Happy Friday Peeps!!!!
Today I am going to be reviewing "The Bride Of Devil's Acre" by Jennifer Kohout. This is a very good historical book, with a plot twist that you see coming only because it tells you in the beginning, but it's good none the less. Plus, it has a beautiful cover and with the title you kinda don't know what your getting until you read the summary.
The summary is as follows......
"Douglas "Devil" Radcliffe has spent years carving out Devil's Acre, an area where the titled and entitled lords of London come to play. But when Queen Victoria proposes a reformation plan to the House of Lords that would have the wretched souls of nearby St. Giles moving into his territory, Devil sets out to buy, bribe, and steal the votes he needs to stop her. One vote short and running out of time, Devil has Lord Edwards' daughter kidnapped and held captive. The price of her freedom? Lord Edwards' vote. Lord Edwards' daughter, Jacqueline's life was defined at the moment of her birth. Growing up in the shadow of her mother's death in childbirth, she has spent years trying to make it up to her father. Now a grown woman, she is torn between her duty to her father and her desire for a life of her own. Irrevocably changed after her kidnapping, Jacqueline tries to put the pieces of her life back together only to find they no longer fit."
I will warn you before anything that there is a very descriptive scene of rape and if you don't like reading books with that in it, then please don't read this book. It will have some sex scenes in it, but there aren't that many. All around I recommend this book, because it has a very good story line and a little bit of mystery to it. Yes there are some violent scenes, but its not the entire book. If you can get past the violent scenes than I believe you will like the book as much as I did. It is a very great historical read as well as a not normal romance.
Hope Y'all Enjoy!!!
Rating: 5/5 Devil's holding his bride.....
