Legend of the Four Soldiers, Book 4

From the Publisher

Reynaud St. Aubyn has spent the last seven years in hellish captivity. Now half mad with fever he bursts into his ancestral home and demands his due. Can this wild-looking man truly be the last earl’s heir, thought murdered by Indians years ago?

Beatrice Corning, the niece of the present earl, is a proper English miss. But she has a secret: No real man has ever excited her more than the handsome youth in the portrait in her uncle’s home. Suddenly, that very man is here, in the flesh-and luring her into his bed.

Only Beatrice can see past Reynaud’s savagery to the noble man inside. For his part, Reynaud is drawn to this lovely lady, even as he is suspicious of her loyalty to her uncle. But can Beatrice’s love tame a man who will stop at nothing to regain his title-even if it means sacrificing her innocence?

TO DESIRE A DEVIL is a historical romance that has such a fascinating plot you’ll be eagerly turning pages. I will admit that while this is part of a series and I do think readers will benefit from reading the first 3 stories, I missed at least one of them and still found TO DESIRE A DEVIL amazingly enjoyable. There is a touch of mystery, but the main focus is more on Reynaud and his struggle to regain his life after being captured and left for dead during a military campaign. There are a few moments I’d suggest you have a tissue handy, but there is also plenty of heat. I truly hate for this series to end. I’d love to revisit all of these characters in the future, maybe stories about their children. Fans of great historical romances need to add TO DESIRE A DEVIL to their to buy list today! It’s a story you don’t want to miss. I’d highly recommend TO DESIRE A DEVIL, you will certainly understand that desire after reading this story!
