When the impoverished Andrew Black, Earl of Townson, hits rock bottom, he makes an agreement that will end his eight year poverty streak once and for all. In order to gain his fortune he must do but one simple thing: ruin an innocent girl’s reputation enough to make her flee to America.
Brooke Banks isn’t interested in marriage, or so she thinks. She came to London to have a good time, and that’s exactly what she’s doing. Widely known for her tendency to flout the rules, she suspects nothing when a handsome stranger appears on her doorstep.
Thirteen days, a handful of kisses and one scandalous situation later, Andrew and Brooke will have to choose to stick to their original plans, or decide if a life together is worth the risk.
Ever start reading a book that you didn’t really intend to? I know, unless you are a true reading addict, with a serious problem, in need of a 12-step program, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. However, I bet that at least some of the readers who stop by here know exactly what I mean. That’s how I stumbled upon Intentions of the Earl. I was flipping through my free reads on my Kindle, hunting for something quick to read before I went to sleep. What I thought was probably another short, sweet novella, turned into this full length novel. Once I started reading it, I just couldn’t stop. *sigh*
Intentions of the Earl is one of those books that is just fun to read. Every once in a while you need a book like that. No lessons learned, no heavy drama, just light, witty reading. It wasn’t quite as risque as the title might suggest, although there were some steamy kisses and the potential for a picnic tryst, if not for the bout of laughter that stopped it. As mentioned, the main entertainment in this one came from the wit and comical moments. The characters were just funny. You knew how it was going to end probably from the beginning, but the book kept you reading to see exactly how these characters were going to get out of the situations that they put themselves in.
There are at least 2 more books in the series which I’m not sure if I will pick up or not. Regardless, there are two more Scandalous Sisters that the Banks family needs to get married off. 😉
