Summary:
Intended for one man ...

All her life, everyone assumed Paget Ellsworth, the vicar’s daughter, would marry the Earl of Winningham’s youngest son. And when he left for war with his older brother, Jamie, words and promises were not necessary. She would wait.

 

 

 

But destined for another …

Four years pass, and the death of his father forces Jamie home to take up the reins as the new earl, leaving his brother fighting on the front lines a world away. Maddening, infuriating, sexy Jamie makes Paget question her feelings. One glimpse, one word from him awakens desire in her heart.

“The Earl in My Bed” is a historical novella introducing Sophie Jordan’s new series. In it, Paget is surprised and a little upset to learn that her childhood nemesis, Jamie, has returned home. As a young girl, Paget was very close to two neighboring boys – who happened to be children of an Earl. Jamie was the middle child who nobody really liked.
