Boxer meets the woman he is supposed to have killed... hijinks ensue
No Good Duke Goes Unpunished: Number 3 in series (Rules of Scoundrels) - Sarah MacLean

Temple fights people who have lost their money with very few exceptions, one is the brother of the woman he's accused of killing years ago, only she isn't dead. She turns up again in his life and he is not sure what to do about her and about their mutual past. She is the one person who doesn't fear him and now they have to learn a way to go forward. I enjoyed it, wanted them to talk a bit more occasionally and sometimes the misunderstandings were more intended for humour than anything else but it was entertaining.

With her head held high
A Scot in the Dark (Scandal & Scoundrel) - Sarah MacLean

The Duke of Warnick never expected to have to have much interaction with his English properties or his dukedom, he was 18th in line for the title, and within 2 weeks all the other elegible males in the list were dead. A proud scotsman he wants no truck with the title but has enough of a conscience to keep the estates and houses going.
He doesn't realise that he also inherited a ward from one of the estates, and now shes about to create a scandal. She has been painted naked and it's about to go on display in a major exhibition. She wants freedom and he wants her married and away from scandal and wants back to Scotland yesterday.

Fun relationships , entertaining characters, I enjoyed the read.

breaking out
Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake - Sarah MacLean

Lady Calpurnia Hartwell is tired of being good, it hasn't got her anywhere and now she's approaching the shelf at speed and she feels like she hasn't really lived.  She makes a list of what she wants to do, would like to do in her life and she decides to go about doing them.  She enlists the help of Gabriel St.John, the Marquess of Ralston to help and he discovers that he's more interested in her than he thought.

 

Fun romp with a character trying out some things that stretch her and the limits society put on her.

slow realisation of love
The Rogue Not Taken (Scandal & Scoundrel) - Sarah MacLean

Well that was interesting.  Sophie pushes the bratty husband of her sister in a pond when she finds him with another woman.  She flees the scene, hoping that she will get away. However she ends up in Kingscotte 'King' the Marquess of Eversley's coach as his footman who is heading to his father's estate, many miles from London.

 

She wants to escape the world of London and the strictures but she has no real way to do this without a cascade.

 

King has a problem with his father and the death of an early love he doesn't want love in his life again but she is tempting and he finds himself caring a lot about her and what happens into her. There's shennigans and misunderstanding and a lot of fun and sparkling banter and I really enjoyed it.

Ten

After reading the first book in Sarah MacLean's “Love By Numbers” series, Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake I was practically dying to read the sequel “Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord.” Unfortunately, this novel did not seem to capture my attention like Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake and I have often found myself trying to finish this book as quickly as I can.

Ever since Nicholas St. John was named “London's Lord to Land” in a ladies' magazine, he has been avoiding all the women in London. However, when the Duke of Leighton told Nick about his missing sister, Nick was glad to take this opportunity to escape! However, when Nick comes to the secretive Townsend Park, home of Minerva House, he finds the daughter of the late wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend and he realizes that she is no ordinary woman! But will both lovers ever truly love each other once their dark secrets are revealed?

There were a few good things that I did like about this book. I really loved the love scenes and the hero and heroine! Sarah MacLean had done an awesome job at making Nick the all-time, sexy and ever handsome hero! Whew! I just loved how Nick was willing to help out Isabel and the girls of Minerva House with their financial troubles and I just adored Nick for being honest with his feelings about Isabel. But, not only do I love Nick's personality, but his physical appearance is like the body of a god! I loved how Sarah MacLean described his body as being large and muscular, which are two things I love about my romance heroes! Now about Isabel, I loved the fact that Isabel is such a strong heroine and I loved the way that she stood up to any kind of authority that threatened to tear her apart from the girls of Minerva House. But, probably the best part about this novel were the love scenes between Isabel and Nick! I mean, this book is littered with love scenes galore and man, these scenes are hot and sizzling!

Now, here are some reasons why I gave this book a three star rating. For one thing, I often get annoyed with the heroine, Isabel, since she has some major trust issues to work through. I know that Isabel is scared to trust men because of what her father did to her mother and I do understand what she is going through, but still, I think that she could have at least put a little trust in Nick. I also felt sorry for Nick throughout the book because it is evident that he truly does love Isabel, but Isabel always seem to push him away from her no matter what Nick does to earn her love and it got so irritating after awhile. Also, I thought that this book was a little boring at times because the plot seem to slow down in many scenes and there are barely any action scenes in this book, so it was sometimes hard for me to get through this book without a bit of action.

Overall, this book is an average read for me. Even though “Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord” has some really cute scenes between Nick and Isabel, I just wished that Isabel was a little more trusting of Nick and I wished that there were more action scenes to keep my attention to the plot. Even though this is not my favorite book out of the series, I cannot wait to read the third book, Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart
