50 posts | 85 read | 28 to read
Lady Philippa Marbury is . . . oddThe 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 fianc and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the restfourteen 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 ScoundrelShe 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.

I really loved the first book in this series and was looking forward to this second book. The heroine, Pippa, is wonderful and brainy but the hero was into hating himself a little too much. I'm gonna finish the series because I know the 4th book is gonna be interesting!

With this new-to-me series, Sarah MacLean has entered the ranks of Instabuy Author for me!

Pippa is refreshingly direct, clever, and heroic. And her long limbed “research partner”, Cross, is a remarkably honorable scoundrel with many delicious shocks in his future! A wonderful mixture of scientific curiosity and passion, their romance is bound to defy the strictures of their circumstances and set the “haute ton” abuzz with the scandal of it all!

I did! I hit 200! And with a little bit of time to spare! What an amazing reading year it‘s been! And, I never would‘ve read so much this year without you Littens! Without reading challenges like #LitsyAtoZ and #24in48 I never would‘ve gotten so much momentum! And I‘ve had a much wider reading experience thanks to all of the amazing posts from all you amazing Littens throughout the year! Thanks guys!

Review of my 200th book in 2017 to follow!

I would have read more of this book while standing in line at the post office, but there was a nice chatty lady behind me, so we commiserated about the long line and other indignities of life. Now that I'm home and planted on the couch, I expect to make some progress. (I'm enjoying the other books too, but they're more of the savor-slowly variety.) #currentlyreading #WEEKENDGIVEAWAY

This was great fun. I think Lady Phillipa Marbury has to be one of my favorite characters. As much as I find neatly tied endings not my cuppa', the plot was fun to read and smartly done.

This is my 3rd Maclean (this month) and I think has my favorite characters so far. Pippa is such a fun heroine and I love that she's so smart and "odd." I only own one more book by Sarah Maclean and can't really spend the money right now, so I'm going to take a short break from her for now.

I adore this book. This was my 2nd Sarah MacLean novel- and not my last. I've actually finished this fab series and am reading her earlier series. Omg where to start Pippa- Pippa is hilarious, inquisitive, intelligent and just the best. She puts Cross through his paces, without even knowing she is. I love historical rom where strong female lead had her own pursuits&goal (horticulture for Pippa) and this book delivers. Fun, smart and just awesome!

I had never read romance before, but Book Riot talked so much about how fun and smart and feminist Sarah MacLean books were, so I decided to give them a try at a time when life was really hard, and sure enough, it got me through a lot. ❤ Don't be ashamed to find joy in reading.

My quest to read a single romance novel in honor of Valentine's Day has blossomed out of control, and I find my passion for the genre growing day by day. This one has a geeky, socially inept (so inept that one wonders if she falls somewhere on the autism spectrum) society lady falling in love with a chaste scoundrel. 😍😂😍

I didn't like this much the first time I read it. A case of wrong book at the wrong time, perhaps? Anyway, I gave it a second chance a year later and I really liked it. It's my favorite in this series by Sarah MacLean. It might be because in spite of her glasses and nerdy obsessions she gets the hot, wicked bad boy earl. And I wear glasses, have nerdy obsessions, and dig hot bad boys. 😬 #changedyourmindabout #feistyfeb #SecondChances #booklove17

This is a reread for me. First time I read it on my kindle, this time listened to it in #audiobook the narrator is one of my favourites and did a fantastic job. Still loved the story. ❤🎧📚 #OSRBC #romansty

My original review can be found at: paragraphsandpetticoats.blogspot.ca

ParagraphsandPetticoats @steamy55 - this book has the MOST crazy anticipation I have EVER read!! However it's part of a series... which both the series prior to this and this series are good..(both are linked) but not sure how you feel about reading books out of order. 2y

Got to a 2:00 seminar at 1:30, so decided to pick up where I left off on the audio of this because I have the e-book on my phone. After a particularly, er, romantic chapter, I really hope no one here was sneaking peeks over my shoulder... (This is a fun romp so far. A little predictable, but gloriously unique in its approach to the genre.)

I stayed up way too late to finish this, but I couldn't put it down. Love the characters and Sarah MacLean does steamy scenes with class. This one was a little tamer than the first in the series, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

I'm brand new to the romance genre, and along comes a protagonist who's a science geek & doesn't understand romance at all, speaking straight to my heart. Thanks @bookriot for alerting me to this hole in my life.

Pippa and Cross are quite possibly one of my most favorite couples...as well as my most favorite characters. Their story was intriguing and addictive from beginning to end, and Sarah MacLean will lock up your reader's heart with this one, if she somehow managed to escape doing so with her other books previously. You cannot go wrong with this author! #OSRBC #romantsy

Nine Rules to Break & A Rogue By Any Other Name were my first Sarah MacLeans, such a one-two punch of awesomeness.....and I found this one just didn't sweep me away like the others. The whole, "you're better off without me, I'm no good, I'll ruin you" thing just went on and on for way too long. This hero had things in his past that certainly made it understandable...I just wanted the cute, nerdy heroine to have more sexy fun. Haha.

Dopo aver letto questo libro ho capito due cose. La prima è che non amo i libri rosa, semplicemente non fanno per me. La seconda è che è un genere ingiustamente ridicolizzato, e molto più intelligente e auto consapevole di quanto sembri

Repetition was unnecessary. Lady Philippa Marbury's request was fairly burned into his memory. Nevertheless, she lifted one hand, pushed her spectacles back on her nose and took a deep breath. "I require ruination."
