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 story is as frothy, rambunctious and classist as the rest of Heyer, but more enjoyable than some.

How did I forget to review this??? This is one of my favorite Heyer books (and a high contender for favorite of all time), with multiple rereads under its belt.Devil's Cub is the story of the wild and reckless Vidal, an unromantic figure of romance who has absolutely no sense of restraint whatsoever...
