Devil's Moon by Amanda Scott

Published March 31st 2015 by Forever


The last place Sir David "Devil" Ormiston expected his moonlight chase of a horse thief to end was in a lady's bedchamber. He is shocked to find that the raider he has pursued is no man, but a defiant beauty in disguise-and the woman he's vowed to protect at all costs. Face to face with a girl Dev thought he knew, the ever confident, marriage-resistant knight may learn that he is defenseless against the desirable woman she has become.

Lady Robina Gledstanes will do anything to keep her family's land out of the hands of her greedy kinsmen-except willingly submit to the handsome, cocksure Devil Ormiston. Dev's help may be just as dangerous as the threats lurking outside her castle. But when enemies scheme to steal the castle's treasure, Robina must risk losing something even more precious-her heart.

I've been really busy and I apologize for the lateness of my post. This is going to be a very short review.

I regret to say Devil’s Moon just isn’t my cup of tea.

What I didn’t like: The POVs jumped around quickly and constantly and it left me confused and unengaged with the book. Also, there were too many historical terms throwing me off. I didn’t like having to stop to check the guide in order to understand what I was reading.

What I like: Perfect title! Perfect cover! I like the tension surrounding Rab’s death, and how Robina “Robby” and “Dev” will eventually grow to love each other, even if I didn't find it all that romantic.

Overall: Even though Devil’s Moon isn’t for me, if you love historical fiction with Scottish romance and accuracy, I will recommend it to you.

My rating: 2.5 stars
