*Blurb Taken from Goodreads*
She is the most powerful woman in Britain,
A queen of the London Underworld …
But no one can ever know.
He is the only man smart enough to uncover the truth,
Putting all she has at risk . . .
Including her heart.
The fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean’s incredible Rule of Scoundrels/Fallen Angels series. These four dark heroes will steal the hearts of their heroines and the readers alike! This is the last in the Rules of Scoundrels series—Chase’s story
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.
I love SARAH MACLEAN and I’d recommend that you read the previous titles in The RULES OF SCOUNDRELS series before reading NEVER JUDGE A LADY BY HER COVER. With that said, yes the book can be read as a stand alone,I just feel that you will connect with the main characters a bit better if you read the whole series. I have to say the story itself is interesting, the characters are well written and engaging. I loved the idea of a woman masking herself as a man but not just any man a powerful man. I loved watching Lady Georgiana come to terms with her past and her present. And I loved Duncan. He’s a wonderful hero, one that will have you sighing. I have to say I’m sad to see the series end. Fans of Ms. MacLean will be thrilled with this new addiction. Those new to Ms. MacLean will soon find themselves devouring all her old titles. I’m eager to see what the future brings from Ms. MacLean. I recommend NEVER JUDGE A LADY BY HER COVER to fans of great historical romance.
