Only Beatrice Corning can see past Reynaud St. Aubyn's savagery to the noble man inside. And Reynaud is drawn to this lovely lady, even as he is suspicious of her loyalty to her uncle, the present Earl. But can Beatrice's love tame a man who will stop at nothing to regain his title – even if it means sacrificing her innocence?
There's always a certain apprehension that comes with reading a part of a series, especially if you have not been following it faithfully since the beginning. Luckily, the is not an issue if one decides to read To Desire a Devil. If anything, after reading this book, the reader will find themselves avidly searching for the first three installments, anxiously trying to discover what happened to those characters we've grown to care for in this book. I enjoyed how Ms. Hoyt used the legend of Longsword, giving hints of his torment to connect not only each chapter and Reynaud's past, but also to introduce the present with all of its mysteries and conspiracies.
Adding to the overall suspense and outstanding plot, is Ms. Hoyt's phenomenal ability to convey the emotions of her characters and the situations involved. Her writing style is so beautifully fluid, from the beginning with Reyaud's surprise appearance to the end with it's equally surprising conclusion. Everything about To Desire a Devil encourages readers to fall in love with these characters, even when they are behaving badly. I loved the chemistry between Reynaud and Beatrice, and their reluctance to give in to their attraction. I also enjoyed how Ms. Hoyt slowly builds that tension while adding layers to the danger shadowing Reynaud as well. This is a charming romance, exciting to read with its added elements of treason, stolen identity and murder all added together. Definitely a book that deserves it's place on any keeper shelf.
