March 2, 2017
Barbara Devlin offers history, romance, and mystery all wrapped up in an engrossing story that is filled with witty repartee and ribald scenes that border on debauchery.
HER HEART BELONGS TO ANOTHER
Betrothed to a title, as opposed to a man, Lady Florence Beatrice Wilfred reconciles herself to an awkward union with a childhood friend. Haunted by tragedy, which ripped her true love from her arms, she is content to honor the agreement negotiated by her father. But her world is again turned upside down, when her one-time fiancé makes a sudden and stunning return to London society and states, in no uncertain terms, he wants her. Given his violent past, can she trust him?
HE WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET HER BACK
Known throughout the seafaring ranks as The Iron Corsair, Lord Barrington Nicholas Peregrine Howe, Marquess of Ravenwood, stands accused of a heinous crime he swears he did not commit. After years on the run, sailing the ocean as a ruthless pirate, a chance at redemption and a full pardon offers him the opportunity to clear his name and regain all he lost, including the woman he loves, but an unknown and dangerous enemy lurks in the shadows. Can Barrington find the villain before history repeats itself?
About Barbara Devlin:
USA Today bestselling, Amazon All-Star author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller, but it was a weeklong vacation to Bethany Beach, DE that forever changed her life. The little house her parents rented had a collection of books by Kathleen Woodiwiss, which exposed Barbara to the world of romance, and Shanna remains a personal favorite.
Barbara writes heartfelt historical romances that feature flawed heroes who may know how to seduce a woman but know nothing of marriage. And she prefers feisty but smart heroines who sometimes save the hero, before they find their happily ever after. Barbara earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric.
She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
