Book Review: One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover (The Rules of Scoundrels #2) by Sarah MacLean
Genre: Adult Fiction (Historical Romance)
Date Published: January 29, 2013
Publisher: Self

The second in the incredible new Rules of Scoundrels series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean. 

Lady Philippa Marbury is odd. The bespectacled, brilliant fourth daughter of the Marquess of Needham and Dolby cares more for books than balls, flora than fashion and science than the season. Nearly engaged to Lord Castleton, Pippa wants to explore the scandalous parts of London she's never seen before marriage. And she knows just who to ask: the tall, charming, quick-witted bookkeeper of The Fallen Angel, London's most notorious and coveted gaming hell, known only as Cross. 

Like any good scientist, Pippa's done her research and Cross's reputation makes him perfect for her scheme. She wants science without emotion—the experience of ruination without the repercussions of ruination. And who better to provide her with the experience than this legendary man? But when this odd, unexpected female propositions Cross, it's more than tempting . . . and it will take everything he has to resist following his instincts—and giving the lady precisely what she wants.

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is the second book in The Rules of Scoundrels series by Sarah MacLean. I've read the series out of order(Yes, I know.. I've broken one of my, so this is actually the third book I've read in the series, but I think this is my favorite so far. Pippa is so much fun! I love how her mind works and how she speaks. She says whatever pops into her head. Cross is perfect for her. They're perfect for each other. They are both little smarty pants. The guys in this series have all been extremely swoon-worthy. They call themselves scoundrels, and they really believe they are, but they are such gentlemen too. Naughty gentlemen, yes, but gentlemen none the less. Cross is no exception. His charm and swagger oozes from the pages. Sarah MacClean has romance down to an art. If a scene is written in such a way as to have its reader all in a tizzy when the characters haven't even touched each other... That, my friends, is a gifted writer!

“To be honest, I thought it was similar to animal husbandry."

Sally's tone turned dry. "Sometimes, my lady I'm afraid it isn't that different."

Pippa paused, considering the ords. "Is that so?"

"Men are uncomplicated, generally," Sally said, all too sage. "They're beasts when they want to be."

"Brute ones!"

"Ah, so you understand."

Pippa tilted her head to one side. "I've read about them."

Sally nodded. "Erotic texts?"

"The book of Common Prayer....”

Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born far too late for her own season. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book.

Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels. She loves to hear from readers.
