Set in the turbulent times of 17th Century Scotland, The Duke's Bedeviled Bride finds our young lovers, Maggie and Robert, on opposite sides of the fence in regards to the definition of fidelity. Adding to the mounting tension in the family, Robert's brother, Hugh, who had been sent away by Robert so there would be no competition for Maggie's affections, is coming back from France with a new wife, who could pass as Maggie's sister.
Marital tension is one thing, but the threat of what is happening between the Covenators and the Catholics has become a real problem to the Duke, and he decides to go to London to seek an audience with the King. Will the separation make them stronger, or pull them apart?
I am lucky enough to be one of Ms. Mason's Beta readers, and I love this series. She has woven a passionate love story with pain staking historical detail, and I cannot wait for the third book.
Intelligent and intensely erotic, if you like your sex hot, and your history accurate, get this series
I loved this book, even more than the first!! There is twists and turns, plenty of hot sex scenes, and covers the relationship between Maggie and Robert as it grows and changes.
The amount of research that has been done for these books is amazing!!! From the religious conflict growing at the time to the way of life, all of the little things most do not think about are there in perfect detail.
Nina Mason has great writing style that flows so well and pulls you right into her world, for me both books have been books I could not put down.
There are so many things I'm bursting to tell but I cannot do spoilers!!! Pick these up! I know everyone thinks the 50 shade's books are great but these blow them out of the water!!!! They are MUST reads!!!! I cannot wait for the next book I must have more!!!! :)
By Nina Mason
In the second story of the duchy of Dunwoody, we find our beloved characters again and meet others, including the infamous Hugh. Nina again spins a story of steamy seduction, naughty master/mistress play, religious unrest, political ploys and through it all, a love story that is unrelenting. I was glad to see a glossary for those that may not understand certain period terms and the bonus of excerpts from the first book in case readers didn't go in order. Though this is a sequel it stands on its own feet as well. As expected, the story draws to a close yet this time the cliffhanger is much more obvious. I'm already awaiting book three. I was given this book in exchange for an honest opinion. All opinions are my own, facts can be checked by reading the book....which I recommend, as long as you like hot.
as this book moves on. The DUKE has some unusual taste in his sex life and our Maggie is growing to like them also. The book is very erotic but is a great love story . Maggie learns well and I love this couple together. The author has done her research and the book is very true to the times and as all her books VERY well written, the details are fascinating .It shows love can prevail anything I was glued to the story .I loved it 5 stars all the way.

Before any reveiw can even be contempated I must again tell you how much I appreciate the work that Nina puts in to her research. This is displayed not just in this book but in them all and each time I read work by her I am again overjoyed with the factual aspects.
With a beginning that introduces you to the varying heights of passion and life for Maggie and Robert you know instantly the tempo of the book. Within the first chapter alone you see passion, bravery, fear and love all combined in a spellbinding tapestry that points out the writers skill and the development of characters you already had the joy of falling in love with and are now further committed to.
Nina places importance not just on the well researched erotic practices but also describes to us the differences between the glitz of London society as opposed to the quiet of country living.
Speaking of the erotic passages, they are well thought out, well researched and fit fluidly into the tale woven.
With the introduction of Robert’s brother Hugh and his french bride we meet two moree characters who are explored in details which Nina is happily known for.
By the halfway point of the book your distaste towards the actions of the supposed ‘good’ brother, Hugh will leave you in disgust and yet I cannot help but be enthralled by the way the characters are so well thought out and portrayed.
The whole book focuses on a firm mixture of sex and punishment woven around the intricate love of both Maggie and Robert. The tale of the love between the newly weds is refreshing. Far from the ‘happy ever after’ this love portrays the realism of a real relationship, counting in arguments and distrust as well as the lighter feelings.
I’ll not spoil this story with details but allow me to tell you that the ending battles and further concerns for the couple leave you in a state of spellbinding anticipation for the next installment.
My overall opinion? Yes there is sex but seeing as how it is an erotic romance there was obviously going to be some. It is handled superbly with strong work having been placed in keeping it enjoyable to read and factually correct and informative. There is nothing offensive.
This installment also contains some upsetting scenes as Hugh’s deplorable actions against Maggie are told.
All in all this pleasurable tale is a definate reccomendation if you are interested in this genre. If you are easily offended by sexual natures then I wioiuld suggest that this erotic story is possibly not for you.
I would strongly reccomend this book and thank Nina for the pleasure of writing it for us all to enjoy
Now I have that warning out the way - WOW! What a twist in the tale - Roberts younger brother, and the man Maggie thought herself to be married to, returns to the Duchy - except he is not all we thought he to be.
A real page turner ... roll on book 3!
I thought that i had loved the first one but i was happily surprised to love this one even more !!!
From the start i cringed my teeth, laughed, doubted, and was on the hedge of my seat !!! In the first one i discovered a new kind of ''Sex'' in this one you learn that yes pleasurable beating can be erotic, but that it can also be a vengeful thing and maybe to your surprise (well to mine) find a liking in it..Maybe not an erotic one but a self satisfying one !!! I feld in love With Robert and Maggie in the first book, in this one my love just grew even stronger !!! Just can't wait for Book 3 to be Here !!
Nina's descriptions add so much to the story, they help you to become a part of this ongoing tale and feel the emotions of the characters-the good ones any way!
