Kerrigan Byrne returns to her captivating Victorian Rebels series with the USA Today bestselling The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo.
The bravest of heroes. The brashest of rebels. The boldest of lovers. These are the men who risk their hearts and their souls—for the passionate women who dare to love them…
He is known only as The Rook. A man with no name, no past, no memories. He awakens in a mass grave, a magnificent dragon tattoo on his muscled forearm the sole clue to his mysterious origins. His only hope for survival—and salvation—lies in the deep, fiery eyes of the beautiful stranger who finds him. Who nurses him back to health. And who calms the restless demons in his soul…
A LEGENDARY LOVE
Lorelai will never forget the night she rescued the broken dark angel in the woods, a devilishly handsome man who haunts her dreams to this day. Crippled as a child, she devoted herself to healing the poor tortured man. And when he left, he took a piece of her heart with him. Now, after all these years, The Rook has returned. Like a phantom, he sweeps back into her life and avenges those who wronged her. But can she trust a man who’s been branded a rebel, a thief, and a killer? And can she trust herself to resist him when he takes her in his arms?

Dark and Dangerous Hero
I received an ARC of this book to read from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Duke With The Dragon Tattoo is book six in Kerrigan Byrne’s Victorian Rebel Series. It can be read as a stand-alone as it was the first book I’ve read in this series. I do plan to read the rest because I enjoyed this one very much. Lorelai Weatherstoke crippled at age 6 by her nasty and violent older brother at age 14 rescues broken creatures, so when she finds a young man mostly dead under an ash tree she takes him in and nurses him back to health and gives him the name Ash as he is unable to remember anything of his past. He is pretty sure he was dead when Lorelai called him back to life he makes her the promise that as long as the sun sets in the west he will come back to her. However her evil brother sells him into slavery aboard a merchant ship and it takes 20 years for him to come back to claim her. Lots of adventure, nasty villains, a Pirate King, lost treasure maps, mysteries to be solved and of course True Love.Quite Steamy Publishing Date August 28, 2018 #TheDukeWithTheDragonTattoo #NetGalley
I have no words to express how PHENOMENAL this was! You can’t help but fall in love with Rook/Ash he’s the absolute broken hero that had one purpose to his survival and that’s to get to the only person he loves.
Evil forces took him away from Lorelei the young girl that helps him heal after being so cruelly tortured and left for dead.
Lorelei helps heal broken and injured animals and for her Rook/Ash is someone that has an instant conection with her. He makes her a promise that he’ll come to her no matter how long it takes. And he keeps his promise just in the nick of time, her sadistic brother is forcing her to wed!
This is a book that one should only read without any interruptions, it’s a heart wrenching angst filled story that captivates the reader from the very first page!
It’s smoldering HOT full of sizzling passion. Intriguing and plenty of action. This will not disappoint, Kerrigan Byrne has absolutely hit the pot of gold with the whole series! I recommend 100%!
I recieved a complimantery copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This is my honest unbiased opinion.
