In the heart of Naples, her terrible Italian has her accidentally becoming engaged to two men at the same time. Of course, Daniel Wolcottโ€”the Earl of Thornton and the only man ever able to vex herโ€”shows up to rescue her.

But when he goes to aid his mentorโ€™s danger-prone niece once again, he finds himself struggling to control his attraction to a woman who is his complete opposite. When their situation goes from bad to worse, Daniel and Brianna find themselves swept up into a perilous adventure, and they must work together to set things right. Now, if they can just avoid killing each other in the process.

Back Cover …..

The Elusive Earl by Maddison Michaels was a fun read. I read it in one day. There were lots of funny moments.  The Elusive Earl is part of her Saints and Scoundrels series. I havenโ€™t  read the first book in this series (The Devilish Duke), but they can be read as a stand-alone. 

Brianna was taken in by her uncle as a small child, as she had seen her parents brutally murdered, he brought her up as his own daughter. Raised very much an independent young lady, but rather too high spirited and in trouble all the time. Brianna is the type of girl to get herself in to awkward situations, like getting engaged to two men !! She is a funny, quirky and awkward woman. 

Her love of archeology leads her to Naples, and thatโ€™s where her problems start โ€ฆ. trying out her Italian is funny ๐Ÿ˜†

Daniel is the total opposite, he is true and steadfast, he swore long ago that heโ€™d never really marry, heโ€™d never be the rake his father was, but there is something about Brianna that gets under his skin. And when he is tasked to rescue her in Italy, he sees her in an altogether different light. 

On the way home, he has to get the captain to โ€œmarryโ€ them, he tells Brianna that they will get an annulment once they get back. 

We then have a cousin who gets kidnapped.. so the pair race off to rescue the cousin. 

The Elusive Earl is mystery, with intrigue and enough romance to keep you happy as well as a comedy and a little danger.
