Devil's Prize

Jane Jackson/Devil’s Prize/Robert Hale/ISBN 978-0-7090-8480-8/hardback/224 pages/ £18.99

Devlin Varcoe is a notorious smuggler, wanted by the Excisemen but too clever to get caught. Tamara Gillis is in love with him, but even though she is willing to give herself to him in love, Devlin will not commit to her or any other woman. He helps Jenefer Trevanion when she is left homeless, but it is only after his brother Thomas has betrayed him and he is faced with death that Devlin begins to know what he truly wants out of life.

This is a bold adventure story about smugglers, unrequited love and betrayal. Well written and compelling it holds the reader to the end.
4.5 red roses. Morna
