But Lizzie has had enough of his taking advantage of his aunt and so takes steps to see that he comes home.

She is hard at work on her next book. I suppose that doesn’t sound like a lot but it felt like too much to me. Still, Devlin can’t help but care, if somewhat reluctantly, for his aged Aunt Augusta who was his taoes after his parents deaths, for his valet and best friend, Ben, and most of all for Lizzie.

It took a while but I did end up liking Damien from Lord of Ice. Fate soon brings them back together, and on totally different terms. He’s got a big heart, is incredibly selfless and very honorable and has a playful mischievous gaeoen that makes you wish this guy was real. The hero stops being a dick foly enough for me to start to like him, and I am engaged again.

The author is very effective at drawing his conflicted approach towards relationships, and the way he longs for love but fears it will be snatched away.

I have to say that in those earlier books in the series, I had really liked Lizzie with Alec. As a companion to elderly Lady Augusta Strathmore, Lizzie pens a note to Devil implying that his lonely aunt is near death in order to get the notorious rake to visit. The bad The plot – it was a pain to read descriptive scenes and dialogues like this – She tried to jerk away, but he eevil gently on her belly and her thigh, stilling her, his hands resting with casual dominance atop the thin white muslin of her night rail.

Lizzie holes herself up in Mrs Hall’s Academy, Devlin maintains an image of a notorious rakehell. The members of the club practice every form of debauchery imaginable and manage to hide their worst offenses because they happen to rub elbows with the ton and most of them have titles of their own.

Since Alec and Lizzie had unfinished business, so to speak, I was not at all surprised to see him resurface in Devil Takes a Bridebeing his usual charming self, except now with a jealous streak added, after he realized what a huge mistake yakes made.

I like that Foley addressed that Lizzie and Devlin were both people who were terrified of love because they were terrified of loss. This book is great Alec Devi, plays his part in this and I’ll be honest I was skeptical of him after the stunt he pulled with Lizzie ffoley his earnest guilt and attempt at winning her back was really sweet and so much fun. He was so consumed with his plan to avenge the deaths of his family that he had lost all self-respect and basically saw the whole thing as a suicide mission.

This was an extremely satisfying read and I really enjoyed it. But then she meets Devlin. After the characters finally decide to get together I am not calling that a spoiler, because honestly if you didn’t know that was going to happen, You fail.

Gaelen Foley – Author. It was a nice story with nice characters but too predictable. Celebrated storyteller Gaelen Foley brings her craft to new heights with Devil Takes a Bridethe seductive tale of a man bent on revenge and the beauty who teaches him to love again.

Alec’s thoughtlessness had nearly jaded her completely toward men, and the determined bluestocking had decided to make it on her own for the rest of her life, until Dev came along to stir up her emotions again. To date I have loved all of the Knight series and found that some have been steamy than others but the sexual tension has always been fantastic in all of them.

I have started the 2nd book of the series, but there something that is making me stop to read it further. I couldn’t put my finger on what or why, but this story touched me deeply.

A bluestocking in her own right, who stands by her principles but has a compassionate generous kind gentle heart. Revenge stories are too fun and have far gaeeln potentialand I was put off by Devlin’s succumbing, anguishing characterization at the fole end after Lizzie inexplicably leaves him when it seemed like she reached an understanding of his tortured soul.


There was also a scene in which Devlin kidnaps Lizzie that was equal parts wry humor and dark sensuality, a heady combination.

She has taken a position with the hero’s aunt. I do love assassins. Love, kindness and understanding. I don’t even know where to begin. Jul 28, Addie H rated it did not like it Shelves: Even though he knew she was in danger!

Devil Takes A Bride — All About Romance

Devil Takes a Bride is one of the best books I’ve read in quite some time. The last act was massively foldy packed, and i was a little confused because I wasn’t a huge fan of all the build up throughout the book but that’s just me.

Devil Takes a Bride — book review

But Devlin is not the man that Lizzie expected him to be. View all 3 comments.

Still, that places it Oh man. I feel like she opened her heart even when no man deserved the chances she gave! She bursts into Devlin’s life, and he just doesn’t have a chance in the world! I truly do hope he finds the right girl after seeing his ‘Bits’ find her HEA. Many of the conflicts, or tropes, I would say, were unnecessary for the overall plot and were written so half-heartedly that they detracted from the story.

Devil Takes a Bride

Gaelen Foley is one of the most consistently good romance authors that I have found to date, and I’m eagerly looking forward to continuing this series, and reading about Alec’s HEA very soon. Jun 17, Dee rated it really liked it Shelves: The love is the middle of the story and not in the ending. That’s always a positive for me.
