Here's the blurb:

The tawdry tale of the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody continues…

Maggie Armstrong, the long-lost illegitimate daughter of the heir presumptive to the throne, is bedeviled by her husband's limited definition of fidelity. After observing him in a ménage à trois at the court of King Charles II, she is determined to bring him around to her way of thinking—by any means necessary.

Robert doesn’t mind being punished for his transgressions. Rather, he enjoys being whipped, especially by his beloved bride. Unfortunately, her heart might not belong to him alone. His younger brother, who he’d sent abroad to clear the way for himself, is coming home sooner than expected, and Maggie’s feelings for Hugh may not be as dead as her husband had hoped.

Both duke and duchess soon learn, to their peril, Hugh Armstrong is not the honorable man they’d been led to believe. Insanely jealous of his brother’s situation, Hugh will stop at nothing to strip Robert of all he holds dear—including his life.

But the real danger for Robert and Maggie is not the villainous Marquess, but the growing friction betwixt Catholics and Protestants in Restoration Era Great Britain.

Can their love survive the trials that await them?

I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
Searching for a pulse pounding romance that couple heat with historical intrigue? You need look no further than The Duke's Bedeviled Bride (The Royal Pains #2). This story picks up right where Devil In Duke's Clothing ended, with newlyweds Maggie and Robert starting out their married life by learning how to please... and punish each other. Will matters of court separate them or will a villain much closer to home rip the two lovers apart?
What I Loved: Mason has a real skill at balancing historical bawdiness that I really enjoyed with nail biting intrigue that kept me on the edge of my seat. The spark between Maggie and Robert is what truly shines in this story. The dialogue between the pair hints at the depth of their feelings for each other and their "intimate" scenes - wowzer.
What I Didn't Love: The story takes a dark little deviation that puts Maggie between a rock and a hard place.  No spoilers, but I was slightly uncomfortable with a scene or two.
Favorite Quote:
"He was her sustenance, her strength, her Rock of Gibraltar. When she kissed him this way, all the bad in the world faded away. There was only him. Only them. Only love."
Fans of historical fiction and fans of light BDSM are going to want to check out The Duke's Bedeviled Bride. You don't have to have read book one of The Royal Pains Series to enjoy this story but it does add more depth to Maggie and Robert's relationship.
Happy reading.
