It takes a fearless woman to love the most scandalous man alive in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s breathtaking novel 

Even a ghost hunter like Rosie Herpin couldn’t have foreseen the fateful meeting between two mourners that has brought her so intimately close to the notorious and seductive Devlin de Vincent. Everyone in New Orleans knows he’s heir to a dark family curse that both frightens and enthralls. To the locals, Devlin is the devil. To Rosie, he’s a man who’s stoking her wildest fantasies. When a brutal attack on her friend is linked to the de Vincents, he becomes a mystery she may be risking her life to solve. 

Devlin knows what he wants from this sexy and adventurous woman. But what does Rosie want from him? It’s a question that becomes more pressing—and more dangerous—when he suspects her of prying into the shadows of his past. 

Now, the legends surrounding the de Vincents may not be myths at all. But if she’s to discover the truth, she must follow them straight into the arms of the man she can’t resist—the handsome devil himself. 

My Opinion 

My first series ender of the New Year and what an ending! This review may contain Moonlight Sins and Moonlight Seduction spoilers. Consider yourself warned. 

In the previous two books, Devlin de Vincent was harsh, abrasive and kind of an ass. There is really no other way to put it. He was too mean to be a jerk, too in everyone’s business to be uncaring. Half way through Moonlight Seduction I started to think that maybe the issue is that he cares too much. What is it about Devlin that make people call him the Devil? It cannot just be how he was named- it has to be something else. Well, this is one devil that is welcome into my home anytime. 

He is harsh, abrasive even all due to his upbringing. With a father like theirs we’re lucky the de Vincent brothers made it out alive let alone as solid as they are. These qualities make him who he is and who he is- is pretty amazing once you understand where he is coming from. More than anything though, he is a loving brother even if his own brothers do not see it. He sacrificed so much for them, and they have no freaking clue. 

Rosie is an outsider who sees too much. Rosie is who she is and you get what you get from her. She calls a spade a spade and does it with a smile. She has found love, lived with love and lost love all in her short life. To say she has been through enough is an understatement but she keeps landing on her two feet. To have to have gone through what she went through and still be standing- dang if I had half of her strength. She is often underestimated by Dev until that is he realizes it, which of course intrigues him. 

These two together are like oil and water- it works though. Their chemistry is off the charts. Sometimes I wondered if a fire would break out due to their sparks. Tempers do tend to make the passion flow, boy does it flow! 

Moonlight Scandals completes the de Vincent series, all the fray ends are tied up nicely. The mysteries and questions surrounding the brothers are answered. For the brothers at least, the rest of the public well who cares- they are de Vincents after all. 

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars
