In 1816 after the poisoned milk killed her son¿s puppy, widow Princess Callie, knowing her offspring was the intended victim, flees with her seven years old child, Zindaria Crown Prince Nicky to England planning to hide in the home of her retired governess. She and the child make it to the English shore with little hope of going much further. The second son an Earl, war veteran formerly of the Fourteenth Light Dragoon Gabriel Renfrew, happens to be riding at breakneck speed when he spots the woman and her offspring. Gabriel provides shelter to Callie and her son although he knows she is hiding much from him. When an assassin tries to kill them, Gabriel protects them. He offers her marriage as he can truly keep mother and child safe. As she considers his proposal, she fears for her heart as she has fallen in love for that matter so has Gabriel, no longer a daredevil as he has someone to live for, but a throne stands in their way. --- The first Devil Riders¿ historical romance is an action-packed Regency thriller starring two strong protagonists and contains just enough suspense to hook the readers into wondering what comes next. Callie¿s prime objective is to keep Nicky safe while Gabe no longer cares suffering from posttraumatic syndrome caused by his war experience. Their forbidden love makes for a charming tale as Gabe turns from a 24/7 devil rider into a 24/7 loving protecting husband-father. Fans already know that Anne Gracie writes ¿Perfect¿ early nineteenth century romances. --- Harriet Klausner

While this book shares some troupes with other Gracie books (knight in shining armor, big dog, even a the beach), it is really lovely how  the Hero loves the Heroine and how we see the heroine grow up in terms of knowing love is risk.  I do wish the secondary romance had been resolved a bit more and there was a little bit more following the last chapter but I suppose the next book will have that. If you are a Gracie fan this book delivers.  If you like, these themes, this book has them!
