When a bluestocking spinster sets her mind to something...

Lady Patience Lane, daughter of the Earl of Desmond and legendary boxer Ivory Bess, grew up learning to fight, not how to mind her manners. She always expected she'd become a trainer like her mother, until injuries from the ring led to her mother's untimely death. Now, she's determined to save other families from the same heartache, by teaching others about the dangers of boxing. Nothing could bring her back to the world she left--until she meets a mysterious stranger who sets her pulse racing.

And a dark, dangerous lord interferes...

Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville and known as "Sin" to his cohorts, inherited an insolvent estate. He has to make money, and fast, or his tenants will starve. The prize purses from the bareknuckle mills will go a long way to solving his problems, if he can win them. To be a success in the ring, he needs the best trainer, and Patience Lane is the best there is--all he has to do is convince her that he'll only fight once.

They just might find their happily ever after in each other's arms.

The more time Sin and Patience spend together, the closer they become. Soon, Sin's thoughts are less about winning in the ring, and more about winning Patience's heart. But can a relationship born out of wicked deception stand the test of time?

Lady Patience Lane is a crusader against boxing. In The Earl of St. Seville, she is the daughter of the famed Ivory Bess, one of the most famous female fighters. But having lost her mother due to the side effects of boxing, Patience wants to prevent others from losing their loved ones, or their own lives. Sinclair (Sin) Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville, has come to London in hopes of earning prize money. He discovered that his father left the estate in financial ruin. He can think of no other way of saving his family and their loyal workers. But there’s a big difference between fighting the lads at Brownsea and fighting a true prizefighter. As much as she objects to prizefighting, she hears of his plight. Patience knows that she must use all of the techniques her mother taught her to help Sinclair. She takes him to Southlund House, her mother’s training academy for boxers. After a few short lessons, he is better prepared for his bout. Different And Unexpected This book is certainly as far away from a typical Regency romance as any story I have ever read. Although many a tale has included a prizefight or two, none involve female boxers. And none showcase ladies who know so much about boxing. Certainly the fact that Patience not only knows how to box herself but also enough to know how to train a fighter makes her character far removed from the typical ton debutante. Having the male protagonist be the one who is saved by the knowledge and expertise of the female, also makes the story unique. While females often “save” the hero of the story, it is unexpected when the young lady is the one with the expertise and knowledge of a very masculine undertaking. This is the 11th book in The Wicked Earls Club series. This book works very well as a standalone novel if you’ve never read other books in the series. I have not read any of the other books by Christina McKnight but do look forward to getting ahold of more of her work. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

Earl of St Seville by Christina McKnight is book 11 in the "Wicked Earl's Club" series. This is the story of Lady Patience Lane and Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville. I have been jumping in and out of this series so for me this was easily a standalone book. Patience lost her mother about 5 years ago and has had a hard time since dealing with the death. Patience mother was a famous prize fighter and now Patience tries to discourage and educate others on the out come of fighting. Patience father helps Sin out when he is hurt and bring him home and this is were Sin meets Patience they end up meeting again at a ball where Sin stands up and defends her to someone being mean to her. When Patience goes to seek him out to thank him she find him fighting and she knows enough from her mom that she fears he will be hurt. Patience and Sin end up working together but this leads them to waiting more from each other. But the Patience learns that Sin wasn't going to stick to their agreement...can he win her back? Really great read!

