By day, she is Lady Georgiana, sister to a duke, ruined before her first season in the worst kind of scandal. But the truth is far more shocking-in London’s darkest corners, she is Chase, the mysterious, unknown founder of the city’s most legendary gaming hell. For years, her double identity has gone undiscovered...until now.

Brilliant, driven, handsome-as-sin Duncan West is intrigued by the beautiful, ruined woman who is somehow connected to a world of darkness and sin. He knows she is more than she seems and he vows to uncover all of Georgiana’s secrets, laying bare her past, threatening her present, and risking all she holds dear...including her heart.

My Review:

Intro: Sarah MacLean is one of my absolute favorites and the Rules of Scoundrels series is a favorite of mine. Needless to say, I was looking forward to this book in a completely ridiculous fashion. It did not disappoint me even a little bit.


Heroine: Georgiana-She was just plain old awesome. She was so easy to like. She was one of the few heroines that I think avoid the Mary Sue trope while being genuinely awesome. She was strong and capable and was not afraid to be just a little bit vengeful.

Hero: Duncan-He was the perfect complement to Georgiana in that he was just as strong as she was. I also love that he didn’t mind the strength of his heroine. He did tend did tend to be a bit over-bearing at times towards Georgiana though. Not in a completely bad way.

Chemistry: This was a truly unique romance in that both the hero and heroine were equals. They were equally strong and equally heroic in their own right in this book. And I loved that so much. It’s not exactly a common thing to see in romances and it was so well done.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: This book was excellent. That’s it. I loved the characters, the plot and how well-plotted the story was. It’s very rare that I can read a book and not have any moment of boredom or distraction and I breezed right through this one. I love Sarah MacLean and this series. It will be one of the ones I go back and reread over and over.  

Overall Rating
