Series: Love by Numbers #2
Since being named one of London’s "Lords to Land" by a popular ladies’ magazine, Nicholas St. John has been relentlessly pursued by every matrimony-minded female in the ton. So when an opportunity to escape fashionable society presents itself, he eagerly jumps—only to land in the path of the most determined, damnably delicious woman he’s ever met!The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father’s recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother’s 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...like falling madly, passionately in love.
Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord is the second book of the Love by Numbers series, and this time it's Lord Nicholas, Gabriel's brother, the one who falls in love.
Lady Isabel Townsed is without money and a house full of people, including her young brother, the next Earl. I loved Isabel, because she could take care of herself, her brother and all of the other ones who needed her help. She was brave and stubborn, but still very sweet. She would do whatever it takes to protect the ones she loves.
Nicholas was a surprise to me. I liked that I could see him as the sexy lord instead of the sweet brother of the sexy duke. I thought he was going to be sweeter, but I liked the rough past he had and that at the same time he was intellectual.
As in the first book, Sarah MacLean managed to make me feel butterflies while reading their romance. It wasn't as wicked as the first book, but very funny and still was awesome, specially the ending. I repeatedly found myself laughing out loud because of Isabel, who is not the perfect lady.
Overall, I loved it. I'm a fan.
