Review: A Bride by Moonlight

Summary:
On the eve of her escape to the Continent, bold, beautiful Lisette Colburne accepts a proposal she dare not refuse: masquerade as the future bride of the steely-eyed Royden Napier and help him solve his most dangerous case. Soon Lisette is in even greater danger—of losing her heart to the one man with the power to destroy her . . .

 

Estranged from his aristocratic family, the enigmatic Napier has forged a reputation as Scotland Yard's most relentless police commissioner. He's vowed to bring Lisette to justice—but with every forbidden kiss and every tantalizing touch, he finds himself becoming less convinced of her guilt . . . and more certain he must have her. But when danger touches Lisette, can he save her?

“One Good Earl Deserves a Lover” is a Romance Novel News Recommended Reads. Check out our review.

 

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is dedicated “for girls who wear glasses” – perhaps because New York Times bestselling author Sarah Maclean uses this sublime new Regency romance to showcase a bespectacled heroine with a wealth of intellect. Lady Philippa Marbury cares more for books than balls, for science than the Season, for laboratories than love. She has a passion for roses, and loves nothing more than spending hours in her orangery, grafting stems together hoping to create a new hybrid bloom….that is, until she throws herself into a new experiment. Her brilliant mind is afire as she experiments with ways to convince Cross, the clever, controlling partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, to teach her some seductive new lessons about the birds and the bees….
