    DescriptionDevil's Cub is one of Georgette Heyer's most famous and memorable novels, featuring a dashing and wild young nobleman and the gently bred young lady in whom he finally meets his match... Like father, like son... Dominic Alistair, Marquis of Vidal and fiery son of the notorious Duke of Avon, has established a rakish reputation that rivals his father's, living a life of excess and indulgence. Banished to the Continent after wounding his opponent in a duel, Vidal schemes to abduct the silly aristocrat bent on seducing him into marriage and make her his mistress instead. In his rush, however, he seems to have taken the wrong woman... A young lady of remarkable fortitude... Determined to save her sister from ruin, virtuous Mary Challoner intercepts the Marquis's advances and throws herself into his path, hoping Vidal will release her upon realizing his error. But as the two become irrevocably entangled, Mary's reputation and future lie in the hands of a devilish rake, who finds her more fascinating every day... WHAT READERS SAY: "This is my favorite Heyer... It has action, romance, and humor. I couldn't put it down." "A sequel to These Old Shades, being about the son of the Duke of Avon and Leonie... this is a must read for Heyer fans." "This is my fourth copy of this book.... I have worn out each of my previous copies to the point of falling apart." "Stylish, romantic, sharp and witty--her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing." Margaret Drabble "If you've never read Heyer's books before, prepare to be charmed. Or come rediscover her magic." Linda Howard "Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit." Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC "Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen." Publishers Weekly "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to." Katie Fforde

    Review quote
    "A very fun book that perfect for an afternoon of relaxation. " - Readaholic
    Flap copy
    The excesses of the young Marquis of Vidal are even wilder than his father's before him. Not for nothing is the reckless duelist and gamester called "the Devil's Cub."
