Sarah MacLean - A ​hódítás tíz szabálya
"Lord ​Nicholas maga az eszményi férfi! És a szemei, drága Olvasóink, a szemei! Olyan gyönyörű kékek!" - _Gyöngyök és pelerinek, 1823. június_ Amióta a népszerű női magazinban megjelent a hír, hogy Lord Nicholas St. John még a facér férfiak táborát gyarapítja, azóta folyamatosan üldözi őt az összes előkelő hajadon hölgy. Egy időre elutazik, hogy megszabaduljon tőlük, ám ekkor nagy igyekezetében éppen kinek az útjába keveredik? Egy önálló és határozott nő elé, aki ugyanakkor a leggyönyörűbb is, akit valaha látott. Lady Isabel Townsend egy léhűtő szerencsejátékos nemes lánya. Túl sok titkot őriz, a pénznek viszont valójában nagyon is híján van. Bár már hozzászokott ahhoz, hogy gondot viseljen magára, apja halála miatt ezúttal segítségre szorul: meg kell védenie a kisöccsét megillető jogokat. A jóképű és tájékozott Lord Nicholas megoldást jelenthetne minden problémájára. Ám a ladynek roppant elővigyázatosnak kell lennie, kerülnie kell minden meggondolatlanságot - például, hogy piszkosul, szenvedélyesen beleszeressen valakibe. "Vigyázat! Anyukáink ezt már nem romantikának hívnák!" - _USA Today_ "Sarah MacLean olvasását a csokievéshez hasonlítanám. Nagyon élvezetes és iszonyú gyorsan elfogy." - _Maria, amazon.com_

Sarah MacLean - Tizenegy ​botrány egy herceg meghódításához
„Lehet, ​hogy az írónő még újonc, de így sincs vetélytársa.” – _Chicago Tribune_ Egy botrány beláthatatlan következményekkel járhat… Juliana Fiori éltető eleme a szenvedély. 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.

Sarah MacLean - A ​csábítás kilenc szabálya
Mindenki ​ismeri a szabályt, hogy egy tisztességes fiatal lady nem lopózik be egy rossz hírű márki otthonába, szenvedélyes csókot követelve tőle. Ám Lady Calpurnia Hartwell minden szabályt megszeg, hogy meghódítsa ezt a nőcsábászt... Egy igazi lady nem szivarozik, a lovat nem férfi módra üli meg, nem foglalkozik vívással és nem is párbajozik. Ezenkívül nem lő pisztollyal és nem kártyázik férfiklubban. Lady Calpurnia Hartwell mindig betartotta ezeket a szabályokat, de végül is mi értelme volt ennek? Még mindig nincs férjnél, és enyhén szólva elégedetlen a helyzetével. De most megfogadta, hogy végre élvezni fogja az életet! De ahhoz például, hogy végigtáncoljon egy bált vagy szenvedélyesen csókolózzon, kellene egy megfelelő partner is. Egy olyan férfi, aki mindent tud a szabályszegésről. Például az elbűvölően vonzó Gabriel St. John Ralston márki, akinek épp olyan rossz a híre, mint amilyen bűnös a mosolya. Ha Lady Calpurnia nem vigyáz, akkor éppen a legfontosabb szabályt fogja megszegni: akik az élvezeteket keresik, azoknak soha nem szabad reménytelen szerelemre lobbanniuk... "Hiteles, életszagú, szerethető karakterek. Jó érzés olyan hősnőről olvasni, aki épp olyan tökéletlen, mint bármelyikünk." - _Jennifer_
