You know what makes me happy? Books like One Good Earl Deserves a Lover. I put up with reading the entire book on my phone's Kindle app just so I had the chance to read it. I don't risk eye strain for just any book, you know. And in case you're wondering, One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is worth the risk. Also, the title's fun to say.Pippa is my favorite sort of historical fiction heroine: strong, intelligent, and logical. Toss out the smelling salts. She's progressive--far beyond the times--and I like that. I like it a lot. And while Cross didn't quite flip my switch (What? Redheads just don't do it for me.), he was suitably fun and tortured and determined to do the right thing, even if what was "right" was wrong.Like A Rogue by Any Other Name, One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Yes, again I have devoured the book in an afternoon. I don't do that for just any book either. With the right amount of wit and emotion-tugging, One Good Earl Deserves a Lover delivers an escape read that has me wanting more. Why do I have to wait until November for the next book?The Rules of Scoundrels books do a good job of setting up the next scoundrel in each book, and I can't wait to get my hands on Temple. His book, rather. Until then, I shall survive on Sarah MacLean's other series.
