Romance Book Review: Devil's Pearl

Author: Dawn Halliday
ISBN: 9781419912092
Genre: Historical erotic romance


Julia knew that she had to leave Devlin if she was ever going to have the life she dreamed of. She wanted to have a husband and children, but Devlin seemed to only want a mistress. That was someone she didn't want to be, so she broke off their relationship suddenly. Leaving Devlin made her life difficult, trusting the wrong man forced Julia to leave London with her reputation in tatters.

A year later she comes back in hopes of resuming a quiet life, but Devlin can't forgive her for what she did to him. At the same time he can not live without her in his bed. Julia has not changed her mind, she still wants something Devlin can't seem to give her. Can these two lovers find a common ground before it is too late?

Set in the Regency area of London, Dawn Halladay tells of a tale of a love lost and the efforts one man goes to get it back. This novella offers romance and love with very steamy erotic love scenes.

After a year of pursuit, Sir Devlin Vaughn has finally found the beautiful woman who made him the laughingstock of London society. Now he intends to keep her as his permanent sex slave, whether she comes willingly or not.

Julia Beaumont escaped Devlin in an attempt to become a legitimate lady. Her plan backfired, leaving her reputation in tatters. Now Devlin holds her in his thrall once again. Can she free herself, or will he enslave her for life?

About the author from the back of her book:
Raised on a boat in the South Pacific and in the quiet rainforests of Hawaii, Dawn Halliday had plenty of time to develop her overzealous imagination. Between exploring deserted atolls, swimming in churning seas, and exploring lava tubes, Dawn started dreaming up stories of love and adventure before she could read them.

When she’s not traveling to exotic lands (which she can always justify as “research”), Dawn lives with her True Love and three rambunctious children in Southern California. She writes passionate historical and contemporary romance, and loves every minute of it.
