Lady Philippa Marbury has done her duty and gotten engaged to a dull, but pleasant and dog-loving, earl when she decides to enlist the help of her brother-in-law’s disreputable business partner in gaining knowledge of the more, ahem, physical aspects of her marriage vows. Actually even more fun than the first in the series. ( )

I cannot get enough of Sarah MacLean and her Scoundrels! I enjoyed this book so much I'm tempted to go back and re-read it right now. Defintely worth the wait. Loved Pippa and Cross. Pippa's factoids throughout are fantastic and poor, tortured Cross...well, that just makes him a little yummier, in my opinion. ( )

I'm trying to decide if this was as good as the first one. I think it's just different. The premise is hilarious. Bluestocking sister engaged to the nice, dependable yawn of a man she's not in love with insists on knowing what to expect on her wedding night. So after thorough consideration, she picks a rake of the first order from her brother in law's gaming hall, breaks in and propositions him. Of course, his intellect is a great match for her and he can't help but be attracted to her brains and brash behavior. Then, after many hijinks and bad guys threatening bad things, they fall in love. The end. :)

Ok, not quite so simple. And as much as I just made fun of it, it was a tremendously entertaining read. I'm definitely getting the next book in the series. ( )

Book description
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 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... 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.
Haiku summary
