Overview

He was Dominic Edgemont, Lord Nightwyck, heir to the Marquis of Gravenwold. But he was also a dark-eyed, half-gypsy bastard....

When tall, handsome Dominic sees one of his Romany band whipping a beautiful, flame-haired captive, he never dreams she is a pampered heiress stolen fro the English court. To have her, he will pay a king's ransom and make himself her lord.

Lovely Catrina forbids Dominic her bed, but her fiery temper is no match for his cool determination to take her as his lover. Still, in this novel from Kat Martin, she will not be passion's slave forever. She and her Gypsy Lord will meet again-in a glittering London setting, far from the rustic tent they shared. Will her desire for revenge overwhelm her natural urge to love?

A sensual historical romance set in 19th-century Europe, reissued to tie in with the release of Sweet Vengeance. After being kidnapped and sold to gypsies, a beautiful English heiress is rescued by a half-Gypsy lord . . . who plans to make her his lover. "A page-turner from beginning to end."--Johanna Lindsey. Reissue.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kat Martin has a winner. Gypsy Lord is a page-turner from beginning to end!" —Johanna Lindsey

"A big, rich and original love story that will keep you turning the pages far into the middle of the night." —Brenda Joyce

"Kat Martin dishes up sizzling passions and true love, then she serves it with savoir faire. Bon appetit!" —Los Angeles Daily News

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Dominic Edgemont's reputation in late Georgian British society is rather tarnished: aside from rumors of womanizing, he's said to be part gypsy--a rumor that Catherine Barrington, Countess of Arondale, discovers to be true after she is kidnapped by scheming relatives, passed from hand to hand and finally bought by Dominic who is visiting the gypsy band where he was raised. A clash of wills follows as Dominic tries to seduce Catherine out of the virginity she has so far managed to preserve; as fate would have it, the two, not surprisingly, fall in love and he succeeds. Martin's tale is a good one with some reservations, one being an unnecessary scene in which Catherine provokes Dominic into beating her to the delight of the gypsy camp. Early on, Martin is careless with certain genre conventions almost to the point of comedy: Edgemont's title (Lord Nightwyck, heir to the Marquess of Gravenwold) overhints at the diabolical and Martin's description of Catherine as an atypical beauty--with ``eyes . . . a little too large and a little too green, and her lips were a little too full''--makes one wonder at the era's ideal. Although well-intentioned, Martin ( Captain's Bride ) also sometimes buys into stereotypes about gypsies. (Sept.)

    You must try it!

    I started this book because I wanted something to read for winter break, didn't have many expectations, but it was awesome! It is a jewel of a story, a must read for romance novel fanatics. The characters are interesting and likable, and the romance is sizzling!

    Uau! Couldn't put it down! I'm a huge fan from Kat Martin, but didn't like her last book in the against series so I was a little reluctant to read this one. I'm glad that I read it.The chemistry between the characters is amazing! I love all her historic books, this one I read almost in one day.
