Publisher's Summary

Since being named "London's Lord to Land" by a popular ladies' magazine, Nicholas St. John has been relentlessly pursued by every matrimony-minded female in the ton. So when an opportunity to escape fashionable society presents itself, he eagerly jumps - only to land in the path of the most determined, damnably delicious woman he's ever met!

The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though she is used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father's recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother's birthright. The sinfully handsome, eminently eligible Lord Nicholas could be the very salvation she seeks.

But the lady must be wary and not do anything reckless and foolish…like falling madly, passionately in love.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

This book had me from the first chapter! I loved the banter between the characters and the h/h. The love scenes were of the "perfect temperature" (hot) and the narrator was very good. I do have a question for any avid historical romance readers out there however... WHAT IS IT WITH THE SENTENCE REPEATED IN EVERY STORY...SOMETIMES SEVERAL TIMES..THAT SAYS "SHE/HE RELEASED THE BREATH SHE/HE HADN'T KNOWN SHE/HE WAS HOLDING". Is this some type of code for something between authors or am I doomed to roll my eyes each and every time I hear it?? lol ME OTHER FAVORITE IS..." SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE SHE ENDED AND HE BEGAN " ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THESE TWO SENTENCES... okay, my rant is over for today. That being said, I did enjoy this book and am onto the next. OH, and one more thing...when books contain the same characters from book to book ...PLEASE NUMBER THEM FOR READING ORDER!!! (big sigh) I feel much better now. ;)

Very well read EXCEPT for the multitude of mispronounciationsvv

This was my second listening and my first impression has been confirmed. It drives me crazy that so many producers of audiobooks allow repeated mispronunciations of common words. Ton should never be pronounced "tone" in an historical romance. Mary Jane Wells did a stellar job of dramatizing this book.
The is one of my favorites of the books I have read by Sarah MacLean. I recommend the Nine..., Ten....,Eleven... Series.

Awesome book and narrator..

Any additional comments?

I loved everything about this book and I don't even know how many time I laughed out loud. Loved Nick and Isabel, as well as the secondary characters, Lara, Rock, Jane, Kate, Gwen, James and Georgiana. It was a great love story filled with laughs, sexual tension and sex. Gotta love it..

As to the narrator: WOW!! I had never listened to Jane Wells before but I have to say she did a phenomenal job reading this book. Her emotions were just where they were supposed to be, laughing, crying, yelling, whispering but her sarcasm was the very best I've ever heard. I would definitely listen to her again. Awesome job, Ms. Wells..

The fun series continues! Loved that the twin brother found a perfect match in this book. This book features all of my favorites in heroines. Thank you Sara MacLean for an enjoyable listen.

narrator not as good as Carolyn Morris in book 1

It is true that the narrator can really bring a book to life. Carolyn Morris did such a splendid job on book 1, she was hard to follow. I found her male voice too insipid for the Nick who we met in book 1. I am just about to start book 3 with another narrator [maybe series should keep the same narrator ] I know the story line will be good, hopefully so will the narrator.

Perfect Encore

This was a wonderful second book, as good or better than 9 Rules to Break. I thought both characters were very strong and incredibly likable (again possibly more so than book 1). Definitely worth a credit.

Great story!

Loved this story but I don't believe it was as good as book 1. I didn't like their banter and the women of the house. It was times I laughed out loud.

Who knows what you'll find in the country?

I enjoy Sarah MacLean's writing. I liked the new characters in 10 Ways, especially Isabel and Rock, and the carry-over characters from 9 Rules. I read the Rules of Scoundrels series first and loved it, so I was glad to see Georgiana's backstory. Nick and Rock's banter was hilarious, but Nick and Isabel's banter was more so. I especially enjoyed watching them work together in crisis. The mystery of the bulan was an intriguing thread.

As for the narrator, she was good, but had several annoying pronunciations (the ton, assumed, proven, palatable). I did like the way she distinguished thought and dialog. And especially when Nick and Isabel were trying to talk themselves out of something. At the end, Juliana's Italian accent did not carry over from the last narrator (only the Italian words).
