Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Dominic Edgemont's reputation in late Georgian British society is rather tarnished: aside from rumors of womanizing, he's said to be part gypsy--a rumor that Catherine Barrington, Countess of Arondale, discovers to be true after she is kidnapped by scheming relatives, passed from hand to hand and finally bought by Dominic who is visiting the gypsy band where he was raised. A clash of wills follows as Dominic tries to seduce Catherine out of the virginity she has so far managed to preserve; as fate would have it, the two, not surprisingly, fall in love and he succeeds. Martin's tale is a good one with some reservations, one being an unnecessary scene in which Catherine provokes Dominic into beating her to the delight of the gypsy camp. Early on, Martin is careless with certain genre conventions almost to the point of comedy: Edgemont's title (Lord Nightwyck, heir to the Marquess of Gravenwold) overhints at the diabolical and Martin's description of Catherine as an atypical beauty--with "eyes . . . a little too large and a little too green, and her lips were a little too full"--makes one wonder at the era's ideal. Although well-intentioned, Martin ( Captain's Bride ) also sometimes buys into stereotypes about gypsies.

This is the first book by Kat Martin I have read and it is certainly not the last!
Elena Monteros
Catherine and Dominic are both head strong, stubborn, but also very passionate and very much in love.

The love scenes in this book are wonderfully hot and yet also very tender and loving.

I began reading romance novels almost two years ago. I have always been a voracious reader and shunned romance writing - assuming it would be all formula and no real story. Gypsy Lord was one of the first romance books I read and it greatly influenced my decision to begin reading romance novels seriously. Since then, I have discovered a wonderful array of excellent romance writers and have enjoyed this genre tremendously. Recently I picked up Gypsy Lord again to see if it still seemed that same rich and sexy story I recalled. I was not disappointed. It was as great on this second read as I had remembered it.

Dominic Edgemont, the Marquess of Gravenwold, is half English and half gypsy. His mother had raised him in the gypsy camps of France until his noble English father claimed him at the age of eleven. Since that time, most of Dominic's life had been spent at his father's English estate or in English schools. Dominic hated this new English existence and hated his father for deserting his mother. Although Dominic was still allowed to see his mother, the visits were infrequent and short. Gradually he had come to accept the English way of life. Although he was his father's bastard, Dominic was his heir to a vast fortune and estate. He is considered a dark, intriguing man among London society. It is rumored that he may have some gypsy heritage but he is still considered a most desirable man. Dominic rarely attends functions of the ton but is always a source of great speculation when he does. The ladies, always hoping to get a look at the mysterious, handsome man, wished Dominic would honor them with his attention. Dominic, however, seldom noticed any lady and remained an enigmatic and fascinating personage.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a book about a tortured hero and a heroine worthy of him, and his salvation from his own dark side.

Dominic is an illegitimate child. He was born to a Gypsy mother and rejected by his father. He spent his first 13 years roaming with his mother's caravan, until his father came to collect him on the death of his legitimate heir. Dominic is subject to stereotypes and prejudices from both sides. The Gypsies never completely accept him because of his Gadjo blood, and the English mistreat him in his youth because of his Gypsy blood, and are attracted to his mysteriousness as an adult.

Dominic made a yearly visit to his mother, and traveled with the caravan. This was to be his last visit, as his father was very ill and he would be taking over the responibilites of the Marquesiate. He meets Catherine upon arriving at the Gypsy camp. She is proudly defying her "owner," as he begins to beat her. Dominic is loath to involve himself and bring more scorn from the Gypsies, but his English blood hates to see the beauty being beaten. He decides to buy her for himself.

Catherine was a countess in her own right. Her father had arranged for her, his ownly child, to inherit his Earldom. She is kidnapped shortly after her debut and sold into slavery with the Gypsies.

Neither Catherine, nor Dominic reveal their true identities back in England. Dominic giving Catherine time to recover from her mistreatment during her stay with Gypsies decides to seduce her slowly. *SPOILER* he continues to vist his Gypsy lover while letting Catherine accomodate herself to the idea.

The love scenes in this book are wonderfully hot and yet also very tender and loving. Both the hero and the heroine really want to please the other. Catherine is a strong heroine who finds herself with Gypsies and she soon discovers that even though she is a countess she likes being just an average person just as much, especially when she is bought by the hero, Dominic. He is half English and half Gypsy and is having a very hard time fitting in in either world. He is fighting his feelings of love for Catherine and his feelings of hate for his father. I actually found him very vunerable and endering.
I am looking forward to reading the Next book "Sweet Vengeance" because I think its about Dominic's best friend.

Dominic and Catherine heat up this book with sparks, adventure and such passion I could not stop reading it until I finished. I loved the fact Rayne had a little part in this book from "Sweet Vengeance" although I read his story before this one. If you're looking for a hero and heroine who make you laugh and impress you with their love. Then here it is! I highly recommend all of Kat Martin's books!

I loved this book. I have read many romance novels and this is one of the best I have ever read.
Dominic was a perfect tortured hero - tall, dark, handsome, with a troubled past. I liked it that he didn't just wake up one morning and decide that his reasons for not wanting an heir were pointless, but had to work things out, think about them and slowly let them go. It is just so much more realistic. Besides, no matter what he did, he was never cruel, stubborn or annoying - well, except for the time when he told Catherine that he is going to bed a tavern wench - but he came back soon and apologized, and that was actually my favorite part of the book.
Catherine was a wonderful heroine. She was determined, but not stubborn or arrogant. She fought for what she wanted. I loved her!
I liked it that there were no `big misunderstandings' - I hate stories where everything could be resolved if the main characters simply got together and talked a bit. And I also liked it that they knew each other for some time before falling in love or anything. And I liked it that they could actually resist making love for some time - there are too many books where the heroes simply can't stop themselves or think at all when they share a simple kiss.
All in all, this is a wonderful book and I recommend it with all my heart! This is the first book by Kat Martin I have read and it is certainly not the last! I can't wait to read some more of her books and I hope they will be as good as this one.
