Book Review: Farrah Loves TEMPTING A DEVIL by Samantha Kane! Stop by & see why
Another great book the this series! Tempting a Devil was a wonderful historical romance. It was perfect, brilliant, fantastic! Loved it!
Samantha Kane had a gift creating unique historical romances. This book definitely didn’t lack in originality. A desperate widow trying to ruin herself with a rake that just discovered his morals in order to avoid the man who wants to trap her in a marriage (and there’s a whole other story going on there). This story took me on a wild ride and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Harriet was a great heroine. She was absolutely hilarious. She’s a little impulsive and definitely vivacious and she tended to be a little outrageous, especially when she was trying to get somethings she wants. It led to some funny moment that had me laughing out loud. I liked that she didn’t apologize for who she was, both the outrageous part of her and the part that had to endure a terrible husband for financial security, even if it led to her being seen as “Lady Mercenary.” And I appreciated how determined she was to protect her little son (who was really adorable). Overall, a thoroughly likable, memorable heroine. She’s definitely on my list of favorite romance heroines.
Roger was just as amazing. He might have been a rake in the past, but when it comes to the woman he knew in his childhood, his long-buried morals surface, turning him into an unexpected heroine. I thought that was both really cute and somewhat aggravating on his part. Cute, because who doesn’t love a gentleman? And aggravating because, seriously, you chose to scrape together scruples NOW? But, he was wonderful. So sweet and determined to protect the woman he loves. I adored him.
The romance was a perfect mix of sweet and spicy. There was one hell of an attraction between them from their first meeting in the book, when they don’t recognize each other yet. The sparks between them were constant and very hot when they ignited. They were also genuinely sweet together. Neither intended on love and balked from marriage. But, they fell anyway and it was so sweet to see. I thought it was adorable how, once Roger realized he loved Harriet, he was willing to literally wait years of asking her to marry him, since he knew that she had a wariness of marriage-don’t worry, it doesn’t take that long
I loved seeing the other devils again. Alasdair, now happily married. Hil, who is still solving mysteries better than Sherlock Holmes. And Wiley, still ridiculously handsome and making hilariously accurate comments. I can’t wait to read the next books in the series and see the other devils’ stories. This series is fast becoming my favorite historical romance series.
The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were thrills and secrets that kept me on the edge of my seat. And the ending was brilliant. Can’t wait to read more of this series!
Tempting a Devil was a magnificent historical romance. I absolutely adored it! If you want a top notch historical romance, you definitely need to read this book. Absolutely perfect!
“Tempting a Devil is a sexy, scandalous story that had me turning page after page, just so I could read more of the witty banter, smart dialogue and emotion that Samantha Kane puts forth.”—Lydia Dare, bestselling author of Wolfishly Yours
About the reviewer – Farrah:
Hello, book lovers!
My name is Farrah and I’ve always loved to read. And I love to talk about books, so writing a review blog became an obvious choice. My absolute favorite things are reading and Ancient Egypt. I live in a suburb outside of Orlando, Florida. And, yes, that means I live right next to all those theme parks
I’m currently working on an English degree at the Burnett Honors College of the University of Central Florida. And I hope to work in book publishing.
The Imagine a World blog is a blog where I review and feature the romance books I’ve read in any genre, YA or adult. For those who wonder why my URL is “the golden rule of 666,” no, it doesn’t have anything to do with the devil. My first, middle, and last name are all comprised of 6 letters. When I finally realized that a couple of years ago, I thought it was hilarious, so I made it my blog URL when I created Imagine a World.
