    superb historical

    In 1760, Captain Rose looks forward to a hot meal, a warm bed, and rest as the Duke of Ithrone after two days at sea. Instead he checks a commotion at the aptly named Black Rat tavern where he sees two hooligans accosting a lady of quality. He saves Arabella Barstowe from certain rape. She repays him by stealing his horse and fleeing into the night.

    Over the next few years, Bella survives in London by copying letters for an infamous scandal rag. However, she also learns the truth about who arranged her abduction four years ago. She vows vengeance, but knows only one person who could do this for her. Bella seeks out the pirate she never forgot. For his part, Captain Rose never forgot the lady he rescued.

    The latest Secret Georgian Rakish romance (see A Lady's Secret and The Secret Wedding) is a fast-paced, action-packed tale starring a courageous female and a resolute hero who uses his half-brother's reputation as Captain Rose when it is convenient to do so. The tale is filled with intrigue as Bella seeks revenge against the person who destroyed her life but instead she finds love as Buccaneer Bella, but her thirst remains powerful. Although the story line slows a bit in the center for fans to catch their breath, The Secret Duke is another superb historical in the Malloren world of Georgian romance Queen Jo Beverly.

    Awesome Plot

    The storyline of this book is great. There's no hassle with a high ranking male believing a low-born woman isn't good enough for him. Full of action and intrigue.

    With duke who plays at piracy how can you go wrong?

    With a noblemen in disguise who falls in love with a changeable and strong-minded heroine, this book will draw you in as you hope for a happy ending among the twists and turns of lies that control their lives.

    CONFUSING PLOT

    I lost interest 2/3rds of the way thru and felt it was all over the place with too many characters to keep track of who really had no bearing on the original plot. I have read all of the others but found this one a bit tedious. I Still enjoyed Thorn but felt his character could have been stronger. Bella was truly a "March hare." LORRAINE

    Fascinating Romance

    Once again Jo Beverley has written a fascinating novel, full of historical details but with plenty of action and unique, interesting characters. The hero and heroine came across as real people, and their relationship and adventures had plenty of twists and turns to keep me turning the pages! I love Jo Beverley's novels and this was great!
