RITA award-winning author Sarah MacLean reveals the identity of The Fallen Angel's final scoundrel in the spectacular conclusion to her New York Times best-selling Rules of Scoundrels series.
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.

12 hours of vocal fry! Every single word is extremely gravelly for no reason, and a fake accent that sounds worse at the end of every sentence she drawls out!
A different narrator for a start.
I don't know what she thought she was reading or who she was reading to, but her sing song intonations and prissy voice really spoilt this much anticipated addition to the Rogues.
I couldn't finish this book though I did persevere because I realise it sometimes takes a while until one finds the rhythm of a narrator. But I was so put off by this narration that I gave up.
Rosalyn Landor. Justine Eyre would do well to have a listen to how well a story can be presented by listening to Rosalyn Landor. I thought perhaps she had taken her lead from Susan Duerden, she of the sing song prissy voice brigade that I find so off putting and have learnt to avoid.
I will have to purchase the ebook and read it because I have enjoyed the series so far.
I loved the previous 3 books. The story in this one would have probably been better if the narrator didn't WHINE out every other word!! She really made it difficult to get through. Was Rosalyn Landor unavailable? or were they just trying to save some money? Either way, they should have made the necessary concessions.
Justine Eyre is not a horrible narrator. I've listened to some of her other stuff. It's just... when she does an English accent, it's too extra/overdone, slow and annoyingly whiny.
Not sure who would enjoy it. The narrator did a poor job. The three books before had more adventure in them and the narrator, made each character come to life.
Yes she I a great author, it was all about the narrator in this book. Slow and no life to characters
She never made us feel like we were there. Couldn,t feel what was happening.
finally found out I was right about chase being a woman
We meet Chase.
The characters and the story. Sarah MacLean weaves a plot line with drama, some humor, and great dialogue. Female characters are strong and interesting. I want to read more about Caroline.
She is one of my favorite narrators. I think all good audiobooks bring the characters to life much differently than reading the book does. Justine Eyre does it all well.
Absolutely! And I almost did.
I didn't want this to end. I don't want the series to be over. I hope Sarah has a new series in the works.
The story is an excellent conclusion to a truly enjoyable series. But switching to this reader is almost criminal. What makes her so awful is that she reads like it is a penny dreadful full of purple prose and she is a vaudeville ham.
I love historical romances with an occasional foray into mystery/thrillers.
I've been looking forward to this book since we found out Chase's big secret, but was worried I had built up the book to where I would be disappointed. I was worrying for nothing. This book was a fantastic story from beginning to end. Georgiana and Duncan both must figure out how to reconcile their pasts and presents in order to have a future together. There were so many times I didn't see how a happily ending could be reached, but that made the ending all the more fulfilling. I enjoyed seeing Chase's partners and their wives make appearances in this book. I'm hoping Georgiana's daughter Caroline might get her own story at some point and also Duncan's sister Cynthia would make a good heroine.
This book would have gotten a five star overall from me had it not had a silly reason at the end for Chase to reveal himself. That was extremely disappointing. Other than that I really enjoyed the heroine's double life and her ruthlessness in a rough world against the aristocrats that shunned her and the respect she inspired by the same men. That in combination with her softer aristocratic side was a great mixture for this historical romance. The passionate scenes, as always with Sara McLean's books, were wonderful and very well put together and erotic without being classless.
The hero was unexpected as a newspaper man as well. Behaved as a man of noble breeding, highly regarded by everyone and someone of better ethics than the norm. To top that off he is handsome as sin. A very enjoyable and entertaining book. Well worth the credit.
I have loved all of Sarah Mclains scoundrel novels. a must read series for anyone who enjoys romantic historical fiction! Characters are clever and story lines well developed, narrator is excellent as well!
