This is a great historical romance and a very fast, easy read.

I really loved the two main characters but the story also included some fun and interesting secondary characters that made the story even more interesting.

I really loved reading this book by Patricia Rice as I did the first one in the "The Rebellious Sons" series "The Wicked Wyckerly."

This is my first book by this author, but it won't be my last. We definitely started off on the right foot. As soon as I started reading, I was hooked. I smiled my way through the book and finished it wishing I had an easier time finding books that pleased me as much as this one did.

I was completely gone for both of the main characters. They were both so interesting and just plain likable. They both needed what marriage to each other would bring, and it was refreshing to see a Marriage of Convenience storyline where both parties were matter of fact and accepting of the limitations of such a union. There was no angst, no regretful moping...ah, bliss. It was just two practical people developing a friendship and slowly falling in love.

The humor here was great. The situations were laugh out loud, without straying toward being over the top. The heroine, Jocelyn, is usually at the center of the debacles, and the unexpecting hero, Blake, is left to try and keep up.

"I've met her only the once, when we visited Lady Bell a few months back. She seems a pleasant sort."

"She shot me in the foot and stole an obscene parrot!"

It's not that Jocelyn tries to be outrageous, she is just willing to do whatever it takes to take care of the people that she feels responsible for. If that means stealing a bird, well, a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

I adored Jocelyn. She was always reading people, ready to turn the situation to her advantage. Blake was the total opposite. He was bluntly honest, to the point of rudeness.

The Devilish Montague by Patricia Rice
Historical Romance - July 5th, 2011
4 Stars

The Devilish Montague is the second novel in Patricia Rice's new rebellious sons series which started with the first book, The Wicked Wyckerly.

The Devilish Montague is the story of Blake Montague who wants nothing more than to return to the war on the continent and help fight the French by using his excellent skills at decoding French communications. Unfortunately, being a penniless younger son he has no hopes to achieve his goal unless he marries a rich lady who can provide him with the funds he needs. He soon meets Jocelyn Carrington who seems to be exactly what he needs but who has her own reasons to consider making a deal with Blake.

Jocelyn wants nothing more than to find a stable home for her and her family. By marrying Black she how has the chance to regain her family's estate which her despicable elder brother lost in a wager to Blake's father.

Blake and Jocelyn are very enjoyable and compelling to read. I liked how both of these character had goals and dreams for themselves and were willing to work to achieve them. Their desires and dreams brought a new level of interest to the characters and makes this reader want them to find and achieve a happy ending together. I really loved the two main characters but the story also included some fun and interesting secondary characters that made the story even more interesting.

The Devilish Montague is a great story of two people who are trying to find their hearts' desire and end up finding happiness very unexpectedly.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jocelyn Byrd-Carrington didn't want to marry and give up her freedom after finally freeing herself from the shackles of her wretched family. She wanted the home her dastardly elder brother lost gambling. Except the only way for Jocelyn to get her family's estate back is by marrying the very man who now holds the deed to her family's dwelling.

The thing Blake Montague desired most was his army colors, not a wife. Without funds, the only way for Blake to buy his colors was to marry for money. And then Jocelyn makes him an offer he cannot refuse. What begins as a marriage of convenience turns into the security Jocelyn has always craved, the home Blake never knew he wanted, and a love to last a lifetime.

The second installment in her Rebellious Sons series, Rice creates a compelling cast of characters filled with emotional depth and an intriguing story readers will not soon forget. A rollicking, fast paced read bursting with hilarity. I could not put the book down until the last page! Patricia Rice has added another enticing, enthralling story to her already impressive repertoire.

The Devilish Montague by Patricia Rice

4 out of 5 (B)

"After years as a bachelor, he was not prepared for married life resembling the chaos of war. Perhaps he should acquire a cannon."

Jocelyn Carrington may have the luck of being able to marry whoever she chooses since she came into her inheritance but that doesn't make up for the fact that she must get married to secure a stable house for her mother and brother. As a woman to live alone, even with her family, would be unacceptable to society. After loosing her Father six years before and being thrown out of all of her half siblings homes Jocelyn bears the weight of her eccentric family members especially her youngest brother Richard who only seems to be at ease around his parrots. To save all that she holds dear Jocelyn must enter into a marriage that will allow her to keep a roof over her family's head even if it means giving up her yearly allowance to her future husband.

As the youngest of three sons Blake Montague has few employment options and even less money to acquire the one that he wants. To buy his colors and rejoin the war against Napoleon he must find a wife with a healthy allowance and find her fast. On top of everything else Blake's family believes he is part of a family curse that will leave him dead by the age of thirty and is pushing for him to find a wife, forget the war and beat the curse. One night at a party Blake meet a young woman with a healthy allowance of one thousand pounds a year and who also is looking for a marriage of convince and not love. They both need something the other can provide and start to plan how to help each other get what they need.
