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
• convince family and friends they’re in “love”
• outrun armed robbers
• survive their worst nightmares
• 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…love.
SWOON…AND SWOON AGAIN.
I actually read this for the first time some time last year, but a few days ago I found myself annoyed that I hadn’t read anything in… a while. I ended up browsing through my Kindle, came upon this, and remembered how much I loved it. I decided I would read through parts of it, but then I couldn’t stop…and I read the whole thing again. Guys, this book is the definition of DELIGHTFUL.
Colin and Minerva’s relationship easily had a spark from the very beginning, but being that they’re polar opposites, there were more than a few times they disagreed. Thankfully for me, this meant a lot of bickering and bantering, as well as a palpable growing attraction between them. Their adventures on the road had me laughing as Colin created hilarious backstories for them, some of which definitely backfired on them. I loved as they slowly grew comfortable with each other, building a strong foundation of trust.
Romances always come with some steamy scenes, and I must admit that sometimes I quickly skim through them, because I prefer witty banter over them. However, here…WHOA, TESSA DARE. Way to make me blush!!
Fun banter and great steamy scenes aside, what I loved most about A Week to Be Wicked was how Tessa Dare created such a solid, healthy relationship. I’ve encountered so.much.angst in my historical romance reads, so it was so refreshing to have this be relatively free of complications and drama. Colin and Minerva fit together perfectly and Tessa Dare set the bar very high for all other romances with with this book.
hilarious, sweet, and steamy. insert exclamation points here because GUH, SO GOOD.
