Sarah MacLean - Bombshell
New ​York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with a blazingly sexy, unapologetically feminist new series, Hell’s Belles, beginning with a bold, bombshell of a heroine, able to dispose of a scoundrel—or seduce one—in a single night. After years of living as London’s brightest scandal, Lady Sesily Talbot has embraced the reputation and the freedom that comes with the title. No one looks twice when she lures a gentleman into the dark gardens beyond a Mayfair ballroom…and no one realizes those trysts are not what they seem. No one, that is, but Caleb Calhoun, who has spent years trying not to notice his best friend’s beautiful, brash, brilliant sister. If you ask him, he’s been a saint about it, considering the way she looks at him…and the way she talks to him…and the way she’d felt in his arms during their one ill-advised kiss. Except someone has to keep Sesily from tumbling into trouble during her dangerous late-night escapades, and maybe close proximity is exactly what Caleb needs to get this infuriating, outrageous woman out of his system. But now Caleb is the one in trouble, because he’s fast realizing that Sesily isn’t for forgetting…she’s forever. And forever isn’t something he can risk.

Vakmerő, lobbanékony és csak úgy vonzza a bajt; ő aztán tényleg nem egy affektáló angolkisasszony. Esze ágában sincs megfelelni a társadalmi elvárásoknak: ami a szívén, az a száján, és ráadásul figyelemre méltó pontossággal céloz, amikor behúz valakinek. Botrányos természete miatt kedvelt témája London fő pletykafészkeinek, és pontosan az a fajta nő, akit a jó hírnevét féltve őrző Simon Pearson, Leighton hercege a lehető legtávolabb szeretne tudni magától. A férfi jól rendezett életébe legkevésbé a botrány hiányzik. Gúnynevén a Hencegő herceg szinte csak azzal van elfoglalva, hogy rangjához méltón feddhetetlen maradjon és a titkai ne kerüljenek nyilvánosságra. Ám amikor egy késő este felfedezi a kocsijában rejtőzködő Julianát, akkor minden, számára kedves dolgot kockára téve megfogadja, hogy leckét ad jólneveltségből a zabolátlan szépségnek. Julianának azonban más tervei vannak: csak két hetet akar, hogy bebizonyítsa, még egy rendíthetetlen nyugalmú herceg is a mindent elsöprő szenvedély rabjává válhat.

Incapabil să își aducă aminte ceva legat de noaptea fatidică, Temple a renunțat la înalta societate și de mai bine de doisprezece ani domnește peste lumea rău-famată a Londrei, puternic și bogat, dar fără vreo șansă de a-și recupera statutul pierdut. Până într-o seară, când Mara îi apare în fața ochilor, vie și nevătămată, oferindu-i singurul lucru la care a visat în tot acest timp: iertarea păcatelor. Mara era hotărâtă să își păstreze anonimatul, însă, când fratele ei acumulează datorii serioase la cazinoul exclusivist al lui Temple, ea nu vede altă salvare decât să-i propună acestuia o învoială: să șteargă datoria fratelui ei, iar ea să se reîntoarcă în înalta societate pentru a demonstra tuturor că Temple nu este un ucigaș.

Sarah MacLean - No ​hay amor sin espinas
Temple ​es más conocido como el “duque asesino” desde que años atrás fuera señalado como el autor de la muerte de Mara Lowe, la joven dama que iba a convertirse en la esposa de su padre. Incapaz de recordar qué sucedió realmente, lleva doce años reinando en los más oscuros rincones de Londres, convencido de que no hay redención posible para él. Mara se juró a sí misma que jamás regresaría al mundo del que hace años huyó, pero cuando su hermano pierde toda su fortuna en “El Ángel Caído” la casa de juego con peor fama de la ciudad se verá obligada a intentar hacer un pacto con Temple, el hombre que no esperaba volver a ver y que resulta ser uno de los dueños del Casino. Temple cree haber hecho un buen trato hasta que se da cuenta de que la dama oculta más de lo parece y va a necesitar cada pizca de su fuerza de voluntad para resistir la atracción que siente por esa misteriosa y enloquecedora mujer, que parece dispuesta a arriesgarlo todo por honor…

Sarah MacLean - A ​Rogue By Any Other Name
What ​a scoundrel wants, a scoundrel gets . . . A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance—including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to such unexplored pleasures. Bourne may be a prince of London’s underworld, but he vows to keep Penelope untouched by its wickedness—a challenge indeed as the lady discovers her own desires, and her willingness to wager anything for them . . . even her heart.
