Wallflower Eleanor Townsend is not like most women. She has no interest in marriage, the ton, or fashion. Instead, her heart lies with science. And when the opportunity to present a paper arises, she takes it, even though it means dressing as a man. But her disguise doesn’t quite work. Someone notices—and the brute intends to blackmail her!

Former prizefighter James MacGregor wants to be a gentleman, like the men he trains in his boxing saloon. His first step is gaining a beautiful, wealthy wife. Eleanor Townsend is not that woman, but a chance encounter gives him the leverage he needs. She’ll gain him entry to high society and help him with his atrocious manners, and in return, he won’t reveal her secret. It’s the perfect arrangement. At least until the sparks between them become more than just their personalities clashing. But there’s too much at stake for James to give in to his growing attraction.

Each book in the Townsends series is STANDALONE:
* Enchanting the Earl
* The Rogue's Conquest
* A Scot's Surrender
* Claiming the Highlander's Heart

I like it!

I liked James' stubborness, even when it was misplaced! It took him a really long time to stop being a stubborn a** and faced the fact that Eleanor is the perfect woman for him! But, as I said I liked him even when I wanted to bash him in the head with a blunt object! LOL...more

4.5 stars.

I am SUCH a sucker for a jaded, world-weary rogue falling for a timid wallflower. Even better when the wallflower has a decidedly not timid side. So The Rogue's Conquest put me on reading Cloud Nine.

If that theme is also your jam, here is a list of the delicious ingredients:

4.5 stars rounded up just because I finished this in almost one sitting, with a huge grin on my face the whole time.
