Author: Victoria Vane
Source: Author Request
Genre: Historical Erotic Romance
Length: Novella
Release Date: Aug. 24, 2012 from Breathless Press

Once burned twice shy… 
but when old flames come together…
passion reignites...

When burned once… Arriving in London as her goddaughter's chaperone, Baroness Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley wants to avoid her erstwhile lover at all costs. Once nearly consumed by passion, four years has reduced the former inferno to bitterness and ashes.

By an old flame... A world-weary master of seduction, Ludovic "The Devil" DeVere is bored with his chosen life of debauchery. When Diana's charge disappears, she is forced to seek help from the devil's lair, and their mutual desire reignites with undeniable ferocity.

Fire is best fought with fire… While DeVere is hell-bent to have her back for keeps, Diana is equally determined to bring him to his knees…by acquiring some sensual secrets of her own.

There absolutely could not have been a better conclusion to Diana and Ludovic DeVere's tale!

The 'Devil's' past is finally revealed. From his shocking beginnings to compassionate actions it becomes clear that DeVere isn't exactly the villain that Diana and society think him to be.

Diana finally learns to overcome her insecurities and embrace her long denied feelings.

The Devil's Match has certain turned out to be the most erotic in the DeVere series. Not because of the frequency of sexual encounters but more from the sensuality conjured. An intimate look into the world of 'Eastern' erotic arts takes place in the latter half of the novella and it is absolutely carnal ;)

I've said it before and I'll say it again, The Devil DeVere series is an absolute must read for lovers of the romance genre. In under 150 pages Vane is somehow able to evoke the passion, heartache, and drama that is usually found in full length novels!

"Damn you to hell, DeVere!" she cried, jerking out of his hold.
"Yes, I want you now, but I would despise myself for it the moment we finished."

"Why?" he asked, confounded.

"Why? Because I once confused passion for deeper feeling. I won't make that mistake again."

"But don't you remember how it was between us? I can bring you rapture. You know that. What harm is there?"

"Surely the same words the serpent whispered to Eve," she retorted.

  1. That sounds like a nice little read.

  2. It is awesome. The series kicked me off on this historical romance kick I'm in right now. LOL. Laurie's likely to whoop me for not reading more PNRs. ;)
