Donna’s Review: The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan ByrneThe Duke with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan Byrne

Date Read: August 28, 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?

Overall Rating: 5.00

Kerrigan Byrne writes wonderfully complex books that leave the reader feeling every emotion – love, hate, sympathy, worry, anger, laughter, joy and wraps them all in a great read with a HEA.
Our hero was mistaken for another boy in prison, beaten and left for dead in a field. Lorelai noticed he was alive when her family carriage passed the field. They took him in and she cared for him as he got well. As he had no memory, she named him Ash. As they fall in love he hates her abusive brother, Mortimer, for his treatment of her, especially for causing her limp. Ash vows someday he will make him pay. When he is able, he finds a job, but her brother gets rid of him.
Twenty years later, Lorelai is being forced to marry an old man her brother owes money to. Her sister-in-law, Veronica, has also been badly treated by Mortimer. This is when Ash appears, and the story continues. No spoilers from me. This book is too good to ruin. I highly recommend it. It’s a keeper, as are all of Kerrigan’s books.
