Minerva Highwood could not let Lord Payne marry her sister. She knew they were not in love and she had to prevent her sister from harm. Minerva will convince Colin to runaway together to Scotland knowing that her reputation would be ruined. She did not think her feelings toward this vile man would change.
Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, had no idea how he got roped up in this scheme with Minerva but he was going through with it. He will find that Minerva was very tempting and not the shy girl who hid behind her spectacles. He knew that starting anything would ruin her but he could not resist her as they journeyed on to Scotland.
A Week to Be Wicked by Tessa Dare is the second book to the Spindle Cove series. I wanted to keep reading the series and wondering if I was going to change my opinion on Colin. In the first book I wasn’t too thrilled with his character. He was too selfish for my taste. I am happy to say that he was better in his own book which led me to enjoy the book.
The person who I loved in this book was Minerva. She was an oddity and it was fantastic. She wore spectacles, looked at rocks and did not care really for what society thought. She was also very protective of her sister Diana. She wanted to make sure that her sister did not go into a loveless marriage. It was comical as Minerva and Colin would banter throughout most of the journey and how hate for him quickly turned to lust and for her love.
Colin did grow up and had that carefree attitude. It was interesting to hear about his past and what happened to his parents. This of course explained about his lack of sleep and inability to sleep through the night. Spindle Cove continues with the third book A Lady By Midnight.
