It's been over a year since Emma Clark's no-good husband left on an expedition. The Countess of Dearborn has played the abandoned wife, but people are beginning to presume the earl is dead, which doesn't suit Emma at all. Emma likes being head of household in Albert's absence and does her best to keep his family believing he is alive and well. She's thirty years old and finally having some fun. If the earl is in fact dead, his family is waiting in the wings to swoop in and throw Emma out, leaving her destitute.
Then along comes Luka Olivien, the Weslorian Earl of Marlaine. He's traveled all the way from Egypt, duty-bound to return to the countess her deceased husband's precious pocket watchonly to discover she doesn't know he's dead... Or does she? It's hard to tell. Luka catches glimpses of the desperate vulnerability beneath the party girl exterior and can't help being drawn into the beguiling countess's ruse.

I received an ARC of an Inconvenient Earl by Julia London through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. This book is the fourth book in her delightful A Royal Match series and while there are characters from other the other books in this one it could be read as a standalone. Emma Clark, Countess of Dearborn was thankful when her extremely nasty husband left to go exploring in Egypt. Later when a messenger arrived to let her know that he had died of a fever in Egypt she felt relieved, but then the messenger dropped dead and she was the only one who knew that she was now a widow. For the first time in her life she was free, if she let his family know that her husband was dead she would be both penniless and homeless. Emma decided to continue on as if she was still waiting for her husband to come home and perhaps throw a few parties and make some improvements to the estate. Luka Olivien, the Weslorian Earl of Marlaine was charged with returning some of the late Lord Dearborns effects to his family and is quite shocked to discover that they don't appear to know that he is dead. He is bewitched and bewildered by the lovely countess who may be keeping secrets and she finds herself deeply attracted to this handsome stranger who is about to bring her world crashing down. I enjoyed reading this book immensely and highly recommend it. The other books in this series are also very enjoyable.

A sparkling ride!

What an untidy, meandering, convoluted, and strangely joyous tale!
Emma Clark’s abusive husband Albert, the Earl of Dearborn had decamped to Africa, leaving Emma to wander Butterhill Hall and manage the estate alone.
Months later a man turns up to give Emma the news Albert has died in Cairo from yellow fever. Said gentleman then promptly has some sort of attack and dies on Emma’s receiving room floor.
Emma’s stunned. What to do? She knows her sister-in-law Adele, will toss Emma out of Butterhill Hall when she learns of Albert’s death, so Emma says nothing. Almost a year is gone when Luke Olivien, the Weslorian Comte ve Marlaine, son of the Duke of Astasia, turns up to deliver Albert’s pocket watch to Emma. Luka is an anthropologist. He’s been travelling with Bedouin tribes studying their migratory habits and trade routes.
Emma does all she can to avoid having Luka tell her that Albert is dead. She ignores him, flees from him, changes the topic. Finally, like Scheherazade, she spins tales to prevent him from telling her.
Luka is fascinated by this charming, free spirit. He enters into this strange game of catch can.
Emma is drawn by Luke’s care, his gorgeousness and kind heart
The story floats on through the dawdling, halcyon days of summer, enlivened by Emma’s madcap actions, as she frantically tries to bring to fruition all the changes she’s made to the estate. She wants to leave it flourishing for her young brother-in-law and heir, Andrew.
Emma knows that Adele will want to destroy her changes, sending the estate back to it’s poorer state. To Adele her brother Albert could do no wrong—but he did.
Emma also knows she will be banished from Butterhill Hall, thrown out!
In one crazy moment, Emma decides to throw a house party and ball in honour of Luka. Her last hoorah before the truth is revealed. (I must admit to feeling a pang of dismay for her long suffering and stoic butler, Feeney.)
Will Emma ever acknowledge her husband is dead? And what of Luka who learns that his father has been arrested for treason in Wesloria and that he’s also a suspect.
The foolish bravery of Emma is both troubling and magnificent. The acceptance by Luka of who Emma is, is wonderfully romantic!

A Harlequin Trade ARC via NetGalley.
Many thanks to the author and publisher. ( )
