Veronica Reviews - TO CATCH AN EARL by Kate Bateman


To Catch an Earl

Bow Street Bachelors, Book 2


Kate Bateman



Historical Romance

“I want you again, Emmy Danvers.  And I want to take my time…”

“How on earth was a woman supposed to resist that?”

A kiss from a mysterious stranger at a masquerade ball is what kept Alex Harland, the Earl of Melton, going long after the war is over.  After all this time, he still cannot forget the scent and feel of the beautifully bold woman that asked him to dance and stole a kiss in the moonlight.  Now an agent for the Bow Street Runners, Alex has been given a task of apprehending the infamous Nightjar—a jewel thief that has been stealing the French Crown Jewels.  While investigating the latest crime scene, Alex is jolted to awareness by a familiar scent…one that kept him awake many a night dreaming of the woman that got away before he even got her name.  Realizing his fantasy is close at hand, Alex is determined to solve not only the case of the stolen crown jewels, but also that of his stolen heart…

Emmy Danvers has helped her father, the Nightjar, steal back the crown jewels for the French.  But when her father dies, the Nightjar’s thieving ways are laid to rest with him.  That is until a blackmailer threatens the Danvers family with bodily harm if they do not finish the job and collect the remaining jewels.  Left with no choice, Emmy plots to steal the last of the jewels, but as fate would have it, the one man she both loves and fears has been assigned the job of tracking down the Nightjar.  Now she will have to walk a fine line between saving her family as well as her heart…

To Catch an Earl is what most would refer to as an enemies to lovers trope.  While I prefer friends to lovers, I did enjoy the cat and mouse games Alex and Emmy played, and found this an enjoyable read.  To Catch an Earl is the second in Kate Bateman’s Bow Street Bachelors series, but may be read standalone.  Would recommend to fans of this genre.
