amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

Their love was always in the cards.

He should have thrown her out. But when club owner Alexander Lavoie catches a mysterious blonde counting cards at his vingt-et-un table, he’s more intrigued than angry. He has to see more of this beauty—in his club, in his office, in his bed. But first he’ll have to devise a proposition she can’t turn down.

Gossip said he was an assassin.

Common sense told her to stay away. But Angelique Archer was desperate, and Lavoie’s club offered a surefire way to make quick money—until she got caught. Instead of throwing her out though, the devil offers her a deal: come work for him. Refusing him means facing starvation, but with a man so sinfully handsome and fiercely protective, keeping things professional might prove impossible.

Hott Review:

Romance. Mystery. Comedy.

Between the Devil and the Duke is enthralling.

I absolutely adored this third book in Kelly Bowen’s A Season for Scandal series. I just hope it’s not the last. While I don’t love the detailed steam I have to admit skimming those few pages is totally worth being able to share an evening in Ms Bowen’s words.

I just can’t say enough about Between the Devil and the Duke. Honestly, Lady Angelique Archer is going down as one of my favorite characters ever. I totally loved her personality and had to frequently remind myself that she’s fictional!

Author Bio:

Kelly BowenKelly Bowen grew up in Manitoba, Canada. She worked her way through her teenage years as a back country trail guide and ranch hand. She attended the University of Manitoba and earned a Master of Science degree in veterinary physiology and endocrinology.

But it was Kelly’s infatuation with history and a weakness for a good love story that led her down the path of historical romance. When she is not writing, she seizes every opportunity to explore ruins and battlefields.

Currently, Kelly lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, all of whom are wonderfully patient with the writing process. Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.
