(from our review) Sex and the Single Earl features a heroine who has had a crush on the hero since forever but is not about to let him ride roughshod all over her because of it. The single earl, hero and beneficiary of all Sophie Stanton’s unrequited love, is Simon St James, Earl of Trask. He wants to get married to Sophie because she’ll bring land that he needs to increase his holdings in Britain’s wool industry. He and Sophie have known each other for a very long time and he has acted in the role of older brother for most of it. He’s not immune to her physical charms, which makes his plan to marry her more palatable. But Simon looks at the marriage as the means to an end. So the set-up is a smitten-but-fighting-it heroine and an about-to-have-a-rude-awakening hero. I’m partial to these type of stories and I enjoyed this one - but only up to a certain point.
