New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas delivers a scintillating tale of a beautiful, young widow who finds passion with the one man she shouldn't...
Although beautiful young widow Phoebe, Lady Clare, has never met West Ravenel, she knows one thing for certain: he's a mean, rotten bully. Back in boarding school, he made her late husband's life a misery, and she'll never forgive him for it. But when Phoebe attends a family wedding, she encounters a dashing and impossibly charming stranger who sends a fire-and-ice jolt of attraction through her. And then he introduces himself...as none other than West Ravenel.
West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire...not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach. What West doesn't bargain on is that Phoebe is no straitlaced aristocratic lady. She's the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England.
Before long, Phoebe sets out to seduce the man who has awakened her fiery nature and shown her unimaginable pleasure. Will their overwhelming passion be enough to overcome the obstacles of the past?
Only the devil's daughter knows...
Devil's Daughter (The Ravenels, #5) Reviews
Re-read to get ready for Chasing Cassandra's release and I Loved it more the 2nd time!!
**5 "Reformed Rakes make Great Book Boyfriend" stars**
I've been so giddy with anticipation and Kleypas comes through with another winner!!!
Just when I'm not looking forward to a book or overly excited about a character, Wes Ravenel comes along and steals my heart right out of my chest! I mean, he's sexy as sin, honest to a fault, hard working, hung like a horse, and absolutely delicious in bed!
I love that he was once a rake and is now regretful of his behavior and how the people he care about must deal with his past reputation. He owns his past but he doesn't allow it to own him. He works hard and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty in the field with his tenants. And even though he cant't remember the last time he had a woman, the only woman he wants is Phoebe.
Phoebe is the widowed, wealthy daughter of a duke and has been in morning for two years. She promised her husband on his dying bed that she would allow his cousin to take care of her. But what happens when she falls in love with an ex-rake, 2nd son?
This book had me sucked in from the start. The story picks up during the week of Pandora's wedding as the Ravenels are introduced to their soon to be in-laws. I am not a fan of unnecessary angst and there was just enough angst to keep me pining for more of this couple. Oh and the Wallflowers were at the wedding too!! *swoon*
My only complaint was that the ending felt rushed with no epilogue. But what can I say?...I'm a sucker for a juicy epilogue. I look forward to more of this series and can't wait to Chasing Cassandra!!!
Another great read from Lisa kleypas! I loved both West and phoebe and in early books both characters interested me. The writing was flawless as usual,but this was not a typical kleypas love story. Their Was some great intimate moments,but no passionate heat scorching, fan yourself moments that I've come to expect from this writer. I have read just about everything that Lisa kleypas has written and this series has been one of my very favorites. I will say that this a great historical romance and I did enjoy reading this book,I just wished their has been more passion and sensuality like the other books in this series. Until next time luvs💋💖
I loved this book. I adored Phoebe and West.
This wasn't the first time a highly respectable woman had given him the cold shoulder. But it was the first time it had ever stung.
She had been so beautiful there by the stream, as flowerlike as the wild irises on the banks.
Phoebe felt a hollowing sadness inside. There was something melancholy about a train whistle, the twin notes bracketing the air like an empty set of parentheses.
He kissed like a man who had lived too fast, learned too late, and had finally found the thing he wanted.
I feel myself fall into a perpetual state of bliss each time I crack open a Lisa Kleypas book. And this time was no different. I've been eagerly anticipating this book, and now that I've finished it, quite frankly, I don't know what to do with myself. Devil's Daughter was everything I had hoped it would be, and trust me when I tell you that I hope a GREAT DEAL.
Devil in Winter was my very first historical romance. So of course Sebastian will forever hold a special place in my heart not only because of that, but because he also happens to be one of my favorite historical heroes. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book to see his daughter get her HEA. And my what a ride it was!
There’s nothing wicked about you, except your kisses.”
Phoebe, Lady Clare was a phenomenal heroine. She has a sweet and caring disposition, but beneath all that is one incredibly strong woman. Ever since she was a little girl, she knew that she'd marry Henry. Even knowing that their time together would be short, it was worth it. After losing her beloved husband to his illness, Phoebe is left to their slowly crumbling estate with their two children.
West Ravenel was a name she was all too familiar with, since he was the boy bully that made Henry's life miserable at boarding school. Meeting the man is nothing what Phoebe expects. West is no longer the bullying scoundrel but a man that tempts her at every step. I adored the slow burn between Phoebe and West. It was a perfectly paced, swoony, and angsty ride that I couldn't put down for even a second. West was everything that Phoebe needed and nothing what she expected. He was sweet and caring, protective and playful, and effortlessly charming.
And while you see Phoebe's slow decent into love with West, he struggles with his feelings. Not because he denies it, but because after his past he feels himself underserving of someone like Phoebe. My heart ached for him and everything he's been through. And I simply adored the way that Phoebe and her sons slowly but surely thaw his heart.
Of course one of my favorite parts of the books were getting more of Sebastian. I loved seeing him as a husband, father, and grandfather. Age does nothing to diminish his intensity and playfulness.
I, meddle?” His brows lifted, and he looked positively indignant. “Evie, what can you be thinking?” “That you’re meddling.”
“From time to time, I may adjust a situation to achieve a desired outcome for the benefit of my children, but that’s not meddling.”
“What do you call it, then?”
“Parenting,” he said smugly, and kissed her before she could reply.
This book had everything; romance, emotion, angst, and humor. It was everything I've come to expect from this incredibly talented author. I love getting snippets of some of my favorite characters from previous books. And of course I love the way she's able to weave the Ravenels and the Wallflowers together.
West was this amazing combination of vulnerability with a side of broken. This is a man that continues to struggle with the demons of his past and it takes a strong woman to get him to see beyond what he thinks he deserves. And some meddling from her well-meaning father doesn't hurt either.
I loved this book from start to finish and I'm already itching for my next fix in this series.

Find me on:
Reading Lisa Kleypas makes me question whether I should be writing books at all. She is a MASTER, her stories always give me that lovely pang in my chest and the sense of being lost in another world. My plan had been to wait and save this book for when I needed something great to read. Alas, I lasted one week. :-\
That's okay, I'll re-read it. :-)
