Sarah MacLean: Ten ways to be adored when landing a Lord ja The rogue not taken

Sarah MacLean kirjoittaa helppolukuisia viihderomaaneja, joissa sattuu ja tapahtuu, ja osa romaaneista muodostaa kirjasarjoja, joissa sattuu vielä enemmänkin. MacLean osaa kirjoittaa sujuvasti, mutta erityisen omaperäiseksi romaaneja ei voi luonnehtia, paitsi ehkä siltä osin että kirjoissa on paikoitellen maanläheistä huumoria.

Ten ways to be adored when landing a Lord (Avon, 2010; ISBN 978-0-06-185206-0)

Since being named on of London’s “Lords to Land” by a popular ladies’ magazine, Nicholas St. John has been relentlessly pursued by every matrimony-minded female in the ton. So when an opportunity to escape fashionable society presents itself, he eagerly jumps—only to land in the path of the most determined, damnably delicious woman he’s ever met!

The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father’s recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother’s birthright. The sinfully handsome, eminently eligible Lord Nicholas could be the very salvation she seeks.

The rogue not taken (Piatkus, 2015; ISBN 978-0-349-40972-6)

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.
