Hello everyone,today i’m going to talk about A week to be wicked by Tessa Dare,the best sequel i read this year (in my oppinion) from the Spindle Cove series.
,,For all the girls who walk and read at the same time”
Minerva Highwood is a twenty-one year old bluestocking living in Spindle Cove who occupies her time with the study of rocks.Her mother is sure she will never get married but takes comfort in the ideea that Diana,her beautiful oldest daughter will find a great husband.Minerva,of course,has other things to worry about, and that is how will she manage to attend the Royal Geological Society of Scotland’s annual meeting in Edinburgh where she intends to present her discovery.She will receive 500 guineas if she wins,a fact that she is very sure of.
Here enters our hero.
Colin Sandhurst, Viscount Payne is stuck in Spindle Cove because he is broke and will only receive his inheritance on his next birthday.The other way to receive it is to marry and because of this, Minerva is afraid he will set his sights on her sister,Diana.So one night she goes to his house and offers him a deal:if he will escort her to Edinburgh she will give him the 500 guineas that she expects to receive for her presentation.
Favourite quotes from the book:
“Oh no. Oh God. I couldn’t possibly be so stupid.”
“Don’t limit yourself. You can be anything you wish.”
“This is ideal, you’ll see. We do everything backward. It’s just how we are. We began with an elopement. After that, we made love. Next, we’ll progress to courting. When we’re old and silver-haired, perhaps we’ll finally get around to flirtation. We’ll make fond eyes at each other over our mugs of gruel. We’ll be the envy of couples half our age.”
“Mr. Sand, do you think it’s possible to fall in love in the space of a single day?”
He smiled. “I wouldn’t know. I only fall in love at night. Never lasts beyond breakfast, though.”
Hope you have a wonderful day,
