The Virgin Huntress is the second book in Victoria Vane’s The Devil DeVere series and another fun, sexy romp through Georgian England!
Desperate times call for devilish measures…This story begins right on the heels of the first book, A Wild Night's Bride, and is written with the same detail to period dialog, dress and social routines and rituals which is one of the things I most love about Ms. Vane's stories. I found myself laughing at some of the situations Hew was caught in, thanks to Lady Vesta's plotting, while on the other hand there were times I found myself not liking her so much because of the plotting. What can I say? I'm forever on the side of hero and Hew is one sexy man!
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 she is no longer a little girl, but a woman with the passion of… a huntress.
The bottom line: I always enjoy Victoria Vane’s tales. Her characters are funny, sexy, and sometimes too full of themselves for their own good! But one thing we can be sure of, they’re always entertaining!
