The Earl Claims a Bride by Amelia Grey

Harrison Thornwick is given a choice by the Prince, marriage or prison. He's only just come into the earldom. As a fourth son, he was far, far down the family line to inherit. Now his only focus is rebuilding the family manse (locals burned it down as a superstitious measure after Harrison's family died of a fever).

The Earl Claims a Bride by Amelia GreyAngelina is dreaming of the man she wants to marry, a captain in the army. Not some rogue who is more known for his exploits than his heroic attempts. But her father will be put in debtor's prison if she doesn't marry Harrison.
Blergh. I generally like Amelia Grey but this was not one of her better books. I rounded up to three stars but it was really more like a two and a half. There were so many story threads but none were really developed. And I never got why Harrison loved Angelina. He just sees her across a ballroom? I almost felt like it was more about the competition with her other beau. And the whole subplot of Angelina trying to save her father... what was the resolution? It just felt underdeveloped. A disappointing follow-up to a book I thoroughly enjoyed.
This book is coming out on August 4.

Followed by (novella) The Duke and Miss Christmas
