Reader Review: I have been waiting for Lizzie's story and this did not dissapoint. After being in love with Alec for so long, we learn of Lizzie's heartbreak. The story of unrequited love, cinderella and the reform of a rake are all merged into one in this well written story. Wish Alec had been a little bit more dangerous similar to Winterley (3rd book) or Hawk (1st book) but otherwise can't complain. Hero has some redeeming qualities and the story is set over a longer period of time to give it more meaning. Recommend this as a good book to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and oreo cookies. I have only recently discovered Gaelen Foley's book, am very much enjoying them. Not as steamy as other writers, more complex and romantic.
Celebrated storyteller Gaelen Foley brings her craft to new heights with Devil Takes a Bride , the seductive tale of a man bent on revenge and the beauty who teaches him to love again. . . .
In the quiet English countryside, far from the intrigues of London, Lizzie Carlisle slowly mends her broken heart, devoting herself to her new position as lady’s companion to the Dowager Viscountess Strathmore— until her peaceful life is turned upside down by a visit from “Devil” Strathmore, the old woman’s untamed nephew—a dangerously handsome man whose wicked reputation hides a tortured soul.
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. But now he has uncovered the dark truth behind the so-called accident and swears retribution. He has no intention of taking a bride—until his eccentric aunt’s will forces he and Lizzie together, and Devlin finds his path to vengeance blocked by the stubborn but oh-so-tempting Miss Carlisle. Her passionate nature rivals his own. But disillusioned once by love, Lizzie will accept nothing less than his true devotion. . . .
From the Paperback edition.

Devil Takes A Bride
The fanciful cupola-topped pavilion languished in desolation on the frozen marshes south of the Thames, a gaudy ruin, with a gray February sleet blowing against its rusty, fake turrets and boarded-up windows. Some said the place was haunted. Others claimed it was cursed. All that His Lordship’s unassuming little man-of-business knew, however, was that if his glamorous patron did not soon arrive, he was sure to catch his death in this weather.
Clutching his umbrella over his head, Charles Beecham, Esquire, stood wrapped in his brown wool greatcoat, his beaver hat pulled low over his receding hairline, and a look of abject misery on his face. He sneezed abruptly into his handkerchief.
“God bless ye.” Mr. Dalloway, standing nearby, slid him a greasy grin.
“Thank you,” Charles clipped out before turning away from the unkempt property agent with a respectable humph.
Dalloway was the opposition in this matter, determined to bilk His Lordship out of three thousand pounds for the dubious privilege of owning the godforsaken place. Charles meant to advise his patron against the purchase in the strongest possible terms, not the least because it would fall to him to explain the mad expenditure to old Lady Ironsides. Stealing another discreet glance at his fob watch, he pursed his lips. Late.
Alas, his staid life as the Strathmore family’s solicitor had become alarmingly interesting since His Lordship’s return from his high adventures on the seven seas and elsewhere.
Though barely thirty, the viscount had done the sorts of things Charles preferred to read about from the safety

I really wanted to give this more credit. I liked the writing style and there were a couple of laugh out loud moments/dialogue lines. This was the second Gaelen Foley novel I read. Although the first was not a keeper either, I was really intrigued by the excerpt for this one and hoped that Lizzie could hold my interest throughout in standing up to the hero. I read the novel pretty much in one sitting but was overall disappointed in that Lizzie just seemed to turn to mush too often when with Devlin.
