Unfortunately, I had to stop reading this book half way through. My number one pet peeve is romance novels where the characters are already in love and have no issues to work out between them . By chapter two he's essentially professing his love.

I love a strong heroine but the author tried way too hard. The main character is trying to overcome a horrific rape and torture when the villain finds her immediately and the book falls into a rather repetitive cycle. When I stopped about half way through the book she had been attacked three times (each one more harmful psychologically) followed by the main characters hooking up, and then she is attacked again. It was just so unrealistic. When I read more action based romance novels I expect a deeper plot trying to figure out the villain instead of pointless action and sex scenes thrown together.

And seriously, (SPOILER ALERT) having the poor beaten down Cora befriend a cute little kitten whose neck is then graphically snapped during attack number three while trying to save her was it for me. I mean if you have to kill a kitten to really show how much the main character is beaten and overcoming you're trying too hard.

When I reached the acknowledgements at the back of the book and began to read that this is a debut novel, I was stunned. The novel read like the work of a seasoned author. I had completely forgotten that this was her first book. It was that well-written.

I loved everything about it. It had a great story line. One of the things I enjoyed the most was that the book not only encompassed a daring heroine, it included an intriguing cast of characters. There were Dinks and Bingham the Raven's loyal servants, whose constant humorous bickering back and forth, hid the underlying affection and love they felt for each other. Then, there was Jack, the manservant and his mite of a sister, Grace.

One of the intriguing aspects of this novel was it wasn't so much a romance, as it was adventure. And, the adventure wasn't just played out in one culminating moment; it had many twists and turns with surprise events throughout the book. I had no idea what dark, historical suspense was until I read A Lady's Revenge. There were secret spies, and kidnappings, fights and torture, and even humor. A Lady's Revenge quickly reminded me of why I love these books so much.

The book did have very dark parts and I found some of them difficult to read (my imagination took hold). I was in awe of Cara. She was a very strong woman and I loved her character. Imagine being a woman spy in the 1800s.

Devlyn has set the bar very high with A LADY'S REVENGE, and I am very interested to see how she tops this book with her next. For a debut author, she has definitely hit a home run!

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first historical romance I've read whose main focus is adventure, not the characters or the romance itself. While interesting, A Lady's Revenge reads like a modern movie in that it has one action scene after another--kidnapping, torture, fights, mayhem, more kidnapping, more fights, more mayhem, etc. While that may appeal to the tastes of many, I am somewhat disappointed in the lack of character development and, I suppose, what could be called "back story." Cora and Guy are interesting and fairly likable, the villain is truly heinous, and the sex scenes are toasty, but they seem secondary to the action. In this debut novel, Tracy Devlyn shows potential, but what I'd like to see is a novel whose characters work their way into the heart, making the reader want to follow them beyond the novel, a novel where the adventure complements the characters, not the other way around.
