Devlin and Lizzie are both described as having above average intelligence, and they both actually put their brains to good use.
She even gave a hint of a blossoming interracial romance for him by the end of the book. She is super sweet and adorably, with big grey eyes and brown hair, and I imagined her as a young Felicity Jones from Northanger Abbey! So, their romance slowly grows, and I won’t say anymore to spoil it but I will say it was a very beautiful satisfying romance!
Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Carlisle is everything that Devlin bridde and vice versa. Bravo to Gaelen for going there. They thought through the situation and acted in the most reasonable manner they could find.
That would leave me confused about the romance. There’s four men guarding a tied-up Lizzie and next thing you know, Lizzie has escaped, and both Lizzie and Mary are running for their lives, with the evil men none the wiser. There were certain parts that had me fidgeting and almost scared to find out what happens next.
He shouldn’t have been grieving for his loss 12 years ago, when he knew Lizzie was in danger now. Gaelen Foley is most definitely doing it right. Goodreads helps fevil keep track of books you want to read.
I appreciated that she wasn’t wooed by money and didn’t fall for take silly platitudes spouted by unreliable men. On his family’s tenth anniversary, Devlin realizes that perhaps the ‘accident’ wasn’t so accidental and swears vengeance on the person or persons who took his family away from him. She is not the heroine of this novel.
Both Lizzie and Devlin come with baggage from their past, but when they are together, the pain of their pasts doesn’t seem to matter as much. The secondary cast was equally as well-developed as Dev and Lizzie. Unfortunately for Devlin, he’s been counting on that inheritance money and doesn’t wish to drag Lizzie into his dangerous affairs.
Lizzie was just so so sweet, and patient and understanding. Ten years later, Devlin has returned to England and is living the life of a despicable rake, racking up enormous bills and losing at the gambling tables.
Devlin and Lizzie made me melt, swoon, gush and get flustered a hundred times over like a little girl.
DEVIL TAKES A BRIDE
I liked the way how many people are involved; that in a way you will not be bored about the story. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Devlin, who previously could barely say the word ‘Love’ is now saying it with so much speed that one wonders how Lizzie didn’t get whiplash.

A dull, monotonous, and over descriptive writing style, that doesn’t contribute anything but additional boredom to brdie story. The fifth book of the series. They find eachother through Devlin’s delightful and matchmaking aunt.
Devil Takes a Bride
Her pursuers are members of a debauched aristocratic organization filey the Horse and Chariot Club. To date I have loved all of the Knight series and found that some have been steamy than others but the sexual tension has always been fantastic in all of them.
She was the only one who stood up to Devlin and called him on his negligent behavior towards his aunt. I think I am giving up on Gaelen Foley. She was the shy bookish companion that I secretly related to but didn’t know enough about to out right love. An enjoyable HR with lots of intrigue. Not even a joke. I didn’t find a single plot hole, and if there were any to be found, I was simply too absorbed in this amazing story to notice. I liked how the author bloomed the relationship and how they felt in lo The fifth book of the series.
Devil Takes a Bride — book review
Then again, I suppose if Devlin acted sensibly at the end using the cold fury to effect a favorable outcome then the women characters wouldn’t have such a prevalent role at the end. Carstairs is interesting to read about to say the least, very perverse, yet cunning in his control of the members of his club. The bulk of the novel’s content and pacing: Devlin is like an onion, he has many layers.
Danger and deception surround Devlin and Lizzie decil every turn and Devlin must walk a tightrope between his need for revenge and his growing feelings for Lizzie.

Naturally I couldn’t put this book down because of that. Refresh and try again. The story was a good one and GF manages to create quite a complex plot with great characterisations, especially fopey the villains, who are defs a ghastly bunch of nobs.
And I really enjoyed seeing the Knight’s in this.
