Publisher's Summary

An undeniable love. An impossible choice.  

The Earl - Garrick Helmsley, an earl in both England and Scotland, returns from the Crusades to find his Scottish inheritance challenged by his uncle. Forced to secure his claim in Linkirk, he agrees to marry the daughter of a powerful border lord. But no sooner does he agree to the arrangement than he meets Lady Emma Waryn - the impulsive and irresistible sister-in-law of his old friend, the Countess of Kenshire. Before he knows it, he finds himself escorting Lady Emma to Scotland. The more time he spends with her, the more he wishes to end his betrothal, but the situation in Scotland only becomes more heated.   

The Lady - Lady Emma loves her elder brothers, but their protectiveness frequently drives her to the brink of madness. The last thing she wants is more of the same in a husband, so she has pledged never to marry a powerful, domineering man. Yet the Earl of Clave is both of those things - and he immediately stirs her passion. Garrick might not be the husband she thought she needed, but she soon realizes he’s the only one she wants. Garrick’s unwanted betrothal stands between them, but breaking it may well cause a war. Will love find a way to bring the earl and his lady together?

Great story!

My first book in this series. I loved the characters and all the character interaction. There was no clear cut path for Garrick and Emma but the journey the had was fill of ups and downs. I had to stay up and finish this one. The narrator did an excellent job distinguishing between the characters, switching accents and from male to female characters. I definitely recommend giving this one a listen.

Another great addition to the Border Series

This is another great addition to her Border Series that was a pleasure to read and I was thrilled to now listen to it. Take one man who does not want a wife, but needs to marry to secure his land. Then take a young woman who wants to marry for love. Together you get a love story full of complications and drama. The book was hard to put down and it was a dream to listen to. Tim Campbell has a voice just made for reading this series. I loved reading it and I loved listening too.

excellent story and narration

Since his father’s death in battle, Garrick Helmsley has been forced to return to England to claim both his earldom of Clave there and the one he has inherited in Scotland. His Scottish holding of Linkirk is threatened by his uncle so Garrick agrees to his mother’s plan for him to marry the daughter of a powerful Scottish border lord. But almost as soon as he agrees, Garrick meets Lady Emma Waryn, the sister-in-law of one of his childhood friends. Garrick finds himself escorting Emma to Scotland and wishing he weren’t betrothed.

Emma loves her family dearly but she’s tired of being smothered by their protectiveness and certainly doesn’t want more of the same in a marriage to a powerful man. But Garrick doesn’t fit with what she expected of a powerful earl, and she soon realizes he’s the man she wants for a husband despite all arguments to the contrary. Garrick risks starting a war if he breaks his betrothal, but for once he may put his own happiness above that of the others around him.

This was such an enjoyable listen and an excellent narration from Tim Campbell. I loved the fact that Emma was unwilling to compromise for anything less than all of Garrick and he never asked her to. It would’ve ruined everything if he’d suggested she become his mistress and I’m so glad that wasn’t the case. I appreciated that both Emma and Garrick were realistic about the obstacles they faced, but they never let that detract from the romance growing between them or from their determination to be together. I really enjoyed the communication between these two as well and I think this wound up being a real comfort read for me even with the contentious setting.

Talk about love conquering all!

Not everyone finds their soulmate, but when Gerrick finds his, nothing will stop him from making her his. Emma feels the same, yet I’ve never seen so many obstacles for one couple! Lots of angst, humor, and...you know. These two deserve to be together! The narrator, Tim Campbell was awesome!

The Earl's Entanglement

Pledged to another just to save his mother and her Scotish lands and titles, The English Earl resigned himself to his plight until he decided to take his friend's beautiful sister to her friend's estate for a couple weeks. Along the way, he could not to resist the urge to kiss her. That inself was a big mistake. He could not stop thinking about her and the kiss they shared.

back and forth

My heart went out to Graeme for his failed relationship! I already read the next book, so I know he gets his hea, so I can't be too upset now. Garrick has a hard won love finally!!! yay!! All the back and forth and angst was giving me whiplash! What a shocker about Garrick's ex???
I did like the lengths these two main characters went to to be together. I'm really enjoying this series. The narrator voice, expressions, and accents were excellent. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Another great audio book!

I have always enjoyed Tim Campbell's Narrations and his Narration of The Earl's Entanglement did not disappoint. Tim Campbell puts so much emotion into his reading, that it is almost as if hearing the actual characters in the book. He really knows how to put the right emotions to the words in Cecelia Mecca's books. I can't wait to read and listen to more in this series.

A great listen!

Another excellent addition to the Border Series and there is no better narrator than Tim Campbell. An Earl who needs to marry and a lass that wishes to marry for love. Their happily ever after is complicated and it’s a great story with wonderful characters.

Such a beautiful love story

Loved every single minute of it, I couldn't stop listening. Just can't get enough of this series. This story made me laugh and cry with sadness and happiness. Cecelia Mecca writes some beautiful love stories. What I love about this series is that there are both Scots and English Lords that form alliances together. I like that they live close to each other and that they are connected through family and marriages. And that characters from the previous books are included or mentioned in every story. The narrator Tim Campbell is fantastic., he makes the story even better. I love his voice.
Thank Cecelia Mecca and
Tim Campbell.
Now on to the next one.
