British agent Cora deBeau has spent the last three years seducing secrets from the most hardened of French spies while searching for her parents’ killer. When her latest assignment goes awry, she suffers at the hands of her French captor until Guy Trevelyan, the Earl of Helsford and master cryptographer, saves her during a daring rescue. Scarred and wary of men, Cora shies away from the one man who could heal her savaged heart.
After rescuing Cora from a French dungeon, Guy discovers it was one of his deciphered messages that led to her captivity. Guy strives to earn her forgiveness while outwitting their enemy. But will he find the scars on her wounded soul run too deep?
A Lady’s Revenge by Tracey Devlyn is a superb novel of history, intrigue and romance. Devlyn is a master of time travel…I truly felt transported to 1804. Guy and Cora are two astoundingly strong characters, which is probably why they are quite often at each others’ throats. In bad ways, and good ways. 😉
Tracey continually kept me guessing throughout the novel. I was caught up in all the suspense and the romance. I loved the characters, Dinks especially. She was just perfect as Cora’s maid/friend. She was funny, brave and encouraging.
This book is why I will continue reading historical romance. I fell in love with the story from the beginning, and loved it all the way through. Wonderfully written, descriptive and full of romantic suspense, A Lady’s Revenge by Tracey Devlyn is just fantastic. The Nexus Series is one of my all-time favorites!
