Oh my goodness! Devil Takes a Bride is one of the best books I've read in quite some time. Gaelen Foley has done it again, with yet another engrossing installment in the Knight Miscellany series. Devil Takes a Bride has now become my favorite book in the series to date, and that's no easy task since all of them have rated 4-5 stars for me. Ms. Foley is masterful at painting word pictures that make me feel like I'm right there and part of the story. It was much like watchi

The story follows Lizzie and Devlin as they go through many ridiculous trials to finally be together. They meet when Lizzie writes a letter to Devlin telling him hat his aunt's health is failing, he shows up to find that she is lying to him. They have a quick connection early in the story, but he returns to London on his quest of revenge, leaving Lizzie behind. They meet again when his aunt dies, but he expresses no desire to forge a relationship with her until circumstances force his hand.

I liked this book, but I doubt I'd ever reread it and I did think it too long.

The heroine, Lizzie, I liked her quite a bit, she was a bluestocking (the horror!) and didn't take any crap from males. She was the only one who stood up to Devlin and called him on his negligent behavior towards his aunt. She continued to keep him on his toes throughout the book, not letting him be a worthless dandy. I appreciated that she wasn't wooed by money and didn't fall for the silly platitudes spouted by unrel

She made him want to shake off the chains of the past, give up the awful burden of hate; she made him want to live, and be happy.

An enjoyable HR with lots of intrigue.

Twelve years ago Devlin Kimball, Lord Strathmore’s, family died in a tragic fire in an inn on their way to his school after he got into a fight. For all these years he has lived with the guilt of being the reason his family was at that inn on that fateful day, spending his years having adventures at sea, trying to find peace, b

Devlin ‘Devil’ Kimball (Lord Strathmore) is a knee tremblingly sexy male who was determined to discover who had killed his parents and little sister. During his investigations he has to associate with some very ugly and unsavoury men and become one of their selective and secretive group.

Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Carlisle, the ward of Robert Knight (Duke of Hawscliffe), was orphaned at a very early age and grew up in the Knight household. Lizzie was very close friends and companion to young Jacinda Knig

LMAO SOOO I STARTED THIS LAST NIGHT AND THEN I STAYED UP TILL 2 AM FINISHING IT AND DIDN'T BOTHER TO MAKE UPDATES SINCE I WAS SO IMMERSED IN IT!!!


First, in my opinion the plot and romance in this were not as nuanced as it was in the first book, which is the only other one in the series I have read so far. It was however, very sweet and a good, exciting book that I couldn't put down, albeit flawed.

Here's a lil plot recap

Devil Takes a Bride is yet another engrossing installment in the Knight Miscellany series by Gaelen Foley. It's by large the most underrated books of the series and I have no idea why.
Where do I start? Devil Takes a Bride has just about everything I could ask for in a book. It has a thoroughly likeable/relatable heroine,a swoon worthy hero that you wish wasn't fictional, dastardly villains, suspense, a tiny love triangle(but come on, we know who Lizzie is goin

I have been slowly but surely working my way through the "Knight Miscellany" series, and it just so happens that I enjoyed the books in the same order they were written with the Duke being my favorite, Lord of Fire my second favorite so on and so forth...that is until this one.

I have to be honest, I was beginning to question Gaelen Foley after her last installment (Lady of Desire) which I did not care for at all, but boy did she redeem herself with this one! What makes this book for me is Lizzi

It was wonderful to visit the Knight family again! Even though Lizzie never felt like more than the ward she was or maybe a poor relation, they were all she had and they loved her. But she never felt like she fit in, a feeling I understand too well. She had sworn off men and love and resigned herself to spinsterhood after finally giving up on her childhood crush, Alec Knight. Devlin truly earned the nickname Devil in the years after his family were killed. His grief led him into behav

Another four and a half star read from The Knights Miscellany series.
I wasn't sure how splitting up Lord Alec and Lizzie would pan out but I loved the pairing of the compassionate bluestocking, Elizabeth Carlisle and the damaged rake, Devlin "Devil Strathmore" Kimball on a path of vengeance to avenge his murdered family. Although a longer book at 469 pages, Gaelen Foley did a superb job of combining the mystery part of the story with the growing relationship between Dev and Lizzie and I was riv

I think I am giving up on Gaelen Foley. I like her characters and writing but I am almost always bored with her stories.

No rating because I read 50% of the book only. I couldn't make myself continue.

Gaelen Foley is an author who inspires so much ambivalence in me. While reading one of her books I will move from disgust to disbelief to resignation to pleasure to frustration and more. Some parts of her books are really good. Then the heroine does a doormat or TSTL move and I think: it's all over, red rover. I read on and lo! The hero stops being a dick long enough for me to start to like him, and I am engaged again.
That pretty much summed up my feelings about this one, #5 from the Knight Mis

Oh man. Am I the only one that does not like this book? Because it certainly seems like it with all the 4/5 star reviews floating around. I'm being quite gracious and giving this an actual rating of 1.5 stars.

I don't....hate it, per se, so it still gets the 0.5 star. I did prefer some of the other books in the series. I mean, I've read worse books. This one just makes me feel like DNF-ing rather than feeling like I need to tear out my hair and erase its memory from my mind. Still, that places it

Ok as a library book, but I don't recommend buying it.

There was nothing special about it. Nothing surprised or delighted me. If readers liked the other books in the series, then they might enjoy it. It was a nice story with nice characters but too predictable. In 1805, bad guys locked people inside an inn and burned it causing the deaths of Devlin's family. Twelve years later he goes undercover, pretending to be like the bad guys, drinking, gambling, etc. He wants to learn who killed his family

Good Points: I like that Foley addressed that Lizzie and Devlin were both people who were terrified of love because they were terrified of loss. That's something a lot of people can relate to. Lizzie holes herself up in Mrs Hall's Academy, Devlin maintains an image of a notorious rakehell.

Not so good: This book took kind of a while to get off. I think Lizzie and Devlin were both decent characters but the murder subplot of Dev's parents ONLY really interested me in the last act and it

The fifth book of the series. Honestly, I have not yet read other books after the The Duke. I am so curious about Lizzie's story that I jumped on her story. Well anyway, it is a good thing that it can be read as a stand alone.

I loved the book. I am such a fool for bluestocking ladies. I can't help but admire their characters and how did they captured their hero.

Well, I'm not much one for romance novels; but as far as entertainment value goes, this was pretty entertaining.

I don't like romance novels because they are always cliches. There's not an original romance novel out there. Plus I get so sick of the simpering female leads, the pompous, way too self-assure and angsty male leads.

But I gave this four stars, didn't I?

Overall, the story wasn't too bad. I felt that the writing was pretty good. I liked the setting of the story, the era.

This is the fifth book in the Knights Miscellaney series of Gaelen Foley. This book focuses on Liz Carlisle, who is technically not really a member of the Knight Family, but more or less is, because after becoming an orphan, she was raised with Jacinda Knight (the youngest Knight sibling featured in Lady of Desire). While I question why Liz's story was even included in this series, I can see that given Alex Knight (the youngest Knight brother) is featured and the events here continues his story ...more

Now we come to Elisabeth Carlisle's story. She was ward to Robert Knight the Duke of Hawkscliffe as a companion to his little sister Jacinda. Since she was 9 years old she has idolized Alec Knight, Jacinda's brother. The book prior to this fills you in on his lost ways. As much as I loved Alec in One Night of Sin in this book and in the one prior I hated him. What he does to our poor Lizzie is unforgivable. But let me start from the beginning. When Jacinda gets married to her Billy Lizzie knows ...more
