Publication Date: May 24, 2011

Challenge: Historical Romance
Rating: 4 STARS

Lady Lucinda Grey vows never to marry. She loves her freedom and since she was left with a very nice size fortune from her deceased father, she can enjoy that freedom and not conform to what her “duty” would be. Unbeknownst to her, she has been targeted by Garenne. Garenne is a psychopath and has been hired to kidnap Grey.

Lord William Randall has built his reputation as a rake. This disguise lets him gather information for the Young Corinthians, a spy organization, without raising suspicions. Originally Garenne had been thought dead but now they know that he is loose and on the prowl. Will is charged with protecting Grey and to do that he must get close to her. Will knows that Grey would never consider him a suitor so he appeals to her intellectually side by bargaining something she wants.

What starts as a purely business arrangement turns into two people unable to resist each other. With the mix of danger and romance rolled up, The Devil in Disguise is a fast-paced read. Thrown into the mix is a whole spy organization that gives The Devil in Disguise an air of mystery that will keep you reading. Of course you do have the typical nuances of a romance read with the main characters denying their love to each other and then coming together with fierce passion only to find one has betrayed the other. But it wouldn’t be a historical romance otherwise, right?
