"New romance author Anna St. Claire delivers in the Earl of Weston. Her writing style is fluid and the addition of the co-author did not detract in the reading. Both molded perfectly and the story came out as a fun reading experience." ~ Aleen - lampshade reader “Along with the humorous aspects there were equal parts suspense and intrigue. Weeks later, I’m still thinking about this book." ~ Archie the parrot "A sweet, humorous, enjoyable read for anyone who adores historical romance." ~ Erin Anfinson-pirani "From start to finish, the story line kept me riveted.
