One of Amazon's Best Romances of 2017!
“A romance that Kathleen Woodiwiss herself would be proud to have written.” -Booklist (starred)
Katharine Ashe continues her lush and sensual Devil’s Duke series with a sweeping story of unbreakable love
Six years ago, when Lady Amarantha Vale was an innocent in a foreign land and Gabriel Hume was a young naval officer, they met . . . and played with fire.
Now Gabriel is the dark lord known to society as the Devil’s Duke, a notorious recluse hidden away in a castle in the Highlands. Only Amarantha knows the truth about him, and she won’t be intimidated. He is the one man who can give her the answers she needs.
But Gabriel cannot let her learn his darkest secret. So begins a game of wit and desire that proves seduction is more satisfying—and much more wicked—the second time around…
“This is historical romance at its best.”

I received an advanced copy of this book.
Katharine Ashe is one of the authors whose books I always purchase. She has a gift for bringing settings to life within the story and the research she does to bring realism to her books shows.
I liked Gabriel, the hero, and Amarantha, the heroine, in this story. I did feel that Amarantha was stubborn at times and if she and the Duke had talked things out they could have worked things out sooner.
There were some twists in this story that I hadn't anticipated. Overall, it was an enjoyable read and the use of different locales and ones not typically found in Regencies very interesting.
