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.

    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.

    Due to being on the road hours most days, I'm an avid Audible fan! I live vicariously through the stories as the miles pass.

    "All the elements!"

    Loved this book! Rare to find a romance that takes you from sweet romance to "hot" to laugh out loud scenes and back and forth. Loved the characters - unique Pippa, troubled but good man, Cross. Of course, w/Rosalyn Landor as the narrator, you know it's perfection. Even better than the first book (which was good).

    I am a huge fan of romances and happy endings. I like books that take me away from everyday life and into the land of romance, some adventure and of course happy endings.

    Story
    "Enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would but I would recommend reading the books in order. I disagree with the other reviews. I think Pippa's story can stand alone but is richer having read the first book in the series.


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

    I like when Pippa confronts Castleford and learns there was more to him than she gave him credit. Very likable people.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No I enjoyed the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there had been more interaction with Pen and Bourne to connect the two books. But I feel the other people who reviewed this book were unfair. Pippa is a unique woman and the author developed her personality very well.

    "Sarah MacLean is my Favorite!"

    You simply can't miss with Sarah MacLean and Rosalyn Landor. I have read some of the negative comments and I simply cannot disagree more. The first book of this series was the first book I had listened to by Sarah. I absolutely cannot wait for more on Audible! :) Thank you both for the book and the performance.

    The Pippa and Cross relationship is intriguing. I do wish there had been more interaction with Penelope and Bourne from the first book. I think mingling them into the action would have been interesting. But, nonetheless, the books is fun!

    Story
    "I didn't like it."
    What disappointed you about One Good Earl Deserves a Lover?

    Unbelievably sappy. I could not finish it and I like romance stories.


    Did Rosalyn Landor do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    So so. I did like listening to her voice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It started off well and I liked the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot had a lot of potential then half way through it as if a second author took over. The dialouge turned really sappy. I started wondering how Rosalyn Landor could even keep her voice steady and not break into uncontroled laughter.

    "Worth more than 5 Stars!"

    One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean (Audio Edition)
    Narrated by Rosalyn Landor
    The Rules of Scoundrels #2

    This book is worth far more than 5 stars!!!! It was magnificent! The longing/wanting/need was conveyed to perfection! Someone mentioned breathlessness and yes!! That too!!! I LOVED the characters honesty. Pippa was straightforward and honest throughout the book and I think it was one of the things that made me love every second of this story! Cross was the perfect match for her. He is going into my category of "great leading male" This book is now on my "favourites shelf" and as I had originally bought this series for the next book... I am now unsure of how Ms. MacLean is going to top this!

    Loved the narrator. She did a fantastic job as always!

    "Cute story, but not a unique concept"

    3.5 Star
    My second book by Sarah MacLean and the second book in the Rules of Scoundrels series, this installment follows the brilliant financial keeper of the Fallen Angel, Cross, and the odd but equally intelligent, Philippa.

    Phillipa is a unique female in that she values logic and reasoning rather than emotions to guide her through life's decisions. Knowing the expectations of the society in which she lives in, she agrees to marry Lord Castleton even though she has no desire or understanding of the physical marital workings. She is honorable in her prospective duties as a wife and the vows she will take and thus seeks experience and tutelage in the art or love, desire, and whatever is required of her as a wife. She sets her sights on Mr. Cross for the sole reason that his reputation paints him as an expert in the field in which she seeks knowledge.

    Cross is a ladies man, or at least that's what's commonly thought of him. He is quick witted and intelligent, but he has a past that seems to hold him hostage to guilt.

    This was cute and exactly what you would expect given the synopsis. I didn't enjoy the novel as much as the first installment because there really wasn't anything overly different about the story (compared to other HR novels with similar premises). However, as an addition to the series, it does have good qualities to add.

    Narrator: Rosalyn Landor
    Performance: 5/5
    I've listen to many historical romance novels read by Landor and she does an excellent job narrating the characters and the accents. She is easy to listen to although as a rule, my audio books are almost always played at 1.5x normal speed.

    "A wonderful book.."
    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    She did an awesome job! This is only my 3rd or 4th book in which I listened to Rosalyn Landor and with the exception of Then Came You she's a good narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    LOL.. One reviewer gave this book 3 stars because Penelope and Bourne weren't in it enough. That's just crazy. This was Pippa and Cross/Jasper's story. Why would Penelope and Bourne be in it at all? This was a wonderful story and I loved every single word of it. Pippa was a scientist and Cross was needed for her study on how to entice her husband-to-be. I loved her silliness and her clumsiness. I loved Cross' angst and his feelings that he wasn't good enough for Pippa and even if he didn't kiss her until 68% he did a whole lot more without touching her. It was spectacular! I recommend this and A Rogue by any Other Name to all romance readers who like great sex in their books and great stories of love and romance.
