The author does a fantastic job of keeping you on the edge of your seat as you follow Cora through her goal to find the man responsible for destroying her family. The fiery up and down relationship between Cora and Guy kept me cheering they would both be able to overcome the secrets and guilt from their past (and worries about the future) to finally be together.
If you love suspense and sizzling romance, you don't want to miss A Lady's Revenge!
When Cora was just ten years old, both of her parents were murdered. She has spent the last thirteen years thinking of a way to get revenge on the French man that murdered them. During the last three years she has been in France working as a spy seducing secrets from them. When her latest mission goes awry, she is captured and tortured by the man she believes to be behind the death of her parents. After weeks of torture she is saved by her old childhood friend Guy.
Guy has been sent to France to retrieve the spy Raven. Imagine his surprise when the woman he is sent to retrieve turns out to be the sister of his best friend. Guy can't believe his eyes and knows he has to do everything he can to save Cora. Once he frees Cora they escape back to England only to find out that her captor is on the loose and most likely after Cora.
Throughout the story Guy is constantly looking out for Cora and doing everything he can to keep her safe. Guy is everything I love in a hero. He's strong, intelligent and willing to do anything to save the woman he loves, and that woman is Cora deBeau. He puts himself on the line more than once and he is willing to do anything to help Cora. He knows she's scarred and wounded from her ordeal and he is willing to wait for her.
If I were ever put in Cora's situation I would definitely falter and hide myself in a corner and cry, but not Cora. Cora is constantly fighting for herself and her loved ones. She will do whatever it takes to keep them safe and I truly find her commendable. Watching Cora overcome everything and eventually find her way into Guy's arms was great to see. They both had such strong chemistry and the sparks between them literally jumped off the page.
After finishing this story I can't wait to see what's next from Tracey Devlyn. If all her books are as good as this one I know she will quickly become one of my favorites. This book is a must read.
The hero and heroine are essentially in love when the story begins but the author blends their pasts into the story-line quite beautifully without losing the reader. I was a little frustrated with the heroine's inability to trust those around her enough to make their own decisions about their lifestyles, but the author makes it very clear why the heroine is the way she is. She is constantly blaming herself for everything and anything that can and does harm her loved ones, as if those loved ones weren't adults and wholly responsible for their own decisions. I saw it as rather childish of her, but like I said, the author makes it very clear that the reason she's this way is because of the deaths of her parents and she just can't stand to lose anyone else close to her. She believes she will go insane if she loses another loved one, so she does everything possible to make sure it doesn't happen. In light of this, her childishness is easily forgiven on my part and at the end of the story, quite forgotten. The hero was totally awesome, kind of the same in that sense, but much more willing to see that she is capable of dealing with her own demons than she is willing to see that he is just as capable of dealing with his. I think both characters were very well written and quite complex. I love that the author seems to know these two characters very well and expresses that through each of the leading character's memories of each other. What can I saw, it's a great book. Definitely worth a chance. =)
