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 fiancé 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 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.

Not Sarah MacLean's best effort. The early chapters setting up the storyline feel like filler & are complicated by the fact that everybody has 2 or 3 names. The storyline is implausible, even for an historical romance, the hero is a stick, & the conversations are wooden. Don't waste your time.

My favorite of the Rule of Scoundrels series by MacLean. I loved Lady Phillippa's scientific way of approaching life. And the interplay between her and Cross, one of the owners of a notorious casino, is priceless. A very fun diversion if you are a regency fan.

Not a particularly believable couple in that the chemistry felt very forced and saccharin. The plot was ridiculous (really, Pippa's beloved older sister is unable to talk to her about sex? Really? I have four older sisters and any one of them would have - to varying degrees - been more than willing to talk to me about sex. I doubt that much has changed in sisterly relationships) and the heroine is not very sympathetic.

The resolution of the story felt rushed and incomplete. Pippa's "jilted" fiancé storyline was tied up much too neatly. And what exactly happened to the Earl's sister?!
