Caroline Woodley is an incorrigible bluestocking interested more in the scientific aspects of love then the romance of a Season. When her intended husband Harry fails to make her tingle, Caroline punches him in the nose and climbs a tree.

Geoffrey Rathburn is in a sticky situation. Because of his sister's sudden marriage, he must now come up with her dowry just when he could least afford it. Now he's in the same situation as he was five years ago - in need of an heiress.

This book was hilarious - and very sexy. The kisses and more darned near made ME tingle (though I didn't feel the need to take copious notes on the subject). Caroline is stubborn, brilliant and effervescent; Geoffrey, though stuck on his honor, is thoroughly lovable. These two are perfect for one another as everyone can see as the sparks (both of lust and of exasperation) fly.

I loved the secondary characters as well. Caroline's Aunt Win is wonderfully meddlesome, and I loved the reappearance of Stephen and Gillian and now definitely want to find the second book in the series to see how Geoffrey's sister and Major Wyclyff end up together.

This book definitely kept a smile on my face. ( )

Book description
Miss Caroline Woodley had climbed the tree to get away from Harry. Her friend Alvina had claimed a woman should tingle when she kissed her beloved, and since Caroline and Harry were destined to wed, it seemed only right that she try a little test. But it had gone terribly wrong. Instead of tingle-inducing, Harry's kiss had been...wet. And so she'd punched him. Then she'd climbed up the tree.

Geoffrey Rathburn had climbed the stairs to get away. It was true that he needed a match to get the family fortune back, but the dowagers and daughters downstairs were only after his title - just as he was after their money. Then a young woman climbed in off a tree branch wanting something entirely different. Of course, he was certain he could assist; he could make her tingle with a kiss - and do more with the rest of his body. The real question was if he could win her heart as she had his.
