My Kind of Earl (The Mating Habits of Scoundrels)
“Jane Pickering is the heroine every other romance-novel protagonist needs: she is writing a book intended to teach the young ladies of London how to deal with the opposite sex, from dull men to scoundrels. Her studies, however, are soon to take on a much more hands-on element. During an exploratory trip to a brothel (for research, of course), she encounters Raven: tall, dark, handsome, and not nearly as good at pretending to be a society man as he thinks. Their chance encounter might be the only time they see one another, but for the fact that Raven’s birthmark reminds Jane of something she has seen before. Raven has secrets in his past, things which even he may not know.
The first book in Lorret’s series delighted me with its unconventional heroine and the genuine emotion that blossomed between the two protagonists. The second certainly lives up to the first, and I’m very much looking forward to the next in the series. Lorret has a knack not only for writing scoundrels (and her scoundrels are certainly delicious) but also for women who not only proclaim to be cut from a different cloth than other romantic heroines but read that way as well. Add to that her witty prose, and you have a winning book in the making.”
