No Earls Allowed by Shana Galen

Date Read: March 6th 2018

Genre: Historical, Romance

It is a truth universally acknowledgedthat a lady can do anything a man can do:backwards and in high-heeled dancing slippers.

Lady Juliana, daughter of the Earl of St. Maur, needs all the help she can get. She's running a ramshackle orphanage, London's worst slumlord has illicit designs on her, and her father has suddenly become determined to marry her off.

Enter Major Neil Wraxall, bastard son of the Marquess of Kensington, sent to assist Lady Juliana in any way he can. Lucky for her, he's handy with repairs, knows how to keep her and the orphans safe, and is a natural leader of men.

Unfortunately for both of them, the scandal that ensues from their mutual attraction is going to lead them a merry dance...

Read for Review (Publisher)

I started reading this book and couldn’t put it down. This is the second book in Shana Galen’s The Survivors series. You don’t need to have read the first one, but some of the characters in that book appear in this one.
The hero of this book is Neil Wraxall, a hero of the Napoleonic war and leader of Draven’s group that   we would call a special ops team. He is the bastard son of a Marquess but has always been recognized and provided for. He still has nightmares from the war and guilt that his half-brother died, and he survived. His father asks him to help his friend, the Earl St. Maur, bring his daughter home from the orphanage she runs.
Lady Juliana is devoted to the boys at the run down home she is determined to improve. The home is in Spitalfields and a crime lord runs the area. When Neil arrives, he learns the cook has quit, the building needs repairs and there is no food. To keep order and make repairs, he treats the boys like soldiers, giving them tasks to do. Lady Juliana is not sure about him being there but appreciates the help.

There is a lot more happening in this book, but it is not a story I will spoil. Lady Juliana has a reason for wanting to help children. I highly recommend this book and look forward to more of this series. Thank you to the author and publisher for giving me this ARC. No one has asked or required that I write this review.
