REDEEMING THE ROGUE
MacMeans’ voice is original and vibrant. Her fresh plots, irresistible characters and high wit not only put a smile on readers’ faces, but a glow in their hearts. The final volume in the Chambers trilogy is pure joy; funny, sexy and exciting.
Lady Arianne Chambers, sister of a duke, has been dubbed Cupid’s Mistress because of her knack for matchmaking. She just hasn’t been able to make a match for herself. She’s approached by Michael Rafferty, a government agent who mistakes her for a fellow spy. Though he’s disappointed, he has little use for hoity-toity English misses — until she’s appointed to transform him and the actress who is to pose as his wife into proper English diplomats sent to Washington, D.C. When the actress is exposed as an enemy spy Arianne poses as Rafferty’s wife, but the passion that flares between them is no masquerade. Lessons in behavior become lessons in love and intrigue as Arianne is caught in Rafferty’s hunt for a killer. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Aug., 380 pp., $7.99)
