I really like Sarah MacLean. I started reading her YA novel "The Season" and moved up to her Romance Novels. Sometimes it is hard to find a good novel in the romance genre that has a story line to it.
Sarah MacLean, I think has a similar writing style to Sabrina Jefferies and Johanna Lindsey. She writes in the Regency period (1800s) and her characters draw you in.
This book is related to her previous novel 9 Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake but it is not necessary to read 9 before 10.
This story is about Lady Isabel Townsend who runs a women's shelter type organization out of her-almost falling apart-mansion. She struggles to pay off the debts left to her by her Father and to secure her young brother's birthright. Enter Nicholas St. John who is given the title of "London's Lord to Land" by the ton. He is asked to help find his friends younger sister who has mysteriously ran off. Well he finds her but also Lady Isabel and begins to uncover what she is doing out in the country. Did I mention is is illegal at this time to be providing a place for women away from their families...women are men's property. Not all of the women have wealthy, privileged brothers looking for them, no, some have committed petty crimes.
So what does St. John do? Well I guess you will have to read and find out.
Let me know your thoughts if you have read this book!
