Goodreads Amazon BN Kobo. I wanted to love the heroine, and while I liked her, I struggled with this book for a few of the same reasons that the other 2-star reviewers did, but those who loved this book, loooved this book. And if the whole series is on sale, and you're curious, why not, right? I'm curious to know what you think. Lady Philippa Marbury is odd. The bespectacled, brilliant fourth daughter of the Marquess of Needham and Dolby cares more for books than balls, flora than fashion and science than the season.
Nearly engaged to Lord Castleton, Pippa wants to explore the scandalous parts of London she's never seen before marriage. And she knows just who to ask: the tall, charming, quick-witted bookkeeper of The Fallen Angel, London's most notorious and coveted gaming hell, known only as Cross. Like any good scientist, Pippa's done her research and Cross's reputation makes him perfect for her scheme. She wants science without emotion—the experience of ruination without the repercussions of ruination. And who better to provide her with the experience than this legendary man?
But when this odd, unexpected female propositions Cross, it's more than tempting. This is the third book in MacLean's The Rules of Scoundrels series and features a hero and heroine with some hefty past baggage i. Elyse reviewed it back in December and gave it an A- :. I loved this book because Mara and Temple were complicated, interesting characters without falling into stereotypes.
Temple is an alpha-male, but he displays his soft side in heart melting scenes.

Mara is the feisty, independent heroine without any foot-stamping or TSTL moments. It's scorching, but not explicit the way erotica is. The scenario is unique and the second chance theme is appealing, but the hero and heroine meet up too soon to set up their deal, making the rest of the book have less impact. Temple has his friends to stick up for him, from the first two books in the Rule of Scoundrel series, but despite all that has been done to him, it takes a while for him to become a truly likeable character. But perhaps that is the point, that he has come to believe he is no good after years of being ostracized.
EvilTwinJen gave it a B- as well, saying:. I've been binge-reading the Rule of Scoundrels series, and I've got to say first that she has the best book titles.

There is just one chink in her little world and that is the fact that she has fallen head over heels in love with non other than the Scandal Sheets owner and greatest journalist in London; Duncan West.

He raised a brow. She smiled. Not now. He swore, soft and furious, and swam backward, distancing himself from her. From the moment. I want you. I like Georgiana a lot, she is a complicated character she has so many layers that she has built up around her to protect her and as you start to strip those layers away you see a vulnerable and brilliant young woman hiding out of view. All Georgianna knows, is the game she has been playing for the past ten years. Duncan West is just as complicated as Georgiana, he too has scandalous secrets that could destroy him and the people he loves.
He is unpredictable with an explosive, yet caring personality that keeps you sticking around, waiting to see what he will do next.
He has his own layers that he keeps well wrapped up and this is what makes this couple very special. They are really two peas in a pod, they are both as secretive and manipulative and fragile as the other, but once together they show their true selves and when this happens it is very beautiful. The relationship between Georgiana and Duncan is fiery, volatile and sexually charged, they want each from the moment go, but yet as they are both hiding and lying about so much they try to keep away from each other.
He opened his eyes, his gaze landing on a pair of brown boots a foot away.
