Baroness Diana Palmerston-Wriothesley wants nothing more than to enjoy her visit to London. Acting as her goddaughter's chaperone, the last thing she intends is to come face to face with Viscount Ludovic " The Devil" DeVere. It's been four years since their night of heated passion, and since the Viscount fled London leaving Diana and her feelings of abandonment to grow into hatred.
Viscount Ludovic DeVere newly arrived from traveling abroad has found a few new vices to add to his collection, but nothing seems to help him forget the night Diana came to his bed. When his old friend Sir Edward Chambers informs him that his daughter, Vesta and Diana will be in London for Vesta's come out.
Vesta suddenly disappears and Diana is forced to go to the Viscount for help. Neither can deny the feelings and passion that is still there when they meet each other.
Ludovic, again wants Diana for his own, but Diana is determined to stay out of his bed because this time Diana is not sure she would survive if he should leave her again.
I am really loving The Devil DeVere series by Victoria Vane. The Devil's Match is one wild roller coaster ride of passion, emotions, and debauchery with some unexpected twists and turns thrown in. The sparks fly when Diana confronts Ludovic in his home during a sex fest. Oh to have been a fly on the wall during that visit. I so enjoyed the banter between Ludovic and Diana, I felt like I was in the room listening and observing everything. Ms. Vane has the ability to infuse her books with such realism, and her characters are so well written with depth and feeling. Her world building is excellent and captures the reader on page one and hangs on long after the last page. I felt great compassion for Ludovic as he revealed a deep dark secret to Diana. I just wanted to be able to comfort him. Diana is much stronger than she gives herself credit for, surviving her dead husband's secret and abuse. Plus she put's her wants and needs aside for others, I'm not sure I could do that. I admire Diana very much. The secondary characters, which are mostly from other books in the series help round out the story and make it so enjoyable. The sex scenes are vivid, passionate, and scorching hot. I really recommend The Devil's Match to anyone who likes a good about enemies to lovers stories, this is one of the best!
