A Wild Night's Bride by Victoria Vane

I have read a stretch of really good novellas lately and Victoria Vane's start to her new series, The Devil DeVere, is another winner!  (Recommended for readers 18 and older!)

Phoebe Scott dreams of being an actress and when one night she is finally given some lines, she is pleased.  She knows it can be the start but wishes it was something different than the tart Kitty Willis.  She acts the part perfectly and attracts the attention of some men and somehow finds herself attending a bawdy party in hopes of securing a protector.  While there she is drawn to Ned and is stunned to find herself drawn into an outrageous bet that involves her, Viscount Ludovic DeVere, the prince and the King of England's bed.  This all to the chagrin of Sir Edward Chambers who is most attracted to her as well, especially after three years of celibacy following his wife's death.  Ned is determined to protect her and hijinks ensure!  What follows is a delightfully fun romp that will have you laughing and then cranking up the fan at a few places!

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a well written novella that features two 'common' people that have sparks to spare!  The writing was excellent and made me feel like I was immersed in the Georgian time period.  It is fun, sexy and has heart to it.  We get a few glimpses into the upcoming books in this series and I am so eager to read them!  A very delightful, smoldering, delicious 4 1/2 stars

Thanks to Victoria Vane for providing me with an eARC of this book!
