I have just finished reading this book for the second time. The first time was 3 years ago, when it came out. I didn't know it was part of a series then, but nevertheless, enjoyed it. Recently, I picked up "My Lady Notorious" and "Tempting Fortune", and of course, I had to re-visit "Devilish". I enjoyed it even more than the first time, if that is possible.
Rothgar is one of the most compelling heroes I have ever found, and Diana was clearly, his perfect mate. The story was heart wrenching, deep, dark and passionate, filled with longing and unfulfilled and consuming desire.
I do have some complains, though. Some other reviewers have mentioned this, and I join them in the opinion that the book needed at least one more love scene or at least more kisses and passionate interludes. The court intrigues were interesting, but should not take precedence over the love story.
Another thing is, I'm confused about Bey's age. In previous books it was stablished that he was about 36 (in my Lady Notorious is said that he is 12 years older than 24 year old Cyn, and in Tempting Fortune he is 6 years older than Bryght), by that math, in this book he should be 37 or 38 years old, since almost 2 years have passed since Cyn's story, however, in this book there is a part in which Diana sees a picture of him and Bryght as children, Bryght is a toddler and Bey is a 5 year old boy, therefore, Rothgar could not be more than 4 years older than Bryght. I know this is not a big deal and in no way takes away from the story, but it is a detail I noticed and confused me.
I also struggled a little with the duel scene at the beginning of the book. I really detest violence and killing.

Finally Rothgar meets his match in Book 5 of the Malloren Series.
Taking Diana Westmount, the Countess of Arradale, to London under the command of the King. Rothgar who has fought demons with the murder of his baby sister by his mother, has controlled himself in the effort to not carry on the insanity bloodlines he believes runs through him. However, he is unable to resist Diana, a strong female character almost unheard of Georgian England at this time.
Diana, the cousin of Rosamunde (Book 4 � SECRETS OF THE NIGHT) is introduced in Book 4, while we have known Rothgar from Book 1. He is the force behind the Malloren Family and to read the story that goes with the man finally is great fun.
This book might be classified as an anti-climax in some respects. Now, Jo Beverley is a masterful writer and all her books are outstanding. DEVILISH however was an almost dreaded read. Could this be that the reader places Rothgar on a pedestal like a hovering mother, and disapproves of all matches? Could this be because it seems to signify the end of the Malloren series? Not to worry�Jo Beverley will release WINTER OF FIRE this fall to the relief of many fans I�m sure.
If you like spicy Georgian-era romances, there is no one who writes these better than Jo Beverley. Strong advisement is to start with Book 1 though, not Book 5.
Long live the Mallorens!

This was a fantastic, mature, intellegent story. Bey and Diana were a perfect match. It was erotic, sensual, and seductive. Don't miss out on this one. Rothgar is to die for! And, if I was a guy, I would say Diana was to die for! I love these straight forward kind of characters. No game playing. Jo Beverley has proven to be and excellent author who writes at a level that a mature woman can enjoy. THANKS!

I was slightly disappointed. After reading all the little bits about Bey in the previous books I guess I built myself up for something more. I liked Diana, she was one of the best heroines in the Malloren books. She recognized the time to be frugal with her unconventional character which represents a true to life heroine. And given her aversion to taking a lover prior to Bey her willingness to be with him was believable. But as for Bey, I liked him, but I was expecting something a little more ruthless or maybe just more aloof. He fell so easily for Diana. But I still rate the book high because Beverley had everything add up: the amelioration of the family burden for Bey, the King's insistance on a marriage for Diana, Bey's protective character. I think the biggest let down was the fact that Bey was cool even when Diana had been kidnapped and abused so badly. I just felt like his control should have slipped a little more prior to the capitulation. But it was still a great read and held me the whole time.

Hmmm... well, I think I have myself built up so much for Rothgar's story that I expected way too much. If you've read the first books of this series, you probably know what I mean... I REALLY had myself built up for this story! Rothgar himself was a prime example of the male of our species.... the story let me down. It was a pretty romance - but the romance could have been done in half the pages. There was way too much 'he thought about her..... she thought about him....' - it got really old. It moved at a snails pace due to this fact. The plots in the other books had more depth and moved much faster.
