Miss Jane Featherstone has long felt a tender admiration for Lord Slade, but she and her father, a leading Whig in the House of Commons, are poor as the proverbial church mice, and Jane believes herself to be hopelessly plain. Her cousin and dearest friend, Lady Sarah Bertram, however, is beautiful, extremely wealthy, and about to be presented to society.
Small wonder Lord Slade should focus his interest on Lady Sarah.
As if that weren’t distressing enough to Jane, Slade proceeds to ask for her help in courting her cousin.
Heartbroken in spite of her conviction that a poor plain Jane could never be the wife of an earl, Jane agrees to help, on the condition that Slade refrain from offering for Lady Sarah until he can honestly say that he loves her.
As Slade finds himself in competition with the many young men swarming around the gorgeous Lady Sarah, he spends more time than he should with Jane, with whom he shares many political and intellectual interests, while Sarah seems rather taken with Slade’s younger brother, Captain David St. John. And Jane finds herself seriously considering the worth of a successful businessman and would-be politician, Mr. Cecil Poppinbotham.
Add an inside look at period electioneering, an amusing cast of supporting players, and the support of Slade’s long-time friends Harry and Alex, and you have another entertaining tale of life, love, and politics under the Regency.
Bereft of beauty as well as fortune, the exceedingly plain Miss Jane Featherstone has failed to attract any suitor during her three Seasons. Rather than be a burden to her brother and his obnoxious wife, Miss Featherstone vows to accept the first man who asks—even though she's always worshipped a lord who's far above her touch. . .
Lord Slade must marry an heiress in order to honor the deathbed vow he made to his father, and he needs Miss Featherstone's help in wooing her beautiful cousin. After her initial anger, Miss Featherstone agrees to his scheme, telling him she's doing so because she admires his Parliamentary record of humanitarian legislation and his reverence for truth. But the more he's with the two cousins, the more attracted he becomes to Miss Featherstone. What's a man of his word to do? Break a vow to a beloved father—or follow his heart with Miss Featherstone?
As we would expect from the title we have a young Earl who needs a wife with a fortune but he is drawn to Jane, a plain young miss who lacks one. The man needs to woo and win her cousin who is not only a beauty, but comes with a very large dowry. Our hero needs the help of the dowerless miss to woo the beauty, but of course he falls for our plain Jane in the process.
Will he continue to try to win the favor of the beautiful and wealthy cousin or turn his attentions to Jane in spite of her lack of wealth?
As usual with Cheryl Bolen books this is an enjoyable regency romp. I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. The sensuality is mild in this sweet regency story.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
'The Earl, The Vow, and the Plain Jane is the second book in The Lords Of Eton series by Cheryl Bolen.
I was lucky to have reviewed the first book in this series so I looked forward to reading this second book. I was not disappointed as I begin to read Lord Slade is in need of a bride with a very large dowery and as he has political ambitions and has made a vow to his deceased father to pay the many debts and restore the estates and to see that his sisters have a chance to have their comeouts into society. He has chosen a very wealthy heiress called Sarah and asks her cousin and companion Miss Jane Featherstone for her aid in getting to court her cousin.. I loved reading this book as it was very well researched and I just loved the Name she choose for one of the characters. the wealthy Mr Poppinbotham was well described and he reminded me much of Mr. Collins in Pride and Prejudice. This book had the main Hero and Heroine from the pervious book, which made the story doubly enjoyable. I won't say to much more about the plot as it will spoil the story for those who have not enjoyed reading it yet. I recommend this book to all those who love a great historical romance.
