    One thought on “The Earl's Mistress”

    1. DNF@80%. I can almost imagine what happened during the creative/planning process of this book:Editor/Whoever Was In Charge: Let's face it, BDSM sells. Might as well join in the bandwagon!Writer: Okay! Oh, but how about the loyal fans who would totally be caught off guard by this?Editor/WWIC: Who cares?!Writer: Right!I swear, Fifty Shades of Grey is the bane of my existence. Ever since it became ultra-popular—up until now, I still don't understand how that happened; I mean, my ten-year old cous [...]

    2. One of the things Ms Carlyle does so well in this story is show the very real difficulties and danger faced by a young woman in the heroine’s situation. Well-born and gently-bred Isabella Aldridge was left with nothing upon the death of her father and had to assume the care of her two younger sisters (a half-sister and a step-sister). While her upbringing seemed to her at the time to have been idyllic, she has come to realise that perhaps her father did not do his best for her, being too easy- [...]

    3. WOW!!! A bit of a departure from Ms. Carlyle's usual writing style. Not to say it wasn't as good as the ususal stories she writes, just different for her, as well as unexpected. There was some spanking and bondage going on in this dark romance. Not say I didn't enjoy it, I did, even though that usually isn't my kind of kink to read about. Everybody is getting on the BDSM bandwagon, so why not her. :-) I just wish the epi could have been a bit different in that we get to see Tony's and Bella's fe [...]

    4. This book was soo good. And hot!The Earl's Mistress was very unexpected. At first, I thought it was going to be the run of the mill "lord seduces governess" trope but it wasn't. Then I thought it was going to be "MCs enjoy idyllic affair" but it wasn't. Not only that, but the hero was crazy in love with the heroine by mid-book and not fighting it. Once you add the light bondage/BDSM, it turned out a totally unpredictable read. In a good way!Isabella is looking for a position as a governess in An [...]

    5. Definitely a very bold departure for Liz Carlyle and one I personally felt slightly uncomfortable with.I mean of course the bedroom scenes. There is a lot of talk in other reviews about '50 Shades of Grey'; not having read that novel I wouldn't know, what I do know, however, is that the course Ms. Carlyle has taken in The Earl's Mistress works, in this storyline anyway. It's not dominance - or whatever the correct term is - for dominance sake, it's part of who Anthony is and it becomes clear tha [...]

    6. I was excited to be granted an advance e-book copy of The Earl's Mistress through Edelweiss. Liz Carlyle is one of my favorite historical romance authors. Her books have strong female leads, wit, and a strong historical presents. This books was a huge disappointment. I feel Fifty Shades of Grey has ruined the romance genre. This book is a historical Fifty Shades of Grey.

    7. I'm not sure if this is Liz Carlyle's first attempt at sadomasochism, but I find it a little annoying that the female character is so undecided in what she likes or wants. I mean, I understand that this is new to her and she is grasping on her feelings for it, but must the dialogue be so repetitive? Not my kind of thing.

    8. The biggest problem with this book is that it tries too hard. And if there's one thing that drives me nuts, it's genre romance that takes itself too seriously--hence the author is unable (or unwilling?) to treat it with anything less than utmost solemnity. But c'mon, this is a generic Avon with bondage! That's just begging for a wink & a grin, right?!N.B. Since I recently honored one of my fave crusty warriors with an Avon review, I'll use another for this one: Ser Bronn of the Blackwater, s [...]

    9. Ever wonder what it would be like to be a mistress? To be in control of a man's desires? Ever wonder what it would be like to be the mistress of an Earl? Me neither, but for one lady, she was left with no choice.Isabella Aldridge is a brilliant woman with tremendous pressure cast on her shoulders. Having to take care of her two sisters with her job as a governess was difficult, but it became almost impossible when she lost her job.Now looking for a new post as a governess elsewhere, she was brou [...]

    10. This book was a real disappointment to me. I am not crazy about B/D but I really dislike versions that include actual pain and while there wasn't much here I found it distasteful as I did the reasons the characters enjoyed it. It's simply implausible that a woman who is looking to be cared for would find caring in being whipped.Moreover the scenes outside the bedroom were not particularly compelling, we didn't really see either hero or heroine fall in love, and their characters outside the bedro [...]

    11. I used to love reading books by Liz Carlyle until she went off and started writing fantasy books for which I had no interest. Then I heard she had returned to historical romance and I thought, YIPPEE! Talk about disappointment. Now, she's into sado-masochism. This story starts out okay: down-on-her-luck heroine desperately applying for a job as a governess gets turned down by handsome-but-heartless rake. You think it will all work out in the end. It's doesn't. This guy is not only a sadist; he's [...]

    12. This was a straight-up 50 Shades rip-off (albeit better written). After having just read one of the best romance novels I've read in a while, this was just terrible. I'm very disappointed because generally I really like Liz Carlyle.

    13. Carlyle thoroughly engages readers!There’s plenty of sizzle . . . An entertaining read anda good choice for readers who like historical and a bit of spanking and bondage.

    14. Posted on What I'm ReadingI wasn't sure if I was going to add my thoughts to this post. However, I have decided to. Yes, I was a little worry when I looked at other people's thoughts. There are some reviews that might be consider harsh out there, and I do believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion of the story. Yeah, I would I went with the thought "What did I get myself into". As I started to read The Earl's Mistress, I was surprise by my reaction to the story. Yes, it isn't your typical [...]

