Review: The Devil You Know (The Devil DeVere #3) by Victoria Vane


Who can find a virtuous woman… Beautiful, respectable, and dutiful, Lady Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley  has long resigned herself to her twelve-year loveless and childless marriage to a feckless husband…until his gambling pushes them to the brink of  financial ruin.

Sometimes the devil is in disguise as a gentleman… Viscount Ludovic, “The Devil DeVere”, is a man accustomed to taking what he wants according to his whim and heedless of the cost…until he encounters a woman who won’t be had at any price.

When dealing with the devil, it’s easy to be burned…When Diana discovers a secret that shatters the carefully built façade concealing her private pain, she seeks aid and comfort from the most unlikely place…the devil’s arms. But will a single night of heavenly passion damn them both forever?

I am happy to say that Ms. Victoria Vane has allowed me to read this one as well as the first two in the series.

A Wild Night’s Bride and The Virgin Huntress

This is by far an awesome series. Ms. Vane’s voice and depiction of history – how richly she flavors her words – puts you in the book. You will be able to close your eyes and picture the beautiful gowns, the sharp dressed men, the atmosphere will cling to your skin. But most of all, the characters will not leave you. Ms. Vane does a great job of keeping the family and friends together in the story but she doesn’t allow the side stories to overshadow the main characters and storyline. And another great thing about Ms. Vane’s writing is you never feel left out or confused as to who the characters are.

In this story, we have Diana. She is the cousin of Ned and Annlee. In the past stories, you briefly hear of her past. My heart went out to her, but once I heard all of her story…. Damn, my heart bleeds for her.  You will think her to be a bitch in the earlier stories, but I promise you… Give her a chance and she will change your mind. She just wants to be…. Be what, she is not sure. She just knows that there should be more to life than what she has…..

Lord Ludovic DeVere, oh man…. How I have waited for this story, but it seems I still need more. He is a man of many mysteries. But he is a man that will not deny the taste of the forbidden fruit of a luscious woman’s flesh. He is a man that I would love to dip in honey and eat up.  He is wicked naughty and can turn any given honest situation into a sinful affair. He can have any woman he wants, but there is one woman that strikes his fancy… But what happens when that woman is listed on the forbidden list, by another woman…..

I would say that these two get their story, but I don’t want to lie to you. This is a short story, but you will get enough that you will want more… And believe me I will bug Ms. Vane until I get the whole story.  These two deserve their story – at least I am praying that they get their story because – hell – everyone deserves to have their story told…. Especially these two. I would love to tell you more about these two, but I can’t… Oh wait, I can tell you in this story you will meet two people that one, actually gets what he deserves and the other one, you will want to bitch slap the piss out of!! But that’s what brings so much color to the story! 🙂 Did I leave you wanting to read this story now, lol??

Hope you enjoy it as much am I am enjoying this series!
