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

Adored: A Wanted Novella - Georgia Cates The globetrotting bachelor learns how to be a family man in this sweet yet humorous ode to the fairy tale. There's a magic to the bond between a father and daughter that Ms. Cates captured perfectly. Surprise daddy scenarios are a treasure because there is something so sexy about a man taking his first awkward steps in fatherhood. Judd was a wanderer. His career took him many places but one adorable little girl taught him the meaning of love and one special woman gave him his heart's desire.
Precious and priceless.

Adored in Autumn (Seasons Book 4)
Adored in Autumn (Seasons Book 4) - Jess Michaels Ms. Michaels saved the best for last. The masterful seductress has whet many an appetite with her jaw dropping moments and heartbreaking reveals. Finally, the main course is on full display with Adored in Autumn. Felicity has been a mystery that has been exposed little by little with each Seasons novel. Now all the drama, passion and intensity are laid out for all to see in a stunning wrap up to a magnetic series. Felicity was more than the sum of her tragic life. Her inner strength gave her the tools she needed to rescue herself from personal tragedy and to face her fears with a head held high. So it's fitting that the tigress that is Felicity Barbridge found her own warrior in such an unorthodox man like Asher.

Adored (Club Destiny Book 10)
Adored (Club Destiny Book 10) - Nicole Edwards Do you trust me, McKenna?”

Yes, McKenna you should. Because you know Tag is going to make it soooo worth your while. Tag and McKenna find their way to Happy Ever Married in this novella. This couple is one of my favorites from Infatuation (Club Destiny #4). Although I love McKenna’s spunky attitude, its Tag that I really enjoy reading. He is definitely an alpha male, but Ms. Edwards writes him in a way you learn his vulnerable side. And she does not disappoint here. Tag wants the perfect getaway and surprise wedding for the love of his life – and he pulls it off with all our Club Destiny friends.

This is a novella that could stand alone if you want as the story lends itself not to make too many references to the original novel that would lose a reader. However, once you get to know them, I dare you not to pick up book #4 to learn how they got here. The novella does tie up some secondary relationships and moves along at a reasonable expected pace.

If you are looking for a fun, fast summer read on vacation, this is a recommendation to fill that spot on your travel itinerary. If you are a Club Destiny fan, you’ll want to see what steam Tag and McKenna burn up through the pages.
