Three Abductions & An Earl by Tessa Candle is a rather fun historical romance. Ms. Candle has given us a well-written book filled with phenomenal characters. Lydia wanted to be left in peace in the country. Instead, she is forced to London to be a debutante. Aldley is an Earl trying to avoid the earl hungry debutantes and their mothers. Lydia and Aldley's story is loaded with action, suspense, sizzle and drama. My favorite thing about this book though is the way Ms. Candle has slipped the humor in where you don't expect it. I enjoyed reading Three Abductions & An Earl and look forward to reading more from Tessa Candle in the future. Three Abductions & An Earl is book 1 of the Parvenues and Paramours Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
