Publisher's Summary

The first in an exciting new series by USA Today best seller Kerrigan Byrne!

These men are dark, bold, and brave. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees....

Famed and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane has always known how to look out for to herself. But nobody would ever expect that she has darkness in her past - one that she pays a blackmailer to keep buried. Now, with her family nearing bankruptcy, Alexandra strikes upon a solution: Get married to one of the empire’s most wealthy eligible bachelors. Even if he does have the reputation of a devil. 

Love takes no prisoners

Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, is seeking revenge and the first step is securing a bride. Winning a lady’s hand is not so easy, however, for a man known as the Terror of Torcliff. Then, Alexandra enters his life like a bolt of lightning. When she proposes marriage, Piers knows that, like him, trouble haunts her footsteps. But her gentleness, sharp wit, independent nature, and incredible beauty awakens every fierce desire within him. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe in his arms. 

“Romantic, lush, and suspenseful.” (New York Times best-selling author Suzanne Enoch)

Fantastic

I am new to this author/narrator, but what a wonderful start. The story was perfect, real and well developed. The H/H are two lost souls that find each other and become better for their relationship. They both change and evolve, which is the most interesting aspect of the novel. I love when this happens in a natural and realistic way.
Both the main characters are smart and dynamic. They express real emotional trauma and have the standard human feeling of doubt, shame for past actions and hope for the future, but especially the idea that love , regardless of how damaged you are, can be achieved.
The heroine's traumatic past is very well written . she is not one of these perfect (beautiful, smart, spunky) heroine's that just bug me, as no one can be that perfect. She has flaws and is very complex. The same for the hero, no perfection there..he even chastises himself for being too self-absorbed (wow)! This could be the story of any couple trying to develop a relationship under real circumstances.
The mystery/suspense of the plot is exciting and you never guess until the end. This is a blend of all the great things you want in a novel and I can't express how much I enjoyed it. I would recommend it highly.
The narrator was very good and provided such a great performance, I kept forgetting that it was a male narrator doing the female voices. I thought I did not previously like Mr. Perkins narration, but I was wrong. I am going to be looking for him in the future. I am a new fan.

Love Kerrigan Byrne

I pre-ordered this Audible book, because I absolutely loved Kerrigan’s Victorian Rebels Series.
This book did not disappoint, full of grit, tragedy and love! I highly recommend this as your next romance book.

I loved this story

I enjoyed this book from the being to end. I must preface this review by saying after listening to the Victorian Rebel series I was prepared for Ms. Kerrigan's style, I preordered this book knowing that if nothing else the plot would be interesting
I was not disappointed. I was hooked from the beginning.
Alexandra's story was heartbreaking from the beginning. However with strength and remarkable courage she faced her fears. I have to admit that I wish she had told Piers from the start what was going on... but then we would not had the enjoyment of learning how he came to understand Alexandra and the profound pain and shame that a women feles after being violated sexually. It was very difficult for me to get through the prologue and I believe most listeners would agree on this point.
I don't think the identity of the blackmailer was too obvious and there is an interesting twist that I am sure most listeners will enjoy.
This book was neither too long or too short but was just right. The narrator was good and the storyline compelling
This book is certainly worth a credit.

Another Masterpiece from Ms Byrne and D. Perkins!

A woman with a past is thrown into the arms of a Duke in need of a wife.

Piers to Alexandra, final chapters:

“I cannot, will not allow you out of my sight into a world where you might be taken from me. You don’t know what it will cost me Alexandra. To love you like this, it consumes me, it obsesses me. You’ve somehow, in less than a bloody fortnight become more integral to my sustenance than the very air I breathe or the water I drink. All I’m asking is for you to have mercy on me wife. If there is a battle to fight, a villain to face, I beg you to allow me the honor because the cruelest thing you could do is to sentence me to a world without you in it. Promise me damn it.”

SWOON

Can't wait to hear the rest of the Red Rogues stories!
