Earl of Harrington by Dawn Brower
The Wicked Earls’ Club
Defying Rogues, Book 1
March 27, 2018
Jonas Parker, the Earl of Harrington has no desire to marry. He rather enjoys being unencumbered, and a wife would complicate things. The Wicked Earls’ Club is his haven, and he isn’t ready to give it up for matrimony. His grandfather, the Duke of Southington wants nothing more than to see him wed and return to the fold. For that reason alone, he’ll avoid proper ladies and wedding bells.
Lady Marian Lindsay rather likes being a spinster and embraces her bluestocking ways. She’s studying to be a physician and wants to be a proper doctor. She longs to be taken seriously in the medical field, but her efforts go unnoticed. After careful deliberation she devises a scheme that is foolproof, but she needs the help of one of her father’s friends to make it happen.
Harrington is appalled at Marian’s request and refuses outright; however, she somehow manages to charm him into saying yes. Before he realizes it, he’s escorting her to Kent and a house party made of his worst nightmares. Propriety must be met at all costs because he will not be wed at the end of her expedition – or will he?

A solid historical romance with intrigue, drama, humor and the must HEA. Written in the time where men had advantages in society and women were given little say in their lives. Written so you could feel the frustrations of the main herorine, Marian, as she desires to become a doctor during a time period that wasn’t ready for a women doctor. The main characters were fun to read as swapped barbs with one another, learned more about each, and have their relationship develop. Good pacing of the story and the characters development as they realized that their chosen path was of many options open to them.
Note: Earl of Harrington is the last book of a multi-author coordinated project, The Wicked Earls’ Club (they are all standalones, so don’t feel you will be missing anything by skipping to book 12). It is also the first book of a brand-new series: Bluestockings Defying Rogues.
