The Virgin Huntress by Victoria Vane

Lady Vesta Chambers has had everything and anything she could every want and is floored when her father returns from London, where he was preparing for her coming out, with a young bride.  It brings her spoiledness to the for front and she is even more anxious to get to London and debut and be a young woman in society.  So when her Aunt Diana volunteers to take Vesta in her fathers place, Vesta is relieved.  After all, her godfather, Viscount DeVere, will be available to help her in any matter, should that need arise.  Upon riding early one morning, Vesta spots the man of her dreams and falls head over heels.  When it becomes know that this is her godfathers brother, she is ecstatic....only to become jealous of the attention he is paying her aunt!  Calling upon her godfather to help pull off a lavish undertaking to secure the heart of the dashing Captain Hewett DeVere, Hew does not stand a chance against Vesta.

The novella was pure fun!  Vesta was spoiled and childish at times but when she set her heart on something, she did whatever it took to secure it--even if it meant taking a drastic measure that will leave you going 'she didn't!'  And Hew turned out to be a delicious man with a surprise that made me love him all the more.  Falling for Vesta was not in his plans but when he does, he falls hard and gives her his whole heart in the most beautiful way!  Sigh.  As two polar opposites, Hew with his strength and steadfastness and Vesta with her petulant and impulsive nature, these two were sure to combust together and they certainly did!  Victoria Vane once again drew me into the Georgian time period with wonderful details to dialect, mannerism and surroundings.  Being a novella, I always want more and in this case I did as well.  I would have loved seeing Vesta and Hew butt heads longer but it still worked well with the length.  This novella made me laugh, sigh and spend a couple delicious hours away from reality to end with a smile on my face!  Highly recommended for fans of enjoyable, sexy, emotional, feel good stories!  I can not wait for more in this series!  4 1/2 stars

  1. This looks exactly like what I would love. Thanks for the review. Nothing like a sexy, steamy historical romance... Wheww.. is it HOT in here? or is it just me?? LOL

    1. Lol, I love steamy historicals and Victoria Vane certainly delivers :) A Wild Nights Bride was a bit steamier than this one but I didn't feel like this one lacked at all! Hope you enjoy! :)

  2. Love the review, =) and this def. goes right up on my TBR list,

    best wishes, Linda xo

    1. Thanks Linda! Thanks for stopping by as well :) I hope you get a chance to enjoy this one :)

  3. Thank you, Lisa for the lovely review!

    THE DEVIL DEVERE series was such an incredibly fun experience to write, as it allowed me to span the entire romantic spectrum in 4 erotic historical novellas that combine to read as one continuous story.

    A WILD NIGHT's BRIDE with its mad antics lives up to its name, and I loved the hilarity and explosively passionate pairing of opposites with Hew and Vesta in THE VIRGIN HUNTRESS.

    Books three and four (THE DEVIL YOU KNOW and THE DEVIL'S MATCH) will change tone completely to become dark and intensely erotic with the 2 part story of Diana and DeVere.

    I hope you will all check out the excerpts to all four stories on my web site at

    Warmest regards,

    1. I can't wait for Diana and DeVere's story!!
