More About One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean
 
 
 
Overview

Lady Philippa Marbury is . . . odd

The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiance and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest--fourteen days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.

She needs . . . a Scoundrel

She needs Cross, the clever, controlled partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, with a carefully crafted reputation for wickedness. But reputations often hide the darkest secrets, and when the unconventional Pippa boldly propositions him, seeking science without emotion, she threatens all he works to protect. He is tempted to give Pippa precisely what she wants . . . but the scoundrel is more than he seems, and it will take every ounce of his willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.

Laughter and lust are delightfully intertwined in the sequel to A Rogue by Any Other Name. Pippa Marbury much prefers science to society, and with her wedding two weeks away, she decides to research wedding night activities. Not content to just read about sex, she wants direct experience, and naturally she turns to known rakehell Mr. Cross, one of the co-owners of London’s notorious casino, the Fallen Angel. Despite being quite a scoundrel, he refuses to provide Pippa with the knowledge she desires; every time he turns her down, she just becomes more determined. Pippa is a remarkable heroine: smart, funny, beautiful, and genuine. The interactions between Pippa and Cross recall the great screwball romances and are enormously entertaining. Steamy sex and witty banter make for a highly enjoyable Regency romance. Agent: Alyssa Eisner Henkin, Trident Media Group. (Feb.)
