Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord - Sarah MacLean I have two gripes about this series: one, the titles are ridiculously long to type out; two, I don't have the next book in my hands RIGHT NOW.But the titles are FUN. I get serious giggles every time it rhymes in my head. No, I'm not drunk. And I've already requested my library copy. Duke of Leighton, you have some 'splaining to do.So now that we've cleared up my "gripes" about this series, can I just say that I adored Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord? I liked the absence of the ton and balls; Isabel's situation is so much more precarious by being out in the country and so very alone.And then there's Nick. Chased out of London by ladies attempting to land him. Determined not to follow in the footsteps of his parents. Heh. They always think they can resist, don't they? But put self-sufficient, beautiful Isabel in his path, and... well, this is a romance.I appreciate that the characters of this series are not cookie cutter---their circumstances different, their motivations different, and yet you love them all the same. Because we met Nick in his brother and Callie's book, Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, we know only enough to be intrigued. And Nick doesn't disappoint.Isabel doesn't disappoint, either. She is fierce and determined and she cares about the women who have been cast out or escaped terrible conditions. She's not without her faults, but again, one of my favorite types of historical romance heroines.I loathe the day I run out of Sarah MacLean books to read.
