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... and it will take everything he has to resist following his instincts -- and giving the lady precisely what she wants.

My favorite of the Rule of Scoundrels series by MacLean. I loved Lady Phillippa's scientific way of approaching life. And the interplay between her and Cross, one of the owners of a notorious casino, is priceless. A very fun diversion if you are a regency fan.

I enjoyed this quite a bit, as I have enjoyed all of Sarah MacLean's books that I read, though I don't think this one grabbed me quiiiite as much as some of her others, and I have to detract half a star for the fact that there was a loose end that I didn't think was fully tied up. Still, the world in this series continues to be very well-drawn, and I'm excited for the remaining two books. I'd recommend MacLean's books for fans of light, fun regencies with sassy heroines and witty banter. Bonus points for a clever title, too.

Not a particularly believable couple in that the chemistry felt very forced and saccharin. The plot was ridiculous (really, Pippa's beloved older sister is unable to talk to her about sex? Really? I have four older sisters and any one of them would have - to varying degrees - been more than willing to talk to me about sex. I doubt that much has changed in sisterly relationships) and the heroine is not very sympathetic.

The resolution of the story felt rushed and incomplete. Pippa's "jilted" fiancé storyline was tied up much too neatly. And what exactly happened to the Earl's sister?!
