Product Description

**Library Journal Best E-Book Romance 2012**When The Devil Plays Cupid ... There Could Be Hell To Pay..She needs a protector... Once seduced by whispered promises of a faithless lover, Phoebe Scott is determined to make a name on the Covent Garden stage, but after three years of bit parts, she realizes she'll never achieve her goals on her own merits. Finally acknowledging her success is dependent on a powerful patron, Phoebe determines to seek out a protector at London's most notorious brothel.He's avowed to celibacy... Sir Edward "Ned" Chambers has been lost and lonely since his wife's death in childbirth. Burdened with blame, he has sworn to a life of celibacy, but after three years, he is inwardly edgy, irritable, and increasingly discontent.Desperate times call for devilish measures... Viscount Ludovic "The Devil" DeVere, a rake of the first order, is hell-bent to return his best friend Ned to the land of the living. Perceiving the cause behind his best friend's unhappiness--as well as the obvious cure--DeVere takes matters in hand. DeVere's meddling machinations result in an outrageous wager that could lead Ned to a new love... or land them all in the Tower. Hijinks and passion abound in this sexy, rollicking Georgian romp."The "Devil DeVere" series is a variation on the rake's progress, or the rake's reformation, except that is doesn't start with said rake as the main character--a device that is amazingly clever on Vane's part and allows her to circle in on DeVere without revealing too much at the outset. In the first two books DeVere is the puppet master, rearranging his friends' lives. But in the background, readers catch hints that there's more to him than the debauched reprobate they see. By the time we find out his story, we're invested. The series is erotic and sexy, and sometimes you want to shake the characters until their teeth rattle, but it is absolutely marvelous. This one should be read with bonbons. And a fan!" - Marlene Harris for Library JournalTHE DEVIL DEVERE SERIES:A Wild Night's Bride #1The Virgin Huntress #2The Devil You Know #3The Devil's Match #4A Devil's Touch #5Jewel of the East #6
