Cover Reveal: Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean

Confession: I am a HUGE Sarah MacLean fan. There are some days when I want nothing more than to sink into a world of poofy ball gowns, social etiquette I can't even dream of having to learn and execute on a daily basis, and roguish gentlemen who always seem to melt when they meet their special lady, and Sarah MacLean is a master at writing such historical romances. Given my fangirl status, it goes without saying that I'm extremely excited today to share with you guys the cover for the final book in her Rules of Scoundrels series (seriously, don't miss out on these books, they're AWESOME), Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover.

Ready to see it? *flails*




RITA Award winning author, Sarah MacLean, reveals the identity of The Fallen Angel’s final scoundrel in the spectacular conclusion to her New York Times bestselling Rules of Scoundrels series…

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.


Here's what those closest to the book think about the cover:

“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

SARAH MACLEAN


Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born far too late for her own season. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book. Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, baby daughter, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels. She loves to hear from readers.

  4. *MAKES GRABBY HANDS* Oh my word. JENNY. Did you know that Chase is actually the sister of Simon, who's the hero in the last book of MacLean's Love by Numbers series? *dies* I may need to binge on Sarah MacLean now.

  7. I love this cover! The beautiful gown and the "man's" britches are perfect for this trope (one that I love too.) I've not read any of Sarah's books - I'm going to go hunt her down now on Goodreads. Thanks, Jenny :)
