Karlynp & The Doggone World

Chatting about books, authors, reading devices and the latest events happening around the cyber-world of book reviews.

A Wild Night's Bride (The Devil DeVere #1) - Victoria Vane What a great start to a promising series of short, sexy, and hilarious historical romances! I am always amazed when an author can cram so much story into so few pages. (Only 105?!)

Victoria Vane weaves a fascinating storyline that is so deliciously absurd, it made me laugh and smile despite the ridiculousness of it all! Many of my GR friends recommended it, and I am so glad for it.

Book 1 of this series is about Ned and Phoebe, two highly likeable people who find love and comfort in this odd set of circumstances.

Ned is a lonely widow, father to an 18 y/o about to have her come out. His best friend is Lord "Devil" DeVere (a rake if there ever was one!!), who convinces him to attend an exclusive club where sex and debauchery are the only thing on the menu.

Phoebe was a gentle bred lady who found herself an outcast and now trying to survive. Hard circumstances bring her to work in the theater, but actresses are expected to perform privately as well (if you get my drift).

Note: I received a copy of this book from the author, but only afterwards did I realize I already had a copy in my Kindle account! So I will give her half credit for providing me the book, and a big thanks for the nudge to read it. :-)
