OrangeReviewStarBrainy, bookish, bespectacled, and betrothed to a kindly but rather dimwitted earl, Lady Philippa Marbury knows all about anatomy and science but nothing about the physical side of marriage—and she only has 15 days to research it! What she needs is a research associate who's an expert on the subject, and from everything she's heard, tall, suave, wickedly charming Cross, a partner at her brother-in-law's gaming hell, the Fallen Angel, is the perfect person to ask. So she does—in one of the funniest and cleverest first-meeting scenes ever written.
VERDICT Dark dealings, tragic secrets, and old vendettas temper the social glitter and add a realistic touch to this offbeat story that is seductive, witty, and charming as sin and nicely continues MacLean's compelling series. MacLean (A Rogue by Any Other Name) lives in Brooklyn.
