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.

light and entertaining

I bought this book primarily because of the narrator...Rosalyn Landor.What surprised me was the author,i found this a light read. Easy to follow. It was funny at times and the characters were great. I can't wait for the next book on Cross. I hope Landor will pick up from where she left of!

My first by this author

And I loved it. I love Audible sales because I can listen to authors I have not experienced before. This was a delightful book by one of my favorite narrators!

Predictable with a Twist

If you could sum up A Rogue by Any Other Name in three words, what would they be?

This is a really good book. I love this author and this narrator. The Rogue is redeemed and the lady gets her dream husband. It's predictable but the twist is worth the read/listen.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Rogue by Any Other Name?

The most memorable moment is when Penelope and Michael meet in the dark the first time after nine years but there were several other moments that are just as enjoyable. Though I can't recall each moment. I know this was a sweet and romantic story that made me laugh.

What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Landor is an excellent narrator. You always feel like you are there.

Disappointing Historical Romance

The story in this book was just average and a bit boring at times. Boune lost his family estate in a poker game, and he blamed everyone but himsel for acting a fool. Years later, Penelope's father won the estate from the man who took it from Bourne, and he made the estate part of Penelope's dowery to encourage a man to marry her (she was older and turning into a "spinster"). Bourne marries Penelope to get the estate back through marriage. Bourne and Penelope were childhood friends, but you would never know it, because Bourne was such a jerk to Penelope. While the story had passion, both Bourne and Penelope had unrealistic expectations and acted a bit immature. Unless you love this author, I'd pass. On the positive side, the narrator was great.

An Expected Outcome....

Any additional comments?

I love this author and wish that her "Love by Numbers" trilogy was available on audio. A Rogue by Any Other Name was a solid, well done historical romance, which delivered exactly what is expected: sighs and a lovely HEA. A good listen. Having said that, I think the epilogue was better than the rest of the book. I've pre-ordered the next book in the series and think (based on the epilogue alone) that it will be even better than Rogue. It's an automatic purchase if it comes out as an audiobook.

First in The First Rule of Scoundrels series

Not a story to tax your brain too much, but it was enjoyable despite moments when I wanted to give the hero a good kick for being idiotic. I'll be keen to see the next story in this series, but it looks like we have quite a wait as 'One Good Earl Deserves a Lover' isn't due to be published until early in 2013. As always, Rosalyn Landor is awesome narrating.

Awesome..

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

Yes!! Because it was such a touching and heart-warming love story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Michael. He was such a wonderful character.

What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

She did a wonderful job.

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

Yes..

Any additional comments?

This was my first book by Sarah MacLean but it will not be my last. I've already read the first chapter of her next book and it was just hysterical. I loved Michael and Penelope. Loved Cross, Chase and Temple. Loved conceited, self-centered Olivia and science-nerd Pippa. Loved Tommy and hated his father. Loved the romance, and the sex was perfect. Yeah, I guess I really loved this book.

Enjoyable Romance

I always love Rosalyn Landor's narrations. This book was a fun romance with plucky heroine and hero who thinks he's not worthy. The hero and heroine were childhood friends. He loses his fortune gambling, she's a spinster, he's bent on revenge, they marry so he can regain part of his inheritance, they have misunderstandings, get to know each other again, and they have a happily ever after. Enjoyable listen for commute.

Worth the credit.

Typical 'rogue type' book - come on - you know what you're getting with these type of books. Made better by the good narration of Rosalyn Landor.

A sappy ending

all was going alright until the last chapter where it gloriously claimed the supper sappy award. At times it was obvious the writer was a woman writing for the hero since everything coming out of his mouth was completely unrealistic. Regardless it was entertaining and light with some funny lines dispersed throughout.
