Product description

What a scoundrel wants, a scoundrel gets. . . 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.A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to an unexplored world of pleasures.Bourne may be a prince of London's illicit underworld, but he vows to keep Penelope untouched by its wickedness--a challenge indeed as the lady discovers her own desires, and her willingness to wager anything for them . . . .even her heart.

Author information

SARAH MACLEAN grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born far too late for her own Season. Her love of all things historical helped her to earn degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book. Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels.

Customer reviews

By Maria Guajardo (GABY) 12 Mar 2012 5

It's official, Sarah MacLean is my favorite historical romance writer!

Penelope and Bourne were friends when they were young, but Bourne was cast from society, and Penelope eventually had to forget him. But by random chance, they found themselves together after she inherits one of his past proprieties, the one he's going to get even if he has to marry her.

I adored this book. Bourne was yummy and Penelope was fun. It's one of those books where you connect with the characters and understand their motives, and want them to be together forever. Bourne is stubborn and obsessed with revenge, but Penelope has suffered a broken engagement and still believes in love. Their connection was inevitable, and together they were on fire, but they had to overcome Bourne's revenge wish and Penelope's suspicious heart.

A Rogue by Any Other Name is definitely one of those books I'd love to re-read, and of course I'm waiting for the sequel 'One Good Earl Deserves a Lover'. I'm sure Penelope's sisters have a lot more to say, and maybe share their story with Bourne's best friends.
