Reviewed By~Sarah L. Review Copy Provided By~Netgalley A Lady's Revenge starts off with a bang when Guy Trevelyan and Viscount Danforth, two British secret agents, are sent to France to rescue fellow secret agent Raven from the enemy's stronghold. In the beginning, I was captivated with the plot and turned each page eagerly. Unfortunately, that eagerness waned a bit in the middle as the story slowed down and my attention started to drift. The pace of the last third of the story did pick up again which allowed me to easily finish the book. One detail that confused me a bit was how inept Cora seemed to be. She is touted as being a highly revered spy but she couldn't keep herself from being kidnapped. Not just once but multiple times. Guy seemed to be a really all-around great guy. No pun intended I swear! He was strong and fierce with the enemy and loving and patient with Cora. He didn’t back down from a challenge when he worked hard to decipher the coded message, rescued Cora from being kidnapped each time and didn't give up on Cora when she was determined to put distance between them. With regard to the traitor sharing secrets and housing Valere, I feel if we had gotten to actually meet and know the traitor personally I would have had more of a "no way it can't be" reaction when the identity was revealed. There were also several questions left unanswered. Was Cora's father a traitor? What's the truth behind Specter's identity and what's his relationship with Somerton? Hopefully this book is the start of a multi-book series and we get to learn the answers to these burning questions.

This story takes place during a very volatile period in history, with spies and counter-spies and tons of intrigue. Add in a romance for the ages and you have one heck of a great read. I very rarely read a book twice, but I already know I will be reading this one again at some point. Wonderful, excellent, can't wait to read her next one!

I didn't know what to expect from this book after the first chapter. I was pleased and the story kept me guessing.

In the French and English wars from the 1770s until the French down fall in 1815 the English had a spy network in France.Two male English spies were sent to France to rescue in 1804 the spy known as the Raven before she could disclose the names of other spies in France. Of course there is a leak in the English network o be ferreted out.

This author does not know the difference between romance and smut.  If you are interested in reading about sex then this is a book you will enjoy.

This was such a great story. I am a sucker for anything with secret agents in it and this one was different than I am used to because it was set back in the 1800’s before there was all the fancy spy gear that they use now. The story flows so well there aren’t really any spots where you feel you can put it down and come back later. The characters had a lot of depth to them and you really felt that you knew them and were experiencing the same things they were (even in the stuff Valere made Cora suffer from). The storyline was different than I am used to since I do not read a lot of historical romantic/suspense. It was a welcomed change for me and I look forward to reading more in the future. Guy and Cora are so well matched for each other. Having grown up together as friends they had this comfortable way about them even when they were not in agreement about something. Cora loved Guy but was afraid that his reputation would suffer based on things she had done in her past. She respected him enough to try and let him go so he could find a more suitable wife. She is a strong, stubborn woman who did what she could to protect the ones she loves. Guy wasn’t having any of that. He wanted only her from the beginning and could care a less what society thought of his decisions. This battle of the wills was great to watch unfold throughout the story. Guy and Cora had this comfortable banter throughout their battle which was great fun to watch. As for other characters in the story, you could really tell that Cora loved her friends and family. She and her brother Ethan had a lot of respect and love for each other yet you could still tell they were brother and sister the way he picked on her. Dinks and Bingham were fun to watch. I would love to have a friend like Dinks. She is one of Cora’s servants and would go to any lengths to protect Cora – even from herself. This book has romance, mystery, suspense, humor and love all wrapped up in a wild ride of a story. I highly recommend it to anyone and look forward to more of Tracey’s books in the future!

I love Napoleon era spy romance and this one was really good. For a debut novel I was impressed wirh the plot and the character development. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time and I read 3-5 books a week. I loved it.

A LADY’S REVENGE by Tracey Devlyn is an exciting debut novel which is a dark historical suspense/romance. Ms. Devlyn has created not only a suspenseful story which is dark,sexy,full of adventure,passion,mystery,spies,torture,revenge,secrets,but is also a powerful love story. Cora deBeau,aka the Raven,is captured,tortured,and rescued by a French spy and her lover. Guy Trevelyan,a childhood friend of both Cora’s and her brother who are all operatives for the Crown. Relentless revenge for the deaths of her parents drives Cora to make mistakes,as those she loves are threatened. Guy is determined to stoke Cora until both of them burst into flames. A fast paced,action packed story from the first page until the last. I can hardly wait for the next installment. A not to miss historical romance with a few twists and turns as the characters try to navigate the mine field of betrayal,secrets and love in order to find a happy ending. “A Lady’s Revenge” is a must read for anyone who enjoys a mystery,suspense,dark secrets,a tortured heroine,and the man who loves her at all cost. I loved “A Lady’s Revenge”. I would highly recommend “A Lady’s Revenge”. Received for an honest review from Net Galley and the publisher.
