Review of Waiting for an Earl Like You by Alexandra Hawkins

As with every other book that I have read by Alexandra this one is a breathtaking romance with heart stopping peril, truly extraordinary characters and a story that is truly witty and lushly sensual.  Thorn is a true Romantic Hero, he is handsome, strong, smart and a wicked rake.  He has always had control over his sexual urges and has gone months at a time without a woman when he is immersed in other aspects in his life.  Until he encounters Olivia a woman he knew as a child.  She has grown up into a beautiful woman and of course she is again with his twin brother Gideon, just like when they were children.  Only now he does not want to avoid her anymore.  She is intriguing and their is something that draws him in..

Olivia has always been friends with Gideon and avoided Thorn.  She always felt like he was judging her and finding her wanting in everything she has done or said. The biggest problem is that Thorn and Gideon are identical twins and Thorn uses that to his advantage to woo Olivia.

The situations that they find themselves in are funny, inappropriate and scandalous.
Alexandra is a truly gifted writer who knows what romance readers really enjoy.
She has the talent to show how life was lived in this period of time.  Her dialogue is funny, romantic, smart and a joy to read.  What I enjoy most about her books is her impressive original plots and the passion she puts into every word.  This is a must read.

Received a complimentary copy for an honest review.


  1. Jaci, I have never read any of Alexandra Hawkins' books but your glowing review certainly has me interested in trying this new-to-me author.

  2. Carol you should start with her Lords of Vice Series...she also writes as Barbara Pierce..which are just as amazing
