Stone Duke Devil
I enjoyed this book very much. The feisty young Aggie somehow managed to upend the duke's calm existence. She met him on one of her nightly escapades. Disguised as a hackney driver, she was out on the streets of London at night looking for her father's murderers. His need to protect her, even though she was a stranger to him, and her stubborn independence caused them to clash. In the end, however, she realized the duke was the best thing that could happen to her. Read the book to find out how their lives take a course neither had anticipated.
Good story line
There were good things to applaud in this book but I’m not into all the sex scenes and twisted mind games that the author had a need to include. The person who was behind all the terror didn’t seem true to it whom and where he associated. There was too much darkness and tragedy. Each character comes from a place of a harsh, debilitating history. The characters were lively, the plot moved along quickly, and there are some daring, last minute escapes and rescues which gave me the chance to give the book three stars.
