Once burned twice shy… but when old flames come together…passion reignites…
When burned once… Arriving in London as her goddaughter’s chaperone, Baroness Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley wants to avoid her erstwhile lover at all costs.
Once nearly consumed by passion, four years has reduced the former inferno to bitterness and ashes.
By an old flame… A world-weary master of seduction, Ludovic “The Devil” DeVere is bored with his chosen life of debauchery.
When Diana’s charge disappears, she is forced to seek help from the devil’s lair, and their mutual desire reignites with undeniable ferocity.
Fire is best fought with fire… While DeVere is hell-bent to have her back for keeps, Diana is equally determined to bring him to his knees…by acquiring some sensual secrets of her own.
The Devil’s Match by Victoria Vane is the highly anticipated romance between Baroness Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley and Viscount Ludovic “Devil” DeVere. Four years after their ill-fated but incredibly passionate affair, Diana and Ludovic are still fighting their scorching hot attraction for one another. Is there any chance this couple can get past their anger and bitterness and find their happily ever after?
Lady Diana has grown into a much stronger and more self-confident woman throughout the course of The Devil DeVere series. She has finally come into her own and she refuses to settle for empty sexual encounters. Wanting to see what is behind his public facade, she pushes and probes DeVere until he finally reveals all his secrets. Diana is his equal, both sexually and intellectually, and with Ludovic, she finally embraces her long-denied desires.
There are so many layers to Ludovic and up until now, we have just seen a select few. Ludovic plays by his own rules and he is an honorable man who is kind, compassionate and willing to make sacrifices to protect those he cares about. In The Devil’s Match, we learn about his painful past, and we finally understand what turned him into such a cynical, debauched libertine.
The Devil’s Match is my favorite novel in this fabulous series. Victoria Vane’s writing is superb and the plot flows seamlessly. Rich and meticulous attention to detail bring the Georgian era vibrantly to life. The characters are beautifully developed; flawed and imperfect, but always realistic and engaging.
An absolutely delightful addition to The Devil DeVere series that fans of historical romances are sure to love.
