Review of CHARMING THE DEVIL

CHARMING THE DEVIL
Lois Greiman
Avon, February 2010
ISBN: 978-0-06-184933-6

Faye, who is a witch and has been taken in by the members of Lavender House, is posing as widowed Mrs. Nettles to find answers about Lord Brendier's death. Faye must get close to Rogan McBain, who was one of the last people to see Lord Brendier alive. Because of Faye's "gift" in sensing the truth, she hopes to ferret out the killer, but issues from her past cause turmoil and interfere with her mission.

CHARMING THE DEVIL is a great historical, paranormal read with a marvelous hero, spunky heroine, and an enchanting cast of secondary characters. Let me just state upfront: I love Rogan McBain! McBain is a former military hero, who is described as very large and capable. Because of his great size, many fear McBain, but his rough exterior hides a tender soul. McBain can be tough, when needed, but he is protective and loving to those weaker than himself. Faye has not had it easy, for she was abused as a child and made to use her gifts for an evil man's purposes. As a result, Faye fears and distrusts men. It takes McBain's love and patience to help her overcome her past. The secondary characters are intriguing and come alive on their own, and I'm looking forward to reading the first two books in the series. CHARMING THE DEVIL goes on my keeper shelf.

Note:  This book is owned by me and I gave an impartial review.
