This review is from: Devil Takes a Bride (Knights Miscellany 5) (Paperback)
Having an English lit and History background I tend to enjoy reading Regency novels. Ms Foley is one of few writers who has managed to write superb romances with authentic and interesting heros/heroines while taking into consideration the richness,beauty and darkness of the times.
The duke first in the Knights Miiscellany series is a fabulous start and all the books that have followed have been spectacular full of intrigue and secrets, danger and suspense sensual love scenes ,touching and highly intense heros and heroines .Each and every book is unique, developing plots around various issues of the times. The Duke deals with vengence and handles the issue of rape so very well,which was so common at the time-the heroine a strong individual despite her circumstances does not give up on life and love.
One night of sin with the handsome rougue Alec Knight deals with the issue of gambling which was an obsession of the times the plot perfectly unravels with the bold and fearless Becky Ward his heroine and the love of his life.
They're all favourites and they ALL have a five star rating including Devil takes a Bride .
Dashing and Dark hero Devlin Kimball totally sexy and mysterious is out for vengence on the men who deliberately killed his family.Playing a dual persona he confuses society and Lizzie our Heroine in order to uncover the truth.In his role Foley uncovers the debauchery and the dark side of wealth ,power sexual interests of the times.Lizzie comes into her own story here -her presence in the earlier novels is defined as the untiltled companion of Lady Jacinda Knight and "adopted' member of the family.Lizzie is a strong- willed ,stable intelligent young lady ,who leaves the knight family ,to mend her broken heart from Alec Knights "rejection". She accepts a position as a lady's companion to the Dowager Viscountess Strathnmore.It is here that her peaceful life explodes when she meets the Dowagers wicked nephew ,Devil who takes them both on a journey of adventure ,revelations dark secrets and passion.
Brilliant ,fast , sensually breathtaking! Congratulations Ms Foley !
