Title: "A Rogue By Any Other Name" Series: The Rules of Scoundrels Book #1
Author: Sarah MacLean Publisher: Avon Publication Date: 2/28/12
A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance—including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury.
A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to such unexplored pleasures.
Bourne may be a prince of London’s underworld, but he vows to keep Penelope untouched by its wickedness—a challenge indeed as the lady discovers her own desires, and her willingness to wager anything for them... even her heart.
My Overall Feeling of the Book:
I love books that have childhood friends re-uniting and rediscovering each other. In this case, Michael, was a completely different person which was very sad but it made reading about his transformation even sweeter. This is the first book in a very long time that intrigued me enough to read in one "sitting". I started it in the early evening and finished before bed. To me that is a great indicator of a great read!
A Brief Excerpt:
The eight of diamonds ruined him. If it had been the six, he might have saved himself. If it had been the seven, he would have walked away with triple his holdings. But it was the eight.
The cover is very pretty. I love the overall color. But who walks around with that much cleavage showing?
~This is a mainstream romance with adult situations.
