Product Description

About the Author

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA's prestigious RITA®. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.

I always find Lorraine Heath a good read but I enjoyed this book and the subsequent series for the simple fact that the main female characters believe they want something specific throughout the entire book yet they find that what they want doesn't have the appeal they thought it would once they are close to getting it. This is your typical fairy tale but for the hopeless romantic they hit the spot.

HASH(0x9b887300) out of 5 stars An Excellent Romance March 30 2005
By BB - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The new Earl of Sachse is a wonderful hero. Camilla's character is revealed slowly. She's a tortured heroine but not depressingly so. She was unhappily married to the cruel, old Earl and has taken on the task of training the new Earl in the ways of the ton. He was quite happy as a schoolteacher and does not fit into his new role very well.

The attraction between the two is strong and believeable.Camilla takes a while to warm up to but the reasons are revealed early on. I really enjoyed this book. There is an element of mystery but it involves the characters and not an actual bad guy. There's even a slightly surprising ending.

I love Lorraine Heath. She is vastly under rated. This book is emotional and drew me in with the characters and not some ignorant adventure. If you want adventure. Read Tom Clancy. If you want a good romance that stays focused on the characters. This one's for you.

HASH(0x9b887354) out of 5 stars A Charming Victorian Tale April 8 2005
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Heath's smooth storytelling quickly draws the reader into this charming, character-driven romance. I was delighted to find only one tortured character and even more pleased to find that it wasn't the hero but the heroine, Lady Camilla. I found the well-adjusted hero, Sachse, a breath of fresh air and the perfect foil for this heroine. Anyone seeking an enjoyable lovestory--one not loaded with murder and mayhem, but filled with sensuality and honesty--will find it in As An Earl Desires

HASH(0x9b88778c) out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful Nov. 14 2005
By Autumn99 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I LOVED THIS BOOK!! It was a perfect love story. I extremely disagree with SusieQ's review. This book was not at all boring and it was extremely realistic. If you love historical romances, then please read this book. However, if you are not into lords, dukes, countesses, England, and all of that other stuff, then please read whatever you enjoy. Please do not read this and complain about it if you aren't into this type of book in the first place!!! This book is absolutely beautiful (as you can see SusieQ is the only one who disagrees here).

HASH(0x9b887b4c) out of 5 stars A thrillingly romantic hero June 26 2005
By S. Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Despite being saddled with the name Archibald, the hero was completely delicious--the sort of man any woman in her right mind would walk through fire and water to call her own. Archie was honest, intelligent, charming, romantic, sexy, kind.....flawless (and I mean that in the best way).

Camilla's insistence on marrying a duke never had a convincing rationale, but her struggle with literacy was well done. Yes, the barrenness issue was over-highlighted; we've all seen this plot before, so there were no surprises there. Indeed, several elements were "old" in terms of being used often by romance writers. There was some predictability here, but I wouldn't knock off more than 1/2 a point for that because so much is well done. The joy in this book, for me, was in the truly loveable Archie, the willingness of each of these people to sacrifice their own desires for the other's sake, and the strong emotional elements present, particularly in the last third of the book. Keep the tissues handy!

HASH(0x9b887c30) out of 5 stars Read it in a day! May 6 2005
By Love2Review - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a great novel. I read two chapters of it in the bookstore and knew I had to get it. I did not regret it. I could relate to the characters, the love scenes were tender, emotion bt. the characters were high, and the ending was just as great as the beginnng. I have read this authors books before so I should have known this book would be good. She has a way with emotions in her writing that is outstanding. She can describe something big like life and love in the simplest words. Read it if you want feel something as you read.
