"Martin's ... story is delightful and her character insights astute ... Martin also deftly manages the sometimes tricky task of injecting humor without compromising her characters or making them jokey."
Publishers Weekly
 
"Kat Martin will bedazzle readers with another wondrous, action-packed and sensual Regency-set romance. Skillfully spinning an enticing, spellbinding tale that brims over with passion and adventures, she sears the reader's heart once again."—Romantic Times
 

“Kat Martin is a premier historical romance author…and Devil’s Prize enhances her first-class reputation.” —Affaire de Coeur

The heroine however was a bit too senseless to fully like.
Abbys
I would have finished this in less than 2 days, but my husband made me go to bed at our normal time even though I had less than 20 pages left.
Amazon Customer
I love all of Kat Martin's books, I just wish she could write them faster so we could have more to read.

Kat Martin is one of my favorite authors. She always knows how to weave unique and heart quenching stories, that is why I have read a lot of her works. I have also enjoyed every single one of them except for this unfortunate one. As you have read in the above Editorial Review's, the plot does have potentials. The beginning of this book was actually 'pulling' and quite interesting. Damien was also an intriguing hero. Aside from his rakish reputation, he lived a dangerous life and has many secrets. I enjoyed the way he seduces Alexa. I love his charms and the way he carry himself. The heroine however was a bit too senseless to fully like. I mean, in the beginning, she was very likable. Alexa is a very beautiful heiress. Many nobleman doted on her yet she doesn't let that get to her head. She is spunky, rebellious and supposedly intelligent and witty. Hmmm... so i don't understand how and why she ended up doing the most oafish acts. The first time she manage to get herself and Damien in trouble, I actually slammed-SHUT the book. Mind you, I do like frustrating twisters but what she did was just totally dumb and OUT OF PLACE. I decided to give the book another try the next day. Who knows she might make up for that foolishness. YEA, RIGHT~! I agree with one reviewer here who said that Alexa definitely have no sense of the danger she puts herself and her husband in. I understand she is young and a bit impulsive but my gosh, how can someone simply blurt out a serious accusation about ones husband, someone who supposedly she was already half in love with. How can someone blab-out confidential informations and to a stranger, no less! Oh, of which I might add that she doesn't even have a proper proof or first hand knowledge of the informations and accusation she was blabbering about.Read more ›

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really, really wanted to give Devil's Prize a 3 or higher. I was really anticipating reading Rayne's (Sweet Vengeance) sister's story. Alexandra/Alex/Alexa seemed very headstrong, if not intelligent in Sweet Vengeance. So, why when she gets her own story in Devil's Prize, does she act like a complete ninny?
The plot of this book is fueled by revenge. Damien Falon seeks Alexa out to avenge the death of his brother Peter. He believes that Peter's unrequited love for Alexa is what caused his death. After "winning" a night with Alexa, Damien compromises her, but he ends up married to her instead. Later on, Damien realizes that Alexa was not responsible for his brother's death, as he assumed, but by then he has laid a horrible ground for mistrust between his young bride and himself.
Alexa is impetuous in this book. Whether she is doing this to hide her grief at Peter's death or Ms. Martin is showing us through Alexa's actions how immature the heroine is, we may never know. I felt that Alexa's immaturity and mistrust is what caused Damien and she a lot of heartache and pain throughout the book.
We find out early that Alexa isn't responsible for Peter's death (although the "real" reason he died isn't revealed until the epilogue), and Damien tries to make amends. Still, she holds onto this mistrust, while claiming to fall in love with Damien. Her mistrust leads her to believe that her husband is a spy for the French, and, again, we see how her mistrust for Damien leads him into peril, danger, and harm. It seems like every time she struggled with her "love" for Damien, she ends up doing something stupid to contradict that.
I wanted the story of Alexa and Damien to work. There are some explosive and passionate love scenes in the book.

Alexa has no sense of the danger that she is getting herself and her husband into, with her constant questioning of his integrity and naive and untrained efforts to spy for the English. I finally couldn't take her anymore and dumped the book; give me a smarter heroine than this one every time! The sex is hot, but you probably already guessed that.

Move over Rosemary Rogers, to me this was a Steve and Ginny story and very well done indeed. One of my all time favorite couples were the tortured Steve and Ginny. They loved each other deeply but managed to have difficulties with trust, but were so passionate when they were together. Damiena and Alexa were exactly the same. They really truly loved each other. Yes, of course it was lust at first. Often lust comes first and then the couple gets to know one another and lust becomes love. Damien went after Alexa for all the wrong reasons. But what was so remarkable is he forgave her right away when he realized he was just totally wrong about her. And he set out to make the best of things, which was difficult do to, with his history. He really had no business taking a wife, but he did and he really did love Alexa deeply. It showed over and over again because he was willing to forgive some of her actions, understanding so much about how it is difficult to trust. And it is so important to understand how young Alexa was. How is such a young person able to really understand spying for ones country and how impossible a life like that can be. She just went on instinct and honor and at first she had it all wrong about Damien. But when he finally was honest with her it was still a challenge to believe. But over and over again this couple would put themselves into peril for each other and it was just so romantic and real. I cannot say enough about this book. I love to find books like this that you can truly get into such an emotional roller coaster ride of a story with lots of passion. And this was five stars and more!! I guess if you want your characters totally black and white with no shades of grey then perhaps Damien and Alexa are not your couple but to me they were what romance novels are all about!!
