Kerrigan Byrne returns to her captivating Victorian Rebels series with the USA Today bestselling The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo.

The bravest of heroes. The brashest of rebels. The boldest of lovers. These are the men who risk their hearts and their souls--for the passionate women who dare to love them...

He is known only as The Rook. A man with no name, no past, no memories. He awakens in a mass grave, a magnificent dragon tattoo on his muscled forearm the sole clue to his mysterious origins. His only hope for survival--and salvation--lies in the deep, fiery eyes of the beautiful stranger who finds him. Who nurses him back to health. And who calms the restless demons in his soul...


Lorelai will never forget the night she rescued the broken dark angel in the woods, a devilishly handsome man who haunts her dreams to this day. Crippled as a child, she devoted herself to healing the poor tortured man. And when he left, he took a piece of her heart with him. Now, after all these years, The Rook has returned. Like a phantom, he sweeps back into her life and avenges those who wronged her. But can she trust a man who's been branded a rebel, a thief, and a killer? And can shetrust herself to resist him when he takes her in his arms?

Thoroughly enjoyable historical romance. Well written, some of the dialogue is over the top but nontheless enjoyable. This was my first by this author & I'll try other books by the same.

Contemporary plot and characters in a pseudo-Victorian setting. This is not a historical romance. This is a romantic fantasy set in the writer's notion of Victorian England. Glad I didn't waste my money buying the book; too bad my library wasted money buying not one but two copies.

And why did the reviewer have to describe this as a bodice-ripper? I hate this derogatory term. It's been used for decades, usually by people who never read romances, to slam romances of all types.

I also really enjoyed this series. She is an excellent writer. I'm definitely a fan. She knows how to keep your attention through each chapter, you just can't put the book down. Highly recommend this series!

If you read a book by this author you will be hooked. Her descriptions are wonderful and her plots are far from ordinary. It would be best if you start at the beginning of this series with The Highwayman.

A rather "intense" story that depicts the darker side of the Victorian Age while exploring what it takes to let go of the trauma of the past as an individual and in relationships. Learning to forgive and trust oneself and others is wonderful. A cathartic reading experience for me!
