How does a bookish lady bring an arrogant lord to his knees?
Entice him to Scotland, strip him of titles and riches, and make him prove what sort of man he truly is.
Handsome, wealthy, and sublimely confident, Colin Gray, the new Earl of Egremoor, has vowed to unmask the rabble-rousing pamphleteer, Lady Justice, the thorn in England’s paw. And he’ll stop at nothing.
Smart, big-hearted, and passionately dedicated to her work, Lady Justice longs to teach her nemesis a lesson in humility. But her sister is missing, and a perilous journey with her archrival into unknown territory just might turn fierce enemies into lovers.
“The Earl is an enormously satisfying read on many levels. An exciting adventure and a sizzling romance all wrapped up in astute observation and social comment, this is historical romance at its best and it’s gone straight on to my keeper shelf.” (All About Romance)
“A smart hero, an even smarter heroine, and a fast-paced plot all keep the reader rushing through this excellent historical romance. […] A book that both stands alone and enhances her Devil’s Duke series. A dashing Regency romance that proves smarts are the sexiest attribute of all.” (Kirkus Reviews on The Earl)
“[…] humorous sparring and contentious courtship keep the plot on point and readers thoroughly mesmerized. A wealth of fascinating historical detail, elegant prose, and well-drawn, complex protagonists blend in a lively romantic adventure that will please the most persnickety of romance fans.” (Library Journal)
“Fast-paced and fun with a poignant storyline threaded in, this second installment in the Devil’s Duke series is certain to please historical romance readers.” (BookPage (“Top Pick”))

I preordered The Earl months ago and it’s been just hanging out on my Kindle since its release, waiting for me.
Colin Gray is one of my favorite historical romance heroes I’ve read in a long time. He’s strong and protective and just and loving and steadfast and honorable and VULNERABLE, which is such an underappreciated and underused character trait in a romantic lead. He was just so, so lovable.
