Diana Douglas currently lives in sunny Arizona with her husband, Dan and a miniature Schnauzer named Cookie. Formerly a graphic designer, she now puts all her efforts into writing. Her first two novels, The Bewitching Hour and The Devil's Own Luck, are Regency Romances and she will soon add The Tattooed Angel, a time-travel, and Kept Secrets, a supernatural historical to her list of published novels. She's a founding member and assistant organizer for the Arizona Novel Writer's Workshop and a member of the Arizona Chapter of the Historical Novel Society. An avid reader--she rarely goes anywhere without her Kindle or Smartphone—her favorite genres are historical fiction, historical romance, legal dramas, thrillers and mysteries. She spends most of her days writing, usually with Cookie sitting in her lap and a bag of gummy worms and cup of coffee at her side. She'd love to hear from you.

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.)

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.

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. :)

OK, so now I know that the handsome, super rich, faithful, bad boy with a heart of gold I've been looking for actually exists....in The Devil's Own Luck, I knew it was too good to be true.

Even though I usually don't read romances, this one caught my interest and kept me reading. As opposed to most stories in which the happy ending means a wedding or at least an engagement, this story starts with a wedding.

Cecelia and Rand are forced to marry after a very steamy night in a shed. They have known each other all their lives since their families were very close. Rand was always carefree in his life and relationships and Cecelia was always headstrong and not afraid of anything while at the same time bred to be a proper English Lady. Now they are married and Rand inherits a title that brings him more responsibility than joy.

Rand's past keeps popping up in their married life in ways that are funny like with his wards, sometimes malicious like the gossip Cecelia hears, and sometimes dangerous like the things Rand did during time of the war with Napoleon.

And the love scenes were very steamy and frequent, making me wish I was Cecelia!

An enjoyable story with an attractive hero. My main dislike of the storyline was the ignorance of the heroine. I realize she was young and supposedly unaware of her beauty, but I do think she would have known when a man was behaving in an inappropriate manner. I am not young or beautiful and I know that! But it was a good story over all and I would recommend it.

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.
