When I reviewed A Devil of a Duke I hadn’t actually *finished* the book, and had a couple of chapters to go! Now I’ve finally found time to read it through to the end.
It was going to be a tough sell to make this happy ending work, because the hero is a duke, and the heroine middle class and with a criminal background. I do think author Madeline Hunter did a good job of convincing me, however.
My original review is HERE.
HE MAY BE A DEVIL
He’s infamous, debaucherous, and known all over town for his complete disregard for scandal, and positively irresistible seductions. Gabriel St. James, Duke of Langford, is obscenely wealthy, jaw-droppingly handsome, and used to getting exactly what he wants. Until his attention is utterly captured by a woman who refuses to tell him her name, but can’t help surrendering to his touch . . .
BUT SHE’S NO ANGEL EITHER . . .
Amanda Waverly is living two lives—one respectable existence as secretary to an upstanding lady, and one far more dangerous battle of wits—and willpower—with the devilish Duke. Langford may be the most tempting man she’s ever met, but Amanda’s got her hands full trying to escape the world of high-society crime into which she was born. And if he figures out who she really is, their sizzling passion will suddenly boil over into a much higher stakes affair . . .
