Love’s Revenge isn’t the worst book I’ve ever read in the past year but it’s one of the least credible...The book concludes with an epilogue replete with miraculous fertility, near-death, and declarations of delirious devotion. None of which are remotely believable.

Synopsis

A reverse May/December romance that will take you by surprise with a heroine who's strong and independent pitted against a hero that's as sexy, mature, powerful and alpha as they come.

Quentin Blackwell, Earl of Devlyn,refused to marry a woman carrying another man’s child. So when he refused to marry the promiscuous youngest daughter of Baron Townsend, the man financially ruined Devlyn. But when Sophie Hamilton, the man’s eldest daughter, comes to Devlyn with an unexpected offer, Devlyn seizes the chance for vengeance. What he didn't bargain on was how revenge could cost him the one thing he wants the most. Sophie’s love.

All her life, Sophie’s tried to earn her father’s love to no avail. Even her one chance for happiness was crushed beneath his tyrannical thumb as he convinced her only suitor to marry her youngest sister who'd gotten in a family way with the stable boy. Left firmly on the shelf at forty-one, Sophie accepts her fate as a spinster until she impulsively uses her father’s criminal activities to escape a life of servitude and right a wrong at the same time. She never really expected the Devil of Devlyn to actually accept her rash proposal, and she certainly hadn't planned on falling in love with a younger man.

...smoking hot love scenes and pithy dialogue between Devlyn and Sophia. Even as they circle each other like a couple of spitting cats, the desire between them sizzles, flourishes, and explodes.” — Fallen Angel Reviews – Recommend Read


“…the attraction and chemistry between Quentin and Sophie is electric; the pages vibrate with it. From the very first page to the last, Ms. Burns keeps me on the edge of my seat devouring every word. Each encounter was ripe with tension and in some cases, explosive love scenes that were phenomenal to read.” — Romance Junkies – 5 Blue Ribbons


…The sex scenes are scorching, but the love between her hero and heroine is better.” — RTBOOKReviews – 4 Stars“


“…LOVE’S REVENGE is the perfect recipe for a nice long evening of reading. This story shines in every sense of the word.” — Romance Readers at Heart
