ONE GOOD EARL DESERVES A LOVER
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
MacLean seamlessly moves from the first novel in her Rules of Scoundrels series to the second. The same great chemistry, intelligence and sparkling humor shine, and the added sexual tension provided by lessons in temptation provides readers with a delectable read. Pure, unadulterated MacLean!
Right before brilliant, bespectacled Pippa Marbury settles into marriage with staid Lord Castleton, she realizes she has only days to experience life. Pragmatic Pippa approaches this as a scientist. She asks gambling den owner Cross to be her research associate in uncovering the nuances of the marriage bed. Cross is reluctant, but he discovers teaching Pippa about temptation is tempting in itself. As a brilliant mathematician he appreciates Pippa’s curiosity. He has finally met a woman who is his intellectual match; now he’s discovering she is his match in passion as well. (AVON, Feb., 380 pp., $7.99)
