Publisher's Summary

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.

Fallen Angels WOW!

What made the experience of listening to No Good Duke Goes Unpunished the most enjoyable?

I really like the hero and heroine. They're gorgeous, good and kind, sexy, attractive -- and so flawed and proud. This was an engaging story from start to finish with well drawn characters, a really interesting storyline, enough steamy sex to keep it interesting and integrated into the plot not just thrown in for the heck of it.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Temple for his physical attractiveness, kindness, and intelligence. The heroine, Mara, runs a close second. I also really liked Lavender, the piglet, -- a nice touch. I like that I don't feel frustrated with this author about either one or both of them being ninnies about their feelings for each other. Some romance authors take their H/H denial about their feelings too far, causing this reader a high level of frustration for having to deal with what at first seemed to be an attractive, intelligent adult into a seeming half-wit about their mutual attraction. This can result in either a low rating of the story or a return if I can't finish it.


What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rosalyn Landor is one the best female historical romance narrator to be found. I look for books she's narrated. Her accents are always so well done, and although there's not a big variation between her male and female characters, I never get confused about the gender. She is five stars for me every time.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I feel good getting in touch with the characters who make this book such an enjoyable story. The scene descriptions make one feel a part of the action. I absolutely fell for Temple. Wow, what a man.


Any additional comments?

This is the third equally entertaining listen in this three (so far) volume series I found the heroes, i.e., "fallen angels,' consistently hot, handsome, sexy, smart and extremely intriguing due to their flaws and strengths and the stories they're in. Pair them with an equally matched heroine, engaging secondary characters; a sense of time and place; and a plot you want to follow to the end through myriad changes and surprises and I'm hooked! I advise reading them in order, but it won't spoil the experience if you don't. I am anxiously awaiting the next volume. PLEASE say there will be another! . This is a credit worthy listen, of course!

First Thought when Finished: No Good Duke goes Unpunished sealed the deal for me: I need to read more Sarah MacLean!

Book Thoughts: Temple! Temple! Team Temple! If you can't tell I just loved the killer duke to death. He is everything that I expect from my rogueish historical leading men: dastardly, damaged, and a really good friend. I will admit that it took a bit for Mara to prove to me that she was worthy of Temple but boy did she! Her back story was heartbreaking but her gumption was outstanding. Together they made me smile!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Rosalyn Landor/ Length: 12 hrs and 34 mins


Rosalyn is probably one my favorite narrators! I just love her voice and it is perfectly suited for historicals. She just pulls off this series spectacularly well. I totally recommend these on audio!

Final Thoughts: Oh that epilogue *evil grin*
