Title: Tempting a Devil
In Samantha Kane’s erotic tale of secrets and temptation, a woman whose only defense is seduction targets a rake who teaches her the true meaning of love.
As wealthy and beautiful as she is desperate, Harriet Mercer can have any man she wants—which makes picking the worst of the lot quite easy. By convincing the ton she is a ruined woman, Harry hopes to outwit the greedy, conniving cad blackmailing her into a loveless marriage. Roger Templeton is a rogue with a scandalous reputation, no expectations, and no shame. He is perfect for Harry’s fall from grace. Her brazen attempts at a very public seduction are delightful fodder for gossip . . . and pure torment for Roger.
With his pockets as empty as his heart, Roger is in no mood for games and decides to show Harry how foolish it is to tempt a devil. But behind her mesmerizing golden eyes, he sees something unexpected: a woman in trouble. Her scandalous behavior would be amusing if he wasn’t captivated by her lush, curvaceous beauty. Worse, every libertine bone in his body has turned traitorously noble. Only a rake would seduce her. But only a gentleman in love can save her.

I just absolutely adored Harry and Roger. They make a great couple, but they are just as incredible as individuals. Harriet is trying to be an independent woman in a time when that was just not done. I say trying, yet she really was succeeding. She had a plan. She knew exactly how to get what she wants. What she wants is the man blackmailing her out of her life. The best way to do this is the ruin her name. She has no desire to remarry so what harm can a ruined reputation cause. She sees Roger as the perfect means to her end and the chase is on. Harry proceeds to spend an incredible amount of time Tempting a Devil. The tempting and the chasing make for a very sweet romance with a sensual dose of heat.
There were so many times I almost felt sorry for Roger. As a man he of course knows how to handle any situation. (insert eye roll) Harry keeps him on his toes as she is always doing the unexpected. Roger sees that her behavior is going to make her the target of gossip and he is doing his best to stop her from ruining her name, not realizing that that is exactly what she is trying to do. Roger has the reputation that could easily shame Harry, but he is gentleman enough to try to protect her from the scandal even though she tempts him in ways he never thought possible. This made them such a fun couple to read as they bumble their way to the fated happily ever after.
The Saint’s Devils series has the most fascinating group of secondary characters. I still can’t wait to get my hands on Hil’s book. I do hope we readers get to see more Wiley in that one. In my opinion both books in this series work just fine as a stand-alone.
Favorite quote, Roger to Harriet: “I love the feel of you loving the way I feel.”
