Enthralling Sequel to DEVIL’S EMBRACE!

Set in 1803 in the Mediterranean, this is the sequel to DEVIL'S EMBRACE (to which I also gave 5 stars), and tells the story of Adam and Arabella Welles, the children of Cassie and Anthony Welles. Equally intense and equally well written as DEVIL'S EMBRACE, this is a page-turner that will keep you reading late into the night. I am in awe at how well Coulter has done this duology. Simply marvelous.

Arabella Wells is an independent, strong-willed young woman who...more

Recommends it for: fans of spirited heroines
I've read enough Coulter novels for her stories to be pretty predictable at this point. As usual, the writing was great, but I had a little trouble getting into the story. I've owned this book for over six months now and couldn't quite pick it up because some of it is set in a Muslim harem, which for me is about as far from an appealing romance novel setting as possible.

There are two romances in the novel: Adam's and Arabella's, the children of Clare and Cassandra from Devil's Embrace. It is the...more
Aly is so frigging bored
Color me surprised, there wasn't that much bodice ripping in this one. We still had an abduction and all the trappings, but there was no rape... Wow, that sounded so weird :)) I am happy that the heroine wasn't raped, what does that say of me?!

I finished this book in 2 days...would have been shorter if only I didn't require sleep! I'm giving it a 4 instead of the 5 I gave Devil's Embrace because it did start off a little slow, but if you hang in there it's worth it. I loved seeing all the characters from Devil's Embrace come out to play again, and Cassie and Anthony's kids were fun characters. Adam and Rayna have great chemistry and I would have loved to read more about them. Arabella, of course, despises Kamal until shortly before th...more
I enjoyed most of this book...well-written in most respects but the hero was not heroic enough. I kept waiting for him to get his a$$ kicked by Anthony. *** SPOILER ***
Am I the only one that caught the part where, before he has Arabella whipped, she sees one of the young girls in the harem starting to show a pregnancy but it can only be Kamal's as he has been at the harem for something like 6mos and using the concubines for his pleasure...the Western world part of me told me that there was all s...more
♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme
This is a two for one - daughter and son of the first book, Devil's Embrace. Anthony and Cassie (Cassandra) have their boy and girl. In this one, we keep the theme of kidnapping and dub/non-con sex for the girl. Arabella is now abducted and in a Harem. The reason why is really a blast from the past of her parents.

Sins of the fathers fall on their...daughters? Fortunately Kamal is not as expected. Kind of hot and smexy, actually and I enjoyed him. This is yet again not really BDSM but kind of ki...more
Not as bad as the first book, Devil's Embrace, but that sure doesn't mean it was good.
This was the novel that introduced me to good historical romance. I've read it countless times. Now that I'm older, I do see its flaws - but it is hard to find well-written romance novels, and this is one of them. I like this novel so much I have two copies - both the original print and the revised edition (I favor the original). I find it is hard for me to read other romance authors because Catherine Coulter has set the bar so high.

I love this story - set in northern Africa and parts of Europe....more

Adam and Reyna. Arabella and Kamal. Two star crossed couples whose very lives are intertwined from the moment of their births. In the book Devil's Embrace, Cassi and Anthony, parents of Adam and Arabella, left behind two very disgruntled former loves when they hooked up. One of them can really hold a grudge, a very nasty grudge. The book is very good and I enjoyed it a lot more than Devil's Embrace. It is a tangled plot about obsession, vengence, honor and a look at how different a culture the m...more

The whole book focused on both Arabella and Adam, the children of Cassie Brougham and Anthony Welles from Devil's Embrace of the same author. They have their own struggles, adventures, and romance.

The story of Arabella and Kamal somewhat reminded me of Silver Angel by Johanna Lindsey. And a few or one scene from The Conqueror by Brenda Joyce. It's just awkward to me since Ive read the other two first.

All in all, Devil's Daughter was a fun read. fast paced and entertaining.
The is a two in one romance. Arabella and Adam. The Devil books are probably the most well loved CC stories. While the setting is mostly unique, nothing else really is.
This is the daughter of the Devils embrace. This story was another unique tale. I enjoy books involving sheihks. Their HEA is so sweet.

For being a mindless romance novel, this had a surprisingly good and in depth plot.
