The Devil You Know

The Devil DeVere, #3

I really enjoyed The Devil You Know, but just a smidgen less than the first two books in this series. I've been hooked from the beginning, like with no other series I've ever read. It's filled with mystery, mischief, adventure, romance and oh yes, sex that will leave you gasping for breath as you soak up each page of this sensual, romantic experience. The hero and heroine mesh beautifully and the additional characters make the story more complete. The sex will only get you revved for more and will keep you happily coming back! Ms. Vane has kept me under her spell and I'm quite impressed! Okay readers, The Devil's Match is next. I just have to see where this leads (I'm so excited!)…

Diana went along with the marriage her father arranged for her, thinking her father knew the best match for her. Things just didn't seem right with his sexual tendencies though. By mistake, Diana discovered just why that was. This knowledge, along with plans to fix a horse race, drove her to DeVere. Diana had only planned to tell him of the race, but DeVere had other plans for her. The attraction between the two is intense, but Diana knows DeVere for the rake that he is and is determined not to submit to his wishes. DeVere is just as determined that he will have her…

Book Blurb for The Devil You Know

Sometimes the Devil is Disguised as a Gentleman...

In this third installment of the award-winning Devil DeVere series, DeVere is finally center stage when Ned, Annalee, and her cousin, Diana arrive at DeVere’s estate for a weekend of horseracing. From the first meeting, DeVere makes his interest in Diana acutely known. Although she sees no harm in a light flirtation, she doesn’t intend to become another notch on his bedpost. Nevertheless, DeVere fascinates her.

Ned gave her a meaningful look. "I hope you'll take extreme care in any dealings with him. He is ruthless and calculating when he chooses to be and has a strong predilection to manipulate and exploit the vulnerabilities of others—when it suits his purpose. He just can't help himself. It's not that he's evil incarnate, or anything like that; it's just that he has low tolerance for weakness, incompetence, or buffoonery."

Diana lifted her brow. "You know I am no fool, dear Edward. I take full responsibility for my actions and have already made clear what I am willing and not willing to sacrifice."

Although DeVere is outwardly arrogant, ruthless, unpredictable, and manipulative, the private man is quite another creature—intensely loyal and fiercely protective of those few he cares about. Diana also maintains a false front to the world. Her twelve year marriage is a mockery and she feels unfulfilled and undesirable which makes her all too vulnerable to DeVere’s dangerous charm. 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.