    15. Penurious widow Isabella Aldridge needs a job—badly. Since her husband left her penniless, she's been making her way as a governess. Her last position ended when the boys went to school, and now, with their rent and all their other bills months in arrears, she and her two young sisters are about to be out on the street. Oh, there is family but the price she and her sisters would have to pay for their support is far too dear. In desperation, she travels all the way to Northumberland, on the pro [...]

    16. Disclosure: I received this ARC through Edelweiss. Thank you to Avon and Liz Carlyle for the opportunity. Yes, this is an honest review.* * *The blurb for The Earl's Mistress implies that Liz Carlyle has taken an interesting route when she wrote The Earl's Mistress. The words "darkest" and "most sensuous" are in the superlative, and one should anticipate the very steamy element that the author has added to her sex scenes. The themes of control and submission are highlighted early on -- which led [...]

    17. Verified Purchase, this review is from: The Earl's Mistress (MacLachlan Family & Friends) (Kindle Edition) 19 of 21 people found the following review helpful5 out of 5 stars*** Like "Shades of Gray" but in a Victorian Way (sort of), September 6, 2014I've never read Shades of Gray, but I do admit I have quickly scanned a few pages once or twice. That type of book is not for me. I am not into kinky play or spankings, butt plugs or filthy language. I want a story with love, obsession, possessi [...]

    18. A lovely romance that was both sweet and sensuous, The Earl's Mistress was a wonderful read. I really liked this book. From start to finish, it was an enjoyable read.Isabella was a good heroine. I liked that she was strong and determined to take care of her sisters and live independently. However, I had some issues with her. She could be a bit self-righteous, somewhat hypocritical, and frustratingly indecisive, mostly regarding her relationship with Anthony. It annoyed me that, even though she c [...]

    19. This was a lovely, sensuous, and wonderful read with realistic characters. I had it on my kindle for months, but delayed reading it because of the reviews! How I am sorry I waited.

    20. To say that I am a fan of this author would be an understatement. I believe I have every book she’s written and some are print, some on my Kindle and some, as is this one, on both Kindle, copy and audio. Yeah, I am that kind of a bookworm.I’ve read all the others in this series, so naturally I had to read this one too. Let me say at the outset that I loved the Victorian setting as much as I loved the characters. As a matter a fact, I had to wrestle between liking and loving this story becaus [...]

    22. Isabella Aldridge is a well-bred woman who is at her last resort. Widowed and struggling to take care of her two younger sisters, she tries to find work as a governess only to face the reality that her looks and reputation make it impossible to get hired. Her last interview with the Earl of Hepplewood went so badly, he suggested the only job for her was to be a wealthy man's mistress. After punching him in the face (huzzah!) she realizes he just might be right but when her new plan is put into a [...]

    23. I am giving this book 3 stars as an average. The overall story was easily 5 stars. The sex scenes were 1 star at the most. If I had wanted to read 50 Shades of Gray type of sex scenes, I would have read 50 Shades of Gray. Those scenes were so glaringly out of place in relationship with the rest of the story.Liz Carlyle has been one of my favorite historical romance authors for years. I have always loved how all her books are connected by the wonderful characters she has created. I just don't why [...]

    24. I'm not sure why I didn't like "The Earl's Mistress" more.Liz Carlyle tells great stories with vivid, sympathetic characters and carefully developed plots. But somehow, in "Earl's Mistress," I just never really connected with either Isabella or Hepplewood. Gorgeous Isabella is desperate to save herself and her sisters from destitution, so she applies for a position with the Earl of Hepplewood as a governess, only to be rudely propositioned. She leaves in a huff, but soon realizes that she'd be f [...]

    25. Liz Carlyle has been a favorite author and an auto-buy for me for many years now, but sadly, THE EARL'S MISTRESS isn't one of her better books. The writing wasn't bad, it was more that I really didn't like either Isabella nor Anthony. I can't put my finger on what it was about them, but they just didn't work for me.I felt that the romance between Isabella and Anthony was rushed and forced. I enjoy books with BDSM and hot, erotic sex scenes, and there was plenty of them in THE EARL'S MISTRESS, bu [...]

    26. I enjoyed this book. Number #10 but very few overlapping characters, but I could be wrong. Impoverished Isabella tries to get a job as a governess, but she is just too beautiful. The Earl wants her as his mistress instead. A title that actually works!! She of course says no, but having no other prospects, she goes back to London and decides that she must find a rich protector. Coincidentally, the "mistress matchmaker" has been asked to find a particular looking woman. So when she turns up at the [...]

    27. The Earl"s Mistress is a different historical romance, The story and plot was really good but there were parts of the book that hero was so dark, wicked and cold. The heroine Isabella was strong and beautiful widow who has been taking care of her sisters for the past several years. Heppelwood the hero was a challenge to like, at times he was cold and dark but mostly was great father and gentleman. It was a great story. Thank you Liz Carlyle.

    28. 4/5; 4 stars; A-I really enjoy the way this author creates her female main characters. In this book, she tells the story of a lady of quality 'on the ropes'. Isabella is trying to find work as a governess so she doesn't have to resort to selling herself in order to care for her young sisters. Its not really a new story line but Carlyle's gift for characterization makes it a treat to read.
