A Week to Be Wicked (Spindle Cove Series #2) by Tessa Dare

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.

This was a great story...couldn't put it down. loved how Minerva was book smart but inexperienced in life...and Colin was wild and crazy. Total opposites. And they taught each other how to come out of their shells...the adventure to Scotland was fun to read and I couldn't wait to see what else they were going to get themselves into. The ending was a little predictable but that was ok. the love scenes were wonderful and even humorous which totally worked. Funny, Heartwarming, Sexy, & Adventurous - who could ask for more?!

The latest in the Spindle Cove series this novel is one of the best romances I read in a while. Minerva Highwood is determined that Lord Payne does not marry her sister. In an attempt to deter the apparently pending proposal, she proposes they travel to Scotland to present her latest geological findings to the scientific community so that Payne can keep the prize money. They seem like an unlikely match, Payne a handsome womanizer, Minerva a bespectacled bluestocking with a love of rocks. Yet in the author’s hands it is believable that opposites attract. The dialogue is great and even better is Minerva’s character. You’ve got to love a heroine who embroiders extinct sea creatures onto her wedding trousseau.

This story of Minerva ( A SELF PROCLAIMED GEOLOGIST ) and Lord Colin Payne ( Rake) was inspiring. Two very different people set out ona trip and find all sorts of adventure to get into. But along the way they discover they both can bring out the better qualities in each other and loved each other flaws also. I loved this book along with the other Spindle Cove books by Tessa Dare.

Bookish, awkward Minerva and carefree Colin both have their insecurities and I loved reading about their struggles to overcome these insecurities on their own and as a couple. I also liked that the author allowed them to have a little time to get to know one another before their eventual, eventful journey. Tessa Dare throws in some snappy, really funny dialogue and situations, but she truly shines when they finally declare their love for one another. Colin's declaration is wonderful, lovely and romantic, in the best sense of the word. Loved this book!

I’m fastly becoming a fan of Tessa Dare, I dare say. This is my first book of the Spindle Cove series (I didn’t start the series in sequence) and it was fantastic. It was well-paced and the characters are well developed and likeable. And they’re funny! I love Ms. Dare’s sense of humor and wit and it really comes thru in this book. The relationship and how it develops is realistic and believable, although there are some moments of suspended belief it’s certainly not as much as in most books. I did hope for a slightly different ending for our heroine but I can appreciate that Ms. Dare was working within the confines of... reality. A good fun read that keeps you engaged page after page. I really enjoyed her Castles series (especially book 3 about Logan and Madeline) and didn’t think I’d find something as witty and fun and I’m glad I was proven wrong with this book. It makes me curios about the rest of the Spindle Cove ladies.
