The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl

Written by Gina Lamm
Review by Elizabeth Caulfield Felt

When 21st-century gamer-girl Jamie Marten is sucked through an antique mirror into the 19th century and the Earl of Dunnington’s bedchamber, she thinks she must be dreaming. Micah, the earl, is stunningly handsome, and because of his trouble with past mistresses, he fights his attraction to the beautiful and crazy Jamie. Thanks to her cellphone and a game of Angry Birds, Jamie convinces Micah that she is from the future. Micah agrees to house and protect Jamie while she tries to get back to her own time, which won’t happen because Mrs. Knightsbridge, the earl’s friendly housekeeper and a witch, brought Jamie through the mirror. She has “seen” that Jamie is the only woman for Micah. A great deal of physical and mental grappling occurs between Jamie and Micah, the lovers sometimes logical, and sometimes not, in their decisions about one another. Not to worry, their sexual attraction (and love) for each other will certainly win out. The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl is a light romance with plenty of passion and conflict.
