just might give her the excitement she desires. Keeping their true feelings hidden, she and Adam plan a sham ceremony to placate the dowager. But when the "marriage of convenience" takes an unexpected turn, will Charlotte and her wicked earl finally reveal their irresistible, unforgettable love—and delight in a lifetime of passion?

I read the sample before getting the book and was greatly disappointed at how it turned out.
Bookworm
Her ability to do so while adding light humor and a great deal of interactions between the main characters makes this another great book worth reading.
Tete-a-tete
I wanted so much to like the characters, but I think I ended up liking the idea of the author's story rather than what the author actually wrote.

Having read and loved, Olivia Parker's debut book, At the Bride Hunt Ball, I was eagerly awaiting her latest offering and I was not disappointed. I loved, loved, loved Lord Rothbury. He was humourous and sweet and romantic and arrogant and vulnerable and kind despite having a bad reputation. Having read the whole book, I understood why he acted as he had and why he felt that Charlotte would never marry him.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it was funny and entertaining. The romance felt genuine and the relationship between Rothbury and Charlotte wasn't rushed, but grew as the book went on. I finished the book feeling happy and cannot wait for the next book by the author, Lady Rosalind's story, perhaps?

I was eagerly awaiting this book after the author's first work, Bride Hunt Ball. Even the premise of the story sounded intriguing, and the day I got it I couldn't wait to pick it up. Unfortunately, I really had a hard time actually getting all the way through the story. While the concept was good, the execution was poor and the characters hard to like. The plot was weak, but what I really struggled with were all the jumps the author made in the story's time line. The first chapter was great, but then the second chapter jumped to a year later, and the third to a few months after that. Then the fourth to a week or so after that. It honestly felt as if the author wrote four starts to the book and then mashed them together. The characters seemed to change, especially the heroine. She seemed sweet and shy at the beggining, but then quickly had the nerve to break into the hero's house. She only knew of the hero's horrible reputation, but pushed all that aside pretty quickly to be his friend. However, we were never given the chance to see how their friendship developed. The author just does a time jump in between chapters and throws in a sentences describing a few meetings between them. The chapters that are actually consistent in a time sequence are pretty good, I just wish that their changing relationship had been more focued throughout the book so that we could really discover and see its development between the two charachters more fully.

I was really disappointed after waiting so long for this book. It had the potential to be really great, and I found it fairly mediocre. I wanted so much to like the characters, but I think I ended up liking the idea of the author's story rather than what the author actually wrote. The book was to disjointed for me to see a clear progression of their romance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After reading At the Bride Hunt Ball, I knew I just had to get my hands on this novel. Olivia Parker made a great debut with that novel, thus my high expectation of this one. To Wed a Wicked Earl wasn't really what I was expecting. Charlotte Greene was just a dull character from beginning to end. I expected her to put a bit more effort towards her relationship with Adam Faramond. Everything seemed to be handed to her on a nice silver platter. Adam was pretty much the same. At first his character was the congenial/wicked kind. Towards the middle/end of the novel, Parker gives Adam Faramond greater depth but doesn't really pull through with developing his feelings or show how he healed from his emotional pain. I feel like this novel was written half-heartedly. The characters were underdeveloped and everything seemed rushed even though the novel was almost 400 pages long. I hope her next novel turns out better. I still have high hopes for this author.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The plot was good. Writing...not so good. I was disappointed with how little the author shows growth in the relationship between main characters. Like another reviewer said, the story kept jumping over months at a time. I HATED the fact that we never get to see how they first met and why the hero ever fell in love with the heroine. All we know is that from the get go he's loved her for years...why? How did they meet? When did he know he loved her? We never find this out. I kept thinking every time I turned the page that she would explain SOMETHING, but it never happened. I think the thing that makes me the most angry with this book was that it was such a waste. It really could have been a great book--really great.

I loved, loved,loved this book. I couldn't finish it fast enough. I had not realized this was a sequel to another, but I didn't need to have read it to enjoy this one. Charlotte is so...Charlotte. I have rarely read of a heroine so unsure of herself before. She is funny also and forgiving, probably when she shouldn't be. Adam, or Rothbury, is yummy. That is really all you can say about him. He's one of those heroes you can picture in your head, striding about all long legged like Brad Pitt from the old days. And he is hilarious. I loved the scene where he got conked on the head and so many others besides. This book is full of hilarity and heart-warming moments. Charlotte's mother is a great side character and the villians are just sorry souls. Charlotte & Roth's story is sweet and hilarious, &, at times, frustrating. You want to whack Charlotte at times for being so dense, but she is very naive. Rothbury is the same in some ways. Why doesn't he just tell her his feelings from the beginning? But that would've taken away from everything, probably. His grandmother is great. I knew she was conniving from the beginning. I'm looking forward to more books from Parker and hope they are as entertaining as this one!
