"After seven years in hellish captivity, Raynaud St. Aubyn busts into his ancestral home half mad with fever, demanding his due. Can this wild man truly be the last earl's son, thought murdered by Indians? Beatrice Corning is the niece of the present earl and a proper English miss. Yet she has a secret: No real man has ever excited her more than the handsome youth in a certain portrait. Now, suddenly, he's here, in the flesh--and luring her into his bed. Only Beatrice can see past Reynaud's savage ways to the noble man inside. And Raynaud is drawn to this lovely lady, even as her loyalty to her uncle raises his suspicions. But can she tame a man who will stop at nothing to regain his title--even if it means sacrificing her innocence?"--Cover verso.… (meer)

The story between the two main characters just didn't capture me as well of others in Hoyt's books. ( )
  emsue88 | Nov 19, 2019 |
The flashback Reynaud has of his capture in America is crazy, you feel so bad for him. Reynaud is turning out to be a crazy complex interesting character.
 
***Seether song "Broken" really fits the character of Reynaud. I keep hearing it in the background.***
 
Oh sad, the character of Jeremy is heartbreaking!There were some great secondary characters, like Beatrice's friend Lottie. At the beginning I liked the extra storyline of Lottie and the problems she was having with her hubby but the author didn't flush it out enough at the end to warrant the time these secondary characters took away from Reynaud and Beatrice.
 
I definitely felt there was more chemistry between Reynaud and Beatrice than previous couples in this series and yes it made for a better story. Chemistry between characters is a must I say!
 
Reynaud turned out to be my favorite hero from this series, what can I say I luv dark characters. It kept giving me shivers when Reynaud would say "Not yet." and "You are mine". If you read the book ladies you'll know what I'm talking about. ;)
 
I was a little bit disappointed in Reynaud and Beatrice's courtship. I know I said they had good chemistry but still why did they get together again?The author's writing seemed stronger to me in this book. The scene where Reynaud and Beatrice are eating at the dinner table and Reynaud says "Come closer" I grinned. Then Beatrice invites Reynaud upstairs and tells the maid "Be sure you don't see anything in the hall" I shivered. And then Reynaud telling Beatrice to undress him, my toes curled. Powerful couple of pages, will definitely be a scene I remember for a long time.
 
Well the whole traitor storyline continued here from the previous books in the series finally came to an end, I had the traitor picked out :), was eh satisfactory. I frankly got a little tired of the whole fiasco as at the end of each book the traitor was found then oops no not found.
 
"To Desire a Devil" was my favorite of the series. Pretty strong series all around and I would for sure recommend it. But all the relationships were lacking for me. There was so much more to the storyline (finding a traitor) that the how's and why's of the main characters coming together and falling in love was lost at times. So much going on it just felt like the author was scratching the surface on relationships. Why are these two people coming together? I need to feel and understand this question for a story to resonate with me.
 
Oh and Rebecca and O'Hare (Samuel's sister and footman from book 1) who were previously ignored for 3 books was FINALLY mentioned. I was given 3 measly lines to know there is going to be, hopefully, a happy ending for them. ( )

To Desire a Devil
5 Stars

Held captive in the Colonies for seven years, Reynaud St. Aubyn finally escapes and makes his way home to England only to learn that his title, home and money have been bestowed on a distant relative in his absence. Scarred and tortured, Reynaud will do everything and anything in his power to regain his birthright but the traitor responsible for the attack on his regiment has other plans.

An excellent resolution to the series. Beatrice and Reynaud relationship is physically and emotionally intense, and the revelation of the traitor’s identity is satisfying as is the final confrontation with him.

Reynaud is a profoundly damaged man even more so than the other heroes in the series. Given the extent of his suffering, it is amazing that he has managed to retain even a semblance of humanity and sanity. The fact that he has makes him all the more endearing despite his violent outbursts of PTSD.

Beatrice is not only intelligent and independent, she is clever enough to live her life to the fullest within the constraints of society’s norms. Thus, she engages in political debate, cares for a disabled friend and braves her uncle’s wrath by accepting Reynaud without reservation.

Another wonderful element of the story is that all the characters from previous installments finally come together in the search for the elusive traitor of Spinner’s Falls, and although the culprit can be guessed at by following the clues, it is not too so obvious as the undermine the mystery.

In sum, The Legend of the Four Soldiers is well written with a compelling story arc and captivating characters. It is bittersweet to be completing the series but I look forward to reading more of Elizabeth Hoyt’s books. ( )

I liked this book better than the last one, but still not as much as EH's other books. Partly because of the heroine - whom I didn't really get to know - and partly because of the lack of insight into the hero's thoughts and his - very sudden - change of heart /attitude at the end. ( )

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, I have to admit. I started reading it to get it read and get the review done, I'm in one of those phases, thank goodness they only last a day or so, anyway...I started to read it and about 2 chapters in, I was hooked. The book has wonderful character development, great plot-in movement and drama, steamy romance, raw emotion, and my personal favorite, excellent vocabulary. The characters are what draw you into the story, it starts with such a young (-ish for the time period) women who is wrestling with her mind about her age and naivety, but she is strong and an excellent heroine and complement to the wild and untamed Lord Hope. The plot was excellent, it progressed quickly, there were no awkward -move along- moments and there were balls, guns, Indians, royalty, and even a fairy tale. I will also say that there were a couple of moments I actually teared up, it was so sad, and I don't tear up very often. To conclude: Elizabeth Hoyt also has excellent vocabulary, I can't remember the last time I had to bust out the dictionary (ok, it was Google) and look up a word...it was great! Also, I love that Ms. Hoyt used the actual term for a certain part of a male anatomy ;) it was refreshing and surprisingly erotic. I very much enjoyed this book. I hope everyone else does as well.
