The Devil's Match by Victoria Vane

This final, delicious novella picks right up after The Virgin Huntress with Lady Diana confronting her former lover, the devil himself, Lord DeVere.  With her goddaughter missing she knows that DeVere, her goddaughter godfather, surely had something to do with it and she walks into his den of pleasure and all the buried feelings between them, fire right back up.  However as DeVere broke Diana's heart, she has no interest in letting him back into her life or her matter how she yearns to.  Diana wants more from him and DeVere has a checkered past that he refuses to let continue on with him and refuses to marry and have an heir, so they seem to come to an impasse... until a wager gives Diana the idea to show DeVere some sensual tricks she has recently learned.  Hoping to finally bring him to his knees, will he turn the tables on her and leave her shattered again or can this couple find long awaited happiness together?

Victoria Vane has written and delivered a delightful series and The Devil's Match is the perfect conclusion to this group (she did announce there is more to come next year!).  There has been build up in the previous stories for what will happen between Diana and DeVere and I am so happy it ended so wonderfully!   I wasn't sure about Diana in the beginning of the series but as she was revealed I really grew to like her and want her to have the happy ending she so deserved after a loveless marriage.  As for the DeVere, underneath his rakish, devil may care attitude, is a strong heart that loves very deeply within a protective nature.  He didn't have the best childhood and he wants to stay away from repeating the same mistakes.  But when he realizes the truth of his heart, his promise to his brother holds his steadfast and almost costs him everything.  I so loved seeing more real depth to DeVere and made his love for Diana all the more real for me.  The added return of all the previous characters from the previous stories add a wonderful balance.  If you have not read this series yet--what are you waiting for?  It is filled with sizzling passion, heartbreak, humor and triumph and is a must read for all romance fans.  A Devil's Match has all that written within the scrumptious Georgian setting and with Ms Vane's trademark eye for detail that make her stories come alive. I devoured this latest installment and am so excited she announced she is writing more in this series!  4 1/2 stars
