The bravest of heroes. The brashest of rebels. The boldest of lovers. These are the men who risk their hearts and their souls—for the passionate women who dare to love them…
He is known only as The Rook. A man with no name, no past, no memories. He awakens in a mass grave, a magnificent dragon tattoo on his muscled forearm the sole clue to his mysterious origins. His only hope for survival—and salvation—lies in the deep, fiery eyes of the beautiful stranger who finds him. Who nurses him back to health. And who calms the restless demons in his soul.
A LEGENDARY LOVE
Lorelei will never forget the night she rescued the broken dark angel in the woods, a devilishly handsome man who haunts her dreams to this day. Crippled as a child, she devoted herself to healing the poor tortured man. And when he left, he took a piece of her heart with him. Now, after all these years, The Rook has returned. Like a phantom, he sweeps back into her life and avenges those who wronged her. But can she trust a man who’s been branded a rebel, a thief, and a killer? And can she trust herself to resist him when he takes her in his arms?
As most of you know already, I’m trying to broaden my horizons when it comes to romance books. I’ve almost always avoided Regency Romance books but lately I’ve seen the light and realized how amazing they can be. And wow, this one was AMAZING!!!!!!!!
I’m not even sure how to explain all the things I loved about this book without giving away anything away or even giving it the justice it deserves…. This may be a short review but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t run out and read this book as soon as you finish reading this review, or don’t finish it, just go and read this book!
Now, when I first started reading I didn’t realize it was part of a series and that made things a little difficult at times because there are so many moving parts and, you know, I hadn’t read the first 5 books. My lack of knowledge didn’t hinder my reading it just made me want to read the other 5 books immediately!!!
The Rook- just wow. He is one of those book boyfriends that will take you forever to get over. I highlighted so much of the dialogue between him and Lorelei. They’re banter is what dreams are made of!
Lorelei is the woman that all women inspire to be like. She is sweet, kind, strong, and fierce all rolled into one fantastic woman. I could not get over how much she and the Rook persevered. I’m truly in awe of these two characters and their stories.
The entire book made me laugh and made my heart ache at the same time. I’m a sucker for a good second chance story but this one really was memorable. This is probably one of the absolutely best second chance romances I have ever read- ever! I could not put this book down. I was completely enthralled with the story from the very first page. Lorelei and the Rook’s story is just so heart-meltingly beautiful. I laughed, I swooned, I sighed!
The Duke with the Dragon tattoo is just so well written and so in depth. The story, the details, the everything! Seriously, read this book. Now. Right now!!!!! I mean, how can you not love a sexy pirate who comes roaring in from the high seas!?!
