Devil Takes a Bride by Gaelen Foley | : Books
Of course, this is a romance novel – but even with my big leeway for romances, Foley fell flat for me in all these aspects. I’m on a roll. Gaelen Foley balances the plotting and romance effectively, and I was thoroughly captivated by both Devlin’s plight for revenge, and his quest for Lizzie Carlisle’s heart.
Carstairs is interesting to read about to say the least, toley perverse, yet cunning in his control of the members of his club.
Devil Takes A Bride — All About Romance
I am such a fool for bluestocking ladies. In this entertaining, if somewhat melodramatic, tale, Foley manages to do what few authors have—write a truly sensual romance, possessing depth of plot and character, that isn’t overburdened by sex scenes.
I have to say that in those earlier books in the series, I had really liked Lizzie with Alec. I thought that the passage was equally as well-written as the rest of the book and the placement made sense, as the couple’s long drive to the countryside was a perfect opportunity for conversation, yet it still seemed to interrupt the sexual tension of the moment.
There were certain parts that had me fidgeting and almost scared to find out what happens next. They find that in each other.
This will forever be a favorite of mine. Want to Read saving…. Foley managed to make one that was so endearing, I couldn’t help but like it. Gifs made by me, btw Devlin cultivates the image of being a dangerous bridf, only seeking his own pleasures in life.
I found it hard to accept the fact that Devlin couldn’t let go of his need for revenge, until I realised that he saw himself as somehow responsible for the deaths of his parents and gaeleh and was on a massive guilt trip. My favorite part of the book though was Alec finding his way into the story, that ta,es just hilarious to me that NOW when he sees that Dev is interested in Lizzie, he decides he wants her too.
Because of Melody and her awesome review, Giulio Berruti became the face of Devlin for me and he would not leave. Elizabeth Hoyt 3 Authors: There are many marvelous scenes in the book such as Dev and Lizzie’s first sensual interaction which was filled with tenderness and a deep trusting intimacy that was a joy to read, or Dev finally coming to terms with his gaelrn deaths which was heartbreakingly cathartic.
There are also shades of gray in the “bad” characters, they aren’t completely evil for the sake of evil, and Quentin, “Damage” Randall, Carstairs, and Sir Torquil “Blood” Staines all exhibit very interesting characterizations for baddies as a result.
It’s by large the most underrated books of the series and I have no idea why. Lizzie Carlisle, the heroine of Foley’s fifth Knight family Regency after Lady of Desirepossesses a sly, stubborn streak that quickly endears her to the reader, as well as to Devlin “Devil” Strathmore.
It was mentioned several times, but near the end of the story it was simply dropped and never discussed again. Also by Gaelen Foley: Mar 12, Alexis Lee rated it it was ok. She really made sure that the person she was going to be with was the right one for her and would love her. Devlin and Lizzie made me melt, swoon, gush and get flustered a hundred times over like a little girl. Readers of the ‘Knight Miscellany’ series will have known Lizzie from previous books of the series.
There’s four men guarding a tied-up Lizzie and next thing you know, Lizzie has escaped, and both Lizzie and Mary are running for their lives, with the evil men none the wiser.
Nevertheless, I liked this one. This was an extremely satisfying read and I really enjoyed gaelfn. But let’s wait and see if there is another explanation. I hated that Scorcia ran back into the inn just because she heard a gunshot. So why abandon him? What’s even better is that Dev and Alec realized how much she merited her moment in the spotlight every bit as much as I did.
But the melodrama with which his agony is described is just a bit much for me. Why does everyone like this book? Another four and a half star read from The Knights Miscellany series. In his attempt to discover what happened to his parents, he is posing as a jaded rake and trying to join the Horse and Chariot Club. The bad The plot – it was a pain to read descriptive scenes and dialogues like this – She tried to tales away, but he pressed gently on her belly and her thigh, stilling her, his hands resting with casual dominance atop the devvil white muslin of her night rail.
