An Earl by Any Other Name 

(Sins and Scandals) 

by Lauren Smith

Cover Design: Elizabeth Turner

Release Date: August 1, 2017


An earl in the streets, a rogue in the sheets . . .

Leopold Graham, Lord Hampton, was never a man to let propriety stand in the way of his pursuit of pleasure. Hedonism is his only desire in life---until his father's death saddles him with debts that threaten to bankrupt the entire family. Now the only thing that stands between him and utter ruin is marriage to a proper, and preferably wealthy, young lady.

Ivy Leighton is no sweet English rose. Perhaps it's her gypsy roots, but she would rather make a spectacle of her independent spirit than sit quietly on the sidelines. If that means that the only place she'll ever have in society is firmly on the shelf, then so be it. But when Ivy runs into the handsome, rakish Leo who's looking for a respectable, well-bred wife, she can't stop thinking about the troubles they can get into. Now she just has to convince him that a life with her is really what he needs.

Leo and Ivy had been friends when they were younger but tragedy had separated them and they haven't seen one another in years. In this story Ivy and Leo are reunited but there are many secrets being kept so the question is will their reunion be a good one?

One thing Leo should know is Watch out when your mother gets involved with your love life, because she knows what's best for you. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Leo come to terms with his feelings about Ivy. This was a wonderful start to the Sins and Scandals series by Lauren Smith who is my go to author for Historical Romances, there is just something about the way she writes that transforms our contemporary world into a world of long ago. Take a trip back in time with this wonderful friends to lovers story, you wont be sorry!
