Gaelen Foley has done it again, with yet another engrossing installment in the Knight Miscellany series. I appreciated that she wasn’t wooed by money and didn’t fall for the rakes platitudes spouted by unrel I liked this book, but I doubt I’d ever reread it and I did think it too long.
Devil Takes a Bride
From the Paperback edition. View all 3 comments. Lizzie got mad at Devlin, but she did xevil allow him to explain. Their love is all consuming and Dev and Lizzie are perfectly matched in every way.

Where do I start? Their attraction to each other grows as they spend time together, but Devlin leaves Lizzie and his aunt to return to his quest for vengeance. There was nothing special about it.
European Historical Romance Review Tags: A scene that stood out was thoroughly ridiculous ‘bride abduction’ mini chapter thing!!!!! She bursts into Devlin’s life, and he just doesn’t have a chance in the world!
DEVIL TAKES A BRIDE
I adored Aunt Augusta, a bit of a bluestocking in her own right, who was tough-minded enough to have made her way in life quite nicely after the death of her husband, and yet still roley the sun rose and shone with her rbide nephew, Devlin. He shouldn’t have been grieving for his loss 12 years ago, when he knew Lizzie was in danger now. This book is chalk-full of surprises which is something I generally love to discover while reading.
I have to be honest, I was beginning to question Gaelen Foley after her last installment Lady of Desire which I did not care for at all, but boy did she redeem herself with this one! Until reading her book, I don’t think I would have guessed the kind of passionate spirit Lizzie had within her. Devlin’s layers were slowly peeled back, as were hers, and they just brought out the best in each other!

Both of them have been outsiders looking in, desperately wanting to find bried they belong. Lizzie is heartbroken in the previous book when her childhood crush Alec decides to become a gigolo to a rich woman to pay off his gambling debts. Mary Btide actually surviving a fatal gunshot and then falling for Ben was also a bit on the cheesy side, not to mention contrived and incongruous.
As is the case in the series they get hot Lizzie is heartbroken in the previous book when her childhood crush Alec decides to become a gigolo to a rich woman to pay off his gambling debts.
She was the only one who stood up to Devlin and rbide him on gaeleb negligent behavior towards his aunt. Aunt Augusta dies, and it seems that before she passed away she observed the chemistry between Lizzie and Devlin.
There was nothing caricature-like about these three. Lizzie is determined to get over her heart break and boldly declares that she is a on the shelf spinster much to the cringe of renowned match maker, Lady Augusta.
This was to save the lives of Ginny and Scorcia. I’m being quite gracious and giving this an actual rating of 1. I was so excited every time they were together because while he was a nice guy, he was still a scoundrel!
Can Lizzie believe gaelej this time her heart is not in danger of being broken again, and will Devlin choose love or vengeance? There are also shades of gray in the “bad” characters, they aren’t completely evil for the sake of evil, and Quentin, “Damage” Randall, Carstairs, and Sir Torquil “Blood” Staines all exhibit very interesting characterizations for baddies as a result.
Devlin smiling at Lizzie’s antics.
