My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Wicked Earl’s Widow by Aubrey Wynne was an okay read, that for me, fell a little shot, but saved itself at the end.

Not my first read from this author, so I was looking forward to reading this novella. From this author’s persvoice works, that I quite enjoyed, this short story was a mixed feels read for me.

So let’s get into it shall we.

This book starts out nice, smooth and entertaining. As the story moves forward and we get more into that world and the plot, things start to take a weird turn when the love interest shows up. Normally at this point, the romance portion of the plot kicks in, and we get all the melty feels, and the heat. But, that wasn’t the case, it felt flat and for me, never formed a realistic connection. For a book that’s presented as romance heavy, and to not deliver, was a let down, and a bit disappointing.

Now not all was lost, as the ending was a little bit of a shocker, and I’m glad the author went there. That took guts and it saved this read for me. Outside of the ending, I did like the side plots and the side characters. It created a nice balance that helped with the lacking romance.

Overall the story was good, it had promising elements, and it did keep my attention. I just wish the romance was just as strong, because it would have rounded out this story into something magical. But just remember that what I have problems with, you might not, so please take my recommendation and my approval that you will find something to love about this historical fiction.

Happy Reading

A Wicked Earl’s Widow (Once Upon a Widow Series Book 2) by Aubrey Wynne is a historical romance story. It is told in multiple POV’s which I love as it gives you a much better understanding of who the characters are, where they come from and what made them who they are and what they are thinking. This drama filled story will keep you entertained and on your toes. There is secrets and lies, danger and intrigue, mystery and humour. The characters are all well developed and enjoyable and absolutely wonderful.
Eliza lost her husband but is still being tortured by her past and by the evil man who raised her. When her daughter and herself, are threatened she is forced to flee for their safety. Along the way she encounters an old woman that is being attacked and decides to help, which leads her to find refuge in the Pendleton estate. But unfortunately danger finds her and she is once again face to face with the viciousness and evil from her past.
If you like historical romances, with a bit of thrill to them then this is a book for you.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Wicked Earl’s Widow by Aubrey Wynne is the second book in her Once Upon a Widow series. It follows Eliza, the widow of the Earl of Sunderland. Since her husband’s death, she has been inundated with orders from her abusive father to remarry. She must decide what is best to do, for her own interests and those of her daughter Althea who she wishes to protect from her father and potential husband.
It’s an exciting story, as we are constantly concerned for Eliza and Althea’s safety. We see Eliza battling with the consequences of a lifetime of cruel treatment, and it is in a moment of unrestrained anger that she first encounters Nate. The positive relationship they have – his protectiveness and caring – is wonderful to read.
Although part of a series, this book works fine as a stand-alone. A vibrant regency romance, it pays homage to Gothic tropes but very much has the feel of a modern historical novel. Althea, for example, is a very vocal child and frequently caught up in the story’s action.
For me, this is a four star read. I’d recommend it to fans of historical romance who like stories with a bit of action and suspense.

A Wicked Earl’s Widow by Aubrey Wynne was a great 5 star read and is book 2 in the Once Upon A Widow series.

Eliza was raised by a very abusive father who used her to make money. When she married her husband she wasn’t sure what to expect but was surprised at how kind he was to her. He ends up dying in a riding accident while she was pregnant. She is now being threatened by her father and she fears for her and her daughters lives.

Eliza ends up fleeing to a cousins home, while on the journey there she ends up helping an old woman against an attack. This is where she also meets Nathaniel who is impressed with her actions.Nathaniel was drawn to Eliza and he brought her to his estate.

Eliza was a very strong woman, we get some LOL moments, action, suspense and so much more in this historical romance. I was pulled right in and didn’t want to stop reading until I was done. All of the characters added a great element to the story. Overall I really enjoyed Eliza’s story. This can be read as a stand alone. If you like historical romance you will love this book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Wicked Earl’s Widow, by Aubrey Wynne, is that second book in the Once Upon a Widow series. This historical romance was a dramatic read set to the Victorian era. These type of novels were my first reads into the romance realm and they still hold a place in my heart when it comes to this genre. Aubrey Wynne is a talented author and creates fabulous characters that stand apart and shine within their story. In this particular book, I immediately admired Eliza’s character. She’s strong despite the circumstances in her life and has morals that our outstanding to hold. Unfortunately, there is drama, suspense and intrigue within this story. Enter Nick who is about to shift Eliza’s world. The chemistry is apparent and perfectly blended into the story. The Wicked Earl’s Widow is a great read and I highly recommend.

5-Stars

A Wicked Earl’s Widow was an exciting and fast paced read. It is book two in this series and can be read as a standalone. The wonderful scenery of each setting is depicted very realistically and I had no problem envisioning the story. The characters were also detailed and fascinating. Both the protagonist and antagonist characters had major roles in the flow of the story. Eliza and Nate, who are the protagonists of this story, mad a beautiful romantic couple despite the tragedy that occurred in Eliza’s life. He was a blessing in disguise when he stumbled upon their coach. I loved reading this novel and look forward to reading more in this series.
