The tension between Rose and Eli is electric, and Rose's 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.
In the appealing second Devils of Dover Regency, Bowen brings together two wounded souls who cannot heal without each other ... Skillfully crafted with intriguing characters, this historical romance will appeal to fans of Mary Balogh.
Last Night With the Earl is a story about acceptance, forgiveness, redemption and most of all, the importance of looking beyond the surface to find the truth, to the heart and soul of another person. Rose is a very forthright young woman and an extremely talented artist whose fierce championship of beauty in all its many forms makes her an original, insightful heroine ... Ms. Bowen skilfully enables the reader to see many things through Rose’s eyes, and makes some very powerful observations through her PoV ... The story is well written, Eli and Rose are likeable and fully-rounded and their relationship is tender and sensual...a less than excellent book by Kelly Bowen is still head-and-shoulders above many of the other current historical romance offerings out there, and I’m still giving it a cautious recommendation; it’s just a shame the final few chapters were such a let-down.
