Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Devil's Cub is one of Georgette Heyer's most famous and memorable novels, featuring a dashing and wild young nobleman and the gently bred young lady in whom he finally meets his match

Like father, like son

Dominic Alistair, Marquis of Vidal and fiery son of the notorious Duke of Avon, has established a rakish reputation that rivals his father's, living a life of excess and indulgence. Banished to the Continent after wounding his opponent in a duel, Vidal schemes to abduct the silly aristocrat bent on seducing him into marriage and make her his mistress instead. In his rush, however, he seems to have taken the wrong woman

A young lady of remarkable fortitude

Determined to save her sister from ruin, virtuous Mary Challoner intercepts the Marquis's advances and throws herself into his path, hoping Vidal will release her upon realizing his error. But as the two become irrevocably entangled, Mary's reputation and future lie in the hands of a devilish rake, who finds her more fascinating every day

WHAT READERS SAY:

This is my favorite Heyer It has action, romance, and humor. I couldn't put it down.

A sequel to These Old Shades, being about the son of the Duke of Avon and Leonie this is a must read for Heyer fans. This is my fourth copy of this book. I have worn out each of my previous copies to the point of falling apart.

Stylish, romantic, sharp and wittyher heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing.

Margaret Drabble

If you've never read Heyer's books before, prepare to be charmed. Or come rediscover her magic.

Linda Howard

Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen. Publishers Weekly

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to. Katie Fforde

Synopsis:

Intelligent, practical Mary Challoner knew wicked Dominic Alastair, Marquis of Vidal, wouldn't marry her sister, despite her mother's matchmaking schemes. So Mary coolly prepared to protect her sister by deceiving Vidal. But she certainly hadn't expected the infuriated nobleman to kidnap her Reluctantly awakening to his responsibility--and realizing just how serious Mary was about her virtue--Vidal proposed marriage.

But after all the carefully laid wedding plots he'd dodged, Vidal had never expected to be refused by a chit Baffled, bewitched and frustratingly tempted, Vidal swore that Mary would be his wife. Even if it was the last thing either of them ever did...
