Publisher's Summary

A rogue ruined...

He is the Killer Duke, accused of murdering Mara Lowe on the eve of her wedding. With no memory of that fateful night, Temple has reigned over the darkest of London's corners for twelve years, wealthy and powerful, but beyond redemption. Until one night, Mara resurfaces, offering the one thing he's dreamed of . . . absolution.

A lady returned . . .

Mara planned never to return to the world from which she'd run, but when her brother falls deep into debt at Temple's exclusive casino, she has no choice but to offer Temple a trade that ends in her returning to society and proving to the world what only she knows...that he is no killer.

A scandal revealed . . .

It's a fine trade, until Temple realizes that the lady and her past are more than they seem. It will take every bit of his strength to resist the pull of this mysterious, maddening woman who seems willing to risk everything for honor...and to keep from putting himself on the line for love.

Fabulous story

Can one truly let bygones be bygones? It wont be as easy for me but somehow the hero in this book can. So even though the heroin destroys his life and for 12 years he is shunned not only by his family but by aristocracy, he manages to let love conquer all. The hero also had to chase the heroin continuously to have her give in to the love. That is the only part of the book I wish Sarah MacLean had addressed. It is too unlikely so instead she should have had the chasing reversed. Regardless, I truly enjoyed the book and this minor issue correction would have just been the icing on the cake. But yes! I still recommend this book.

Great Series!

This is a great series! Loved it. Strong Heroine and Hero. Great story and plot, lots of witty dialogue, hot and steamy sex. All the ingredients for a great book. A must read or listen series. I read along on my kindle.
Read/Listen to them all:
A Rogue by any Other Name- The Rules of Scoundrels Book 1
One Good Earl Deserves Another- The Rules of Scoundrels Book 2
No Good Duke Goes Unpunished- The Rules of Scoundrels Book 3

I am so looking forward to Book 4!

The narration is decent enough.

Credit Worthy? Yes all of them are!

Great series! hope there is more...

Any additional comments?

Wonderful entertaining and unusual story. Temple is a duke born but hardened by life. Mara is a strong independent woman also made tough by life. They are enemies with a lot in common. By this third book you will know the supporting characters and they do not disappoint. This one will delight and surprise you! Rosalyn Landor is simply the best narrator out there. What a treat!

Very disappointing

The story was terribly slow and very hard to get through. Most of the book only had narration and very few characters interacting.
