The Duke (Victorian Rebels #4) by Kerrigan Byrne Historical Romance ARC Review.

He is noble, notorious, and takes no prisoners...

They say that now His Grace, Collin Talmage, Duke of Trenwyth has only one hand, he might finally be a mere mortal, but no one seems willing to test the theory. Rich as Midas, big as a Viking, beautiful as Adonis, and lethal as a feral wolf, he is the English Empire’s golden son. But now he’s lost everything. Most of his family died in a terrible accident, his protégé and closest friend betrayed him on the battlefield, and his left hand was cut off while he was a prisoner of war. The only thing that’s kept him going until now is the memory of a night spent in the arms of a mysterious raven-haired woman almost a year ago…

Imogen Pritchard is a nurse by day, but a fallen woman—and a spy—by night. Seduced on the job years ago by a Duke who mourned for the loss of his family, Imogen has never shaken the memory of the man’s despair—or the fathomless depths of pleasure he brought to her. But as the threat of betrayals, blackmail, and secrets abound, Imogen and Collin are thrown back together in a dizzying swirl of dangerous games and earthshattering desire. But can their love overcome the everything that threatens to tear them apart?


Imogen Pritchard is working two jobs to pay off her dead father's debts.  Her day job is as a nurse at the hospital.  If they found out where else she worked she would be sacked. She works as a barmaid at a brothel, only because that is who her father owed the money to.  Even with both jobs it's almost impossible to pay the rent and keep food on the table for her mother, sister and herself. 
Collin Talmage the new Duke of Trenwyth is a spy in Queen Victoria's service.  He is on his way to a very dangerous mission. 
This is a marvellously complex story.  Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, our author twisted it around.  Our severely damaged hero and heroine change beyond all recognition during the course of the book.  It is part of a series,  but you can read each one on it's own.  However if you are going to read them all this one could give away some secrets.  An incredibly good story line.  I loved every page. 



If you're anything like me, the best night is one spent with a brawny highlander, a mysterious werewolf, a conflicted vampire, or a hot-headed Irishman. My stories span the spectrum of romantic fiction from historical, to paranormal, to romantic suspense. But I can always promise my readers one thing: memorable and sexy Celtic heroes who are guaranteed to heat your blood before they steal your heart. Lose yourself in the enchanted Celtic Isles, you never know who, or what, will find you...
