To Catch an Earl (Bow Street Bachelors #2) by Kate Bateman – 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?

About the Author: Kate Bateman (also writing as K. C. Bateman) wrote her first historical romance in response to a $1 bet with her husband who rashly claimed she’d ‘never finish the thing.’ She gleefully proved him wrong. Her Regency and Renaissance-era romances all feature her trademark feisty, intelligent heroines, wickedly inappropriate banter, and heroes you want to both strangle and kiss.
When not traveling to exotic locations ‘for research,’ Kate leads a double life as a fine art appraiser and on-screen antique expert for several TV shows in the UK, each of which has up to 2.5 million viewers. She splits her time between Illinois and her native England and writes despite three inexhaustible children and a number-loving husband who still owes her that dollar. Website – www.kcbateman.com
Review of To Catch an Earl
The second book in the Bow Street Bachelors series by Kate Bateman is titled To Catch an Earl. A steamy historical romance that sweeps you off your feet with lots of drama and romance. The characters were simply delightful! While this is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone novel. After I devoured the first book in the series, I knew I had to read To Catch an Earl. A spectacular romance from beginning to end that I highly recommended! *I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.*
