Review: No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean


About the book:

A rogue ruined . . .

He is the Killer Duke, accused of murdering Mara Lowe on the eve of her wedding. With no memory of that fateful night, Temple has reigned over the darkest of London’s corners for twelve years, wealthy and powerful, but beyond redemption. Until one night, Mara resurfaces, offering the one thing he’s dreamed of . . . absolution.

A lady returned . . .

Mara planned never to return to the world from which she’d run, but when her brother falls deep into debt at Temple’s exclusive casino, she has no choice but to offer Temple a trade that ends in her returning to society and proving to the world what only she knows…that he is no killer.

A scandal revealed . . .

It’s a fine trade, until Temple realizes that the lady—and her past—are more than they seem. It will take every bit of his strength to resist the pull of this mysterious, maddening woman who seems willing to risk everything for honor . . . and to keep from putting himself on the line for love.

Oh, Temple, Temple, Temple… I simply loved this mysterious character in the first two Rule of Scoundrels books and couldn’t wait to hear his story. It didn’t disappoint at all. Temple is so much more than the man he lets the world see and when Mara, who he has believed for years that he may have killed, comes back into his life he is finally able to become the man he was always meant to be. I loved Mara and Temple together. They have an instant spark that is a combination of anger, fear and lust. They are both drawn to each other and want nothing to do with each other at the same time. Mara isn’t afraid to push Temple. She won’t allow him to take control over her unless she is getting what she wants too. Temple doesn’t know what to do with Mara and it is amusing to see him at a loss as to how to deal with her at times. As the story unfolds so does the attraction between the couple and soon they find themselves unable to hold on to the anger. I love how their relationship changes and grows throughout the story and how they learn to forgive and accept forgiveness. NO GOOD DUKE GOES UNPUNISHED is a very romantic tale.
