About A Rogue By Any Other Name: The First Rule of Scoundrels (Avon; 9780062068521; $7.99):MacLean’s work has been described as “Devilishly fun” (Booklist, starred review) and “genuinely touching” (New York Journal of Books). MacLean’s offers a fresh voice for historical romance. HarperCollins Publishers’ Vice President, Editorial Director Carrie Feron muses, “Every time I read a Sarah MacLeanbook, I remember why I love this genre. She offers a fresh approach–and a lot of humor–to each new book.” Now with A Rogue By Any Other Name MacLean leads readers into 19th-century England where the Marquess of Bourne has lost his fortune and reputation in one unlucky turn of the cards. Cast from proper society he disappears to rebuild his fortune as a cold prince of the underground gambling hell, The Fallen Angel. Wealth and power isn’t enough for Bourne, though; he is consumed with a desire for revenge. Almost a decade later, Lady Penelope Marbury is unmarried, and without prospects…until her father attaches land previously belonging to Bourne to her dowry hoping to attract suitors. Bourne knows this is his chance to reclaim what was once his, and take revenge on the man who ruined him long ago. He’s willing to do anything to win… including marry Penelope. But when she puts her heart on the line, will her gamble pay off?
About the Author: Sarah MacLean grew up obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born far too late for her own season. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University. While researching Regency-era gaming hells for authenticity MacLean came across a pasty faced, ham fisted smelly son of a fishmonger who rose from the gutter to run one of the most extravagant gaming house in London—William Crockford. Intrigued, MacLean “started to fall for the idea that a man who would never in a millions years find acceptance from the ton could actually hold a powerful sway over it.” William Crockford provided the bones for the four fallen heroes of the Rules of Scoundrels series, and Crockford’s became the basis for MacLean’s fictional casino, The Fallen Angel.
