Having previously read the first instalment (which was simply beautiful), I wasn't new to the House of Trent series and that's why I was so impatient to read this novella, to finally find out what kind of stories Lady Esme seems to be so fond of. She writes a lot but about what exactly? Well, let's just say that the introduction Jennifer Haymore puts before "The Devil's Pearl" begins is quite explanatory, funny and it makes you like Lady Esme even more!
Wrong assumptions lead to the dramatic separation of Devlin and Julia, once amazing lovers and now two heartbroken souls still in love with one another but not ready to admit it out loud. The lack of communication between the two of them clearly doesn't help their situation and surely the kidnapping of Julia makes things even harder... But a desperate man, hungry for answers and burning with desire, would try anything to take the woman he loves back, and Sir Devlin Vaughn has the perfect plan to succeed in this. Or so he thinks...
Fast, sensual and romantic. Oh Lady Esme, please let it not be the first and only time you let us read one of your stories and come back with more, we won't judge!
