I Can't Wait for... The Earl's Hideaway, No Ladies Allowed by Esther Hatch (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW @Esther_Hatch #romancebooks #cleanromance #historicalfiction #regencyromance #mustread

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

I LOVED the first book in this series (Manor for Sale, Baron Included review)! It made me literally laugh out loud multiple times, had lovely characters and a sweet romance. I'm hoping this next book will be just as fabulous. It's my pick this week...

The Earl's Hideaway, No Ladies Allowed
(A Romance of Rank #2)
By Esther Hatch
Historical Romance
Paperback & eBook
December 30, 2022


If there is one woman Samson Rutherford, Earl of Riverton, can’t abide, it is his meddling sister. He has spent his whole life being a pawn in her plans and tricks, but when one of her schemes leaves him dressed in women’s clothing, he has finally had enough. He cannot beat her at her games, or even say no to her, his only option to save his sanity and pride is to run away--and fortunately, his solicitor knows just the place…

Florence Wallace wasn’t born to be a governess, but with her family’s fall from grace, she has become one. A good one. However, when the chance arises to stay at her uncle’s home so she can care for his horticulture project while he is absent, she jumps at the chance. Leaving her position, she plans to gather her sisters together so they can be a family again--even if it is only for a little while.

But the last thing Florence expected to find upon her arrival was her childhood friend. Samson has sequestered himself at the cottage and claims to have been invited to watch over her uncle’s business while he is away. But Florence insists that’s what she’s been asked to do. The quiet retreat is what they both need, but who will get to stay?

Not Samson, because he has never gotten the better of a woman, not since… well, not since Florence let him kiss her years ago…

Come to think of it, perhaps it is time for Samson to win after all.
