Book Description

Second in a dark, mysterious by ultimately romantic historical romance series by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Gaelen Foley

Product Description

The formidable, rugged, Rohan Kilburn, Duke of Warrington is a top assassin for the Order. Known for his superstitious streak, he has made a point of keeping his heart immune to love, despite his many conquests. But on one cold winter’s night when he returns to his broody seaside castle, he finds that his errant tenants have provided him with a beautiful young woman as a bed-warmer.



But Kate Madsen is no harlot. She is the innocent victim of a kidnapping plot, shy but independent, with intelligent, beguiling eyes. As Rohan and Kate work together to unravel the truth surrounding an ancient curse that could destroy them both, their budding attraction begins to ignite. But when the unthinkable happens, it’s up to Kate to shatter the curse that could prevent her Dangerous Duke from becoming her ideal husband.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing follow-on from the first book 12 Aug 2010
By K.E.B
Format:Paperback
As much as I hate to admit it, this second book in the Inferno Club series was a slight disappointment. Now don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed reading it and it is by no means a bad book. However, after being blown away by the first book in the series, `My Wicked Marquess', I was expecting a similar effect with this one but I'm afraid to say it did not happen. Yes, there is romance and yes, there is a lot of sexual passion but somehow it still did not live up to the high expectations created by the first book.

Whilst `My Wicked Marquess' featured Max Rotherstone and his journey to finding love, this book is centred around Rohan Kilburn, a deadly assassin of the Order. Having convinced himself he is not worthy of love, the Duke has only ever had physical relationships with women. That is until a young virgin named Kate Madsen is brought to him by smugglers as a `bed-warming gift'. Kate, having been abducted from her lonely home in Dartmoor certainly does not intend to let herself be deflowered by the frightening duke. And rather than act the weak, submissive victim Kate proves herself to be strong, intelligent and brave. As the story progresses it appears that Kate and Rohan have been brought together by destiny but will destiny tear them apart again? As Kate and Rohan set out to unlock the secrets of their past, I was reminded of Indiana Jones and his female assistant cracking codes and raiding tombs. Read the book and you'll understand what I mean.

The storyline is exciting and full of unpredictable twists but it is no way as romantic as the one in the first book. But perhaps I am just being too much of a harsh critic. Or perhaps the Marquess of Rotherstone set the bar too high for the Duke to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's certainly dangerous 29 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Review taken from my Blog Post (#68) in January 2011, after borrowing from the library.

Rohan Kilburn, Duke of Warrington,has a formidable and rugged presence, lives in a brooding and reputedly haunted castle in Cornwall. Added to that he bears the nickname "The Beast", and is a top assassin for the Order. Any woman that has ever known him, and there have been legions of them, will also attest to another reason he is called "The Beast". He is immune to love for all that.

After many years away serving the needs of the Order, he returns to Kilburn Castle to bring his errant tenants back into line. To appease The Beast they give him a present of a beautiful young woman ..... to warm his bed.

Kate Maden is definitely no harlot, but an innocent victim of a kidnapping plot by the Prometheans. She's shy and intelligent with a fiery temper and beguiling eyes.

They have to work together to solve the reason behind her kidnap, defeat the evil Promethean scum, find the Alchemist's Tomb and unravel the truth behind the curse of the Dukes of Warrington, all of which could destroy them both.

Before long attraction ignites and there is a rush against time to shatter the curse so that they can be together.

I didn't feel that this second book in the Inferno Club series quite met the delights of the first one, but it came very close nonetheless. All in all a 4 Star read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Enjoyed It 6 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I finished the 1st book then went straight onto the 2nd book which i really enjoyed aswell, however it does get a bit boring when the strory goes into depth about The Order of St Michael & The Promethians, still worth a read though.

However, i don't think there are sharks off the coast of Scotland!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconvincing and Static! 31 July 2010
By Loupop
Format:Paperback
As one of the redeeming features in the largely inconsequential 'My Wicked Marquess', Rohan has unfortunately failed to live up to his promise in this book. I have the distinct feeling that Gaelen Foley has 'lost her way' in this genre somewhat or perhaps just lost a little interest. When compared to some of her previous gems, (Princess, Knights Miscellany et al) this is something of a disappointment. It fits the basket of her latter books (Spice Trilogy, My Dangerous Duke etc.) which are simply not that convincing.

Although Rohan's character is sporadically formed throughout the novel, he is at heart your typically handsome alpha male though Foley can't quite make up her mind it seems as to how exactly she wishes to portray him. In her efforts to progress the typical romantic cliche of him imagining himself to be unloveable, she renders this potentially attractive character into an uninteresting one. In fact his character is eventually completely lost and as a reader, one has little interest in him towards the end. Bearing in mind his key role in the narrative, this is pretty disastrous, to say the least!

It's plain to see that Ms Foley's blueprint for this story was 'Beauty and the Beast', as per the Disney cartoon as opposed to the original fairytale. The 'beast' in this case being equally beautiful if not more so than the heroine. The heroine herself, Kate is simply completely unconvincing in terms of her situation and background. In fact the whole scenario in this book is ludicrous, which would be fine if the author could convey it with conviction but Foley however, is so obviously aware of the flimsiness of her ridiculous plotline,which borrows inconvincingly from so many other novels/films (Da Vinci Code, Indiana Jones, Beauty & the Beast....etc.
