Erotic Historical Romance
Desperate times call for devilish measures… when the object of one’s passion has eyes for another… it’s time to take matters in hand!
Lady Vesta Chambers is accustomed to getting what she wants…Coddled and pampered, since her mother’s death, Lady Vesta Chambers is beside herself when her father goes to London to prepare for her come-out and returns with a young bride of his own. With her world turned upside down, Vesta accompanies her godmother, Diana, to town, where she is smitten the moment she lays eyes on a certain captain of the Seventeenth Light Dragoons.
But when the object of her passion has eyes for another…
Captain Hewett DeVere, younger brother and heir to Viscount Ludovic “The Devil” DeVere, has returned from the American war scarred, disillusioned, and looking forward to settling down to a quiet and respectable life. But when the handsome and straight-laced captain turns his eyes toward the widowed Diana, Vesta is prepared to take devilish measures to prove she is no longer a little girl, but a woman with the passion of …a huntress.
→ Opinion | Too fantastic to forget!
The Virgin Huntress is an eccentric and risky title, and just as adventurous as The Virgin Huntress.
This new sequel for The Devil DeVere series has a fun atmosphere of adventure. Hewett and Vesta are one of a kind, they make such a cute couple together! You get the feeling that they were truly meant to be, like they’d be lost and labeled as insane without one another!
Vesta got to my nerves far too many times, but in the end we get to see how she really is and start to cheer for a happy ending. In the beginning I didn’t know where the characters were going and their true intentions, but the book got more enjoyable, funny and absurd every page I’d turn. Still, I didn’t believe that the characters fell in so love that quickly and how Vesta just knew he’d be the one.
Overall, I was surprised by Victoria Vane’s bold and fun writing, always coming up with exciting details for her stories. I don’t even know what to expect from DeVere’s book!
I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
