Publisher's Summary

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.

    I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print

    Story
    "Not my normal Read - but love the Narrator"

    Rosalyn Landor did an excellent job as usual but she was let down by this novel.

    Bourne is a infantile jerk who abuses his past friend Penelope by forcing her to marry him just to get back the land he lost at cards 10 years earlier.

    He blames everyone but himself for loosing it and goes into part ownership of a gambling Hell, ruining anyone he can without remorse.

    When he learns "his" land is now own by another neighbour who has offered it as part of Penelope's dowry so he abducts and compromises her just to get the land back.

    By the end of the book we are to believe he has grown up, grown a conscience and now loves his wife and that she forgives his jerk ways and everyone lives happy ever after

    Sorry i know this is fiction but this novel does not need to be taken with a pinch of salt but a whole massive block of it

    I purchased this because i love listening to Rosalyn Landor narrations but even she cannot save this book

    I take it by the other reviews others appear to love this book . . . each to their own.

    "Better than Expected!"

    I loved this story! I really thought this would be another "bad boy gets tamed" but it was much more. The characters relationship has a sweet history that brings forth the fact they have actually been in love for years! Great love scenes and supporting characters. I am looking forward to the next novel and hope to see more Sarah MacLean on Audible!

    "Yawn"

    Not sure why this was so well reviewed. The narrator is fine but the characters are insipid. At least the grammar isn't terrible.

    Would you listen to A Rogue by Any Other Name again? Why?

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Bravo Penelope! For outsmarting the wicked man!!!!

    When Penelope beat the vilain in a game of 21 (ahahah)!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Penelope was left in the front room of a new house sitting alone on a trunk for her wedding night. That was crude!

    "Ruined by the narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I haven't read a lot of romance novels, but Sarah MacLean came highly recommended and I decided to stretch out of my comfort zone. I read the print version and really enjoyed the story and the characters. The book had steamy moments, but it wasn't over-the-top or raunchy. I also saw all the great reviews about Rosalyn Landor's performance and thought I'd give the audiobook version a shot. I didn't listen to the sample - BIG mistake. The various voices she uses are utterly ridiculous and painful to listen to. I couldn't finish the audiobook.

    "stick it through for the series"
    Any additional comments?

    The first of the series was a bit tedious, but I'm happy I stuck it out for the rest of the series. Each book improved, mainly because the characters became more interesting and developed. Decent historical romance albeit predictable, but then 98% of historical romances are utterly predictable. Fun series.

    "Roslyn Landor is a great talent"
    What made the experience of listening to A Rogue by Any Other Name the most enjoyable?

    Roslyn Landor uses her voice to give distinction and personality to each character. There is no screeching or grunting to the dialogue, the sign of a true professional. She is my favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Hopeless"
    What did you like best about A Rogue by Any Other Name? What did you like least?

    the concept of the story


    Would you recommend A Rogue by Any Other Name to your friends? Why or why not?

    no because it could not fulfill its promise


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the last scene.... oh how I wish the whole book could have been just as romantic


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no not as it is


    Any additional comments?

    Please believe the negative reviews on this one. I wish I did... I really wanted to like this author she came highly recommended but now being shot in the foot twice ( I read One Good Duke deserve a lover also.... ) I will not go back The writer has some skills but not enough to pull her stories together... she over writes the female characters in one hand and disables them in the other... I wonder do she like men... because in both book they fell extremely short... I love to see an empowered woman but she must be paired with an even stronger man. Skipped through this towards the end and eventually skipped to the end.
