Lady Philippa Marbury is...odd.
The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest - 14 days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.
She needs...a Scoundrel.
She needs Cross, the clever, controlled partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, with a carefully crafted reputation for wickedness. But reputations often hide the darkest secrets, and when the unconventional Pippa boldly propositions him, seeking science without emotion, she threatens all he works to protect. He is tempted to give Pippa precisely what she wants...but the scoundrel is more than he seems, and it will take every ounce of his willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.

Yes, I am looking forward to the next book in this series and Rosalyn Landor is my favorite narrator.
This book was just not as good as the first book in the series. I think Ms. MacLean is a good writer and story teller, I just don't think she thought this book through before putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard).
Rosalyn Landor brings the characters to life. I feel like I know the characters personally every time I listen to a book narrated by Ms. Landor.
Considering that this book is the second book in a series, it's missing the key key characters from the first book, Penelope and Borne. Also, considering that Penelope is Pippa's sister and Borne is a co-owner of The Angel, you would really think that they would have role in this book. However, Penelope has ONE conversation with Pippa and Borne is only mentioned. How can the author expect this story to go over well when Penelope and Borne have no interactions with Pippa and Cross? It just doesn't make sense.
I anxiously waited on this book for 6 months or more because I loved the first book so much and I'm so disappointed with this book. There were so many conversations between Pippa and Cross with him imagining what he would like to do with her and it just got old after a while. I believe that Pippa and Cross deserved a better story and Penelope and Borne should have had a role in this story.
Regardless, I plan on listening to this book again in a few months and maybe I will like it better.
