"Jewel of the East" by Victoria Vane was this author's series  'The Devil DeVere #5' and
it was one interesting read. To really understand all that has gone one in this whole series I would
recommend you pick up: THE DEVIL DEVERE SERIES:

A Wild Night's Bride #1
The Virgin Huntress#2
The Devil You Know #3
The Devil's Match #4
A Devil's Touch #4.5
Jewel Of the East #5

and let's not leave out the PREQUEL VIGNETTES:

Devil in the Making #1
The Trouble With Sin #2
Ned's Folly#3

Now, getting to "Jewel of the East" was a very easy quick read of Sin and Salime.  Now, how
did they get together?    Simon had once been a womanizer who had shamed his noble family
a number of times so his father had him sent to the military service.  However, things didn't go
well for him.  What happened that sent Simon back home a broken man?  Who will come to his
aid and help him?

Salime had  exotic life until she is kidnapped and then raised in a harem in Constantinople. Then she is recused by DeVere and brought to London and Salime starts a new life.  Everything seems to be going well of Salime  until she has problems with a 'rival' and so who does she turns to?

We find we have two people that needed help due to "abuses and disappointments they faced."
With both of these two people being a friend of DeVere,  he decides to help both  in the only way he knew to do.  Now, what  and how could he do this?  This is where I say you must pick up "Jewel of the East" to see how this author will bring it all out to the reader.

Be ready for a well written tale that will show what true friendship was for these main  characters  Simon, Salime and DeVere.  I found all of the characters well developed,  well portrayed, colorful and very interesting only to give you a excellent read that once you start reading it will be hard to put down until you are finished.  I love how this author was able to bring in the poetry and oh those
hot steamy love scenes in this romantic story!  I did find this read more serious than the other previous series.

If you would like a wonderful historical romance I would definitely tell you to pick up "Jewel of the East" for a amazing good read. 


  1. Thank you so very much Arlena for the lovely review. Jewel of the East is very different from the typical historical romance. I'm so glad you enjoyed Simona dn Salime's story. :-)
