Wedding Night with the Earl by Amelia Grey

A stubborn nobleman and a willful young woman are at the heart of bestselling author Amelia Grey’s newest love story.


Adam Greyhawke is through with marriage. After losing his wife at a young age, he’s more interested in carousing and gambling at the Heirs’ Club than taking another trip to the altar. When his obligations as the Earl of Greyhawke thrust him into the heart of Society, he dreads the boredom that only a London ballroom can inspire in a roguish scoundrel. That is, until he meets a bewitching young woman who captures his curiosity—and reminds him just how delicious desire can be.


Miss Katharine Wright is accustomed to men interested only in her generous dowry. Adam’s attraction is far more powerful—he tests her wits and her courage at every turn, until she finds herself longing to fulfill an everlasting passion she never imagined was possible. But the breathtakingly handsome nobleman is as stubborn as he is scandalous, and Katharine must be the one to convince him that real love is worth any risk…in Wedding Night with the Earl by New York Times bestselling author Amelia Grey.

4.5 warm and fuzzy stars.

Wedding Night with the Earl was an excellent conclusion to The Heirs' Club of Scoundrels trilogy. Amelia Grey has an easy flowing, steady-paced writing style, which has the pages turning at a rapid rate, and I always look forward to whatever books she publishes.

I'm a sucker for precocious kids written on the pages, pets treated as a main character, friends who are truly friends and not frenemies, family who is your #1 fan, and flaws and disabilities which empower the characters rather than impede them. Wedding Night with the Earl delivered on all counts.

After reading several books that were stressful, back-to-back, I was so thrilled to read a book that flowed fluidly, with developed characters without any intrigue or frustrating plot threads. Not that the story was without heart-tugging angst, but it was of the type that was with agony of the past holding the character back, not outside forces bent on destruction. All of which, I am thankful.

Adam was just a good guy, with a good heart, and good intentions. The readers have known him since book one, as his fellow friends always tried to include him, worried about his mental state after tragically losing his wife and baby during childbirth. He didn't ever plan to remarry or have children of his own. When the earldom is tossed into his lap, along with a 5-year-old cousin, Adam reluctantly but happily takes in the tike, and in a heartbeat, he names him his heir.

Katherine was equally good, but also strong-willed in a way that most characters aren't written. Often times, the strong-willed female characters are illogical, so arrogant they refuse to admit they are wrong instead of right. Katherine was flawed, yet confident in who she was. I appreciated that this empowered woman wasn't written over-the-top to prove she was a badass while I thought she looked a fool. Yes, I just read several books in a row, as I mentioned above, where every heroine was stubborn, refused to apologize, and was always right even when wrong (which I'm positive are all things that make our gender look bad to the opposite sex, and I refuse to celebrate the illogical, baffling way women are usually written).

Adam and Katherine challenged each other to better themselves, even when apart. Katherine still strived to better herself, for herself, instead of waiting or lying down and dying (emotionally). I appreciated Katherine's tenacity, her lack of game-playing, and her honesty, both within herself and others.

It was refreshing to have two mature characters written on the pages. Adam and Katherine were good people, suffering from tragic events, who truly deserved an HEA, and I enjoyed every page of their journey.

I'm sad to see this series go, and I'm not-so secretly hoping the author would give us the tales of the children of the story, all grown up of course. The strong little feller of this tale made me want to see him when he was an adult.
