REVIEW PREVIEW

Here's a snippet from Sarah MacLean's No Good Duke Goes Unpunished, which Senior Reviewer Kathe Robin gave a Top Pick! Check it out:

"There is a great deal of power emanating from the third Rules of Scoundrels novel. MacLean, like hero Temple, holds a tight rein on emotion and, when unleashed, it hits the reader like one of Temple’s punches. Two unforgettable characters slowly move from the pain and anger of the past, and the driving need for absolution, toward forgiveness and redemption. That progress is more meaningful and touching because of MacLean’s sensitive depiction of her characters’ hearts and souls. This is not just a marvelous deep-sigh romance, but a story in which the intensity and profound significance linger long after the tale is done. Well done!"
