A Week to Be Wicked

2, Spindle Cove

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Unexpected lovers find themselves together in Spindle Cove with A Week to be Wicked—the second book in Tessa Dare’s utterly delectable historical romance series. This Regency Era delight finds a restless British lord desperate to escape the quaint and too quiet small seaside resort he’s trapped in…and he gets much more than he expected when he eagerly agrees to escort a beautiful, brilliant, socially awkward lady scientist to Scotland. Concerning Tessa Dare and her irresistible romances, bestselling author Julia Quinn is spot on when she says, “Prepare to fall in love!” And anyone who loves the novels of Lisa Kleypas, Christina Dodd, and Liz Carlyle is going to adore having A Week to be Wicked.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 13, 2012 – Dare s delightful second Spindle Cove Regency (after 2011 s A Night to Surrender) unites an unlikely pair as a wastrel viscount comes to the aid of a serious scientist. Minerva Highwood asks Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, to accompany her on a journey from spinster haven Spindle Cove to Edinburgh, where she plans on winning a prize for her presentation to the geological society. The journey will appear as an aborted elopement, but Minerva is willing to risk social stigma to achieve fame. She promises Colin her cash winnings, as the confirmed bachelor can t access his trust fund until he marries. Minerva and Colin s mishap-filled trip results in passion that neither expected. Colin reveals a much deeper character than his rakish exterior, and Minerva proves that her bluestocking shell hides a beautiful, shining soul. Lust, love, and witty repartee are perfectly balanced in this seamlessly plotted romance.

Customer Reviews


This book was perfect! It made me laugh, cry and laugh some more.

Delightful characters, steamy story!!

This book was fantastic! I usually never write reviews, but I totally fell in love with Colin & Minerva - I just had to rave! I really felt this love story was more character driven & that these two fell in love because of who they were, as opposed to a vague, inexplicable, inescapable sexual attraction. Don't get me wrong - the scenes were crazy sexy!! Definitely a bit more explicit than the usual - but I like that :D But I just really loved that Colin & Minerva seemed like great friends. And what can I say? I'm a sucker for a dark-haired, bookish, bespectacled heroine - and the charming, funny rogue who comes to love her.

What a wonderful story!

Loved the hero and heroine. They were fabulous together. This was a wonderful love story.
