After giving him the cut direct in a London ballroom, she finds herself running into him everywhere she goes, and fighting a forbidden attraction.

My Thoughts: 

The Earl’s Return (Marriage Mart Mayhem, Book 7) by Callie Hutton is a fantastic Regency Historical Romance. Can be read as a stand alone. Set in 1819 London. What a great finale to the “Marriage Mart Mayhem”! I’m a bit saddened to see this series go, but all good things must come to an end.

Well written, steady paced, with engaging, well-developed and captivating characters. The storyline is full of mayhem, passion, scandal, adventure, secrets, betrayal, forbidden love, second chances, healing, forgiveness, manipulation, and finding and holding onto that special HEA.

This is the story of Darius, the Earl of Redgrave, who fled London, and his betrothed, in order to marry another, under suspicious circumstances. Now he’s a widower, he’s come back to London, seeking a wife. Lady Mary, whose sister was jilted at the altar by Darius, four years prior, is now in search of another wife. He never expected to see Mary, again.

Can Darius and Mary get past the past, and the mistrust to find a HEA? Or will they lose all to secrets, deception and lies?

“The Earl’s Return” is an unforgettable, and captivating tale with re-appearing characters, a wide range of emotions, interwoven characters and a great Regency Romance.

Once again, Ms. Hutton will steal the reader’s heart with her tanalizling, and unforgettable characters. She is an amazing storyteller who writes masterfully and brilliantly. I adore her stories! If you have not read “The Marriage Mart Mayhem” I’d strongly recommend you start now. Another great Regency Romance by Ms. Hutton!
I can’t wait to see what awaits the reader next. I absolutely loved “The Earl’s Return”! A satisfying and enjoyable read!
