Between the Devil and the Duke

Between the Devil and the Duke (Season for Scandal, #3)Between the Devil and the Duke by Kelly Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I've been looking for a great historical romance for some time now and decided there weren't any out there when I stumbled across Between the Devil and the Duke.

I loved the way Kelly turned the hero/heroine dynamic on its head, with the hero being smitten and the heroine holding all the power. The suspense plot was intriguing, although some of the earlier clues could have been left out to keep the secret under wraps longer.

Other (minor) issues included:
- a lightbulb moment referencing earlier books in the series that I haven't (yet) read
- too many Mmmm's on Alex's side
- I did not care for Angelique's pet name
- Considering his larger-than-life, dangerous persona Alex should have been allowed to wreak havoc before being caught off guard by a bullet.

Overall a very enjoyable read.
