    This is a super ending to the exciting late eighteenth century Legend of the Four Soldiers saga

    A prisoner of war for seven years following the French and Indian War, Reynaud St. Aubyn finally escapes and returns home to London in 1765. He makes it home only to collapse crashing Beatrice Corning's boring in her mind political tea party until the arrival of the uninvited Reynaud, previously declared dead and her uncle named the earl.

    Beatrice has loved Reynaud since she moved in to live with her aunt and uncle and saw his portrait hanging on the wall. She helps him heal physically from a fever and mentally from his incarceration. As she begins to fall in love with the real person beyond just the image, he rhinks of her as his muse, but he needs to know who betrayed their unit at Spinner's Fall and she needs to help him.

    This is a super ending to the exciting late eighteenth century Legend of the Four Soldiers saga (see To Taste Temptation, and To Beguile a Beast). The story line is fast-paced as the disheveled ailing hero returns from the "dead" to fall in love but to also identify the traitor who cost them so much. Although the overarching theme is resolved in an intelligent way that remains consistent to the series, TO DESIRE A DEVIL primarily focuses on the relationship between Reynaud and Beatrice

    Legend of the Four Soldiers Series, #4

    The final book in an amazing series opens with high drama and suspense as the soldier long thought dead is in fact very much alive and has just collapsed as Beatrice Corning's tea party. Reynaud's other friends and soldiers left the battlegrounds in the Colonies knowing they had been betrayed and believing that Reynaud St. Aubyn was dead. Reynaud is the Viscount of Hope, Earl of Blanchard and his return to his childhood home reveals to him that a distant relative has taken his title, monies and lands as his own. Reynaud has survived battles, capture and enslavement in the Colonies by Indians for seven years only to be told nothing is as it is supposed to be. But Reynaud is not going to let that happen - he is the true Earl and he will have his title and all that goes with it returned to him and nothing can stop that, not even Beatrice Corning the beautiful woman living in his home

    Reynaud maybe half-starved from his travels to get home but even he can see that there is something so special and unique within Beatrice that she glows. Beatrice nurses him back to health and is the voice of reason and calm when all else is chaos in his life. One by one all of his former friends come back into his life and the entire time Beatrice is pulling him toward living again instead of staying a wounded and emotionally troubled soul.

    Since the day Beatrice came to live with her aunt and uncle she has longed to meet the man in the painting over the mantle. Even as unrealistic as it should be she had fallen in love with the face of the man who now is in the flesh and more handsome than she tough possible. He tells her the tales of his time as a prisoner with the Indians and as each story unfolds into another she finds herself more in love with him every day.

    But Beatrice has been cared for by her uncle who assumed the title and now she feels a battle of wills is about to put her in a position of choosing one man over another and she is not sure what will happen. But Beatrice is in the way for whoever wants Reynaud to truly be dead and one too many attempts on his life cause her physical and emotional damage. But is Beatrice strong enough to heal Reynaud, bring him back from the shell of a man that he is and show him that love can warm your heart even without a title. Reynaud is fighting his demons but even he knows that with the love of Beatrice he can win over any battle and they can both have justice for their causes.

    This last book in the series takes a very dramatic turn that the reader does not see coming. You never expected the final book to be about the soldier long discussed as dead nor find that his scars run so deep. Though the revelation of the traitor at Spinner's Fall is important to the story it is not as critical and as understanding how Reynaud fought for his life and found salvation in the last place he would have looked his own home. While the other stories are a wonderful precursor to this book you do not have to have read them to follow the plot or fill in the missing pieces. Ms. Holt is an expert at storytelling and each book can stand alone but they are so wonderful together.

    You'll love it!

    All of Elizabeth Hoyt's books are great. This is the 4th of a series, and it ties the 4 books together with a very happy ending. Read all 4!

    Bridget's Review

    Reynaud was thought to be dead many years ago at the hands of Indians. In reality, he was held captive. When he shows up at the family home, they are unsure if this man is who he claims to be.

    Beatrice is hiding something. She is most turned on by a picture that hangs on her uncle's wall. When this man invites her to share his bed, she is more than willing.

    Beatrice is able to look into Reynaud's soul and see him for who he really is. He has feelings for her but he's unable to trust her completely. What will he find is most important? The love of a woman or a title of nobility?

    This is a hot, hot read that sizzles until the very end.
