Early Review: The Duke With the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan Byrne

Aug 12, 2018

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?

 5 Stars

Superb! The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo embodies haunting notes of historical romances from another era alongside dark, enigmatic pirates vibrating with sexual intensity. The Rook will capture your heart as he endures an endless journey of betrayal. His pain and suffering is the price he will pay to find Lorelei, his salvation. Lorelei was never the same after he left her as a young woman. Now she finds herself face to face with the only person she ever felt a connection to. She will have to fight to find him, the man hidden beneath the pain. A unique and ravaged dragon tattoo holds the key to finding a lost treasure. Together The Rook and Lorelei will find the answers they seek. I feel as if I've stepped back in time, nostalgically having a taste of those first historical romances of my youth. Byrne delivers a romantic journeying with a well matched pair that is guaranteed to win your heart. I look forward to Byrne's next book.
