inerIt s a superbly written page turner that kept me reading late into the night Sadly Teresa Denys died suddenly in an auto accident in the late 80s and the world of romance was deprived of a great talent Her only other novel THE SILVER DEVIL is another keeper I ighly recommend them both Wow what a weird and beautiful book My expectations were pretty igh because it s so rare as is Denys only other novel The Silver Devil and they were met for the most part The premise is pretty simple Girl is sold off into marriage to a faceless duke and danger and passion occur in the most unexpected ways with love and Satans Mistress hatred being eual motivesWhat I loved most was Denys economy of language She manages to convey the dilapidated and rotting Spanish nobility and all its various parasites with vivid characters that are described with sharp brushstrokes Sometimes it can verge on the repetitious theeroanti ero Felipe Trist n is described as speaking tonelessly or unemotionally a lot but often it was used to great effect to describe a cast of characters from a nightmarish Goya family portrait There are in bred royal by blows indebted countesses turned procurers greedy uncles lustful and conniving aunts and peasants who will do anything to survive in a kingdom overtaxed and ruled by a social class unworthy of the responsibilityIn the middle of this is Juana de Arrelanos a merchant s daughter who is ripped away from er sweetheart to marry the Duue de Valenzuela While not of the nobility she is imperious with the standing that Tagus the Night Horse (Beast Quest, her family s money giveser and is determined that this marriage nonsense will not go through Unfortunately there are parties that are eually determined that the marriage will or will not in the case of His Majesty Philip IV Love Beyond Limits (Among the Fair Magnolias) happen and they don t much care whatappens to the bride in the process of their machinationsIt s got a very gothic feel to it as Juana is trapped under the spell of insanity and secrecy that Inochi The Book of Life hangs in the air of the Castillo de Beneventes Providing much of the tension and threat especially to Juana s sense of who she really is under the stiff exterior of a proper Spanish lady is the Duue sandler Felipe Trist n He s a giant of a man with flame copper Gol Atan Kaleye hair a scarred face and an attitude that just dares a person to mess withim and walk away Is The Age of Disruption he a tool to break Juana s will or doese Burning bridges have a mission ofis ownI Freshman Scandal (Freshman Dorm, have to admit that I really loved this character even thoughe was an emotionless and mentally abusive bastard throughout most of the story with a few exceptions One of those things a reader can t explain I like what I like He and Juana ave a fierce attraction to each other and neither is willing to admit it and it takes the two of them through murders and other dangers and complications sometimes self inflicted since this is nominally a romanceMy gripes are few since this was a beautifully engrossing book There are coincidences and conveniences throughout although Felipe Trist n s backstory comes into the plot and is revealed uite tidily towards the end a bit too HEA for my tastes Juana stupidly charges right into danger often though always manages to escape sometimes without aid so bully for er and Refusing His Second Chance he and Juana s distrust of each other continues right until almost the very last page It was a bit annoying to stillave them at loggerheads so close to the end but eh whatever There s a lot that makes up for itThe sex isn t graphic no weeping members or dewy lady petals and I thought it was made intense and smokin for it especially the first encounter between Felipe and Juana Caveat lector it s borderline rapeforc.

Flesh and the Devil is only one of two novels written by Teresa Denys pen name of Jacueline Bianchi an immensely talented writer and editor whose life was unfortunately cut short tragically decades

same somber lugubrious gothic mood as The Silver Devil The romance if you can call it that is a battle of wills than a courtship Denysas once again a meticulous sense of the period The stifling customs the gaping class differences and the ruthless politics all take the reader in a time machine back to sixteenth century Spain Add to that the lyrical beauty and Hoopers Pasture from Maine to Vermont highly visual writing of the author and at times you can t seem to put down the bookUnfortunately the novel alsoas some of the annoying tropes of traditional bodice rippers including many TSTL

(A Mate Of His Own him even Denys describesim as aving a great deal of menace and icy control He speaks to Juana with veiled courtesy so she s never uite sure where she stands with im Although the reader does I rather love the way Denys writes There s an elouence and sensuality to Six-Moon Trail her prose that gives the reader the feel and ambiance of 17th century Spain I remember in the beginning Denys describes the Duue s estate Casillo Benaventes with its iron balustrades and the gaudy frescos and I felt like Iad been transported there Her characters address each other with a formality and stiffness that feels like another time period And everybody is so shifty and underhanded Poor Juana de Arrelanos the Mustard Seed Magic heroineas been dropped into a snake pit As for the eroine I didn t mind Juana She does a couple of stupid things that made me shake my ead and I thought she was rather rude to Tristan at first Yet that fits seeing Leftover Dead (Trailer Park Mystery, how she s a proud young noblewoman Her character does go through a character arc ander perception definitely changes At first she truly can t stand the sight of Tristan and she s every bit the The Witches highborn lady I remember reading in another book aboutow when the Spanish ladies of the court walked across a room it appeared as if their shirts were floating across the floor I can believe Juana does this 1 What did you think of the plotstory line I thought the storyline was a bit like The Perils of Pauline Juana gets in one life threatening scrape after another This is especially true of the last Splinter half of the book which I couldn t set down Yet it s not always Tristan savinger Denys surprised me a few times because things didn t always turn out the way you might expect She s a very unpredictable author2 What was your favoriteleast favorite part view spoilerMy favorite part was the end when Tristan and Juana finally came together and admitted their love I don t think I ve read an ending so satisfying since Pride and Prejudice It felt so good to Breed of Innocence (The Breed Chronicles have these two finally talk everything out I actually read the end twiceMy least favorite part wasow the character of Bartolome was The Princes Mistress handled Everyorrible trait imaginable was Immortal Jellyfish handed toim Not only is e orribly disfigured and mentally slow

Rather it was the last bit esp Juana s overdone obstinance re the reveal of er true feelings that irked my nerves enough to round down It was rather like STORMFIRE in that the gorgeous isolated gothic ripper vibe was deflated by an unnecessarily drawn out final act But my uibbles are nit picky so don t let them stop you from tracking down a copy Overall this is an excellent read very well written

kind of pat myself on the back for taking on this book in part Spanish from a poor Kindle translation It was even becoming in that format for some peculiar reason I can t rightly name Maybe due to my only passable Spanish I ingested far meaning or perhaps read into the already wondrous sentiment through repeated readingKarla Willow and several other ladies in my circle already gave such glorious reviews of this book so I will skip the introduction and say I simply adore this book It s rich apprehensive proseeightened the abject misery Denys provided us The gothic aura she conveyed was much as a veil clinging to everything and everyone like crisp linens upon antiue furniture within a sealed mansion Magnifico Sometimes I revisit chapters where Juana is exposed to sheer terror and it still
