Angry at the deception but intrigued by Lizzie’s wit and candor, Devil tries to seduce the bluestocking, but he forces himself to leave when he realizes that he could fall in love with her. If I was in Lizzie’s place, I would have picked Dev too.

Lizzie was the companion to Jacinda and the woman who had been pining away for Alec Knight all of her life.

Couldn’t you have just broken into everyone’s houses and gone through things like a normal person? For his part, once Devlin got over his anger at Lizzie he started appreciate her finer qualities. So why abandon him?

I can’t help but admire their characters and how did they captured their hero. Devlin suffers an unimaginable loss at the age of seventeen. She was the only one who stood up to Devlin and called him on his negligent behavior towards his aunt. She gives Devlin everything he needs.

I appreciated that she wasn’t wooed by money and didn’t fall for the silly platitudes spouted by unrel I liked this book, but I doubt I’d ever reread it and I did think it too long. Devlin smiling at Lizzie’s antics.

After that, Devlin pretty much goes on a downward spiral of drinking and all sorts of debaucherous acts until his Aunt Augusta steps in, buys him a ship and sends him off on the high seas for takrs. It just did it for me. Want to Read saving…. It is a powerful book that is very moving in its realistic depiction of the gamut of human emotions.


I liked Devlin as well, he and Lizzie share similar challenges, the biggest is that they are both alone and looking rbide a family. And why did I finish it?!?! I hated that Scorcia ran back into the inn just because she heard a gunshot.

Honestly, I wanted to punch him in the face for all the cock blocking he does. Elizabeth Hoyt 3 Authors: In the quiet English countryside, far from the intrigues of London, Lizzie Carlisle slowly mends her broken heart, devoting herself to her new position as lady’s companion to the Dowager Viscountess Strathmore– until her peaceful life is turned upside down by a visit from “Devil” Strathmore, the old woman’s untamed nephew–a dangerously handsome man whose wicked reputation hides a tortured soul.

She was such a sweet girl, but had ovaries of steel! It isn’t often authors are risque enough to delve into the minds of their evil antagonists, and certainly not romance authors. Nothing of the sort. I read on and lo!

Devil Takes A Bride

I also felt that the two different story-lines, The love story and the revenge story, were not melded together well. Then again, I suppose if Devlin acted sensibly at the end using the cold fury brid effect a favorable outcome then the women characters wouldn’t have such a prevalent role at the end. They have a quick connection early in the story, but he returns to London on his quest of revenge, leaving Lizzie behind. The thing I enjoyed most about Dev is that his feelings for Lizzie, while robustly erotic, are always tinged with respect.


But now he has uncovered the dark truth behind the so-called accident and swears retribution. The gentle sparring that ensues between the two is amusing, and their tantalizingly brief bgide interludes will stoke readers’ hunger for more.

There were bridf cliches in this book alone to last me the year.

His masquerade is funded by his beloved and wealthy Aunt Augusta, the Dowager Ddevil. But then she meets Devlin. But disillusioned once by love, Lizzie will accept nothing less than his true devotion. So basically, Alec comes in right? The first time they meet each other, they hate one another, because she thinks he is just a rake bent on continuously piling gambling debts that his aunt’s money will pay off.

A bluestocking in her own right, who stands by her principles but has a compassionate generous kind gentle heart. Jan 31, Kimberly Carrington-Fox rated it liked it Shelves: Books by Gaelen Foley. It seems that it has not yet captured my interest.

I like plots with direction and characters with layers and conflicts that matter to the story as a whole. There’s not an original romance novel out there.
