In her last month of pregnancy, Diana, Viscountess DeVere, has barely settled into her new life and role as “the devil” DeVere’s wife, when her increasingly restlesss husband receives an urgent summons to London. When Diana inadvertently discovers a message he received from a known courtesan with whom he was formerly linked, she fears her marriage is over before it has begun.
Review: Though I don’t read a lot of erotica, I look forward to each and every book that Victoria Vane writes. I have fallen deeply in lust with the Devil Devere and am thrilled that Diana has pretty much tamed him. She has been my favorite heroine so far, though Vesta and Phoebe each hold their own just fine.
In this tasty little vignette, Diana is more vulnerable than she’s ever been; Ludovic proves to be the caring husband I knew he could be, though he’s finding it hard to keep his hands off of his wife. I was happy to see Ned once again and surprise surprise, a long lost friend comes back!
Salime…oh how I wanted to dislike her, but you just can not. She’s an exquisite and intelligent woman who can outwit pretty much anyone. She comes in second as my favorite character in these obsessively addicting books.
Victoria Vane never fails to deliver. Whether it’s scorching sex scenes or tender romance, you will be in need of a fan and a cold shower.
Not to mention craving more.
