Devil's Cub is one of Georgette Heyer's most famous and memorable novels, featuring a dashing and wild young nobleman and the gently bred young lady in whom he finally meets his match?

Like father, like son?
Dominic Alistair, Marquis of Vidal and fiery son of the notorious Duke of Avon, has established a rakish reputation that rivals his father's, living a life of excess and indulgence. Banished to the Continent after wounding his opponent in a duel, Vidal schemes to abduct the silly aristocrat bent on seducing him into marriage and make her his mistress instead. In his rush, however, he seems to have taken the wrong woman?

A young lady of remarkable fortitude?
Determined to save her sister from ruin, virtuous Mary Challoner intercepts the Marquis's advances and throws herself into his path, hoping Vidal will release her upon realizing his error. But as the two become irrevocably entangled, Mary's reputation and future lie in the hands of a devilish rake, who finds her more fascinating every day?


"This is my favorite Heyer? It has action, romance, and humor. I couldn't put it down."

"A sequel to These Old Shades, being about the son of the Duke of Avon and Leonie? this is a must read for Heyer fans."

Margaret Drabble

"If you've never read Heyer's books before, prepare to be charmed. Or come rediscover her magic."

"Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit."
Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

"Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen."

    Love the Alastair Family

    This is the perfect sequel to These Old Shades, taking place around 1780. Period detail, rich character development and beautiful writing make this work a lovely read. Heyer recreates a bygone era filled with engaging characters in amusing and touching situations. Dominic and Mary are a wonderful couple and while their romance has a difficult start the courtship is full of excitement, with help from their friends. It is also a treat to see Avon and Leonie, as well as Dominic's uncle Rupert (all of whom we met in These Old Shades). I do recommend you read Devil's Cub second.
