Editorial Reviews


**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 Author

In this third installment of the award-winning Devil DeVere series, DeVere is finally center stage when Ned, Annalee, and her cousin Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley arrive at DeVere's estate for a weekend of horseracing. 

The outward DeVere is an arrogant, ruthless, unpredictable, manipulative rogue who has no qualms about exploiting people for his own purposes. He's shrewd with his own code of honor and doesn't suffer fools gladly, but the private man is quite another creature--intensely loyal and fiercely protective of those few he actually cares about. 

Diana also maintains a false front to the world. Her marriage is a mockery and she feels unfulfilled and undesirable which makes her all too vulnerable to DeVere's dangerous charm. Although she sees no harm in a light flirtation, she certainly doesn't intend to be another notch on his bedpost. Nevertheless, she wonders what it would be like a have such a man as a lover. 

After events take an unexpected turn, Diana' most erotic fantasies become reality when she seeks comfort and affirmation in the devil's arms. But little does she know that the fire he ignites within her will burn long after she leaves Woodcote Park.

So far, this third installment in the Devil DeVere series is my favorite. It may be because the protagonist is finally DeVere himself, or that I got to see Diana as more than a bitter woman. Either way, all things considered, I loved The Devil You Know and I am eagerly writing this review so I can pick up book four and continue this story.

The Devil DeVere series is an erotic historical romance series filled with humor, debauchery, tricks, and zany antics. Each novella has been thoroughly entertaining and has provided background for The Devil You Know. Actually, it may be more accurate to say that The Devil You Know finally fills in the background that has been alluded to in the previous installments. In this novella, the story is transported back to when the Viscount DeVere and Diana first meet. Diana was still married, Ned was married to his first wife, and DeVere... well, he was still a womanizer. However, Diana manages to pique the Viscount's interest more than other women have before. When troubles rise and the dust settles, it seems that this pair's story is far from over.

I absolutely loved The Devil You Know, it has everything I look for in my historical romance reads; the hierarchy of the Ton, the "propriety" and fear of scandal, some smoking hot sexy scenes, and a simmering romance. Plus, each of these novellas has been simply fun to read. I have gotten to know the characters and understand them (to a point, DeVere's actions still boggle my mind at times). I am thankful that author Victoria Vane showed a different side to Diana. In the earlier novellas, she was not my favorite character. However, after reading her story, I really feel for her and find that she is my favorite heroine of the series.

Oh yes, its quite obvious this series is headed into the homestretch as this story both answered and created a lot of mystery in the main story thread that has been tying the series together. It is book three in the series, but chronologically it falls before book one because it takes the story back to the time hinted at in the first two books when the reader is given broad hints of a past history between DeVere and Diana involving the death of her husband and a clandestine passionate interlude. It tantalized me for so long and here, in this book, I finally got to the bottom of it.

In this installment, there is first the usual prologue, but this one is about a younger DeVere. The short piece is a splendid revelation into the making of the older, jaded version of DeVere. Then fast forward a few years. Diana, Edward, and Amalee (yes, sweet Amalee is alive and a delight to know in this her swan song story) are en route to enjoy the hospitality of Edward's friend Lord DeVere during the race meet. Diana's husband has gone on ahead of them with the race horse from their stable and her own mare that they are hoping to entice someone to use for stud. Diana has time to reflect on the reasons for her husband's absences from her side and is not blind to her empty marriage particularly when she has the evidence before her eyes of a loving marriage between her cousin and her husband.

On arrival, Diana is surprised by the appearance of DeVere and highly aroused though she pretends not to be by his immediate interest in her as a woman. But other matters start to distract her when she discovers that her husband never arrived though the horses and grooms did and when she discovers that a sour jealous woman who currently warms DeVere's bed looks on her as a rival.

"The Devil You Know" is novella #3 in this novella series and
its events take place prior to the events of novellas #1 and #2.

This can be read as a stand-alone novel.

How are the sex scenes?
Full of angst and very, very lustful.

How are the story lines?
They read like a full length novel, with one main plot and several smaller ones.

Diana is steadfast and strong, accepting her fate with quiet dignity and doing everything possible to save herself from ruin. Except for selling her body to DeVere.

"There is something you clearly do not yet understand, my lord. My virtue is neither for sale, nor for barter - under any circumstances."

Women can be subtly strong and firmly polite. Thank you, Ms. Vane, for proving it.

We also get to meet the lovely Annalee, Sir Edward's deceased wife in the first two novellas. It was sad to read her - and to like her - because I knew she would be dead before the year was out. But I enjoyed getting to know her. May she rest in peace.

Vane warns readers that "The Devil You Know" is darker than the first two stories. She is right, it's darker. Not so dark that you should pass it up, however. The "darkness" can be found in references to painful sodomy experiences and a description of cold blooded murder.

"The Devil You Know" is a bit disturbing, offering up the right amount of sinister to make it my favorite novel of the series.
