Review: Intentions of the Earl by Rose Gordon


Book Description:

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.

***This is a full-length novel.

Adult-content rating:

My Review:

Pretty good book.  Who doesn't love a story where the guy is going off a bet to ruin a girl then falls deeply in love with her?
Lord Townson, is broke and in debt to a "friend", goes to meet a young lady to ruin her.
The story of Andrew and Brooke is like other love stories and their courtship is like any other, except he only started the courtship so he could ruin her in order to get something back from his so-called friend.
I loved how you could tell Andrew was always second-guessing himself if what he was doing was right/or getting his deed back was that important. 
Of course we have the annoying Lady Olivia always popping in and trying to steal the spotlight from Brooke.  And the highly Miss Proper, Liberty, Brooke's sister.
You can grab up this cute story on Amazon for free, but be warned you will want to read Liberty's story as well but that is $4.
