Lusting for Covers (24): Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

There were a few covers I wanted to post, but I decided to go with:

Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean
Publisher: Avon (Nov 2014)
Series: The Rules of Scoundrel, 4
Genre: Historical Romance


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

He is the only man smart enough to uncover the truth, 
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.

I absolutely love the cover. How many times to do you find a women in breeches on a cover. Never, unless it's a pirate book. Which this is no pirate book. This is the final book in Scoundrel series. I guess I need to read the rest of the books again. Maybe it was hinted around in the other books, but I never picture Chase as a girl. If you thought Chase was a girl, please tell me (if you read the books). Anyway, this is an awesome cover. So, tell me what you think of the plot, cover, your lust?


  1. This is such a great cover -- and unique, as you said, it's rare to see a woman in breeches on the cover, so it does stand out.

    And as far as her mysterious gender . . . I didn't realize it until later, but if you look back, when Chase is in a scene, there is no he or she pronouns to give her away. Tricky, Sarah MacLean, tricky!


  2. Women power *raises her fist* ! Not many of those, I agree with you, it's a nice change. I'll have to read it to find out about the gender, thanks for sharing :)

  3. I love the cover and am really looking forward to reading this book. I've loved the whole series and was so surprised to find out Chase was female. LOL The only books I recall with women wearing breeches were some of the old romance books with lady pirates.

  4. Love the colors of the cover. I think it also stands out because she is a lone woman. While we all saw covers featuring a man as the main (lust) object.

    Here's mine ;)
