Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Earl's Lady Geologist by Alissa Baxter, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


The Earl's Lady Geologist

Title: The Earl's Lady Geologist
Series: The Linfield Ladies Series
Author: Alissa Baxter
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Release Date: February 28, 2021
Genre: Clean Regency Romance

Cassandra Linfield is a lady fossil collector who declares she will never marry as no man will ever take her studies seriously. When circumstances force her to travel to Town for the Season, Cassy infiltrates the hallowed portals of the Geological Society from which she has been banned. She is horrified when she comes face to face with her nemesis, the infuriating Earl of Rothbury. 

Lord Rothbury is a gentleman-geologist with a turbulent romantic past. After a youthful disappointment, he vows never to fall in love again and makes the decision, instead, to seek out a convenient wife when he returns to England from his geological travels abroad. 

Brought together by their close family ties, Cassy and Rothbury collaborate on a geological paper and discover a powerful attraction. Marriage, however, is the one subject they cannot agree upon. But when Cassy’s life is threatened, the two realize that love matters more than their objections.

Thoroughly enjoyable, with a fast moving steady plot, and endearing characters.

Cassandra is a wonderful heroine, I loved her passion for geology and her no-nonsense approach to marriage and romance. I liked that she came off as a normal girl, plain by common standards of beauty, with an independent streak. I loved how we see Rothbury open up to Cassy over the course of the book, as we get to see the man that he is. Also I loved the tender relationship between Cassy and her late mother, which brought a lot of heart to the story. 

At times touching, at others humorous with snappy dialogue between the main characters, this was entertaining and satisfying read from beginning to end. The characters were well developed, and I loved how the well researched history was woven into the story, blending fictional and historical characters. I would heartily recommend this wholesome regency romance!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
