Waiting For an Earl Like You by Alexandra Hawkins
Date Read: January 3rd 2017
Genre: Historical, Romance
LOVE ISN’T ALWAYS WHAT IT SEEMS. Justin Reeve Netherwood, Earl of Kempthorn—a.k.a. Thorn—has never cared much for his neighbor’s daughter. But his twin brother, Gideon, befriended the wild, reckless, and wholly inappropriate Miss Olivia Lydall in youth, and two have been close ever since. So when Olivia finds herself in a state of romantic conflict and seeks out Gideon for advice, he’s only too pleased to oblige. Only problem: The man Olivia is speaking to is Thorn. And now it’s too late for him to tell Olivia the truth…
Thorn always believed that Olivia was too smitten with Gideon for her own good. So what’s the harm in steering her away from him? But Thorn’s charade turns out to be anything but harmless once he begins to see Olivia for who she really is: A woman full of spirit and passion…and someone he can’t live without. But how can Thorn claim Olivia’s heart when their deepening connection—and burning desire—is built on lies and deceit?

He has never been sure of why Gideon left England. They are both attending a party at their parents’ country estate along with friends and family.
Olivia Lydall is also attending the party. She lives on the neighboring estate and has been friends with Gideon since childhood. Even as a child, Thorn, as the heir, was more reserved and somewhat envious of her friendship with his brother.
Lady Felstead, the twins’ mother, insisted Olivia, whose mother had died when she was very young, come to London with them as she wanted to help Olivia with her wardrobe.
In London, Thorn and Chance rent a house behind Olivia’s father’s townhouse to keep an eye on her until her father arrives. The garden has a gate between the two and Thorn takes advantage of that to see Olivia. But she thinks Gideon is the twin checking on her. Until the night Thorn escorts her home from a ball and her father opens the carriage door and finds them in a compromising position!
I don’t like plot spoilers, so you’ll have to read this wonderful book to find out if they do get their HEA. It’s a very good story.
