I ve given this an A at AAR so thats 45 stars rounded upKelly Bowen is one of the best of the bunch of new authors of historical romance to have emerged in the last couple of years and she continues to show herself than deserving of the praise her novels have received I ve reviewed a few and rated them highly impressed by her ability to craft strong plotlines and characters and to imbue her dialogue with unforced humour and realism Best of all she writes a strong well developed romance that sizzles with sexual tension while also showing the protagonists becoming emotionally intimate Her current Season for Scandal series makes use of an unusual premise and in the last two books Duke of My Heart and A Duke to Remember she s allowed her heroines to positively shine as independent intelligent women who make their own rules while continuing to live within the bounds set by society Not for Ms Bowen the curl tossing foot stamping annoying feisty heroine no her ladies are clever pragmatic determined and when called for devious ualities which make them irresistibly attractive to their heroes men who are secure enough in their masculinity to be able to appreciate their uniue talentsIn Between the Devil and the Duke the third book in the series we meet Lady Angeliue Archer a young woman carrying the weight of her family s responsibilities on her slim shoulders Her father the Maruess of Hutton died recently in a carriage accident but left very little money to his four children and her older brother the new maruess is very uickly spending what little there is on drink women gambling and dodgy investments Angeliue is at her wit s end Her younger twin brothers risk being kicked out of Harrow if she can t find the money to pay their fees the household bills are mounting and she has already sold everything of value that isn t nailed down Her brother shows no sign of relinuishing his dissolute and expensive lifestyle so it s up to her to find a solution While she s very beautiful Angeliue never took during her one season acuiring herself a reputation as The Marble Maiden owing to her inability to dance or make small talk or display any of the accomplishments reuired of a d butante So given that reputation and that her current state of impoverishment is unlikely to remain a secret for long marrying money is not an option Not that she wants to sell herself off to the highest bidder anyway An almost betrothal to one of her brother s closest friends was a near escape and it s one she has no wish to repeatWe met Alexander Lavoie in Duke of My Heart and learned that he is a partner in Chagarre and Associates the business run by Ivory Moore now Duchess of Alderidge which is one of the best kept secrets in London The firm specialises in fixing the seemingly disastrous and making scandal disappear and is discreet efficient and very expensive Alex is also the proprietor of a highly successful gaming establishment and thus very well placed to learn the sorts of secrets in which the firm trades Rumoured to have been both a spy and an assassin he is charming clever manipulative and dangerously sexy but completely unprepared for the sudden fascination he experiences for the anonymous woman playing uietly at the vingt et un table who wins a lot than she losesShe hasn t gone unnoticed by him on her previous visits but on this particular night she is on the receiving end of some unwelcome attention from one of the men at her table so Alex steps in to politely but firmly encourage him to desist Alex is already curious about her she obviously knows what she s doing at the card table but isn t blatant about it she loses small amounts wins large ones and knows how to use her physical assets to distract a man and put him off his gameWhen Alex realises that behind Angeliue s lovely exterior lies a brilliant mathematical mind he offers her a job He can tell that she s not at his club for fun or to indulge in the thrill of the forbidden she needs the money but he doesn t know why and is determined to ferret out the truth He knows a woman in trouble when he sees one and when he encounters her brother and two of his inebriated friends he begins to have an inkling of its sourceThe story that follows is well plotted and nicely paced as Alex and Angeliue with the help of Ivory and Max start to piece together the truth concerning the late maruess finances uncovering a trail of smuggling blackmail and murder It s an intriguing and thoroughly entertaining story and I was completely caught up in it and anxious to know what was going to happen nextThe romance is very well done too The sparks fly between Angeliue and Alex right from the start the tension between them at their first meeting is thick enough to be cut with a knife and the connection between them is intense I love a smitten hero in a romance and there s no doubt that Alex is well and truly bowled over by Angeliue but what I loved even is that while he s undoubtedly physically attracted to her he s just as wowed by her mental acuity Following on from his offer of employment Angeliue presents him with a proposal as to how she can maximise the profits from her vingt et un table and for Alex it s a real coup de foudre he is rather afraid he had just fallen in love Angeliue is just as strongly attracted to Alex although her experience with the men in her life who were supposed to look after her and didn t her father her brother makes her understandably cautious about trusting anyone but herself She tries to keep Alex out but his kindness and his persistence gradually break down her barriers until she realises she can trust him absolutely They are a very well matched couple not just mentally but in the way they are able to provide something the other has been missing Alex encourages Angeliue to be herself in a way that nobody else ever has and I really enjoyed watching her self confidence blossom as the result of his love and acceptance and Alex who has preferred to remain aloof and never shared much of himself with anyone finds the sort of contentment with Angeliue that he d never expected to feelBetween the Devil and the Duke is a really enjoyable story and I loved every minute of it The story is engrossing the characterisation is excellent and the love scenes are sensual and romantic Kelly Bowen has further cemented her place as one of the best of the historical romance authors currently writing and I m eagerly looking forward to her next book
