THE VIRGIN HUNTRESS -Book #2 in THE DEVIL DEVERE series by Victoria Vane
Desperate times call for devilish measures. When the object of one’s passion has eyes for another…it’s time to take matters in hand!
Lady Vesta Chambers is accustomed to getting what she wants…Coddled and pampered since her mother’s death, Lady Vesta Chambers is beside herself when her father goes to London to prepare for her come-out and returns with a young bride of his own. With her world turned upside down, Vesta accompanies her godmother, Diana, to town where she is smitten the moment she lays eyes on a certain captain of the Seventeenth Light Dragoons.
But when the object of her passion has eyes for another… Captain Hewett DeVere, younger brother and heir to Viscount Ludovic “The Devil” DeVere, has returned from the American war scarred, disillusioned, and looking forward to settling down to a quiet and respectable life. But when the handsome and straight-laced captain turns his eyes toward the widowed Diana, Vesta is prepared to take devilish measures to prove to Hew once and for all that she is no longer a little girl, but a woman with the passion of…a huntress.
Vesta is a spoiled brat who desperately needs to grow up. She pitches a fit when her widowed father gets remarried, she stomps her feet and sticks out her tongue, then she turns around and declares her undying love for a man whom she has barely met. Her methods of coercion are shocking, but her accomplice is none other than the devil himself, so what can one expect?
Hew is not your typical man. He is a war hero, but he has kept himself pure of body and heart because of the sins of his father. When a tiny harridan with scheming ways sets her sights on him, he has no way of knowing that his very own brother will aid her in her quest.
Ms. Vane has written a comical tale of a spoiled rich brat getting exactly what her heart desires. At least her new betrothed finds acceptance and joy in the deal. The characters are outside the norm for this type of story…both of them being virgins is a breath of fresh air for this genre. I love “the devil” DeVere and am looking forward to his story.
