**Special Note
The Devil DeVere Series- Library Journal Best E-Book Romance 2012
This short erotic installment in the award-winning Devil DeVere series can stand alone as a complete story, but also serves to bridge The Devil's Match and Jewel of the East (Salime and Simon's story).

In her last month of pregnancy, Diana, Viscountess DeVere, has barely settled into her new life and role as "the devil" DeVere's wife, when her increasingly restless husband receives an urgent summons to London. When Diana inadvertently discovers a message he received from a known courtesan with whom he was formerly linked, she fears her marriage is over before it has begun.
They were barely three months into a marriage that had begun on rather shaky ground. Was it possible that for him, the novelty of it had already worn off? This had always been Diana's greatest fear, for Ludovic was a man with a voracious sensual appetite, one he had honed with years of endless variety and constant, unrestrained indulgence. Diana, on the contrary, had known only one true lover--this same perplexing man who was now her husband--the one who had made her heavy with his child...and now left her alone in a cold bed.

A Devil's Touch by Victoria Vane is a short peek into the newly married Diana and Lord DeVere. Everything seems fine until one morning when Diana awakes Ludovic is already up and about his daily duties. When this happens eight mornings, Diana becomes increasingly worried that her husband has become bored with her and her steadily growing belly. Diana dwells on the what if's constantly and I think for myself I might have thought the same things.
When Diana discovers a letter from Salime asking for his help, Diana is fearful that he's going to leave her. I believe that Diana dwelled a little too much on the possibility that Ludovic was either leaving her or taking a mistress. At some point you have to have a little bit of trust. Diana decides she's going to confront her husband when he comes home. Lord DeVere is frustrated at Diana's accusations, plus just plain frustrated due to the lack of sex. He explains everything to Diana and tells her he wants her and only her, and he's going to prove it. All Diana has to do is trust him.

A Devil's Touch is another fabulous read. The story moved quickly and was well written. Each book I read with Lord Ludovic, I fall a little more in love with him. The sex scenes always leave me breathless and needing a cold shower. Ms. Vane also shows how important communication and trust is. You wouldn't think having a baby is funny, but the way Ms. Vane writes DeVere's reactions and comments are hilarious. I laughed several times. This baby will have big shoes to fill. I can't wait to see what Ms. Vane has in store for him as he grows up. If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend it.
