Welcome to my post for the Devilish Mr. Danvers book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as an excerpt and a giveaway for a digital bundle including the Wallflower Wedding series. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Release date: April 21, 2015
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: Rakes of Fallow Hall #2

For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She’s inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her. No one will ever lock her up again or attempt to take away what’s hers. No one except Rafe Danvers—the charming, fiendish man from Fallow Hall. He’s determined to claim Greyson Park, but if Hedley isn’t careful, he’ll claim her heart as well.

Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs, once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley Sinclair—the younger sister of his former fiancĂ©e—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can’t seem to stop seducing her. Even worse, he can’t help falling in love with her.



My Rating: 4 Roses

A sweet read, The Devilish Mr. Danvers was a lovely romance and I enjoyed it.

I liked both of the main characters. Hedley had been through a lot on account of her awful mtoher and sister but she refused to let them keep her down. Rafe was irritatingly oblivious at first but, once he realized how much he cared for Hedley, he did everything he could to protect her.

The romance was great. After a shaky start, Hedley and Rafe proved to be a well matched couple and I liked them together.

The story moved quickly and I enjoyed myself all the way through. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.

*I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Excerpt:

Used to relying on herself, Hedley lifted one of the shawls from her shoulders and draped it over her hair. Tying it at her neck like a little old woman, she made her way through the house and outside by way of the kitchen. A steady drizzle greeted her. Sort of. The truth was, the rain felt more like tiny, frozen shards of glass. Already, the hard clay path to the woodpile was slick, covered with a fine sheen of ice. The soles of her shoes slid over the crackling ground, and fog as thick as pillow stuffing obscured her view of the shrubs, trees and outbuildings. She didn’t mind that, however. Not having a glimpse of the carriage house suited her nerves. Just thinking of it, in fact, sent an icy shudder through her, making her grateful that she lived apart from those who knew her shameful secret. A dog howled, startling her away from her thoughts. The nearness of the mournful bay stole the breath from her body. She only hoped the animal was friendly.
