A Devil's Duke Novel
In Katharine Ashe’s newest unforgettable romance, the question on everyone’s lips is answered at last… “Who is Lady Justice?”
“This author rocks historical romance.”—USA Today
How does a lady of wit and courage bring an arrogant lord to his knees?
Entice him to Scotland, strip him of titles and riches, and make him prove what sort of man he truly is.
Handsome, wealthy, and sublimely confident, Colin Gray, the new Earl of Egremoor, has vowed to unmask the rabble-rousing pamphleteer, Lady Justice, the thorn in England’s paw. And he’ll stop at nothing.
Smart, big-hearted, and passionately dedicated to her work, Lady Justice longs to teach her nemesis a lesson in humility. But her sister is missing, and a perilous journey with her archrival into unknown territory just might turn fierce enemies into lovers.
Aliases, mistaken identities, and a tumultuous chase through the Scottish Highlands by two sympathetic and fun protagonists make the second installment of Ashe's Devil's Duke Regency series (after The Rogue) a rollicking page-turner. In addition to changing her name from Emily to Zenobia, the winning heroine has achieved fame and earned income as Lady Justice, author of provocative pamphlets championing the rights of women, laborers, and the poor. Unable to find her missing sister, she reluctantly appeals to her nemesis, Peregrine, a member of the Falcon Club, for help and discovers that Peregrine is Colin Gray, the new Earl of Egremoor. She was betrothed to him at birth, once loved him, and now despises him. After they cross paths with a highway robber who's been using Colin's name, they're forced to run for their lives. As painful memories of their childhood friendship bubble up, they come to see through each other's facades and challenge each other to be their true selves. Eloquent descriptive passages bring the countryside to life, and sweet and eccentric supporting characters add zest to this entertaining and emotionally satisfying tale.
Interesting and kept my attention
The storyline was a bit different from the typical Regency books but the story itself was entertaining. Sometimes it did become a bit to preachy but that didn’t take away from the tale.
Wow. The research, work and thought that went into this book is astounding. The depth of the characters, complexity, history and romance all come together amazingly. Hats off to a great boom.
One of my new favorite authors!
The character development was impeccable! I couldn’t put it down.
