'Changing the Earl's Mind' by Kristen McLean is book Three in the "The Lords of Whitehall" series. This is the story of Drake Ramsey, the Earl of Saint Brides and Sarah Tindall. I have not yet read the other books so for me this was a standalone book. Although I enjoyed this one so much I hope to read the others soon!
Sarah is from America and has only been in London for 1 month. Sarah married a man she thought she could trust. They had made a deal that she would get half of her dowry and he would get the other half. This way Sarah though she could live her life independently on her own with her money. But her 'husband' gambled everything they had and left her with nothing. Then someone seem to have killed him and now she is being framed for his death. So Sarah went on the run but it didn't take long for her to be found by Drake.
Drake is in Home Secretary but has take a break and leaves to return to his home. Drake goes by his father's old hunting cabin and finds Sarah there. Drake gets most of her story out of her and even covers for her when the local law comes looking for her. But Drake assures her that she is pretty much in his custody .
Drake has pretty much cut himself off of emotional ties but can he keep that attitude around Sarah when he is finding her the most attractive and interesting women he has met?
Can Sarah convince him to believe her?
