Okay, romances are my guilty pleasure, but some of them are pretty dumb. This one's really smart. It's witty, lots going on, and the plot actually makes sense. I love it when the hero is not perfect but the heroine brings out the best in him, and that's what this book delivers. Lord Clarendon is attractive, sexy, rich, smart, and at first, a reluctant titled lord and husband. Lady Cecilia is an eighteen-year-old spitfire, a perfect match for a man who had decided long ago that he didn't want a wife. André, a former French spy with a vendetta against our hero, throws their lives in turmoil when he comes to England to have his revenge. The plot moves along nicely, but still takes time to set time and place. I highly recommend it.

I thought this book was well-written, but the story itself didn't hold my interest. I found myself skimming several pages at a time and had to force myself to keep reading. I just didn't feel a connection to Rand or Cecelia and to be honest their whole relationship bored me for the most part. I'm not suggesting that others might not like it, but it just wasn't my kind of romance. (Also, there were some typos, but nothing too serious.)

3 1/2 stars...I wish we could do half stars on Amazon but since we can't I will have to round up. I enjoyed the story and the characters. But I didn't really feel that there was much depth to them. The hero and heroine had some nice steamy love scenes; which I always enjoy. lol I thought the ending was a little rushed and I would have liked an epilogue.

Usually books that have editing problems don't really bother me. But I noticed quite a few in this one. At one point a whole paragraph was repeated twice.

I was satisfied with the this story just not overly so...but it was still a nice way to pass the day. :)

I liked the story. The characters were interesting, and well defined. My only problem with the book was that some of the words were omitted, and some of the sentences were repeated. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a romance.

After loving Ms. Douglas's first regency, The Bewitching Hour, I had to read her second. I wasn't surprised when I found myself loving this romance just as much as the first. I'm a big fan when supporting characters from the first novel make their way to the spotlight and we get to hear their story. Ms. Douglas did an excellent job with the tasteful and classy love scenes, and made sure we were always kept guessing what would happen next between the two newlyweds. I also have to say that Ms. Douglas knows the regency period quite well; her dialogue is so spot on that I felt like I was there! I won't give away any more details or spoilers, but I do want to recommend this regency romance to everyone who enjoys this genre. Fantastic!

The Devil's Own Luck tells the story of Thomas Randolph Danfield (Rand) and Lady Cecelia Stratton. This regency romance caught my interest from the start and never let go. Rand and Cecelia grew up together, Rand being her brother's best friend. Back then she was a `brat', but now, at eighteen, she is a woman.

The story of their love affair and eventual marriage is a wonderful one. From trying to get know each other once again to learning to trust each other, the story evolves. Starting when Rand thinks he may be in love to when he eventually tells Cecelia that he does, the plot takes us through their ups and downs. The back story is also one that allows the reader to see more and more about who these people really are.

Diana Douglas once again has come up with a winner. Whether you like regency romance, or if you're like me and had never heard of it before, I am sure you'll enjoy this book.
