    One thought on “An Earl by Any Other Name”

    1. 5 - "Being respectable was going to kill him." Stars!Lauren Smith is one of a few authors who I will happily read Historical Romance by, mainly because it’s so well-crafted you just get lost in the story. An Earl by Any Other Name; the first book from her new Sins and Scandals series met all of my expectations and then some.Love was a risk he would not takeI really enjoyed Leo and Ivy’s story, it’s a sort of old and new money collides type of tale, except Leo’s old money has pretty much [...]

    2. A quick trip from lust to loveUnfortunately, I felt this one was a little rushed. It wasn't an overly long story which meant we have to go from meeting to HEA in 164 pages. In this case, it wasn't just that it was rushed, that made me squint and scowl at my Kindle, it was the dreadedduty or love?Leo is carrying the burden of his father's death in his mistress's bed. While Leo and his mother held no love for the man, they still must suffer through the humiliation. After their year or mourning, Le [...]

    3. I'm a huge Downton Abbey fan and when I saw Matthew Crawley die I just knew I had to write a story where some form of Matthew had a happy ending. So I dreamed up the scandalous tale of Ivy, the half-gypsy heiress and the reformed bad boy Leo who's now facing life as an Earl after his father dies in his mistresses bed leaving Leo and his mother in scandal and potential financial ruin. I had a blast researching the suffragette movement and giving my heroine Ivy a voice when it came to politics and [...]

    7. This first book in Lauren Smith’s Sins and Scandals series may be short but it’s got more sass, steam, and sweetness than many full length novels. Some novellas seem too long, as if they should have been a short story. Some end too soon, like they should have been a full length novel. But An Earl By Any Other Name is perfect. A fully developed story that keeps you riveted from beginning to end. Leopold Graham, Lord Hampton and his mother had been a year out of mourning but no one had forgo [...]

    8. He's a rogue of the first order. Never met a woman he couldn't tempt or a party he wouldn't enjoy. She's a firecracker. Independent and meant to be the center of attention. Even if that notice, lands her in some sticky situations and having to face down some judgmental people. Ivy and Graham are two halves of a whole, but too bullheaded to admit it. Lauren Smith has never been afraid of explosive tales and carnal delights. An Earl By Any Other Name stays true to that formula but throws in some l [...]

    9. ARC REVIEW An Earl by Any Other Name is the first book of Lauren Smith's new Sins and Scandals series. It's novella length and insta-lust to love. I know they say never judge a book by it's cover but I assumed (yeah I know) that this was a Regency or Victorian historical romance (strictly judging the dress), nope it's Edwardian early 1910. It really threw me off when they started talking about automobiles. Apparently I don't pay close enough attention to the Italic print at the beginning of a ch [...]

    10. Very cute story set in the early 1900s. Leo, Earl of Hampton, is in financial trouble. He plans to marry a wealthy neighbor to whom he is not attracted to save his estate. Much to his dismay, his mother is involved in the women’s suffrage movement. She is planning a house party and talks him into it by saying she won’t go to the political meeting. One of the guests, Ivy Leighton, spent the first years of her life living at his estate as her mother worked there. Leo was older but played with [...]

    14. Leopold Graham, Lord Hampton, was never a man to let propriety stand in the way of his pursuit of pleasure.

Now the only thing that stands between him and utter ruin is marriage to a proper, and preferably wealthy, young lady & he decides Mildred Pepperwirth (love the name) fits the bill.Ivy Leighton is no sweet English rose, she’s th [...]

    15. A fairly light hearted read. I loved that Leo's mother, despite the travesty of her marriage (or perhaps because of it) and her being a lady of Society, is unapologetically a suffragette. Leo made my heart hurt at first with the way he was so stressed about fixing the damages done by his late father's whoring ways and the way the economy is changing. Planning to marry so as to save those that rely on him instead of for love seemed so tragic. His mother and her devious machinations to show him th [...]

    16. My escape into historical romance typically settles on the Regency period, so this story was a change for me. Based in the Edwardian period, with very Downton Abbey like moments, this novella was cute.Check out my full review on my blog For the Love of Words.

    17. Actually, there really wasn’t a story. Leo and Ivy were both likable but the story was so filled with sexual thoughts from Leo and his constant inner thoughts about how he wanted Ivy but really had to marry Miss Mildred Pepperwirth for her dowry. It became quite annoying. Of course, everyone got their HEA but there could have been more story and less sexual thoughts. There was explicit sex but I skipped it.

    18. Leopold Graham, Lord Hampton, short on funds and long on looks and charm has resigned himself to marrying for convenience after the scandal of his fathers’ death. Half gypsy heiress Ivy Leighton knows what it is to be different and vows never to marry and give up her rights to a husband as she takes up the suffragette cause. Yet Leo and Ivy each secretly harbor the dream of finding happiness and their one true love.Lauren Smith continues to bring wonderful characters to the pages of her romanc [...]

    21. This review first appeared on A Weebish Book BlogAN EARL BY ANY OTHER NAME by Lauren Smith is the novella length first in Smith’s new series, Sins and Scandals.

    23. QUITE AN AVERAGE HISTORICAL ROMANCETHAT SADLY LACKS A GENUINE SPARK OF INTEREST BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS.

    25. Posted on What I'm ReadingA few days ago I read, An Earl By Any Other Name by Lauren Smith. I absolutely loved the story. I'm only gripe will be the cover. The cover reminds me of most regency stories, so when I came to find out it was set in 1911 I was a little shock. That's pretty much my only issue with the story. However, it's a wonderful story set in a time where there a lot of change going on. We have women who want the right to vote, would like a voice in the world. They want to be more t [...]

    30. This bookIS BOOK!!! If you are a fan of Downton Abby, or Titanic, or the early 20th century (pre WW 1), you will love this book. Laure Smith masterfully takes us back to the age where there was still a touch of elegance in society, where a good name could make or break a fortune, and when you still had to choose between marrying for love and for wealth. This book reminded me of the relationship between Lady Sybill and Tom Branson from Downton Abby, but in reverse. In Lauren's book, the hero was [...]
