Devlin Markham, the notorious “Devil Duke” of Huntington, needs a woman. And not just any woman. If he can’t woo one of the most eccentric bluestockings of the Ton within the month, he can kiss his hard-earned fortune goodbye. But he’s always thought love a wasted emotion and marriage an inconvenience at best. And oddly enough, Lady Sophie Wolcott seems unmoved by his charm…

When Sophie learns her beloved orphanage is in imminent danger, she will do anything to save it. Even marry a ruthless rake who takes what he wants in business and pleasure. A man who’s everything she’s always feared most—but whom she reluctantly begins yearning for.

Then Sophie becomes the target of a killer lurking from the dark shadows of Devlin’s past. And they find not only their lives in jeopardy but their very hearts.

I really loved this book. Devlin and Sophie were made for each other, and their dialogue was sparkling and witty.

Who doesn't love a devilish duke? Especially one who has a butt like the guy on the cover of this book!? And there is nothing I like more than a businesslike marriage of convenience that quickly skates over the edge into pleasure.

Anyhow, I hugely enjoyed this Victorian romance and found the myst... ...more

This was sheer, ridiculous fun. All my favorite tropes, so if you like rakes + bluestockings and unnecessary amounts of angst via People Needing Revenge, this is probably a good fit for you. The romance was a bit too insta-love, and the Queen Victoria part was odd, but overall, a+ fun, do recomme... ...more
