Happy Friday Everyone!!!!!!
I am happy to end this week on a happy note and of course with a Historical Romance. "No Good Duke Goes Unpunished" by Sarah MacLean, is all about romance and vengeance. This book had me drawn in from the first page and kept me hook the entire way through.
Here is the summary taken straight from Goodreads.....
"A rogue ruined . . .
He is the Killer Duke, accused of murdering Mara Lowe on the eve of her wedding. With no memory of that fateful night, Temple has reigned over the darkest of London’s corners for twelve years, wealthy and powerful, but beyond redemption. Until one night, Mara resurfaces, offering the one thing he’s dreamed of . . . absolution.
A lady returned . . .
Mara planned never to return to the world from which she’d run, but when her brother falls deep into debt at Temple’s exclusive casino, she has no choice but to offer Temple a trade that ends in her returning to society and proving to the world what only she knows . . . that he is no killer.
A scandal revealed . . .
It’s a fine trade, until Temple realizes that the lady—and her past—are more than they seem. It will take every bit of his strength to resist the pull of this mysterious, maddening woman who seems willing to risk everything for honor . . . and to keep from putting himself on the line for love."
This wonderful story has it all: Fighting, Vengeance, Mystery, and of course Romance. Mara is a strong woman who can take care of herself, which I love when an author shows a woman doesn't need a man to take care of her. Temple believes he is a killer and has lost everything he ever wanted. When he discovers that the woman he was supposed to have killed is alive he comes up with a plan to get his life back. But things happen along the way and something changes between them. Can they over come the past or is the past too great to forget and forgive?
If you want a good historical romance, with a sexy male character and a strong female character then I highly recommend that you read this amazing book. I couldn't wait to read the next chapter to figure out why Mara ran in the first place and when you find out you won't blame her one bit.
Until Next Time!!!
Rating: 5/5 hot guys who could represent Temple......
