  • A Rogue by Any Other Name moves past the expected, and delivers two characters who are out of the ordinary. Penelope is quirky but intelligent, and the dialogue is delightful.”

It’s another unforgettable love story with passion and power—power that will shake you to the core.” 

    RT Book Reviews

    " Sarah MacLean knocks it out of the park again, with A ROUGE BY ANY OTHER NAME! This book has everything; adventure, desire, passion, romance, anger, humor, suspense....everything. Can't wait for book two to come out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 1/23/2014

    " So far I have loved everything written by Sarah MacLean and this doesn't disappoint. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 1/11/2014

    " I think this gets off to a bit of a rocky start - the borderline spinster heroine starts out too prudish and uptight, and the hero is crueler to her than I think he should have been allowed to get away with. Even so, and even with a lot of historical romance tropes I've seen before, this book totally won me over by the end, and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lana | 1/11/2014

    " I would have scored it higher except the first half of the book dragged and I was skimming a lot. The second half makes up for it though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 10/14/2012

    " This book was very predicable but still entertaining. Bourne's transformation felt unrealistic and forced and Penelope's insecurities were overdone and after a while a little annoying. Overall I enjoyed reading this book but would say it was just okay. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi (The Story Siren) | 9/14/2012

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, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels.
