Eva Devon has done it again with her amazing A DUKE FOR THE ROAD. #1 in a new and promising series, THE DUKE’S SECRET.
Masterfully written, well crafted with well developed, flawed characters. The storyline is absolutely delicious. A definite romp through Regency England. Secrets, an abduction, highwayman, danger, suspense, mystery and a powerful romance, kept me turning pages from the first page to the last. Love, love, loved these characters, so strong, independent and determined, they captured my heart. Another must read by Eva Devon, who never fails to amaze me. Powerful and compelling. Can’t wait to read more of the DUKE’S SECRETS series.
