Author: Virginia Heath
Publication Date: 1st April 2020
Publisher: Mills & Boon
His heart is a fortress… And she’s trespassing!
After losing all he holds dear in a horrific fire, Max Aldersley, Earl of Rivenhall, shuns the world—until he catches Effie Nithercott digging holes on his estate! He banishes the intrepid archaeologist and the unsettled feelings she rouses within him. But she returns even more determined and infuriatingly desirable than before! He wonders just how deep she’s prepared to dig—so far she’ll reach the man beneath his scars?
Redeeming the Reclusive Earl is a Mills & Boon title. Boy was I in for a surprise with this one. A pleasant, naughty , swoony surprise of a story. I picked up a Mills & Boon after ages and was happy to have read this story with its clean, simple and historical timeline. The character of Effie and Max are what I wanted to loose myself in especially after leaving the last book I picked up in the middle as it literally brought me down in spirits.
Effie is an archaeology enthusiast at a time when women are only for rearing offspring and having tea parties. Max is recovering from a life threatening accident which has left him scarred in more than just his mind. A vast estate set on ancient ruins and the brooding earl is what keeps Effie, a yesteryear nerd going in all parts of her lonely life.
Read this book if you like your romance historical – with swoon worthy moments, a dash of historical ruins, some dry sense of humor all from a kick ass heroine whose way ahead of her time.A perfect story to spend a day lazing around the pool or park.
When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Despite that, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
