“Lady Philippa Marbury is. . .odd.

The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She’s looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest–fourteen days to research the exciting parts of life. It’s not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London’s darker corners.

She needs. . .a Scoundrel.

She needs Cross, the clever, controlled partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, with a carefully crafted reputation for wickedness. But reputations often hide the darkest secrets, and when the unconventional Pippa boldly propositions him, seeking science without emotion, she threatens all he works to protect. He is tempted to give Pippa precisely what she wants…but the scoundrel is more than he seems, and it will take every ounce of willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.”

An absolute page turner…

Sarah MacLean is a real gem when it comes to creating large casts of characters that grab your attention so well that you can’t help but hope they wind up getting a story all on their own. In this case, not one, but two characters from her first Rules for Scoundrels series book A ROGUE BY ANY OTHER NAME are front and center.

Proving once and for all that men DO make passes at girl’s who wear glasses and that scoundrels aren’t always what they appear to be, ONE GOOD EARL DESERVES A LOVER is a perfectly, quirky and sweet story of an outwardly “mis-matched” pair, finding each other while discovering hidden truths about themselves along the way.

An absolute page turner and just another example of why Sarah MacLean continues to remain on my list of “Never Disappoints” writers.
