Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since being named “Londons Lord to Land” by a popular ladies magazine, Nicholas St. John has been relentlesslypursued by every matrimony-minded female in the ton. So when an opportunity to escape fashionable society presentsitself, he eagerly jumps—only to land in the path of the most determined, damnably delicious woman hes 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 fathers recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brothers 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.

Synopsis:

When artfully attempting to land a lord, a lady must always remain highly mysterious--and make him chase her, in this rollicking follow-up to "Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake." Original.

Synopsis:

Sarah MacLean, one of the freshest and most exciting new voices in historical romance fiction, shares the Ten Ways to be Adored When Landing a Lord—her second witty and deliciously sensual Regency romance novel and a treat for fans of Julia Quinn, Julie Garwood, and Lisa Kleypas. In Ten Ways to be Adored When Landing a Lord—the unforgettable follow-up to MacLeans Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake—a highborn but penniless young woman needs to enchant “Londons Lord to Land” without the much sought after gentleman realizing hes being enchanted!

About the Author

Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born centuries too late for her own season. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book. Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels. She loves to hear from readers.

Follow your heart not the rules and love will capture you!

Lady Isabel Townsend has been picking up the pieces of everyone’s life since her father deserted her family when she was barely old enough to dress herself. Her mother died shortly after and Isabel knew that the only way to keep it together was to stay busy do what comes naturally to her – take care of everyone but herself. So that is what Isabel did and taking in those rejected by proper London society seemed an easy way to use that skill to everyone’s advantage. The problem was having the idea and keeping it financially solvent when you father spent every dime the estate made was the difficult part.

Lord Nicholas St. John has just been voted the “Lord to Land” the Regency version of most eligible bachelor by a tabloid and it is making his life chaotic. He doesn’t want the title, is tired of his twin brother finding complete pleasure in his misery and plans to run from it as fast as possible. When a job offer comes up to find the sister of a Duke who has gone missing Nicholas mastery of the hunt returns to the surface and he once again goes after his prey. It is something he is well known for and a talent he is not sure how it developed but one he takes full advantage of especially when all these eligible women have decided to follow his every move.

Finding the missing girl was easy, turning her back over to her brother becomes impossible when Nicholas meets Isabel the woman who is hiding her. Nicholas realizes that Isabel in need of a caretaker and he is a sucker for women that need him. But in truth Isabel doesn’t want him anywhere near her at the off chance he may discover what she is up to and men in general have brought nothing but pain to her. But she does need money, has those statues to sell and he is an antiquarian expert so maybe she could get him in and out before he realizes the depth of her deceit. Keep dreaming Isabel the hunter in Nicholas has sensed new prey and he loves this game he has decided to embark on.

Throw in a flooded out road, a young earl in need of some manly advice, this beautiful damsel in distress and all the emotions Nicholas hides so well come to the surface and take his breath away. Both Nicholas and Isabel have so many secrets and as one after another is exposed the walls come down between them and stolen kisses turn into passionate nights and a desire to no long be alone or afraid.

This book follows Nine Rules to Break When Landing a Lord and while I thought that book was spectacular this one is even better. Isabel is so strong and doesn’t need anyone to take care of her but she needs a partner which is something Nicholas has never been asked to stand in as before. They both learn the ropes of life are slippery so be careful when trying to pull yourself and someone else up. Isabel is fabulous and Nicholas is quite a white knight but certainly does have shining armor. Wonderful read everyone can enjoy.
