TO SAVE HER FAMILY, SHE MUST BE VERY, VERY BAD...
Miss Judith Pengarden has a problem: her family is in debt, and soon will lose their home. What's a dutiful sister to do to save her loved ones from ruination? Why, steal a few items from an aristocrat's house--items he'll surely never miss--and sell them to pay her family's debts. Luckily for her, she meets Simon Montgomery, the new Earl of Cartwright, a recluse familiar with antiquities. He can help her keep her family from debtor's prison, and he might just claim her heart too. Except instead of stealing from Simon's neighbor, she breaks into the wrong house...
Simon is determined to change the way the world sees his family, even if it means he can no longer pursue his dreams of being a scholar to take on his new title. When a thief breaks into his home and steals a precious family heirloom, he vows to get the item back. The last thing he expects is that the girl he met at a garden party is a thief! When Jude is discovered with his possessions, how will she ever convince him that despite her deception, her love for him is the truth?
“The Thief Steals Her Earl”
This book has an interesting plot, characters and storyline. I was really pleased at the caliber of writing until halfway through when attention to detail and misspellings became distracting, ie, referring to a landscape as a portrait, using the word grim instead of grin. There are other misspellings, and although they may be insignificant to some, they are distracting and stop the flow of the book. No book should have these types of errors, especially if you want readers to purchase more books. The author is talented but needs a really great proofreader attuned to content as well as spelling.
Needs better research
A disappointing read.
3 1/2 stars
Not this author’s strongest characters. But, her storylines and characters remain unusual, for the genre.
