If you've read my reviews regularly you know that characters named Devil Beast or any other strange I guess this is supposed to show what a bad boy he is name really bothers me It's a pet peeve of mine; it just feels like lazy writing Therefore it is a testament to how much I enjoyed this book that I'm still able to give Devil Takes A Bride four stars After all Foley does nickname our hero the Viscount of Strath Devil his real name Devlin by the way is much better Our story starts out soon after Devlin has made his way back to London When Devlin was a teenager his parents were tragically killed leading him to go seriously off the deep end In response his Grandmother the Dowager Viscountess kicked him out of England to go find himself on a ship And he did Which is why although most of London thinks he is back to his wild ways in reality Devlin is desperately searching for his parents' murdererLizzie Carlisle—lady's companion to the Dowager Viscountess Strath—is one of those haters She has a huge ax to grind with irresponsible men after getting her heart shattered so when she sees gambling bill after gambling bill sent to her employer she decides its time to teach the Viscount a lesson by sending him a letter saying that his grandmother is dying And thus the hijinks begin that I will not spoilThis book like many of Foley's almost sits at the edge of romance and thriller The men Devlin investigates are seriously scummy—many have committed rape and murder The danger faced by our two characters is real there are no random unnecessary kidnappings in this book and present throughout the novel However despite the fact that probably half of the book's words are devoted the mystery I never felt like the romance between Devlin and Lizzie was lacking Foley does an amazing job of navigating these two plots and giving them both justice I honestly felt like neither were rushed Devlin was such a complex hero He was very singularly focused on avenging his parents and I loved reading how his relationship with Lizzie affected his mission His emotions over his parents' death and his reactions felt so real I could feel Devlin's guilt and burden as a readerAt the same time I appreciated that the book didn't drown in Devlin's angst The interactions between Lizzie and Devlin often left me smiling and I even giggled at a few points Pretty remarkable when you consider just how heavy the plot was at timesLizzie was the perfect heroine for Devlin She was kind and caring while also having a backbone of steel While initially wary of Devlin she soon let go of her first impression and trusted the goodness in him instead of his reputation That said I wish we had gotten to know Lizzie better Devil Takes A Bride was primarily Devlin's book and oftentimes it felt like Lizzie was just a supporting character In conclusion this book was beautifully written with interesting characters It is the kind of book that you will stay up to finish with a smile on your face Rating 45 reading my blog sunflowersandromancecom

review Devil Takes a Bride Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB è In the uiet 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 Strath— until her peaceful life is turned upside down by a visit from “Devil” A dangerously handsome man whose wicked reputation hides a tortured soulDevlin Kimball Lord Strath 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. I liked this book but I doubt I'd ever reread it and I did think it too longThe heroine Lizzie I liked her uite a bit she was a bluestocking the horror and didn't take any crap from males She was the only one who stood up to Devlin and called him on his negligent behavior towards his aunt She continued to keep him on his toes throughout the book not letting him be a worthless dandy I appreciated that she wasn't wooed by money and didn't fall for the silly platitudes spouted by unreliable men She really made sure that the person she was going to be with was the right one for her and would love herDevlin damn did you really have to infiltrate that dirty rapist club Couldn't you have just broken into everyone's houses and gone through things like a normal person That seems to be a expedient and safer route uestioning people and possibly being murdered by known murderers or breaking into their house while they're away I go for door number 2 every time unless the uestioning would be done when the person was tied to a chair that'd make sense then Anyway I enjoyed his character especially when he started to respect Lizzie as a person and not just a female that should be all over his hotness She was really the first to not drop at his feet like a sacrificial lamb The whole mystery thing was interesting but I did despise it at times for taking up so much of the book and sometimes making it so the author would skip a week in the timeline for the romance That would leave me confused about the romance And I would've made the villains villainous throughout the entire book not just at the beginning and end I did like this author and will read other books by her I'm rather interested in Lizzie's best friend Jacinda and her dangerous assassin husband's story I do love assassins
