Product description

Product Description

Four years after a near fatal blunder uproots her from her home and inheritance, Anne Darvey, daughter of the Marquess of Esterleigh, finds herself an indentured servant on a farm near Fort Edward in New York, as the British army advances toward Albany. Driven by guilt over the pain she has caused her father and grief over her lover’s death, she sets out to deliver a message. The consequences lead to the discovery that all is not as it seems, and sets in motion events that lead to love and danger.

Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution, Courting the Devil is the second book in “The Serpent’s Tooth” trilogy, which follows Anne from her childhood in the rural English countryside, to London society, and into the center of the American Revolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Entertaining Read 22 February 2017
By JustLoveBooks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a nice entertaining read set during the tumultuous period of the American Revolution, where no one is truly safe from the danger that abounds, not even for a family staying in a quiet, rural area.

The central character in the story is Anne, who works as a servant for a Major. It is a place she has sought as a recluse from a troubled past, one that still creeps up from time to time into her thoughts. Specifically thoughts of her lover gone and of the troubles she has caused her family. Throughout the story, her strong willed nature is in full display, even as she had to endure further accusations against her. It is this that draws me to her as a very likeable lead.

I understand this is the second book of a trilogy, but the author has a nice writing style that makes the story easy to follow in itself. With that said, the ending was sort of a cliffhanger and readers will definitely be drawn to check out the third instalment as well.

As with most historical novels, it is important that the story meshes with the actual happening of history during that time. And to that, the author has done a fine job, portraying possible occurrences during that time. The plot was sound and there were even quite a number of "page turner" moments. A truly enjoyable read, and I would not hesitate to recommend this to others, especially those who like to read historical romances.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... is my second book by Kathy Fischer-Brown and I'm glad that I enjoyed it as much as "Winter Fire 30 June 2014

Copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Tours for an honest review
This is my second book by Kathy Fischer-Brown and I'm glad that I enjoyed it as much as "Winter Fire." Her writing is engaging and the story line flows. The heroine in this story, Anne Darvey, was a great character. The historical setting is the American Revolution and although this is the second book in the Trilogy I read it as a stand alone. I didn't feel that I missed out on any essential parts of the story. Although there are parts of Anne's story that are told in the first book, I essentially understood that Anne was sent to the U.S as an indentured servant despite the fact that she is the daughter of and English Lord. Anne is sent to live on a farm which is right in the middle of the conflicts that are facing the U.S during this time period. Anne is determined to find her lost love whom she was separated from previously. I loved Anne's bravery and her determination, although it was obvious that she was dealt some very unexpected turns in her life she never lost focused on her goal. I know that I would have benefited more form the story if I read all books in the trilogy that is why I will add the other two to my to-read list. If you're looking for a book that delivers a strong heroine, great history (American Revolution/ turmoil of the soldiers and the American Indians) this is a perfect read for you. I really enjoyed Fischer-Brown's writing and the entertaining plot she created. Great read and great adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting American Revolutionary Sequel 5 September 2012
By Juliet Waldron - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second part of the trilogy which begins with "Lord Esterleigh's Daughter." Anne has been kidnapped by her father's vengeful ex-wife and sent to America as an indentured servant. Here, Anne, mourning her lost lover, labors for a family of well-to-do settlers whose property is in upstate New York. The Revolutionary War has set the countryside aflame, and the farm lies in the path of General Johnny Burgoyne's army of brutal red-coat regulars, Germans and Indians. Anne has never stopped searching for the American best friend of her sweetheart and now she receives information which may lead to him. She intends to follow it, too, even though she must pass between opposing armies across a wild frontier. I liked this book even better than the first, perhaps because there were more kind, decent--even funny--characters than were in the aristocratic snake pit depicted in the first novel. The author's knowledge of this theater of the American Revolution is accurate; she knows the period well. Her characters are three-dimensional, proper 18th Century people in a well-researched setting, and all handled so professionally the reader is able to simply enjoy the ever evolving personal story. But be aware: there is another cliff-hanger ending. I'm hoping for an HEA for the 3rd book of this series, as I've grown quite fond of the ornery, proud Anne.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read 28 August 2013
By My Cozie Corner {Book Reviews} - Published on
In the second book of the trilogy "Courting the Devil", the author picks up where the first book leaves off. As in the first book, the characters are developed well and the action is non stop. With another cliffhanger at the end, I'm looking forward to what happens next. I do have to say that I really liked this book much better than the first as it move more smoothly and the characters were more likable. Recommended for all suspenseful historical romance fans.
