The Earl of Darby (Wicked Earl’s Club) (Wicked Earl’s Christmas) is the fourth book in the Once Upon a Widow Series by Aubrey Wynne. I am really loving this historical romance series- they just seem to get better and better with each new release. There is plenty of drama, action, a little danger, some humorous moments, suspense, second chances, secrets, lies, intrigue, historical detail, passion, a little mystery, and of course- a wonderful romance.
Ms. Wynne proves herself to be an incredibly good storyteller- painting vivid imagery full of wonderful attention to detail. She brings her stories to life, giving her reader a very immersive experience. There was quite a lot going on in this book- but it was all superbly orchestrated into a smooth, captivating, and very enjoyable read.
Like with all her books, the characters are really well crafted- becoming ‘real’ individuals. This gives the whole story an extra level of believability. They were so easy to like, or detest (as in the case of a certain character)- again proving Ms. Wynne’s writing talents. Being able to get a reader to invest in some characters, while detesting others- is no easy task. But Ms. Wynne manages this, easily.
So, if you love regency romance, historical detail, wonderful characters, and a story that will pull you in and engage you from beginning to end- then this is definitely the book for you!
One of my favourites, for sure!
Thank you, Ms. Wynne!
