DEVERE VIGNETTES #1

Official Blurb

Every devil has a beginning…
A rebellious young nobleman’s prank with the king’s lion goes comically awry, leading to a startling chain of events.

A riotous Georgian romp in the tradition of Fielding’s Tom Jones and a prequel to the Devil DeVere series.
**This title is NOT a romance**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take Heart! An announcement for all those readers suffering from a severe case of DeVere deprivation….he’s back!

This time, as the title suggests, the story centres on the nineteen year old Devere and his close friends, Ned Chambers (A Wild Night’s Bride) and Simon Singleton (hero of the forthcoming Jewel of the East).

DeVere definitely shows all the promise of the arrogant, irreverent, scandalous and devious rogue so adored by all the devotees of the Devil Devere series. Mischief and mayhem follow in their wake as he involves his friends in some hilarious shenanigans involving:

Not only…

But also…

Not to mention a…

And a…

I’m not sure how Ms Vane does it, but there’s real depth to DeVere’s character despite the constraints of this short story. Meeting his father and mother, we get an insight into the family dynamics that must have had a profound influence in shaping the man he became. There are also glimpses of those admirable qualities he has always sought to conceal; his generosity, his deep loyalty to his friends and his personal code of honour.

Although not a romance, Devil in the Making is a MUST-READ for all fans of The Devil DeVere series. It’s uproariously entertaining, wickedly bawdy and comes with a heavenly dose of the mouth-watering Devere!!

RATING: ★★★★★

My sincere thanks to Victoria Vane for providing me with a copy of Devil in the Making in return for an honest review.
