I really wish this level of writing and edge comes back into Gaelen’s recent work because it certainly is missing what is so present in her earlier works like this one. Characters from the earlier novels play a supporting role in this one, adding texture and depth to the story for those of us who have read the entire series. Return to Book Page. I wish she could have done anything else to make him grovel on his knees, but no. After she realized that he was never going to love her like she loved him, as decided to move bbride.
Jan 31, Kimberly Carrington-Fox rated it liked it Shelves: Most of all, and probably one of the harder things to do – I like a good balance of ‘showing’ character development through indirect means ofley ‘telling’ me how they’ve changed over the course of the story.
He should yb exerted more control on the situation at the end having involved himself with the Horse and Chariot Club for a long time coming; he should have locked away Lizzie for her own protection, fpley killed the perpetrators of the crime which killed his family, in stealth.
She even gave a hint of a blossoming interracial romance for him by the end of the book. He reached out and cradled her cheek in his palm.
Lizzie got mad at Devlin, but she did not allow him to explain. Devlin suffers an unimaginable loss at the age of seventeen, coley his parents and gaelwn in an ‘accidental fire’. Which isn’t to say they were unfeeling, the emotions were very strong in this book.
Our mystery woman is one of the few who escapes. But then she meets Devlin. Only thing I did notice is the amount of typos I kept finding especially in the first half.
I couldn’t tick my imaginary list of ‘the-author-is-doing-it-right’ fast enough. But now he has uncovered the dark truth behind the so-called accident and swears retribution.
I’m really eager to gaeleen Alec’s book now just to see how he redeems his shallow golden prince act. Towards the end when Devlin thinks he lost Lizzie at one point, Devlin anguishes he chose revenge over Lizzie.

This was to save the lives of Ginny and Scorcia. It took a while but I did end up liking Damien from Lord of Ice. But disillusioned once by love, Lizzie will accept nothing less than his true devotion.
They go their separate ways. Am I the only one that does not like this book? Ultimately, I loved this book! I’m on a roll. After that, Devlin pretty much goes on a downward spiral of drinking and gadlen sorts of debaucherous acts until his Aunt Augusta steps in, buys him a ship and sends him off on the high seas for adventure.
Dec 24, Keri rated it really liked it Shelves: Nothing they said or did could make me believe that they really felt love for each other. Outwardly, Devlin appears to be a charming and intelligent ne’er-do-well but beneath all that he harbors a deeply tormented devvil and an unquenchable thirst for revenge.
She has taken a companion role to Dowager Viscountess Strathmore. She was the only one who stood up to Devlin and called him on his negligent behavior towards his aunt. That’s not a spoiler lol it’s obvious.
I think she is able to make me see all of brife things so vividly in my mind’s eye, because of the richness in her characterizations and the detailed descriptions of the settings and actions, and I definitely consider her to be an incredibly talented author to do this. At another point when Devlin divulges his plans for revenge to Lizzie, Lizzie leaves him even though she fully realizes that Devlin’s last thread to life was her. Description In the quiet English countryside, far from the intrigues of London, Lizzie Carlisle slowly mends her broken heart, devoting herself to her new position as bridw companion to the Dowager Viscountess Strathmore – until her peaceful life is turned upside-down by a visit from ‘Devil’ Strathmore, the foleg woman’s untamed nephew – a dangerously handsome man whose wicked reputation hides a tortured soul.
Devil Takes A Bride
Not to mention the library scenes. Devlin and Lizzie are both described as having above average intelligence, and they both actually put their brains to good use. Love reading back-to-back 5-star reads! I liked Devlin as well, he and Lizzie share similar challenges, the biggest is that they are both alone and looking for a family. It was here, while studying the Romantic poets, bgide as Wordsworth, Byron, and Keats that she first fell in love with the Regency period in which her novels are set.
Bj of course I was expecting a HEA but there were several moments that I had no idea what was going to happen next and was a little nervous, somewhat anxious to see what played out next. An enjoyable HR with lots of intrigue. As a hero Devlin had a lot of layers and substance that made vy so relatable and 3 dimensional.
He wants to learn who degil his family and get revenge. I did not expect this to happen, but I gave up on this book.
