Original and exciting Regency read,
This review is from: The Duke: Number 1 in series (Knight Miscellany) (Paperback)
This was my first Gaelen Foley novel and it certainly won't be the last! The author takes your hand and carries you into England's past in such a way that you are reluctant to let go.
The Duke is the story of a heart-sore gentleman seeking revenge for the death of the woman he believed he had a tendre for, and a wronged beauty who is forced to presume the role of a courtesan in London's elitist society after life has dealt her a savage blow.
Hero and heroine in turn both sizzle and snuggle together in an addictive read that had me willing the fates not to conspire against them. I have read quite a number of books set in this historic period and usually find myself quickly returning to the incomparable Georgette Heyer. In this case, I went and ordered the second of Gaelen Foley's Miscellancy series, in the hopes that I would discover another really good story to lose myself in.
