A Week to Be Wicked by Tessa Dare - Romance>Historical Other
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.

Submitted By: ukblk on Jan 22, 2013An unusual historical (Regency) story where the heroine went after what she believed and had the sense of humour and determination to do it. Loved the hero, he was protective and caring (even when he didn't know how much he cared for her) A definite keeper!
Submitted By: marc on Jan 4, 2013This was one of my favorite books of 2012. I have already read it a couple of times. I love Minerva and Payne. Minerva is so book smart and yet socially awkward. This book started my auto buy obsession with Ms. Dare.
