A Wild Night's Bride by Victoria Vane
Publisher: Breathless Press (April 25, 2012)
Series: The Devil DeVere, 1
Genre: Historical Romance
What happens when a struggling actress and a grieving widower come together in a night of unbridled debauchery orchestrated by a bored and machinating rake? With the devil in charge...there will be hell to pay!
She’s a lonely lady down on her luck... Phoebe Scott, alias Kitty Willis, is a struggling Covent Garden actress with a bruised heart and a closely guarded secret.
He’s steadfast and eminently respectable.. Sir Edward Chambers, Ned to his intimates, is guilt-ridden over his beloved wife’s death and avowed to live out a rustic and mundane life … of celibacy.
With the devil in charge — there will surely be hell to pay. Devil in disguise, Viscount Ludovic DeVere, is determined to return his best friend, Ned, to the land of the living. His meddling machinations result in a night of mind blowing passion after which “dull dog Ned” awakes to find himself in the King of England’s bed!
Where to Buy*:
A Wild Night's Bride is a quick historical romp, one filled with scandal and wagers.
I had a few doubts about the way Phoebe went about to get a protector, as well as Ned's failure to remember anything about their night together (although he knows he loves her), but overall I still really liked this book. I look forward to the rest of the series, curious to see how some of the other characters' stories turn out.
Random Rant---It didn't really hit me until the very end of the book, but Phoebe is only 4 years older than Ned's daughter. That's just...wrong, in my opinion. Or perhaps “odd” is the more accurate word. After realizing this, it changed my opinion on the couple a bit. That would make her (Phoebe), only a toddler when Ned married and had a child. And now they're married. o.0
3 STARS! Although I may not have loved this one, I still liked it; it was a quick read and I found it entertaining at times, what with all the scandals going on. If you want to try something a little different, pick this one up!

I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

I will still continue this series, it's kind of interesting the way so many of the characters' stories tie in. :)
