Review: Last Night with the Earl by Kelly Bowen (2018)

Devils of Dover, Book 2

Heat Factor: The sex scenes are excellent and well-integrated 

Character Chemistry: They are both soooooo morally upright, so I guess they are perfect for each other

Plot: Earl presumed dead returns, runs into former friend’s former fiancée, woos her for himself

Overall: Not my favorite of Bowen’s oeuvre
