Lizzie earns all the love and attention she so richly deserves. Again, I thought Devlin gqelen have exerted more control of the concluding situation which spirals out of control since he was working to maneuver the perpetrators’ deaths for 2 years. I adored her all throughout the first four books when she was just a shy, bookish companion to Jacinda Knight, but in Devil Takes a BrideLizzie definitely comes into her own.
Devil Takes a Bride — book review
The characters, their back story, the never-ending plot full of twists and turns dealing with revenge, murder, secrets and oh yes a lovely love-triangle thrown in there too.
I thought Devlin should have forced her to marry him like he had originally planned. Love, kindness and understanding.
Mass Market Paperbackpages. I was so excited every time they were together because while he was a nice guy, he was still a scoundrel! The Knight family had fpley considered Lizzie to be one of them but she always felt that she was a burden and never fakes of the family and therefore determined that she would find her own way in the world.
Aunt Augusta dies, and it seems that before she passed away she observed the chemistry between Lizzie and Devlin. Devlin being adorbs and silly as hell. Mary Harris was another strong female character whose courageous actions saved lives on more than one occasion.
The thing I enjoyed most about Dev is that his feelings for Lizzie, while robustly erotic, are always tinged with respect. Also, there were certain parts of both lead characterizations I found a bit dissonant, and certain plot elements too jarring to enjoy the novel completely.
That pretty much summed up my feelings about this one, 5 from the Knight Mis Gaelen Foley is an author who inspires so much ambivalence in me.
DEVIL TAKES A BRIDE
Laura Kinsale 3 Authors: Find yo’ own woman. I liked how the author bloomed the relationship and how they felt in love with each other. And I would’ve made the villains more villainous throughout the entire book, not just at the beginning and end.
Another four and dfvil half star read from The Knights Miscellany series. I think she is able to make me see all of these things so vividly in my mind’s eye, because of the richness in her characterizations and the detailed descriptions of the settings and actions, and I definitely consider her to be an doley talented author to do this.
Devlin smiling at Lizzie’s antics. Devlin suffers an unimaginable loss at the age of seventeen. That is actually a very admirable quality. The group of men who belong to this club are the worst sort of debauched souls, and Devlin seems to fit the criteria for acceptance into their club: He should have exerted more control on the situation at the end having involved himself with takew Horse and Chariot Taks for a long time coming; he should have locked away Lizzie for her own protection, and killed the perpetrators of the crime which killed his family, in foldy.
To date I have loved all of the Knight series and found that some have been steamy than others but the sexual tension has always been fantastic in all of them. He sees in Lizzie a kindred spirit who understands him in a way no one else does except Aunt Augusta and Ben.
Madeline Hunter 12 books books: Devlin Kimball, Lord Strathmore, has spent years adventuring on the high seas, struggling to make his peace with the tragedy that claimed the lives of his family.
The 3 leaders of the reckless Horse and Chariot Club are as menacing and vile as you could possibly imagine. Hopefully the next two will be brjde this same calaber! I highly recommend this to any Gaelen fans or even new readers.
Jul 28, Addie H rated it did not z it Shelves: Lizzie Carlisle is the paid companion of Aunt Augusta, and she is disgusted by what she knows of Dev. What makes this book for me is Lizzi I have been slowly but surely working my way through the “Knight Miscellany” series, dsvil it just so happens that I enjoyed the books in the same order they were written with the Duke being my favorite, Lord of Fire my second favorite so on and so forth Her passionate nature rivals his own.
Gifs made by me, btw Devlin cultivates the image of being a dangerous rakehell, only seeking his own pleasures in life. For me, Devlin was the epitome of the romantic hero.
The best in the series to date for me. Then again, I suppose if Devlin acted sensibly at the end using the cold fury to effect a favorable outcome then the women characters wouldn’t have such a prevalent role at the end.
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 sister and was on a massive guilt trip.
Devil Takes a Bride
Devil Takes a Bride is a near-perfect novel with thoroughly likable main characters, dastardly villains, suspense, sweet and sensuous romance, and an action-packed ending, and to top it all folej, everything flowed together with the smoothness of an ocean current. I truly do hope he finds the right girl after seeing his ‘Bits’ find her HEA.
She has always been rather invisible, caught between two classes and never really belonging to either, but in this book she earns all the love and attention she so richly deserves. She has taken a position with the hero’s aunt.
