In this fourth installment of the award-winning Devil DeVere series, Diana has come to London as her goddaughter's chaperone. Wanting to avoid her erstwhile lover at all costs, she nevertheless has no choice but to appeal to DeVere for help when Vesta mysteriously disappears. Although once nearly consumed by her passion for DeVere, four years has reduced the former inferno to bitterness and ashes.
Ludovic's time abroad has only served to deepen his debauchery. He's become jaded, world-weary, and bored. He also recognizes with self-annoyance that the marks of his discontent have only increased upon a certain person's arrival in London. When Diana makes her appearance in his den of iniquity in all of her glorious self-righteous fury, he suddenly feels alive again.
"Damn you to hell, DeVere!" she cried, jerking out of his hold. "Yes, I want you now, but I would despise myself for it the moment we finished." "Why?" he asked, confounded. "Why? Because I once confused passion for deeper feeling. I won't make that mistake again." "But don't you remember how it was between us? I can bring you rapture. You know that. What harm is there?" She scoffed, "Surely the same words the serpent whispered to Eve."
While DeVere is once more hell-bent to have Diana back in his bed, she will do whatever it takes to bring him to his knees.

A GEORGIAN ELEGANT DECADENT & TOUCHING LOVE STORY
This is the follow-on book to The Devil You Know about Diana and DeVere's tempestuous hot hot hot love affair - definately not a stand-alone listen.
In the first book I had every sympathy with DeVere as he was so painfully manipulated into the sad direction his life took. However, in the beginning of this second book, I didn't like the jaded, opium smoking, debauched rake he had become - that is until he meets Diana again and realises there's just no way of getting over her and we finally (and happily) see the ice around his heart slowly starts to melt.
The plot had lots of twists as the two embark in a battle of wits as the sexual fire they have for each other cannot be put out - but eventually Diana, who has learnt some new sexual massage tricks by an ex Harem woman, turns the tables on DeVere as she becomes the knowledgeable lover (....... or so she thinks). We learn that underneath all his bravado DeVere is just a hurt, misunderstood, passionate, damaged person who is so thoughtful and kind to the people he cares for and his heart is breaking for hers.
Worth a credit? A loveable cast of characters and clever writing makes this (and it's predecessor) an addictive listen that's short yes but it's filled with romantic, touching, passionate, hot hot hot hours and a worthy $10.46 listen (as so many of these short, often overlooked, stories are) but I wish VV had made these 2 books into 1 much longer listen.

WERE THERE NO !@#? EDITORS?????
This epilogue belongs to the next book since it gives away the entire story and goal of the story of the next book... or rather installment since it's sooooo short. If you don't intend to read the next then by all means finish this book. but if you do plan to read the next then perhaps wait, do NOT read/listen to the epilogue until AFTER finishing the next book.
I have to say that altho I have enjoyed each installment of this story, and will indeed go on to Simon and Salime's story when available,
I am utterly disgusted by the lack of editing and mixed up mess that's been made of a otherwise very enjoyable story. The inconsistencies in the order of the books, the order of characters appearances... while being gone in one book and alive again in the next (sorry, but no death in childbirth can later not have happened), and a cliffhanger of one book not addressed for three books... how much could a good editor really cost? It's as if a piece of the overall outline of the tale had been given to numerous authors and then published in whatever order they were completed with NO communication. It's that bad. No one author or editor could have made this much of a muddle of it.... I don't know how to untangle it for you since the bits that are in order would be disordered.... it's a muddle.
ABOUT THIS BOOK IT SELF!
It was very good. I totally enjoyed it! I had tears rolling down my cheeks at one point.... yes, all editor and order complaints aside I give it two thumbs up!
CREDIT WORTHY: pay for it, it costs less than a credit does.
HEAT FACTOR: Steamy YES! Implicitly emphatically irresistibly YES!
