An original short story from New York Times bestselling author of historical romance, Suzanne Enoch…

Geoffrey Kerick, the Earl of Vashton, has had marriage-minded ladies flung at him for the past two years—since he inherited his brother’s title and wealth—which is much less amusing than when they were simply flinging themselves into his bed for fun.

However, this particular invitation for a country house party in Devonshire he accepts with alacrity; because this time someone has caught his eye.
Theodora Meacham is resigned to being second; a second daughter, second in beauty, and a distant second in charm. Knowing that the irritating Lord Vashton is coming to Beldath Hall to woo her sister, Theo is, for once, quite happy to remain detached from the silliness. But Lord Vashton isn't precisely the boor she expects. Even more surprising, he seems determined to ignore her sister…in favor of her!

Can two people who are perfectly ill-suited find that two wrongs do make a right?

I’ve been wanting to read something by Suzanne Enoch for a long time, but have never got around to it. While I was browsing my library’s Overdrive site, looking for something to read, I came across Good Earl Hunting by Suzanne Enoch. It’s a short story, but I’ve really been fond of novellas these days, and the premise really appealed to me. And you guys, I loved Good Earl Hunting!

Good Earl Hunting is about Theodora Meacham, who is  used to being over-looked. Everyone is more focused on her “more lovely” sister. When her family hosts a house party with the hopes of Geoffrey Kerick, the Earl of Vashton falling for Annabel, Theodora’s sister, Theodora is less than thrilled. Theodora took a disliking to Geoffrey at a previous party, and she isn’t too happy about him possibly becoming her brother-in-law. However, Geoffrey didn’t come to the party to get to know Annabel, he came to get to know Theodora.

You guys, this was such a cute story. It is very short, only around 50 pages, but I think it really worked. I fell in love with Theodora right away. I loved how, when she ran into Geoffrey, she wasn’t at all afraid to speak her mind. Never mind that he was a respected peer of the realm. It was just so wonderful. And I loved that Geoffrey was fascinated with Theodora. So many ladies were always trying to impress him, but Theodora certainly wasn’t interested. He knew that if Theodora did end up falling for him, it wouldn’t be because of his title.

If you’re looking for a quick read, try out Good Earl Hunting by Suzanne Enoch. I can’t wait to read more of Suzanne Enoch’s books.

    I love it when I fall in love with a character almost immediately. This sounds like such a sweet story, and very well-written too for a novella. I’ll keep my eyes out for your reviews of more Suzanne Enoch books. I’m interesting in trying her out too!

  2. Lover Of Romance

    oh I just love this author, she is one of my favorites. I am so glad you enjoyed this short story and hope you pick up her other books soon!!! She is wonderful to read.

    This sounds like a short, sweet, perfect read. 50 Pages? I’m curious how the author managed to put everything together in such a short read. I’ve just read a 200 Pages novella and it felt like too rushed at times especially the ending.

    Awesome review, Quinn. I’ll put this to my short read, hystorical romance TBR. Thanks for sharing. 😀

  4. Sophia Rose

    Love the Ugly Duckling style stories when they’re done right. I’ve read a Christmas shorty by her and liked her writing. This one sounds good. Thanks, Quinn!

        It was Christmas Bride anthology with three novellas by three different authors. I got it free so was glad to get a chance because they were all new to me. Hers was the kilted Scotsman. Yum!

  5. Angie @ Ba_BAMB

    Suzanne Enoch is one of my favorites. I think she is so underrated! I’ve enjoyed her historical romances, but her Samantha Jellicoe series is wonderful, too!

    So glad to see you enjoyed this one.
