From the Inside Flap
"Celebrated storyteller Gaelen Foley brings her craft to new heights with Devil Takes a Bride," the seductive tale of a man bent on revenge and the beauty who teaches him to love again. . . .
In the quiet English countryside, far from the intrigues of London, Lizzie Carlisle slowly mends her broken heart, devoting herself to her new position as lady's companion to the Dowager Viscountess Strathmore-- until her peaceful life is turned upside down by a visit from "Devil" Strathmore, the old woman's untamed nephew--a dangerously handsome man whose wicked reputation hides a tortured soul.
Devlin Kimball, Lord Strathmore, has spent years adventuring on the high seas, struggling to make his peace with the tragedy that claimed the lives of his family. But now he has uncovered the dark truth behind the so-called accident and swears retribution. He has no intention of taking a bride--until his eccentric aunt's will forces he and Lizzie together, and Devlin finds his path to vengeance blocked by the stubborn but oh-so-tempting Miss Carlisle. Her passionate nature rivals his own. But disillusioned once by love, Lizzie will accept nothing less than his true devotion. . . .

Very enjoyable and a fitting addition to this fabulous series of books!
London, 1817, Devlin "Devil", Lord Strathmore, had uncovered the dark truth about the fire at the inn. The fire had been deliberate! He also knew that one or more of the morally twisted gentlemen in the "Horse and Chariot Club" were to blame. Devlin vowed to learn the names of the guilty and kill them. Marriage never entered the equation. But Aunt Augusta's will changed that.
Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carlisle had been lady's companion to Augusta, who had been affectionately known to all as "Lady Ironsides". Knowing how much the old lady loved her nephew, Lizzie had tricked Devlin into visiting only weeks before the lady died. Devlin had been annoyed at Lizzie at first. But his aunt had been the only person Devlin cared for anymore and understood, after awhile, why Lizzie had done it. Both of them were shocked when the will was read. The problem for Lizzie was that she had already been through a broken heart before with Lord Alec. (The brother of Lizzie's best friend in the previous book titled "LADY OF DESIRE".) The last thing she wanted was another man in her life! The problem for Devlin was that if anyone at the club realized his actually had come to care for Lizzie, she would be in grave danger!
***** EXCELLENT! I can tell you this much more without spoiling anything and I only tell because the reader knows this from the beginning: Sarah was saved from the fire by someone, Ginny, and raised for the next twelve years in Ireland. Though Sarah recalls nothing, Ginny wishes to return Sarah to her only living relative, now that he has finished traveling. First though, Ginny must make sure Devlin is not like the men in whose company he keeps.
Author Gaelen Goley has done an incredible job writing about the Knight family. (Alec & Jacinda's family.) Readers will have glimpses into the lives of a few past characters as well. You do NOT have to read any of the previous books to thoroughly enjoy this one. The plot is strong, the writing perfect, and the story moves along at a good pace. You will not find yourself getting bored at any point. I highly recommend the entire series! *****
Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews.
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 .
