I had a bad day on Friday not because it was Friday the 13th but because it was just a bad pain day, I have fibromyalgia and I was just feeling awful in general. So after hitting the gym which is a holistic way I am dealing with my Fibro I was still feeling the ick and when a girl feels down she goes shopping…for books! I picked up Five books One by Lisa Kleypas, one by Jennifer McQusion, Two by Sarah MacLean and one Maddie Taylor. For those keeping score at home that is Four historical romances and one erotica that is a little out of my comfort zone but looked interesting enough for $0.99 price tag.
Naturally I started with a Historical because it’s my go to genre. Sarah MacLean is a new to me author, she isn’t new to me in I’ve never heard of her, she’s new to me as in I’ve never read any of her books….. I know.. But! that has now changed I started of course with the Rogue not taken scandals and scoundrels book 1 and holy shit I did not want this book to end, EVER. The series revolves around The Talbot sisters or the Dangerous Daughters as they called for they each cause scandals are gossip column darlings. Sophie Talbot is the youngest of these sisters, Sophie is not like her sisters. she is considered plain and boring, that is until she catches her brother-in law the Duke of Haven with another woman. Sophie takes it upon herself to avenge her pregnant sister and promptly pushes the manwhore into a pond this causes a scandal like none the Talbots have faced before and so Sophie flees. While deciding how to get home she meets Marquess of Eversley otherwise known as King and from the moment his boot almost hit her on the head there were fireworks between them, hot feisty fireworks. The way they argued was just something short of lovely to be honest I have never enjoyed so much arguing in a book in my life. Sophie ends up hiding away on his carriage after he refuses to help her get home to Mayfair. and from there it’s nothing but arguing, kissing, more arguing, someone gets shot, more arguing, Handsome crazy doctor saves person life, arguing and being jealous, Hot sexy times in a carriage, more drama, Hot sexy times in a labyrinth. Oh and leather Breeches! our hero wears leathers breeches could there be anything better than the thought of a bad boy Marquess in leather pants?!
Over all The Rogue Not Taken: Scandal & Scoundrel, Book I was well worth the list price of $6.99 and well worth the read! It left me with not the Happy feeling you want at the end of a fantastic book but through out the book it had making good book sounds. I gave it 5 stars on goodreads and would have given it a 10 if I could have.
