Beetiful designed the book cover for The Unlikely Earl by Lorea Hartwell. It’s the second book in the Unexpected Heirs series.
When Miss Sophia Lightbourne’s spoiled sister runs away from home, there’s only one thing Sophia can do: follow her to London to try to save Kitty from being ruined.
Problem number one: Kitty doesn’t seem to care if she’s ruined.
Problem number two: Augustus Alleyne, the society portrait painter whose help Sophia needs. Yes, he’s handsome, witty and the stepson of a baronet… but she very much suspects that he’s a rake!
Yet as they follow the trail of destruction and broken hearts left by the heedless Kitty, their connection grows passionate. Does what happens in London stay in London? Sophia tells herself that it does. But her heart is telling her otherwise.
Saving Kitty is getting more complicated by the day. And what is Sophia to do when Alleyne makes her want to fall into ruin herself?
Lorea Hartwell began writing her first (completely unpublishable) romance when she was eighteen.
After college she flailed in her career before eventually becoming a magazine writer and editor and more or less proving that a degree in creative writing wasn't useless after all. She’s lived in Canada, the UK and the US, which means she’s driven the length of I-5 and flown across the Atlantic with cats yelling at her.
