Lady Isabel Albright is beautiful, kind-hearted, and loves the country and her books. She longs for love and family—the kind her brother and her best friends have found. Accepting a wager with her brother, Weston, that if she loses, she has a season. Wager lost, she has to endure the ton. Poor Isabel is socially awkward and nervous, not one of the ton's darlings, and she suffers through humiliating events.
Her brother, being the overprotective type, asks his best friend Lord Traverna to help. Only two dances should help and maybe change her luck. Lord Traverna is a lost man . . . that's all it took to loose his heart! Can he walk away from the woman of his dreams? Will Isabel let the only man that makes her heart come alive like the best book in the world? Can true love break the bonds of the curse?
Alanna Lucas pulls the heartstrings in this love story! Truly an enjoyable read. This is what true romance is—falling in love with love!
My rating 41/2 stars
On a whim, Isabel’s brother asks his old friend, Tristram, Lord Trevena, the Earl of Longstone, for a favor. Just two dances, he begs, and Tristram reluctantly agrees. Tristram’s only in town for a short period of time and then it’s back to the country. The last thing he needs is to become entangled with a young woman and activating the dreaded family curse.
Tristram and Isabel dance together at the very next ball and sparks fly. Will Tristram let Isabel into his heart, the family curse ignored, or will he sacrifice his own happiness to save the life of the one woman who sweeps him off his feet?
This is my first book by Alanna Lucas and let me tell you, I can’t wait to read more! Lucas weaves such a gorgeous historical romance filled with descriptive imagery of Regency England. The characters were such fun and I enjoyed the way they interacted with Isabel and Tristram.
Note: this is part of a series (In His Arms) but you can read it as a standalone. Lucas does an impressive job filling in the gaps for new readers to her series and I plan to read the rest of the series.
Waltzing with the Earl is one of those swoon-worthy historical romances that melts my heart and the conflict (family curse) added the right amount of drama. Like Isabel, Tristram swept me off my feet and I wanted to dance with him long after I finished reading. A must read!
Favorite Character: Isabel. I loved everything about her from her insecurities to her love of books. She’s a bluestocking, through and through, and I must admit she reminds me of myself. She’d much rather be surrounded by books out in the country than attend yet another ball. I also loved the way she spoke her mind to Tristan, especially when he hurts her deeply.
“It did not matter what he did, nor how far he rode – his thoughts always strayed back to Isabel. He feared they always would.”
My Rating: 5+ stars
