Love left me off its to-do list.
I date. I'm all for giving guys a chance. I've just never met the one.
Until on a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist. Logan Steele is all tousled hair, hard chest and lips so perfect I want to reach out and touch them just to check they're real. I'm sure that's a thunderclap of chemistry I feel between us.
Did I mention he's an Earl with a self-made fortune?
A billionaire who works tirelessly for charity?
And he's so hot, watching him is like staring at the sun.
But like I said, love isn't rooting for me.
When I find out Logan Steele is out to destroy everything I've dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.
It no longer matters that he quickens my pulse just saying my name, weakens my knees with a single touch and that he might just be the greatest kisser that ever lived.
I might believe in love but Logan Steele is definitely not the one.
A standalone romance.

A fun read
Super cute book! I loved the characters! I loved the chemistry Darcy and Logan had! I found myself smiling so much through out this book! I’m a huge fan of banter so this was right up my ally!
If you like a feisty, tell it how it is and caring female then Darcy is for you! If you like a goes after what he wants, says all the right things, is tall and hot then Logan is for you!
And if you like all that wrapped up in a good story then this book is totally for you!
DARCY FINALLY GETS HER HEA!
The Earl of London is a wonderful steamy love story set in the United Kingdom between Lady Darcy and an Earl, Logan. This book is a standalone told in dual person POV, but I wholeheartedly encourage you to also read The Duke of Manhattan (Darcy is Ryder’s sister, the Duke in this book, and he marries an American, Scarlett) and The British Knight (Alexander is a barrister from Britain and marries Scarlett’s sister, Violet, also from the US.) The four of them reappear in the Earl of London. I really enjoy books where you see where couples that you have grown to love continue in a story line.
The Earl of London was everything I hoped it would be. Darcy is a heroine I really admire. I loved her secondary character in the previous books and was one of the fans writing to Louise begging her to write about Darcy and she delivered. Darcy was independent, strong willed, loving, loyal, witty, caring, a smart businesswoman, and very devoted to her family heritage and town. She was also very lonely living in the enormous estate because her brother, the Duke, lived in the US with his wife and children, and her parents and grandparents were gone.
Her life makes a complete turn-around when Logan, her strikingly handsome new neighbor, moves in as a weekender and their sexual chemistry is undeniable. They seemed to keep bumping into one another and eventually give in to their mutual attraction. Louise can write some steamy love scenes and their love scenes are explosive. I loved how they would flirt and then insult each other in the same breath! Darcy was so witty and wonderful, and Logan I just wanted to slap him and hug him at the same time.
Logan is quite the domineering man when they are being intimate, but he is also patient, generous, considerate, charming, and respectful. I loved all of their interactions and you can see this relationship as something that could last long-term, even if they couldn’t.
They each make the wrong assumptions about one another and she learns he is nothing like she expected. He is someone who never thought he would want to settle down, but was in constant awe of her beauty, ambition, passion, and genuine nature.
His relationship with his grandmother is very sweet and shows what type of man he really is on the inside, and is one of many reasons Darcy falls in love with him. He, too, is a smart, self-made successful businessman and comes to realize what he needs to do to become a better and happier man.
Of course there was some angst in this book, but I routed for them the entire time. Darcy is no pushover and even when she is vulnerable. I admire her strength and belief in her self-worth and how she, too, discovers what it is in life that makes her happy.
While getting to know one another, this couple shares some very emotional and honest parts of their pasts, and they are very tender and supportive of one another. They really care about each other’s feelings and learn to compromise, especially about a personal business deal he is pursuing in their town.
The way the author describes the various scenes in the book makes you feel as if you are there. Being from the US, I really enjoy reading books set in other countries and this book makes you feel you are on the English countryside living in a quaint village where you know all the townspeople. I want to visit there and have tea with Darcy and Logan!
