Overview


THE FIRES OF VENGEANCE
With her cascading raven curls and sleek, sinewy curves, Jocelyn Asbury is a woman any man would want. And Rayne Garrick, 4th Viscount Stoneleigh, wants Jocelyn...in his arms, and in his bed. He found her among a ragtag band of scamps and cutthroats—and saved her from a fate worse than death. But even as she yielded to him with a blazing hunger that matched his, she would soon betray him…in a night of shocking violence that would plunge them both into a world of treachery, danger, and all-consuming passion.

THE FLAMES OF DESIRE
From the teeming slums of London to its scandalous salons and dazzling ballrooms, from a vast estate on Hampstead Heath to the stone walls of Newgate Prison and a magnificent plantation on the shores of Jamaica, two lovers are about to embark on an unforgettable journey—one that is as dangerous as it is irresistible… in Sweet Vengeance.

“Magnificent reading and filled with hot and wonderful passion. Martin is superb!” —Romance Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Martin's ( Gypsy Lord ) steamy historical romance has the appeal of a ride at Disney World: though unbelievable, it is sometimes exhilarating. In 1807 Jocelyn Asbury affects a phony Cockney accent as a member of a London street gang. Her scholar father has torched their home and perished in the fire, and she blames this misfortune on Rayne Garrick, Viscount Stoneleigh. She disguises herself as a man and attempts to murder him, but rather than sending her to prison, he takes the beautiful young woman into his home to find out what she has against him. This leads to a deal whereby she will be his mistress in return for a fine house in the city and beautiful clothing. Garrick begins initiating his virginal concubine, but soon another attempt is made on his life. The accused Asbury chooses to board a prison ship bound for Jamaica rather than stand trial, and Garrick buys a coffee plantation there for her to work on. While historical background is generally well researched here, many details are unrealistic (e.g., the workers on Garrick's plantation all adore him, and when Garrick withdraws from an attack on Asbury she is grateful to him for not raping her) and the surprise ending is not credible. Doubleday Book Club alternate. (Sept.)

    A beautiful story.

    The more I read Kat Martin's books, the more I'm hooked with her writing. I love this story. Even after I read it twice, I still like it so much. Don't miss it.

    Is there such a word as "stupidest"? If not, there sh

    Is there such a word as "stupidest"? If not, there should be to cover the character of Jo.- Other than the obvious, I see no reason why Rayne should want to marry such an idiot - never mind, love her. Poor Rayne!!! and poor dump kids they may have had!
