Publisher's Summary

Prequel #1 to The Devil DeVere Series – Library Journal Best E-book Romance 2012

Every devil has a beginning...

In this first of three prequels to the award-winning Devil DeVere series, we meet Ludovic, Ned, and Simon as youths in this riotous Georgian romp written in the tradition of Fielding's Tom Jones.

Since their first meeting at Westminster, Ned, Simon, and DeVere had forged an iron-clad bond that had maintained them through nearly six years. From the outset, Ludovic's scandalous family secrets had set him apart from the other aristocratic scions as an "untouchable." Deny it as he tried, the ugly truth remained that his mother was indeed the biggest whore in England, and his presumed father, the viscount, no less than a pox-ridden madman.

Likewise, Simon Singleton's poetic proclivities had instantly made him the bullies' mark, and even Edward Chambers' great size had served as little deterrent for the upper classmen's taunts when accompanied by adolescent awkwardness and a broad North Country drawl.

By the end of the first form, however, DeVere's finely honed shell of arrogance, Ned's increasing brawn, and Sin's rapier wit, had given birth to an unholy triumvirate that came to wreak perpetual and unchallenged havoc upon Westminster School. Now, it appeared their illustrious reign had come to an inglorious end.

Intent on serving up revenge on their tyrannical schoolmaster, a prank with the king's lion goes comically awry, leading to a startling chain of events.

quick! kind of. .. lackluster!

Yes the narrator is awful... truly awful. however to speed him up one and a half or two times the speed makes him almost tolerable. I just don't really see the point in this novella other than a couple of sentences of information.
Credit worthy No! Either buy it on sale or skip it.
Heat factor nonexistent although sexual situations and blatant speech does prevail.

Ok novella by terrible Narrator

Would you try another book from Victoria Vane and/or Guy Veryzer?

I will Victoria Vane books but I will not purchase another book narrated by Guy Veryzer.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Guy Veryzer's narration ruined the feel of the story.
