To Desire a Devil by Elizabeth Hoyt
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Publish Date: November 1, 2009
Binding: Mass Market
A wonderful historical romance. I loved reading about this time that I knew little about. I haven't read the previous three books in this series, but I will be now.
I loved the characters, Reynaud and Beatrice. Their chemistry and relationship in the beginning was wonderful. Beatrice is just a nice person and Reynaud is just trying to get used to living in civilization and society again after living with the Indians for the last seven years. Beatrice is trying to protect her Uncle and his claim, but she has feelings for Reynaud too. Reynaud does not want to have feelings for Beatrice, but he does and because of the world he has lived in for the last seven years he can't figure out how to act on them.
Add in some political intrigue, romance and a strong side to Beatrice who believes in her cause and you have a very enjoyable historical romance. When a determined man meets an innocent yet determined woman, you can always be sure the sparks will fly.
Reading the first three in the series is not necessary to understand this book, but I do look forward to going back and reading them.
This is my first Elizabeth Hoyt book and it was a very enjoyable read. I will pick up more of her books in the future when I'm in the mood for a wonderful historical romance.
NOTHING IS MORE INTOXICATING
Reynaud St. Aubyn has spent the last seven years in hellish captivity. Now half mad with fever he bursts into his ancestral home and demands his due. Can this wild-looking man truly be the last earl's heir, thought murdered by Indians years ago?
Beatrice Corning, the niece of the present earl, is a proper English miss. But she has a secret: No real man has ever excited her more than the handsome youth in the portrait in her uncle's home. Suddenly, that very man is here, in the flesh-and luring her into his bed.
THAN SURRENDERING TO A DEVIL.
Only Beatrice can see past Reynaud's savagery to the noble man inside. For his part, Reynaud is drawn to this lovely lady, even as he is suspicious of her loyalty to her uncle. But can Beatrice's love tame a man who will stop at nothing to regain his title-even if it means sacrificing her innocence?
