When dealing with the devil it’s easy to be burned…
Who can find a virtuous woman… Beautiful, respectable, and dutiful, Lady Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley has long resigned herself to her decade-long loveless and childless marriage to a feckless husband…until his gambling pushes them to the brink of financial ruin.
Sometimes the devil is disguised as a gentleman… Viscount Ludovic, “The Devil DeVere”, is a man accustomed to taking what he wants according to his whim and heedless of the cost…until he encounters a woman who won’t be had at any price.
When dealing with the devil, it’s easy to be burned… when passion ignites the flames.
When Diana discovers a secret that shatters her life, she seeks aid and comfort in the devil DeVere’s arms. Will a night of heavenly passion damn them both forever?
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.
