Title: Devil In My Arms
One by one, the Saint’s Devils - Samantha Kane’s wicked, wonderful Regency heroes - continue to enchant the women who capture their rakish hearts.
Even though she is starving and destitute, Eleanor Enderby’s quiet beauty strikes Sir Hilary St. John speechless. He expects the woman he’s searching for to be skittish and plain. Instead he finds the picture of bravery - and willfulness - in his quarry. She gives away little, but Hil can see something is terribly amiss. And though he cannot say exactly why, he is determined not to let her come to more harm than whatever it is she has already survived.
Six months later, Eleanor believes she has finally found safety from the tyrant she risked her life to escape. Thought to be dead by society, Eleanor is ready to be reborn as someone new - someone whose life will never again be tied to the fate of one man. But her smoldering savior seems unwilling to leave her unprotected for an instant. Despite the threats he thinks he sees coming, the real dangers Eleanor faces in Hil's arms are unmistakable: temptation, seduction, and maybe even love.

Hil has been my favorite of Samantha Kane’s Devils from the beginning of her The Saint’s Devils series. He is witty and sharp and has a unique way with words. He is one of those people that can say something and unless you are as equally clever you’ll never catch it. Out of all of Sir Hilary St John’s attributes that was my favorite.
In Devil In My Arms Sam has given Hil a perfect match. Eleanor is quite the clever lady. The word sparring alone is reason enough to go buy this book right now. The whole initial courtship is a series of amazing word spars. Eleanor’s personality does not match my thoughts to historical genteel lady. Nor does her personality reflect the hardships life has thrown at her. Eleanor speaks her mind, she gains a freedom women of her time do not seek out much less acquire, and she is just overall an amazingly strong woman.
All the characters in this series are easily likeable. The situations they face match the time they are set in. Eleanor and Hil have some large obstacles to overcome to get to their happily ever after. They worked for both the story and the setting. All these things combined made for an amazing read that you’ll not want to miss out on.
Having read all the books in this series I believe they each easily work as a stand-alone.
Favorite quote: Hil to Eleanor. “How boring life would be with an ordinary woman when I could have someone extraordinary like you.”
