Book Description

The Devil DeVere Series- Library Journal Best E-Book Romance 2012
**This is part two of Diana and DeVere's story that begins in THE DEVIL YOU KNOW**

The devil is the true tempter of women

In this fourth installment of the award-winning Devil DeVere series, Diana has come to London as her goddaughter's chaperone. Wanting to avoid her erstwhile lover at all costs, she nevertheless has no choice but to appeal to DeVere for help when Vesta mysteriously disappears. Although once nearly consumed by her passion for DeVere, four years has reduced the former inferno to bitterness and ashes.

Ludovic's time abroad has only served to deepen his debauchery. He's become jaded, world-weary, and bored. He also recognizes with self-annoyance that the marks of his discontent have only increased upon a certain person's arrival in London. When Diana makes her appearance in his den of iniquity in all of her glorious self-righteous fury, he suddenly feels alive again.

"Damn you to hell, DeVere!" she cried, jerking out of his hold. "Yes, I want you now, but I would despise myself for it the moment we finished."
"Why?" he asked, confounded.
"Why? Because I once confused passion for deeper feeling. I won't make that mistake again."
"But don't you remember how it was between us? I can bring you rapture. You know that. What harm is there?"
She scoffed, "Surely the same words the serpent whispered to Eve."

While DeVere is once more hell-bent to have Diana back in his bed, she will do whatever it takes to bring him to his knees.

Salime exhaled an exasperated sound. "What woman would not wish such a man? It is not you, but he who would soon be enslaved, heart and soul—prostrate at your feet! You are a fool to refuse what I freely offer, Khanum, so I waste no more of my precious time." She rose with jangling bracelets and tinkling bells and departed without another word, her giant eunuch trailing, and her words echoing a peal in Diana's head long after. It is he who would soon be enslaved, heart and soul—prostrate at your feet. (Mature content warning)

Editorial Reviews

Review

**Library Journal Best E-Book Romance 2012 (the Devil DeVere series)**
"The Devil DeVere series is a variation of the Rake's Progress, or the Rake's Reformation, except that is doesn't start with said Rake as the main character. A device that was amazingly clever on Vane's part and allowed her to circle in on DeVere without revealing too much initially. ..The series is erotic and sexy and sometimes the reader wants to shake various characters until their teeth rattle, but it is absolutely marvelous. This one should be read with bonbons. And a fan!" - Marlene Harris for Library Journal

"I've come to count on Victoria Vane to deliver delightful, erotic romantic escapes. But this book signals a new turn in the Devil DeVere series, and it has now become an addiction for me... Suffice it to say, this is a sensational, sultry read with a complicated plot that will tantalize and seduce any readers of the Devil DeVereseries. While it might be an entertaining read for  newcomers, the rewards to starting this series from the very beginning are too many to mention--and the enticements of the next new release will surely have you coming back for more!" - The Romance Reviews

"I've been hooked from the beginning, like with no other series I've ever read. It's filled with mystery, mischief, adventure, romance and oh yes, sex that will leave you gasping for breath as you soak up each page of this sensual, romantic experience."  -Night Owl Reviews

 "If you still haven't fallen in love with DeVere, now you'll surrender yourself. I'm getting addicted to Victoria's writing, it's like a drug."  - Reading Romances

From the Inside Flap

DeVere's gaze narrowed. "Why so concerned for my brother? One might think you have feelings for Hew."
"What if I did?" she retorted. "It's no business of yours! Besides, your abominable machinations have already destroyed any potential of that."
DeVere rose and came to her, perching himself on the arm of the settle. "My honorable and straitlaced brother could never satisfy a woman like you, Diana. He could never plumb the depths of your passion...unlock your secret desires."
His voice was low and seductive, and the flickering blue fire in his eyes heated her insides. Diana fiercely tamped down the smoldering sensation that threatened to reignite feelings she'd struggled to suppress.  
"And what would you know of my wants and desires after four years?"
"A great deal." He gave her a slow, confident smile. "Given that I was the one to unleash them."
Diana averted her face with a bitter laugh. "Thus you presume to have an exclusive claim to me?"
"Has any other exerted one?" he asked softly. He reached out a hand and traced a long, manicured finger along her jaw. "You are still unwed, Diana. Have you taken another lover in my absence?"
"It is none of your business whether I have or not, and you are grossly impertinent to ask."
He laughed long and low. "I think I have my answer."
She glared at him, and thus they remained, silently challenging one another for an interminable beat. Then suddenly his mouth was on hers, taking, possessing, as if it was indeed, his singular privilege.
Diana leaned into him, teasing his lower lip with her tongue and sucking it eagerly into her mouth before sinking her teeth into it. Hard. Savoring the coppery taste of his blood.
"What the hell!" DeVere jerked back with a cry. He touched his lip and examined the crimson stain on his fingertip, his expression a mix of outrage and bemusement.
"You took without invitation,"Diana said. "It was a warning not to do so again."

