Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover

The Rules of Scoundrels #$

by Sarah MacLean

11 . 25 . 2014

From Goodreads:

She is the most powerful woman in Britain,
A queen of the London Underworld …
But no one can ever know.

He is the only man smart enough to uncover the truth,
Putting all she has at risk . . .
Including her heart.

The fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean’s incredible Rule of Scoundrels/Fallen Angels series. These four dark heroes will steal the hearts of their heroines and the readers alike! This is the last in the Rules of Scoundrels series—Chase’s story

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

 

Why I am waiting…

I have enjoyed this series from the beginning.  Maclean tells a funny, sexy, and dramatic tale.  I love it!

It was revealed that this character Chase is actually a woman, and not a man as you we led to believe.  I cannot say how much I love that the “scoundrel” roll has been given to a woman.  So many of these books paint the  women as innocent, but spirited enough to match the men they love.

I am really excited to finally have the roles reversed! I can’t wait for November!

The House of the Four Winds

Book One of One Dozen Daughters

by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory

08 . 05 . 14

From GoodReads.com

The rulers of tiny, impoverished Swansgaard have twelve daughters and one son. While the prince’s future is assured, his twelve sisters must find their own fortunes.

Disguising herself as Clarence, a sailor, Princess Clarice intends to work her way to the New World. When the crew rebels, Clarice/Clarence, an expert with rapier and dagger, sides with the handsome navigator, Dominick, and kills the cruel captain.

Dominick leads the now-outlawed crew in search of treasure in the secret pirate haven known as The House of Four Winds. They encounter the sorceress Shamal, who claims Dominick for her own—but Clarice has fallen hard for Dominick and won’t give him up without a fight.

Full of swashbuckling adventure, buoyant magic, and irrepressible charm, The House of the Four Winds is a lighthearted fantasy romp by a pair of bestselling writers.

 

Why I am waiting…

Honestly, I wasn’t waiting on this until about 10 minutes ago.  I had NO idea that this novel was coming out.  Mercedes Lackey is one of my favorite authors.  I love her Valdemar series the most, but all of her other series have been really awesome as well.  I am reading her newest book “Blood Red” right .  It is fanfantastic! The description for this new novel sounds incredible though..who doesn’t love a combination of princess, pirates, and swashbuckling.

I haven’t read anything by James Mallory yet, but I am looking forward to finding a new author!

If you like fantasy with a bit of romance, you need to read Mercesdes Lackey!
