Wow! I am sorry, but this book is incredibly bad - the plot is glacial (what there is of it -- I quit reading at page 186 and had endured one night, breakfast, trying on dresses and then the heroine is at a ball). So, roughly 24 hours covered in 186 pages. The parents of the feisty lowlife won't be back from Scotland for at least a week and at this rate, the book would have to be over 800 excruciating pages long. I'll try to list why this book got a one-star rating from me:
1. The use of street cant and words I've never heard of (despite reading regencies for around 20 years). Words like "slavey" "cockchafer" "bubbies"
2. Marlowe, the female heroine, constantly referencing her "bubbies" (breasts) to every male in sight and numerous times. Just shut up already!!!
3. Despite being raised in the slums by a ring leader of pickpockets, she's still a virgin. Why can't she NOT be a virgin? Back to the same, typical trope of being "unspoiled" - it at least would have added some realism to a story lacking any at all
4. The illogic of someone hiring a bow street runner to find their missing daughter and then going to Scotland to hunt. Couldn't you either hire the runner after you come back from Scotland (it's been 15 years she's been gone) or not go hunting?
5. The illogic of the bow street runner dumping the feisty heroine with his brother as he pursues mysterious business that just can't wait. Why would one do that with one's mother and sister in the same house. Why would an earl even get involved with this slum person? Just delegate her cleaning/feeding/holding out to staff?
6. Marlowe's creamy skin (and probably good teeth) despite being raised in a slum for 15 years (from ages 5-20).

"Earls Just Want To Have Fun" is one of the best historical romances I have EVER read, and I've read tons. I was not familiar with the works of Shana Galen before this, but I am so happy to have discovered her. I first read "Viscount of Vice," because it was a novella and had good reviews. My current schedule doesn't leave much time for reading, but I had a little extra time for a quick read. Well, I read that book quickly enough, and was so enamored of Ms. Galen's writing, that I decided to buy the next book in the Convent Garden Cubs Series. This book was supposed to be something I would get to on a long weekend or when things slowed down, but I made the mistake of reading the beginning and couldn't stop for anything. I won't go into the plot....you can read the other reviews for that, but please believe me when I say that this author is incredibly talented and you will adore this book. I laughed out loud a number of times and I even cried. I was so shocked, and I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but this book actually made me cry. I can count on one hand, the number of times I was this heavily invested in the characters of a book. All I can say is WOW! You must read this book!

OMG this book was so much fun to read\listen to. I enjoyed every minute of it. It was so different than I expected and the narrator made it even better.

I laughed so many times during this book. It wasn't a regency romp type it was just so well written that the funny moments were just that, funny not silly.

I absolutely loved the heroine Marlowe. She was just great, beautiful, funny, witty, street smart since she was raised in St. Giles as a pickpocket. She was clever. But so very naive at certain things. And her slang was hilarious, like bubbies, and cockchafer. So many LOL moments with her.

I really enjoyed the hero, Dane as well. He was handsome, smart, witty and a touch picky. LOL which was funny. The chemistry between the to was great, it felt real and genuine and not forced at all. There are a couple of very very well written hot and steamy romantic sex scenes. Not erotica not BDSM.

The story line and plot was great. The entire story flowed so well and was so well written. I just loved it. There is so much fantastic dialogue throughout the entire book it really was hard to put down. I would have listened to this in one day if I could have. This was such a pleasant surprise.

As for the narration. I have to say that Beverly Crick did a very good job and made this book come to life with her narration of this story. It was perfect and possibly made the entire thing more enjoyable. The accent she used for Marlowe was just perfect!
I do wish she the hero's voice was a bit deeper but at least she tried and you could tell the differences. Her reading voice was very nice. Everyone had a distinct voice and she read with emotion including whispering, yelling, and singing. It was great!

I really enjoyed this book by one of my favorite authors. You will just love reading this because it's so downright funny at times. The story will entertain everyone who likes happy ever after. The characters are truly outstanding but not perfect in any way. When I first read the opening chapter, in which a young five year old was snatched while she played, I felt "why". Then you find out how this one girl became someone important in the lives of several people.
Marlowe who is a pickpocket in the gang of thieves who call themselves Covent Garden Club who live in the London slums. She dresses like a boy, swears a blue streak to anyone who gets in her way. The streets are mean, dirty and vicious to those who cannot survive. Her world is dangerous but one day she meets her fate.
Maxwell, Lord Dane is your usual Earl who lives a comfortable life who is single and has boring things that always stay the same.
His brother a hired investigator, has asked Dane to help in the acquisition of one young woman who suppose to be the missing daughter named Lady Elizabeth Lyndon. But the hellion his brother brings is not taking the situation lightly. She fights with all her strength to get away from them. Dane thinks his brother is crazy when her drops Marlowe in his lap to watch over. Who is this guttersnipe who smells to high heaven and sounds like the trash from lower orders.
Marlowe doesn't want to be taken away from her gang, but the handsome Lord Dane has other ideas. He talks her into staying with lots of food, a soft bed to sleep in but has one thing she must do. She must take a bath to her horror, but Dane is bigger and stronger and gets his way. As I said fate has a way of bringing two different souls together and that power is love. Marlowe and Dane just have to believe in it.
There is so much to this book, I can't give it all away. Just read it and you won't be disappointed.
