About the Book
Can Captain Wyvern keep his new marriage of convenience all business--or will it turn into something more?
Captain Charles Wyvern owes a great debt to the man who saved his life--especially since Major Richardson lost his own life in the process. The best way to honor that hero's dying wish is for Wyvern to escort the man's grieving fiance and mother safely to a new cottage home by the sea. But along the way, he learns of another obligation that has fallen on his shoulders: his uncle has died and the captain is now the Earl of Rothwell.
When he and the ladies arrive at his new manor house in Devon, they discover an estate in need of a leader and a gaggle of girls, all wards of the former earl. War the new earl knows; young ladies and properties he does not. Still wishing to provide for the bereaved Lady Sophia Haverly, Charles proposes a marriage of convenience.
Sophie is surprised to find she isn't opposed to the idea. It will help her care for her betrothed's elderly mother, and she's already fallen in love with the wayward girls on the Rothwell estate. This alliance is a chance to repay the captain who has done so much for her care, as well as divert her attention from her grief. When Wyvern returns to his sea commission, she'll stay behind to oversee his property and wards.
It sounds so simple. Until the stalwart captain is arrested on suspicion of smuggling, and Sophie realizes how much he's come to mean to her. Now she'll have to learn to fight, not only for his freedom but also for his love.

The Indebted Earl is the third installment from Erica Vetsch’s series, Serendipity and Secrets series. I enjoyed the first two books, The Lost Lieutenant and The Gentleman Spy, and this one does not disappoint. Even though they are part of the series, I believe they all can be read as a stand alone. I found The Indebted Earl to be my favorite of the series. Charles and Sophie’s tale is so very sweet and delightful. I loved every single page.
I am giving The Indebted Earl a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romance. As always, I look forward to reading more by Erica Vetsch. She never fails to write a beautiful story. I loved this one!
I received a paperback copy of The Indebted Earl by the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
