Praise for A Lady's Revenge "Devlyn makes a unique mark on the genre with her powerful prose and gripping theme."--RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars The Stakes Are High, The Players in Position... Catherine Ashcroft leads a quiet life caring for her precocious seven-year-old daughter, until a late-night visitor delivers a startling ultimatum. She will match wits with the enigmatic Earl of Somerton, and it's not just her heart that's in danger. Let the Games Begin... Spymaster Sebastian Danvers, Earl of Somerton, is famous for his cunning. Few can outwit him and even fewer dare challenge him-until now. After returning to his country estate, his no-nonsense neighbor turns her seductive wiles on him- but why would a respectable widow like Catherine risk scandal for a few passionate nights in his bed? "Devlyn reveals the darkness of the spy game and entices readers with a talented and determined heroine."--Publishers Weekly "Wildly romantic, quick paced, and entertaining from beginning to end."--The Book Girl "Dark and sexy...full of adventure and mystery but also a powerful love story...a must read."--My Book Addition Reviewsshow more

Review quote

"The novel was very fast-paced and there were some scenes in this book that had me on the edge of my seat. I strongly recommend reading "Checkmate, My Lord" for its steamy romance and thrilling espionage from a promising new author. 4.5 Stars, Reviewer Top Pick! " - Night Owl Reviewsshow more
