4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of angst and repressed feelings!, 14 Mar 2012
This review is from: A Rogue by Any Other Name (The Rules of Scoundrels Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
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.

This is my first Sarah Maclean novel. The hero was obsessed with revenging himself on the man who had taken everything of value from him during a moment of gambling foolishness when he'd been only 21 years of age. He would let nothing stand in the way of this goal, including his former childhood friend Penelope who lived on a neighbouring estate to his.

It was an enjoyable read even though I found I was more interested in the secondary characters, Chase and Cross who were the hero's partners in the gaming hell and even in the heroine's sisters and the gorgeous housekeeper. I guess they will be getting stories of their own. Or at least I hope so.

And I didn't real get the villain's purpose in all if this. Why would he do such a terrible thing to his ward and the son of his best friend? I didn't buy the explanation.
But I enjoyed this book and will look for other Sarah Maclean novels.
