Narrator: Carmen Rose
Date Read: Length: 12 hrs and 18 mins
Genre: Historical, Romance
Eva Leigh makes her Avon debut with the first book in her smart and sexy Wicked Quills of London series!
Eleanor Hawke loves a good scandal. And readers of her successful gossip rag live for the exploits of her favorite subject: Daniel Balfour, the notorious Earl of Ashford. So when the earl himself marches into her office one day and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades…What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake?
Daniel has secrets and if The Hawk’s Eye gets wind of them, a man’s life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves? But Daniel never expected the sharp mind and biting wit of the beautiful writer, and their desire for each other threatens even his best laid plans.
But when Eleanor learns the truth of his deception, Daniel will do anything to prove a romance between a commoner and an earl could really last forever.

Read It Rate It Review: Oh how I love a clever unusual leading lady and Forever Your Earl delivers on that in spades! Eleanor was a downright delight to read. She was unusual for her time but I truly believe that women like her existed. Even if just out of necessity. Daniel was a great match for her in every way and I enjoyed his journey to accepting the strong woman that she was. This was just a really good story that made me swoon!
Narrated By Carmen Rose/Length: 12 hrs and 18 mins
Carmen nailed the narration of Eleanor and Daniel. She really brought out the slight differences in class and station. This was a really great listen!

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
