Adrian Ruxley is usually very easygoing, but he cannot walk away from a lady being attacked.  Seeing the very proper Emma Boscastle being manhandled sends Adrianís protective instincts into overdrive and a scuffle ensues.  Although Alex saved the lovely Emma, he is left wounded and must recover at Emmaís home.  Delighted to be so close to Emma, Adrian finds her irresistible.

Although Emma is very tempted by the handsome Adrian, if she succumbs to her passion for him, her family would be outraged.  Emma would need to keep her affair with Adrian a secret from her overprotective brothers and from the rest of society as well.  Such a secret would be almost impossible to keep from Emmaís very observant siblings.  But the erotic pleasure Adrian gives Emma is too delicious to refuse. 

Although Jillian Hunterís The Devilish Pleasures of a Duke is part of the Boscastle series, it can be read as a stand alone novel.  That being said, I urge everyone to read this entire series as it is extremely enjoyable.  In The Devilish Pleasures of a Duke I was very amused by the lengths the Boscastle brothers were willing to go to protect their sisterís virtue.  Whether she wanted her virtue protected or not!  I adored that Adrian was willing to risk Emmaís brothersí ire to be with her.  My heart melted.  The Devilish Pleasures of a Duke is a sigh-inducing, sensual, blissfully good read!
