Overview

Snuggled within the warm embrace of marital bliss, biologically altered army Captain Drake Devilin and his supernatural bride, Sienna, face their biggest challenge to date. Called back for duty in World War II, Drake must leave his amazing life behind and join his troop to fight the Nazis. Although he's certain his new mission is merely a rouse to obtain his most precious commodity, his wife, Drake leaves, but not before giving Sienna a magical necklace in the hope it will protect her against unknown enemies.

Lured from her prosperous island by a sorcerer who is convinced she was always meant to be his bride. Sienna is challenged to play three magical games to ensure her husband's safe return. In each game, a limited time is given to Sienna to immerse herself into a new world, situation, and persona; find Drake; and have him acknowledge her by name. And she can't use her powers to make it happen.

Everything dear to Sienna's heart is put in jeopardy. Willing to fight for the love of her life and her happiness, Sienna takes on the sorcerer in his own game of cat and mouse.

    Devil's Play was a captivating tale with an original storyline.

    Devil's Play was a captivating tale with an original storyline. Full of a variety of supernatural creatures, the author delves into the supernatural realm and creates an alluring world that is dark and sexy. Set in the 1940s, Devil's Play is the story of Army Captain Drake Devilin and his wife, Sienna. Drake is a genetically altered human, and Sienna is a powerful witch. When Drake is called to war, he grudgingly leaves his wife behind under the watchful eye of a trusted friend. When Drake's life is threatened, Sienna is caught up in a deadly game, the prize being her husband and her happiness.

    The book jumped right into the story, which I thought was great at first, but I was expecting the author to go back and explain some of the things we were introduced to. However, that never happened. This is what I struggled with the most regarding this book. When I received a copy of Devil's Play for review I was not aware that this book was part of a series. There is nothing on the book cover or in the description to indicate that it is not the first part of the story. As it was, I jumped right into the middle of a story that I had no background on. While I did enjoy this book, I would have been able to fully understand the characters and their lives and troubles even more had I had the opportunity to read the previous book first.

    I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Devil¿s Play picks up not long after Sweet as Sin ends. Sienna,

    Devil’s Play picks up not long after Sweet as Sin ends. Sienna, a witch and her husband, Drake, a werewolf are deeply in love, but have had little time together due to World War II. Drake is a Army Captain who was genetically engineered to become a werewolf to help defeat the Nazi’s, he does not want to leave Sienna alone, but he cannot refuse the request. He leaves her in the protection of his best friend and gives her a magical necklace to protect her.

    When Sienna is left alone on the island she calls home she is ambushed by a wizard who wants her for his own. He tells that Drake’s fate is in her hands if she does not come to him. The wizard makes a deal with her. They will play a game. If he wins she will be forever his, if she wins she and her husband can go free.

    This story dives right into the action, so if you have not read Sweet as Sin, you most likely will get lost pretty quick. I highly recommend reading the first book first.

    Devil’s Play is a dark, edgy tale that will throw you straight into suspense and desperation right beside of Sienna. The fierce loyalty and love that emanates from Drake and Sienna is beautiful and sigh worthy. From the beginning you sense that the two of them have gone through so much to be together, not only are they both supernaturals, they are a multi-racial couple in the 1940s. In a 21st century world, most of use are appalled by racism and prejudice, this story has racial slurs that might trigger outrage, but it just showcases the time period in which the story takes place.

    The game that the Wizard makes Sienna play is definitely designed for her to fail. The one thing that the Wizard can never understand is the true power of love. No matter the distance, no matter the disguise, Sienna and Drake will always find on another.

    This story shows the power of love and the darkness and ferocity of a person when that love is threaten Dive into a world full of paranormal races, obsession, possession, and love that will last forever.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
