Nothing they said or did could make me believe that they really felt love for each other. Love would complicate Devil’s plan to seek revenge against the aristocratic rogues who murdered his family 12 years earlier.
Nevertheless, I liked this one. But she never felt like she fit in, a feeling I understand too well.
Perfect, casting am I right? A scene that stood out was thoroughly ridiculous ‘bride abduction’ mini chapter thing!!!!! Meanwhile he meets Lizzie.
I’m on a roll. She knew she wanted and was in true love with Devlin!
DEVIL TAKES A BRIDE
As a companion to elderly Lady Augusta Strathmore, Lizzie pens a note to Devil implying that his lonely aunt is near death in order to get the notorious rake to visit. I liked the setting of the story, the era.
Number of sex scenes: Both Lizzie and Devlin come with baggage from their past, but after friendship turns to passion which turns to love, both are able to settle the demons of their past and take a chance at love and happily ever after.
The actual marriage never does happen, at least not until the epilogue. I have to say that in those earlier books in the series, I had really liked Lizzie with Alec. I cannot tell you how utterly refreshing this is, and it made me respect both the characters and the author a whole lot more. I don’t even know where to begin.
Overall, the story wasn’t too bad. I don’t know any two characters more perfect for gaelenn other. She continued to keep him on his toes throughout the book, not letting him be a worthless dandy.
Until reading her book, I don’t think I would have guessed the kind of passionate spirit Lizzie had within her.
While reading one of her books I will move from disgust to disbelief to resignation to pleasure to frustration and more.

That’s always a positive for me. I go for door number 2 every time, unless the questioning would be done when the person was tied to a chair, that’d make sense then. Where do I even begin?
Gaelen actually gives them POV’s and dives into their headd and almost has readers sympathizing with them at certain points. Even though Lizzie never felt like more than the ward she was or maybe a poor relation, they were all she had and they loved her.
Love reading back-to-back 5-star reads! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
A Journal Of My Reviews: Devil Takes a Bride, by Gaelen Foley 
My biggest gripe briide with the plot element which pitted Devlin’s revenge at odds with his love for Lizzie. And I love and I mean love Devlin. I counted 5 times within the span of three pages.
Jan 15, Courtney rated it did not like it Shelves: More by Gaelen Foley. After Devlin is gone, neither one of them can quit thinking about the other. The OverDrive Read format of this ebook has professional narration that plays while you read in your browser.
With Lizzie gone, I would move forward with the revenge-in-blood plan at once and in haste, especially since he knows Lizzie is in danger.
Devil Takes A Bride
In this entertaining, if somewhat melodramatic, tale, Foley manages to do what few authors have—write a truly sensual romance, possessing depth of plot and character, that isn’t overburdened by sex scenes. She was such a sweet girl, but had ovaries of steel! I appreciated that she wasn’t wooed by money and didn’t fall for the silly platitudes spouted by unreliable men. She has, however, succeeded in doing that for me so far. After Lizzie learns of the bills Devlin’s Aunt Augusta pays on Devlin’s dissolute behalf, Lizzie resolves to teach Devlin a lesson, someone she’s never met.
She was the shy bookish companion that I secretly related to but didn’t know enough about to out right love. There were too many other things happening that overshadowed the romance for me: Let’s just say that I wished she could have shot him in the balls instead of being turned on by a middle-of-the-night kidnapping.
Their story, the trials they go through separately and together and the wonderful all-consuming love they taked for each other.
