Series Review: The Devil DeVere Series

The_Devils_Match_600x900The Devil DeVere Series including “A Wild Night’s Bride” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, April 2012, $0.99, 105pp), “The Virgin Huntress” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, June 2012, $3.49, 99pp), “The Devil You Know” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, July 2012, $4.99, 127pp) and “The Devil’s Match” by Victoria Vane (historical, Breathless Press, August 2012, $3.49, 132pp)

 

Summary:
For more on this series, check out what the author has to say about it.

 

Review:
There are four short books (each about 100 pages) in the Devil DeVere series by Victoria Vane chronicling the amorous adventures and happily ever afters of three couples. Each successive book builds upon the previous ones, making this a series that should be read in order. While the first story wasn’t my favorite of the group, it set the foundation for a strong and highly memorable romance between the debauched Ludovic DeVere and the reluctant and gun shy Lady Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley.

“Lord’s Fall” by Thea Harrison (review copy)
This book is out on November 6, so a review will be published closer to that date.

 

“Haven of Obedience” by Marina Anderson (ebook)
This one is billed as a “if you liked 50 Shades of Grey try this one.” I find that odd as this book is nothing like that. In this one, Natalie goes to the Haven to learn to be submissive – but she really isn’t. I did enjoy the book fine, but it isn’t as romance-y as I would like.

 

“Across My Knee: The Delights of Spanking” anthology (ebook)
I believe that I bought this book because it was free. While this qualifies as erotic rather than erotic romance, I enjoyed most of the stories in the anthology. Very steamy stuff!

“Double In” by Tonya Ramagos (ebook)
Brothers Porter and Reid both want Marsha. Unfortunately, they hurt her badly in the past when they supported their sister’s attempt to sue Marsha. But, the two are done giving Marsha space. This story was ok. I liked the romantic relationship between Porter, Marsha and Reid much more than the external plot. I skimmed quite a bit of this one.

 

“Because You Are Mine, Part V: Because I Said So” by Beth Kery (ebook)
Ian and Francesca are still in France, basking in the glow of their new sexual relationship. The two return to the museum for driving lessons, which of course turns into something much more. Ian is quite dangerous normally, but even more so when he gets close to the museum. I am still enjoying this one, although am quite eager to get to the end.

 

“My Liege of Dark Haven” by Cherise Sinclair (ebook)
It is finally Xavier’s turn to get his happily ever after, and it comes in the form of Abby, a professor who is intending to write a paper on BDSM. When she gets hired as a receptionist at Dark Haven, she gets more than she bargained for though – as receptionists must participate in club demonstrations. Abby is tough to like initially. She comes to the club to study, not to get involved and as such, is very disconnected. Also, she is hung up on her ex-boyfriend who dumped her because she wouldn’t act as his submissive. However, Xavier does peel away her layers eventually. I enjoyed seeing Abby’s growth and how she blossomed under Xavier’s care.
