Captain Robert Ashton, Earl of Darington, knows finding a bride in London will not be easy—not since he has been notoriously dubbed as the “Pirate Earl”. What he didn’t expect was to get abducted—and to have his escape go horribly awry when an innocent lady gets caught in the crossfire.
Amateur physician Emma St. James is on her way to meet her betrothed when she is rescued by an injured gentleman. Despite her shock after discovering he is the Pirate Earl, Emma feels drawn to the man who saved her life. Duty forces them apart, but when they meet again on the high seas, Darington will risk all—his fortune, his name, and even his life to keep her safe.
Earl Interrupted is second in Amanda Forester ‘s The Daring Marriages series but reads perfectly as a stand-alone. The Earl aka Dare is a privateer, not be confused with a pirate. He does this line of work because he and his twin sister Lady Katherine became orphaned at a young age and someone stole their family’s wealth. Dare has become wealthy through privateering and now wants to find a wife.
“Life as a privateer was dangerous, but stepping into London society to find a wife? That was far more treacherous.”-Earl Interrupted (The Daring Marriages #2) by Amanda Forester
Enter Emma St. James, who learned medicine through her father who was a physician. Now that Emma is about to turn 18, the wealth her dad left her will become her own.
