Romance builds slowly which was perfect. I loved Matthew and his caring heart and the love he had for his mom. There is a villain, really more than one. The cousin was a spineless twit and I know he was in a bad shape financially, but I thought at times he showed more grit than his character lead us to believe he possessed.
There was lovemaking, outside of marriage, maybe rated 3.5-4 out of 5 heat level. I enjoyed the character's from the previous books make an appearance and added to the story. I don't feel it is necessary to read the previous books in the series as the author explains the evils of the city.
We get an HEA, some of the secondary character's needed to have more depth though, no cheating and no cliffhanger. I am not going into the premise as many have explained it, just what you may get out of reading it. (ljb)
In Rescuing the Earl we follow Nathaniel’s older brother, Tristan Hawke, the Earl of Adair. His black temper has given him a reputation and also a burden—carrying on the legacy of an unloving father whose dark temperament continues on in his eldest son.
To keep the one thing in his life that matters most--a property that gives him solace and peace but that is entailed to someone else if Tristan doesn’t marry by his next birthday--Tristan has proposed to a shrewish woman, Lady Samantha. He is determined that her own bad nature is the only one tough enough to withstand the wrath of Tristan’s darkest moments.
Then, he literally runs into the widowed Grace and her young son Matthew. They are fleeing a devious relative who plots Matthew’s demise in order to inherit his title and estate. Tristan finds himself compelled to help them and, in the process, drawn more and more to the lovely widow and her delightful son.
As with other books in this series, there are complications connected with the social issues that plaque the London of the era. As a reader I was intrigued by the blossoming relationship between Grace and Tristan and anxious to see how they would surmount the hurdles that entangled their lives. The characters were interesting and complex, as was their relationship. If historical romance is your cup of tea, I highly recommend Rescuing the Earl.
You know, the story isn't that complicated. All the rehashing gets really old, really fast.
The characters and situations in this novel are very well done. Grace is a standout for me. Watching her growth from an unsure, but sensitive young mother to a woman who will risk all to keep her son safe was satisfying. Matthew, her son was a delight. And Tristan...just wow. His struggle to overcome his explosive temper and become someone as far removed from the person that his father had tried to make him was moving. His gentleness with Grace and Matthew and his work for the poor was inspiring. The harsh realities of the poor during this time was eye-opening. I highly recommend this book, and this series, for anyone wanting a good historical read!
This is a stand alone book that can be read without having read the other books in the series, but is even better if you have read them in order.

An absorbing read until the revealing of the much desired happy ever after. Can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel but I highly recommend you read the series in order, you won't be disappointed.
