A Week to Be Wicked

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a devilish lord and a bluestocking set off on the road to ruin . . . time is not on their side.

Minerva Highwood, one of Spindle Cove's confirmed spinsters, needs to be in Scotland.

Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, a rake of the first order, needs to be . . . anywhere but Spindle Cove.

These unlikely partners have one week: to fake an elopement
to convince family and friends they're "in love"
to outrun armed robbers
to survive their worst nightmares
to travel four hundred miles without killing each other

All while sharing a very small carriage by day and an even smaller bed by night.

What they don't have time for is their growing attraction. Much less wild passion. And heaven forbid they spend precious hours baring their hearts and souls.

Suddenly one week seems like exactly enough time to find a world of trouble. And maybe . . . just maybe . . . everlasting love.

Review:

"Dare's delightful second Spindle Cove Regency (after 2011's A Night to Surrender) unites an unlikely pair as a wastrel viscount comes to the aid of a serious scientist. Minerva Highwood asks Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, to accompany her on a journey from spinster haven Spindle Cove to Edinburgh, where she plans on winning a prize for her presentation to the geological society. The journey will appear as an aborted elopement, but Minerva is willing to risk social stigma to achieve fame. She promises Colin her cash winnings, as the confirmed bachelor can't access his trust fund until he marries. Minerva and Colin's mishap-filled trip results in passion that neither expected. Colin reveals a much deeper character than his rakish exterior, and Minerva proves that her bluestocking shell hides a beautiful, shining soul. Lust, love, and witty repartee are perfectly balanced in this seamlessly plotted romance. Agent: Helen Breitwieser, Cornerstone Literary." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

Unexpected lovers find themselves together in Spindle Cove with A Week to be Wicked—the second book in Tessa Dares utterly delectable historical romance series. This Regency Era delight finds a restless British lord desperate to escape the quaint and too quiet small seaside resort hes trapped in…and he gets much more than he expected when he eagerly agrees to escort a beautiful, brilliant, socially awkward lady scientist to Scotland. Concerning Tessa Dare and her irresistible romances, bestselling author Julia Quinn is spot on when she says, “Prepare to fall in love!” And anyone who loves the novels of Lisa Kleypas, Christina Dodd, and Liz Carlyle is going to adore having A Week to be Wicked.
