A Perfect Equation is a great blend of romance, smart, strong women, and problems to solve!
Letty is our female love interest, and she’s such an interesting character. She’s so closed off from others, and she doesn’t “NEED” help from anyone. I enjoyed watching her evolve and grow. As she finds herself in charge of the Athena’s Retreat, a place for women scientists (and a secret), we get to see her grow and change.
And it’s not just Letty that’s watching over Athena’s Retreat…she’s got a partner to work with. Viscount Greycliff was asked to help Letty, and their chemistry is great. Starting as enemies-to-lovers, as they work together, they find an attraction they didn’t expect!
This is a great read for historical romance fans. It’s the second book in the series The Secret Scientists of London, but I thought it could absolutely be read as a stand-alone!
Where to Find This Book:
How do you solve the Perfect Equation? Add one sharp-tongued mathematician to an aloof, handsome nobleman. Divide by conflicting loyalties and multiply by a daring group of women hell-bent on conducting their scientific experiments. The solution is a romance that will break every rule.
Six years ago, Miss Letitia Fenley made a mistake, and she’s lived with the consequences ever since. Readying herself to compete for the prestigious Rosewood Prize for Mathematics, she is suddenly asked to take on another responsibility—managing Athena’s Retreat, a secret haven for England’s women scientists. Having spent the last six years on her own, Letty doesn’t want the offers of friendship from other club members and certainly doesn’t need any help from the insufferably attractive Lord Greycliff.
Lord William Hughes, the Viscount Greycliff cannot afford to make any mistakes. His lifelong dream of becoming the director of a powerful clandestine agency is within his grasp. Tasked with helping Letty safeguard Athena’s Retreat, Grey is positive that he can control the antics of the various scientists as well as manage the tiny mathematician—despite their historic animosity and simmering tension.
As Grey and Letty are forced to work together, their mutual dislike turns to admiration and eventually to something… magnetic. When faced with the possibility that Athena’s Retreat will close forever, they must make a choice. Will Grey turn down a chance to change history, or can Letty get to the root of the problem and prove that love is the ultimate answer?
