The Mad Earl’s Bride by Loretta Chase

The Mad Earl's BrideHistorical Romance

From Goodreads:

"Originally appeared in the print anthology Three Weddings and a Kiss.

Gwendolyn Adams is about to propose to an earl. On his deathbed.

Gwendolyn Adams isn't shocked at being asked to save a handsome earl's dying line, even when she learns the prospective bridegroom is seriously ill and possibly insane. She's quite a good nurse, after all, and her family is famous for producing healthy male children. Those stories about his riding the moors half-naked on a pale white horse? Extremely intriguing—especially after she gets her first look at the gorgeous lunatic.

The Earl of Rawnsley wants only to lose what's left of his mind in peace and privacy. But his busybody relatives have saddled him with a surprise bride and orders to sire an heir forthwith. (And they say he's mad?) But with Gwendolyn, his health is returning, and his resistance ... crumbling. Is it possible that love is the finest madness of all?"

The Mad Earl’s Bride is a cute novella.  Dorian and Gwen are both fun characters.  Dorian is sure he is about to die.  Gwen has a lot of medical knowledge, plans take care of him and study what is causing what he thinks is his descent into madness.  I did recognize what his problem was long before it came out in the book but that did not change how much I enjoyed the story.  The two have a fun and interesting journey to their HEA.  

Avon Impulse will publish The Mad Earl’s Bride by Loretta Chase as a stand alone novella June 4, 2013.
