Enter to Win a complete print set of 

the Rules of Scoundrels Series by Sarah MacLean

 

I've been waiting on this forever! Celebrity Gossip in the 1800's?! Road Trip Romance! Enemies to Lovers!



Sophie ~ Oh how I love her! I cheered when she pushed her philandering brother in law into the pond! The ass deserved it! I booed as the ton turned their backs on her! I laughed when she took on livery to escape the garden party from hell! She can't stand the gossip-filled ton and is a big contrast to her gossip-loving sisters! [br]

King ~ From all the gossip I thought he was a rogue extreme! He is, but it's not as bad as you think, there is a purpose behind all those bedchamber fiasco's (He's actually a noble rogue) He's a jerk to Sophie even when he realizes that he likes her. He has a tragic past love life that effects his relationship with his father for 15 years! ( I love how that turns out, although it could have been solved a long time ago! [br]

  [space size=10]

Sophie and King have a push-pull relationship. They start as enemies as turn into a love of a lifetime! It does take a bit but isn't that the fun of it?! They have many adventures on their way to the country. Sophie being shot protecting a small boy on the mail coach being just one of them. [br]

The reconciliation of King's father comes at a time when it brings more conflict to Sophie and King's relationship. His father reveals long-held secrets and then of course Sophies family steps in and mucks it all up! [br]

I really couldn't find a liking to her family. The only one who interested me overmuch was the oldest sister. The one married to the philandering Duke of Haven. I really want that relationship to work out! Either that or the Duke to have a deathly accident! If anyone can make us like the Duke of Haven it would be the remarkable Sarah MacLean!

Synopsis


Lady Sophie’s Society Splash

When Sophie, the least interesting of the Talbot sisters, lands her philandering brother-in-law backside-first in a goldfish pond in front of all society, she becomes the target of very public aristocratic scorn. Her only choice is to flee London, vowing to start a new life far from the aristocracy. Unfortunately, the carriage in which she stows away isn’t saving her from ruin . . . it’s filled with it.

 

Rogue’s Reign of Ravishment!

Kingscote, “King,” the Marquess of Eversley, has never met a woman he couldn’t charm, resulting in a reputation far worse than the truth, a general sense that he’s more pretty face than proper gentleman, and an irate summons home to the Scottish border. When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the journey becomes anything but boring.

 

War? Or More?

He thinks she’s trying to trick him into marriage. She wouldn’t have him if he were the last man on earth. But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, making opposites altogether too attractive . . .

Excerpt


(Being shot on the Great North Road isn't exactly a thing people expect to happen, and Lady Sophie Talbot finds herself in the rooms above The Warbling Wren pub, under the welcome care of a rather mad doctor and the watchful eye of the rather infuriating (and infuriatingly handsome) Kingscote, Marquess of Eversley. There are worse things, she supposes. Or are there? Not for King.)

--

“If you want a bath, you’ll have to accept my help,” he said.

She pursed her lips at that, her gaze settling longingly on the steaming bath. “You mustn’t look.”

“I wouldn’t dream of it.” It might have been the most obvious lie he’d ever told.

Somehow, she believed it, nodding and throwing back the coverlet to step out of the bed. She came to her feet, the top of her head at his chin, and he resisted the urge to help her across the room. “How do you feel?” he asked, hearing the gravel in his words. He cleared his throat.

“As though I’ve been shot, I’d imagine.”

He raised a brow. “Clever. There's food when you’ve bathed." The words summoned a low growl from her, and her hands flew to her stomach. Her cheeks turned red, and he smiled. “I take it you are hungry.”

“It seems so,” she said.

“Food after the bath. And then sleep.”

She met his gaze. “You’re very domineering.”

“It’s a particular talent.”

“What with you being called King.”

“Name is destiny.”

She moved past him to the high copper bathtub. He resumed his place against the wall, arms crossed, watching her carefully as she reached down, her long fingers trailing in the hot water as she sighed her anticipation. The sound was like gunfire in the room—pure, unadulterated pleasure. It was delicious.

King stiffened. He was not interested in the lady’s pleasure.

If only someone would tell his body that.
