Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Chapter One September 1837 Mayfair In twenty-eight years and three hundred sixty-four days, Lady Henrietta Sedley liked to think that she’d learned a few things. She’d learned, for example, that if a lady could not get away with wearing trousers (an unfortunate reality for the daughter of an earl, even one who had begun life without title or fortune), then she should absolutely ensure that her skirts included pockets. A woman never knew when she might require a bit of rope, or a knife to cut it, after all. She’d also learned that any decent escape from her Mayfair home […]

Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean | Re-read Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS TIMES READ This is my second read, first via audiobook. WHEN I FIRST READ I read this book last year on my vacay and I liked it.  A little bit underwhelmed by Chase’s story, though. ORIGINAL REVIEW Reviewed it on my blog here. WHAT I REMEMBER Chase is a FEMALE!  Well, that is not a secret anymore but I really loved the surprise of having the head of the club as female. WHY I WANTED TO RE-READ I wanted to see if I would feel differently about Chase/Georgina’s story if I listened to it via audiobook. HOW I FELT AFTER […]

Nine Rules to Break when Romancing A Rake by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

My Thoughts I initially read Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake a couple of years ago and DID NOT finish it!

The story takes place 10 years later when Callie, wanting to be free and taking a page from her brother, creates a bucket list.  Naturally, she immediately visits Gabriel in his townhouse in the middle of the night to ask for […]

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

  The third book in the Rules of Scoundrels series, is about Temple (the boxer and enforcer of The Angel) and Mara, the girl who was believed to be dead AND the reason why Temple was banished from society.

[…]
