Pippa has always been a little "odd", from her spectacles to her interest in science. Just days before her marriage to Lord Castelton, she decides she wants to learn the other side of what she can expect from a marriage, most importantly the marriage bed, so naturally she approaches it scientifically.  Pippa finds the perfect subject for her research,  Cross one of the owners of the gaming den, The Fallen Angel (and unbenounced to Pippa, an Earl).  Reluctantly Cross agrees to help her, but he may find teaching her about temptation, may be more temptation than he can handle himself...

This excerpt is from one of my favorite parts of the book. The chemistry between Pippa and Cross is apparent in every interaction, this one had me quickly flipping to the next page to see what was next!

"I don't understand. What is temptation, then?"
"Temptation…" He hesitated, and she found herself leaning forward, eager for this curious, unsettling lesson. "Temptation turns you. It makes you into something you never dreamed, it presses you to give up everything you ever loved, it calls you to sell your soul for one, fleeting moment." The words were low and dark and full of truth, and they hovered in silence for a long moment, an undeniable invitation. He was close, protecting her from toppling off the block, the heat of him wrapping around her despite the cold. "It makes you ache," he whispered, and she watched the curve of his lips in the darkness, "You'll make any promise, swear any oath. For one... perfect... unsoiled taste." 

ONE GOOD EARL DESERVES A LOVER (The Second Rule of Scoundrels) is 376 pages of wonderful historical romance, it has everything to make it a win/win, chemistry, heat, humor and a great plot. This book will be released  on January 29, 2013 and is available for pre-order on Amazon and for $6.99 for the eBook and $7.99 for the paperback.

I love Sarah MacLean's Rule of Scoundrel's series. One Good Earl is the second book in this series. We are "reintroduced" to Penelope and Bourne, who are the couple from the first book, A ROGUE BY ANY OTHER NAME (The First Book of Scoundrels).  Currently this eBook is available for $2.99 and in paperback for $7.99. (ALSO A FANTASTIC READ!!!)

Deck the Halls with Love- Lorraine Heath

Happy New Year!

I can't believe the holiday's are over and it is already 2013! Where did the time go? I had a much needed extended vacation and spent most of my downtime with my nose buried in my Kindle (in between chasing my almost two year old and four year old around at once). I read several great books and over the next few weeks I hope to get reviews posted for many of these awesome reads!

To start January off, I am going a little in reverse- I read an awesome novella by Lorraine Heath, Deck the Halls with Love and even though this novella is based around Christmas time it would be a great quick read anytime of the year!

In her first season Lady Merry fell in love with the Marquess of Chetwyn, but her heart was broken  when out of obligation he proposed to another.  Now it is the Christmas season, Lady Merry is engaged to another man, but Chetwyn is back after his previous engagement was broken. Chetwyn always loved Lady Merry, now he has to convince her to to choose him, because her love is the only Christmas present he wants to receive.

Fans of Lorraine Heath's Lost Lords of Pembrook series will enjoy being reunited with the Marquess of Chetwyn. This novella is full of emotion, the characters are well developed and you really find yourself hoping that Merry realizes how much Chetwyn loves her before it's too late!

This novella is available for Kindle and Nook for the bargain price of $1.99 and pre-order is available for the Mass Market Paperback to be released in January for $3.99.

Until next time...  Happy Reading!
