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!

A Shiver of LightShirver of Light

A Meredith Gentry Novel

By Laurell K. Hamilton

06 . 03 . 14

 Usually, I would post a synopsis of this book that is about to come out.  However, since this was and is such an AMAZING series–I am not going to ruin it for anyone by posting about what will happen in this latest book.  I will put the synopsis from the first up though!

I started reading this series in 2012, after the Borders Bookstore that I worked in closed and I ended up buying carts and carts of books at 90% off.  I had been looking at this series for awhile, but hadn’t gotten to them.  I started the first book, A Kiss of Shadows and could NOT put the series down.  I had thought that it was over, until I stumbled across this one on Amazon last week.  I am so excited. I really enjoyed Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series (more so in the beginning before it she went over the top with the sex scenes) and this series is just as good, possibly better (and shorter).  While this series, like the Anita Blake series, is about the paranormal interacting with our modern day world, instead of vampires, werewolves, and zombies, the Meredith Gentry novels focus on Faerie and the fae.  The writing is quick and witty, the action is tense, and the romance is swoon worthy.  I can’t wait to read this book, and am probably going to re-read all the others to hold me over until A Shiver of Light is released.

A Kiss of Shadows

A Kiss of Shadows

Meredith Gentry Novel 1

By Laurell K. Hamilton

From the Back Cover: 

Enter a thrilling, sensual world as threatening as it is beautiful, replete with the consuming passions of immortal beings once worshiped as gods or demons.  Full of earthly pleasures and dazzling magic.  A Kiss of Shadows will hold you under its hypnotic spell.  

Meredith Gentry, princess of the high court of Faeries, is posing as a human in Los Angeles, working as a P.I. specializing in supernatural crime.  But now the queen’s assassin has been dispatched to fetch her back–whether she likes it or not.  Suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt’s plans.  The job that awaits her: enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful immortal men in the world.  The reward: the crown–and the opportunity to continue to live.  The penalty of failure: death.

Other titles in this series include: 

A Caress of Twilight

 

Seduced by Moonlight

If you enjoy books about Faerie, like Julia Kagawa’s series, and urban fantasy like Keri Arthur, Karen Chance, Kim Harrison, and Devon Monk, you will love these books.
