4.0 out of 5 stars Another satisfying Boscastle romance, 7 Aug 2008

This review is from: The Sinful Nights of a Nobleman (Mass Market Paperback)
Devon Boscastle is one of the most elusive bachelors of the ton. He's also one of the most wicked and decadent. At a garden party in the country, he's determined to find an equally wicked lady for a midnight rendezvous.

By some stroke of fate instead he finds innocent Jocelyn Lydbury, who has come to the party in the hope of a proposal from a respectable gentleman. Being found in a compromising position was not in either of their plans.

Forced into marriage is not the best start for the pair but it soon becomes clear to Devon that his sweet, unassuming wife can also be a tempting seductress. And while he is determined to maintain his bachelor lifestyle, she is equally determined to win his heart.

This is the fifth book in the Boscastle family series this time focussing on the young, devilish Devon. Most of the characters from previous books do appear in this one yet there is no need to have read any of the previous Boscastle novels for this one to make sense.

I am very much a fan of the 'marriage of convenience that turns to love' storyline and this one did not disappoint. Devon is a devilish rascal who is the perfect hero as he lives his life of excess and debauchery. To see him brought down by love is amusing, romantic and oh so satisfying. Jocelyn is his perfect foil - an innocent miss with a backbone and sharp wit. I enjoyed reading about her and was happy to root for her in her pursuit of Devon's heart.

The book was enjoyably sensual and Devon and Jocelyn had some sparkling chemistry throughout the book. The mystery sub-plot isn't too mysterious but then it's the romance that we're supposed to focus on, so that's not really a problem.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable addition to the Boscastle series with endearing characters and some good, old-fashioned romance. If you're looking for a Regency romance to take your mind off things for a while then you can't go wrong with this book. 4 stars.

This review is from: The Sinful Nights of a Nobleman (Mass Market Paperback)
At a glamorous soiree in the romantic English countryside, Lord Devon Boscastle, one of the most elusive bachelors in London, is on the prowl for a willing and wicked lady to share a night of all-consuming sin. So he's delighted to accept a mysterious invitation for a midnight rendezvous.

Miss Joycelyn Lydbury, a demure yount debuntante, has her heart set on a marriage proposal from a certain respectable gentleman. Invited to a secret tryst, she hopes to finally meet her admirer........

This was better than I expected and well worth the read. I'm going to check out some of her other books in the Boscastle series. This one is book 5 and the first one in the series that I have read. I had no problem meeting the Boscastle family here!

3.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story, one of my Fave JH books!, 3 Oct 2011
This review is from: The Sinful Nights of a Nobleman (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the 5th book in the Boscastle series.

Devon Boscastle, the youngest of the Boscastle clan, has seen the rest of his family fall in love and get married, but has no desire to do so himself. The story begins with him trying to chase after a widower, hoping he will be her new lover. But he also bumps into Miss Jocelyn Lydbury, a young woman her father had hoped would marry him. But when the supposed match was going to take place years ago, Devon was nowhere to be found. When Jocelyn sees him still being the known rake he was years ago, she's rude to him and tries to forget him. She's long been hoping another suitor, Adam, would propose to her instead. But when a note asking her to meet her in a secret place arrives, she believes it's from Adam, and goes to meet him. However, she soon realises it's Devon there instead. Apparently he had the same note and believed it was from the widower. When they are caught in a compromising situation by her brother and father, they have no choice but to marry. Jocelyn knows no matter if Devon marries her or runs off, she's ruined. Devon makes it no secret he will accept his responsibility, but will still have private affairs, much to Jocelyn's dismay. Chloe Boscastle, Devon's sister, takes pity on her new sister in law, and tries to make her come out of her shell. Devon, notices that his new wife is alot more beautiful than he first thought, and gets jealous when other men start to chase her; something he hasn't counted on. When the truth about who sent the letters emerges, Jocelyn finds herself in trouble. Devon is angry. Realising he does love her, he goes to save his wife and finally declare his feelings.

Overall, the book is very good. I've longed to read about Devon the most, since I started to read the Boscastle series. For me, it just misses a perfect 5, as the ending seems a little rushed, but apart from that, I really enjoyed this book and am glad Devon's found someone who can tame him.

4/5
