Publisher's Summary

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 - 14 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 his willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.

    "Well done and fun."

    Slower getting going than others, but a good listen. I enjoyed it and apparently need 11 words to finish this review, so have fun listening.

    Story
    "Pretty terrible book"

    I've read about 80% of this book but it's enough to do a review. I've never heard so much endless and useless conversation, ridiculous introspection and lack of actual story. The quality of the writing is poor, the story convoluted. I'm now listening to a love scene during which the heroine is naming the bones of the hero's arm in Latin.

    I do not understand the mostly positive reviews.

    "Kudos to Rosalyn Landor"
    What did you love best about One Good Earl Deserves a Lover?

    It is a very entertaining series by the great Sarah MacLean and complimented by Landor.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Another stellar performance by Landor, who gives distinct personality to each character.

    "Ended Too Abruptly...."

    .....didn't explain how anyone reacted to Pippa and Cross at the end. No explanation of what happened to Cross' sister...disappointed with that.

    "The Second is the Best"
    Would you listen to One Good Earl Deserves a Lover again? Why?

    This is an absolutely wonderful book. You will listen over and over. Pippa is refreshing and adorable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was a fresh story line. I enjoyed it so much.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love all of Rosaln Landor's books but this is definitely one of my favorites.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    One of my favorite moments in this book is when Pippa convinces Cross to help her with her experiment.


    Any additional comments?

    Love it. You will to.

    Story
    "I liked it."
    What did you love best about One Good Earl Deserves a Lover?

    I liked Lady Pippa- she's so bright and well-read with very little understanding of people. Cross has a troubled past- but with highly inappropriate behaviour, she manages to get him to pull out of himself- all very entertaining. One of the most amusing of the stories in this series so far. I recommend it for a credit.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Good Earl Deserves a Lover?

    When Cross is trying to get her to leave by being deliberately rude- a real stretch for him- and she just looks at him and says- 'I wish you would call me Pippa', like he wasn't even talking.

    Story
    "Missing something"

    I didn't hate this book; I liked a good portion of it. But felt there was a lot to be desired and that what I liked isn't enough to recommend it anyone other than true fans of the genre. I think one of the reasons I am disappointed is because the book could have been great.

    I wanted to slap the hero and then have a sit down chat with the author on repetitive writing.

    Cross seemed to be suffering from 'oh woe is me syndrome'. His reasons were explained but I was left not caring about it. I felt like he was throwing himself a 6 year pity party.

    Another issue I had would be a major plot point so I won't go into detail other than to say I don't like it when characters keep things close to home when there is no real reason to. Especially if it's not really a secret. It's like, not telling someone they have broccoli stuck in their teeth because you are afraid you will upset them. It is far more upsetting to walk in the bathroom and see that said food mocking you from the mirror.

    Comments or thoughts were also repeated throughout the book. "Oh, you are marrying that guy because he likes dogs and you like dogs? Yes, awesome, why don't you repeat that bit of information every time that particular person is mentioned or in the same room. It is okay, your readers aren't all that attentive, we don't mind, really, because, we need to be reminded that we should be listening to this book, not zoning out thinking about how awesome the color blue is. Just like we need to be told that our male(s) aren't worthy, because the first 8 times were not enough." /sarcasm

    I groaned aloud towards the end, when I started counting how many times the word 'deserve' was used. I felt like I was in a meeting where the speech giver forgot there are other words in the dictionary besides 'like' or 'that', and to pass the time I was counting how many times that person said either of those two words.

    As usual Rosalyn Landor does a superb job.

    I loved Pippa in the first book and felt that Cross would be a great hero, but he ended up being a bit too whiny and way too much like the first books hero for my taste.

    "Perfection!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely , this was a wonderful book and a great experience . I would even recommend it to someone who is not usually a fan of Regency era London romances and know that they would totally agree . l will most definitely listen to it again...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found that I was very quickly drawn into the story, loving and hurting and laughing with the characters as if I knew them all in person.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oh yes... I know that I can always count on her. She is masterful at giving each character its individuality and personality. Not once do you ever have to wonder which characters voice that is. She is amazingly distinct... I forever wonder how she does it! All you hear is the story, the people, the emotions.... with Rosalyn Landor's performance you hear and live the story, not listen to a narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Indeed! I laughed out loud, wiped tears from my cheeks, got angry and frustated, felt elation and despair... good tears, mad tears, sad tears, and gloriously happy tears!


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to (and read) a LOT of romance books and regency era London is my favorite. However I find that I truly enjoy most books but there is one here or there that really winds me into the tale. Once in a while the story drags you so totally into it that you really literally and absolutely FEEL the story. This is one of those!

    ☆☆Word of warning☆☆.. this author has two books on audio at the moment and when I read the summary for the other one I discovered it was the first in a series and that this was supposed to be second....

    Story
    "Good start but the ending was a bit incomplete."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if you have read the first book. It is part of the series. I love all three in the series. Wish the ending was a bit better. The ending left me with lots of questions which is a bit annoying. What happened to the bad guy? What happened to the other Earl? And the bad guy's daughter?


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I really like the couple, they are suited. Compare to a lot of other love in first sight couple who don't have anything in command. These two are strangely suited. Makes me smile.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Chase


    Any additional comments?

    Roslyn Landor is an awesome narrator. It is nice to listen to her voice.
