Cover Reveal: Never Judge a Lady By Her Cover by Sarah MacLean
“I’ve always loved cross-dressing heroines – the trope is probably my most favorite of all the romance tropes, so when I wrote Chase, I wanted to play with the cross-dressing heroine idea. She doesn’t just dress in trousers – she’s also built a persona to match. She's a pre-Victorian Wizard of Oz, so to speak, thought to be a man, but one who has never been seen in public, and about whom very few people know the truth…namely, that he’s a she.”
“Seeing a woman in pants has not been shocking for about a century.
But when one remembers the historical context of Regency England it is extraordinary. I hope this cover attracts readers who are looking for something different, because Sarah is blazing her own path in historical romance.“
--Carrie Feron, Executive Editor
“It was a fabulous challenge."
--Tom Egner, Avon Art Director

RITA Award winning author, Sarah MacLean, reveals the identity of The Fallen Angel’s final scoundrel in the spectacular conclusion to her New York Times bestselling Rules of Scoundrels series…
By day, she is Lady Georgiana, sister to a duke, ruined before her first season in the worst kind of scandal. But the truth is far more shocking-in London’s darkest corners, she is Chase, the mysterious, unknown founder of the city’s most legendary gaming hell. For years, her double identity has gone undiscovered...until now.
Brilliant, driven, handsome-as-sin Duncan West is intrigued by the beautiful, ruined woman who is somehow connected to a world of darkness and sin. He knows she is more than she seems and he vows to uncover all of Georgiana’s secrets, laying bare her past, threatening her present, and risking all she holds dear...including her heart.
Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, 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 before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book. Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, baby daughter, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels. She loves to hear from readers.

This is something new we (myself along with Born to Read Books ) are doing new this year. It's where we ask...wtf about something that's bothering us. Fun right! So here is what I want to talk about today. Does it seem to you that more and more New York published authors are moving towards self publishing? Are they doing this because they want to or is it because New York publishers don't want them anymore? I'd love to hear your thoughts about this so share them with us!
Relationships. Firefighter Rafe Donovan avoids them whenever possible. He loves dating women, but he makes sure they know upfront that he's in it for fun, great sex and nothing more. Fun. As an ER nurse and official caretaker of her disabled grandfather, Carmen Lewis doesn't have time for fun. But Rafe has been there for Carmen--and her grandfather--time and again, and he's clearly interested in her. She knows he's a player, but she's tempted by his charm and incredible body. And maybe a little fun isn't a bad thing, as long as she keeps her heart away from this fiery game she's enjoying with a very hot man. Love. It doesn't take Rafe long to realize that until now he's only been playing at romance. With Carmen, he feels searing passion and heart-tugging emotion for the first time. Now he has to convince Carmen that what they have together is the real deal. We are back with the Donovan's and I'm so happy. I really enjoy this family. I
