Lord Devlin Wayward, gambler and dedicated rake, returns home for the first time in years, and lands himself and his identical twin, Daniel, the good reverend, in deep trouble. Devlin ends up with a broken leg and unable to travel to London, yet he must return. He’s got an important deal that will make or break his fortune. He persuades the reluctant reverend to take his place in London while he temporarily minds his brother’s flock.

Miss Mary Tomblin is taken with the devastatingly handsome reverend. He represents everything she desires in a husband, after narrowly evading a ruthless rake last Season. Mary knows she'll make him an excellent wife, but the vicar rebuffs every advance – until he suddenly accepts her help with pastoral duties while his broken leg heals. Mary seizes the chance to show the good reverend what an excellent helpmeet she will be.

The devil takes on the role of village vicar and discovers it's nowhere near as easy as he imagined—especially when he falls in love with an angel who mistakes him for a saint.


Lord Devlin Wayward is going home for Christmas.  He's happy to leave London for a short while to get away from a woman,  but must return quickly.  His twin brother is a vicar but also has a problem woman.  Devlin takes the opportunity to help his brother.  This has very unexpected results.
Miss Mary Tomblin has travelled to lots of places because of her father's work.  She really wants to settle in a home of her own,  preferably as the wife of the handsome vicar.  She is one determined woman.  She also has a lot to learn. 
This is a really fun story.  Our devilish hero doesn't know how to solve the problem he started,  it just gets bigger and bigger. There are lots of twists and turns and more than a few tears. 
 I loved all the characters and can't wait to read the next book.  
Great fun.


 Liana loves to weave incendiary tales that capture the heart and the imagination, taking the reader out of the now and into another world. The glory and splendor of the 18th Century provides a lush, glittering backdrop for her fairy tale romances. It’s a time of sensuous lovers, passionate music, lavish royal courts and deadly intrigues. Liana lives in Texas with her own dashing hero of nearly twenty years, their delightful progeny, one spoiled-rotten feline overlord, and several tanks of tropical fish. She’s been devouring historical romances since her early teens and is now delighted to be writing them for fellow enthusiasts.
