What An Earl Wants
What An Earl Wants by Shirley Karr Book Summary
What’s a lord to do?
Benjamin, Earl of Sinclair, is living in chaos. So many of his well-trained servants are pairing up and running off to be wed that his friends begin calling him The Matchmaking Earl. Fortunately, his talented new secretary, J. Quincy, begins setting the household to rights. But imagine Sinclair’s surprise when he discovers the “J” stands for Josephine. His favorite employee is a lady in disguise!
Jo desperately needs this position, and never actually lied about her gender … though she didn’t expect Sinclair to figure out her secret so soon. If the ton finds out, the scandal could be devastating. She’s only going to stay long enough to earn sufficient money to move her ailing sister away from London. Can she succeed before word gets out and scandal brings them both down? And after working so closely with the handsome, charming Sinclair, can she leave with her heart intact … even if the earl now wants Jo as a match for himself?
Originally published January 2005. Lightly edited for 2021 as part of the Scandalous Ladies series. (What can I say, I fell in love with my hero, his brother, and his brother's friends. I hope you will, too.)
Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone novel -- a complete story arc, no cliffhangers, no family tree chart required to keep track of who is who -- but most readers prefer to enjoy them in the order they're written and published.

Great book. Tons of fun plots. Happy ending that is not completely unrealistic.
This is a highly entertaining and romantic story. Very smart, too - with many humorous elements. The characters are immensely likeable.
I loved the character’s in this book and the story. I laughed many times reading this book. The story kept me entertained and wanting more. The transition Quincy went through is written amazingly and her relationship with Sinclair is one of my favorites, their up and downs were realistic, not once did I find myself having a problem of understanding any part of this story. This is one I will be reccomending others to read.
Ahhh…such a beautiful story with lively characters you’ll fall in love with! Don’t pass on this book!
Great book and great series. Very strong female characters. Lots of action. I really enjoyed reading this book. I hope the author continues writing.
This could be a great story but it’s so freaking long. I’ve still got another 200 pages to go and quite frankly, I’m not sure if I will finish it. This is a very predictable tale and we know there is a happily ever after so why bother reading any further? The characters are okay. No one is overly appealing nor repugnant. It’s just a long, drawn-out tale told many different times in many different ways. Some much more engaging than this.
