#BookReview: How to Love a Duke in Ten Days (Devil You Know #1) by @Kerrigan_Byrne

Synopsis: These men are dark, bold, and brave. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees...

Famed and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane has always known how to look out for to herself. But nobody would ever expect that she has darkness in her past—one that she pays a blackmailer to keep buried. Now, with her family nearing bankruptcy, Alexandra strikes upon a solution: Get married to one of the empire’s most wealthy eligible bachelors. Even if he does have the reputation of a devil.


Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, is seeking revenge and the first step is securing a bride. Winning a lady’s hand is not so easy, however, for a man known as the Terror of Torcliff. Then, Alexandra enters his life like a bolt of lightning. When she proposes marriage, Piers knows that, like him, trouble haunts her footsteps. But her gentleness, sharp wit, independent nature, and incredible beauty awakens every fierce desire within him. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe in his arms.

My Review: I thought I was going to get a normal fluffy story about a girl and a guy that fall in love. But, what I read a much darker tale that worked out so well!! I could not put this one down.  The relationship was great and the story was very addictive! This was a story full of friendships, mystery, and more! If you love historical fiction check this one out!
