    I LOVE this series and this book was a wonderful addition. Devil

    I LOVE this series and this book was a wonderful addition. Devil in My Arms was a fantastic historical romance that had thrills, mystery, and, of course, some steamy romance. I loved this book!

    Eleanor was a lovely heroine. She has been through a lot because of her marriage, enough that it would have broken a weaker woman. But, she fought to escape and built herself a new life beyond the shackles of her marriage. I loved that she managed to match wits and cleverness with Hil, which is quite a feat considering how smart this man is. I only had one complaint about her and it was that she was kind of rude to Hil, considering he's the one who aided her rescue. A little more gratitude rather than defiance wouldn't have gone amiss. But, otherwise, I thought she was great. She was strong, clever, and very likable.

    Hil was also wonderful. I already liked him from his appearances in the previous books in the series, but this book made me adore him. He's not a very conventional gentleman. For one, social niceties go right over his head.  He might be able to find the missing link in a critical investigation, but he can't seem to figure out when a question he asks for the sake of his ever curious mind might be construed as rude. For another, he has no problem doing anything to get what he wants, be it the woman he loves or a chance to solve an investigation. But, he could also be sweet and kind and there is no denying how smart he is. I thought he was wonderful and I adored him.

    The romance was super hot. The sparks between these two were on fire and they weren't shy about letting their desires known. It was definitely spicy. But, they were also very sweet together. I really liked the progression of how they fell in love, despite doing their best not to. It was sweet. I thought these two were a lovely couple.

    Wiley played a bigger role in this book and I still adore him. He's just so awesome and adorable and I think he's amazing. I really hope he gets his own book because I would love to read more about him.

    The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. There were thrills, mystery, and I was riveted. The courtroom scene, which was about the last quarter of the book, was amazingly done. It had me on the edge of my seat, full of anxiety, needing to know what happens. That was undoubtedly the best part of the book. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect. I think it's safe to say that this series is officially one of my favorite romance series. I can't wait to read more from this series and this author.

    Devil in My Arms was a brilliant historical romance. I absolutely loved every part of it, from the hot romance, to the thrilling mystery. Lovers of romance, this is a book you definitely have to read.

    This is book 3 in her Saint's Devils series.

    Eleanor Enderby is on the run from her tyrant of a husband. After three months of hiding, she is making her way to the sister she hasn't seen in many years.

    Just as she is about to make it to the safely of her sister's home, she encounters Sir Hilary St. John. Is he one of her husband's hirelings that will take her back to him?

    She soon learns that Hilary is one of her brother in law's best friends and that he had been sent out in search of her.  Hilary is instantly intrigued by Eleanor, but must travel out of town on a mission.

    Six months pass and Eleanor's husband has declared her dead and is remarried with a child on the way. Believing her self to be safe, she ventures into the ton under a fake name. 

    Of course, she encounters Hilary again and neither one of them can fight their attraction to one another. They soon embark on an affair that is unfortunately talked about in the gossip columns. Can they risk the safety of Eleanor by continuing their affair?

    I absolutely LOVED this story!  We met Hilary earlier in the series and I loved his being pair up with Eleanor, they were perfect for each other. The banter and wit shared between them had me laughing out loud. I really hope that this series continues because I would love to keep revisiting the characters!

    Oh my! I do love to read Samantha's books. I start reading and her characters grab me up and I am there undergoing whatever tragedy or fun they are having. I felt so terrified for Eleanor with her abusive husband. I have met Hilary St John in previous books so it was fun to see him get all wound up when he meets Eleanor. After that Eleanor' s past comes to the surface. Hilary and Eleanor both dance around their love. Then there is a murder Hilary has to solve. Samantha had me tied in knots! I couldn't put it down but then I would get so wrapped up in it I had to walk away. Please read this book and the rest of the series.

    I have been anxiously waiting for this book since I read The Dev

    I have been anxiously waiting for this book since I read The Devil’s Thief, the first in the series. Hil is introduced as the leader of the Devils and I loved him from the beginning.

    I cannot decide if he is uncaring about how is bluntness is perceived by others or just oblivious. He reminds me a little of Sherlock Holmes. Hil solves problems and finds things/people for both friends and strangers. His help is often solicited by the Prince Regent. He knows the secrets of everyone. He is more intelligent than anyone else he knows and no one ever gets the best of him.

    And then he meets Eleanor.

    It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He is the original Devil, after all. It’s just

    “He didn’t do well in relationships. Everyone told him so. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to have some sort of lasting commitment -- a companion to share his life with -- but he was unable to focus solely on the women with whom he was involved, which irritated them. He was a busy man.”

    Did I mention, and then he meets Eleanor?

    Eleanor is the sister of Harriet who is the star of the second book Tempting a Devil. She is on the run from her abusive husband and has been missing for months. “Harry” hires Hil to find her sister.

    From the very first meeting, Eleanor bests Hil. He doesn’t find her. She shows up at her sister’s house when she is ready to be found. Her plan is to have her husband declare her dead and she will enter society disguised as another woman.

    Hil is fascinated with Eleanor. He expected a timid, downtrodden woman and finds a strong, capable woman who is determined to not be a victim.

    She is taking London by storm and does not appear to be impressed by Hil in the least. Even in the most innocent conversation, she manages to top him.

    Hil is a busy man and she is taking up far too much of his thoughts. Doesn’t she know he has work to do?

    Devil in my Arms is primarily a romance. However, it also has a complex plot involving murder and a tense courtroom drama.

    Of course, everything works out in the end, but the reader is never quite sure how she is going to get there.

    The book is left open for a possible sequel involving a secondary character. I really hope Wiley gets his own book. His character has developed so much since his introduction.

    It’s not necessary to have read the first two books in the series to enjoy Hil’s and Eleanor’s story, but I recommend you do so. This book is my favorite, but they are wonderful in their own right.

    I have not read the previous books in this series and this book

    I have not read the previous books in this series and this book can absolutely be read as a stand alone.  Samantha Kane has a fabulous writing style.  All the characters in this book are very charming. Hil is quite the alpha man.  I love the unique relationship he and Eleanor have.  They both know what they want and have no problem talking about it, especially during their intimate moments. It's fantastic! I also love how the story builds up to a crescendo and then in great mystery novel style, comes crashing down with a scene that has everyone gasping.  I can't wait to read the other books in this fantastic series.

    A Myrt's Review Devil in My Arms by Samantha Kane An Excitin

    A Myrt's Review

    Devil in My Arms by Samantha Kane

    An Exciting Romance That Offers Even More

    This is a terrific Regency romance that comes with something extra. It includes a look at a married woman's rights (or lack thereof) and a view into the legal system of the time. The two main characters are smart, witty and make for a very sexy couple with an intense relationship. The supporting characters are interesting in their own right. The story is full of clever banter between all the characters. The plot is made up of interesting twists and turns. Even the Prince Regent shows up. I highly recommend this book for an entertaining historical romance that will keep you engrossed until the very end.

    I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
