RELEASE BLAST - The Rogue (Devil's Duke1, #1) by Katharine Ashe

 The Rogue
Devil's Duke #1
by  Katharine Ashe
Releasing February 23rd 2016
Avon Publishing

 From The Book Junkie Reads . . .
The Rogue a historical romance novel first in the Devil's Duke series from Katharine Ashe.  This historical romance had me making plans to revisit another series by this author. There were some fascinating characters and an interesting line of events that makes me want to reach for the next book, but first I have to wait for the next book to be release. 


Evan Saint-AndrĂ© Sterling (Saint) made me want to fall in love with him over and over. There was just something about him. He was not overly chatty. He put his thoughts to action. 

Lady Constance was full of so many issues. I was having a hard time connecting with her but there were points where I could understand her. 

Katharine Ashe has just got herself a new reader. I will be heading back to other book from other series by her.  I love to be immersed in the world of mystery and intrigue and this first book in this series is heading in the right direction. This is not a single line book where you know all you need to find the mysterious duke, but there is the HEA for Saint and Constance.

Aspects of Stephanie Laurens writing of her Historical Mystery Romance series ie. . . Bastion Club and  Black Cobra QuartetI look forward to following the Devil's Duke all the way to the unveiling. 

Blurb

In the first book in Katharine Ashe’s stunning new historical series, to capture a duke, a lady must first seduce a rogue. 

Lady Constance Read is independent, beautiful, and in need of a husband-now. The last man on earth she wants is the rogue who broke her heart six years ago, never mind that his kisses are scorching hot…

Evan Saint-AndrĂ© Sterling is rich, scarred, and finished with women-forever. He’s not about to lose his head over the bewitching beauty who once turned his life upside down.

But Constance needs a warrior, and Saint is the perfect man for the job. Only as a married woman can she penetrate Scotland’s most notorious secret society and bring a diabolical duke to justice. When Constance and Saint become allies-and passionate lovers-he’ll risk everything to protect the only woman he has ever loved.
