Introducing the Bow Street Bachelors-men who work undercover for London's first official police force-and the women they serve to protect. . .and wed?


Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed is done with men who covet her purse more than her person. Even worse than the ton's lecherous fortune hunters, however, is the cruel cousin determined to force Georgie into marriage. If only she could find a way to be . . . widowed? Georgie hatches a madcap scheme to wed a condemned criminal before he's set to be executed. All she has to do is find an eligible bachelor in prison to marry her, and she'll be free. What could possibly go wrong?


Benedict William Henry Wylde, scapegrace second son of the late Earl of Morcott and well-known rake, is in Newgate prison undercover, working for Bow Street. Georgie doesn't realize who he is when she marries him-and she most certainly never expects to bump into her very-much-alive, and very handsome, husband of convenience at a society gathering weeks later. Soon Wylde finds himself courting his own wife, hoping to win her heart since he already has her hand. But how can this seductive rogue convince brazen, beautiful Georgie that he wants to be together.until actual death do they part?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from witty and entertaining I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This Earl Of Mine, by Kate Bateman, is available at booksellers on 10-29-19. The first in a new series, The Bow Street Bachelors, it sets the tone for stories to come. While I enjoyed this book from start to finish, I'm only giving 3 stars. Everything but the kitchen sink was thrown into the plot, it became comical. The characters are witty, even secondary ones have bon mots. Almost everyone has a job, that's refreshing, and there are still stereotypical historical romance characters interspersed throughout the story. What is enjoyably different is also the most unbelievable. A dominate female running a large company and none of the men balk? Georgie Caversteed is an ace at her job but everyone acts as if it's no big deal. Suitors may not like it but she's still invited to ton events. It was a long time before money overshadowed a lack of title, no matter how much money it was. Georgie is a very likeable lady, always 2 steps ahead with a plan, even if it's really out there. She's too 20th century to be in a historical story but she's just great. Ben Wyled, former soldier & broke civilian, is believable. Ben Wylde, broke & owning a share of a club is not. He's also not an Earl until after the HEA and right before "the end". The title is a stretch. He's spying for the crown, which lots of characters do, but it's very involved, not just information. He was incarcerated in Newgate prison to ferret out members of a gang. Way too 20th century for me. I like him though, he's fun, adventurous, never boring, just ton enough to be invited out, he's single and handsome too. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading To Catch An Earl in June of 2020. Happy reading. #Netgalley #KateBateman #StMartin"sPaperbacks #ThisEarlOfMine #TheBowStreetBachelors

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When buying a husband... remember: Buyer beware! :) When you are an heiress with more money than all your suitors combined, how do you choose a groom? The answer to that question is to dive into the depths of Newgate prison and buy yourself a husband on the night before he is hanged. A widows life is where it is at! Only there is one small problem… what if there are no condemned criminals available on the night you have decided to take your husband? … What is instead you end up married to one of Londons most notorious rogues? And lastly, what if he’s penniless to boot??? Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed has done just that, now she and her scapegrace husband, Benedict Wylde need to come up with a. Plan to save face and each of them get what they want in the. She wants independence and freedom from all the fortune hunters, while Ben just needs some cash to help his debt ridden brother, the Earl of Morcott? Will this unlikely pair survive the rest of the season and find their own happiness? This was fun read and an interesting way to push the two characters together. I loved their interactions and watching them grow together. This Earl of Mine by Kate Bateman, the first book in her new Bow Street Bachelors series is scheduled to release October 29th, 2019. I received a complimentary copy of this book from St. Martin's Press through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. #ThisEarlOfMine #KateBateman #NetGalley #pinkcowlandreads
