A Wicked Earl’s Widow (Once Upon A Widow Book 2) by Aubrey Wynne – Review by Emily Brockschmidt

The Wicked Earl's WidowThe Wicked Earl’s Widow by Aubrey Wynne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aubrey Wynne is at it again with “A Wicked Earl’s Widow,” the second book in the Once Upon a Widow series. I unfortunately read these books out of order, but I don’t feel it took away from the book at all. Each story, while having some overlapping characters, are basically standalones and fine to read in any order that I’ve seen so far. In this book we meet Lady Eliza who was forced to marry, as most young women of more noble blood are, Conrad the Count of Sunderland. At his passing soon after their marriage, she is left pregnant and praying that she is safe from her abusive father. Years pass and she is in danger, so she flees to her cousin Grace’s home. Along the way she meets the handsome Nathaniel, Viscount of Pendleton. While Eliza’s story is not an entirely happy one, the story that Aubrey Wynne has created is lovely. I really enjoyed reading about this era and how high society worked back then. The main characters are such a treat to read about even down to the appropriately named blood hound, Cyrano. Nathaniel is a proud, brave man who will do anything to protect those he cares for and makes for a wonderful hero. Overall, a great book to read! Parts of it were a bit upsetting, but it only goes to show the resilience of the characters. So, I give “A Wicked Earl’s Widow” five stars!
