Description

In The Devil Duke, the beautiful but scheming baroness will stop at nothing to keep her man from falling for his new waifish house guest, to no avail. We catch up with the jilted aristocrat in The Demon Duchess.

Abigail Sutton does not take kindly to being dumped. Desperation leads her to seek comfort in the arms of her surly horse trainer, the mysterious Jack Johnson from America. A night of fleeting passion results in a life-altering “predicament”. Now, the baroness finds herself fighting for the attentions of an entirely different sort of man – a man who is much more than he seems – a man who might just offer her the family she’s never had. That is, if she can prove to him she is not just a pampered pain in the ass.

Her pursuit of the handsome but stubborn drifter lands the baroness in Montana of all places, where she will learn plenty of new skills – rope-tying and lasso-tossing, just to name two. Many surprises are in store for the newly thawed ice queen.

Heartbreak over one man will lead to true love with another….

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and I enjoyed this one too, but I think the first one set such a high standard that I liked it quite a bit more. This book revisits some of the characters from the first book, but they essentially switch roles; those that were primary become secondary and those that were secondary become primary. And of course, new characters are added.

    This book had a bit of a twist that I won’t spoil here, but it was refreshing as the Baroness was not one of my favorite people and it was nice to see her one upped a bit. Because of the way she acted in the first novel, I found myself not as emotionally tied to this story as I was to the first. I did come to like the characters a lot more by the end.

    In all, it is a great addition to the series and I hope Ms. Bowen continues with additional characters and stories. I can think of a few that could certainly be included in a future book.

    I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

    This is the second book in The Demon Duchess Series. The first book in the Series was really great, and this one is wonderful! I love this second chance to love, and opposites attrack story. I like it when an author succeds to make me love a character I haven’t loved much in a previous book! Abigail is such a great character! I love how Jack learn to trust the love ones. Abigail and John’s story is beautiful. I love their happy ending. Virginia Ferguson did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it.
