Book #3 in The Devil DeVere Series – Library Journal Best E-book Romance 2012
Sometimes the devil is disguised as a gentleman...
In this third installment of the award-winning Devil DeVere series, DeVere is finally center stage when Ned, Annalee, and her cousin, Diana arrive at DeVere’s estate for a weekend of horseracing. From the first meeting, DeVere makes his interest in Diana acutely known. Although she sees no harm in a light flirtation, she doesn’t intend to become another notch on his bedpost. Nevertheless, DeVere fascinates her.
Ned gave her a meaningful look. "I hope you'll take extreme care in any dealings with him. He is ruthless and calculating when he chooses to be and has a strong predilection to manipulate and exploit the vulnerabilities of others—when it suits his purpose. He just can't help himself. It's not that he's evil incarnate, or anything like that; it's just that he has low tolerance for weakness, incompetence, or buffoonery." Diana lifted her brow. "You know I am no fool, dear Edward. I take full responsibility for my actions and have already made clear what I am willing and not willing to sacrifice."
Although DeVere is outwardly arrogant, ruthless, unpredictable, and manipulative, the private man is quite another creature—intensely loyal and fiercely protective of those few he cares about. Diana also maintains a false front to the world. Her twelve year marriage is a mockery and she feels unfulfilled and undesirable which makes her all too vulnerable to DeVere’s dangerous charm. After events take an unexpected turn, Diana' most erotic fantasies become reality when she seeks comfort and affirmation in the devil's arms. But little does she know that the fire he ignites within her will burn long after she leaves Woodcote Park.

Well it was short - but boy did it pack a lot in
Victoria Vane does it again...just delicious!
The story is excellent and even though I've read the book, to hear it on audio is wonderful new way experience this amazing book!
Hands down DeVere! He is the “Rico Suave” of his time. He’s charming, shrewd, debauched and quite honorable when need be, although the thought of that makes him cringe! He’s also shamelessly amusing and more than once his thoughts and words had me laughing out loud.
Too many to name, but when DeVere lays his lovin' on Diana...my ears nearly burned to a crisp!
Victoria Vane’s writing is like the finest of chocolates. It melts in your mouth, it consumes you as you enjoy its sinful decadence, and long after it’s gone it stays with you. Just delicious!! The Devil You Know is beautifully done and depicts the Georgian time period both in setting and superbly crafted words, which is fast becoming the author’s trademark. The intimacy that ensues between DeVere and Diana left me breathless; it’s naughty, sexy and passionate. The book is also filled with witty dialogue, and although this is a novella, it’s a substantial story. The ending leads us and teases us right into the next book. I can hardly wait!!