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit graphic May 7, 2014
By VT
Format:Kindle Edition
The storyline was good, however, it should be read in order with the sister book. I personally found the descriptions of the love scenes too graphic for my tastes. In some instances I skipped them altogether and enjoyed the book just as much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Solid Finish to DeVere and Diana's Story September 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! Oh, was I supposed to say more? Ah, well! Let's see-
Diana and DeVere together was combustible caliente. I have been waiting for the final match and conclusion to their story since book one of the series. The story arc built and built with mystery and intensity through the last book to finally explode in a very erotic battle of wits to determine who would call the shots for what kind of relationship they were to have. Was it to be DeVere who only sought to sate his lust and explore this unique feeling that he only had with Diana so he could get her out of his system? Or was it to be Diana who knew what she had with DeVere, but had been left with a shattered heart that she has no desire to offer him to crush all over again?

The story opens with the return of Captain Hew and Vesta to declare they intend to marry. Diana, Ned, Phoebe and DeVere are all involved in the happy couple's marriage arrangements. But the real passion smoldering under the surface is that of DeVere and Diana. They both have a real push-pull thing going on for different reasons and this leads to many scenes where it is a real contest of wills. My favorite scene was the horse race that held an intriguing bet attached to it. I was really hoping for a certain end result and got it.

The next part of the story is so sensual. Diana wants to bring DeVere to his knees so she decides to take a Turkish beauty trained in the erotic arts up on her offer of instruction. And whoo-boy did she score high marks with her first opportunity to show what she had learned.

The final segment begs to ask the fifty dollar question. Will they or won't they? Will they get together or will DeVere's hang-ups be too much?

Now, I really loved this second part and ending story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devere doesn't stop! May 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have enjoyed reading the Devere series. What I really enjoy is that each story can stand alone.

This is the fourth book in the series. Diana and Devere had an affair in the previous story, In this story, Diana accompanies her goddaughter, Vesta to London. Vesta's father, Ned, and his new bride are driving Diana and Vesta crazy and they had to get out of there. It is almost coming-out season in London, so that is why the ladies are coming.

Diana and Vesta were only allowed to come to London with the understanding that Devere would be their protector. Diana wants nothing to do with him, so avoids him at all costs. Vesta is a young lady who knows what she wants when she sees it, and she wants Devere's brother, Hew.

Diana is also showing Hew attention which causes Vesta to think desperate times call for desperate measures, so she enlists the help of her godfather, Devere, to get the attentions of his brother and take the attention off Diana. Vesta kidnaps Hew, holding him hostage on a boat, and somehow, the craziness works! He ends up falling in love with her.

They end up having a wedding ceremony. At the reception, it is expected for Diana and Devere to dance together. The closeness together rekindles the heat they feel with each other. As much as she tries to fight it, with his pursuit, she can’t help but give in!
This book made me laugh out loud at some of the craziness, and I absolutely loved it!

Nanee's Review:

I read this series starting with number 5 for my blog review and it was the newest one and I'm a sucker for historical romances but I have to say when I went back and started from book one I enjoyed all of these books. They are all witty, sexy, intriguing and the twists and turns spin your head. Love Devere and Diana together, they both want and need each other and their passion is out of control. But neither will give up their control. I rooted for Diana from the beginning I knew she would be a good match to Devere and who better then to bring him to his knees. Even though Devere is well Devere I always wanted him happy and tamed ...lol...yeh tamed is a good thing for him. Very sexy and hot hot hot. 4.5 stars review by Nanee at upallnightreadallday.blogspot.com

4.0 out of 5 stars White Hot Read December 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is number three in the Devil DeVere series but actually takes place four years before book one. The Devil You Know opens 15 years before the events of book one and two and shows the hero in the tale, Viscount Ludovic DeVere being cast aside for a peer of the ton with a higher ranking by the woman he intended to marry. We soon learn that this event shapes Vic into the Devil we know.

Barroness Diana has come to see a horse race with her husband and family. We quickly learn that Diana is in not only a loveless marriage, but one filled with lies and secrets. When she finds out that her husband has left them in dire straits, she must make a deal with the Devil himself.

From the first meeting between Vic and Diana, their chemistry sets the page on fire. Her response says it all; "Without having uttered a word beyond her name, the portentous weight of an indecent proposition hung between them." The interchange between the two is delightful while he struggles with disposing of an unwanted guest and she struggles with her desires and how they affect her vows.

While Vic makes his desire known, Diana is determined to remain faithful to her marriage all the while fighting her curiosity for this devilish man. She over hears two rather interesting conversations which lead her down a path she never expected to go, and is far more sensual and erotic then she ever imagined.

This book was an interesting read for me. We learn a little bit about what makes the devil the way he is, and we see the passion that is hinted in the previous book. Edward, from the previous books, and he now dead wife are supportive players while Vic and Diana's husband play the villains. I really enjoyed the banter between the two protagonists, and the gossiping between the women.
