ARC Review The Virgin Huntress by Victoria Vane

Title: The Virgin Huntress (The Devil DeVere #2)
Author: Victoria Vane
Source: Request
Genre: Historical Erotic Romance
Length: Novella
Release Date : June 29, 2012 from Breathless Press
 Desperate times call for devilish measures… 
when the object of one’s passion has eyes for another… 
it’s time to take matters in hand!

Lady Vesta Chambers is accustomed to getting what she wants…
Coddled and pampered, since her mother's death, Lady Vesta Chambers is beside herself when her father goes to London to prepare for her come-out and returns with a young bride of his own. With her world turned upside down, Vesta accompanies her godmother, Diana, to town, where she is smitten the moment she lays eyes on a certain captain of the Seventeenth Light Dragoons. 

But when the object of her passion has eyes for another… 
Captain Hewett DeVere, younger brother and heir to Viscount Ludovic "The Devil" DeVere, has returned from the American war scarred, disillusioned, and looking forward to settling down to a quiet and respectable life. But when the handsome and straight-laced captain turns his eyes toward the widowed Diana, Vesta is prepared to take devilish measures to prove she is no longer a little girl, but a woman with the passion of …a huntress.
I thought a Wild Night's Bride was great, but, WOW, The Virgin Huntress was wonderful!  There is nothing I love more than a fantastic romance with a huge dose of humor and Ms. Vane delivered.  

What's a blossoming 'lady' to do with then man who has caught her eye is looking to another?  Why, use every bit of trickery she can muster to make him see things her way, of course.  Vesta's antics range everywhere from touting her Aunt as a lush to kidnapping Hew.

The Virgin Huntress is role reversal at it's best.  In romance, especially historical, the aggressor is almost always the man, but not here.  If you're looking for a timid country mouse you're not going to find it in Vesta.  She sees Hew, wants him, and knows she will do anything to have him.

If you're in the mood for a lighthearted romantic romp look no further than The Virgin Huntress. You're bound to laugh the night away :)

*From June 22-29th you can pick up A Wild Night's Bride (The First in the Devil DeVere series) at Amazon for .99  *


  1. Thank you so much for the lovely reviews!

    THE DEVIL DEVERE series was such an incredibly fun experience to write, as it allowed me to span the entire romantic spectrum in 4 erotic historical novellas that combine to read as one continuous story.

    A WILD NIGHT's BRIDE with its mad antics lives up to its name, and I loved the hilarity and explosively passionate pairing of opposites with Hew and Vesta in THE VIRGIN HUNTRESS.

    Books three and four (THE DEVIL YOU KNOW and THE DEVIL'S MATCH) will change tone completely to become dark and intensely erotic with the 2 part story of Diana and DeVere.

    I hope you will all check out the excerpts to all four stories on my web site at

    Warmest regards,
