An Inconvenient Earl by Julia London ~ a Review

by MK French

Emma Clark's husband left on an expedition over a year ago, and people are starting to assume that the Earl of Dearborn is dead. This doesn't suit her at all, as his family will swoop in and kick her out if he's declared dead. The Earl of Marlaine has traveled to England from Egypt to give the countess her dead husband's watch, and feels there's more to her than her party girl exterior. He is then drawn into her ruse.

While we have references to Wesloria and characters from prior books Julia London has written, it's not necessary to have read them first. This is Emma's and Luka's story, focusing on their emotions and the effort of hiding the truth. Emma is flighty and ditzy, though some of that is forced to distract Luka from telling her that her husband is dead. She isn't heartless, but with the freedom of living without a cruel and controlling man, she fell into the deceit and didn't want it to end. Luka was fascinated by and attracted to Emma, so he went along with it and fell in love. They love each other, which is easily obvious to everyone else. The big conflict between them is the truth and the discord in Wesloria that Luka tried to ignore so he could stay with Emma. The two eventually get their happily ever after, but it's a comedy of errors along the way.
