MacLean seamlessly moves from the first novel in her Rules of Scoundrels series to the second. The same great chemistry, intelligence and sparkling humor shine, and the added sexual tension provided by lessons in temptation provides readers with a delectable read. Pure, unadulterated MacLean!

I don't know why I'm not enjoying her writing more. Both Temple and Mara were extremely interesting characters, and I admired this couple. But... I couldn't connect to them. All the good stuff was just touched up - the orphanage, Mara's mysterious medicinal skills, Temple's life beside the one in the ring.
Oh yes, they were mentioned, but don't expect any juicy details - there were none. There were also no descriptions of Mara's past, and how Temple ended up on the streets. Was there an investigation? Did his dad throw him out? What happened?
That's what made this book just nice and not great. The ending though... It really made me curious of Chase's story. I'm quite looking forward to the forth rule of scoundrels, peeps! Recommended with slight reservations.
I read the first one 'A rouge by any other name' and found that slow and wanting then read the second 'One good earl deserves a lover' hoping for better and I put that book down 4 times as I found it really hard to commit as it was unconvincing skipped most of the pages and I have never done that before!!!
Moving onto 'No good duke goes unpunished' was hoping for so much more and still nothing, found each scene repeating the last scenes words again and again! I came to the conclusion that there is no real detail of place or character and I mean in the sense of setting a scene or picture in your head it can feel rather 2D where you yourself are writing in the details and as an avid book reader all my life that is the one thing that never needs to happen when reading a good book!
I really don't want to give this book a negative review but I somehow feel cheated! It feels rushed, onto the next one which does happen when there is a series. I wish authors would take their time writing and produce great fiction rather then forgettable novels. I will purchase the final one in the series as I personally need a conclusion with all the time and money invested but as for any future novels from this author I am still on the fence about that?
I will let you be judge and read for yourself maybe I wanted something more surround then tunnel vision!
If you want everything of a novel read Lisa Kleypas no one does it better it almost feels like you've watched a visual of the story, SUPERB!!!
The best novel from this author Sarah Maclean has got to be 'ELEVEN SCANDALS TO START TO WIN A DUKES HEART' loved it so much read it more times than I can count and will read again and again! You fall in love with both characters and beautifully written, please Sarah more like that!!!!!!!!
Hotness Factor: I believe they said something about the body of Greek God...
I've always enjoyed the premises of historical romance novels. The women are always trying to escape a bad family situation, a possible bad nuptial or just want to be left to her own device (silly creatures, freedom is for men). The men... ah the men, former/ notorious rake, former/notorious "bandit", widower and the old favorite redemption seeker...
Miss Mara Lowe in the Book 3 Rule Of Scoundrels is pretty much all of the above but with a twist. She accidentally faked her death (very avant-guarde of her) to be left alone, away from a bad family situation and possible bad nuptial. but in the process she got a duke to be banished for a murder he didn't commit. I loved it! Faking your own death by mistake (smile)
12 years later, her past catches up with her and she had to reach out to the man rumored (they never found the body) to have killed her for help. Now you have my attention!
I really enjoyed Mara and Temple/William's relationship. He's angry which is very understandable and she is as sassy as a woman can be. Then you have a cute little piglet pet, the children in the orphanage and Temple's companions. It's a fun cast and you will laugh as it keeps you awake late at night... you just had to finish that chapter! I highly recommend, but beware... this is a long novel :)
Oh and... you want to stick around for the fourth book. I guessed the premise of this one.
