Last Night with the Earl by Kelly Bowen
Narrator: Ashford McNab
Date Read: September 25, 2018
Genre: Historical, Romance
After Waterloo, Eli Dawes, Earl of Rivers, was presumed dead—and would have happily stayed that way. He's no longer the reckless young man he once was, and only half as pretty. All he wants is to hide his scars away in his country home. But when he returns home and tries to sneak into his old bedroom in the middle of the night, he's shocked to find someone already there.
Rose Hayward remembers Eli as an arrogant rake who helped her late fiancé betray her. Finding him stealing into the house currently rented by Haverhall School for Young Ladies doesn't correct her impression. Her only thought is to get him to leave immediately. Yet the tension between them is electric, and her painter's eye can't help but admire him, scars and all. He might be back from the dead, but now Rose will do anything to make him feel truly alive.

Quick Thoughts: Oh Eli and Rose! What a great save each other story! I had all the feelings during this one: laughter, cheering, OMGoshing, fist pumping, crying, and swooning. This is definitely one of my favorite listens of the year! Plus I want a novella for the sort of side couple. Just saying 🙂
Audio Narrated by Ashford McNab whom I love dearly. She brought all the characters to life with all the spunk and brooding necessary 🙂 I highly recommend this series on audio!
