Harry Morant’s tough exterior hides a badly scarred heart. Home after eight years at war, Harry is planning a practical, unemotional marriage. But his careful plans are threatened by an unexpected passion for an unknown lady.
A lifetime of lies has brought Lady Helen (Nell) Freymore to the brink of ruin. Forced into a marriage she never thought to have, she soon finds herself powerfully drawn to this deceptively gentle soldier… and increasingly worried about his reaction once he discovers her secret.
Australian author Gracie's second "Devil Riders" Regency romance (after The Stolen Princess) is a breezy diversion that follows the trials of Lady Helen ("just Nell") Freymore, a smart, tough woman fallen on hard times after her father bankrupts the family and loses their home in a card game. Harry Morant, an earl's wealthy bastard son, falls for Nell after seeing her sneak into the Freymore estate stables to help a mare through a difficult labor. In an effort to woo her, he buys the estate and offers her the chance to return home and help him to breed the horses she loves. Nell is not so much captive as captivated by Harry's charm, and fans of light romance will be drawn to this strong-willed couple and their steamy happily-ever-after tale.
