Publisher's Summary

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.

Humorous, Romantic, Delightful

I admit that I too fell in love with Lord Colin Payne and the story of his escapades with the bookish Minerva Highwood, who seems likely to become one of Spindle Cove's future spinsters. Minerva talks Lord Payne into escorting her in a fake elopement to Scotland, where she hopes to present her paper on fossils at the Geological Society in Edinburgh. Before he agrees, Colin sets several conditions on his participation, all of which Minerva knows are certain "ruin" her socially. But she is willing to sacrifice all to further her academic career. The journey becomes a comedy of errors of sorts where Colin's knack for storytelling creates unexpected surprises and brings Minerva out of her shell in astonishing ways. Minerva learns about his tragic past and brings Colin out of his "shell" as she comes to understand his secrets and what he needs to get beyond them. Lots of laughs as well as a sexy and touching romance.

Funny, sweet, sexy - sums up both Colin & the book

I generally don't like "road" books, but I'll make an exception for this one. Colin and Minerva are a delightful couple, and Colin is one of the funniest heroes since Lisa Kleypas's Leo in Married By Morning.

This variation on the rake-meets-bluestocking-spinster is hilarious, touching, and hot, and Carolyn Morris's narration is excellent.
