I initially read Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake a couple of years ago and DID NOT finish it! Gasp!  I know, right?  Then last year, I picked up One Good Earl Deserves a Lover and I was hooked!  I immediately went back and read her backlist and I am so glad that I did.

 

Ridiculously Short Plot

 

Spinster Lady Calpurnia finally takes matters to her own hands and asks the Marquess of Ralston for assistance in completing her bucket list.  What happens is a steamy game where both h&H finally fall in love with each other.

Recommendations

I recommend reading the whole Love by Numbers series.  Sarah MacLean has become one of my one-click authors!

 

Other Thoughts

Despite it being a little bit predictable, I loved the freshness that the author added to make it unique.  There were no boring parts and for once, I did not skim the pages.
