The Duke With the Dragon Tattoo

Victorian Rebels

Kerrigan Byrne knows adventure and she takes her readers along for a fascinating journey with this historical romance. The Rook and Lorelei seemed to be destined for one another and it was a definite joy watching the two of them come to terms with their relationship and just what it entailed. Meeting the main characters when they were young helped me form a bond with them as they formed their own bond. I absolutely hated Lorelei’s brother and her father as well my heart ached for the way she was treated. My heart also ached for The Rook, for the life he had and the past he couldn’t remember. The violence was fitting for the setting and the plot. I mean seriously this story has the added bonus of an actual pirate treasure hunt on top of the fact it’s already got a few mysteries. Plus you get romance and so much chemistry and connection between the leading couple that it alone would make the book worth reading and rereading. The supporting characters are a fascinating lot and I cannot wait to read the stories of them all. This is an historical romance that will leave you hanging by the edge of your seat and leave you with a goofy smile.

The Story: Lorelei has always had a soft spot for wounded strays and when she finds a young man on the verge of death she nurses him back to health and when he leaves he takes her heart with him. Now he has returned but is there a future for them after so much time has passed?

Book Blurb for The Duke With the Dragon Tattoo

The bravest of heroes. The brashest of rebels. The boldest of lovers. These are the men who risk their hearts and their souls—for the passionate women who dare to love them…

He is known only as The Rook. A man with no name, no past, no memories. He awakens in a mass grave, a magnificent dragon tattoo on his muscled forearm the sole clue to his mysterious origins. His only hope for survival—and salvation—lies in the deep, fiery eyes of the beautiful stranger who finds him. Who nurses him back to health. And who calms the restless demons in his soul…


Lorelei will never forget the night she rescued the broken dark angel in the woods, a devilishly handsome man who haunts her dreams to this day. Crippled as a child, she devoted herself to healing the poor tortured man. And when he left, he took a piece of her heart with him. Now, after all these years, The Rook has returned. Like a phantom, he sweeps back into her life and avenges those who wronged her. But can she trust a man who’s been branded a rebel, a thief, and a killer? And can she trust herself to resist him when he takes her in his arms?