Pugilists, the health issues they experience, struggling to maintain an estate, broken hearts and buried feelings all rolled into an incredible story of love. Ms. McKnight does not disappoint. Lady Patience is alienating her floundering family and every member of the ton she approaches with her project. She is hiding behind this project to avoid putting her heart on the line. She is smart, strong possesses a skill that had me smiling and cheering her on and yet is so very vulnerable. Lord Sinclair “Sin” Chambers, Earl of St. Seville. Is just in London to save his estate. His idea of how to do that is interesting and flawed. He is a wonderful character; confident, determined, strong, and very dedicated to his estate, family and tenants. He prefers his estate, which is located on an island to being in London and having to do the pretty. Together Patience and Sin tackle Sin’s dilemma and this brings them together with humor, quick wits and a tenderness that Patience has kept hidden for fear of being hurt. Watching their journey to HEA was a joy. Ms. McKnight brings the health issues of pugilists into sharp contrast with grace. It was interesting to see how the worlds, common man and the ton, come together in a common interest of pugilism. I am interested to see what if anything is in store for Lord Coventry. I am enjoying the various stories in the Wicked Earls’ Club. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Awesome! Earl Of St. Seville by Kristina McKnight is the 11th Book in the Wicked Earls Club, all written by different authors. Earl Of St,. Seville has me inthralled from the first page to the last. Kristina’s characters come alive and her descriptions are amazing. You really can get lost in this story. The story has boxing, kindness, death, a family’s devotion, poverty, greed, deceit, protesting, pride, loneliness, struggles, lies, trust, caring, a cause, and of course love. I highly recommend this book as the rest of the Wicked Earls Club series. You wont be disappointed. Travel back in time to 1822 London England With Sinclair (Sin) Chambers Earl of St. Seville and Lady Patience Lane. ***This book was gifted to me and I am voluntarily reviewing.

Earl Of St. Seville is an awesome historical romance by Christina McKnight. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Ms. McKnight has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with amazing, lovable characters. Patience is determined to inform fighters and sponsors of fights the dangers of pugilist pursuits. Sinclair's father let the coffers run empty making bad investments. Sin goes to London to try and win enough money fighting to rescue his family and workers on Brownsea. Patience and Sin's story is packed with drama, action, humor and spice. I enjoyed Earl Of St. Seville from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Christina McKnight in the future. Earl Of St. Seville is part of The Wicked Earls' Club but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Christina McKnight is able to engage the reader from the beginning of this story and not let go until the last page. She captures the essence of the time period and introduces a new subject not often expanded upon in historical romances. This is a story involving boxing and the uglier side of what can happen to the fighters, which we all know today, but not talked about as much then. Lady Patience Lane, daughter of legendary female boxer and trainer Ivory Bess, is on a mission. Her mother had sustained substantial injuries from the sport and ultimately passed away due to severe injuries. Patience is trying to educate others on the dangers of boxing so this does not happen to them. But as fate would have it, in steps Sinclair Chambers, Earl of St. Seville who has come to London to try to earn money by boxing. He is desperate to generate funds fast for his estates and looks for the best trainer to help him. Of course that is Patience, but he has to convince her first to work with him. Can Patience help him yet follow her missive to keep Sin safe while training? As they spend time together, they are drawn more and more toward each other. But as secrets are revealed and trust is in question, the price might be too high to keep the two together. I truly enjoyed this story and encourage anyone to read. It will keep you captivated with the courage, trust and love of these two characters.

I really enjoyed reading about Sin and Patience. Her greater desire to protect others from suffering what her mother did versus her own reputation speaks much about her personality! Sin reminded me of a cuddly bear of a man. Gentle and patient while falling in love with Patience and getting to know her. You could tell the love he felt for his own family and people by the actions he forced himself to take to protect and care for them all. Meeting Patience's brothers Valor and Merit added to the fun and games! Loved the story and ending! Thank you for the advance copy so I could share my thoughts on the book!

When it comes to love the adjectives are numerous and the emotions are boundless, but there is only ever one conclusion. Love is facing the inevitable, to gain the impossible. Earl of St.. Seville examines love in all it's glory. From the tragedy that inspires a daughter's crusade to the man who has her questioning it all. Patience is the daughter of an exceptional woman. Her mother broke down barriers in a male dominated sport, but in the long run the price was too high. Now the daughter she left behind, will risk everything to protect a man she has only just met. Even at the cost of her heart. Sin and Patience are magnificently captivating. From tragedy rises inspiration. Ms. McKnight continues to captivate readers with her empathetic stories of faith, courage and love.
