Amelia Grey's third novel in The Rogues' Dynasty series, An Earl To Enchant, will capture the reader's attention from the beginning words of Lady Elder's letter to her grandson Lucas to the very end of the novel. An Earl To Enchant is brilliantly written, with delightful characters, descriptive prose, witty dialogue, with just the right touch of mystery and romance intertwined. Lucas Randolph Morgandale, the ninth Earl of Morgandale is at his country home, Valleydale, trying to escape from his cousins' machinations at trying to marry him off. Lacking anything to do, the Earl goes through his solicitor to have a courtesan sent to Valleydale. When Arianna Sweet appears at his door, the Earl is convinced she is the courtesan, yet she thinks he an ogre. Morgan quickly realises his mistake and inquires why she would be at his home. Arianna had been living in India with her father who was working with The Royal Apothecary Scientific Academy when he died. Arianna was told she was to go to Lady Elder at Valleydale should anything happen to him, so she followed his wishes, but she could not have known Lady Elder had passed away. Still recovering from a fever Arianna caught upon the ship, Morgan has her and her lady's maid, Beabe stay with them while he finds a suitable companion for her, and the person who comes to mind is Mrs. Constance Pepperfield. Constance will help Arianna set up a home in London, find a suitable companion, help her re-enter the London scene and find Mr. Warburton, who Arianna needs to see desperately, for Arianna has a secret only Beabe knows and it could cost all of them quite a lot. An Earl To Enchant is a novel that will definitely enchant the reader. The characters are charming, witty, and intelligent and one cannot help but want to know what is going to happen next. Grey weaves in Arianna's secret and adds a twist with Gibby, Sir Randolf Gibson, who will appear in her future Rogues' Dynasty series. An absolute delight to read, An Earl To Enchant is a novel readers will greatly enjoy.
