Early Review: To Catch an Earl by Kate Bateman

Jun 26, 2020

A case of secret identities finds reunited lovers on opposite sides of the law in this fun, flirty Regency romance.

There's only one case Bow Street agent Alex Harland, Earl of Melton, hasn't cracked: the identity of the mysterious woman who stole a kiss from him before he left for war. He's neither forgotten--nor forgiven--her for leaving him wanting. When he starts investigating the Nightjar, an elusive London jewel thief, he keeps running into the alluring Emmy Danvers, who stirs feelings he hasn't felt in years.

Even though Emmy's loved Alex for years, she can't risk revealing her heart, or her identity as the Nightjar. With Alex on her case, Emmy knows that her secrets are in danger of being discovered. Their cat and mouse game heats up with every interaction, but when Emmy's reputation--and life--is at risk, will Alex realize that some rules are made to be broken for love?



     To Catch an Earl is captivating! From the moment Emmy steals that kiss, I knew I was in for a ride! Emmy's daring nature and undaunting need to play with fire had me turning the pages. This is an exciting read! As Alex begins to unravel the lovely Emmy, things take a turn for the worse. Alex and Emmy are the perfect match. The entire story is filled with clever and witty dialogue. To Catch an Earl transported me in time and I loved every minute of it. Bateman delivers an array of bold characters in this great romance. Following along with the Nightjar and her associates, as they planned and executed their heists, was titillating. I can not wait to read the next book in the series!
