She is the most powerful woman in Britain, 
A queen of the London Underworld ...
But no one can ever know.

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.

Reviews of MacLean's Previous Books:

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover (#2) -- TBQ


“I’ve always loved cross-dressing heroines – the trope is probably my most favorite of all the romance tropes, so when I wrote Chase, I wanted to play with the cross-dressing heroine idea. She doesn’t just dress in trousers – she’s also built a persona to match. She's a pre-Victorian Wizard of Oz, so to speak, thought to be a man, but one who has never been seen in public, and about whom very few people know the truth…namely, that he’s a she.”
                --Sarah MacLean

“Seeing a woman in pants has not been shocking for about a century.
But when one remembers the historical context of Regency England it is extraordinary. I hope this cover attracts readers who are looking for something different, because Sarah is blazing her own path in historical romance.“
--Carrie Feron, Executive Editor

“It was a fabulous challenge."
--Tom Egner, Avon Art Director

I so loved the second book in this series; book 1 was good, and book 3 was just okay for me. But I look forward to Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover. How about you?

My first time reading her was a YA historical she did years ago, which I liked. Then I read the first book in this series, which I also liked a lot. Book 2 was my favorite, hands down. I marked up my copy with SOOOO many great quotes and passages! But the last book was just 'ok' for me. I'm really curious to see what happens with the mysterious Chase!
