Product Description

Review

captivating' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY 'Gaelen Foleys latest tale is sure to please. The strong, three-dimensional characters, the overpowering sensuality and the poignancy of the story stir the heart and the senses. Enjoy, savor and cherish this keeper.' ROMANTIC TIMES 'an addictive combination of complex, subtly shaded characters; richly sensual love scenes; elegantly fluid prose; and a plot laced with danger and intrigue. Lucien is a truly memorable "tortured" hero, and readers will be captivated by his redemption through Alice's love. Foley's wonderful romance will appeal to Amanda Quick and Stephanie Laurens fans.' BOOKLIST

From the Inside Flap

"Gaelen Foley has become one of the hottest new writers in romance, enticing her readers with bold love stories that burn with emotional intensity. Now in new novel, she presents her most unforgettable hero yet, the irresistible Lord of Fire.
After years of preparation, he has baited his trap well, luring the depraved members of Society into his devil's playground so he can earn their trust and uncover their secrets. Yet no one in London suspects that Lord Lucien Knight is England's most cunning spy, an officer who has sacrificed his soul for his country. Now an unexpected intruder has invaded his fortress of sin, jeopardizing his carefully laid plans-and igniting his deepest desires.
Beautiful, innocent, Alice Montague finds herself at the mercy of scandalous Lord Lucien. But as he begins his slow seduction to corrupt her virtue, Alice glimpses a man tormented by his own choices, a man who promises her nothing except his undeniable passion. . . . --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed reading this book, as I have all of Gaelen Foley's other books. Set in the Regency period, but slightly different to the usual Regency romances, the story centres around England's top spy and an innocent young woman, who for once is not an empty headed miss looking for a husband. I particularly liked the way that the author gradually lets the character of Lord Lucien (the spy) unfold, allowing the reader to really get to know him, for he is not the person he first appears to be. The story is filled with secrets, seduction and scandal, the reader is also introduced to Damien, Lucien's identical twin brother who I am looking forward to reading more about in Lord Of Ice.

I think I'm becomming addicted to Gaelen Foley's novels as after reading THE DUKE, I couldn't wait to read this, the next book in her KNIGHTS MISCELLANY series. You don't have to have read THE DUKE first as each of these books stands on its own even though Foley is writing about the same family.

As with THE DUKE this is another very sexy read and Foley is great at combining strong sensual romance with a page-turning dramatic adventure plot...

Much enjoyed!Onto the next!

Review taken from my Blog Post (#75) in January 2011 after borrowing the book from the library.

Just finished one of the Gaelen Foley's that has been sitting waiting for me ..... it was a 4.5 star read and make no mistakes!

I haven't been that much in love with a Hero since Lord Anthony Blake (Stephanie Laurens).

Dark, dangerous and utterly gorgeous Spy Lord Lucien Knight gives the beautiful and virtuous Alice Montague a choice, stay with him and let her Nephew have his Mama, or so and disappoint the poor sick little boy. What would you do?

Secretly utterly fascinated with him Alice stays, and falls under his spell. She finds a tormented man with a whole cavern of secrets, but will she find love?

Read it do .... and then go and find the story of his twin, Damien Knight ..... I just read a small excerpt of that and it looks full of the same kind of promise.

Debated how many stars to give this. To be fair, some readers will love it (as witnessed by other reviews). However, others like me will despair of it. Gaelen Foley writes quite well for an historical romance novelist, but I found the whole premise of her story way too over the top. One particularly ridiculous scene has the hero and his men racing through London after a carriage (a carriage, not even a curricle) and losing it despite the fact they are on horseback and the streets apparently busy. Meanwhile, the villain is strangling his abducted hostage, apparently in full view of the world as he is able to communicate easily with his driver, not possible if he was in a closed carriage.

Read this if you think you will like a (apparently) corrupted hero with the nickname "Lucifer" and a "Goody-Two-Shoes" heroine who still falls to his seduction, but, of course, will be the saving of him. Read it if you like gothic fantasy that has almost nothing to do with reality and requires a great deal of suspension of belief. But, if like me, you enjoy character development, a believable plot and real romance, forget it.

The characters are poorly written and the plot is terribly cliched. Add to that a host of anachronisms or Americanisms which should have been picked up by the author or an editor. For example, various references to eating muffins for breakfast; the balls of a billiard game being the type that would be used for a game of pool; saying the Gunpowder Plot was a Jacobite plot (the king being targetted was the great-grandfather of the James the Jacobites wanted to restore the throne!). I'll forgive using fish and chips as a password long before fish and chips came together, because it did make me giggle, but really the whole thing came across as a pastiche, rather than a serous attempt to write a regency romance

A purchase on behalf of my wife. She is a great fan of these period novels and confirms that all the books are an excellent read with good storylines ( as long as you are a fan of period dramas of course).

I ordered this book thinking it was the one advertised in the picture. When it arrived I was disappointed and rather annoyed that it was a different version and the cover did not match the remainder of my set of these books. If you order this book you will get the same novel under a different cover.
