2014 book 316

Sarah Maclean's Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake
There were SO many references to the Duke of Leighton and his love match in Maclean's Scoundrels series that I should have guessed it was going to be in one of her earlier books! I mean, it's not even the B-plot here--they're just meeting--but I'm excited to see that story play out. Anyway, the actual plot involves a wallflower/spinster who decides to finally live life or whatever, and asks the rakish Marquess she's had a crush on for a decade to make out with her. He does this in exchange for her chaperoning his recently-discovered sister around and introducing her to society. Also, he totally likes making out with her, so win-win. And somehow he's always around when she's accomplishing other items on her living-life list, which inevitably leads to more makeouts.  I liked all the sibling stuff here, especially the wallflower and her sister, but Maclean used the word "lave" about eight too many times for my particular tastes. That word is NOT sexy.  B/B+.
