Filled with espionage and intrigue, Stefanie Sloane’s witty and sexy debut is a Regency historical—the first novel in a back-to-back Regency Rogues trilogy that features seductive spies and the ladies they must protect.

Lord William Randall, the Duke of Clairemont, is a rake with little regard for society—a most unlikely suitor for Lady Lucinda Grey. But his latest assignment for the Young Corinthians, an elite spy organization, involves protecting her from a kidnapping plot. To do this, the notorious “Iron Will” must use his devilish charm to seduce Lucinda and convince her he’s worthy of her attention. William never planned to become enthralled by the lovely Lady Grey—or to lose his own heart in the bargain.

Beautiful and fiercely intelligent, Lucinda has managed to gracefully sidestep even the most persistent suitors. Until the Duke of Clairemont, that is. She’s tempted by his sinfully sensuous mouth and piercing eyes, and finds it hard to resist the champion thoroughbred he offers her in exchange for the honor of courting her. Can she keep him at arm’s length when his touch begs her to let him so much closer?

I really want to give this book a better rating because the plot was awesome. However, the serious lack of editting for the book was nauseating. It seemed on every page there was at least one typo or mistake, and I would have to figure out at times what it was supposed to say. I found that to be unprofessional. If you can look past that though it's a great story, and I will read the next one. Hopefully it won't be an issue.

*2012 RITA Regency award nomminee* The Devil in Disguise is a good read. Let me say that first thing. If you enjoy a mild Regency romance, this story will more than suffice. That said, there are problems. The book has typos. Not a lot of typos, but enough to be annoying. The story did not flow as well as it could have. I have a feeling segments of the story were "cut" out. Sometimes the modivation behind chacacters actions were not fully explained. The "set up" was not present for several important scenes. As a result, events left me asking, "Why did she do that?" and immediately reading the last chapter to see what I missed. Also, the whole thing with Almack's bothers me. I have come to consider Almack's a Regency Romance plot device. What happens at Almack's could have happened at any blue blood, elite ball. It was "Almack's" because I guess there had to be a trip to Almack's to show the characters were haute ton. Shrug. This book has some very-well-written sections, and some not-well-written (overwritten, perhaps) sections. Overall, the book is a fun summer read.
