In the name of science

As someone whose eyesight leaves a lot to be desired, I always enjoy a heroine who wears glasses. The very scientific and bespectacled Lady Phillippa in Sarah MacLean’s One Good Earl Deserves a Lover embarks on a quest for knowledge a fortnight before her wedding. Instead of one of her four sisters, she seeks out a notorious rake in an equally notorious gaming hell. And instead of said rake rescuing her, she channels George Clooney to rescue him. Oh, yes, she learns a lot about anatomy along the way too.
