I believe in love. It just doesn’t believe in me.
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.

When you know even before you start reading it's going to be a good book, something I can always say about Louise Bay.
The Earl of London is about Darcy and Logan and if you have read The Duke of Manhattan you will discover this is Ryder's sister so in a way interlinked and bonus you get catch up with Ryder and Scarlett again.
The Earl of London almost had a historical feel, country living, afternoon tea, village life, its all very British and that's one thing I love about Louise Bay's books.
About the plot:
Ryder's Grandmother once lived in the village of Westbury, Logans mother died and then his father became addicted to gambling and she lost her home trying to salvage what he had gambled away, her social standing and estate was gone but she took Logan in as her own child and brought him up on her own.
From riches to rags as they say.
Years later and richer than sin Logan who has built his own empire is finally in a position to give his Grandmother everything back that she lost including her old home that recently went up for sale. Logan would be taking his rightful place and living as an Earl.
Logan is used to the fast life, life in the City, he doesent remember the life his Grandmother once had, he's a businessman and good at what he does which is making money but Logan has a soft side which is evident the way he cares for his Gran.
Darcy is a country girl through and through with her own heritage and social standing, she's the Grandaughter of a Duke.
Both these charachters have tragic backgrounds, both have their own hang ups and insecurities but from the moment they meet there chemistry is palpable.
Darcy is feisty and Logan definitely rubs her up the wrong way.
This book is a journey, a journey of trust, and growth, there's fun and hotness along the way too.
Logan and Darcy are perfect for each other and the journey to discovering that, pushing past the uncertainties, the dramas, the stubbornness made it a damn good read that I thoroughly enjoyed and finished with a contented sigh.
