For me How to Entice an Earl was a little…lukewarm. ~ Under the Covers
This is the last in the Ugly Ducklings trilogy, featuring the last unmarried cousin Lady Madeline Essex and Christian Monteith, Earl of Gresham. Although this is the last book in the trilogy, you don’t need to have read the others to understand what is happening you just won’t know the background stories of some of the characters in the book.
For me How to Entice an Earl was a little…lukewarm. I liked the main characters well enough; they seemed to go together nicely, but I found it hard to stir myself up to think any more then “Aw that’s nice”, which unfortunately didn’t really make it a very exciting read.
However, maybe I am being too harsh, this is a light historical, it has a pleasant romance and I am glad that all the “Ugly Ducklings” a horrible nickname given to the three cousins got their own happily-ever-afters.
I don’t think this will be a trilogy I would reread or even perhaps remember very clearly in the future but I would read another Manda Collins book, she writes well and has created a fun and romantic if not particularly memorable trilogy.
