Book Description

When a geeky girl hooks a haughty earl on Angry Birds, it's anything but a typical romance

An avid gamer, Jamie Marten loves to escape into online adventure. But when she falls through an antique mirror into a lavish bedchamber-200 years in the past!-she realizes she may have escaped a little too far.

Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, has just kicked one mistress out of his bed and isn't looking to fill it with another-least of all this sassy, nearly naked woman who claims to be from the future. Yet something about her is undeniably enticing...

Jamie and Micah are worlds apart. He's a peer of the realm. She can barely make rent. He's horse-drawn. She's Wi-Fi. But in the game of love, these two will risk everything to win.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute read! April 6, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
PJV Quickie: The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl was a quick, charming read. While a bit predictable at times, it was still fun to read along as the main character tries to acclimate herself to the 19th century.

Review

Jamie Marten is a professional songwriter who loves online gaming. Her friend is bribing her into helping clear out an antique storage unit by bribing her with Comic-Con tickets. While working, she accidentally uncovers a tall bureau, and as she admires it she rubs her hand across it...and her thumb goes into the mirror!! She can't pull her thumb out, and the mirror is pulling her further in - when she comes out on the other side she's in a luxurious bedroom, unable to get back through the mirror.

The bedroom belongs to Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington. Micah is shocked to find a scandalously-dressed woman in his bedroom and is ready to call the authorities. He is having a difficult time breaking it off with a particularly persistent paramour and doesn't need the headache of an overly-enthusiastic new one taking her place. After some discussion, he agrees to let Jamie stay until she can get things sorted out and on her way back home. Of course, Jamie has no clue how to do that...
______

I feel like every time I try to sit and write out my thoughts, the word "cute" keeps coming up. And it's true - The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl is just that - cute. The characters are fun and Jamie seems like a nice enough person whose heart has recently been broken. Her geekiness is kind of vague - she likes to play online video games and Fruit Ninjas - honestly, I was more interested in her career as a songwriter and I wish the author would have played that up a bit more in the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was disappointed March 20, 2013
By Maya
Format:Kindle Edition
I really wanted to like this book. But it was only ok.

The characters weren't developed enough nor was the story. Everything seemed very one dimensional.

Jamie spend most of the book monologizing. Micah/Mike had almost no POV.

When I read the excerpt about a geek girl going 200 in the past and meeting an Earl and falling in love, I was rooked. But as the book went on I started to get bored.

The ending was really disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars This didn't work for me September 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel just didn't work for me. The heroine was TSTL and the hero...well all he had going for him was good looks. They fell in love owing to nothing but the proximity of living in the same house. Jamie continually said and did ridiculously stupid things that did not endear this reader to her problem of living in a previous time. Micah's reaction to dangers to Jamie was to bully her and not believe her accounts of who was to blame. The dog, Baron, could have been a major player in the plot but he was relegated to being ever present and doing nothing. The plot often seemed very contrived. I cannot recommend this novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok read March 24, 2013
By Jones
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was one I'd consider brain fluff. I never got truly engaged with the characters because they just did not seem realistic to me. The female doesn't really seem to struggle to acclimate to the new time/customs, but I don't really think she tried. The supporting characters did not even question her strangeness. It just seemed like there were too many unrealistic encounters between characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Cute Time-Travel Romance March 7, 2013
By Misty
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love both regency and contemporary romances alike. Over the years I have read many outstanding time-travel romances and a few others that simply fell flat. The Geek Girl and Scandalous Earl lived up to my expectations. I found it to be a very well written and charming time-travel romance. It's a predictable romance but very cute in the way it was written. It's filled with plenty of sweet and sexy romance between the geek girl (Jamie) and the devilishly albeit grumpy Earl (Micah).

Jamie is a very modern girl who loves her music and video games. She lands in the 1800's after falling through an antique mirror. She's headstrong if you tell her not to do something; she is going to do it anyways. Micah has just split up from his current mistress and he's still suffering from the heart ache of losing his first love. Micah is drawn to Jamie after discovering her half dressed and in his bedroom, but truth be told he is set on finding a proper girl and getting his heir. His only concern for Jamie is to act as a protector, but as these two come together the sparks begin to fly.

Gina Lamm has managed to blend the regency and modern worlds together into a sweet and humorous book. She has included everything from a beautiful masked ball to Angry Birds into this well penned romance.

If you enjoy a funny, sexy sweet and thrilling romance then this is the book for you. It appears to be a start to the Geek Girl series as the book includes a blurb to Geek Girls Don't Date Dukes. Don't wait grab yourself a cup of tea and a copy of this book and dive right in. You won't regret it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cute Story That Just Didn't Work For Me October 22, 2013
By Melissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Normally I reserve my two star reviews for books that I really don't like. There is usually a terrible flaw that makes it one of my least favorite books. This one is different. This book falls into the category of cute books that just weren't for me. It is a cute book. I am sure that there will be readers who find it adorable and enjoyable. It just didn't work for me. I need to start my review by stating that because I don't want for my two stars to imply that this is a total mess of a book. It isn't. It is cute. It is fairly well-written, and to be honest, it was worth the 99 cents that I paid for it (I realize it costs more on amazon now. Hooray for sales!). It just wasn't the right time for me to read this. Maybe I would have bumped it up a star at another time. So ... I'll share the things that didn't work for me, but if you find the premise to be interesting and are in the mood for a bit of fluff, go ahead and check this one out. You might find something you'll enjoy.

This is the story of a modern girl, Jamie, who is deep into gaming but finds herself sucked into an antique bureau and into the world of 1816 England. She ends up in the home of an earl, Micah, who has been plagued with a bit of a scandal due to the unfortunate death of a woman he once loved. Needless to say, there are a lot of differences between the world of today and the world of England in 1816. Jamie is a fish out of water, so awkwardness ensues.

This is a love story that overcomes the differences of culture and time. It is an intriguing idea, one that has been perfectly captured in the Outlander series if you are looking for a great story with this theme. This is no Outlander, but to be fair, it wasn't meant to be. This was meant to be cute and sweet.

More About the Author

Becoming a magician proved to be less interesting than Gina Lamm had anticipated when she was six, so in her adult life, she's turned to writing.

This belly-dancing, wisecracking, marshmallow-addicted mother of three energetic fur-children loves nothing more than penning funny, emotional tales of love, lust, and entertaining mishaps.

A multi-published author, Gina also writes erotic romance under the pen name Regina Cole. THE GEEK GIRL AND THE SCANDALOUS EARL, GEEK GIRLS DON'T DATE DUKES, INDELIBLY INTIMATE, CAUGHT IN CRIMSON, and DEAR ADDI are only a few of her stories.

Married to a real live superhero, she and her family live in North Carolina, surrounded by tobacco farms, possums, and the occasional hurricane.
