Lady Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley has been very unhappy in her marriage of convenience to Lord Reginald. Her husband gets more distant and the trips to her bed are becoming less frequent as time goes by. She's stuck in a loveless, childless marriage and so she has to make the best of it. She also has to live with his gambling problems.
Ludovic, or The Devil DeVere as he is widely known, is used to getting what he wants. He has his own set of rules and code and decides that Diana will be quite the challenge.
While visiting the Viscount DeVere with her friends, Annalee and Edward Chambers, for the horse races, Diana discovers a terrible secret about her husband. While seeking comfort and help from Ludovic, Diana also learns that her husband's gambling debts have put them in financial ruin.
Will one night of flaming passion in the bed of the Devil be enough?
What can I say but that I'm in love with the Devil DeVere? Victoria Vane has written another fantastic book in The Devil DeVere series, The Devil You Know. There is a reason why Ludovic is a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy, and it's revealed in this book. He's rich, daring, handsome, and knows how to please the ladies. Ludovic lives for the thrill of a challenge. Diana's life hasn't been easy, and now I know a little more about why she's been so very stoic. I do admire Diana for trying to figure out a way for her to be happy. Ms. Vane writes will a lot of passion and flair, her characters are well written, and sometimes mysterious. There is also a lot of humor instilled in some of the situations that made me laugh out loud. The Devil You Know contains a lot of twists and turns and is a roller coaster ride that kept me turning the pages. The sex scenes are steamy, passionate and very descriptive. I wasn't ready for the book to end where it did, that was a surprise. I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if you like a great historical story. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, The Devil's Match.
