One Good Earl Deserves a Lover: Number 2 in series&hellip by Sarah MacLean
5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly addictive, 19 May 2013
This, the second episode in the Rules of Scoundrels series, is another masterpiece, that effortlessly carries on from A Rogue by any Other Name. The excitement is there, the beautiful contrast drawn between the formalities of London society and the temptation of its underworld, and the tension between our fallen angel (Cross) and his salvation (Lady Philippa Marbury, younger sister to the first heroine in this series, Penelope) is enthralling.

A Week to Be Wicked (Spindle Cove) by Tessa Dare
From start to finish, this is a fantastic romp of an adventure, with all the usual elements (overlooked but far from ordinary heroine, irresistible bad boy hero) ably complimented with a dash for Scotland (though not Gretna, for once), highwaymen, tall stories galore, and a good measure of emancipation.

If you feel in need of a rollercoaster ride of a romantic novel, this is the book for you. It's first class!

Unlike many other books of this type written by American authors, there were only a couple of glaring linguistic anomalies (that I noticed, anyway) and both the story and her writing style had me gripped!

Laugh-out-loud funny in places, gorgeously sensuous in others, I thoroughly enjoyed witnessing the lead characters' relationship develop, and found there were enough twists, turns and sub-plots to build up my expectations for the fittingly charming ending.

Pour yourself a glass of wine, settle back and lose yourself in Ms MacLean's brilliant book for a few hours. You'll… Read more
