A Rogue By Any Other Name
Release Date: February 28, 2012
Rating: 5 stars
What a scoundrel wants, a scoundrel gets . . .
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.
Damn, can Sarah MacLean write. It’s like a guarantee that anytime she chooses to share one of her amazing stories with us, it will be great. A Rogue By Any Other Name was another addictingly awesome read that kept me up late into the night, unable to put it down.
I love how connected all of Sarah MacLean‘s books are. It makes them so much fun to read. We met Penelope in Eleven Scandals to Win a Duke’s Heart, and now she gets her own story. And what a lovely story hers was. I really loved Penelope as one of the two main characters. The story switches between Penelope and Bourne for who is telling the story.
Bourne was such a interesting character. I really wanted to not like him – he was such an ass – yet he was so attractive at the same time. I really loved Penelope’s sister, Pippa, she was such a riot. It great getting to know Penelope more beyond the perfect lady she was made out to be in Eleven Scandals to Win a Duke’s Heart.
The ending of A Rogue By Any Other Name was pretty much my favorite thing ever. The lead up was absolutely adorable, and the actual ending was just awesome.
A Rogue By Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean is an absolute must read. I could not put it down. I stayed up til 4 AM reading this one, knowing I had to get up early the next morning. Is it December yet? I need One Good Earl Deserves a Lover!
I went to one of Sarah MacLean’s signings two weeks ago, and I picked up an extra copy of A Rogue By Any Other Name so one person will get a signed copy. This one is going to be US only, as moneys a little tight and ends May 1.
